Here’s something new from Althea… the Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask (₱490). It’s a gentle peeling mask with milk, AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid). It’s suitable for combination skin that needs gentle exfoliation and hydration. I love love masks and I make it a point to use them as needed. So when I felt my skin was getting kind of dull, I decided to try Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask.
Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask comes in a 50ml bottle. It’s supposed to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores while moisturizing skin with casein, the predominant protein found in milk.
You dispense the product via a pump dispenser so it’s very hygienic.
Using it is easy… just pump out the product and apply onto clean skin in a thin layer. The initial texture and consistency is clay-like.
Let it stand for 30-60 seconds. The mask will turn into this bubbly foam. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Having used this mask a couple of times, I’ve determined that I can’t leave it on longer than the prescribed 30-60 seconds. I made the mistake of leaving it on for more than a minute and my face started to sting a bit plus it was kind of dry when I rinsed off.
Used correctly, the mask exfoliates, refreshes, and moisturizes skin. My skin felt incredibly smooth and clean right after.
What I like about the Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask:
- It takes so little time to get great results! Most masks require at least 10 minutes of waiting time. With this one, you’re done in a minute.
- It really does get rid of dead surface skin. Like I said, my skin is incredibly smooth after use. It’s brighter too.
- I love the mild milky scent! It’s kind of like baby powder and milk, reminiscent of cute babies.
- It’s reasonably priced at ₱490
Downside? Umm… the usage instructions are kind of inaccurate? I’ve used a variety of bubble masks before and you’re not supposed to “massage into a lather”. You apply a thin layer onto the face, in a massaging motion if you prefer, and then wait for it to turn into bubbly foam before rinsing off.
