#AltheaTurns1: Pioneer of K-Beauty in SEAsia celebrates 1st Birthday!

With its daebak deals, awesome prices, and wide range of products, there is no wonder why Althea Korea is currently celebrating a successful 1st year. If you haven't heard of Althea yet (and I highly doubt it), it is a wonderful shopping land where you can get your K-Beauty fix and have it shipped from Korea to your doorsteps. You also get free shipping for orders over PHP1,500, 30 Days Unconditional Return and products are 100% guaranteed Authentic. Their awesome services are currently available in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore.

Instead of receiving gifts for their birthday, we (bloggers) were the ones who received presents and got first dibs on their great birthday deals. Before heading to that, let me show you first my Althea Korea haul! You could say that I currently have a Korean skin care addiction.

I hoarded Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel (₱180) and The Face Shop Rice & Ceramide Moisture Toner (₱190). I've been using aloe gel on my face for months now, but it's my first time using Nature Republic's. It's also my first time to use The Face Shop's toner so I'm looking forward as to how these will work for me.

I got the Piolang 4D Pore Balance Foam & Pack (₱240) as a night cleanser to replace my The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Cream when it goes empty. I also got the It's My Daily Sun Cream (₱240) to replace my Nivea Sun Cream. I am hoping this one's not as sticky and heavy as the latter.

I initially wanted the Innisfree Jeju Blackhead Balm but I got the MeFactory 3 Step Pig Nose Pack (₱80) instead. I'll probably try the former on my next Althea haul. Lastly, I got the It's My Nail-Nippers (₱120) and Red the SAEM Saemmul Real Tint (₱190) for my sister. I think I should have gotten one of those tints for myself.

I also got Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Foam samples as freebies! Honestly, there are tons of products that I still wanted to try such as Laniege BB Cushion, Innisfree Volcanic Black Head Out Balm, and more. I'll definitely get them when I need to restock on my staple products.

If you have noticed, the box my products were in is different from the usual pink (or purple or green) Althea box.  It's because Althea Korea is launching its Limited Edition Birthday Box (same as the one I got) + DIY Party Kit on the 20th of July onwards. This will be included in orders placed on that day onwards until supplies last.

Also from the 20th until the 31st of July, free goodies will be given for first 1,500 shoppers. These will be full size beauty products and until while stocks last. For its birthday giveaway, just pick 3 Top Sellers to get 100% REBATE! The rebate will be credited into your account.

Lastly, you may take part in the #AltheaTurns1 Instagram Contest. Joining is really simple! Got your Althea party kit? Wish Althea Korea a happy birthday by using the hashtag #altheaturns1. Up for grabs are  a chance to wiamazing prizes such as Macbook Air, Ipad Air 2, iPhone 6S, Galaxy S6 Edge, Canon EOS M10 Selfie Camera, Althea credits and beauty hampers from Althea! Prizes total worth KRW10,000,000 are up for grabs. You may send in your entries from the 20th July until the 15th August, 2016.

So daebak, right?! Head on over to ph.althea.kr to check out Althea Korea's awesome products! Like their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/altheaphilippines.

The Body Shop Strawberry Lip Butter Review

When I was in high school and after my Lip Smackers addiction, I got introduced to The Body Shop's Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm in Strawberry. Since makeup's not allowed at school then, they're kind of the only "makeup" (i.e. as a lip gloss) that I could wear. My Born Lippy days may be over but I'm definitely not over The Body Shop products cause I recently added their Strawberry Lip Butter to my daily skin care routine.

The Body Shop Strawberry Lip Butter

I got a Strawberry Lip Butter as a Christmas gift last December and I totally forgot about it until last summer break. I'm so glad that I was able to remember about it because it's turned out to be my current favorite lip product!

Fun and Exciting Outdoor Water Activities to try out this Summer

In some parts of the world, summer is such a luxury. We get to enjoy it for just a few months in a year. One way to make the most out of summer is to enjoy the outdoors. Honestly, there are tons of activities that involves going out such as going to the beach, having picnics, hiking, or camping. But if you are looking for adventure and fun, I am sure that you will love outdoor water games involving inflatables. I am a fan of inflatable water activities because they give an adequate amount of thrill and fun – safe yet exciting. Moreover, this kind of activities is not as extreme as other water sports making them perfect for the whole family. There are several inflatable water games that you could try out this summer but here are some of my favorites:

1. Flying fish
There is nothing more exhilarating than hanging on to a rope while being dragged in open water. This is the kind of thrill that the flying fish would give you. Of course as the name suggests, the flying fish is literally flying off the water as it speeds on. Expect more flying fun when the waves are huge! This water game can accommodate up to 6 people at a time. 

2. Banana boat
If you are looking for a milder ride, this one is perfect for you. Although you will be hanging on to a rope just like in flying fish, you will be seated all throughout, thus, giving you better balance. It can accommodate 8 to 10 people at a time. This one is a personal favorite. Be sure to hold on tight to the rope because you will never know when they will deliberately let you fall into the water.

3. Water blob

For someone living in a tropical country with almost perfect weather all year long, I was confused why I have not seen this kind of water game here. I see dive spots, canyoneering, and all sorts of fun and thrilling water activities but definitely not this one. I think I first saw this one either in a comedy movie or a Korean variety show. Inflatable water roller balls are definitely enjoyable activities especially for groups and families.

These kinds of activities are unfortunately available for rent only in some resorts and recreation areas. And some are unreasonable priced especially in more popular locations. If you prefer to make a long term investment and enjoy your very own inflatable water game, why not get one? Honestly, I do not these are available in local stores. Your best option is to get them online. One of the best online shops to get these is Inflatable Zone. With the reasonable prices and guaranteed quality, you are sure of getting the best deals! Moreover, you could get a free pump with every order of water blobs. Know more about inflatable water games at Inflatable-Zone.com.
