Quick Review: Althea Korea Petal Velvet Sunaway & Petal Velvet Powder
I'm sure you have heard about Althea Korea's very own line—Petal Velvet. They first introduced their Petal Velvet Powders which were a total hit to the makeup enthusiasts all over the world. And now, they have added another product to this line and it's called the Petal Velvet Sunaway. Judging from it's name, I'm sure you know that this is a sunscreen. We all need to shield our skin from the harmful rays of the sun but we don't want to look like we smothered our face with sunscreen which is why this Althea Korea Petal Velvet Sunaway is perfect for you. And because I'm not an expert in writing reviews, here's another "quick review" of what Althea Korea has to offer.





Petal Velvet Sunaway

The Althea Korea Petal Velvet Sunaway is an ultra lightweight sunscreen with SPF 50+ PA+++. Its key ingredients are Damask Rose to deeply hydrate and soothe irritations, Hyaluronic Acid to attract moisture to the skin and prevent dehydration, and Geranium Oil to give the skin a radiant boost and heal acne.

To use the sunscreen, you have to shake it well first to achieve a slightly creamy yet watery texture. If not, all you'll get from the bottle is water-ish which I experienced when I did not shake the bottle. The sunscreen looks really white but upon application it becomes invisible as long as you blend it well. It's also easier to blend if your face is well moisturized before applying the sunscreen. It dries quickly and gives off a semi-matte, velvety finish.

Petal Velvet Powders

Along with the package that was sent to me were all the variants of the Petal Velvet Powder: #0 Translucent, #23 Warm Beige, and the special edition variant, Pink Lavender. The key ingredients in these powders are Althea Seed Extract which is rich in antioxidants to protect the skin and ensure that it stays hydrated, Polyphenols to protect the skin from the UV rays, and Saponarin to repair damaged cells and restore elasticity to aging skin.

The shade #0 is a translucent powder so it's best for all skin colors. #23 is for natural coverage and the Pink Lavender variant is perfect when you want to have that bright and radiant glow.

OVERALL REVIEW:

In a span of two weeks, here are the different combinations I have tried:
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + BB Cushion + Petal Velvet Powder in #0
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + BB Cushion + Petal Velvet Powder in #23
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + BB Cushion + Petal Velvet Powder in Pink Lavender
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + Foundation + Petal Velvet Powder in #0
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + Foundation + Petal Velvet Powder in #23
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + Foundation + Petal Velvet Powder in Pink Lavender
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + Petal Velvet Powder in #0
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + Petal Velvet Powder in #23
  • Petal Velvet Sunaway + Petal Velvet Powder in Pink Lavender

With these combinations, I can say that I love how the Petal Velvet Sunaway can go very well with or without the foundation or BB cushion and doesn't leave a white cast behind. And because it's ultra lightweight, it feels as if you haven't applied anything on your face and that's a very important factor for me.

For the Petal Velvet Powder, I love how it amazingly minimizes the appearance of my pores upon application and how it makes my face feel really soft and smooth. And if I have to choose my favorite variant, I have to say that Pink Lavender wins! The first time I used it, my colleagues noticed that my face became radiant and called me "blooming". And because of that, I will have to buy more Pink Lavender powders! Haha. All three powders are perfect as setting powders and the huge difference I noticed while putting these powders to test is I only blot once in a day. Usually, I blot once in the morning and once in the afternoon but with the Petal Velvet Powder, it went down to only once and sometimes I don't blot at all because I like making my face look dewy. Haha!

The Petal Velvet Powder is a really promising and powerful product which makes it a perfect partner for the Petal Velvet Sunaway. And speaking of perfect partner, Althea Korea is currently having a promo for the Petal Velvet Line where you can get a Petal Velvet Set (1 Petal Velvet Sunaway + 1 Petal Velvet Powder of your choice) for only PHP 621. Grab the chance now while you still can! :)

  10. Korean beauty product are so popular in Singapore now and almost everyone is using them. And I heard one of the best product of theirs are the SPF product, you see most Korean women are very fair skin even in the 50s! Glad to learn about petal velvet sunaway and I love it has SPF 50++, that would block away the sun and UV ray and help me stay fair.
