HAPPY NEW YEAR!This just made my day! What better way to celebrate the New Year with a great box filled with PORE-FECT goodies for that PORE-FECT skin all-year-round.
I couldn't be happier to receive these awesome gifts today on the first week of New Year.
Thank you Althea Choy Sun Yeh for sending me this Pore Care BoxAlthea is South East Asia's largest online Korean Beauty store with the lowest prices, shipped directly from Korea. Just last week this Pore Care Box was introduced as part of their Trendy Boxes and it was a Sell out! The total value of this box is RM 469 but it's only going at RM120. Super worth it!!! And the best part is, all the items here are actual sizes, not sample size.
What's Althea Beauty Boxes?
They're curated specially by the Althea Korean Team back in Seoul. Each month, Althea will release 3 beauty boxes for fans to try. They're limited edition and limited in stock, which makes them a "SOLD OUT" Item on Althea. The prices are a steal as all items found in the beauty boxes are FULL SIZE items.
Unlike the conventional beauty boxes where you have to subscribe (and pay). Althea Boxes comes with no subscription fees and no surprises (heart attacks). Buy if you like what you see! Wait for the delivery 10 - 15 working days and unbox it!
Now...Let's take a peek what's in the Pore Care Box.
I will start of with my favourite product in the box.The Mamonde Rose Water Multi Soothing Gel 300ml. This is the full size and it's a pretty huge tub.This soothing gel with rose water extract calms down redness upon application. Even before I apply, the scent of light roses surrounds me and it smells heavenly. I have been wanting to try this product when I first stumbled upon it during Mamonde's roadshow at 1 Utama. And I am so glad to finally have it within my reach. Thanks, Mamasan Tammy for picking this awesome box and sending it to me. You cannot imagine how wonderful it is to receive a gift that you've been longing for.
Also in the Pore Care Box is the famous Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask by Innisfree. I have been looking forward to try this too. So this weekend I manage to put on this clay mask for some deep cleansing. After leaving it on for a good 20 minutes, I washed it off and felt my skin super clean. This clay mask helps to absorb sebum and excess oil from my face. I plan to use it at least twice a week. You should never over use a clay mask as it will dry out your skin. Rotate between a clay mask and a hydration mask on a weekly basis so you get the best of both worlds - hydration (moisture retention) and deep cleansing with a clay mask.
Next I tried the Black & Black Cleansing Foam by Nella. It comes with a pore brush.The foam is mild and gentle with small bubbles (micro foam). This is the texture on my skin. After I wash it off, my face was squeeky clean. Love the feeling.
There were also 2 mask sheets which I have yet to try.
A zest of lemony aroma fills the air when I open this Lemon Sparkling Tub. Individual pads like this cleanses my skin without drying it. I use this when I'm on the go.
The Pore Tightening Fresh Toner helps remove impurities for a healthier looking skin.
This is one very unique pack by Innisfree. It's called the Jeju Sparkling Mineral Powder. I have yet to try out this one.
All the goodies fit perfectly in the signature Althea Box. I have removed the bubble wrap earlier.
Here's a one picture-see-all in the Pore Care Box. OH! There's also an Egg White Peel Off Nose Pack which I missed out earlier.For Althea's other interesting boxes, check out the following:
