Beauty: Unleash the Milky Goodness with Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask

I have always been looking for a good exfoliating mask which is gentle and not too harsh on my skin. My skin is a tad bit sensitive, so I always need something really mild for it. However, up till now, I haven’t really found any products which works best for my skin. Recently, Althea launched the all new Milk Peel Cream Mask and it’s definitely something different than the previous masks I’ve tried. This mask gently exfoliates the skin, leaving it smooth and supple without any residue.

  1. It contains AHA and BHA to help peel off dead skin cells for smoother, clearer skin
  2. It has Casein protein from the milk which moisturises the skin deeply
  3. This product has a soft clay texture that bubbles up after you massaged it to cleanse deep inside the pores
  4. It is absolutely cruelty-free

How To Use
There are no complicated steps to using this product. Just pump some of the product and apply it on damp skin. Massage it gently in circular motions until it turns bubbly.

The bubbles may be quite ticklish on the skin, but remember not to wipe them away. Allow it to rest on your skin about 30 to 60 seconds and wash it off completely. Such easy, simple and straightforward steps to cleanse your skin!

Honestly, I really love this mask very much and I’ve been using it almost everyday. There is some small difference between this mask compared to previous peel masks I’ve used. Other exfoliating masks usually involves applying a layer on your skin and allowing it to dry for some time, continued by peeling it off and you will actually be able to see the dirt peeled off your skin.

For the Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask, the concept is slightly different. It is more like a wash-off mask and I really love the light scent of baby powder whenever I apply it on my face. It feels quite soft and easy to spread on the face, with a slight buttery texture.

After washing off, I find that my skin feels immediately smoother and the redness is reduced. Even my complexion seems a little brighter as well, after the first trial. My skin didn’t feel dry or tight at all, so I think it does keep my skin moisturised while cleansing the pores. I would suggest this product to those who have sensitive skin and is looking for a good exfoliating mask.

Happy New Year!

Beauty: Introducing Althea's Brand New Sunscreen 'Petal Velvet Sunaway'!

After a long hiatus, I am finally back at blogging! I spent the last few months settling into a brand new place I have never even been before. But, there is something amazing which I have to absolutely introduce to you girls.

It's summer in Malaysia all year round, but it's starting to get colder here in Hong Kong as we brace for winter. Despite the differences in weather, my skincare routine doesn't change much. But, the most important thing I absolutely have to do before leaving house everyday, is to apply plenty of sunscreen first.

Althea just recently launched their brand new sunscreen, called 'Petal Velvet Sunaway' which has a smooth, lightweight finish upon application. Sun protection is important and this powerful sunscreen  up to SPF 50+ PA++++ protects the skin from both UVA and UVB rays. My skin is slightly sensitive, but I find that this sunscreen is perfect as it does not cause me to have breakouts.

The main ingredients in this product is the Damask Rose which is a good moisturiser that smoothen the skin at the same time. I find that it has only a light rosy fragrance and the scent was definitely not too overpowering.

Most of the time, I take public transport here and I like that this product has micro particles which controls sebum and oil production on my skin. Another plus point is that it doesn't make my face look oily by the end of the day.

I like how convenient and hygienic the packaging of the product is. You just need to shake the bottle and pour out the desired pea size amount. So simple and fast, without any wastage.

The product is easy to blend into the skin with a fluid texture. It isn't sticky and doesn't leave a white cast after that as well due to its advanced non-chemical UV filter.

For those who prefer a matte and less oily face, you can pat some of the Althea Petal Velvet Powder all over your face. 

That will definitely even up your complexion and ensure that your makeup stays in place for the whole day.

There are 3 shades to choose from; Translucent, Warm Beige, Lavender limited edition. Absolutely love the different colours of the powder, definitely very aesthetically appealing.

It comes with a puff, so you can easily pop this product in your bag for a touch up at any time of the day. So convenient, especially when I'm usually busy and out the whole day.

Head over to Althea website now to get your hands on the Petal Velvet Sunaway and Petal Velvet Powder :) Psst! I heard there's an ongoing discount, so hurry up girls!

Beauty: Mentholatum Tsum Tsum Collection Is Finally Here!

Who's a fan of little cute Tsum Tsum by Disney? SQUEALS!!!

Recently, Mentholatum just launched their brand new Tsum Tsum Collection incorporating the adorable Tsum Tsum characters into their skincare products. I was so excited when I received the whole Mentholatum Tsum Tsum collection, because they look so lovely and the packaging is so 'kawaii'!

Check out some of the items from the collection below:

Mentholatum Tsum Tsum Face Wash 100g (RM 14.90)

There are two different variants for the face wash; Hydra & Whitening Face Wash and Pore Refining Face Wash.

I noticed that the Hydra & Whitening Face Wash brightens and evens out my skin tone after a few washes. I absolutely love the natural rose scent as this product contains Arbutin and Rose Extract.

The Pore Refining Face Wash minimizes pores and helps to balance the oil production on the face. With the hot & humid Malaysian weather, my face tends to get oily quickly and this face wash does help to cleanse my pores, as well as soothe my skin with its Aloe Vera Extract.

Mentholatum Tsum Tsum Face Mask Single Sheet (RM 7.90)

This product is available in four variants; Rose, Lavender, Honey and Tea Tree.

My favourite was the Lavender Mask which is suitable for sensitive and tired skin. These days, I find that my skin is quite dry. After using the mask, it really nourishes and replenishes my skin's moisture with its 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid. It calms my irritated skin and the redness over my T-zone was reduced after the mask.

Mentholatum Tsum Tsum Hand Cream 50g (RM 16.90)

The hand cream is available in three variants; Rose, Lavender & Jasmine. 

With the ultra-moisturising Almond Oil & Sunflower Seed Oil, this hand cream protects and nourishes your skin with every application. So soft and smooth after applying!

The texture of the hand cream is light and has a refreshing scent to it. This hand cream also helps to strengthen nails and prevent them from becoming brittle.


Mentholatum Tsum Tsum Fruity Lipbalm (RM 11.50)

Comes in fruity flavours such as Apple, Lime and Peach.

My favourite is definitely Apple flavour!

With Vitamin E, Argan Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil and other moisturising ingredients, this lipbalm smells good while deeply hydrating your lips. I like the smooth, lightweight texture and the best part, is that it is not sticky after application. 

What are you waiting for? Get your hands on this cute, adorable Mentholatum Tsum Tsum Collection today from Watsons, AEON Wellness, Caring and Sasa nationwide before they run out!
