I presume most of us owns a loose powder. Occasionally you might even have one in your purse or beg for touch up. I am also quite certain that if you are one of my frequent readers, you might already know Althea is famous for selling different brands of Korean beauty products. After the birth of Althea about 2 years back, they have finally decided to launch their very first product, Althea Petal Velvet Powder.
From the name itself, you might have a rough idea on how the packaging might looks like, what colour the packaging might be or even have a guess what is the main ingredient in it just by the name. Packaging? Hmm… most loose powder comes in either a big or small container, so it should be something similar as well. Unless it comes in a more creative way that you can spray your loose powder out of a spraying container. Haha gotcha! I am just kidding, let’s move on. Althea boxes are usually Pink, so most probably for their first ever product it will be pink as well. As for ingredients, most probably they have althea flower as one of their ingredients.
- Tada! This is how the packaging really looks like.
Glad to be one of their pioneer to receive the product and use it. So why did they come out with Althea Petal Velvet Powder instead of any other cosmetics? In my own opinion, I think even though you’re a beginner or an expert in the makeup industry, your first impression and how you look is very important. You don’t want to turn up with flawless eyeliner, brow that is on point but your face looks oily and with make up that melts after a few hours. This is where Petal Velvet Powder comes in, this powder helps to sets your makeup as well as leaving your skin looking flawless. They infused Althea seeds oil to keep sebum production on bay without drying out your skin. This means a fresher, more radiant looking you!
- What I received from Althea 💕 Their signature box along with tiny flowers and leaf, a slice of air dried orange and lime along with a cute plastic print out of @altheakorea Instagram account, how cute 🙈 Most importantly, Althea Petal Velvet Powder.
So do you know what the powder is made of? Powder + Pure Natural Ingredients = Non Chemical Product which is good for your skin 🌺 So WHY Petal Velvet Powder? Their Powder are made with micro-fine particles, which would make your pores visible 🎊 to invisible. (shrinks the pores) Let me summarize the benefits for you :
- Makeup Setting & Long Wearing
- Micro-fine Particles & Soft, Smooth Texture
- Natural & Cruelty-Free Ingredients
- Sebum Control & Pore Blurring
Do you know how does an Althea flower looks like?
- Althea Flower
Why include Althea flower in the powder? You may be wondering why this flower apart from thousands of others, it is because the flower’s seeds consists full of antioxidants that can protect our human skin barrier from dehydration. What’s more? It invigorate the skin for a beautiful complexion.
How to apply?
Pick up product with a brush or puff provided and gently sweep onto skin
My opinion ~
I really love the packaging, even though it only have their logo on, but it looks classy. Sometimes with too much design on it will looks quite messy. It is small and light, suitable to bring around as it can fits straight into your bag or purse. The scent of it, it has a light Althea flower smell. The smell wasn’t too heavy which I think it’s perfect. After using my the powder on my face I can really see the difference, my pores was minimize. Lastly would be their puff, it is so puffy and soft.
As for what I think they can improve would be the size of the packaging. Instead of only having one size, why not come out with a bigger size as well which is suitable to put at home. It will be easier to apply compare with the smaller size puff. Next, I think they should come out with a skin colour puff. After using just once, my puff from white turns brown. =( It was cause by the layer of foundation on my face before applying the powder. I think if there is skin colour, user wouldn’t realize it and will feel much more happier when using.
Thank you Althea for the product. Really love it. 💕 My final rating for this product would be 4/5. 🌟 You can purchase it from the link below.
