Althea @ Petal Velvet Powder

Hello pretties!
Welcome back to my beauty talk!
Today, I'm gonna share one of my makeup tips with you all. :)
I have a combination skin, which means my skin can be dry or normal in some areas. and oily in others, such as the T-zone (nose, forehead and chin).
That's why I need to apply something to fight the excessive oil when I have my daily makeup on, otherwise my makeup will be disrupted. 
I have been using so-called translucent powder to create a matte look, and this has been my best makeup friend for almost a year.
Sooo excited when I know that my favourite brand, Althea has developed their very first own line product, Althea's Petal Velvet Powder recently.





Inspired by Korean Althea petals, this petal velvet powder is to give skin a silky smooth finish.
It's a colourless facial powder that can be used to set your makeup, give a matte look if you have an oily skin, without dehydrating your skin.
Althea's Petal Velvet Powder is made with micro-fine particles which can also minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines to reveal a flawless, petal-like complexion.
With a single touch, this powder creates velvety, flawless skin for perfect complexion, and also keeps your makeup on all day.



So basically, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder consists of 4 important highlights:
#1 Makeup setting & long wearing
#2 Micro-fine particles and soft, smooth texture
#3 Natural & cruelty-free ingredients
#4 Sebum control & pore blurring



Another highlight is it comes with a x2 thick and fluff puff and also x2 lightweight formula.



Althea powder are made with pure and natural ingredients.
One of the key ingredient is the Althea Flower Seed Extract, whereby the flower seed extract is full of antioxidants that protect the skin's barrier from dehydration and invigorate the skin for a beautiful complexion.





How to use?
This will be the final step in your makeup application routine.
After finish off the entire makeup, pat the powder with the puff gently, especially the areas that contain too much moisture or oil, such as the T zone areas, forehead, and chin.
 



Can you see the difference on my face now? :)
My skin looks shiny, greasy, and oily on the left pictures, however, the powder gives my skin a matt, fairer, and naturally beautiful complexion on the right pictures.
Amazing, right?! :)
 

My thoughts:
Before the arrival of Althea Petal Velvet Powder, I have been using the Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder for sometime.
The features and benefits of these 2 products are very close; whereby both are sebum-control powders, grant a matt finish, as well as made my makeup last longer.
However, I like Althea Petal Velvet Powder just a little bit more because:
#1 The price is much more affordable (sold only RM16 per pack!)
#2 It has ultra soft powder puff
#3 The powder is finer and lighter
#4 It's light, easy to carry around
#5 It has natural ingredients derived from Korea



If you have a combination or oily skin, then you should consider to add the Althea Petal Velvet Powder into your makeup bag right now.
It is now selling @ RM16 per pack at https://my.althea.kr/, quickly grab yours now to have a soft, flawless and even finish on your skin!
