[Review] Althea Korea - Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50+ PA++++

Hello everyone! :)

It has been an amazing journey with Althea Korea (as an Althea Angels) this year! They have launched their very own skincare line, and what I have today to share with you is their Petal Velvet Sunaway.

Finding your type of sunscreen seems to be an endless search and it can be frustrating, but I can't wait to show you how this sunscreen works because geez I'm so in love with it!

As quoted from beauty creator Liah Yoo, "the best sunscreen is the one that you would like to wear it every single day".

Our skin differs from one another. This particular sunscreen might work wonders for me, but it doesn't seem that way for the others.

Nonetheless, I am delighted to share with you that I might have found THE SUNSCREEN for my skin.

"Ultra lightweight, this invisible sunscreen is formulated with a moisturizing formula that plumps the skin and Damask rose extracts, ensuring that your complexion stays fresh and hydrated throughout the day without any streakiness or a white cast." -Althea Korea.

The sunscreen comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a velvet pink twist cap (as below). Particular this shade of pink ties back to Althea Korea's Petal Velvet line, which includes the Petal Velvet Powder (now available in Translucent, Shade No.23 and Lavender *Limited Edition*).

The highlight of their Petal Velvet line is that the products will leave your skin velvety smooth-finished as they contain micro-powder particles that control sebum production.

This cruelty-free sunscreen has an SPF of 50+ and PA++++, which ensure your skin'll be kept protected from UV rays all day long.

Speaking of its most prominent element, you wouldn't not miss the rose fragrance once opened the cap. The scent is derived from Damask rose extracts which is included in the ingredient list to moisturize and smoothen the skin. I thought the scent is too strong on my first impression. However, the next thing I realized is that I started to enjoy the therapeutic scent.

Also, it contains Geranium oil, whereby it has the feature to boost skin radiance and heal acne. Sounds like a good combo?

As you can tell from the photos, it has lightweight texture. Watery, but at the same time moisturizing without feeling suffocated on the skin surface.

ALWAYS REMEMBER to shake well before usage, that will ensure the formula has a nice consistency.

Apply a generous layer evenly onto the face in the morning, or at least 30 minutes before any sunny outdoor activity.

The formula has a nicely milky consistency and as you apply it evenly on the skin, you can see it slowly sink down into the skin, leaving the surface slightly sticky (at this point) and no white cast.

...And this is the finished-look (as below). When the formula is fully absorbed, the skin is velvety smooth - not oily nor suffocating.

If I can only recommend one MUST GET item out of the existing Althea Korea's products, this Petal Velvet Sunaway is most certainly my pick, without hesitation. This chemical sunscreen works perfectly (so far) on my skin, and I am totally obsessed with it!! No complain on applying sunscreen everyday.

Besides, personally I think it serves as a good skin toning-up makeup base. Hence, I can skip makeup primer for normal daily makeup.
