Diary: Althea X Get it Beauty

Althea Angels Welcome Gift Kbeauty

Ship Cho! ūüôĆ Skincare that only takes 10žīą/10 seconds! ‚Źį.

Containing real green tea leaves ūüćÉ and rose petals ūü•Ä, Althea’s Real Fresh Skin Detoxers is perfect for those who are always on the go. It’s so fast that when EXID’s @jeonghwa_0508 put it to the test, she actually found that it’s even faster than brewing a cup of coffee! ūüėć‚ėē.

I have something to share with everyone! If you remember, I reviewed¬†Althea’s¬†Skin Detox 10 Second Mask a while ago and I mentioned that the product was involved in a collaboration with¬†Get it Beauty – well, I’ve now received a clip from it’s feature on the show and it’s pretty exciting! Even moreso is that some of the Althea Angels got featured in the SNS mention (all y’all girls are so pretty). In this video, the mask is tested out by EXID’s Jeonghwa who, in just 10 seconds, found that her skin felt super hydrated after (and she looked radiant too!)

As a recap, here’s the product description taken from the¬†Real Fresh Skin Detox Set page:

The hustle and bustle of the urban life mean non-stop hectic schedules, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give your skin the lovin’ it needs! Althea’s Real Fresh Skin Detoxer is a 10-second, 2-in-1 cleanser pack that showcases real, fresh ingredients and incorporates them into a system that allows a deep, clarifying cleanse while boosting the skin with nutrients and goodness. You‚Äôll get both editions in this set:¬†Rose (made with French rose petals + extract to refine the skin)¬†and¬†Green Tea (contains Jeju green tea leaves + extracts to purify).¬†This product leaves the skin feeling fresh and looking smooth for a healthy, happy complexion!¬†

New Release: Petal Velvet Sunaway & Powder (Althea)

Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway Kbeauty Sunscreen Review

These products were provided to me by Althea for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

I am a firm,¬†firm believer in the importance of using sun protection and it’s pretty rare for me to go out without it (although whether or not I use SPF on my body is another question – one which I should fix up). At the moment, I have three sunscreens on rotation in my routine: one which is a staple HG product and the other two which I tried out recently.

Being a part of the Althea Angels community, one of the biggest benefits is that we get access to information about new releases (and sometimes the actual products) before the launch date and I was pretty excited when they announced their news sunscreen! This is meant to be both hydrating and with sebum control properties, so it really fits in perfectly to what I usually look for in SPF.

I have tried out this product, the¬†Petal Velvet Sunaway, for a handful of weeks now and I have to say that I’m pretty satisfied with this product! It is also very affordable at USD$10 on their website – which is always a benefit. In the same range, there is also the Petal Velvet Powder, which I will touch on briefly as they are available¬†in a set for USD$13 – 10% off the retail price.

So, let’s get right into this review/new release post!

Review: You Glow Glen Coco Kit (Dear, Klairs via Althea)

Althea Angels Dear Klairs Kit You Glow Glen Coco Review Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Supple Preparation Facial Toner and Toner Mate Cotton Pad

These products were provided to me by Althea for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

Dear Klairs is a brand that I had tried before in the past, and that had very good quality and simple products that worked well for my skin. When¬†Althea Korea reached out to the Angels community about reviewing a handful of their products, I jumped onto the opportunity right away! They put forward three different ‘kits’ (these are not sold in kits but were paired together in this way for blogging and review purposes) and I chose their¬†You Glow Glen Coco Kit – which, aside from having the coolest name, I figured would work best for me as it contains brightening and antioxidant products.

For this kit, I ended up reviewing three different items: the Toner Mate 2 in 1 Cotton Pad, the Supple Preparation Facial Toner (pictured below is the smaller travel size, not full) and the Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop Рwhich is a very popular product that I had been curious about for a while!

So far, I have used these products for a good amount of time so I have some great thoughts on it. However, I will also continue to use them (especially the Vitamin Drop) to see how I go with longer term results.

And, without further ado, let’s get on with the review!

Review: Magic Solution Skin Powder (Onsaemeein)

Onsaemeein Magic Solution Skin Powder Kbeauty Review Althea

This product was purchased with shopping credits I was gifted by Althea Korea. I selected products myself and was not obligated to write this review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

With all of these¬†insane break outs that I’ve been getting lately (which only gets worse when I’m at that time of the month), this seemed like the perfect time to finally try out the¬†spot treatment from¬†Onsaemeein. This is called their¬†Magic Solution Skin Powder and I bought it from¬†Althea¬†as part of my birthday order: I received some credit to use in my birthday month as part of their¬†Althea Angels community but did end up overspending because that’s what I do.

