Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review

I know this product has been in the rave, especially if you are a fan of Althea, the user-friendly and great online store that sells Korean beauty items. This is an exciting post because this is Althea's first ever product and all Althea's fans are super excited about it! Althea Petal Velvet Powder is a translucent loose powder that can be used to set makeup, control sebum production and pores blurring. The main ingredient in this powder is flowers extract, hence there's a faint floral scent. This is also a cruelty-free product, thumbs up Althea!

The packaging is simple, small and adorable! The combination of pastel pink and white resembles cuteness and feminine at the same time. The powder comes with a fluffy puff which is great for dabbing under the eye or for baking. The holes on the sifter is rather big actually, therefore it will get a bit messy during usage. As for the powder, the texture is soft and smooth with micro-fine particles that makes application a breeze and glides on easily on the skin. It does mattify the skin without looking cakey, more of a natural finish and it gives the skin a radiant glow.

Silky finish on the skin

As you can see from the photo above, my pores are blurred out by the powder. It leaves a silky smooth finish and my skin looks radiant and natural without being too matte. It doesn't feel as lightweight as I want it to be, because I can feel that I have powder all over my face.  I also used in for under the eye but I don't think it's the best option for me. As I have wrinkles under my eyes, the powder seems to emphasized my line after several hours. You can also see my pores are peeking out after 4 hours of application. I was out and about in the car travelling to several meeting spots that day and my face did get oily. As for sebum control, I would rate it about 60% okay. But for a RM16 translucent powder, I think it fares quite alright. 

If you want to try out the powder yourself, do give it a go and visit Althea to purchase. Thanks Althea for sending it over for me to try and congrats on your first ever product, woohooo! :D
