Hello everyone! Althea has recently sent me their latest in-house collection – A’bloom which is a fun new product range! If you are new to Althea, let me do a brief introduction! ūüôā

For years, Althea has been playing an important role in bridging authentic K-beauty to SEAsians. Althea is an one-stop shopping destination where everyone in the world can enjoy authentic K-beauty products at a reasonable price, just as Korean consumers do in Korea. In this post, i will be talking more about the A’bloom Meringue Puffs, Refreshing Skin Mask Pack and BHA Blackhead Blaster.

Dessert anyone? A’bloom Perfect Skin Expression With Meringue Puffs

Althea has launched the first beauty tool in the A’bloom collection. Introducing the first meringue sponge puff designed which was inspired by baking meringue cookies. The lovely, cute pastel pink colour and cookie-shaped meringue puff helps to achieve the perfect skin makeup.

Available in two sizes, the giant meringue puff will provide quick and smooth makeup application on wide surface of the skin while the baby meringue puff will provide fine and detailed makeup application on small surface of the skin with its pointed tips.

The puff can be used both ways to achieve 2-way perfect skin expressions:

1. Moist and glossy skin makeup when the puff is soaked with water
2. Matte and Flawless skin makeup when the puff is not soaked with water

The meringue puffs are made out of non-latex sponge with hydrophilic properties which will
grow 1.5 times bigger than normal size when soaked with water allowing makeup to be applied
perfectly on the skin.

The Giant Meringue Puff (size 48*46mm) will help one to apply makeup quickly and easily was it is 1.5X bigger in size than an ordinary puff. This will allows you to apply your base makeup fast and achieve even coverage for wide areas of the face. The Giant Meringue Puff is a versatile puff which can be used dry or wet to achieve different finishes while the extra large size ensures quick and even application. For glossy, moisturizing finish, soak in water before makeup. For perfectly matt finish, use it dry. The narrow part can be used for detailed makeup such as eyes, nose, lip and curved parts of face. Made of high density latex free foam and non toxic materials, the Giant Meringue Puff is suitable for all skin types (even sensitive ones).  It is soft and flexible to help achieve fast and perfect skin makeup and blends evenly to cover any imperfections.

The Baby Meringue Puff (30*28mm) comes in pack of three irresistibly sweet and versatile puffs to use dry or wet (2 way finish). For glossy, moisturizing finish, soak in water before makeup. For perfectly matte finish, use it dry. Made of high density latex free foam and non toxic materials, the Baby Meringue Puff is suitable for all skin types (even sensitive ones).

Suitable for makeup beginners, the Baby Meringue Puff is fuss-free and easy to use. Because of the ease in application, one can achieve precise makeup and coverage in an instant. Meringue small shape quickly blends into smaller or wider areas for precise application. This multi-angle puff blends easily for perfect detailed and flawless streak-free application. The Baby Meringue Puff is made soft and flexible to allow easy application for hard to reach areas and targeted spot cover. The narrow part can be used for detailed makeup such as eyes, nose, lip and curved parts of face. The wide part can be used for overall face to cover a wide area easily. One puff does it all!

Ceramiracle’s Ageless Delight Beauty Chocolate supplement is made with 70% organic South American Dark Chocolate plus other skin benefiting ingredients targeted at rejuvenating skin to bring forth a natural ageless radiance. This 100% sugar-free and vegan-friendly dark chocolate-based beauty supplement works to improve the skin’s hydration*, this unique chocolate supplement helps to iron out the wrinkles and fine lines*, while delivering a potent dose of antioxidants.

*Based on a placebo-controlled, double-blind ingredient study conducted with 33 volunteers over a 6 week period.

Ageless Delight Beauty Chocolate supplement is vegan, cruelty-free and xylitol sweetened with no sugar. It contains zero fillers, preservatives, dairy, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybeans or artificial flavor. With the Ageless Delight Beauty Chocolate supplement, you can now indulge in chocolates without guilt!

Each box of Ageless Delight Beauty Chocolate supplement contains 20 solid mini dark chocolate bars infused with skin benefiting ingredients such as fucoidan, polyphenols & phytoceramides.

