Review: Althea Korea Mermaid Box

Hi guys!

So psyched to share this post with you because if you love Korean makeup and skincare, this post will be right up your alley. I’ve previously written about Althea Korea and if you haven’t heard of Althea, its THE website for you to visit if you’re looking for Korean beauty stuff. Nothing beats their price point and they have a ton of brands including 3CE, CLIO, COSRX, IOPE, LANEIGE.

So Althea comes out with a few themed Beauty Boxes every month which are curated specially by the Althea Korean Team back in Seoul. All items in the beauty boxes are full sized products and you’ll definitely get a massive bang for your bucks with these. I was sent the Mermaid Box with 7 products for me to try out. I’ve been enjoying them and Im here to share it with you, along with a short review of the products that I’ve tried!

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThis is one of the top best selling Korean beauty product. I bought a bottle of this when I was in Korea last year and I’ve finished that one. Back then, I used it as a toner and I didn’t really like it as a toner. Now I use this as a cleansing water to remove my face makeup and I absolutely love it. It takes off my face makeup so easily but I don’t use it around my eyes coz I have a separate eye makeup remover. As a cleansing water, this is amazing.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESIn the past couple of months, I’ve been keeping my skincare routine very basic with just 4 products and I’ve neglected all my serums and essences. When I got this, I tried it and was pleased with how it works. I use it in the morning before my makeup and it adds that bit of moisture that my skin appreciates. 

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESI’ve not tried this out because my skin is pretty sensitive right now and creams might just aggravate it but I’m gonna give this a shot in a couple of months because the pearls are just very intriguing haha. And it smells nice too 🙂

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThis one, I really like as a makeup primer. It’s really light and moisturizing but doesn’t make my skin oily at all. I reach for this almost everyday since I got it. It does not extend the wear of my makeup but it makes my makeup look fresh and my skin hydrated.

  • Tony Moly Luminous Goddess Aura Crystal Light

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESI’m not a fan of liquid highlighters so I haven’t tried that many but this one is pretty. It’s pigmented and the color is very flattering on my skintone.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThis has been helping my dry hair. The consistency is quite thick but it isn’t too greasy and keeps my hair looking shiny.

  • Chica Y Chico Mermaid Mask

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESThis box also came with a sheet mask and my favorite thing ever is a sheet mask. I can do a sheet mask everyday because it just makes my skin feel and look better and it relaxes me at the same time 🙂

So you see, obviously I find that these beauty boxes are incredibly worth it and honestly I don’t know how they can sell these at such a low price but I aint complaining haha :p The total price of the products that are in this box is RM746 and you only pay MR130 to get all 7 full sized products! The Son & Park Beauty Water itself is already RM121. Howwwwww I don’t get it but I love it! haha

Anyway, I think that this is honestly the best way for anyone to try out Korean beauty products so keep an eye out for Althea’s Beauty Boxes and get them before they sell out 🙂
