Limited Edition Althea Ketupat Box Contest

Limited Edition Althea Ketupat Box
Only for Althea Malaysia, Singapore & Indonesia

This year we have decided to do something unusually different for a change. Instead of your festive design box for the Eid celebration, we have decided to take on a quirky path to introduce a popular food that is traditionally served at open houses during Hari Raya or Eid this festive season.

What is “Ketupat” ?

“Ketupat” is a rice cake dumpling wrapped in a diamond-shaped pouch using coconut fronds. Originating in Indonesia, it is also found in Malaysia and Singapore. During festive occasions such as Hari Raya, it is traditionally served with a delicious dry curry stew called “rendang” to guests during open houses. Ketupat is also used as a festive decoration during this time.

Introducing the limited edition Althea Ketupat Box, a giant-size version of the popular ketupat that you could use as a fashion accessory or festive decoration at home.  Available in three different box sizes-small, big, and extra-large. Each size will have a different color theme inside (light green, light yellow, and light purple). 

These boxes are given free for qualifying orders made on Althea Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia during the festive period, while stocks last. Qualifying orders simply meant your order can fit into any of these box sizes before shipping. Lesser or small items will be packed in Althea Air which is a bubble pack to protect your items from being damaged during transit. 

Tip: Buy big items or many items so your order can be packed into a box!

a collector's edition

XL Box Light Green

Big Box Light Yellow

Small Box Light Purple

with a festive greeting included

The limited-edition boxes are our annual collector's favorite. Every year Althea releases 3 - 4 special edition boxes designed especially with a theme in mind. Festive periods such as the Spring New Year, Eid, Christmas, and Althea's Birthday Month (July). 

the best entry will win a $100 Althea Gift Card
we have three to give away

How To Join? ⭐

DIY Tip: Slip in a ribbon inside-out of the box's existing fixture holes to create a handbag!

Earth Day Special : Beauty and The Earth

Earth Day & K-beauty

Since its creation in 1970, Earth Day aims to bring awareness to climate change and pollution among everyone, aiming to inspire consumers and companies to help preserve our planet for future generations. It's important for us to be more aware of how we live and how we affect our environment, not only so that we are always aware of how fragile our planet is, but also so that we can live a more healthy, sustainable lifestyle.

In conjunction with Earth Day (22nd April) we would like to share two ways on how we can help support a greener lifestyle when it comes to beauty products:

  1. Using and supporting vegan & cruelty-free brands
  2. Upcycling & recycling old product containers (empties)


2021 Spring Makeup Picks

2021 Spring Makeup Picks

Annyeong Altheans! The flowers have blossomed and spring has arrived! Although most of us are still keeping our distance and staying safe, some of us have started going back into the world (be it for work, school, or just in general).

Today, we will be sharing all about our new favorite makeup items that are worth checking out.


Interview with Mardhiah Ismail

Hello My Name is Mardhiah of maddybrags_

Makeup or skincare? Which would you say comes first? Our Angel all the way from Malaysia shares why she thinks skincare is as important as makeup in our interview. Hailing from Kelantan, this gentle and bubbly Malaysian started her humble beginnings as a beauty blogger, youtube, and reviewer on Instagram with resources she already has thanks to her sister's advice! 👧

We all know how we started and it is a struggle to show our craft. You don't need high-tech equipment or fancy props as long you know your stuff! Now she has a following of over 20k (woohoo!) 🎉

This is why we admire Maddy, as she brags about her beauty products on her Instagram showing her amazing eye makeup skills and the importance of skincare to prep your face as a canvas before makeup 💖


The Laneige Cream Skin Range

Laneige's best-selling Cream Skin Range

Interview with Prelel Yu

Hello My Name is Prelel of prelel

💖Our next Angel feature is Prelel Yu from the Philippines. She's one of the cutest beauty bloggers ever with her cute cosplays and all things pink and just kawaii! A Korean beauty junkie, Prelel is also an avid Althea shopper right from the start. With her love and support, we just couldn't get enough of how big and fluffy her heart is.

Her feed is filled with all the skincare and makeup reviews she posted, all with an added touch of "prelel" as she sprinkles magical stars 🌟and soft pink to adorn her feed like a fairy garden. She's definitely skincare obsessed as her reviews are honest and detailed and sometimes accompanied with a blog post for her followers to read more (bcoz we know IG can only have that much text space!)

