I guess most beauty junkies have heard of the 10 steps to skincare routine from Korea. Hang on a second, did I just say 10 steps? My god that will take ages to complete my skincare routine. What if I told you can have beautiful radiant skin in just 3 steps? Yeah, you heard me right it just takes 3 STEPS for you to attain the radiant look. Thanks to Althea for introducing their very own skincare line known as Althea Bare Essentials
Althea believes the simplicity is the best way to achieving a beautiful skin. With that thought in mind, they designed Bare Essentials Range with nourishing ingredients that’s suitable for all skin types. It’s easy to execute as this 3- product regime breaks down and simplifies the K-Beauty routine to fit the urban woman (which technically means all of us 😛 )
Contour Cleanser – RM23 (150g)
I love the refreshing verbena scent from this rich foam cleanser. Just a small amount of the creamy cleanser is more than sufficient as it easily lathers up into foam. The contour cleanser helps to removes impurities while improving blood circulation for that V-shaped look. It leaves the skin clean without dehydrating it as the product contains Lemon myrtle that’s rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants to strengthen the skin. Apart from that, there’s also a cooling sensation while I’m cleansing my face and this is caused by ice plant which hydrates and calms redness. Did I also mention, that it contains micro capsules to gently exfoliate dead skin cell? Just loving how my skin feel super refresh after using it, plus the lemon scent is kinda catchy too. I’m totally sold on this product as its truly affordable!
How to use:
Dampen the skin, squeeze a small amount, lather it and gently massage onto the face in circular motions. Rinse off with warm water.
Primer Water – RM43 (200ml)
This toner has a sweet and pleasant scent. I like how it hydrates the skin with its patented ‘dewdrop’ formulation that helps to revitalized the skin and immediately boost up skin’s moisture. The texture is similar to watery gel and upon application it easily absorbs into our skin. I can feel the skin is softer and supple than before. Apart from that, I noticed my skin seems brighter and smoother too thanks to the Snow Lotus formulation. Last but not least, this toner has primer abilities to help smoothen out unevenness and prep our skin for the next step! 😀
How to use:
Pour out a small amount and gently pat onto the cleanse face and neck for better absorption.
Fixer Cream – RM50 (50g)
This fixer cream has a light refreshing green tea scent for it contains Wild Green Tea. It’s a super antioxidant ingredient which assist to boost hydration and offer skin soothing abilities. You might think that the creamy texture is going to be greasy. Fret not, it doesn’t! The cream easily absorbs into the skin is non-greasy at all as it uses Boabab Tree Extract. This ingredient is a non-moisturizing agent which also helps to promote collagen production too! Skin feels plumper after usage as the product contains Trehalose a powerful humectant that retains moisture on the skin. With all this powerful key ingredients, my skin moisture has definitely improved!
How To Use:
Apply evenly onto the face and gently pat in till fully absorbed.
Overall, I’m truly satisfied with Althea’s Bare Essentials range as my skin is a tad sensitive especially around the nose and cheek area. The product offers a soothing, cool and refreshing feeling after each usage. In long run, I think this going to be one of the best unbeatable beauty buys this season. It’s super affordable and easy to use. Just takes 3 STEPS and your skin will beautiful!
