Althea Korea Milk Peel Cream Mask
Bought for: Free | SRP: P490/50ml
From: Althea Korea
I am so happy that Althea Korea keeps growing and I'm being a part of it. I am also grateful to be one of the Althea Angels and preaching about the brand I love and trust when it comes to makeup and skincare. Last month, they released another product I've been so excited to try and finally after a month of use, I'm ready to share what I knew and experienced. My review is coming up in a short while so hold your horses!
Give your skin a big gulp of hydration with the refreshing peeling powers of Althea's Milk Peel Cream Mask! Containing both AHA and BHA extracts, this gentle but effective exfoliator transforms from a clay to a whipped cream lather, whisking away dead skin cells to prevent flakiness. It’s also formulated with casein protein from milk to revitalize and moisturize the skin. The result is radiantly smooth, healthy skin that's bouncy to the touch!
HOW TO USE
Dampen the skin and apply an even layer onto the skin, massaging till a rich lather forms. Leave on for 30-60 seconds before rinsing away with warm water.
Water (Aqua), Kaolin, Glycerin, Disiloxane, Bentonite, Propanediol, Myristic Acid, Methyl Perfluoroisobutyl Ether, Stearicacid, Methyl Perfluorobutyl Ether, Potassium Hydroxide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Palmitic Acid , Ethylhexylglycerin, Milk Proteinextract, Disodium Edta, Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Extract, Gluconolactone, Glycolic Acid, Titaniumdioxide (Ci 77891), Fragrance (Parfum), Coumarin*, Hexyl Cinnamal*, Citronellol*
Like most of Althea Korea's product, packaging of this mask is very simple and neat-looking with the white and pastel blue color combination. It's made of sturdy plastic but the pump is somewhat malfunctioning as I've had trouble dispensing the product. I have to press it several times before I get to have a decent amount to use. I would like it better if it comes in a tube-type of container at least I just need to squeeze the product to its bottom rather than pumping it out.
SCENT, TEXTURE AND CONSISTENCY
It smells a little bit like baby powder and despite its powerful ingredients, its scent remains subtle and doesn't smell like harsh chemicals unlike other exfoliating products.
The mask is very rich and is creamy white, almost like mousse in texture and is very easy to blend on the skin. It creates bubbles from the moment you apply it on though not as rich as ELIZAVECCA MILKY PIGGY CARBONATED BUBBLE CLAY MASK which is the only bubble clay mask I've tried aside from Althea's very own. They are both different in texture but both lathers when applied on damp skin.
EASE OF APPLICATION
It's indeed hassle-free to apply and not messy at all. I like that it doesn't sting, rather, it feels soothing and gentle. Unlike other exfoliating products that's painful to use and has the tendency to cause redness, this one does nothing similar. Once applied, it immediately bubbles up and you only need seconds and you're all set. If you are someone who always juggles her time, this is the perfect exfoliating mask for you. Just leave it on for about a minute and then rinse it off. It washes away easily without leaving any white residues on the skin which is pretty usual for a product with rich whipped cream bubble texture.
Being an exfoliating mask, it contains ingredients that are tested and trusted such as AHA (removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin), BHA (removes impurities and unclogs the pores) and Milk (moisturizes and refreshes the skin). All of these works to give skin a smooth texture and clarity. With regular use (approx. 2-3 times weekly), I noticed that my skin has cleared up. Scars and blemishes started to lighten as well as the overall complexion. It brings out the skin's natural glow and I have no questions about that. I've used AHA and BHA infused products before and they just truly deliver.
I can't help but notice that this product has Kaolin Clay and I love it for the fact that it controls oil effectively. Every time I am using this product, I'm not gonna lie but my skin feels a little taut after rinsing and I know it's because of the clay. Since it has a large percentage in the overall formulation, it's able to soak up excessive oil in my skin. The tightness is a bit discomforting but nothing a good moisturizer can't fix. Good thing, this product has milk, at least the dryness caused is reduced. I've tried other masks with Kaolin Clay like the MARIO BADESCU DRYING MASK and boy, that's even dehydrating but it works!
So would I recommend Althea Korea Milk Peel Cream Mask? Absolutely! This is one of the most gentle micro peeling masks I have tried that clears up the skin and keeps it radiant. This step doesn't take too much of your time but rest assured, your skin has been taken care of. It's affordable for a 50ml bottle wherein a little amount would go a long way. You can buy it from ph.althea.kr and use the code PBSHIP to get free shipping!
