Review: Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway

There's another new addition to the Althea exclusive family, it's the Petal Velvet Sunaway. It's a sunscreen with SPF50 and claims to help control sebum while maintaining skin moisture. 

It has Damask rose extract which is use to moisturize and soothe the skin. While the Micro Particle Technology creates a Micro Powder Barrier. This barrier is described to absorb sebum and excess oil from the skin to give a light and velvety finish.


PACKAGING- It's in a simple baby pink box which has Hangul for info and instructions. I hope it has English translation though but no worries since you can view more info on the Althea website. 

SCENT - For a pregnant mom like me, I think this has a strong rose scent which isn't really to my liking. But I can manage with it.  

PRICE - You can purchase the Petal Velvet at Althea website for only P480 a piece but if you wish to get the Petal Velvet Set, it's only for P621. It comes with Petal Velvet Powder of your choice which is a perfect combo of the two. You can also avail of the free shipping for a limited time. Just visit Althea website for details.

EFFECT The skin feels smoother and no white casts detected after use. It also helps to control excess oil on the skin and it feels very light even after a long day out in the sun. The Petal Velvet Sunaway can also be used if you would like a no-makeup look as it somehow covers flaws on the skin.

Yay for me! (。◕‿  ◕。) 
  • Has high SPF
  • No white cast
  • Absorbed by the skin easily
  • Great for all skin types. 
  • Doesn't leave the skin dry.
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • I sometimes can't take the strong scent. i'm pregnant so most mothers will know that this is part of motherhood, right? :)

Price: P480/piece - P621/set
Bought from: Althea
Size: 55 ml.

To be honest, this is not love at first sight but I liked it over time. Maybe it's just me and my pregnant mood swings at times. But overall, I would recommend this to anyone who's looking for a good sunscreen.
