Introducing Althea Korea’s very first translucent powder from their very own product line, the Althea Petal Velvet Powder! I really love Korean translucent powders as they feel lighter and more natural looking when applied. *u* I’m very happy for Althea for reaching this milestone as a one stop K-beauty online store!~
This powder is made of pure natural ingredients. It is infused with oil from Althea seeds that help in controlling sebum without drying out your skin. *u* I have dry skin and at first it may look a bit too matte once applied but after you let it sit for a bit, it becomes more of a velvet satin finish on the face. I prefer a more dewy finish so what I would do is spray some setting spray on my face and it just melts into the skin making it look more hydrated. *.*
I’ve also tried using it as a setting powder for my under eye area and it worked nicely with my concealer. It didn’t make it crease or separate and kept it in place for several hours. This powder is finely milled and it applied very light on the face so you won’t have to worry about looking cake-y with it. It also helped mattify the areas where I get a bit oily after hours. I recommend it for people with oily skin!
My most favorite thing about it is the scent. It has a unique mild floral scent. 😮 The packaging is nice, too! I love the frosted component with the pink lid – very Althea! They’re always A++ when it comes to packaging. 🙂
For the price of P210, I think it’s a really good product! Why don’t you try it yourself? ^^ You can get this powder at the Althea Korea website: http://ph.althea.kr/petal-velvet-powder
