Althea came out with a new beauty product!

8/26/2017
Hey guys, one question here. Is the weather really hot and stuffy these days, or is it just me? Let me know, you answer will decide if my body is lacking exercise and is protesting by radiating heat...

Anyway, I have terribly oily skin that this hot weather doesn't help at all. Normally, my makeup can only last around 3 hours before becoming greasy. All my scars and insecurities will start surfacing and I will roll my eyes in dismay (yet lazy to touch up).

Thus, mattifying my face is included in my daily light makeup (at work)! All these while I have been using another powder before Althea secretly informed me that they are rolling out their very first cosmetic product -- Althea Petal Velvet Powder! Upon receiving the email, I was like "Woohoo, I feel like a proud mother seeing a baby born!"

What is Althea Petal Velvet Powder?

So this Althea Petal Velvet Powder arrived in the usual pink Althea box, in which this time the box contained some real dried flowers and dried slices of citrus! Upon opening the box, pleasing orange aroma filled the air which is nerves calming.

The packaging box resembles a minified version of the pink Althea box (Althea sure did do their branding well!). Inside the box, there is a tiny, compact and light glass case of only 3g. This is the first time I've ever held such a small casing (excluding eye shadow). Needless to say, this elegant round case will definitely fit into a carrier of any size, super easy to bring on the go!

Review on Althea Petal Velvet Powder?

What I love best about this product is the thick and fluffy puff applicator. Honestly, it's twice the thickness of my usual puff! Ingredients wise, the micro-fine particles are extracted from Althea flowers, which means you will be applying pure, natural, 100% cruelty-free ingredients on your face, while getting a whiff of the mild floral scent. However, because I am allergic to most products containing flowers, thus I did a patch test on my hand beforehand. Luckily, no irritation occurred, so I went on dabbing the translucent white powder on my face.

Just like any loose powder, this Althea Petal Velvet Powder smoothens up my face by blurring out pores and fine lines, absorbs away excessive sebum on my skin to set a flawless, soft, velvety and matte complexion so that no more shiny-reflections can be seen! Sounds cool, right? Yes, it rocks!

For normal skin peeps, this loose powder can last for at least half a day (entire day for dry skin) yet still gives your skin a fresh and radiant look. Yay to on-point makeup! Sadly, for oily skin type like me, you might still require to touch up after a couple of hours to prevent makeup going cakey (same for all other powders I've tried haiz). 

For those who have never tried these type of powder before, the application is really simple. Simply use the puff and dab some powder a couple of times over your face/ T-zones and you are done! It can be worn on its own, or as finishing swipe to set your base makeup. Personally, I use this after applying BB cushion, except for the Instagram photo below which I applied directly instead.

Price wise, I think it's one of the best and affordable deals I can ask for. So grab this at Althea's official website if you love my review!