Fucoidan not only stimulates collagen production, but is also an excellent protector of the skin’s natural elasticity, keeping away telltale signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines. Polyphenols are naturally packed with antioxidants which aids in skin firming and rejuvenating its appearance. Phytoceramides help to recreate the protective skin layer that has been lost to time. By binding the skin together and locking in moisture, it improves the skin’s density and restores elasticity.

Key Ingredients:

Packed with a host of nutritional compounds, dark chocolate is an excellent source for the daily-recommended intake for minerals like manganese, copper, iron, and magnesium. It is also loaded with antioxidants like polyphenols, flavanols, and catechin.

Fucoidan is a known antioxidant with in-vivo studies showing the ability to support our skin against external stressors. Fucoidan is also an excellent protector of the skin’s natural elasticity.

– Phytoceramides (from Rice Extract)

These naturally found substances help the skin recreate its protective skin layer that has been lost to time. They bind the skin together, bringing back its youthful plumpness by better locking in moisture and hydrating the skin from within. Phytoceramides have also been shown to improve skin’s density, which in turn aids in the smoothening of the wrinkles, thus giving  skin an ageless radiance.

‚ÄúIt is no longer enough to provide our skin with an external shield that may wear off over time. Our skin needs to be cared from starting with its deepest layers. From skin supplements to healthy foods, there are an abundance of natural ingredients that can heal the skin from within and bring back its youthfulness.‚ÄĚ – Eugene He, CEO of Ceramiracle

Althea x Titi Kamal Collaboration | Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist | Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser

Hello everyone!!!! I’m back with another review post of two products that Althea has sent me~ So blessed to be their beauty ambassador as i have the chance to enjoy the K-beauty awesomeness that Althea have to offer. For years,¬†Althea has been playing an important role in bridging authentic K-beauty to SEAsians. Althea is an one-stop shopping destination where everyone in the world can enjoy authentic K-beauty products at a reasonable price, just as Korean consumers do in Korea.

I will be introducing more on Althea’s Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist and Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser that’s self-designed and manufactured by Althea themselves!

Althea has their 1st celebrity collaboration and its none other than with Titi Kamal who is not only beautiful but also a talented movie star and singer from Jakarta, Indonesia! And on top of that, she is as enthusiastic about beauty trends across Southeast Asia and her passion for understanding what consumers love.. The collaboration with Titi Kamal has resulted in Althea’s first body mist, the Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist ūüíĖ

Titi Kamal is an Indonesian actress and singer with a knack for fashion and style. Best identified by her luxuriously long black hair, she’s a beauty icon that’s captured the hearts of fans all across Southeast Asia.

If you are someone who loves a feminine mix of fruity and floral scents, you will love the Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist. The mist is a sparkling mix of sweet orange and peach, followed by an ever-graceful echo of rosy floral notes. Not overbearing strong, this gentle perfume lingers on the body for a long-lasting scent. It also has a non-sticky formula that feels comfortable on the skin, and it embodies the elegance and beauty of Titi in a bottle, perfect for the urban femme. The combination of these beautiful scents will give you that fresh feeling you need to seize the day. The bottle is perfectly sized (100ml) to fit in your handbag or travel carry-on so you’ll always be ready to impress.

Key Ingredients:

Damask rose-water – Keeps the skin hydrated and gives a gentle fragrance

Orange Flower extract – Refreshes the senses

Elder flower extract – Cools and soothes the skin, while giving out a feminine scent

The Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist has a simple but yet feminine packaging. The bottle is made of plastic with a spray mechanism nozzle. Personally i felt that the nozzle is a little too stiff and i hope it will ‘loosen’ after multiple uses. I have always been a big fan of fruity and floral scent and i love how the Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist has a nice blend of rose scent complemented with orange and peach citrus + fruity scent! It isn’t too over-powering and the staying power is decent as well (I still can smell it after 3 hours of application). Most important of all, it is not drying on skin or leaves behind a sticky film. Retailing at $11.60, i would say that this item is a good buy if you are looking for an affordable body mist.

