weird K-Beauty products on Althea
Halloween has just passed and we can still smell the spices from witches’ brew and feel the chill from the breeze as they zoom by on their broomsticks. The autumn air is still thick with falling leaves and cozy gloom as October rolls by. You know this time of the year brings: comfort and warmth sprinkled with a bit of spooky fear and ghouls, topped with a range of weird and wonderful beauty products. As we tread into November, let’s take a quick peek at some of our favorite unconventional beauty treats (no tricks here!).
Piolang Monster Pack
Let us get straight into it: this pack really scared the pants out of us when we tried this on! It applies on liquid but tightens rapidly, making you look like you aged a couple of decades in 10 minutes, giving it’s “monster” look. Formulated with aloe vera extract, arbutin protein, hyaluronic acid and a range of plant extracts, this pack claims to firm skin, hydrate, remove dirt residue and dry skin cells, minimize pores, nourish and brighten up the skin too. Sounds too good to be true? We tried it out here. Take a look for yourself and see if you’re convinced (we sure are!).
now we know how aliens stay pretty

We all know blackheads, dead skin cells and dirt can really wreak havoc on your skin. They can be a real pain in the you-know-where! Banish them away with this mask so that you can strive for a flawless complexion sans the pain of squeezing them out.

The real challenge is seeing if you can peel it all off in one shot!
Piolang CP-1 Protein Clinic (Ceramide Treatment)
Afraid of needles? Don’t worry, this product is skin-piercing free. In fact, it’s not for your skin at all! Bad hair days can really be the horror of the week, especially when your hair has gone through some harsh chemical or heat treatments. This special ceramide treatment will be the answer to your hair problems with it’s convenient (and super cute) syringe packaging with its formula of protein, ceramide, plant oils and complex of 17 amino acids. All you have to do is squirt it onto damp, towel-dried hair and leave on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing it off. Make sure you focus on the ends as those tips usually take the most damage.
what? magnetic mask?
JaseongMin Magnetic Pack
Now, this is what we call a 21st century facial! You’ll be sure to “ooh” and “ahh” when you see this mask literally pulling the dirt out of your pores with magnetism. How cool is that? Made with skin-safe, food-grade iron powder, this mask is infused with skin nourishing ingredients like shea butter, macadamia seed oil, aloe vera leaf extract and green tea seed extract among other great ingredients to clarify and moisturize your skin. Our favorite part? Seeing the magnetic stick pull all that grey product off the skin. It’s oddly satisfying, and definitely very intriguing to watch. Don’t wash off the leftover oil though, that’s goodness for your skin! Just gently massage it into the skin for a deliciously glowy complexion.
