Althea's 1st brand product - Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review

August 2, 2017

Annyeong, Aleumdaun! (아름다운) and Hiya, Rookie Mommas!

I'm back with another beauty find review and this time it's a new brand product from Manila's fave Kbeauty online store - Althea.

Althea just launched their first and newest brand product called Althea Petal Velvet Powder. TBH, I only started using loose powder when I got introduced to Althea website. I remember purchasing my 1st loose powder from Althea website and I got the Innisfree because there wasn't really other choices available. It's very limited.


As soon as you open the product, you'll immediately be welcomed with a flowery scent - which I don't find disturbing at all. I have a very sensitive skin and so my skin reacts on overly scented products, and so I'm happy that I didn't get any rash or redness after trying this on with my fave foundation. If you're wondering about the scent, it's almost similar to Philippine's very own Sampaguita flower. At least that's what it smelled like to me. 

I love how the product s packaged. It's very light weight and travel friendly. You literally just grab this and go. Easier to reach out to for those quick touch-ups as well.

If you're on a budget, you'll find that this loose powder is very much affordable at Php210.00. You'll get a 3g packed translucent powder.

I tried this on for a full day with my Clinique foundation and find that it does live up to its promise. The powder is very velvet-y, does leave your skin really smooth and soft to touch. I'd say I didn't need to retouch for about 3 hours. But that's because I am in a well air conditioned area and I have a very dry skin. Especially now that it's rainy season here in the Philippines.

If there's a downside on this product, I'd say that though it is a translucent powder, it strongly leaves a white shade or cast on my face, like it does affect the color of the foundation on my skin. And I am not sure if it's because my foundation and this loose powder is just not going well together, I'll probably try it again with other Korean BB creams or foundation so I can update this for you. And since I do have dry skin, and occasional eczema, I tend not to put on loose powder during this season because it does make my dry patches visible. So what I do, is to just spray on some hydrating aloe vera mist before I pat the loose powder on my face and it should be able to solve my issue within a few hours.

The Althea Petal Velvet Powder is now available in the website for only Php 210.00 and be sure to grab it on your next Kbeauty haul from Althea. :)

Annyeonghi jumuseyo! (Bye, for now!)