It’s actually been a month since I had the product but I had been holding back because I wasn’t sure how to use it. I’m completely new to these skin powder treatments so there was a bit of a learning curve when I learnt how to use this. I think that it’s a handy thing to have around and, as I use it more, I’m learning the best way to apply. However, this is definitely not a replacement for regular skin care and is better as an ’emergency’ product for random break outs. This will not be suitable for people with problematic skin, if that makes sense.

Let me try to break down the pros and cons of this product. I don’t have photos of the application, as it is a little too messy (and I am embarrassed of my face), but I hope you find this useful either way.

New Release: Real Fresh Skin Detoxer (Althea)

Althea Angels Welcome Gift Kbeauty

This product was provided to me by Althea for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

Hands up if you want to take good care of your skin but never have the time for daily masks Рnight time or day?

I feel like if I put that up as a poll, most people that I know would absolutely agree. Especially for those who live busy city lives, it can be really difficult to find that me time so Althea Korea created this product especially for us. This is the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer and it is a totally new release from the brand. They collaborated with Get it Beauty TV Рa Korean beauty show that, inside from introducing new beauty trends, also features educational information with beauty professionals (dermatologists, skin care specialists, pharmacists and etc); and the resulting product is one that is truly unique!

This product is a 10 second, 2-in-1 (both a cleanser and a mask) to provide your skin with the extra care that it needs without holding you back from your busy schedule. I tried this out for the past two weeks or so and I’ve found really great results from using this! Of course, the product also has its flaws which I will be discussing too.

And, onto this review/new releases feature! It’s a bit of both.

Spotlight: Althea Angels Program

Althea Angels Welcome Gift Kbeauty

If you follow me on¬†Instagram (and you totally should), you may be aware that I was recently accepted into¬†Althea Angels – a beauty blogging community that was recently started by¬†Althea. I have purchased from them before (see my previous haul here) and I’m really,¬†really happy with their service so I was more than happy to be recommending them to my readers. Being part of this group is really exciting because the company is now actively giving special offers and opportunities for us writers and reviewers. Without any pressure at all to speak positively about their products, they are simply supporting the industry and I think that that’s a really great thing!

So, as part of this, I recieved a package maybe a week or two ago as part of my ‘acceptance’ – this is the¬†Althea Angels welcome gift! I will be posting this at the same time as my¬†Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Review, so this is just a brief one to show off everything that I recieved.

Before I get into this post, I also want to wish Althea a special Happy Birthday! They have just celebrated their third birthday and I really want to congratulate them for not only establishing an amazing online store and service, but also being able to have such a great global reach. Yay!

Unboxing & Review: Althea

Althea Haul Review Banila Co Laneige Skinfood Innisfree

With all of the make up that I tend to buy while I’m on holidays, as well as the blogger gifts that I get (which I am so ridiculously happy and thankful for, seriously), I actually don’t buy make up as much as people think that I do. In fact, I think this was my first purchase since coming home from Japan – which I think is pretty impressive with my shopping addict history. This time, I decided to try out a new online store that I had seen my other blogger friends posting about on Instagram –¬†Althea. I’d heard such great things about them and I loved the professionalism of their website, so I went for it.

For this order, I needed to buy a refill for my HG cushion, the Laneige whitening cushion, which isn’t exactly a cheap cushion to be using. I was having trouble finding places online that sold only the refill, so I settled for buying another set but I was searching online for where I could get the best deal – especially since I also didn’t want to pay exorbitantly for shipping. I did see it online at other stores but, at the time, they were out of my colour and I could only find it on an ebay store (which I had never heard of and couldn’t find proper reviews for) and on another online store that I have decided not to purchase from again in the near future because of their poor customer service and ridiculously slow shipping (where products aren’t going out of the warehouse because of understocking). Both of these places, I was very uncertain about buying from so I was so happy when I came over Althea!

What won it for me was that, aside from selling the Laneige cushion for a very fair price, they also had in stock the limited edition Banila Co x Taeyeon colour kit that I’ve been desperately trying to get on my hands on. It was a quick decision and here I am.

Read for my haul post and remember that this is not a sponsored post. This is my own shopping experience that I enjoyed so much, I had to share.
