Keep the sun away!

A lightweight sunscreen that protects the skin from UV rays with a petal-like finish.

This is the October 2018 addition to the Althea brand product range and it's a sunblock that has SPF 50+ PA++++ (extremely high UVA protection). This sunblock was perfectly designed for residence in the country with tropical weather as it provides strong UV protection whilst keeping it lightweight, non-greasy, non-sticky and it doesn't even cause white cast!

Althea said: "Shield your skin from the sun's rays and give it some petal protection with Althea's Petal Velvet Sunaway! Ultra lightweight, this invisible sunscreen is formulated with hyaluronic acid and Damask rose extracts, ensuring that your skin stays fresh and hydrated throughout the day without any stickiness or a white cast. It has an SPF of 50+ and PA++++, so your skin will be kept protected all day. As part of the Petal Velvet line, it also contains micro-powder particles that give you a smooth, petal-like complexion. Or, pair it with your choice of Petal Velvet Powder and get 10% off the petal duo!"


๐Ÿ‘’

Suitable for

  • Daily use: Long-wear and Strong Protection
  • Moisture Sebum Control without white cast / stickiness
  • All skin types even those with sensitive skin



While this product contains four features: Natural Ingredients, Soft as a Flower Petal (lightweight formula), No White Cast, and Cruelty Free, there are three key features/ingredients of this product: Micro particles, sebum control and Damask rose extract. Each key feature/ingredient plays a vital role to keep this product lightweight, non-sticky, non-greasy, moisturizing and provide radiant glow.


๐Ÿ’ 

Micro particles: Velvet Finish

This sunblock has a light weight texture with a very powerful UV protection from a non-chemical formula with an airy, fluid texture to protect the skin from UVA and UVB rays. The non-chemical UV filter adhere well on the surface of the skin and scatters UV light. The formula is gentle on sensitive skin without chemical ingredients and it does not leave a white cast behind due to a more transparent formula.




๐Ÿƒ

Sebum control: Petal-like Complexion

The velvety finishing yet hydrating formula controls excessive sebum on the skin with a micro powder system while the hyaluronic acid ensures the skin is kept hydrated throughout the day. The micro powder barrier refers to the micro particles that absorb sebum and excess oil from the skin to give a light, airy and velvety finish. As you apply the product, the hyaluronic acid replenishes moisture and deeply hydrates the skin.




๐ŸŒท

Damask Rose Extracts

The extract moisturize and smoothen the skin while healing acne. It has natural nanomolecular composition that is rich in vitamins to penetrate deep into the skin, soothing sensitivities and strengthening it for a radiant glow.



Ingredients

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Zinc Oxide, Disiloxane, Propanediol, Titanium Dioxide, Dicaprylyl Ether, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Pogostemon Cablin Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Rosa Damascena Flower Extract, Peg-10 Dimethicone, Stearic Acid, Aluminum Hydroxide, Vinyl Dimethicone/Methicone Silsesquioxane Crosspolymer, Sodium Chloride, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sorbitan Caprylate, Glyceryl Caprylate, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinoleate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Ethyl Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol

For more information about the ingredients:
Skincarisma | Cosdna 
Each sites explain the ingredients differently.



๐Ÿ‘

How to use

Step 1: Make sure your skin is clean before application. To use this with your skin care routine, proceed with cleansing, toning and moisturizing your skin before applying the sun screen. If you'd like to use makeup, you can use the sunscreen before makeup.

Cleanser → Toner → Moisturizer → Sunblock  → Makeup


Step 2: Shake well. Apply a generous layer evenly onto your skin in the morning or 10 minutes before sun exposure. I'd usually suggest with 10 minutes before exposing your skin to sunlight / UV light. 


Step 3: Spread the sunscreen across your skin evenly. You'll find that it spreads out pretty easily and does not leave patchy marks or white casts. Once you're done, you can leave it as it is.  You can also do your makeup after applying sunscreen. On the other hand, you can set the sunscreen for an even silkier and velvety finishing texture on your skin with the Althea Petal Velvet Powder.

The left half of the demonstration is where I spread the sunblock all over that side of my arm. Noticed that my skin does not look pale with white cast yet it gives a hint of radiant glow. The area which I did not spread the sunblock remains dull and yellowish. Results would be more obvious in real life. 

๐ŸŒน

Verdict

I am actually enjoying this sunscreen because it's so light and it smells so amazing. Its scent is like a type of rose essential oil (yes there are many types) and I think the sage oil, bergamot oil and geranium oil are doing amazing pairing up together. In fact, it does smell like rose geranium essential oil since there's geranium oil in it.

The texture itself is really soft. It's watery too but if you're not careful, you might find yourself looking at transparent liquid flowing down the opening of the tub (I'm assuming it's the rose extract) so you really have to remember shaking the bottle before using. I would also assume that when it is undisturbed, the liquid in the bottle will be separated to two layers due to density: transparent liquid on top (rose extract?) and the rest of the content remain below.

The application process was very easy. The sunblock can be evenly applied across the face effortlessly. The tube itself makes it easy to squeeze the content out without too much effort, too. My eczema skin did not feel any stinging or discomfort too. Although I did hear from a friend that her acne prone skin find this product triggering her breakouts. So far, everyone else who had tried this product shown no issues with it though. Hence, for anyone with acne prone skin, you might want to check the ingredient list and identify if you are allergic or sensitive towards any of the ingredients.

Hours after application, my skin remains smooth and the sunblock still feels very light. It doesn't feel sticky or greasy at all! By setting the sunblock with powder, it does make my skin feels velvety. However, I prefer to leave it as it be without any powder setting or makeup, especially when I don't have any intention to meet people aside from my colleagues at work. (I'm currently not wearing makeup to work but it will change once I change job.) While I don't usually end the day with greasy face, certain base product such as tinted sunblock or foundation  (from certain brands) do. This sunblock is definitely not the type to leave my skin greasy at the end of the day.

The pricing of the sunscreen seems justifiable because a typical sunblock at a similar SPF range and price range would cost around RM50 or more. Not to mention that this product has natural ingredients along with high PA level. It's also very uncommon to see a PA ++++ sunscreen in the market. Besides, those with high SPF and PA levels are typically for body and they always end up getting sticky and greasy the moment you apply. Not to mention that they cause a lot of white cast. Hence, my discontinuation of using body sunblock. But to my surprise, not only that this brand offers one that doesn't cause discomfort, it's also relatively affordable.

Overall, aside from Clinelle's sunblock, this is definitely a recommended sunblock. If you'd like to purchase and it's your first time, you can use my link to signup and gain discounts for your first purchase!

How to Young Adult 101 | Don't want crying babies. Don't want crying meemies.

Before we start, I just want to say that: this post is long. Like, really long. But don't be discouraged because you won't find information like this in many places. I would suggest you to sit down and spend a few minutes to read through everything. Also, I would highly discourage screen-through reading or fast-reading.

Sex!  Ew!

Oh what a vulgar, vulgar word to see for conservative people. This is a taboo for most older people but it shouldn't be. Truth be told I'm not a staunchly religious person nor am I someone who finds the act of consensual intimacy disgraceful (except adultery). I was brought up in a semi-old fashioned family but I allow myself to learn and be open-minded. To me, this isn't about who's more sexually active or not. I don't see the relation between "using a birth control" = "very sexually active" because even those who don't use any birth control can be very active too but that's really not the point in this blog post.

In other words, it's not about who's a whore or a player. I really don't care how sexually active you are because that is your business. Other people shouldn't be concerned about it and they should mind their own f-king business if they do. The point of this blog post is about protecting yourself from unexpected (or unwanted) stress, burden and fatigue from every single aspect: financially, mentally and physically.

In this world, everyone has their very own opinion about this, combined with their own culture and religion. See, I do respect all religion teachings and I understand that people may have old-fashioned thinking. However, this blog post is dedicated for those who are (mentally) mature and open-minded, regardless of their race, culture and religion. (It means you should leave if you're only here to judge or laugh. Pregnancy prevention isn't a laughing matter. If you want something to laugh at, then you can consider laughing at your own life because you are immature.) In this place, we respect everyone's opinions and decisions but we will not stand for hate, discrimination and judgmental comments. However, if you're a medical student/doctor with more knowledge about this, please do let me know what you think bout the information. I am up for corrections.

Also, be a dear and share this with your friends, okay? ๐Ÿ’–
Unexpected pregnancy is sometimes a blessing but not all the time, especially when a couple can't handle the stress and burden. So do feel free to share this and save a life.

๐Ÿ“–

Why I'm writing this


Now it's hard to get complete information because *sigh* it really isn't easy to look for information in Malaysia as it would be in America. Many gynecologists don't have the proper platform for people to inquire and usually people need to visit them by appointment just to consult them on a few things instead of actually getting treatment. Sure, I could also ask the nurses but they usually give me short answers with an annoyed tone. I guess I'm not worth their 'precious' time *sigh*. Most of the local professionals in this industry don't actually contribute information on the internet so that also made things harder to find on Google.

When I had discussed this topic with my peers, many of them were baffled at how much information they've missed. My friends are all mature people. Some had already ventured into the journey of intimacy, some are having thoughts about it and the rest are innocent virgins that hadn't made attempts to obtain any knowledge. Majority of them questioned why it's so hard to find information online and that our government's sex education programs don't cover enough information.

