Althea DIY Rainbow Card

Althea's DIY Rainbow Card

Today we want to take the time to share a bit more about our #AltheaTurns5 birthday celebration. If you have seen the birthday page on 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.

What do you mean by qualifying orders?
At Althea, there are two types of packing options. The first is the iconic Althea pink box which comes in three sizes (s, m, and l). The second is the Althea Air which is a protective air bubble pack for single or lesser order items that don't fit the box but needs to be protected from damage during transit.

Orders shipped from Korea to anywhere in the world that Althea covers, must arrive in acceptable conditions so we make sure your orders fit either in the box or the Althea Air. If you get the Althea Air, do know that the air inside is from Korea!

be creative, this is your special rainbow

spread the magic with this rainbow card

We know you love a DIY but here's the catch! We're leaving this up to your imagination to make this your very own rainbow. You can be creative and make it into a wall decoration, a hanging "rainbow catcher", a badge to wear proudly, or as a message or greeting card to cheer someone up (just pop it into an envelope or directly into the mailbox).

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!
