My JUMBO Pack Review

Jumbo Fruit Mask Pack (40pcs)

Is your skin feeling parched, dull, and have been exposed in an air-conditioned room for extended hours? Do you yearn for a hydration bomb and fix it? Then continue reading as I would like to share with you a “secret” I found that Althea has to offer, EXCLUSIVELY FOR MALAYSIANS!!

If you have not already tried the 4 OG masks Althea has to offer, let me tell you what you are missing out based on my experience with all 4 of em!

the OG fruit masks in peach, lemon-lime, watermelon & avocado!

Ac-Me-Peach Mask: Soothes and helps reduce inflammation when my acne comes for a visit

Water-Me-Long Mask: Showers my occasionally dry but always dehydrated skin with water

Avo-Cuddle-Me Mask: Moisturise and nourishes my skin when it’s flaky and feels tight

Sparkle-Me-Bright Mask: Imparted a radiant glow on my skin tone overall

What about the super exclusive offer that Althea has for us Malaysians? They have a jumbo set comprising of 40 pieces per bundle, 10 pieces each of the range I have listed. On top of that, it delivers locally, meaning that you will be receiving it wayyyyyy earlier than if it were shipped from Korea. 

click here to order the jumbo pack now *ready stock local delivery 2 - 3 working days*

To test how fast the delivery takes compared to the ones directly from Korea, I have decided to take a set myself. The order made was on 10th October, which falls on a Saturday. The parcel was delivered to me on 14th October, which is on a Wednesday. It took just 3 working days to arrive rather than a standard week or more! Get your hands on these lovely babies!

If you have seen the birthday page on www.althea.kr then you know how cute these limited edition boxes are. Every year our birthday boxes are extremely popular and highly sought after! But this year has been challenging and times are hard, so we decided to dedicate our birthday to help cheer everyone up 🌈

We put our thinking hats on and came up with an idea to spread the rainbow of hope through a cheerful positive Rainbow Box and DIY Rainbow Card. 

With each qualifying order made from 29th June onwards, your haul will come in the cutest box ever complete with your very own rainbow at home. The rainbow which is the DIY Rainbow Card comes in A6 paper where you can do-it-yourself by cutting and popping the rainbow out. While stocks last.

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask by DanXLees

Althea's Milk Peel Clay-to-Foam Exfoliant Mask

Have you tried Althea’s Milk Peel Cream Mask? It’s clay to foam exfoliant and mask (talking about dual personality much). I have been a faithful follower after 1 bottle and have repurchased 3 times. Let’s dive a little bit into the ingredients:

How To Use?

Water (Aqua), Kaolin, Glycerin, Disiloxane, Bentonite, Propanediol, Myristic Acid, Methyl Perfluoroisobutyl Ether, Stearic Acid, Methyl Perfluorobutyl Ether, Potassium Hydroxide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Palmitic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Milk Protein Extract, Disodium EDTA, Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Extract, Gluconolactone, Glycolic Acid, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Fragrance (Parfum), Coumarin*, Hexyl Cinnamal*, Citronellol*

Kaolin and Bentonite

Clays that help absorb excess sebum
Milk Protein Extract

Contains amino acids that help hydrate and soothe the skin
Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen Leaf Extract)

Contains BHA that deeply exfoliate pores and regulate sebum secretion

PHA that gently exfoliates and also acts as an antioxidant
Glycolic Acid
AHA that exfoliates dead skin cells and hydrates
Ingredients & Benefits

In terms of texture, it has a very soft and smooth feel that spreads out easily. Think of softened butter, but 1000 times lighter. It does not have a strong scent and its smell reminds me of baby’s formula. When spread on the skin, it takes about 30 seconds to transform to a foam (imagine unbaked meringue), which you then leave on for 1 to 3 minutes. I usually need and recommend 1-minute max, for those who have sensitive skin. For oilier skin types, you can experiment with longer leave-on time.

After 1 minute, I proceed to rinse the product off and notice that my skin is immediately softer and smoother to touch. Also, my skin does not feel uncomfortably tight as I would with other exfoliants out there. On a scale of 1 to 5 on skin tightness, 1 being least and 5 very tight, I would give this a 1.

texture demonstration

I have been using this product on a daily basis and it did not dry my skin out nor did it irritate my skin. The small bumps that I get on my forehead reduced significantly (in terms of size and quantity) and when I stopped using it, the bumps came back. Also, the blackheads on my nose as well as the pores reduced in appearance and visibility. For the gents, I would strongly recommend you to use it before shaving as it helps reduce ingrown hairs, as I did notice before shaving my facial hair.