If we could only hug this ball of sugar, we would! Check out her blog at as she is also a lifestyle and parenting blogger on 🎀


Interview with Myra

Hello My Name is Myra of myrabeautydiary

Hailing from a place where all magical staycations happen, our Angel from East Malaysia is no stranger to the beauty scene at the tropical sunny Kota Kinabalu. With a myriad of skincare reviews on her feed, Myra does her am and pm diligently on a daily basis using skincare products tried and tested by her as we watched her IG live one fine day to get to understand her better!

With skin that's prone to breakout, you will notice that Myra's into soothing products such as Laneige's Cica Sleeping Mask and green tea. She even has our skin calming relief range! As such if we were to crown her the soothing queen, she would be at the top of our list.

Her feed is like a playground of skincare products so we kinda know why her feed is called myra beauty diary 💖


Interview with Zehan Ilyana

Hello My Name is Zehan of @skincarerants

In conjunction with International Women's Day, we want to celebrate all things beautiful in life. Whether it be a desk full of beauty products, making your favorite cup of drink, and journaling in your diary, self-love should come first don't you agree? 🧁

But a bit of ranting is okay once a while no? let loose and share your thoughts! And when it comes to ranting about beauty, no one does it better than our Angel from Malaysia! With her whimsical charms and aesthetics, this beauty reviewer also loves everything that life gives to us. She even makes pouring ice cold milk coffee 🍹, so very therapeutic. The ASMR we 😍it! Check out her other feed here where she does a variety of drink recipes you can do at home.

She's also a jewelry maker on her personal feed zehanilyana 💖


Interview with Rika Bajacan

Hello My Name is Rika of @rikatrinaaa

Last Christmas, Althea approached one of our Althea Angels in Cabuyao, Laguna (Philippines) to carry out an important mission to spread Christmas cheer to the front liners and essential workers. It was a heart-warming collaboration with her, our ambassador which involved groundwork and dedication to give out a million peso worth of Kbeauty products from Althea.

A strong single mother of two, Rika not only showed perseverance and strength in her life but also knew what kindness meant for many. As such we didn't bat our eyelashes when we approached her on this "surprise" project together. 

From collecting thousands of products, moving them, and packing each Althea box filled with 6 - 10 items. She went out her way just before Christmas to give 200 gift boxes on the streets and hospitals. Such an act of kindness from our Angel Rika is one of the reasons we interviewed her for our International Woman's Day article.  Thank you, Rika from all of us at Althea Korea 💖


New on Althea: Innisfree Brightening Pore Line

Innisfree's Brightening Pore Line *NEW*

Bringing the powers of Korean nature to the world, Innisfree is well known for using ingredients found or grown on Jeju Island. From their best-selling Green Tea range (harvested from the green tea fields of south Jeju) to the trusty Jeju Volcanic range (featuring volcanic clay from Jeju's Super Volcanic Clusters), Jeju Island is a magical place filled with beauty. The latest Brightening Pore line from Innisfree features Hallabong (also known as Jeju Citrus) harvested on the northeastern side of the island.


Interview with Bubbly Vivi

Hello My Name is Vivian of @bubbly.vivi

Who would have thought a cosplayer would actually be a sweet but feisty young lady from a suburban town in Malaysia? We first got to know her when she started out reviewing beauty products from Althea and that her passion is so great, she would travel all the way from Perak to the city to attend one of our beauty workshops. 

With her love of reviewing skincare products, she has started an Instagram channel dedicated to sharing reviews and content that she creates. We have seen her style changed from the time we stalked her, and we love how she continues to improve with her self-taught skills and improvement workshops such as the one she attended in the city. 

Such passion and dedication to beauty are why we would love to interview her for our International Women's Day month. Secretly, we hope to see her cosplay more when she reviews beauty products!


Different Types of Hyaluronic Acid

Different types of Hyaluronic Acid

Today, we'll be sharing all about Hyaluronic Acid and the products with Hyaluronic Acid that K-beauty lovers love!

First of all, what is Hyaluronic Acid? Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring branched carbohydrate or sugar found throughout our body’s connective tissue. In skincare, there are different types of hyaluronic acid that can be used in cosmetic formulations.

Although its name contains the word “acid”, Hyaluronic Acid does not exfoliate the skin like AHA or BHA, so it mixes well with others and is safe for sensitive skin.

From March 2021 onwards, GCash is now available as another payment method for Altheans shopping in Althea Philippines.

With her bold, eccentric makeup tutorial videos on her Instagram channel, she has garnered an international following of over 50k (and still growing) Congratulations Nida!

Today we had the pleasure of interviewing this fine lady for our International Women's Day month to get to know her more and show how she turns herself into a work of art.
