A-True 에이트루 ~ Heritage From France ~ Unboxing!

This is not a normal unboxing as this wasn’t anything I purchased, nor is it a monthly subscription box.  However, I received so many items, beautifully packaged, that it was just like getting a subscription box. 

Background: Memebox had featured A-True products in their Memebox Mini #3 and I, alas, didn’t purchase that box.  I was “new” to Memebox at that time, so I didn’t think anything of it.  Once I saw the A-True products in that box, I was immediately intrigued and have been requesting that Memebox to either please restock Mini #3 or start carrying A-True products in their shop.  Crickets….

So, I then reached out to A-True (website at http://www.a-true.com/eng) and expressed a desire to purchase some samples from them.  They have a wonderful website and I was so interested in many of their products.   Angela wrote back to me and after asking me what I was interested in, she then sent me out a package from S. Korea ~ she graciously sent these samples at no charge.  It came within 2 days!!

A little bit about A-True ~ from their website:

A·TRUE is committed to conducting its business practices in compliance with ethical management standards and corporate social responsibilities. To become a globally respected brand and trusted company, we believe in standing up for animal rights, protecting the environment, and supporting humanitarian causes. We place our business ethics into practice through strategic social activism.

I really like that they do not do animal testing and are activists in protecting the environment and are a humanitarian company.  This is a company that I would gladly spend my money on.

I opened up my box and wow – it was filled with tons of samples!!   I will proceed to tell you what I received and then, as I try these products out, I will post product review updates in this blog.    I plan to use A-True products this week.

I want to thank Angela and A-True for giving me the chance to try their products and how generous they were with their samples.  I hope that I can purchase the products that work out for me, as I cannot find them on websites that ship to the USA just yet.  I’ve asked Angela about this and will update you with her reply.   I am also interested in their line for oily skin, as the summers out here in the Northeast make my skin so oily.

Their website makes it easy to see what products are what, so this is how I will use them

  • Anti-Aging: Darjeeling Black Tea First
  • Hydrating:  Himalaya Black Tea Moist & Paradise Black Tea Aqua Blossom
  • Dry Skin: Rose Petal Black Tea.  I don’t really have dry facial skin, but I can use the cream on my neck and decolletage
  • Normal Skin: Violet Petal Black Tea
  • Oily/Troubled Skin:  I didn’t get anything from this line which would have included the Verbena Mint Black Tea & Earl Grey Black Tea
  • Whitening: White Snow Tea Brilliant
  • True Active: Real Black Tea

I will post my reviews on the actual products as I use them,  so stay tuned!!

    1. I have not found them yet on Memebox for sale and I am trying to see if A-True will ship to countries outside of Korean – they do have a Korean shop. I think they will ship internationally. I will keep my readers updated with whatever information I find out from them!!
