We all know the importance of proper skincare routine and how crucial it is to provide our skin with the necessary nutrients that it needed. Hence, we have products ranging from toner to eye cream, serum and many more. But, are we actually slapping on too much products for our skin to handle? Don't you with to cut down the routine duration yet still able to achieve your desired results? If so, you are in luck!

Introducing the brand new skincare from Altea - Bare Essentials.

Bare Essentials is a 3-step skincare that presents only necessary skincare routines for healthy looking, glowy skin, and featuring micro-particles that quickly absorb into the skin without irritation. The products are infused with nourishing and hydrating ingredients from nature to keep your skin at its most optimal and comfortable state, at a reasonable price.

Let's take a look at these 3 simple steps!

Step 1: Contour Cleanser (RM 23 | 150g)

The Contour Cleanser is a rich ad foaming cleanser that removes impurities while improving blood circulation for that V-shaped look. The cleanser contains micro capsules that pop with water to gently but effectively exfoliate and remove impurities from the skin. I like the minimalist white packaging of the cleanser tube.

The cleanser contains 2 key ingredients:

Ice Plant - Hydrates and calms redness
Lemon Myrtle - Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidant to strengthen the skin

How to Use:
1. Dampen the skin, the squeeze out a small amount.
2. Lather onto face, massage in circular motions.
3. Rinse off with water after.

The cleanser has a creamy texture while the micro capsules are very gentle and not abrasive at all. In fact, they melt away in seconds the moment I start to massage onto my face. Despite being a foaming cleanser, it doesn't foam as must but a small pea size is enough to cleanse my face. The best part is, it doesn't dry out my skin! Also, I love the mild lemony scent and cooling sensation from the cleanser after cleansing my face. It is very refreshing, especially in the morning!

2. Prime Water (RM 43 | 200ml)

A 2-in-1 toner and primer that penetrates into the layers of the skin to plump up while prepping your skin at the same time, making it a smooth canvas for products to come.

2 key ingredients of the Primer Water:

Snow Lotus - Smoothens and brightens the skin while evening out its texture.
Patented "dewdrop" Formulation - Revitalizes the skin and provides immediate, effective moisture

How to Use:
1. Pour a small amount and apply evenly onto the face.
2. Gently patting in for better absorption.

Staying true to their minimalist design, the Primer Water comes in a semi-hard plastic bottle with a silver cap. It has an almost balm-like texture but slightly on the runny side, which I find to be "user friendly" as it doesn't drip everywhere and easy to control the amount whenever I pour it out from the bottle. The Primer Water is another favourite of mine from the Bare Essentials range. It's non-sticky, non-greasy, and my face feels soft and smooth whenever I use this. Also, it is lightweight and absorb easily into the skin.

3. Fixer Cream (RM 50 | 50g)

Step 3 is the Fixer Cream. Powerful moisturizing properties are said to pack into this little jar that provides the skin with hydration for up to 24 hours for a fresh, revitalized complexion. It can penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to plump them up.

Key ingredients of Fixer Cream:

Trehalose - Powerful humectant that retains moisture on the skin
Wild Green Tea - Hydrating, skin soothing and pack with antioxidants
Baobab Tree Extract - Non-greasy moisturizing agent that helps promote collagen production

How to Use:
- Apply evenly onto the face and gently pat in till absorbed.

Before I talk about the cream itself, I just want to say... it is SO HARD to open the jar at first! It took me quite a while to open it and a word of advice, don't screw it close too tight. The Fixer Cream has a gel-like texture which is non-heavy and has a non-sticky finish once absorbed. However, if you have oily-skin or oily-combination skin, you would probably want to use it during the night and apply a thin layer for starter to test out the amount that your skin actually need.

Overall, I really like the Bare Essentials range especially the Contour Cleanser and Primer Water. One thing for sure, I'm definitely adding these 2 into my skincare routine. With nourishing ingredients and easy execution, this 3-product regime breaks down and simplifies the beauty routine for the urban woman. You can find all 3 products on Althea Website at RM 116 only!
