Review: Althea Petal Velvet Powder

23 October 2017

It's pink, it comes from the Beauty Wonderland that is Korea straight to your doorstep in 10 to 15 days, and it can drive everyone into a beauty frenzy --- it's Althea! Now that they have developed their very own product range, I am all for it!

The first product they came up with is the Althea Petal Velvet Powder, and I'm sharing with you my review!

Althea's very own product range is here, and we're starting off strong with the Petal Velvet Powder! This debuting beauty is a translucent powder that sets makeup and leaves behind a silky finish to the touch. Infused with oil from Althea seeds, this powder works to keep sebum production at bay without drying out the skin for a radiant, fresh look, all while giving out a gentle scent. Keep your makeup looking great all day or dust some on to stay shine-free!
If, like me, you experienced dusting baby powder on your face growing up, then using loose powder like this will bring those memories back, except this one is a more "grownup" version. Being their first product, I admit I didn't have high expectations especially as I already love my Ellana Sheer Velvet Powder Primer and Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder which serve the same purpose, but of course I was willing to try this one and see if it works well.


The Althea Petal Velvet Powder is definitely more compact at 3g so it's a nice addition to any makeup kit. I would have preferred it with a mirror just so I wouldn't have to tote a separate compact, but for its P210 price tag I guess it's not so bad. The powder is very finely milled and blends nicely on the skin.


I can definitely say it's ideal for everyday use/ quick grocery runs/ casual day-outs, but I also put it to the test on a big event we did.


It makes for a great setting powder to make sure your makeup doesn't budge. It also mattifies the face and keeps the oilies at bay! My makeup definitely stayed on longer than it usually does so if you're looking for a setting powder that won't break the bank, then purchase your own from Althea Korea now! ;)
