I was never one to purchase from international online stores, for fear of exorbitant fees and customs complications. Although I love looking through international websites, my lemmings were never strong enough for me to take the risk of shopping online, paying high shipping fees and potentially having to pay even more fees once the package arrives here in Manila.
That’s why I am very excited that more and more websites are offering free direct shipping! One website that I discovered recently is Althea Korea – Philippines. Althea Korea is a popular Korean beauty shopping site that ships directly from Korea to Malaysia, Singapore and now, the Philippines!!!
The website is very easy to navigate. They offer lots of Korean beauty products – some from brands we have not even heard of – at very reasonable prices. Some products are even on sale!
They ship and delivery quickly, too! I perused the website on the 23rd of January and placed an order on the same day. By the 25th, my order was shipped from Korea and on the 30th, I had a beautiful pink package waiting for me to unbox. Very impressive!!! I didn’t have to worry about picking up my package elsewhere or pay extra fees!
If you haven’t already noticed, I am a sucker for packaging. I love when I receive anything that is beautifully packaged – it makes me feel extra special! The package from Althea Korea was beautifully presented – it arrived wrapped in a hot pink plastic with the Althea Korea sticker logo on the seal to ensure that no one has tampered with your package. The box was thick, ensuring that the products inside are kept safe.
Once opened, the items I ordered were securely wrapped with bubble plastic, and cushioned by pink Japanese paper. It makes the whole shopping experience so much nicer. Here’s a sneak peek of the items that I got.
But wait, there’s more great news! For the entire launching month, Althea Korea – Philippines is offering all new sign ups PHP300.00 in shopping credits, free shipping on orders over PHP1000, Buy 1 Take 1 Daebak Deals, Zero Peso Deals and up to 70% off!
