My beauty regime is simplified mostly because of my laziness, but it’s always a warm welcome for me to introduce products which are multi-functional and super efficient like Althea’s latest baby. Meet their Real Fresh line of Skin Detoxer Mask in the Rose and Green Tea variant.
ALTHEA recommends that this mask be used during your night routine which makes perfect sense since, for me, the smell of green tea always calms and helps me relax after an exhausting long day at work or after being out the whole day.
The main ingredients for this is premium Jeju green tea leaves and Jeju green tea powder (6000ppm). The leaves used are the baby ones, which are the young, delicate tea leaves from the first harvest as these leaves have the freshest scent and has the highest content of nutrients suitable for the skin. These leaves contain Catechin which is extremely high in Vitamin C making it perfect to protect the skin from any UV damage.
I really like the novelty of being able to nourish my skin with masks that only takes 10 seconds a day and is wash-off type. It’s extremely convenient and easy to assimilate into your daily beauty regime. While I enjoy doing sheet masks, most often than not, my skin react differently to them as my skin is rather sensitive to the ingredients used in them.
But with the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Mask for both variant of Rose and Green Tea, I found that the mask which doubles up also as a cleanser and mask helps in the double cleansing method that I have adopted to ensure that my skin is clear from all the impurities which may have built up over time. What I love using these masks is the feeling after washing the mask, you will feel that your skin is extremely soft and supple. I’m not even kidding when I say that, this would be something that you need to try yourself to believe it.
The texture of the masks is actually rather thick which I believe makes it easier to spread around the face and massage through thoroughly as well. But my absolute favourite part about these masks is when you wash them off. During that process, what happens is you’ll realise that it lathers up quite nicely where tiny bubbles would form and help to cleanse the skin by melting away residue and dirt from your pores. It’s very gentle on the skin as it’s made from coconut extracts.
Where to buy
Before I end my post, I’d like to share something special with you as well. It’s no surprise that ALTHEA have been one of my favourite online store to get my K-beauty products fix and I’ve been following them since they first launched in Malaysia, and three years after their inception… they are of course, celebrating their 3rd Birthday and have also announced their newly launched Althea Angels, which aims to build a beauty community surrounding the ambassadors of ALTHEA.
I’m proud to say that I’m now part of the Althea Angels and hence, you would be able to get the first dibs and reviews on the latest releases by ALTHEA. My thoughts and comments on these products would as always, be my honest reviews of them. I hope these would come in handy for your journey of finding the best Korean beauty products.
