A review on the Althea Korea A’Bloom Collection

I am a fan of K-Beauty products and when Althea Korea introduced the ABloom collection, I knew that I really had to try. My beautiful package came in a customized EId-theme box which was really cute.

THE MERINGUE PUFFS

This is the first time I’m using a beauty blender to apply my makeup. For a first timer using this, I thought it was kinda cool. I use the big one to smooth out my BB Cream whereas the small ones for my concealer. Later, I am going to try it with perhaps blusher and eyeshadow.

BHA BLACKHEAD BUSTER


This is something new to me. I was familiar with the scrubs or nose masks of all sorts to remove blackheads but never have I come across a blaster like this.

It comes in a cute stick form that you could apply straight to your face after cleansing.


I would leave it for a few minutes on my face and then wash it off with water. I do feel a tinge of minty-ness on my face upon application.



This product is readily available on the website and retails at RM19 for 8g worth of substance. It’s so small and convenient that it fits into my travel toileteries bag! You can [purchase it here]

 

A’BLOOM FRUIT MASK SHEET



The masks were a blessing to my constant tiring daily schedule. These masks have common ingredients like fraxinus rhynchophyyla extract, ocimum (basil) and acmella oleracea extract. However, each masks also has additional ingredients for specific functions.




AC-ME PEACH : Anti Blemish Peach Mask Sheet

Ingredient highlight : Peach extract, tea tree leaf
[purchase me here]

I would love to be in a situation where I am fully relaxed on a bed with my face mask on – but due to my busy schedule, I do my masking while I go about my daily life activities. I find that these masks have really generous gunk upon removing them from the package. That means if I wear the mask sheet, my sister can, if she want to, dab the residual ‘slime’ on her face and massage it through. 


It has 25g of essence in a pouch with an eco-friendly mask sheet. With a little more practice I can apply my mask like its a screen protector. 

 

WATER-ME-LONG : Moisturizing Watermelon Mask Sheet 

Ingredient highlight : watermelon extract, lavender & shea butter cream

[purchase me here]






This is me taking the opportunity to do some masking while doing some stuff on my computer. By stuff, that would sometimes mean ‘intense online shopping/bidding’ after a headache navigating through excel. Help. 


SPARKLE-ME-BRIGHT : Brightening Lemon-lime Mask sheet

Ingredient highlight : lemon, lime, green tea
[purchase me here]

This mask sheet boasts of being able to brighten your complexion which I fully agree as it is a known property for any citrus-based product. 


I feel it could benefit those who wants a quick glow before a big event. Say an impromptu dinner date, an important business pitch or even those who wants to look alive despite feeling dead inside. The latter sounds like me for most of the time.
Haha..

 

AVO-CUDDLE-ME : Nourishing Avocado Mask Sheet

Ingredient highlight : avocado & hibiscus extract, shea butter cream

[purchase me here]



This mask claims to have wrinkles improvement effect. In other words, nourishing the skin to slow down aging. In this photo, I was trying to go for the calming, spiritual effect. However, it looks downright comical and weird right now. 

Using it in Ramadhan, especially in between prayers as we wait for Tarawikh is a good idea. The mask does not slip off as I do some Quran reading, zikr or just sit there, shutting my eyes while sitting down. 
 
I think I need to use more than this one mask to fully appreciate the wonders though.


 

Personally, I think these masks also serves as wonderful options as goodie bags fillers. After all they are only priced at RM2/sheet. And if we buy in 10s, it is sold at RM18/10 pieces.

Is that not a bargain??!

I am already contemplating on getting these masks from althea.kr for a beauty workshop I am getting involved with tentatively in September or October. Let’s see if we can scout for other pretty things on althea.kr too.
