If you’re looking for your fix of Korean beauty and skincare this Christmas, Althea Philippines has got you covered. Not only are their products on sale, you can practically choose your own Yuletide treat from Santa Althea! Just put four items in your cart, use the code B3FREE1 upon checkout, and you'll get the cheapest item in your cart for free!

(Sakura) Blooming this season

Just as we guessed, local beauty love Happy Skin has branched out into skincare! The Happy Skin Beauty Sakura Bloom Collection is the brand’s first step into “effortless” skincare, using top quality ingredients and manufacturing in Japan and Korea. The Sakura Bloom Hydrating Skin Booster (P799) is the perfect mist for tired, stressed out skin while the Brightening Peeling Gel (P799) is a gentle exfoliator that reveals softer, brighter skin. Both are already out in Happy Skin stores as well as on happyskincosmetics.com and BeautyMNL!

Sephora’s Not-So-Ordinary Mood

It’s been a good year for Sephora. From widening their beauty to selection to include brands like ColourPop, Kiehl’s, Fenty Beauty and more, the international online beauty mecca is making us salivate even more with news of their latest addition: The Ordinary! The Canadian skincare brand has been making waves for its cheap price tag and great quality formulations, and we'll soon be able to hoard 'em along with our other Sephora staples. As per WWD, The Ordinary’s famous products like the Retinoid ($10) and Hyaluronic Acid ($7) will be available on Sephora’s website and in stores come March 2018. Here’s hoping that Sephora Philippines will also start stocking up on The Ordinary very soon!
