Althea Korea Born This Way Box Unboxing


I'm pretty sure you've heard about the song Born This Way by Lady Gaga. But did you know that Althea Korea actually has a beauty box with the same name? 

Find out what's inside the Althea Korea Born This Way Box now!


Althea Korea is your go-to website for everything K-Beauty. If you've already read my post about my Althea Korea Sun-Kissed Box, then you've already got a clue about what Althea Beauty boxes are.

It's a themed beauty box with about 6 to 12 full-sized products (depending on the value) where you have the chance to try a mix of their bestselling products and some new ones. The best part about these boxes is that you don't need to subscribe for an X number of months. If you see a box that you fancy, you can immediately add it to your cart and check out. The downside of these Althea Beauty Boxes are that they're limited quantity. And just like this Born This Way Box, it's already sold out as of the moment. 

It actually retails for PHP 6,690 but if you availed this box, it's only PHP 1,370.

Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Foam

Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Foam
"The most important step to creating soft baby-like skin is cleansing! Rich in antioxidants, green tea prevents your skin from aging and soothes damaged skin from UV rays. Keep your skin looking young and feeling soft with this gentle cleanser."

First Impressions:
I have seen a lot of people rave about this cleanser, but unfortunately, my skin wasn't behaving properly when I tried this out. I was in the middle of an acne breakout because I took biotin capsules. Sad to say, I couldn't see the full benefits of this cleanser during those three weeks, so I think I'll try this again when my skin starts to clear up.

What I did notice though is that the facial cleanser is super gentle on my skin. It feels amazing and smooth, and it lathers up quickly. It smells just like tea which might be a bother for some, but I found it rather relaxing. After rinsing with water, my face definitely feels clean, but not dry. It feels very smooth and soft, and it didn't strip away all the moisture from my skin. This is truly great for people with sensitive skin as it's not drying. 

Beuins Nutrient Emulsion Skin Review

Beuins Nutrient Emulsion Skin
This product helps prevent your skin from dehydrating after cleansing and keeps your skin moisturized all day. Dehydrated skin can lead to fine lines and wrinkles appearing earlier than they should. Keep your skin hydrated all day with this highly concentrated emulsion made with natural ingredients.

First Impressions:
What is that smell? Oh, wait, it disappears on skin within seconds. Those were honestly my first two thoughts when I started using this Beuins Nutrient Emulsion Skin. 

The packaging looks high end and the pump is amazing as it dispenses the product with ease. And so going back to the smell.., it smells like an ointment or a cream that's kind of minty. Not much of a fan, but happy to say it goes away after about a minute or two. The emulsion is very, very watery and once applied on skin, it is absorbed within seconds. It has a little cooling effect and it really does immediately hydrate your skin. My skin absorbs this faster than a normal moisturizer does, and I think I'll be needing this in the colder months as my skin gets super dry and sensitive. This would really be a skin-saver in December.

Dr. Mind Apot Red Mask

Mask pack for intensive skin care on stressed, irritated skin. 

First Impressions:
So, my 9-year-old nephew got a little scared when he saw me using this mask. That was quite a laugh! I mean, you don't see someone with a red mask on an everyday basis right? 

Anyway, I told you I had an acne breakout right? So, I used this mask the night before, and the next day when I woke up, my skin didn't look too oily and my face wasn't red from all my acne. It didn't cure my acne breakout overnight, but if I had a few words to describe it, it would be that it calmed my pimples down. This would be a good emergency mask for my wedding. Haha.

3CE Back to Baby Pore Velvet Primer
Baby-like skin is smooth, flawless, and have no pores. For this complexion, even out the tone of your skin first. This primer makes the skin a perfect canvas with its creamy texture that controls oil and blurs imperfections on your skin.

First Impressions:
Now, this is a keeper and it's become my current favorite primer. 

I'm not a fan of the packaging. You know how those toothpastes feel like when you squeeze them at the middle instead of at the bottom creating a big dip in the middle, this has the same concept and the OC in me is getting triggered. Hahaha! I just don't like the packaging. I'd prefer that it comes in a pump or a plastic tube.

But for the primer itself, I think the picture above does justice on how this 3CE Back to Baby Pore Velvet Primer can even out your skin tone and minimizes the appearance of pores. The primer feels like a mousse or a cream that applies smoothly on skin and hides your skin's imperfections creating a perfect canvas as described.

