Review: Althea Bare Essentials Products

 Hello! I'm back with a beauty review! This time its Althea's new product line - Bare Essentials.

Great makeup starts from great skin - minimize your base make-up with Althea Bare Essentials! With nourishing ingredients and easy execution, this 3-product regime breaks down and simplifies the K-beauty routine for the urban woman.

 3 step regime before makeup? Sounds legit ๐Ÿ˜

So you may have seen this in my insta story, and I promised that I'll do a review on these products. The reason why I waited this long is because I wanted to try out each product and provide my honest review. I brought the samples Althea Korea so generously included (cos the actual products were too heavy to be brought along lol), to guess where...Seoul! Hahaha I wanted to try em out in the dry and cold and windy weather in Korea, plus in the hot Msia weather too to see the comparison. So here goes!

Look how minimalist their packaging is! So aesthetically pleasing, right? 

First up, the contour cleanser.

 Step 1
Contour Cleanser, a rich and foaming cleanser that removes impurities while improving blood circulation for that V-shaped look. It contains micro capsules to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and leaves the skin feeling cool and refreshed too!

I love this foamy cleanser! It leaves your face squeaky clean, but still moisturized. Works well both in Korea and Malaysia! Plus, your face feels refreshed and cooling after using it, like using toothpaste on your face ๐Ÿ˜† 

Step 2 
Primer Water. Smooth, hydrating and ever so slightly balm-like, this bottle of wonder penetrates into the layers of the skin to plump them up, prepping the skin and making it a smooth canvas for products to come.

The texture is kinda watery, but thicker than normal toners. Plus, it is easily absorbed by my skin, leaving it supple and smooth. I normally use toners that need cotton pads, so at first I was quite taken aback by one who doesn't need cotton pads ๐Ÿ˜… But I was pleasantly surprised, cos it made my skin so hydrated even without the use of cream. 

Step 3 
Fixer Cream. powerful moisturizing properties are packed into this little jar that provides the skin with hydration for up to 24 hours for a fresh, revitalized complexion
(Buy it here)

This cream is also easily absorbed and makes your skin instantly glow! Stay hydrated all day with this cream.

Actually, when I used these products in Korea, they were amazing. My makeup stayed on all day, more than 12 hours without any touch up, with just a little oiliness at my T-zone which is perfectly normal. So naturally I was excited at seeing them perform in the Malaysia weather. 
They performed well in the Malaysia weather too, just that my T-zone got a bit more oilier compared to when I used it in Seoul haha! Cos of the weather I think. Nothing a bit of touch up wouldn't help!
And even after I removed my make up after a long day, my skin doesn't feel stripped off, but instead still feels smooth and hydrated. Much wow!

Overall, these products definitely surpassed my expectations. And not to mention, worth for value too! They can definitely compete with the high end beauty products out there. Plus, its only a 3 step skincare routine perfect for those lazybums (like me!) who dislike complicated skin care routine. I have totally jump ship okay no more expensive skin care products cos Althea provides more affordable and easy to use skin care suitable for everyone!
