2018 is ending… I’m very glad and happy to be accepted to be one of the Althea Angels in Malaysia mid of this year. To close the year, I would love to share the K-Beauty products that I’ve been using in my skincare and beauty routine. Don’t worry, my post on my reflections of 2018 will come for sure.
The top 10 products that I’ve been using and had blogged about are all listed down here. They are all below RM90! I highly recommend them. Even friends are happy using them. I’ve been stocking up from Althea since 2017 mainly because of free shipping and the amazing prices offered in the site. What’s more?!?! They are shipped directly from Korea.
Let’s see what I’m using…
1. Facial Cleanser:
Elizavecca Milky Piggy 24K Gold Snail Cleansing Foam (RM25.00)
Very affordable with 180ml of product. It consists of snail filtrate (1000ppm) which can sooth and protect your skin from environment harm and gold (10ppm) which is able to provide moisture and brighten your skin. A little goes a long way. The foam is very luxurious and wash off easily. No dry and tight feeling after wash. Face felt so clean and soft to touch.

Very gentle bubble mask, dense bubble with baby powder smell, not overpowering. Easily wash off revealing soft clean skin without feeling dry and tight. Great packaging with pump to ensure freshness of the product.

Real Skin Healthy Vinegar Skin Toner (RM43.00)
The one I’m using is Red Viengar but there is also other variant. 300ml of vinegar skin toner to prep the skin for the next step of skincare routine. No sourish smell even though itâ€™s vinegar. Thereâ€™s mild citrus scent. The PH of the toner is 5.5 which is recommended for healthy skin. I would pour a few drops on my palm and pat it on my face until it absorb(it wonâ€™t take long, very fast absorbing) before applying serum or moisturizer. My face is instantly refreshed and hydrated. No stickiness on the skin too. No breakout or redness after using it.

5. Facial Serum:
Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum (RM89.00)
Iâ€™m using it as my daily serum+moisturizer for both day and night. Even though it is serum, it is rich enough for me. Contains organic Jeju green tea and green tea seeds that hydrate your skin from deep within as it is rich in amino acids and minerals. They are using Dual Moisture-Rising Technologyâ„¢ in which fresh green tea can deeply hydrates your skin while green tea seed oil creates a strong moisture barrier to keep your skin moisturized for longer.

6. Multi-purpose Cream:
Guerisson 9-Complex Cream (RM46.00)
The scent is very pleasant and the texture is just like butter. Use it sparingly, just a little will work wonder. If you have normal, oily or combination skin, use very little, donâ€™t be too greedy. When it is applied on the skin, it has emollient effect. If you are staying in places where the air is dry, this is God-sent! I tried it myself when traveling to those dry places or sleeping in air-conditioned room, no itchiness and flaky skin developed on the face and other body parts. It can be used anywhere you feel itâ€™s dry. My friend even applied it on her lips when she was in Japan, she suffered very bad cracked lips and it helped a lot. I have few pigmentation spots on my cheek area and it is lighter now. My pores are smaller too. I did not develop any sensitiveness to the cream.

Petal Velvet Sunaway with SPF 50+ PA++++ (RM43.00)
This bottle is 55ml, thatâ€™s rather huge. Love the simple and minimalist design of the bottle. Sebum control was quite a surprise! I tried blotting my face with one layer of facial tissue after 6 hours, it didnâ€™t soak up the tissue, just a little. Contains Damask rose extract can deeply hydrate and sooth irritations, leaving the skin feeling healthy; hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the skin, preventing dehydration; and Geranium oil to provide the skin with a radiant boost and help in acne healing.

8. Eyebrow Pencil:
Etude Drawing Eye Brow (RM11.00)
Been using this for over 4 years. Easy to use. The head is slanted, itâ€™s great for the brow. No sharpener needed, just twist it to reveal more product. Sweat and smudge proof.

Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher (RM26.00)
The packaging is so cute. Very pigmented and smooth blusher, you donâ€™t need a lot. No shimmer in this. Easily build up. It has sebum control powder and coating pigment. This means it can absorb oil and sweat as well as preventing oxidation. The colour on the cheek can be quite lasting, I did not do any retouch. When I remove my makeup at the end of the day, can still see it on the cotton pad.

10. Sebum Control and Make-up Setting Powder:
Althea Petal Velvet Powder (RM16.00 for #0 Translucent or #23 Warm Beige; RM17.00 for Pink Lavender)
The powder is lightweight and smell really good. Puff is included. You can also apply it with brush. It can be used as makeup setting powder because it has sebum control properties and translucent enough.
#0 Translucent â€“ No coverage, transparent.
#23 Warm Beige â€“ Minimal coverage, can even out skin tone. Not suitable for very fair skin but itâ€™s ok for me.
#Pink Lavender â€“ Not much coverage but gave the skin an illusion of healthy pinkish glow.
