K-Beauty Under A Fiver ($5) - Skincare Edition




We’ve all been there: scraping at the last of our magic cream or squeezing out the last drop of serum. Don’t worry your sweet little purse, because Althea’s here to give you a hand! Just because you’re broke, doesn’t mean you can’t look fabulous. Whether you’re on a student budget or you’re running low on the adult life, we’ve got just the thing to keep both your skin and your bank account happy. Here’s our K-beauty picks under $5 (psst, nobody has to know!).


Etude House Baking Pores Cleansing Tissues - $4.25
Okay, so first of all, this pack comes with 30 sheets. That’ll last you a month if you use one a day! The wipes are soaked in a formula infused with baking soda that helps to deep cleanse impurities, dirt and makeup. Plus, you don’t have to worry about multiple cleansing steps: just wipe and discard!

A’Pieu Gold Silk Blanket Mask - $1.50
Feeling expensive? This luxurious looking mask contains 3 layers and is dripping in a concentrate containing Camellia Japonica seed oil, royal jelly and egg yolk extract. This helps to nourish the skin while it’s layers help to retain its moisturizing properties so you’ll look as good as you feel (also you can get 3 for less than $5!).

Y.E.T. Hello Aloe Vera Soothing Gel - $3.5
Is there anything aloe vera gel can’t do? This one from Y.E.T contains 98% pure aloe vera gel. Put this multitasking product to good use and use it as a face moisturizer, mask, body moisturizer and even a hair mask. Talk about getting a bang for your buck!


It’s My Cleansing Foam - $2.75
This gentle cleansing foam lathers up lusciously to remove dirt and other nasties from the skin without dehydrating it. Don’t let the simple packaging fool you: you only need a little to get a fist full of bubbles, so this product will definitely go a long way.
Holika Holika Gold Monkey Glamour Lip 3 Step - $2.25
Fresh, plump lips never go out of style. Get that precious pout without going under the needle with this 3-step lip treatment containing ingredients like real gold flakes, hyaluronic acid, collagen and honey extracts. You’ll be left with a pout that screams “expensive enhancements” without the pricetag or the pain.

Did you hear that sigh of relief? I think it was coming from your pocket! Make sure you check out these and all our other price savers available on Althea (just search for the names of the products to find them). Let us know in the comments down below which ones you’ve tried and how they fared too!
