Something new from Althea Korea: A'bloom

My cousin Reuben got married last Sunday and I was honored to be one of the bridesmaids ♡ From the get-go I decided I will do my own makeup but because unfortunate things happen at unfortunate times, I suffered the worst breakout in my 33 years of existence two days before the event. I was anxious and stressed, mostly because of course I wanted to look my best for this special occasion. I took two products from the newest kit I got from Althea Korea as an Althea Angel, crossed my fingers, and hoped for the best.

My Althea Angel kit filled with A'bloom products!
I am not kidding. The A'bloom Brightening Lemon Lime Mask and A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster are LIFESAVERS!

Additionally, I'd like to say that I am a sucker for great packaging and oh my, the packaging of these products are too cute for my life! I wanted to just keep them forever but since they're really adorable AND affordable, I guess I have valid reason to hoard!

As mentioned, the A'bloom Brightening Lemon Lime Mask and A'bloom BHA Blackhead Blaster helped me deal with my breakout. Well, they weren't entirely gone but the improvements on my skin were visibly noticeable.


Simply The Zest
  • This brightening mask clarifies and brighten dull skin to unveil the natural glow from within.
  • The double dose of Vitamin C from lemon and lime extracts banishes dark spots and green tea boosts brightening while calming skin.
Key ingredients: Niacinamide, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract

I am not big on masks, to be honest. Well, I like them for self-care days and all, and I cannot deny that relaxing with a book and a mask on is very indulgent, but sometimes it feels too tedious for something whose effects are not really for long-term. Slapping on the Brightening Lemon Lime Mask was very enjoyable for me though because I LOVED the smell. My skin also looked brighter even after washing my face the next day! I also believe the serum helped in calming my skin down and lessening the redness.




Blackhead out without the ouch
  • No pain blackhead and whitehead removal with Natural BHA Stick
  • Gentle and non-irritating formula treats and prevents new ones from forming
Key ingredient: Natural BHA (White Willow Bark Extract 5,000ppm)

The BHA Blackhead Blaster helped me deal with my blackheads and whiteheads without the pain nor discomfort of other products that aim to do the same. It's very easy to use: you just need to apply onto the targeted areas, massage to release trapped oil and dirt, and rinse away! Very convenient and hassle-free!

On the day of the wedding, I woke up with clearer skin, ready for my close up. ;)

I applied my liquid foundation with the A'bloom Giant Meringue Puff included in my Althea Angel kit.




Dessert anyone?
  • Irresistibly sweet and versatile puff to use dry or wet
  • Extra large size ensures quick and even application
Key ingredient: High density latex free foam

I wet this a bit before using it so it won't absorb too much liquid foundation. I loved that it's soft and gentle against my skin but firm enough not to crumble when in use and while washing. The pointed tip easily reached my face's "nooks and crannies", and provided a nice finish with medium coverage. I am looking forward to getting more use out of this puff.

By the way, here was my bridesmaid makeup look from last Sunday:
