I am a self-confessed K-Beauty Junkie, so when I found out about Althea’s Mystery Box, I got so excited and  immediately added it in my cart!

Althea-wonder-mystery-box

A Wonder Mystery Box contains randomly selected Trendy/Popular K-Beauty Products which can be worth anywhere from P700 to P4000.

It is worth P700 and not applicable for free shipping.  Only 1 Box is allowed per customer and per order, it will be sent separately if you have items other than that, so the P250 shipping fee is automatically applied.

A Mystery Pouch!

I was expecting to receive a mystery box not a mystery pouch! (lol).  I even checked twice if it was really from Althea but sadly it was.  The mystery didn’t end there of course!

MY SAY
I invested P950 (700+250) and got a total of P1,190 worth of products.  I got more than what I paid for but I still feel a bit disappointed, maybe because I got 1 item (It’s my Bong Tint) that is no longer available in their shop which made me feel like they’re giving away items which are not salable.  Packaging attracts me a lot and I was really expecting it to be in their signature pink box as advertised.  I’ve asked Althea about it, they said it can either be in a box or pouch depending on the suitability and the quantity and size of the items.  I’ve got enough items suitable in a box!  Anyway, I still love and trust Althea products but I will never purchase their “Mystery Box” again.
