Beauty Review: Althea Waterful Green Bamboo & Skin Relief Calming Cream

Hi there everyone! Remember the last time I introduced two products that could help you win against the extreme heat we are suffering from? Well, I have even greater news to unfold as I have two more products that can help you calm your skin and boost moisture while you are it!

It's no other than the much loved and praised Althea's Waterful Green Bamboo pads that helps to quickly boost the level of moisture in your skin and the Althea Skin Relief Calming Cream which moisturises while soothing your skin.

Allow me to introduce these products, I shall first begin with;

You can use this bamboo pads as a toner and/or a facial mask. I personally prefer to use this as a mask, although as of 3 days ago, I have been using it as a toner, since I do not own a toner in the first place.

To use it as a toner, all you'd have to do is to pull out a pad with the plastic mini tong that is provided, and gently wipe the pad on your face; starting from the middle and working your way outwards.

I realised that this bamboo pad helps to smooth my skin texture allowing it to become a flawless base for my makeup. Of course, it also keeps my skin well hydrated throughout the day. My face has been producing much lesser oil in comparison to before. 

Which is a great sign; that shows my skin is sufficiently hydrated.

To use it as a mask ,like how I'd prefer to, I will use 3 pads (like the above image) targeting all my dry areas. I will usually leave on the bamboo pads on my skin for 10 minutes, right after I get back from work, when it's midday and the heat is just atrocious. 

And despite the heat, my skin will always feels much supple and moisturised, right after. You know how Korean artists usually have that dewy skin? Yeap! That's exactly how my skin feels and looks like after the short moisture-reboost-session.

If you'd interested to know, this Althea Waterful Green Bamboo contains Bambusa Vulgaris extract as its key ingredient along with Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark extract and Centella Asiatica extract.

  • The bamboo extract helps with the deep hydration.
  • The Willow bark extract has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that helps to gently treat your mild-troubled skin.
  • The Centella Asiatica extract helps to treat and repair damaged skin while soothing it.

Do not worry, all the ingredients used to make this product are EWG grade; meaning that they are safe ingredients tested and chosen by American environment NGO.

One tub of the Waterful Green Bamboo comes with 80 sheets of pad and it costs RM54.00. I would say that it is a good deal as each pad relatively only costs about 70 cents.

Will I be re-purchasing this product? Of course, I will. My skin has already improved so much thanks to this product addition into my skin regime. Even my partner agrees with me.

Now, for this product, it actually took me by surprise mainly because of the cooling minty effect that it left on my skin.

So, this calming cream is meant to be used right after your toning. It has a watery-cream like texture (or I would say a lotion-like texture) that absorbs really quickly into the skin. Not only does it help to moisturise my skin but it also helps to repair damages and irritations caused by the high-polluted air around us.

I would say that this cream really helps to lock down the moisture beneath while creating a barrier-like protection from all the harmful particles.

This cream is a little more complex in terms of its composition as it has more than 5 key ingredients; which is the Eclipta Prostrata Leaf Extract, Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract, Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Ficus Carica Fruit Extract, shea butter, hydrogenated lecithin, chamomile water, seawater, and Panthenol. 

  • Panthenol is a special substance that transform into Vitamin B when absorbed into our skin, keeping it hydrated and soothed, while it strengthens our skin barrier function.
  • Seawater has anti-aging properties that helps our skin to have the radiant glow.
  • Shea butter and the hydrogenated lecithin is known to have rich hydrating properties that nourishes the skin and forms a protective moisture barrier.
  • The Chamomile water helps to soothe and improve moisture retention in the skin.
  • The extracts that were mentioned above is the key factor in strengthening our skin, overall.

I would highly recommended this product for those who are dealing with troubled skin. For me, personally, on the days, when I am having to deal with the rise of pimples, I would add to this skin relief calming cream in my skincare regime.

This Althea Skin Relief Calming Cream comes in a 80ml tube and it costs RM44.00. Since, I am only using this product when there are signs of pimples about to pop up, I can definitely say it is worth the purchase as it would probably take a much longer time for me to finish this product.

Will I repurchase this? Probably, especially when I need it to calm the irritations on my skin.

Alrighty then, till next post, make sure to keep yourself hydrated from inside out!
