Product Review: Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Monday, August 21, 2017

     It's been ages since the last time I used a translucent powder to set my bb cream. I'm a fan of powder foundation because of extra coverage and finish. Last July, Althea Korea secretly selected bloggers to get the first dibs on their Althea Petal Velvet Powder. This finishing powder was launched early this month and upon reaching our doorstep, I've decided to use it immediately.

     So what is Althea Petal Velvet Powder? According to their website, it is Althea's very own product range and the Petal Velvet Powder is the first from the line. This is a translucent powder that sets makeup and leaves behind a silky finish to the touch. Infused with oil from Althea seeds, this powder works to keep sebum production at bay without drying out the skin for a radiant, fresh look, all while giving out a gentle scent. After using it for a week, read my thoughts after the jump :)

Product Review: Althea Petal Velvet Powder
Used Althea Petal Velvet Powder to set my bb cream. See how it blur the pores on my cheeks and nose area

What I like:
  • The product comes in a sturdy plastic tub. A see through flat and round jar where I can easily see how much product left from the inside. 
  • A handy tub perfect for travels.
  • Well-sealed upon purchase.
  • Made from natural ingredients. Those who are staying away from parabens, this one is for you!
  • Like all loose powders, there's a perforated plastic cap over the holes that dispenses the right amount of product that I need in one tap.
  • A little amount goes a long way.
  • It has a gentle scent and can pass as odorless in my standards. Take note that I have a sensitive nose.
  • The texture is velvety smooth. The powder is finely milled.
  • It can blur pores as shown in the photo above.
  • The staying power is really amazing! Keeps oil at bay for more than 8 hours.
  • Didn't alter the color of my bb cream.
  • Flash photography friendly. No white cast on pictures.
  • No breakouts, irritation or whatsoever.
  • There are batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the bottom of the plastic jar.

What I don't like:
  • It's available online.
  • Contains only 3g per tub. 

Will I repurchase? Yes, because my mom loves this powder so much and gave mine to her. I need a backup for myself though.

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. I highly recommend this product if you want a natural finish. Since this is a loose powder, expect it to become messy during and after application. Dispense the right amount of product that you will use on the screw cap. Dip your brush and tap excess before buffing over your face. Please tightly close the screw cap if you're keeping the tub in your makeup kit to avoid spillage.

     You can still use the puff that comes with it by gently sweeping onto the skin. You can use this to set your makeup. I'll be purchasing another tub for myself because this is a very good everyday powder.

What's your favorite face powder?

Good Times!~
