Hello, everyone!

Althea Korea launched recently a new product as a part of their Petal Velvet line, the Petal Velvet Sunaway**. As a member of Althea’s Beauty Ambassador Community, (Althea Angels) I had the chance to receive this new product almost the same time it was launched. Althea loves Angels so along with the Sunaway cream I received the whole Petal Velvet Powder collection as well, which consists from three different shades: #0 translucent, #23 warm beige and the 3rd Anniversary Limited Edition #Pink Lavender. ~Thank you so much Althea family!~

Well, today I am gonna tell you all about the new Sunaway cream and a few days later a short review/presentation about the powder collection is coming.petal-velvet-sunaway-althea-korea

From Althea’s website:

Ultra lightweight, this invisible sunscreen is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Damask Rose extracts, ensuring that your skin stays fresh and hydrated throughout the day without any streakiness or a white cast. It has an SPF of 50+ and PA++++, so your skin will be kept protected all day. As part of the Petal Velvet line, it also contains micro-powder particles that give you a smooth, petal-like complexion. 


The packaging is minimal as the general Althea Exclusives line: white and dusty pink color for the bottle, dusty pink for the box and black minimal font as well. It’s a beautiful packaging I would say, classy and elegant and the best part of it, is the secured cup. The bottle comes in 55ml and is suggested to shake it well before using.


When I opened the bottle for the first time I did something I do almost every time I try a new product. I smelt the content of the bottle and I was really pleased to find out that the Sunaway cream smells amazing. The scent of roses is the key scent and this is normal as one of the ingredients is the premium Damask Rose extract which offers intense hydration, while keeping the skin fresh and moisturized.

Damask rose has a natural nanomolecular composition that is rich in vitamins to penetrate deep into the skin, soothing sensitivities and strengthening it for a radiant glow.

The Petal Velvet Sunaway is suitable for any skin type, even for sensitive or damaged skin and thanks to the Geranium Oil the skin is brighter and well pampered.


Technology (from Althea’s website)

Micro Powder Barrier: Microparticles absorb sebum and excess oil from the skin to give a light, velvety finish. As you apply the Sunaway, it replenishes moisture and deeply hydrates the skin.
Hydrating, Fresh Formula: Controls excess sebum on the skin with a micro powder system while Hyaluronic Acid ensures the skin is kept hydrated throughout the day.
Advanced Non-Chemical UV Filter: Applies evenly and smoothly onto the skin without leaving a white cast behind. This is due to an advanced non-chemical UV filter with a more transparent formula. The Non-Chemical UV Filter protects the skin from both UVA and UVB rays as built up a sunscreen filter on the surface of the skin and scatters UV light.

My final thoughts

Living in Greece, one of the sunniest countries in Europe it’s almost impossible not to wear sunscreen every day. That for I want a sunscreen lightweight, that I can wear it daily after my moisturizer and before my primer the days I put on my makeup. (Now that temperature is not so high, after wearing my Sunaway I don’t need any primer!) The Petal Velvet Sunaway is not thick at all, it’s liquid like milk yet blends and absorbs very quickly. The final look is really velvety and silky and while the finish is semi-matte my skin remains hydrated and soft.
After wearing it for more than a week in a daily base, I didn’t notice any breakout and as I wear it for many hours I must say that has amazing longevity. One thing that I can’t stand from any sunscreen is the white cast and fortunately, the Petal Velvet Sunaway doesn’t leave any white cast on my face. The gentle sunscreen leaves nothing but a smooth, petal-like complexion, safe and protected by the sun!