I still remember the two sessions, one during my Standard 6 and another during high school. They had only briefly covered about condoms, IUD and spermicide. Telling us sex is bad and that we're too young for it but never actually explained why. I still remember one of the disciplinary teachers had told us not to kiss because "once you've started it, you can't stop and then you'll get pregnant." I'm laughing now as I typed that because I still remember how serious he was trying to sound. It's true that many youngsters have no self-control but not all, ya know. Other than that, they've hardly helped in reducing teen pregnancy, at least for the people at my age.

I've heard about so many people marrying at a young age since I was 16 years old because they've got (someone) knocked up. A few were divorced within a year or so, simply because they figured that they were too young when they got married. So now, they "want someone new / freedom." Dick move, I know, which is why I'm writing this blog post: to try to avoid bad endings like those scenarios, not just for myself but for other people as well.

How to Young Adult 101| An Amateur's Young Adult Financial Guide for the Amateurs.


You asked for it and I delivered it ๐Ÿ˜˜
(On Instagram I mean, because I talked about this on my IG story)

Note: Reading this on PC is a lot more easier :>

I'm gonna keep this as comprehensible as possible. But let me just begin with: if you're not good at managing your life, it's about time you start now. I was a Monash student since their Pre-u programe and oh my god they forced me into planning my life so hard. I was just fresh out of high school and I was literally 'Really Young, really Dumb and really Broke.' Time management and financial management was crucial since then until I'm a graduate but life has you difficult when you basically need money for everything, even for clean air and happiness (tell me you won't be happier if you get to eat your favorite food? At least I do). Also, I get very anxious if I feel like I don't have enough money in my bank account. Like, I would be stressing everyday about money and sound annoying.

So to make sure that life won't flip me over with negative balances and debts (from my parents), I decided to make things super clear by literally jotting everything down. Okay, not everything because I'm forgetful but I managed to record 90% of my expenses along with my plannings.

Unboxing, Haul & Gifts! | It's a birthday!

My birthday was the first Sunday of this month and while I didn't celebrate with many people, I did treat myself the way I couldn't before. Not only that, I have a wonderful friends and an amazing boyfriend who had gotten me something too ๐Ÿ’ Not to mention that there are many perks from brands available during birthday month! I redeemed so many perks, my boyfriend and I didn't even spend over RM150 on my birthday (besides the gifts he got me of course :p) !

Read about birthday promos/privileges here:

Here are a list of the things that I bought and received. I'll also explain why I bought those items instead of other available substitutes.


Sephora Haul

Total: RM 1046 | After 20% Off: RM 836.80

I'm a black card member but I don't usually spend money in Sephora. Seeing that my card is expiring on 23rd October and that I needed to spend at least RM781 for renewal kinda made me wanna spend as much. It's a bit of a reckless thing to do but I've finally got my first job, my birthday is this month and there's a 20% sale going on too. Eventually, I thought to myself, why the heck not? So I grabbed a cart and spent quite a long time in the store to decide what I want.

While I was deciding, I also used the Sephora app to do the calculation for the entire cart since it's easier than typing repeatedly on the calculator app. At the same time, I can instantly search for similar substitutes and compare prices without running around the store.

This shade is the darkest in the set and you can use it alone for monotone lids or as darker colours to contour your eyelids. You can also use it as eyeliner where you only apply near the roots of your lashes.


Here's a swatch for the shade: Seeker


Application

For Max Coverage - Use your fingertip and tap shadow directly onto the eyelid. A flat, firm synthetic brush will also work and is perfect for detailed application close to the lash line.

To Blend - Use a fluffy synthetic brush with good movement, dip the tip into the shadow and apply with a "windshield wiper" movement throughout the crease of the eye for a soft and diffused look.

Verdict

The colours are pretty cool but they turned out to be a little brighter than expected. Probably not so ideal for people with darker skin than medium but hey! You can always give it a try :) These are cream shadows so there wouldn't be any fallouts during application. It's pretty easy to smudge the colours during application and stays put for quite a while. I also like that the colours are versatile for many occassions. They are also buildable! Pretty convenient for those who are on the go, especially since the pots are small enough to fit anywhere. It also helps reducing the fear of breaking makeup because you wouldn't know if your powder makeup might crack in your makeup bag. Cream shadows will definitely not crack.

When there are pros, there are also cons. Since it's a cream shadow, you have to remember not to leave the lid open or loose. Otherwise it might get dried up. However, that's not a big issue for me since I have a habit to cover the lids whenever I'm done using something that requires that action. So it's pretty fine by me. 

Overall, it's a nice product to have and experience, albeit I don't see myself repurchasing since the options for eye shadows are so, so, so high. I wanna try more eye shadows in the world!
