Althea Korea launched the new A’Bloom collection last month and as an Althea Angel, I had the chance to try the whole collection. Although I had to wait almost a month to receive the products, finally everything arrived and I was really excited to try the four new sheet masks, the BHA Blackhead blaster and the puffs (the Giant Meringue Puff and the Baby Puffs).
Pamper your skin while having fun. The new fruit sheet masks come in four different versions, they are made with a thin and elastic tencel, and contain 25 grams of essence. All the masks are suitable for any skin type and they are also cruelty-free. Let’s see them one by one:
The Superfood that is Super-good
This mask is rich in antioxidants in order to nourish and protect the skin from harmful environmental factors and also to prevent wrinkles. It is infused with avocado extracts and hibiscus for soft supple skin that glows. The key ingredients are Adenosine, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Fruit Extract and Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract. This was the first mask I tried from the collection and I have to admit that works really good on my dry skin leaving it soft, glowing and youthful.
That’s Just Peachy
This is an anti-blemish mask which purifies and soothes irritated and sensitive skin. It’s Infused with peach extracts and tea tree oil to regulate oil, balance moisture and purify for soft smooth skin. The key ingredients are Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract and Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract. If your skin is sensitive and irritated then this mask is for you; The slightly acidic essence helps regulate the skin’s pH level protecting also skin’s barrier.
Simply The Zest
Combination, dull skin? You found the perfect mask! This brightening mask clarifies and brightens dull skin to unveil the natural glow from within. Because of its double dose of Vitamin C from lemon and lime extracts, banishes dark spots while green tea boosts brightening and calms the skin. The key ingredients are Niacinamide, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract and Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract. My dry skin sometimes looks dull and blurry and this mask offers the brightness and all the glow when I need it the most.
Keep calm and stay hydrated
The last mask is my favorite one as hydrates and moisturizes my dry skin to the maximum. It’s also calming and I love using it after a tired day. This mask packs a punch of hydration and moisturization for water-full skin that lasts. It’s a delicious drink for skin with watermelon extract and added lavender to calm the senses. The key ingredients are Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract and Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract.
I never many or big blackheads, just a few around my nose so usually I don’t have any product to remove them, except scrubs and peelings. But I was really curious to try this new Blackhead Blaster that Althea Korea launched recently. For anyone with a lot of and big blackheads this product helps remove them easily and with no pain at all. This first natural BHA stick removes blackheads painlessly. It’s travel-friendly also, small size to have it any time in your bag. Thanks to its gentle yet effective formula purifies and clarifies pores instantly and deeply cleanses the blackheads.
The Blackhead Blaster contains a mixture of apricot seed powder, charcoal, and tea tree oil which tightens pores and clears the skin preventing new blackheads and whiteheads from forming. It is suitable for all skin types, even for sensitive skin as it’s natural and doesn’t irritate it.
How to use it
After cleansing your face, glide the stick onto targeted areas and gently massage for a few minutes. Then you can rinse it off with lukewarm water and take away any oil and all the dirt. The stick can also be used as a quick scrub for the elbow or the heels.
Although as I mentioned already I don’t have a lot or big blackheads and whiteheads the stick works really great and disappears any existed blackheads I have around my nose. It doesn’t irritate my skin and I have used it already 3-4 times last week without any concern.
The third product in this new A’Bloom collection from Althea Korea is the Meringue Puff which comes in two sizes. It is made with latex-free and non-toxic materials so it’s suitable for any skin type, even for the sensitive skins. They are soft, flexible and soooo pretty (in pink shades).
The Giant Meringue Puff
expands to 1.5x larger and can be used wet or dry. Blends effortlessly and the wide part is perfect to use for overall face to cover a wide area easily (apply the foundation) while the narrow side can be used for detail makeup such as eyes or nose (I love using it to apply and blend the concealer under my eyes and around my nose). When is used wet it gives a glossy finish and when it’s used dry offers a matte finish.
As for the Baby Meringue Puffs
they come in a set of three and in two different pink shades. Soft and bouncy, they offer precise makeup and coverage in an instant. They can be used wet or dry just as the Giant Meringue Puff and they are perfect for application on targeted spots. Not forget to mention that they can be cleaned easily and quickly.
All the products can be found at Althea’s Korea website. The masks come also in a package of 10 sheets and they cost only $0.5 (1 mask) or $3.5 (10 masks). You can get 20% off your first order at Althea: https://share-us.althea.kr/x/rfOxCt
