[REVIEW] It's the perfect AHA/BHA product for sensitive and eczema prone skin types!

December 13, 2018

Hiya, rookie mommas and Kbeauty junkies!

It's been a while since my last skincare review but worry not. I'm back and this time, I'm actually super duper excited to share this new discovery with ya!

Althea, Philippine's fave online Korean Kbeauty store recently launched their very own AHA/BHA soft peeling mask. It is a gentle mask specifically made for stripping away dead skin cells on your skin and it is good with any skin types.

Now, you know me and my skin. Having extremely dry, overly sensitive, and eczema prone skin, I usually shy away from peeling products because they usually do more harm on my skin than good. However, I don't really have a decent exfoliating product that doesn't trigger my eczema.

The last product I have tried with AHA and BHA is the COSRX one, which I have also bought from Althea before, and even that product is quite harsh on my skin.

Let's get down to some of the details you might need to know:

Althea's Milk Peel Cream Mask,

  • Its active ingredients are AHA & BHA which help to peel off dead skin cells for smoother skin.
  • It contains Casein Protein (milk) to provide moisture and help the skin to stay moisturised all day.
  • It has a soft clay-like texture that bubbles up when massaged on damp skin to deeply cleanse the pores.
  • It is also cruelty-free!
How to use the product:
  1. Apply the product on damp skin and massage it gently until it becomes bubbly.
  2. Let it rest on your skin for 30-60 seconds before rinsing it off with warm water. 
P490.00 (USD 9) 50ML
FREE SHIPPING if you use the code PBSHIP on all ALTHEA exclusive products.

My Skin Type:
Overly sensitive skin
Dry skin
Eczema prone skin
Breakout prone skin

This cream mask is like a heavy cream that you can easily lather on your skin. But, you have to be quick because it foams and bubbles really fast.

This cream mask smells like my baby! It smells really gentle, fresh, almost like a baby powder. Having sensitive and eczema prone skin means I have to use products with little to no scent at all because it triggers the eczema. Good thing, the scent on this one was not too much for my skin.

Really thick, creamy but easy to spread on your skin.

The Milk Peel foams and bubbles really fast upon contact on the skin.

This is what it looks like after 30 seconds...

And this is what it looks like after 60 seconds.

How I use it:
I pre-wash my face with Althea's contour cleanser, I pat dry my face and apply the Milk Peel after. I rinse with warm water, followed immediately with the Primer Water, and then followed by my Elujai Propolis Serum. 
Once a week - every Wednesday night.

Althea's products is either a hit or miss for me and all I can really blame is my skin type. I'm so glad that I got to try this product because I can finally say that I have found The One - the one and only AHA/BHA product that will work on my skin type.

The Milk Peel is super gentle even on my dry, sensitive, and eczema prone skin. Upon contact on my skin, I did not feel any sting or itchyness. There were no redness after I rinse, and most importantly, it did not trigger any dry patches or my eczema.

After rinsing, my face felt really relieved. It's been a while since I've used any exfoliating products so I guess my skin thanked me for this. The roughness was immediately gone, it was almost as if I got an instant baby face effect. No kidding!

I received this product middle of November and I gave it a full 3 weeks so I can give my full and details review and here's a few things I want to share as well:

  • This Milk Peel is super gentle on the skin.
  • No sting, no itchyness, no redness after - However, on my second try, I do have one huge pimple on my nose that I just popped, so when I applied the Milk Peel, it did sting a little, but only on that area.
  • Follow the 30 - 60 seconds rule - On my 3rd try, I kind of went over 1 minute because I was doing some work while it was on my face and I kind of forgot so it felt like the product was sucking the moisture away from my skin. So, use a timer!
I now use this regularly with my skin care routine and I am super happy! I actually just ordered a new bottle for my aunt to try.

If this product worked it's magic with a skin type like mine, then I can honestly say that this product will also work on you! Trust me!

Grab it while it's still available! :)
