It’s the start of the week today but I’m writing this the day before. I have to go early to the dermatologist for a follow-up checkup and to restock my isotretinoin. Apart from this Althea Petal Velvet Powder review, I also have an announcement to make.
I’ve been blogging since February of this year and I want to share with you another milestone that we (you and I), Filipinows, have reached…
I’m officially an Althea Angel! Yes, you’ve read that right. Expect more K-Beauty reviews coming your way.
Althea Angel Welcome Package
I received a box with various products from Althea Korea’s generosity. Some have been given away to my friends to try. I can’t review multiple products.
Don’t worry, I’m an annoying interviewer and I ask every detail of how the products performed on them.
Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review by Amanda of Filipinow
Three petal velvet powder variants were sent to me. Translucent, Pink Lavender, and Warm Beige.
All have very beautiful and feminine packaging that utilized pastel colors. They’re all so pretty and will definitely be great additions to your makeup bag and vanity.
My only problem is that the details written on the box of each powder are in Korean.
I gave the Warm Beige to my sister-in-law because she has a nice tan that matches the Warm Beige’s shade. She’s also not under isotretinoin medication which makes her sebum production normal.
Her skin will be able to determine the powder’s oil control better than mine.
Much like the Pink Lavender and Translucent counterparts, the powder doesn’t leave coverage on the face.
It’s not a powder foundation even if the three variants have different shades.
She said that it helped reduce oiliness. Especially as she used the Petal Velvet Warm Beige powder when she attended a wedding as a bridesmaid.
We all know that churches in the Philippines (real ones, at least for me lol), aren’t air-conditioned.
The oil on her face didn’t make a cameo for 4 long hours even if her pores were being clogged by liquid foundation.
She added that she didn’t experience any irritation even if the scent is too heavy.
For myself, I tried the Translucent and Pink Lavender variants. The Translucent shade is white and is just like baby powder and the Pink Lavender has a very pretty blush tint.
Pink Lavender got my hopes up because of its baby pink hue. I was expecting that it’d be a very natural-looking blush but it’s actually a loose powder that loses its color once blended.
Scent of the powder is heavy of daisy or jasmine and appealing. I like how they maintained the scent to be powdery to match the product.
Since my skin is literally not producing any oil because of isotretinoin, I’m going to be able to give you my 2 cents and you should keep reading if you have dry skin.
It WILL cling to the dry patches even after blending. However, it’s lightweight and very comfortable to wear.
I’m going to give the product a score based on what it’s supposed to be used for; oil control.
Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review Final Words
Looking for a very powerful mattifying loose powder? You should definitely give it a try.
Retails at 210 PHP for 3g of product, a little pricier than others but I’d honestly buy it for the packaging alone.
