Hi guys! Today, I'm going to do a review of Althea Korea new product's which is ALTHEA Petal Velvet Powder. For the first time, Althea Korea has finally bring their own product to be released to all Korean beauty lover. Before that, I feel like announcing new kpop trainer to the public but in the form of product or items. So glad!hahahaha



ALTHEA Petal Velvet Powder is a product that was inspired by Korean Althea petals, Hibiscus syriacus (also known as Korean Rose/mugunghwa) and obviously the ingredient is natural and suitable for all skin types. This petals powder works to keep sebum production at bay without drying out the skin for a radiant, fresh look, all while giving out a gentle scent. Aside from making your makeup set in place, it also make your makeup looking great throughout the day. 

If you are still new with korean product and don't know who is Althea. Well, basically Althea is a largest online Korean beauty store that selling Korean product at a very lowest prices and the best things is they ships your product directly from Korea.

Let's move on into the review!

The box itself is pink and has logo at the center and the actual product comes with small transparent jar container and the cap is soft pink colour. It's compact, sturdy and contains 3g of products. Inside, we have soft and fluffy puff applicator. It has a very soft material so that you can apply directly on your face.



Ingredient for your perusal:

SILICA, MICA, VINYL DIMETHICONE/METHICONE SILSESQUIOXANE CROSSPOLYMER, DIMETHICONE/VINYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, METHICONE, HIBISCUS SYRIACUS SEED EXTRACT, HYDROGENATED LECITHIN, 1,2-HEXANEDIOL, GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE, MALTODEXTRIN, FRAGRANCE

Contain silicon which make your makeup stay put even when you sweat and mica to reflects light from the face (shimmering properties) which create natural glow on your face. Contain hibiscus syriacus seed extract and fragrance.



You can use the product to dust on all over your face, T-zone area, C-zone area or you can used it to "baking" under your eye area, chin, forehead or to contour jaw line area to make your contour more prominent.

The scent smell like dry flower or hibiscus syriacus seed extract. The scent is pleasant and mild. The powder is white and the texture is very finely milled, lightweight and soft. It doesn't feel rough at all.



Because the powder is white, the finish look very matte and natural on skin and feel a lot smoother which I am super glad! The powder set my foundation nicely even when I used the powder to bake/set the foundation. It won't make my makeup cakey at all. Since this is translucent powder, it doesn’t have coverage. It doesn't leave any white cast which many loose powder tend to. It does control the oil so I don't feel greasy on my face. Perfect to control oil. However, the powder tend to disappear after 4 to 5 hours under my chin area and my nose area. In general, I'm totally satisfied using this product.

Pros:
- Super cheap and affordable
- Smell dry flower is very refreshing
- It sets the foundation nicely
- Skin feel soft
- Quite good in controlling oil
- Blur out the pores

Cons:
- I think that the holes inside is too big for me which the powder tend to fly everywhere which I need to be extra careful when open the product. I know, I'm just too rough when open the product.
- The puff doesn’t work perfectly for translucent powder. I prefer using a powder brush instead of the puff.
