Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review

by - Thursday, August 31, 2017

A website that I've been following until now since the day they launched the website. It's one of the best online beauty shopping website that provides a wide range of Korean beauty products with affordable price. I always look into their website whenever I want to restock some products because they often provide good deals on their website and sometimes the price is cheaper too. If you are following my YouTube channel, you will know that I'm actually quite into their beauty box.

Today, I'm not going to review about their beauty box. I will be reviewing about their first Althea product that was up on their website since 1st August 2017, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder.

The PR box came to my doorstep earlier this August and I was really excited about it. The first thought that I had after I opened the package was: "It's so cute!".

It has a very minimalist-designed container with baby pink color cover and the Althea logo on it.

After you opened the cover, you can see a 13mm thick, fluffy puff for the powder application.

Inspired by the national flower of Korea, this is a little bit about the Althea Petal Velvet Powder:
  • It is translucent powder for makeup setting
  • It is suitable for long wearing
  • Made with micro-fine particle with a soft and smooth texture
  • Made by natural and cruelty free ingredients (non-comedogenic)
  • Provides sebum control and pore blurring effects
It contains 3 main ingredients:
  • Althea: To prevents skin from dehydration
  • Polyphenols: To protect our skin from UV and sun exposure
  • Saponarin: To repair damage skin cells and restore skin elasticity (Anti-aging)

Let's see how it looks after application.
As you can see, the powder is white in color which made me a bit worried at first. I was afraid that after the application, the powder will make my face looks whiter.

However, after applied and blended it evenly onto our skin, it did not look white at all. This is really good because it won't give a brighter tone to our makeup. But it gave a satin finish which made my makeup looked a bit glowy after the application. But seriously, the texture is very smooth after application and it's very light-weighted on our skin too.

As for the pores blurring effect, I personally think that it's still a bit lacking compared to the other translucent powder. And I don't know why, it seems like when the powder set into my skin's fine lines, it made the lines looked more obvious. Other than that, I noticed that it carried a light scent, and it smelled like a flower scent. But, I don't really prefer the scent though. Just not the scent that I will like.


Personal thought:
Overall, it's a good translucent powder as it gives a satin finish, nice texture, good sebum control, average pores blurring effect and so on.... (the list goes on).  The best thing is the retail price of it, it only costs us like RM16, which is a great deal. For anyone that would like to look for a good and affordable translucent powder, Althea Petal Velvet Powder can be one of your choices. However, I still prefer a more matte-finished powder because I don't really prefer the glowy makeup look.

That's all for my review.
I really hope that my review can be helpful in your purchase.
Hope you all like it.
