Let There Be Fun with Althea A'Bloom!

May 20, 2019

I love brands that make conscious efforts in making beauty routines fun and enjoyable for people to do. Skin care routines can take a lot of time that it kinda becomes a chore rather than something we look forward to. Having said that, beauty products or tools that come in really colorful and funky aesthetics give me an extra does of energy in trying a little harder when it comes to skin care or make up ~lol~ 

The Althea A'Bloom collection offers quick and fun K-beauty products that are sure to excite us to play with beauty more!  Let's do a little break down, shall we? 

BHA Blackhead Blaster
Selling Price: 200 php (8g)

"Blackhead out without the ouch!"

Directions of Use:  
  1. After washing off your make up, put a damp lukewarm towel on the face to make sure that pores open up. 
  2. Apply the stick to problem/targeted areas and massage for 30 seconds in circular motion. 
  3. Rinse off with water. 
My Thoughts:
  • It has a tea tree smell to it which I love!
  • I use this stick to my problem areas which are my chin and T-zone. It it interesting how the formula melts as I apply on my skin. It gently exfoliates and deep cleanses my pores leaving it very smooth and clean. 
  • It is amazing how it removes dead skins cells while preventing any redness and irritation on the skin!
  • The apricot seeds on the product help remove the excess sebum as well making sure that future blackheads and whiteheads vanish. 
A'Bloom Refreshing Skin Mask Packs
Selling Price: 20 php per piece

These fruit mask packs have strong antioxidants and the soothing energy of plants which targets each skin concern such as blemishes, nutrition, whitening and hydration. 

Ac -Me-Peach: Anti Blemish Peach Mask Sheet

Peaches are rich in moisture and Vitamin A  (a component of retinol) that helps control the oil and water of the skin. 
Water-Me-Long: Moisturizing Watermelon Mask Sheet

Watermelons are made up of 92% water which makes it perfect for moisturizing and soothing especially for people with dry skin. 
Avo-Cuddle-Me: Nourishing Avocado Mask Sheet

Avocado is known to be rich in protein that prevents aging and has skin-friendly unsaturated fatty acids that provides elasticity to the skin.  
Sparkle-Me-Bright: Brightening Lemon Lime Mask

Its no secret that lemon and lime are high in Vitamin C that helps repair and protect the skin from UV damage.  
Directions of Use:
  1. Cleanse skin and apply toner. 
  2. Remove the mask from the pouch and apply to face, placing mask to fit the lip and eye area. 
  3. Remove mask after 15 to 20 minutes and lightly massage face in a circular motion with the remaining essence into face and neck. 
My Thoughts:
  • The mask is bigger than a usual size of a sheet mask making sure that your whole face will be covered generously with its juices. 
  •  The consistency is thick making it very heavy on the face. Living in a tropical country where it's usually always so humid, it's kind of difficult for me to use it as much as I wanted it to. 
  • The product has so much essence in the pouch and the mask itself which is a very good deal for a 20 peso sheet mask! 
  • Best part? The sheets are eco-friendly and are made from 100% eucalyptus tree so disposal wouldn't be a problem for they won't be hurting our environment. 
Meringue Puffs
Giant Meringue Puff
Selling Price: 100 php
Baby Meringue Puff
Selling Price: 140 php (3 pieces)

My Thoughts:
  • It excites me that there are two sizes for these puffs. The big puff for overall face coverage and the small puffs for those hard to reach areas. I don't have to just settle for one!
  • One helpful technique is to damp the puff before putting on the product for it will expand to almost twice it's original size. Aside from that, it will take on a slightly softer texture which makes it seamless for application. 
  • It is latex free which is perfect for no-streak-coverage. 
  • They're definitely soft but firm at the same time making it so easy to use and bouncing it off the skin won't be a problem at all.
Even when the sheet masks are currently out of stock due to the high demand, there is still an on going promotion that you get a Free A'Bloom phone grip with every purchase of BHA Blackhead Blaster and Meringue Puffs per customer! (Althea T&C applies) *screams in excitement*
