My review:
If I'm being honest, I totally love Althea Velvet Powder! From the fragrance to its functionality, it's totally worth it!

Each pat with Althea Velvet Powder was pure bliss. It has a light floral fragrance that makes powder time a pleasurable experience, plus it has skin-friendly ingredients!

At first, I thought that there was minimal contents in its small tub, but I soon found out that a little goes a long way. Just one pat and the face already looks velvety.

Powder is finely milled; shot with flash.

However, since I have problematic skin (ehem, enlarged pores and acne scars), instead of dusting a sheer veil, I decided to use the puff to pat on MULTIPLE layers. But guess what? It did not feel heavy or cakey!

Even when I went outside to test it and I got sweaty due to all that walking, it lasted me the whole day. By night, there was just a bit of dewiness on the some areas like the cheek, nose and forehead, but my face was not a giant oil slick.

Ethereal glow with Althea petal velvet powder. Did not post edit; just raw picture taken under natural light.

There are some HD powders that are not flash photography-friendly (gives white patches, hello Nicole Kidman accident), so I tested this alone without any other product/bb cream underneath, used the camera flash, and behold! There was no white cast/flashback in my face in the pic (just make sure to have blended well)!

The packaging may be pink and simple, but SIMPLY PERFECT sure is an apt way to describe it!

In conclusion:
I would definitely recommend Althea Korea Petal Velvet Powder! It should be a staple in your makeup drawer or pouch, ladies! Thanks for reading! :)


  1. Now that's amazing! And the baby Althea box is so cute! I want to try it too but not for now. This have to wait for a month or two. I still have a lot of things to save up for. But i will definitely get this!

    1. HI +Jhake O. Yes the packaging really is cute! And of course, more important things are a priority, but I would suggest when budget permits, get their boxes, there is a lot of products in it for a php 1000 price. it is more sulit, like you save 70% or more! Then you can add this powder to cart. Para free shipping :) Thanks for dropping by!
