By Unknown - 8:39:00 PM


I have been hearing about Althea for the longest time and I finally had the chance to unbox one Althea Box. Althea is a south East Asia's largest online Korean beauty store with the lowest prices shipped directly from Korea, yup. I am a crazy online shopper and I so happen to love beauty products, which is why I am so excited over this box. This is my first Althea Box all the way from Korea and I am so excited about it! What are Althea Beauty Box? These are limited edition collection added by Althea every month and they’re selling it at a discounted price.  The box that I have with me right now is the #24 AltheaSOS (Soothe Our Skin) which is selling for RM 112 instead of its original price of RM 333. This box is still available as of now, so after reading my review and you love what you read, visit http://my.althea.kr/ to order yours. You can watch the crazy me doing a 'unboxing' video here, its my first unboxing video, I have done videos but this is my first 'unboxing' and its raw unedited. Just added some music.

DAY ROUTINE
Tony Moly The Chok Chok Green Tea Cleansing Water
Removing makeup and skin impurities is an everyday routine for all and what’s better than cleansing water that hydrates the skin. Tony Moly Chok Chok Green Tea come in a clear bottle of 300ml and contains 100% green tea ferment extract, lemon seed oil and rosewood oil. With such ingredients is definitely does it its job of cleansing my skin without stripping of its natural oil. I was never a fan of oil based makeup remover, as it feels oily after using it, so I kinda like this water based Tony Moly Chok Chok cleansing water. Just dispense a decent amount onto cotton pad and gently wipe over face and skin and taa daa, face is free from makeup and impurities. After removing your makeup, do cleanse with a cleanser to maintain healthy glowing skin.

Real Skin Healthy Vinegar Skin Toner – Makgeoli


Real Skin is a Korean brand that has been quite a hit. The range is of toners are light weight with a gentle formula, this range of toner is packed with more than 60 organic acids, minerals and vitamins from fermented natural ingredients. With a acidity of pH5.5 this toner helps to tighten pores and exfoliates skin leaving you with clear healthy skin.  Great for S.O.S. This comes in a 300ml simple yet classy packaging which am very fond off. I can’t wait to have the whole series  (There are 12 types of Healthy Vinegar Skin Toner all together ) lined up in my dresser.  I will be reviewing the Makgeoli, which is made of fermented rice and contains Kojic Acid which helps in brightening and clarifying the skin. It doesn’t smell like vinegar like the bottle says, instead it smells citrusy. Check out Althea.Kr for the full range.

Sweet Pudding Tone Up Cream by ETUDE HOUSE
Sweet Pudding Tone Up Cream, does it smell like pudding was my first question. LOL. Sweet Pudding Creams is from Etude House. Etude House has really pretty packaging. I am using all of Etude Play 101 series and is still very much in love with them.  This tone up cream comes in a lovely white jar of 50ml and labelled with simple words. It also comes with a scoop which is a plus, hygiene is very important when it comes to skincare.  I love the packaging, very minimalist. The Sweet Pudding Tone Up Cream has a velvety texture and it works to eliminate excess oils from our skin. It also has brightening properties, where I felt that it instantly brightens up my skin creating a flawless finish.  Great for no makeup day! With skin soothing properties like chia seeds extract, Asiatic pennywort extract and eoseongcho extract and purifying properties neem leaf, neem flower and lime extract this Sweet Pudding Tone Up Cream leaves my skin feeling moisturized.

Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Sheet Mask
This Hanyul Mask has a normal packaging  that will not catch my eye, and I have not even heard of this brand before *ok maybe I outdated a bit la The mask sheet is made of cotton fiber and wraps nicely on my face. This mask contains Ganghwa Baby Mugwort water, I don’t really know what that is but it is said that it soothes skin. My skin feels smooth and supple after the use of the Hanyul Mask. I am not a fan of paper mask as I prefer gel based mask, but overall this was ok. I have read some other reviews on the Hanyul Artemisia Line, and they’ve got quite good reviews from people all over. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mamonde AC Balance Spot Patch
A spot patch is a transparent film type spot patch that calms areas of concern on the skin, like acne or pimple. The patches contains ingredients like salicylic acid and willow herb which aids in calming the concern areas of the skin. The Mamonde Spot patch is natural transparent so it is less visible. I actually have a patch stuck under my chin as I am typing this, it covers up the redness and I have pimple that is going to make an appearance soon that is why I put the patch on.  Mamonde AC Spot Patch comes in 12 pcs of patches. This is going to be my must have in my travels, having a zit during travels is just depressing.

                                    NIGHT ROUTINE

Innisfree Real Peppermint Mask

Green Goodness

 too scary? 

This is a clay mask that is supposed to calm your skin. Peppermint itself  soothing and healing properties. The Innisfree Real Peppermint Mask hydrates the skin for a soothing finish and also helps to control excess sebum production.The Innisfree Real Peppermint mask comes in a jar of 100 ml and comes with a spatula. The texture of the mask is very smooth to me, and it's pretty easy to apply on skin. It doesn’t pull the skin like most clay mask do.  I can see tiny traces of mint leaves which I like. No doubt, it smells like a jar of mint leaves, that is sure to calm your senses. Mint Leaves are green in colour and so is this mask. Lol. After application I felt that I look like Jim Carrey from The Mask. You wanna see it then you have to scroll till the end. Hubs actually ask me, 'Wah, You scared till face turn green ah?" LOL. After applying to your face leave it on for 10-15 minutes (it will dry up) and rinse. Follow with a cooling gel (below). The Innisfree Real Peppermint Mask is very moisturizing and doesn’t dry out my skin. I would highly recommend this especially for times of SOS.

SKINFOOD Fresh Apple Cooling Gel

Like they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. This is a moist cooling gel that actually contains 90% fresh apple extract so its perfect for hydrating skin. It feels refreshingly cool on my skin after application and it is very light in weight so its easy to apply . I find that the SKinfood Fresh Apple Cooling Gel reduces my skin redness. You can also use this on your body, as a body lotion. Mix it with oil to use it on hair and or massage oil. One bottle; so many uses.  This is definitely going into my must-have list.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
Hanyul Pure Artemisia Watery Calming Sheet Mask

This Hanyul Mask has a normal packaging  that will not catch my eye, and I have not even heard of this brand before *ok maybe I outdated a bit la The mask sheet is made of cotton fiber and wraps nicely on my face. This mask contains Ganghwa Baby Mugwort water, I don’t really know what that is but it is said that it soothes skin. My skin feels smooth and supple after the use of the Hanyal Mask. I am not a fan of paper mask as I prefer gel based mask, but overall this was ok. I have read some other reviews on the Hanyul Artemisia Line, and they’ve got quite good reviews from people all over. I might give it a go one day.

Pure Smile Choosy Lip Pack – White Pearl & Purple Pearl

This is my first time using a Lip Mask, thinking of I never did really looked after my lips. Oops. Pure Smile Lip Pack comes in variety of different lines and flavours and the one that I have to review is from the Pearl Line which is the White Pearl and Purple Pearl. This Lip Pack contains Vitamin Collagen & Hyaluronic Acid to combat dry/chapped lips. I do no really have dry lips problem, but this lip pack has defiantly soften them even more. LOL. It’s pretty simple to use, after cleaning and drying the lips (after a lip scrub) I place the mask and leave them for around 20mins and my lips comes out so moist and pumped, just after 1 use. The mask feels like gelatine, and when I place it over my lips I actually find it funny, but anyhow I do not have the habit of looking after my lips.  For those who have dry lips, you can try this lip mask.
