Unboxing & Dolling up with Althea Makeup Collection

A few weeks ago, I received another surprised box from Althea. Upon unboxing my early Chinese New Year gift, I was gleeful to find concealers, lip tints, eye shadows, eye glitters and a tube of skin relief gel in within. Time to have fun with Althea's new makeup line!

My daily makeup to work has always been light and straightforward. Yes, the typical "no makeup" makeup look using BB cushion, concealer and finishing powder. Occasionally, I do enhance my lips or eyes using lip tint/lipstick or eye shadow just to give my features a little "pop".

The main reason I keep to a simple makeup is that I am always in a rush. The only time I can spare for makeup is like 5 to 8 minutes. This time, I want to challenge myself to do a slightly complex look that is suitable for work within my timeframe too.

Skincare preparation Before I apply any makeup, I always make sure to cleanse my face, then to apply toner and moisturising cream to complete my skincare routine. You can use…

Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser Review

I wear simple makeup to work every day. Therefore, makeup remover and cleanser play a big part in my daily skincare routine.

Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist Review

What I want to share today is another new product from Althea! This time, Althea launches a Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist that smells exactly like a perfume!

This product is a new creation under the collaboration between Althea and Titi Kamal, an Indonesian top movie star and singer. Who knows she is also another beauty enthusiastic who gets the chance to create her own body mist!
First Impression Honestly, I first impression on this product is not positive. I was expecting a minimalistic and chic design like all other Althea products. However, this product arrived in a floral bottle instead. It doesn't feel classy. It is not that I usually buy things based on packaging, but this product really doesn't give me any trustworthy feeling as a customer. Since the container is non-translucent, I don't know what to expect.

With much reluctance, I pressed the nuzzle and sprayed out some pretty fine mist. And then... I sneezed! Ok, I had a nasal allergy.

Well, it is supposed to be…
