Chica-Y-Chico Cool Night Peel Off Pack


Warmer days can be pretty detrimental to the complexion. Flushed, irritated skin can be the source of many troubles including itching and breaking out.

Chica-Y-Chico has recently added something to help with just that, and today, we'll be trying out one of their latest offerings, the Cool Night Peel Off Pack, and seeing just how well it performs!

Nope, that's it! We're officially done with blackheads! These unsightly, oxidized pore cloggers have got to go, no questions about it.

No More Smudgy Lipsticks Ever!



Lipstick stains are a pandemic that affects all of us. Creamy, glossy, matte... Regardless of the finish of our lipsticks, we are all victims to this terrible fate. What if we told you there was a product that could allow you to drink from cups, accidentally wipe your hand across your mouth or kiss the cheeks of little loved ones without worrying about leaving behind crimson hued evidence? It could even save you from the dreaded "butthole lip" (where all the lipstick in the middle part of the lips are gone, leaving a hideous outside rim surrounding bare lips)! Saat Insight has a product that allows you to turn any shade of lipstick into one that stays put throughout the day. Sounds magical, doesn't it? Keep reading to find out more!

Masil Color Treatment Dual Tint


The future of hair colour is here, and man, does it look bright! Always one to innovate, K-beauty has recently brought about their latest craze: coloured hair treatments. Different from the traditional dyes we're used to, these products don't actually penetrate into the hair to dye the cuticles of the hair, but rather envelope them in a temporary tint that not only gives you vibrant hues but are actually good for your locks too. Masil has created the Color Treatment Dual Tint range to do just that, and we knew we had to try this out to see if it really works. Here's the beauty breakdown!

Gold Sparkling Box


Luxurious and decadent, gold has been a symbol of wealth and beauty for centuries. As one of the world's most precious metals, gold isn't just gorgeous and shiny, it's beneficial for the skin too. To really welcome in the new year with a bang, it was only appropriate that we curated a box inspired by gold, and thus, the Gold Sparkling Box was born! With 7 products ranging from makeup to skincare, we've got just the box filled with products to bring out the inner goddess in you. Here's a quick breakdown on what's inside!

I Sheet-Masked Everyday For A Week


It's no surprise that we love sheet masks here at Althealand! These little packs of wonder are not only packed with hydration (the cornerstone of K-beauty), but also with nourishing ingredients to suit just about any skin concern you might have. Pampering the skin is a great way to both relax and treat your skin, and there's no feeling quite like kicking back, chilling and soaking up a sheet mask at the same time. However, as good as sheet masks may be, your skin might not really feel and see the goodness if you're not consistent with them. So we've decided to conduct a little experiement to see what would happen if we sheet masked everyday for an entire week. As Althea's official Mermaid, I volunteered as tribute for this experiment (duh), and I'm really excited to see how my skin fares at the end of the week!

Exfoliation - 3 Ways To Renew


Dead skin cells can build up on the skin, causing it to be thick, rough and not as nutrient-absorbant as they should be. It's important to not only ensure that your skin is exfoliated at least once a week, but also to know which product is suitable for what your skin is looking for. This helps to improve cell turnover and promote circulation as well for a healthier complexion. Today, we're going to be exploring 3 main types of exfoliators to breathe some new life into your skin: scrubs, peels and exfoliating pads. Here's the beauty breakdown on this skincare fundamental!