I have also receive Althea’s¬†Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser which helps extract dirt from inside the pores and to maintain a healthy pH balance of the skin.¬†Combining the powers of a cleanser and serum, the Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser promises to whisk away makeup, dirt, and oil with mint extracts. It also ensures the skin stays cool and hydrated throughout thanks to a dual moisture cell system that envelopes the skin in a serum-like formula. It prevents the skin from drying out and effectively minimizes enlarged pores, keeping it smooth to the touch. This product also helps to balance the pH levels of the skin to keep it working in tip-top shape! Best of all, it’s gentle on the face and suitable even for people with sensitive skins.

Characteristics and Ingredients:

– A purifying cleanser with a serum-like formula

– Removes makeup, dirt and oil without drying out the skin

– Balances the pH levels of the skin to ensure it stays healthy

– Water, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Cyclomethicone, Isononyl Isononanoate, Dipropylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Citric Acid, Hydroxyacetophenone, Disodium Edta, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Citrate, Butylene Glycol, Fragrance Balances the pH levels of the skin to ensure it stays healthy

  • Mint leaf extract – Cools down the skin and soothes irritations
  • Jojoba seed oil – Deeply moisturizes any dryness without feeling heavy
  • Tea tree leaf extract – Has antibacterial properties that purify the skin
  • Water, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Cyclomethicone, Isononyl Isononanoate, Dipropylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Citric Acid, Hydroxyacetophenone, Disodium Edta, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Citrate, Butylene Glycol, Fragrance

You can either use the Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser to remove make up or to cleanse the skin. I’m using it to remove my lipstick and to cleanse my skin (when my skin is feeling oily during mid day). Personally, i will pour a generous amount on a cotton pad and swipe it gently over my face to wipe off grease, dirt and lip stick. If not, you can also pour the cleanser onto your palm and gently massage the product all over your skin in circular motions for 5-10 seconds before rinsing it off with water. However if you are having heavy makeup on, it is highly recommended that you do double cleansing.

I like the light floral scent from the Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser but don’t like the packaging! I’m hoping that it will come with a pump so that usage will be made more convenient. The serum cleanser has a higher viscosity than water but not as thick as an oil based makeup remover. When i first touched the cleanser, i do find the texture a little oily but after application it does not leave skin feeling greasy.¬† After application, it leaves my skin refreshed, clean, smooth and moisturized. It does remove greasy, dirt and lip stick well with just a few gentle swipes. At $11, the Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is definitely worth the buy!

 The Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask comes in a classy black and gold 80ml tub with a protective layer to keep the mask fresh and hygienic. Inside, it contains a plastic spatula to ease application of mask and also keep the mask germs free.

My husband saw the mask and was quite interested to try it out. Since his T-zone is full of black heads, i shall put the Gold Wrapping Mask to good use. Upon opening the mask, you will see a layer of transparent gel on top. Just mix it well with the spatula provided and it is ready to be applied onto the skin. Personally, i find it easier to scoop the mask onto the face and then use the fingers to spread it evenly.

The¬†Gold Wrapping Mask has a thick yet runny consistency (reminds me of milk shake!) and it shimmers! So pretty!¬†Due to the thick consistency, it took about 15-20 mins for the mask to dry before i can peel it off. Will recommend that you apply a thin layer first and then slowly build the layer. Also, try not to apply too much product as it will take forever to dry~ My husband said that there’s a cooling sensation when i applied the mask on and he finds it refreshing! Once the mask is dry and ready to be peeled off, it will feel taut. Before you peel it off, you can test to see if it is dry and just rub the mask on the side and the mask can be peeled off easily (No pain!)

After removing the mask, the black head on my husband’s nose area reduced! In addition, his skin is brighter, smoother and more hydrated! The acne on his cheek area also healed faster than before. The only downside about this mask is that the application is a little troublesome but other than that, it works so well!! Best of all, the mask is really affordable and one tub will go a long way! Try it for yourself today. ūüôā