The downside to this wonderful product would be the packaging. It comes in a vacuum pump bottle which is great for dispensing products until the very last pump. However, it does not consistently dispense product in the first few pumps and the last few pumps. I have experienced this in at least 2, of their packaging. The only fix I did was to knock the product on the sink top, inverted, to get the product pumped out. Hoping that they fix this and make this the ultimate product in their collection.

Great for all skin types, I really do hope that you guys and girls give this a try and I am sure you’ll love it, even for you sensitive peeps out there!

The Skincare Multitasker You Need To Try!

Sensitivities, redness, irritations - all terrible words that make the skin tighten in horrible anticipation. Having a complexion that’s prone to sensitivity can be a pain, especially when you’re trying to look and feel your best. Althea Collection’s Waterful Bamboo Pads have been our favorite way to combat irritations during this season, and here’s how you can use them to their fullest potential!

What's The Beauty Acid?

Let's talk about acids today

“Acid” becomes all the rage skincare beauty word. It is the go-to word to search for your beauty needs for whatever skin problems you have.

One "Holy Grail" of anti-aging ingredient is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has the structure of acid but it is not an exfoliating acid.

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin using a chemical, granular substance, or exfoliation tool.

Why Hyaluronic Acid should be in your skincare routine?

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist.  It is really a good ingredient to have in your skincare products for every skin type.  Hydration and moisturize skin is much healthier and reduce other skin problems.  After all, skin ability to heal becomes slower than snail if your skin is dry along with sort of other problems such as wrinkles or fine lines appearing before you are even 40.

There are 3 types of hyaluronic acid
  1. hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid
  2. sodium acetylated hyaluronate
  3. sodium hyaluronate

You don’t need all three to appear in all your skincare products.  I prefer sodium hyaluronate though.  Hyaluronic acid in your skincare will make sure that the products are not drying for your skin.

Here are some product recommendations for all skin types.

If thick moisturizer is not your thing but you do not want to leave your skin feeling like a desert, then how about this famous slight viscosity toner that does not contain any essential oil and it fragrance-free to moisturize your skin. The hyaluronic acid inside this toner just makes your skin hydrated without the heavy feeling of thick cream.

The most popular HG even among beauty influencers. It contains 96% snail mucin extract and hyaluronic acid that moisturizes the skin, repair and improving elasticity from within. It is made for sensitive skin

This is the Korean version of the famous hyaluronic acid in the form of ampoule that contains all the 3 types of hyaluronic acid which is just perfect for your dry skin. It can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to plump them up. It also contains panthenol and arginine for a protective moisture barrier.

Here comes light, non-greasy texture moisturizer that contains an orchid extract that grows in Jeju Island, a place so rich in volcanic soil.  Combined with hyaluronic acid and squalane, powerful anti-aging that keeps your skin firmness and elasticity.

Never go out of the house without wearing sunscreen to prevent skin damage.  This sunscreen smells like a bed of roses.  With hyaluronic acid inside this sunscreen, this is a no white cast sunscreen that also hydrate your skin while protecting your skin from the harmful rays.

Physical and Chemical SPF: What's the diff?

The sun is no laughing matter, especially when it comes to our skin’s health! Time and time again, we hear about how harshly the sun can damage our skin, and that the best way to prevent that from happening is by applying on sunscreen. Did you know that sun protection comes in two different types? Here’s the low down on all you need to know, plus how to choose a good sunblock for you!

Korean 10-Step Skincare Routine

It’s no secret that Korean women have found the key to amazingly gorgeous skin. The real secret is in the famous “million step” skincare regime they religiously follow. Wholesome and skin-nourishing, this near-mythical routine can have anywhere between 10-17 steps, and (with constant use) improves your skin tone, colour and texture, leaving you with an almost translucent, luminous, youthful glow. While this approach might seem excessive to some, it follows a very simple core idea of what your skin needs: hydration, hydration and hydration! This ensures that it stays plump, bright and radiant, reminiscent of your favorite K-pop stars and actors alike.
