8:56:00 AM

Hey ladies it has been a while! Just wanted to share with you Althea Korea's new products! The Skin Relief Calming cream and the Waterful Green Bamboo Pads.

Product Info

Retail Price: Php 560
Size: 80ml / 2.7oz
Skin Type: Dry & Sensitive Skin

The Althea Skin Relief Calming Cream is a soothing cream that hydrates and repairs damage caused by irritations and harmful environmental factors.

It is meant to keep irritated & sensitive skin calm and cool and reinforces the skin’s barrier which contains Panthenol and a soothing complex made with 5 soothing ingredients to strengthen the skin.

This is the perfect super lightweight day time moisturizer for sensitive skin.

The consistency is slightly similar to the Fixer Cream, but this one seems to absorb much faster on my skin. It does not leave any greasy or sticky feel.

It also does not leave any sort of shiny residue sitting on top of my skin. After application, I just let it sit on my skin for about 2 minutes, before I layer anything on top. My skin just feels very well hydrated, smooth and soft to touch. Would highly recommend!

My rating:  4.5 out of 5

 Product Info 
Retail Price: Php 700
Size: 100ml / 80 pads
Skin Type: All Skin Types

The Althea Waterful Green Bamboo Pads is a One step moisture pad to provide skin with maximum hydration in an instant. It contains hydrating essence to smooth skin texture and prep skin before makeup.

It can be used as a toner pad.

After cleansing, wipe onto the skin, starting from the center of the face and working your way out before gently patting the skin until the product is fully absorbed.

Or as a mask pad.

For a more concentrated dose of hydration, place the pads onto targeted areas of the skin and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Remove, then gently pat in remaining product into the skin until fully absorbed.

This is definitely effective. I never thought I'd enjoy the Bamboo pads this much. I have combination skin and tend to get an oily T-Zone. So, I love using the pads to refresh my face and get rid of the oil at the same time.

The lightweight watery consistency gives that refreshing feeling. It's like washing your face with water while leaving hydrating powers at the same. I especially love to use this as a prep before makeup. It smooths out my skin while getting rid of any dry patches making my base makeup look flawless and a glass skin-like finish.

I like to leave the tub of Bamboo pads in the fridge, to get that cooling feel. It's the perfect instant eye mask especially when you wake up with puffy eyes. In addition, the cotton gauze fabric material itself is awesome. It is soft enough for the face and it does not tear off. Lastly, it has a very mild invigorating citrus scent.

My rating: 4.5 out of 5

I just find the Green Bamboo Pads, just a little too expensive. But formulation wise, it is awesome!

until next time.
