Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review

Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Being my favourite beauty e-commerce website, Althea never fails to bring in the latest Korean beauty products to my doorstep (of both my houses in Malaysia and Singapore haha!) at the lowest price. Recently, they have launched their very first in house product: Althea Petal Velvet Powder. Can you believe that they actually produce an Althea infused loose powder? How creative and meaningful is this! I honestly can't think of a better way to make this meaningful milestone of Althea more memorable. 

Althea Petal Velvet Powder is packed in a mini pink box which mimics Althea's signature pink box, this is super sweet and cute! Salute to the meticulous Althea team who takes care of little details like this, thumbs up!

I love the compact design of Althea Petal Velvet Powder, it is small and light that make it a good piece to be carried around on daily basis. The combination of simple baby pink lid and frosted container gives the loose powder an elegant and classy feel and at the same time, looking sweet and girlish. The container is quite sturdy that I can see myself tossing it around my make up pouch without worrying that it will get scratched or broken. 

Let's move on to the review on the main lead today, the Petal Velvet Powder shall we?

As its name suggested, Althea Petal Velvet Powder is a loose powder made with pure and natural ingredients, the petals of Althea flower, to be exact. As soon as I opened the lid of the powder, the room was pervaded with a natural floral scent. It's gentle and calming. I love it for being so light and not overwhelming at all. The scent is truly natural that it does not irritate my sensitive nose. Althea Petal Velvet Powder has definitely left a very impressive first impression to me!

The powder is dispensed through an array of small openings so over-dispensing the powder is completely out of the question. I always go for multiple applications with small amount of powder each time to avoid using too much of product at one time. 

Due to the compact size of Althea Petal Velvet Powder, dispensing the powder onto the puff is as easy as ABC. All you need to do is to put the puff in place nicely, turn it over for 2 times and an adequate amount of powder will be transferred to the puff.

This is what you will get, the powder is evenly distributed on the puff.

Speaking of the puff, I must give a highlight on this specially designed puff, it's extraordinarily soft and thick! Not your run off the mill cheapo puff, this 13mm thick double-puff is dense when compressed and soft on touch, hence providing a premium experience on powder application. 

Aww it looks like a soft marshmallow don't you think so?

The translucent powder looks white when they gather together, and it gives a satin silky finish (clear and transparent) when I spread it out on my skin. There's no white cast being left behind at all which I really love it. 

When I applied Althea Petal Velvet Powder on my skin, it feels so velvety smooth. I patted the puff on my T-zone and the powder is set to my make up seamlessly, it doesn't even stuck at the nose corners, brilliant! Say bye to cakey powder that makes you to look 10 years older. 

Probably due to the natural ingredients that are used to formulate the powder, the power incredibly mattifies my T-zone without dehydrating the skin, thus eliminating the risk of accentuating fine lines on your face. What stands Althea Petal Velvet Powder out of the crowd is its exceptional blurring effect that helps minimize the appearance of pores as a result of its micro-fine particles formulation. I was a bit skeptical when I heard that Althea Petal Velvet Powder is able to blur these imperfections out because to me, loose powder is meant to set your make up and control sebum excretion, that's it. Never try, never know. I was surprised by the blurring effect that Althea Petal Velvet Powder is able to give after I tried the product out, it really worked! I wish I could show you some clear photos here to show you the difference but unfortunately, the effects are subtle and natural that the photos wouldn't do justice to the product. Trust me, naked eyes will show the effects better and you should really get a Althea Petal Velvet Powder for yourself and you will definitely be amazed.

Believe it or not, this highly raved powder is retailed at a unbelievably cheap price of SGD 6 only, definitely worth every penny you pay! I'm not sure whether they will revise the price in future since the powder is really good. My advice is, go get Althea Petal Velvet Powder from Althea now when it's still sold at SGD 6!
