Althea A'Bloom Collection

by - May 18, 2019

Althea recently unveiled yet another fun and interesting collection.  I love how this bunch speaks truly of the brand.  The products suit the needs of modern urbanites, which are focused on quick skincare fix.  They also did not forget to add some cuteness to the whole thing, from concept to packaging.

Have you seen these yet?

There are four masks to choose from depending on how your skin is feeling.  You could get the boost you need from any of these juicy sheets.

Each pack contains 25g of essence.  The mask itself is made of 100% natural eucalyptus and it adheres well.  It shapes the face nicely and it's a breeze placing it properly in one try.  

Unlike other mask sheets I've tried, these are thoroughly soaked and the formula is not so much on the watery type.

I picked Ac-Me-Peach since my face has been a bit spotty lately.  It's basically an anti-blemish mask that helps soothe the skin and regulate oil.  It's infused with peach extract and tea tree oil, but surprisingly, it doesn't smell like one.  It has the same scent as with Althea's Bamboo Pads and Calming Cream.

Water-Me-Long mask is like a moisture treat for the skin.  It also contains lavender extract.  Imagine drinking a watermelon smoothie on a hot summer day.  That's how you quench your skin. 😚

Avo-Cuddle-Me mask is packed with anti-oxidants to nourish the skin and fight aging.

Sparkle-Me-Bright, the citrusy one is made for those who need rescue from dull skin.  It comes with a double dose of Vitamin C from lemon and lime extracts plus, green tea for extra radiance.

I'm not sure if it's just an introductory price, but as shown on the website, each pack costs 20 php.  I mean... wow.  You could definitely stock up on these! 😯

In this collection, they also included a wonder stick for the pores and it's called BHA Blackhead Blaster.

The stick is formulated with BHA from willow bark for chemical exfoliation and apricot seed for physical exfoliation.  It also contains charcoal, which we know a great pore cleanser and tea tree oil to keep the excess sebum at bay.

As you rub it on, it feels like a gentle facial scrub.   It melts like butter and there's no stinging sensation whatsoever.  The scent is also light and not irritating because it smells like tea tree oil, not artificial.

If you can't deal with nose strips, try a painless way by using this BHA stick.  Plus, you'd only need a minute or two.

It didn't get all of the blackheads out especially the ones rooted in, but it did slough some that were already in the surface.  

The best part is after rinsing because it makes pores tighter and sebum-free.  It's like giving the pores a deep-cleanse.  It's surely a perfect buddy for a greasy gal like me. 😛

Althea also created their own reliable makeup tool - Meringue Puffs.  There's a big and baby version for applying everything makeup base-related.

The momma is perfect to use when applying foundation or BB cream, while the babies are made for concealer or cream contour application.  I use the pointy end to really get into the corners of nose and eyes.

It gets bigger when soaked with water and it helps create an even finish for the makeup base.

Giant Puff (100 php per piece) currently works well with my liquid foundation from Maybelline and my BB cream from Missha.  Even the Baby Puffs (140 php for 3 pcs) are so bouncy and don't absorb too much product.

Better if I feature this two in a makeup video so you could see how they work in action. 😉

Here's my final makeup using the BHA stick, sheet mask and Meringue Puffs.
