Althea Reveals their Newest Skincare Line: Bare Essentials

Last year, Althea released their first ever exclusive product - the Althea Petal Velvet Powder (which I already emptied! *sigh*), and earlier this year, this popular K-beauty and K-skincare online marketplace revealed their latest exclusive skincare line: the Althea Bare Essentials.

Althea's latest label addressess the common problems of many K-beauty fans. Probably most of us have heard about the 10-step Korean skincare routine but in reality, taking care of our skin shouldn't be a very complicated process. The three basic skincare routine is - cleanse, tone, and moisturize and this is what the current skincare line promotes.

You will really fall in love with the minimalism movement of the latest Althea Bare Essentials

Althea’s Bare Essentials focuses on skincare fundamentals and drops all the non-essentials. These thoughtfully crafted products given the benefits of the infamous 10-step Korean skincare routine, rolled into 3 quick and easy steps.

The Contour Cleanser 150g Php 300.00 

Packed with soothing Ice Plant and detoxifying Lemon Myrtle extracts, this cleanser is densely filled with micro capsules that burst upon contact  with water to gently cleanse, exfoliate, and detoxify skin. The Contour Cleanser helps to promote blood circulation, and reduces bloating and swelling for a defined, enviably slim face shape.

I am soooo in love with this cleanser! A pea-sized amount goes a long way. It is very foamy and has micro beads that helps cleanse and wash away dirt. I noticed that the Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser quickly dried my pimples. I love the soft feel on the skin after using this cleanser. I haven't seen visible effects of the slimming part but I will update the blog after a month or two to see.

The Primer Water 200ml Php 550.00

Both a hydrating toner and a primer in one, the Primer Water contains patented dewdrop technology (Macro Fluidic Dispersion technology) that gently fills the gaps between pores and allows hydration to penetrate deep within the layers of the skin. Made with Snow Lotus extracts, this skincare heavy hitter has an incredibly smooth and silky texture that enhances the skin’s natural glow, leaving you with the perfect canvas.

This primer water serves as a toner and moisturizer in one. As I am not a fan of toners and I usually skip this on my skincare step, the Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water helps tone and moisturize the skin. It does not sting so you will not feel it is harsh on the face. It is very mild and a little amount can clean the face.

The Fixer Cream 50g Php 640.00 
This non-oily, quick-absorbing formula harnesses the power of Trehalose, an ingredient found in the cactus plant that prevents its moisture loss, to provide the skin with 24-hour hydration. This ultra-nourishing wonder cream is also rich in antioxidants derived from Camellia Sinensis (green tea) seed oil, and helps to promote collagen regeneration using Baobab Tree extracts. Upon application, your skin is left looking great and feeling bouncy to the touch.

The mild floral scent of this cream made me love it more. I find myself indulged with this skincare now. Before I used to just cleanse and tone but it really feels incomplete now that I have tried using creams. A little amount also goes a long way so I think I can use the whole set for a couple of months.

“As one of the biggest digital beauty brands in Asia, Althea aims to continuously introduce intriguing new products this year to  really show what we can bring  to  the market,” Frank Kang, C.E.O. of Althea discloses. “There will be many innovative products made with  the newest beauty  technology launching in  the Southeast Asian region for the first time. We are very excited to pioneer these trends.”
Update as of April 18, 2018

I have been using this skincare set for almost a month now and I seriously can't believe that it helped improve my skin. I have tried several Korean skincare products to have a smooth skin but so far, the Althea Bare Essentials proved to be the best that I've tried. It didn't cause any allergic reaction after usage and I didn't get any acne or pimples as well. I can say that this skincare is superb for those who wants to be able to get out without makeup on.

Now who's excited with Althea's new releases within the year? I am praying that they will have a new full makeup line. It's going to be a dream come true for K-beauty enthusiasts like me.

The Bare Essentials range consists of three hypoallergenic products that are suitable for all skin types.
