I am very proud of Althea for producing their very first product range, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder. I got this for review recently and have been using it daily since. I have always needed a kind of finishing or loose powder but it’s not easy to get one that is affordable and of good quality.
Housed in Althea’s theme colour pink, it comes with a see through bottom casing so it’s easy to know how much product is left inside. The puff is also extremely soft and gentle on the skin.
Inside, it looks a lot like other Korean brands like Innisfree No Sebum powder. However, with Innisfree I usually have a problem with getting the powder out onto the puff. With Althea’s it’s so easy. The right amount is always already on the puff when I open the case.
Like this, once I take out the puff, the soft powder is already on the puff. So just apply it after all makeup is done to take away the extra oil or shine. It has the ability to control sebum, minimize the look of pores and reflects light so your skin can look velvety.
Yes it’s true, I love the silky effect of the powder. It’s translucent totally without any white cast. It’s not the same as using a normal talc powder or even a compact powder as it’s very light.
Available on Althea’s Website for only RM16. Yes it’s a big crazy. I have to look twice to believe the price as usually, this kind of product costs RM20 and beyond even reaching RM40.
Ah I did a video on my first time using this product.
