Althea Christmas Wish List - 10 K-beauty products recommendation

Saturday 15 December 2018

Do you have all the presents for the family? But hey, you did a great job choosing all these great gifts and you will do a great job with preparing all the Christmas dishes and decorations. You did a lot so why don't you give yourself or I should rather say your skin a small skincare gift. If you didn't get all the presents then this post is also a chance for you to get all the shopping done. Here's a master list of 10 products which you can find on Althea that will make your Christmas better a.k.a. Althea Christmas Wish List.

10. It's Skin Power 10 Formula Propolis 

2018 is totally a year of a propolis, I tried many ampoules and even if It's Skin is not my favourite serum still I think this serum is a strong player - it's available all around the world, it's affordable, it works and the amount of the product is good.

9. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum

A cult Green Tea Seed Serum must be here! You can love it or hate it but still, it's the most selling Innisfree product so if people keep buying it then something about it must be amazing. I can tell you that this serum smells nice, works well on acne-prone skin and it's a very delicate product so if you haven't tried it - try it ASAP!

8. Dr Jart + Dermask Shaking Rubber Hydro Shot

A.k.a "that creepy Korean mask" - or cute, since some people think the packaging is cute. Dr Jart+ should win a medal for creative packaging and making huge steps ahead of other brands. Even if rubber masks existed before rubber shots came out still Dr Jart+ made it popular in Europe and probably the US as well. This mask helped me with my skin when it got dried and the skincare after this mask didn't get evaporated from the surface of the skin quickly but it really sealed my skin - I guess no one will understand what I'm talking about but what I mean is that hydration stayed longer.

7. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (Apple Lime)

I do not use lip balms but I always have Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask with me, especially the Apple Lime version. It's a sleeping mask which you leave on your lips overnight and when you wake up your lips are ready for some tints and matte lipsticks that usually make your lips very dry. I use this mask under the makeup at school but also during the winter instead of a lip balm since the formula is stronger than lip balms.

6. Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon 

Even if Christmas is all about tangerines - at least in Poland, still we need to make some space for lemons. Neogen is one of my favourite brands and you can clearly see it on this blog but what's amazing about this peeling? Pads are really comfortable and delicate + if you wear black skinny pants then they are the best to remove dark marks from the dye that's left on your skin after a bath.

5. Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Green Tea

You can't go wrong with Green Tea, especially Green Tea Mask or Cleanser. But what does this product do? It's a 10-second mask & cleanser in one product, it saves your time and skin. I made a post about it before - you have to check it. The rose version is nice as well but Green Tea won my combo skin & skincare heart.

4. Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream

Finding an ideal eye cream is hard but Innisfree just nailed it! Do you know that eye cream is a must? The skin around the eye is more sensitive and it tends to show signs of aging first that's why we need a special cream. This cream won't only prevent your skin from early aging but it'll also moisturize the skin and make it stronger.

3. Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner

The best toner I've tried this year and one of the most stolen photos of product I've ever taken. Yes, thanks to Klairs toner I got lots of views because the texture is to die for - it's not like water but more like a water jelly full of moisture and calming ingredients. It smells a bit like plastic but after some time the scent doesn't matter - it starts to smell like nothing and I kinda like it. This product is made for sensitive skin so no matter what skin type you've got you should like it anyway.

2. Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway

I thought for a long time that I won't find an ideal sunscreen and sorry Klairs but Althea nailed this sunscreen game! Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway is a delicate sunscreen that looks like a milk and doesn't leave any smudges on the skin - can you imagine anything better? I would recommend it especially for an oily skin because this sunscreen acts a bit like a primer - it leaves an oil-free protective layer on your skin that makes your makeup last longer. The only reason why I didn't put it on number 1 is the scent which at first seemed to be very harsh for me.

1. April Skin Black Magic Snow Cushion 2.0

April Skin Black Magic Snow Cushion was the first cushion I've tried and it completely changed my makeup game. Can you believe that this cushion is so good that even during my makeup classes girls were surprised how well it matches my skin and how good it covers the acne and pigmentation without making the skin look like a mask? The velvet finishing and pocket size is all I need as a student - I can take it with me whenever I go and be sure that my skin looks flawless.

That's my Althea Christmas Wishlist and recommendations. Althea is a K-beauty store full of interesting brands, they also have their own line of skincare which is very affordable. Tell me which of the products would you try and do you have any Christmas recommendation?
