Althea Petal Velvet Powder Review

I got the Althea Petal Velvet Powder in #0 Translucent when I ordered an Althea Wonder Mystery Box. I’ve been curious about this for a while now since I’ve been seeing great reviews. That and well, it’s super cheap at ₱210. Could such an inexpensive powder really be that good? At last, I was going to be able to try and see for myself.

Althea Wonder Mystery BoxThe Althea Petal Velvet Powder promises to set makeup, control oil, and minimize the appearance of pores. It’s a pretty tall order to fill.

Althea Petal Velvet PowderThe shade #0 Translucent is white. There are 2 more shades — #23 Warm Beige and #Pink Lavender.

Althea Petal Velvet PowderThe powder is extremely fine. There is also a mild, pleasant scent.

Althea Petal Velvet PowderWhen you blend it onto the skin, it completely disappears. It leaves the skin surface soft, smooth, and matte.

Althea Petal Velvet PowderI tried using it as a setting powder and it’s surprisingly good. It really is translucent and there doesn’t seem to be any white cast.

What I like about the Althea Petal Velvet Powder:

  • It’s super fine and blends nicely into the skin.
  • It was able to fulfill everything it promised — makeup setting, oil control, and pore minimizing.
  • It’s cheap at ₱210.
  • I like the mild, fresh scent.
  • It brightens skin.

Downside? Silicone is one of its main ingredients and silicone can potentially clog pores. I think thorough cleansing and removal can counter this though. I’ve used this powder several times already and so far no breakouts.

You can purchase Althea products at the Althea Korea Official Store on Lazada.
