(Review) My Hot Weather MUST-HAVE featuring Althea Korea Latest Skin Calming Series

SOOOOOO HOT!!!

How's your weather at your place?


Its so hot and humid now in Malaysia and I am really glad that Althea Korea launched this at the right time! What's your must have other than sunscreen? ^^


Aren't the packaging lovely? :)

As an Althea Angel its always exciting to get the first dibs of new releases before everyone else.
I was pretty excited for the Waterful Green Bamboo Pads as I love anything that's pre-soaked in toner and with dual uses! ^^ As for the Relief Cream I was just feeling neutral about it coz I did not have much of an expectation. Both turns out to be in my current skincare routine and am loving it! <3



Full thoughts below are based on a 2 weeks plus usage (currently ongoing)!

Althea Waterful Green Bamboo Pads

Brand: Althea Korea
Item: Waterful Green Bamboo Pads
Content: 100ml (80 pads)
Skin Type: All (Great for dry, sensitive skin)
Re-purchase: YES
Rating: 5/5

Ingredients:
Water, Methylpropanediol, Isopentyldiol, Panthenol, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Water, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Sodium Hyaluronate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Lavandula Augustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Oil, Polyglyceryl-10 Myristate, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, Sodium Citrate, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Ceramide Np, 1,2-hexanediol, Hydroxyaxetophenone. 

Key Ingredients:
Bambusa Vulgaris Extract - Rich in minerals and amino acids that deeply penetrate into the layers of skin to hydrate while protecting the skin's barrier with moisture.
Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract - Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Gentle, non-irritating treatment for mild, troubled skin.
Centella Asiatica Extract - Treats and repairs damaged skin. Best friend to soothe and hydrate skin.
*Made with EWG green grade ingredients to ensure your skin stays radiant and healthy.*

Claims:
Instantly soothes and deeply moisturizes the skin to give a healthy skin glow. The Moist-veil System technology keeps skin hydrated all day long

How-to:
As a Toner Pad - After cleansing, wipe from center of your face and out before tapping the remaining essence into skin for full absorption.
As a Mask Pad - To boost hydration, place pads on targeted area and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. Remove, then tap gently to aid in full absorption into the skin.

Packaging:
A minimalistic, clean green packaging and comes with a clip for hygienic purpose <3

Texture & Scent: 
Soft natural cotton pads made using a mix of eucalyptus and tencel to create a natural cotton gauze that allows the watery and light toner to absorb well into the skin. The toner has this refreshing citrusy orange scent that dissipates after a while.

Look at the thin, gauze texture. It holds a lot toner too!

Thoughts:
I love that it provides instant deep hydration with a refreshing scent. It is also very lightweight and does not leave a sticky or tacky situation after! I love to apply it at any time of the day especially when I feel HOT or to prep my skin prior to makeup application ^^ I was pleasantly surprised with the ultra soft gauze-like pads that holds a lot of the toners and does not dry after my 10-15 minutes masking session. The only con is if you are looking for mild exfoliating pads like the cosrx hydrating pads then this is not for you. I do prefer this one more as the toner absorbs quickly and does what it claims to do! ^^

Look at the glowy, glass-like skin after a 15 minutes application! ^^

Dispensed in a white cream texture and spreads like gel. It has the similar refreshing citrusy orange scent that dissipates after a while.

Thoughts:
A little goes a long way. I still remember I said it was tacky. Well, that's coz I have applied tooo much. When using just the right amount, it gets absorbed fast and does not leave a sticky after situation. Definitely for users who loves the hydration while also not feeling heavy. It also does soothe the redness where I squeezed my acnes/whiteheads. I would be using this everyday for its anti-pollution property where it restores fatigued, irritated skin for a healthy calm complexion.
It does give a glowy look right after application but dries down to a skin-like finish. I love that I still feel hydrated after and the soothing properties. ^^
