UNBOXING MINI ALTHEA KOREA HAUL + IMPRESSIONS

How are you guys? So I’m back with another skincare/beauty review from Althea.kr. Well, it’s been long overdue, but I’m excited to share with you what I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time now. It’s been pretty rough days for me but I’m alright now, so nothing to worry about.

So I made a mini haul last August 2018 using my store credits for being a part of the Althea Angels and here are they.

Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop (35ml)
– This is my 2nd bottle already and I chose to repurchase this because I am loving the result. I have been using this constantly for months already for my dark spots and pimple marks and honestly, it really helps to brighten them. It is most effective when you used it with right amount on your skin, and also to make sure you are not wasting too much product just to see the result. I guess this is one of the Korean products that I am currently been obsessing about.

Banchic Oil Control Powder Mist (30ml)
– If you have an oily skin and also looking for a product that extends the wear of your makeup, I think this one is perfect for you. I also got this because I wanna try it as well and the item that I intend to get first was already sold out. So far I’m satisfied with this one. It really does removes the unnecessary oiliness and the powdery texture gives makeup a longer wear time. No doubt it freshens the skin by removing the excessive sebum.

CP-1 Raspberry Hair Vinegar (500ml)
– The first time I used this, I instantly loved it! No wonder why many are really raving about this one. I have an oily scalp and this product cleansed it and my hair was softer and cleaner after using. This hair vinegar doesn’t need dilution so it really saves your time.

Petal Velvet Powder #Pink Lavender (3g)
– If you like the first Althea Velvet Powder that has been released first, for sure you will love this too. But this one is a Limited Edition exclusively for the 3rd year anniversary of Althea.Kr. It doesn’t have so much difference from the first one, only the powder is in color pink and scent is lavender. Its job is still brightened and smoothen your skin with this special formula containing pink and purple pigments to liven up dull complexions. Its super fine particles help keep sebum at bay without drying out the skin for fresh, petal-like skin while its calming scent soothes the senses.

Airbnb Tour | Filamor Flats

The moment we step in Filamor Flats we instantly fell in love with the place. Like you know that feeling? Honestly, one of the best Airbnb homes we have ever stayed in and my words are not enough to recommend this place.

The 1st Room

It is located on the 9th Floor, Unit 912 of City Suites Ramos Tower, F. Ramos Street, Cebu City. The unit is exactly as shown in the photos, it’s beautiful. clean and ‘so me’ kind of style condo that has been gorgeously cared for and well decorated.

 

It really has all the comforts you want and the area is superb for discovering/exploring the city of Cebu. You read it right, the place is within the city so there’s no hassle for you to go to the malls and places you would love to go to. We were staying on the 9th floor of the building, so we really enjoyed the lovely view of the city. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And you know what, they offer free breakfast for 2!! How cool was that? Haha! You can claim and dine it at The Daily Grind, owned and managed as well by the super host, just centrally located near the unit.

The 2nd RoomIt’s not our first time to book with Mika, but this accommodation was just sooo extra. The other bed from the 2nd room was so big for me and my husband, and it’s really perfect for like 5-6 persons for the entire unit.

Living Area

Dining and Kitchen AreaI really wish we could stay longer for our staycation though but we have so many things to do. Hahaa. Definitely, we will come back.

BathroomMika is such an amazing host and again provided us with everything we needed. She’s been so generous and accommodating. Such a nice person to talked with and hanged out too. She also kept on checking us about our stay and that’s a real plus for us. Totally recommending this place! Just superb! We are not only enjoyed our stay in her unit but also enjoyed her company.

I Love Summer

Summer has always been my favorite season and for me, the best season in the entire world. I know some of you could relate and be that happier as much as I do when it comes around. A season that is more kinda laid back and get away yourself with all the hassle. The days are long, mornings are so early, sunsets are so magical and I feel much more energized. Rising temperatures and blue skies that I could take all my floral and printed dresses out and some straw hats to pair. This season make me feel like I need to be near the water, be far from the city and don’t get stuck in traffic. 

Everyone really looks better with some color and being outside, running around, swimming by the pool or by the beach! Haaa. Enjoy your summer guys!

Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Howdy lovelies? So, I’m back with another beauty product review from Althea.kr – the Petal Velvet Powder.  They recently launched their first brand product and I am just so excited to try it by myself.  Loose powder isn’t a new thing for me since I’ve been using it most of the time because I don’t want to go out with such an oily face.  But you know, I really wanted to achieve this dewy look and this powder from Althea.kr  is perfect for that! I also personally love its packaging!

Petal Velvet Powder is a loose powder with a silky finish made with pure, natural ingredients. Also made with micro-fine particles that minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines to reveal a flawless, petal-like complexion.  Its translucent and perfecting qualities also create a satin finish that mattifies without dehydrating the skin. It will also leave your skin velvety smooth and keeps your makeup all day!

Its main ingredients are Althea flower seed and Green Tea. This althea flower seed extract is full of antioxidants that protect the skin’s barrier from dehydration and invigorate the skin for a beautiful complexion. And for the green tea extract from Bosung, it contains vitamin A, vitamin B2 and Catechin that helps control sebum and brighten the skin, leaving you with clearer and more radiant skin.

What I love about this powder except of its lovely packaging? It truly gives you the results that they promise and the fact that it’s so affordable, smells so good, lightweight, doesn’t irritate my skin are such a plus things for me to purchase this again. The powder will last on your skin on an average of 3-4 hours when you are outside. But if you are just staying in your office or indoors it will stay around 5 hours in max.

You can buy Althea Petal Velvet Powder exclusively in Althea for Php210 or  US$4.50 which contains 3g. They ship in the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, and even in the United States.

Florals Azala , Just a day

How’s everyone doing? I’m having a boring but productive week so far, just the same ordinary days with my Romeo most of the time. As you could guess from my lack of posts,  I’m pretty busy with my current job online and some other stuff behind the screen life.WHAT I WORE: Dress: H&M | Bag:  FromBlank | Watch: John Taylor | Slides: AzalaPH

Anyway, there are few things that I couldn’t get enough with and two of those are florals and pastels! They are just a perfect compliment to every woman especially when it’s printed on clothing and how feminine you are wearing them.

If ever you have the chance to drop by on my instagram @iamelishabeth, you will surely notice that I obviously loved them. I am always on a search for nice floral dresses and I found one from H&M and I paired it with my fave slides lately from AzalaPH.

I guess that’s everything for today’s post. xoxo
