Review: Althea's Petal Velvet Powder

A new product from Althea recently made its way to the market and it's the Petal Velvet Powder. I am so happy when I received it and immediately used it fresh from the parcel. 

Althea's Petal Velvet Powder is a translucent powder that sets makeup perfectly which leaves a smooth and silky finish. I tried it on the first day after receiving the parcel and it worked really fine for me. I like the smooth finish and the clean look. I also adore the very neat and pretty packaging in light pink but with minimalist approach on the design. 


PACKAGING 
As I have mentioned, the packaging is very simple and neat. It's minimalist with only the A print in front. Even the box is forward with the design. No English translations though.


FRAGRANCE
No strong odor. I can smell a very small hint of my baby's powder but lighter than it.

TEXTURE
It has super fine powder and leaves a smooth touch after applying.  It is very lightweight like you won't feel you put anything on your skin.


PRICE
The market price was way cheaper than other powder. It retails for P210 only. You pay lesser than the effect of this as it really has a lot of advantages on the skin.

EFFECT
I have so many things to say on this one. It is super lightweight that you will like it on top of your skin. It really makes my makeup stay longer somehow. I also like how super fine the product is and how smooth my skin was after application. I also feel that it somehow makes my pores less visible.



Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Got it for FREE as it was sponsored.
  • Minimalist yet pretty packaging.
  • Love the texture of it. 
  • Makes my pores less visible
  • Leaves a smooth and silky finish
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • No English translation but I don't mind. Hihi. I just like it so much! 
Price: FREE
Bought from: Althea Philippines
 Size: 3 g

Aside from all the things I've mentioned, this also controls sebum and it is made of natural ingredients. Oh, how I loved natural and cruelty-free  products. Definitely something I would recommend.

  4. The packaging is pretty I must say! It really does look lightweight which is what I love in the make up world... I don't like putting a lot of make up on and feeling it on my skin like a mask, so this is something I'd consider to use :)

  5. I'm also using a loose powder and I like it. I haven't tried any Althea Korea brands yet. I knew they had a promotion in the past but I was unable to make a purchase still.

  10. That's a nice product. What has grabbed my attention is that it lets your pores seem visible. The packaging also is very functional.

  14. Nice product... I personally do not apply much powder in my face because for some reason.. i always find it very itchy but I guess it really depends on the person's skin.. mine apparently is quite sensitive to cosmetics
    I actually love the simplicity of its packaging...thanks for sharing your honest review

  15. I have seen numerous bloggers post about this. Since it's only 210php, I want to try it out. Have you used this for baking? Does it have any whitecast or something?
