BARE ESSENTIALS: ALTHEA'S NEW AND SIMPLIFIED SKINCARE LINE



Hello dear readers...

If you have been keenly following my blog, you know that I love minimalism, I love the simple life. This 2018, I aim to de-clutter the house.  To let go of the things that I don't use. To just stick to the basics. I know and I accept the fact that it is not an easy task. One step at a time to achieve it.

One of the steps I will try to implement is to try minimalism on skincare.  If you are like me, who are in constant search of what works well on your skin, chances are -- you have loads of skin care products in your cabinets. Or you might have tried the popular 10-step Korean skin care regimen, which is quite tedious to follow. 

Thank goodness for Althea Bare Essentials.  If you don't know what the specific steps and procedures to complete a good Korean skincare routine, you will love this products. Because this is just a 3-step regimen.  It fits my love for everything minimalist.   


MRS.WISE "BARE ESSENTIALS" EXPERIENCE:

Althea strips own to the bare essentials with this new skincare line in just 3 quick and easy steps -- cleansing, toning and moisturizing.  Althea Korea believes that all the other additional steps added to your routine are just that -- additional!


COUNTOUR CLEANSER


 

The main ingredient of this cleanser are Ice Plant and detoxifying Lemon Myrtle extract. I find it so soothing on the skin.  I love the micro capsules that burst upon contact with water. Over-all it gently cleanse, exfoliate and really detoxify my skin.  I

PRIMER WATER



This product boasts of being a hydrating toner and a primer in one. So it readies the skin for a whole day wear, or primes it for make-up application. Made with Snow Lotus extracts, I felt its effect on my skin in an instant -- smooth and silky texture without the sticky feeling. 

FIXER CREAM



The problem I had with moisturizers before, they leave a heavy, sticky feeling when applied. Especially at daytime, when I have to go out. But the Fixer Cream, heals the skin without the "yucky" experience.  It is because, this product is non-oily and quickly absorbed by the skin. It has Trehalose, an ingredient found in the cactus plant that prevents its moisture loss.  What's great... my skin felt great and bouncy to the touch for an entire 24-hours. Simply wow!
