Althea Petal Velvet Powder (Review for Oily Skin)

August 01, 2017

Althea recently sent me the first brand product they launched — Althea Petal Velvet Powder, a translucent powder made of natural ingredients from Korea.

When I was travelling in Japan's winter, my make up lasted the entire day but with Singapore's humidity, sometimes my make up melts within a few hours of stepping out. To top things off, I have an oily and sensitive face — a receipe for melting make up AND there's not much products on the market that I can use without breaking out.

I never realised the importance of translucent powder in tropical countries like Singapore, until I used it for the first time. Because of my oily and sensitive face, I need a translucent powder that's good at sebum control — so I don't look shiny or my make up doesn't run after a few hours — and is made of natural ingredients.

First impression: Althea Petal Velvet Powder feels silky to touch and its sponge is one of the fluffiest and softest sponges I've ever laid my hands on.

Althea Petal Velvet Powder fits my list perfectly, living up to its promises of mattifying my skin and setting my make up. The first thing I did when I received the product was to sniff it. Expectedly, there's no distinct smell because it's made of natural ingredients. Did I mention that Althea Petal Velvet Powder is cruelty free too? Yay!

What I love about translucent powder is that they fit every skin tone and you don't worry about getting them in the wrong shade. It's translucent after all. I found Althea Petal Velvet Powder easy to blend even after applying my BB cream or foundation. On days when I feel like I need more sebum control, I apply Althea Petal Velvet Powder straight after my moisturiser to set my make up base.

Althea Petal Velvet Powder's thin container also makes it convenient to bring around and it now holds a permenent spot in my travel make up bag.

Priced reasonably at only SGD $6, Althea Petal Velvet Powder is a makeup product your wallet will thank you for.

You may purchase Althea Petal Velvet Powder on Althea's website from 1 August 2017 on.
