Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway Review

Althea's very own product range is getting bigger and I am so happy for them! They launched a new product for their Petal Velvet line last October — the PETAL VELVET SUNAWAY. And as an Althea Angel, they sent me a PR kit. It included one Petal Velvet Sunaway, three of the Petal Velvet Powders and a cute hologram pouch. Thank you so much, Althea! ♥

If you are not yet familiar with Althea, they are an online shopping destination for all things K-beauty. They have lots of affordable and quality products from different Korean brands and even from their own product line.

So let's proceed with my review!

Product claims:

  • It has SPF 50+ PA++++.
  • It is made with natural ingredients.
  • It is soft as a flower petal.
  • It has a lightweight formula.
  • It is cruelty-free.
  • Dermatologist Tested.

Must haves for:

  • Moisture sebum control
  • For all skin types

The main ingredient of this product is the Damask Rose which helps to moisturize and smoothens skin. You may view the full list of the ingredients here.

The packaging is very simple and straightforward. It comes in a white plastic bottle with a nozzle and just black and pink details on it. Like the other products from Althea and most Korean brands, there is no English translation on the box so it's really a good thing they have everything noted on their website.

The product has a watery consistency and the nozzle really helps in controlling the fluid flow. It feels velvety when applied on the skin. Since this is included in their Petal Velvet line, it also contains micro-powder particles for a smooth and petal-like complexion.

CAUTION: SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING. If not, you will get a transparent liquid like water instead of the photo above. So.. *sings Shake It by SISTAR* Lol!

REVIEW: Even with a watery consistency, the product feels velvety when applied on the skin. It feels lightweight and it is not sticky at all. It feels like you didn't apply any product but you'll feel that your skin is moisturized. What I don't like about this product is the scent. I was surprised when I first opened it. I tried to make it work and used it for quite some time but the scent is somehow overwhelming for me. It somehow fades after few minutes. It's just my preference though! I prefer skincare products without strong scents. I feel like the products with scent triggers my sensitive skin sometimes. It's just my opinion! Haha. It doesn't mean that it won't work for you as well. This is by far, one of the most affordable sunscreens. If it's not for scent, I should've definitely loved this one. :)
