Happy New Year, peeps! I hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve with your family and special one. 2018 was a challenging year for me and I hope I can be strong enough to face another challenging year of 2019 – The year of the Boar (according to Chinese horoscope). There are some reasons for my hiatus last year but I hope I can post as often as I can – whenever I have that free time to do so, probably during weekends and public holidays.
I actually reviewed this product about 2 years ago, and this has been one of my favourite setting powders because of 3 reasons:
- It feels really great on my skin, and it does not clogged my pores.
- It makes my skin velvety – smooth and soft.
- The price is totally affordable!
For those who haven’t read my previous post about their first ever released of Althea’s Petal Velvet Powder, you might want to read it here – My Make-Up Lasts Longer with ALTHEA Petal Velvet Powder. But, wait! There are 2 newest additions to the family!
- Althea’s Petal Velvet Powder 3g #Translucent – First one.
- Althea’s Petal Velvet Powder 3g #23 Warm Beige – New addition.
- Althea’s Petal Velvet Powder 3g #Pink Lavender – Limited Edition.
For those who are not familiar with this product, Althea’s Petals Velvet Powder has Althea extracts which combats aging process by lifting and firming the skin as well as enhances our skin’s ability to retain moisture so that our skin can maintain its youthfulness.
Althea’s very own product range is here, and we’re starting off strong with the Petal Velvet Powder! This debuting beauty is a translucent powder that sets makeup and leaves behind a silky finish to the touch. Infused with oil from Althea seeds, this powder works to keep sebum production at bay without drying out the skin for a radiant, fresh look, all while giving out a gentle scent. Keep your makeup looking great all day or dust some on to stay shine-free! – ALTHEA.KR
I have to agree that this product which claims to give a soft and smooth appearance because the extracts in this product balances the production of sebum and purify our skin by breaking down dead skin while increasing cell turnover. It brings back the balance to our skin so that we can enjoy a gorgeous, glowing, even skin-tone, and smooth complexion. What’s more? Althea’s Petal Velvet Powder can be used on other bodily parts with active sebum production such as scalp and armpit.
Since it comes in a small slab of loose powder, it means you only need to use it sparingly. I usually use the #Translucent and #23 Warm Beige for contouring. I love this powder because it gives a more natural, dewy, and fresh look. #Pink Lavender, on the other hand, is used as blusher because it does leave a natural blush-and-healthy look which I really love.
I love this loose powder because of its lightweight texture and it does not clog my pores, too. Moreover, ALTHEA Petal Velvet Powder has micro-fine particles with soft and smooth texture. While it does not clogged the pores, it is actually good at blurring the pores and controls the sebum production so make-up can last longer. This non-comedogenic loose powder contains natural and cruelty-free ingredients which is inspired from Althea flower petals.

My Final Verdict
Althea’s Petal Velvet Powder has never failed me. The 2 latest additions do not leave my skin with breakouts or even dryness. I just love the texture and how it makes my skin matte and glowing at the same time. It is recommended to use brush because it only requires small amount especially the #Translucent. If you have dry skin, I would recommend you to buy this. What’s more? This is a perfect gift especially those who are on budget. This is one of my favourite setting powders from Korea!
