Althea Addiction #5: Santa Althea is here to save my hair

28 December 2016

A little late to share this with everyone but guess who came home to a christmas present from Santa Althea the other day? 

Yup me. In case you're wondering how to get these super pretty Christmas boxes, all you have to do is place an order now at ! The boxes are available in S, M, L and will only be here til 31st of December, while stocks last! So hurry up and shop shop shop, it's not too late yet! Plus, Althea has just launched their mobile app available on both iOS and android! Check out the promo they have for it below! 

Cool right! You get a pretty christmas box and new beauty products to utilize + an RM30 discount too! (Use the code: MOBFIRST30) If you don't know what to get, here's a sneak peak of what I'm about to order haha

I don't know why but I've only came across the 24k gold mask recently so I'm itching to place a new order asap to get another one of those pretty boxes! Then I could also save on gift boxes/bags too in 2017!! Just put the gifts in an Althea box then I'm done, no wrapping required too haha. Now without anymore delays, let's see what santa Althea gave me!

As usual all Althea parcels will come in this hot pink packaging.

Bubble wrapped nicely so your goodies will be in tip top condition :)

Really love their special boxes because it comes with these cute and pretty cards

The polar bear postcard came with a promo code you could send to your friends or family. I'll just share it with you guys reading this ba~ This code expires on the 28th of February so you can utilize your MOBFIRST30 first then only use this HAPPY2017 next year haha! 

So from the looks of things, the goodies Santa Althea sent me is from their 'Good Hair Day Box' which is perfect because the only hair care I have is my one year twice salon visit for hair treatment! This box has the perfect combination of products to refresh, repair, moisturize, and add shine to your hair. Exactly what I need omg. ((because I own literally 0 hair care products, that's why we've never talked about hair on this blog until today!!))

In fact I'm actually writing this right after my second hair treatment of the year. That way my hair will be able to absorb these hair products from Althea better kan. Before that if you ask anyone about my hair, they'll tell you I have one of the worst hair conditions ever and I have not even went blond yet! So thank you so much Althea for sending me this box of hair care products so my hair can look prettier and not like a broom T v T

First up we have this green tea mint fresh shampoo(300ml) from innisfree. The closest "personal care" product that I use which has a mint flavor to it is my toothpaste so maybe I'll get a cooling feeling when I wash my hair with this? I know my friend Sam just ordered this from Althea the other day, we have matching shoes and laptops and now I guess we're using matching shampoo too!

Next I got is this Scalp Scaling-Program from RiRe. This is a product for us stress-ed out college students. It helps in relieving scalp itching and will also increase the thickness in your hair. Every time I look back at my old photos, the only thing that comes to my mind is how much I've loss since entering college T_T 

These three round massage balls will help spread the product evenly into your scalp

This big bottle here is Piolang's Raspberry Treatment Vinegar. It is known to help fix the balance of oil and moisture in your hair. To use this, after shampoo, sprinkle a small quantity of raspberry treatment vinegar onto the scalp, lightly massage it then rinse it off with water :) 

Containing a number of natural blending oil, keratin, HG-70, this Perfume graphy leave-on treatment from MERIT will help protect your hair from damage and also leave a pleasant fragrance on your hair. Directions is to apply a decent amount of this leave-on treatment onto your hair after shampoo. This can also be applied onto wet or dry hair. 

Next I got is Kocostar's GGONGJI Hair pack. I feel like this is a hair mask I've seen many bloggers raved about so I'm really excited to try this out to see how well this goes on a one time use. This is an intensive self care hair pack exclusively for damaged hair ends. Perfect for those with damaged ends from excessive bleaching + perm.

This one here is Hello Everybody's Biotin oil. This Biotin oil will keep your hair protected from UV rays and up to 230 degree Celsius of heat protection. Similar to most hair oils, this Biotin oil will help improve damaged hair, replenish nutrients in your hair, as well as restrain moisture loss. Proper usage of this oil is to pump 3 to 4 pumps of product onto your palm, and apply it onto dry or wet hair, then massage it gently. 

Last present I got from Santa Althea is this Senseful Lady Hair Mist from Missha. In a scenario where you want your hair to smell extra good but you're running late and you don't have time to wash your hair, use this. After going for a sukiyaki lunch with your friends and you don't want your hair to smell like yummy beef, use this. You're in a public washroom and the washroom doesn't smell good, use this everywhere. Anyhow, this is a hair mist you can use any time and any where. Also, this isn't just a hair mist that will make your hair smell good, this hair mist will also help prevent static and frizz to your hair. Win win kan? To use this product, spray 10-15cm away from your hair and distribute the product evenly using a brush or your fingers :) 

This sums up my gift unboxing from Santa Althea! Once again, thank you Althea for the lovely set of hair products. Remember it's not too late to get your hands in one of those gorgeous christmas boxes! Start shopping now now now! 

Ending this post with a pic of me holding all three sizes of the Althea Christmas boxes! Also for your information, the box Santa Althea sent me is the medium size one and as you can see, there's so many things you could fit in it! So can you imagine how many things I've managed to kept inside the largest christmas box? ^^ 

Until next time! Happy holidays!!
