Althea's latest addition - Petal Velvet Sunaway with SPF 50+ PA++++

Althea Korea is no longer just an online shopping website that offers various Korean beauty fixes, as they  have been having their very own line of products since 2017. I've always been pleased with the results from their own line of products. From their very first own beauty products. These range from the Althea Petal Velvet Powder to the recent August launch, the Real Fresh Skin Detoxer.

The most famous breakthrough launch was the Bare Essentials' skincare range which was launched in April 2018. It was designed to take care of our complexion by using effective yet simple skincare products. 


The newest addition to Althea's product family is the Petal Velvet Sunaway with SPF 50+ PA++++ (SGD13 for 55ml). It is formulated with a light and fluid texture to protect the skin against UVA and UVB rays.


Petal Velvet Sunaway contains Damask Rose extracts to smoothen the skin. Damask Rose has a natural composition that is rich in vitamins, which penetrate deep into the skin, soothing sensitive spots and strengthening it for a radiant glow. 


The sunscreen glides well on the skin without leaving a white cast after application. I was so delighted to be given a chance to try it out, as sunscreen is a one of the MUST-USE products in my skincare routine. After using the Petal Velvet Sunaway product for a week, I found the results extremely satisfactory, and I must say really love this lightweight sunscreen that protects my face from UV rays and against the harmful environmental radicals. 


I also loved the mild scent of Damask rose fragrance when I applied the Petal Velvet Sunaway on myself. The product controls excessive sebum levels on the skin and replenishes moisture levels throughout the day. You can also use it as a primer, as it gives a light velvety finish. Do remember to shake it well before using it! 


Apart from Althea's sunscreen, they also included 3 of their Petal Velvet Powders and holographic case in the parcel. Thank you for showering your love to me again, Althea Korea!

  

I've tried the Translucent shade #0 - (SGD6) when it was launched last year, and it really helped me well by controlling the sebum levels on my t-zone area. Do read my review on the Althea Petal Velvet Powder.


 Recently, they just launched a Warm Beige shade #23 - (SGD6) which offers a light coverage as well as a 3rd Anniversary Lavender Limited Edition #Pink - (SGD6.50) which gives a boost to dull and uneven tones skin.


The combination of using the Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway and the Althea Petal Velvet Powder work great together to ensure best results for our complexion! Most importantly, the products from Althea are very comfortable for our pockets, as Althea wants everyone to enjoy the goodness at an affordable price! 


A special shoutout to Althea Korea for the beautiful holographic case which I now use to keep my make-up brushes! 



Althea Korea is giving a 10% discount for their Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway for their special launch promotion. If you are getting it together with a Petal Velvet Powder of your choice, you get a 20% discount off your total purchase. 


 Absolutely flawless! Do visit Althea Official Website to get them soon!

Chanel LE ROUGE Pop-Up + An Evening with the Stars’ starring TheEdwards Twins

Recently, I visited the interactive pop-up Chanel LE ROUGE Showcase which was located at 72-13 Mohammed Sultan Road. Baby was pretty supportive to accompany me to this beauty event.

Chanel LE ROUGE Pop Up is an exclusive event pertaining to exploration of beauty through 'Red', Gabrielle Chanel's favorite color. 



Check out the coveted red edition of Chanel No.5 L'Eau and No.5 Eau De Parfum which were exclusively pre-launched at the pop-up! 





To sum up my trip, both Baby and I took some random photos at the Geometric Red Corridor which was designed to make us look like we were within the crimson No.5 bottle itself. 




Thank so much to Expat Choice for the tickets to catch top-tier Las Vegas impersonators, The Edwards Twins. 


Many favorite superstars of mine came alive in ‘An Evening with the Stars’ at the Resorts World Theatre.



Bette Midler


Cher



Sonny & Cher



Catch The Edwards Twins' awesome performance if you can, as I found it very entertaining. It's a trip down memory lane that you wouldn't want to miss indeed! My girlfriends and I enjoyed ourselves very much, as the twins really offered quality entertainment to the audience!


Bad hair days are passé now with the aid of Ellips Hair Vitamin Pro-Keratin Hair Repair, which I found  did a wonderful job in managing my frizzy hair to look tamer, smoother and healthier. It is enriched with Moroccan Oil, Jojoba Oil Vitamin A,C,E & Pro VitB5. 


The process of styling of hair is pretty hurtful to our hair as the heat might cause split-ends, but with Ellips Hair Vitamin Pro-Keratin Hair Repair, you can now reduce the damage. I love the blister pack which is great for travel-use! 


Ellips Hair Vitamin Pro-Keratin Hair Repair is a leave-on serum which is to be applied on towel-dried hair, and it has a sweet floral scent! Thanks Home Tester Club for sending the product over!

Preview Screening of The Lingering + Canon x PaperMarket Photo Frame Workshop

I am really grateful that I got the opportunity to attend the movie preview screening of 'The Lingering'.


On the eve of Chinese New Year, Qingyi and her son Dawa, awaited for husband/father Shizi's return from work. They are staying in a remote village, while the husband works in the town a fair distance away. Unfortunately, Shizi never comes home. Dawa starts seeing a strange apparition, which Qingyi cannot see. In the meantime, Qingyi leaves the boy with her neighbour in order to travel to the  village committee building, which has the only telephone that will allow her to contact her husband's workplace. Unfortunately, she winds up hearing that a terrible accident has occurred at the factory, and her husband is no more.




The story then shifts to 30 years later, where  Dawa has grown up and shifted away from the village. He hears about his mother's death and returns to the village to handle the necessary funeral arrangements and other issues. While this is happening, a real estate agent tries asking him to sell his mother's house where he had grown up as a child. He requires the property certificate to  proceed with the sale, but cannot find the document. Strange things start to happen, and the show tries to make it seem as if it is a warning not to sell the house.



Overall, I was disappointed by the CGI effects, as I felt that it could have been done better. Nevertheless, the ambiance and lighting of the movie was fairly well executed in order to portray an eerie and creepy feeling to the audience. The old age make-up on Athena Chu is worth mentioning! 

Thanks once again for the tickets to the movie preview! 


I attended the Canon x PaperMarket Photo Frame Workshop which was held at Canon Singapore Office, located at Fusionopolis - Galaxis. I really love the photo quality which was printed directly from my iPhone/Mini iPad. The link up for the output printer was easy, fast and hassle-free. Thanks for preparing the materials and allowing us to print out our favorite photos from our smart devices! Lastly, thanks for the invite!



Thanks Baby for getting for me this cute unicorn make-up pouch from Shopee. Thanks for pampering me always with small gifts as surprise! 



Recently, I picked up a pair of earrings for RM25 from KSL City Mall. These pastel flower petal earrings are now trending, so do pick up a pair soon!



I end my post with a recent weekend lunch with my Baby. We had a plate of simple Wanton Mee at Timbre+ which is located at JTC LaunchPad @ one-north. 


Lastly, thanks ORBIS for the lovely travel-size giveaway, The Cleansing One Makeup Remover, and this will surely come in handy for my upcoming overseas trip!
