The Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist is Althea's first ever celebrity collaboration and it is with a famous Indonesian celebrity - Titi Kamal! Titi Kamal is an actress and singer from Indonesia with beautiful luxurious long black hair, and also known for her sense for fashion and style. Honestly, I was very surprise that Althea is now offering body mist, but am curious at the same time too.

So, let's take a look at the Althea x Titi Kamal Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist.

The Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist is a sparkling mix of sweet orange and peach, followed by an ever-graceful for a long-lasting scent. It also has a non-sticky formula that feels comfortable on the skin, and it embodies the elegance and beauty of Titi in a bottle, perfect for the urban femme.

Some of the main ingredients in the body mist are:

Damask Rose Water - Keeps the skin hydrated and gives a gentle fragrance.
Orange Flower Extract - Refreshes the senses.
Elder Flower Extract - Cools and soothes the skin, while giving out a feminine scent.

Application of the body mist is really easy - spray it on the body just like you would with a perfume! However, I would recommend starting off lightly in order to test out the scent., as you wouldn't want to overwhelm yourself and others with strong floral notes.

The Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist feels very light-weighted and non-sticky. Also, I notice the floral note tends to fade off after a while, leaving an almost candy-like sweet scent. Personally, I'm not a fan of floral or sweet scent. So, I only sprayed in on very lightly onto my skin.

The Althea x Titi Kamal Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist is available on Althea Website at a retail price of RM 35(100ml). If you would like to know more updates about Althea, do follow their Facebook and Instagram too.


Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser

Many people might get confused when first heard of the product, especially with the name "serum cleanser". Is it a micellar cleanser or a serum? It is actually BOTH! The Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is both a cleanser and a serum. Still confuse? Scroll down to read further.

The Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser has the combined powers of a cleanser and serum. It whisks away makeup, dirt and oil while ensuring the skin stays  cool and hydrated throughout thanks to a dual moisture cell system that envelopes the skin in a serum-like formula. It prevents the skin from drying out and effectively minimizes enlarged pores, keeping it smooth to the touch. The cleanser also helps to balance the pH levels of the skin to keep it working in tip-top shape.

The packaging is very simple and I like the idea of transparent plastic bottle, so I could see the content in it.

The key ingredients of the cleanser are:

Mint Leaf Extract - Cooling effect that lowers the skin's temperature and calm blemishes, antibacterial properties to keep the skin healthy and soothe inflammation caused by acne, and removes dirt and dead skin cells effectively plus minimizing enlarged pores.

Jojoba Seed Oils - It has similar structures to natural skin, allowing effective makeup removal and purification of pores. Also, deep moisturizes the skin without feeling heavy.

Tea Tree Leaf Extract - Has antibacterial properties that purify the skin.

There are 2 ways of using the Althea's Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser:

Daily Cleansing
1. Damped the skin and apply a small amount of cleanser onto it.
2. Gently massage in circular motions for 5-10 seconds before rinsing it off with water.
3. Alternatively, you can damped a cotton pad with the cleanser and cleanse your face with it.

To Remove Makeup
1. Pout an adequate amount of the product.
2. Massage the cleanser onto the skin in circular motion to remove dirt and makeup.
3. Rinse off with water.
4. If needed, continue with a second cleanse to remove residue completely.

The first thing I noticed is its watery consistency, and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin. Also, it has a refreshing scent which I personally find it to be quite soothing. My daily makeup is very light and the serum cleanser works very well in taking off my makeup. On the other hand, it wasn't very effective on my water-proof mascara. The other plus point is it doesn't dry out my skin but my skin feels fresh and light after that.

Regardless if you are wearing light or heavy makeup, it is very important to double cleanse. If you are looking for a decent facial cleanser, I would say the Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is worth a try.

The Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is recommended for:
1. Skin that is sensitive to oil-based products
2. Sensitive skin that needs a mild cleanser
3. Quick and effective cleansing solution
4. Those who need moisturizing cleanser for daily beauty regime

The Althea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is priced at RM 33 (150ml) and you can purchase it on Althea official website.
