ROSE: Refining



A rose-infused facial mask that would suit your morning routine to strip away dirt accumulated overnight to reveal healthy glowing skin. This product helps to protect and balance the pH levels of the skin and it helps to even out the skin's texture for perfect makeup application.



Real Premium May Rose Petals

May Roses are handpicked once a year during May from Grasse, France
Function: Smooths away roughness and gives the skin a radiant glow

May Roses only bloom once in a year in Grasse, Southern France for just 5 weeks and they are only gathered by handpicking. These premium roses help to balance out the skin's pH, which can be 5 times more effective than normal roses. It also helps to moisturize and provide a rosy radiant glow to the skin through its rich mineral component. The real rose petal pieces (3400ppm) + extract (1000ppm) in the tube help to purify and improve blood circulation, ensuring that the skin stays revitalized, supple, and bright.



The cleansing ingredients are derived from coconut extracts which softly melts down in your skin without causing any irritation and it washes off the pack with mild petal bubbles.

Record the opening date to ensure that the product is at its freshest. Remember to finish the product before it expires! Also, store it in a cool and dry place, preferably away from the heat and direct sunlight. The rose petals within the tube are real which may change colour over time and this is normal. Trust me, I work in a florist shop. The natural discoloration will not affect its product quality and function. It will remain safe to use.

After that, wet your palms and massage your skin in circular motions with petals bubbles (the masks will then behave like a cleanser) and rinse it off right after. You can proceed with the rest of your skin care routine after this.



Review:

The smell resembles a real and fresh rose scent with a hint of premium and luxurious feeling. This is, of course, because they've used real roses in it. The gel is very thick but easy to spread around your skin. Washing can be a little hectic since its so thick but messaging with wet palm helps to ease it quite well. The mask is very gentle to the skin and I had felt no irritation at all even with the bubbles. Though, it can be a little bit drying to your skin if you've made too much bubbles.



I really like spreading the gel around because it feels so satisfyingggggggggg. The rose petals feel really gentle on the skin and you won't really feel it there.


While it is advised to apply a thick layer, I personally like it to be thinner since it allows me to wash off faster. I need more time in my life than my skin does 😭 Good thing these masks only needed 10 seconds to do their job.

Review:

Boy, oh boy. It smells so refreshing. When I was applying, I can literally feel little grains of the tea leaves. Since I've tried applying a thick layer with the Rose one, I applied a thinner layer with this product and the scent is actually super strong. 



When I said I can feel the grains of the blended tea leaves, I don't mean that they felt like microbeads from a liquid exfoliator. They feel like powdered items that cannot be dissolved into water, like coffee grounds ya know? Generally, these tea leaves are not powdered but blended so the particles would be bigger. Hence, you can feel it there. It doesn't scratch my skin and yet I felt it gently exfoliating my pores. 


I felt that this flavour is more moisturizing than the rose one. My skin felt like baby skin after using it 😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚😚 I was so surprised and giddy when I touch my skin. It's a pleasant surprise and I really do enjoy it. I also noticed that my skin feels cooler after washing the masks off. This is helpful especially when my eczema gets triggered and my skin will turn red and hot.

Verdict

I genuinely love these masks because they made life so much easier for me. You'd think that 10 mins of doing mask would be short but trust me, I live a life where I can't even spare 10 mins for masks. So, the existence of a 10 SECONDS mask really saved my life. Not to mention that it works as a secondary cleanser. It's a mask and a cleanser. Wew

Anyway, they really did the job of moisturizing my skin and purifying my pores without making me itch at all. (My eczema-prone skin itches really easily, especially when I used the wrong products.) I personally prefer the Green Tea flavour. The bubbles are gentle and it felt like it did its job more as compared to the rose mask. It has a stronger scent than the rose mask too.

While the masks were designed to be used during the day (rose) and night (green tea) respectively, they can be used any time during the day. It really does depends on your own skin type and condition. I have combination + sensitive skin and I can use both of these products without any issues. If you have a drier/sensitive skin, you should use the rose flavour as it contains lesser ingredient list (lesser chance to irritate your skin) whereas if you're looking for more awakening + soothing + deep cleansing, you should use the green tea one. Both can be pretty drying if you leave the mask on for over 10 seconds, so be careful!

On the other hand, I believe that the total duration of usage for the entire bottle will not last as long as Althea's skin care set. They probably will  be finished within 1-2 months time if used daily. (Yes you can use them daily!) If I use them weekly, they will last about 3-5 months. Personally, I think that I will use it on a twice-a-week basis. The Althea Bare Mineral skin care set has already given me enough moisture and the masks will only act as a booster, so using the masks twice a week will be sufficient.

Looking at the price range from Althea's existing products, this product seems to be within the range of their usual pricing (RM16-50). For now, Althea is having a B1F1 promo set that allows you to buy two at the price of one! The set consist one of each flavours and it is only available for a limited amount of time. There is no promo code needed. Just add the set into the cart and the promotion will be automatically applicable. Shop here. I'll also purchase a set to giveaway! Check out my Instagram for more details heh.

P.s.: my boyfie πŸ’• really like the rose one and he thinks that it made his skin softer.

Rating:

Smell: 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱
Comfort: πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
Moisturizing: πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€
Refining: 🌸🌸🌸🌸
Purifying: 🌳🌳🌳🌳
Price: πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

Repurchase: Sure, yes.
Reason: It's so convenient. You only need 10 secs to feel better instead of 10-20 min. I live a hectic lifestyle so I definitely need this all the time. Overall performance is amazing but I wouldn't use it too often as the pricing caught me off guard a little. I'll try to use as little as possible before the expiry to keep it as long as possible. I still love it tho!





That's all for this post!