I think I'm going to do a separate review on this one because I really, really like it and it deserves it! Love, love, love this 3CE Back to Baby Pore Velvet Primer!


Etude House Dear Darling Ice Cream Water Gel Tint Review

Etude House Dear Darling Ice Cream Water Gel Tint in Watermelon Red
Fresh red lips are the trademark of youthfulness. Complete the baby face look with this refreshingly sweet shade. 

First Impressions: 
I've seen this trend in a makeup group because of its cuteness, but I wasn't really into lip tints during that time. BUT now that I've been introduced to K-beauty, I find myself using lip tints almost all the time and this Etude House Dear Darling Ice Cream Water Gel Tint in Watermelon Red has been a go-to for work. 

I wake up really early in the morning and I leave the house around 5 a.m. So do you see why I like this tint? It gives off natural red looking lips instead of the vivid red lipstick that would shock people at those wee hours. It's a watery-gel-tint that can be applied also as a blush, but I prefer using this as a lip tint. It applies sheer but the color is very buildable and it has a sweet taste. This is a perfect gift to your friends this Christmas, and because of its cuteness, you don't even need to wrap it up!

Max Clinic Catrin Natural 100 Mineral Sunkill RX Powder
Another step for a youthful look is to use products that protect your skin from UV rays. 100% natural mineral powder keeps the skin looking fresh and brightens your skin tone while covering blemishes and enlarge pores.

First Impressions:
The packaging is bulky. BUT it's definitely travel friendly if you're going to bring it to the beach. It comes in a plastic case with a mirror attached to the cap and there's a sponge inside which you can just puff directly on your face and neck to apply the powder. This mineral powder provides light to medium coverage and it also has SPF 46. I just find the powder puff too big whenever I use it and I tend to put so much. I find that it does mattify my face and it keeps the oil and shine away for about 4 to 5 hours. I think the mineral powder itself can be great for baking your under eyes, but I'll have to use another sponge.

For a youthful look, go light on the eye makeup. Use the same color for eyeshadow and blusher for a monochromatic look giving off a fresh lively appearance. 

First Impressions:
I'm not really great with eyeshadows because I'm more of an eyeliner girl, but the difference I noticed was that black eyeliners tend to make my eyes smaller, while coral eyeshadows made my eyes look bigger. 

This eyeshadow is a matte coral that instantly brightens my eyes. I don't know how it does it, but I kind of look more awake. Haha! I mean, I'm only getting about 4 hours sleep everyday, and whenever I use this, my eyes look more awake which was weird, but in a good way. This Aritaum Mono Eyes Eye Shadow is definitely something to keep in mind if I have a meeting and I'm taking an all-nighter. The packaging is super cute and very travel friendly, so I can chuck it inside my makeup bag. Plus the color is super pretty and even though it's an eyeshadow pan, I can also use this as a blush.

Pure Smile Art Point Pack

These point pack patches are great for hydrating specific areas and perfect for traveling too. It contains fresh grapefruit extract to even out skin texture and brighten the skin.

First Impressions:
These masks are super cute and moisturizing especially when you put them in the fridge! I've always had dry under eyes, so when I saw that these face masks were hydrating, I immediately knew I had to put some in those problem areas. The heart-shaped-strawberry-glasses were too cute but it didn't really cover my eye bags, so I had to put some tears... which was still super cute! Haha. I wore these for around 15 to 20 minutes and you can feel the cooling effect it has and I noticed that it immediately made my under eyes feel moisturized. I hope this mask had a ziplock so I can keep and reserve some of the other masks for another day, but I just decided to put them inside the fridge. 

What I like about these masks is that they aren't sticky like the others. Some hydrating masks feel gooey and sticky once you remove them, but I've never had that experience while using these Pure Smile Art Point Packs. They're super cute and a must-have whenever you have slumber parties... or I guess in my case, a bachelorette party? Lol. 


Althea Korea Born This Way Box 
Instead of paying PHP 6,690 for all of these products, you could get it for only PHP 1,370 if you purchased the Althea Korea Born This Way Box. As I said above, this box is already sold out because these beauty boxes sell like pancakes.
