New Product Alert: Real Fresh Skin Detoxer

Hello loves!

Living in the city can make one feel like time flies so fast. Specially when you're part of the workforce and you have to balance your work, relationships, errands, and other such responsibilities. I personally struggle to keep everything in order and at the same time find time to spoil myself with what I like and that includes giving my skin a bit more TLC! 

I try to get my hands on products that suit my skin's needs from the right cleanser to the serums that deal with my skin concerns. I have a handful of products that I use in a daily basis as well as products that I add to my routine like exfoliants and masks. There's so many to choose from that it can be intimidating when you're new to the world of skincare. Another set back is the time you invest in applying all these some people just don't have the extra time and patience for it. I know some who do want to improve their skin, but gave up midway and even I personally skip some steps once in a while.

BUT I DO HAVE GOOD NEWS to those fellow busy bees out there who also likes to pamper their skin...




Althea, our one-stop destination for all K-beauty products, just released a product that addresses our need to get smoother, softer, and cleaner skin that will only require a few seconds of your time. It's so good to be true! But if you remember, Althea also produced 3 items, the Bare Essentials set, that are as good as using the 10-step Korean skincare. Althea seems like they are making our wishes come true by making our skincare routine simpler with products that are easy to use. They are like our guardian angels in our beauty adventures! 

Speaking of 'angels,' I would also like to let you know that I was one of the selected few to be an Althea Angel, meaning I'll be able to get news of what's new from Althea and that is why I was able to get the scoop of their latest released product and I am excited to share with you my experience with it! 


Introducing the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer. This product is the result of the collaboration between Althea and Korea's no.1 Beauty TV show, Get It Beauty. I remember watching a few episodes of the show and it also starred our Pambansang Krung-krung, Sandara Park. What I like about the show is how it feels like I'm watching and talking to people who are l like me who loves all things related to beauty. I get to see what looks are popular in South Korea and I get to know about the featured makeup and skincare products in the show. And now, this team-up created a beauty innovation that I'm sure many would be curious about.

With this product, you only need 10 seconds of your time to achieve better-looking skin. It's just like a cleanser when it comes to the usage, but the potency effectivity of a wash-off mask. One is ideal to use in the morning and the other one at night so that your skin feels fresh any time of the day. Below is a graphic that explains the difference of the two variants:

The product combo is made from premium ingredients to refine and purify skin. Here's further information from the Althea website:


"The hustle and bustle of the urban life mean non-stop hectic schedules, but that doesn't mean you can't give your skin the lovin' it needs! Althea's Real Fresh Skin Detoxer is a 10-second, 2-in-1 cleanser pack that showcases real, fresh ingredients and incorporates them into a system that allows a deep, clarifying cleanse while boosting the skin with nutrients and goodness.You’ll get both editions in this set: Rose (made with French rose petals + extract to refine the skin) and Green Tea (contains Jeju green tea leaves + extracts to purify). This product leaves the skin feeling fresh and looking smooth for a healthy, happy complexion!"

HOW TO USE
On dry skin, apply a relatively thick layer and leave on for 10 seconds. Add on a little bit of water and very gently massage in circular motions before rinsing off with water.

I received further information about the products from the Althea Angels team so that I can share more details with you. 

Fresh Skin Real Detoxer
Rose

It contains real may rose petals that help achieve smoother, more refined skin with a radiant glow. These petals were handpicked in Grasse, France. They harvest them once a year within a 5-week period during May. These petals help balance the skin's pH as well as moisturize to give the skin a rosy glow.


You can see that there are tiny bits of real petals in the product. It claims to help purify and improve blood circulation ensuring that our skin stays "revitalized, supple, and bright."


KEY INGREDIENTS

Rose 
Real rose petals - Gently exfoliates the skin and gives a light, pleasant fragrance 

Rose extract 
Deeply hydrating and soothes irritations, refines the skin and smoothens rough textures 

Glycerin 
A humectant that attracts moisture to the skin, preventing dehydration 



What I first noticed is how great it smells. I love the scent of roses and it's a great thing to wake up to in the morning which makes using this product even a better experience for me.

The texture is pretty thick and it lathers when mixed with a bit of water. Once I washed it off, I instantly felt that my skin feels softer and smoother. I was amazed to be honest!

I've only been using this for a week and I really like it. It feels gentle and very moisturizing. 


Fresh Skin Real Detoxer
Green Tea

It contains tea collected from Jeju plantations. They picked the "softest and most delicate baby leaves" which contains an abundance of Catechin, "which has 5 times more Vitamin C than the lemon does." I like Vitamin C on my skin so seeing this claim even made me more interested in this product, plus, I'm a tea drinker so I'm already a fan even before I tried it! Haha!


The product claims to cleanse, soothe, and nourish skin as the Jeju green tea powder helps relieve stressed skin and control sebum.


And just like the other variant, I'm a fan of this scent as well! The scent alone makes the whole experience a delight for me.

When you look closely, you'll see small tea leaves in the product.


Both products have similar consistency and they both leave my skin feeling supple and smooth.



KEY INGREDIENTS

Green Tea 
Real green tea leaves- Gently exfoliates the skin and gives a light, pleasant fragrance 

Green tea extract
Contains vitamin C and amino acids to purify and strengthen the skin 

Glycerin 
A humectant that attracts moisture to the skin, preventing dehydration

This is such a brilliant concept because the time you save really makes a difference. Only ten seconds and my face feels like I already used moisturizer. Although I have to admit, I still use my other products (toner, serums, moisturizers, etc.) because I'm used to the routine. But these products are just like the wash-off masks I've used (that you normally wear for an average of 10-20 minutes) and I get the same result but with super less time wasted and you feel the result in an instant.

I really recommend you check these babies out and see firsthand the effects of the Skin Detoxers. Right now, Althea has them on promo wherein you get both for the price of one. This runs for a limited time only and while supplies lasts.
