Full Review Althea Bare Essentials Set

I believe, true beauty is empowering. It is liberating. Being unafraid to speak your mind, unabashed to face the world sans a ton of makeup, fancy clothes or layers of jewelry. Beauty is YOU. Simply being your unique self is a gift to the world. Fortunately for us, being comfortable in your own skin is easier than ever with Althea Korea's second baby - the Bare Essentials line.

As a beauty guru once said, beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.

Skin care is essential. Even if you are wearing makeup, blemishes like bumps or pitted scars are visible especially when light and shadow play. That is why it is important to take care of your canvas.

 I've been using Althea Korea Bare Essentials set for almost 2 months  before finally coming up with this review! Coz if I only use this once and then come up with a review, then it is not very truthful, is it? It's just a first impression!

Complicated skincare steps make your skin tired. So simplify and give your skin what it really needs. Infused with nourishing and hydrating ingredients from nature, Althea Korea's 3-step skincare is all you need to keep your skin at its most optimal and comfortable state. Don't just cover up anymore - complete your skin's makeup with Bare Essentials!

Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser

Minimize and re-energize!
Contains Ice Plant (a native plant of South Africa that helps cool & refresh skin) and Lemon Verbena  (a South American flowering herb with 9 times more fragrance & detox effects than regular lemons), this helps to improve the face's blood circulation with the help of gentle micro capsules, effectively giving you a cleansed, slim face.

Beauty Blogger Review:

  • Very mild scent.
  • Has granules or capsules for mild skin exfoliation.
  • Immediately skin looks refined.
  • With regular use, helped define features like cheekbones, jawline, I think it may also help give a smaller face.

Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water

Reset, refresh & destress!
Using the synergy of Snow Lotus (one of the rarest herbs in the world) and Althea's Dewdrop Technology (Macro Fluidic Dispersion- Althea's patented formulation that helps soften and improve the skin's suppleness), this hydrates and preps the the skin on multiple layers, leaving it with a silky finish and an enhanced natural glow from within.

Althea Primer Water Price Php 550

Beauty Blogger Review:

  • Fragrance free.
  • More like a gel than a liquid (hybrid?)
  • No sting or irritation.
  • You can use it by applying it with your palms but I personally use it with a cotton ball to make sure any cleanser or makeup residue is removed.

With the help of Trehalose (the cactus' resilient water storage secret), Baobab Tree (the highest antioxidant content in any fruit) plus Wild Green Tea and  Lavender (powerful antioxidants), this will leave you feeling plump & moisturized for 24 hours without a hint of stickiness.

  • No breakouts!

I am especially impressed with Althea's uncomplicated 3 step approach to skin care. Sure, K-beauty is known for the 10 step right? But sometimes we are just too tired and sleepy and who has the time, so the basic 3 step (cleanse, tone, moisturize) is still your best bet!

It has no fussy or frilly decorative packaging but the minimalistic approach speaks volumes- SIMPLE YET FUNCTIONAL AND EFFECTIVE.

These are all made in Korea that's why I believe of their high quality.

What I do love is that it helped clear up the bumps that I had prior to using it and it also made my skin plump, smooth and clear, preventing pimples. This truly delivers.

Did you know, upon its announcement, there was a 10,000 person waitlist? It's highly coveted with lots of people waiting to get their hands on these best products that give glowing flawless crystal skin!

Furthermore, it's very economical. As I've said, I've been using Althea Korea Bare Essentials set for almost 2 months and hey, the contents are barely halfway. (Full disclosure: I use it religiously but not every single day though. Sometimes I cleanse and use makeup removing micellar water, and other times I use masks.) These babies last a looong time!
