ALTHEA BEAUTY BOX: SOOTHE OUR SKINS


Hello Altheans! Welcome back to my blog and I hope all is well with you. Today, I am going to review Althea’s twenty fourth (24th) beauty box called Soothe Our Skins (S.O.S).

But first, what is Althea Beauty Box? As I mentioned before on my previous Althea Beauty Box: Black and Red review, each box is limited edition and each one includes curated products specially picked by Althea Korea Team back in Seoul. The prices are as steal as all the items found in the beauty boxes are in full size products. Every Althea Beauty Box can hold anywhere from 6-12 full-size items depending on the theme and value. Read more here.

Now, I have their S.O.S (Soothe Our Skins) beauty box that has nine products in it, five are full-size and the other four are good for one use only. This beauty box is about skin care and all the products inside are specially selected for sensitive skin. Sadly, the box is already “out of stock” but if you are looking for a good skincare product that will help your skin condition, the items below will surely help you. You can buy it separately if you really want to try.


TONY MOLY – THE CHOK CHOK NO WASH GREEN TEA CLEANSING WATER

This 300ML cleanser is infused with 100% pure fermented green tea extracts that has the ability to remove skin impurities and provide gentle hydration. It is dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin. By the way, the CHOK CHOK word means “MOIST” in Korea.

What I like about this cleanser is it has green tea extract that has a lot of benefits to our skin like anti-aging and anti-oxidant that can delay skin aging, sun damage, age spots, fine lines or even wrinkles. I also like the scent because it’s so refreshing and it didn’t irritate my skin at all. Actually, my skin loves this cleanser already.


REAL SKIN – HEALTHY VINEGAR SKIN TONER

This toner has fermented rice extract that will be able to nourish and soothes irritated skin. It has PH 5.5 acidity to balance skin, it can tighten pores and exfoliates skin, and it contains vitamins, minerals and moisturizing ingredients.

This Healthy Vinegar Skin Toner is very gentle to the skin. It didn’t give me any sting sensation like what I got from the other toner. And actually, when I saw the word VINEGAR I really thought that the toner will smell like “vinegar” (hahahahaha) but no it’s not, because the scent is so calming. It’s also non-drying and makes my skin soft after use.

  
ETUDE HOUSE – SWEET PUDDING TONE UP CREAM MOISTURE

This moisturizing tone-up cream will make your skin looks clear and bright by restoring skin’s oil and moisture balance with moisture-rich formula. It has Chia Seed, Centella, Hottuynia Cordata that are known for soothing benefit and Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter and Strawberry that contains moisturizing properties.



The consistency of the cream is dense (not watery) and white but it’s not hard to spread it all over the face and neck. I tried to put the cream overnight and when I woke up I noticed that it slightly helped even out my skin tone (it’s my first day to try it so the changes is not that drastic) and my skin is glowing and plump too. This cream can also be used as your makeup primer for a long wearing.


MAMONDE – AC BALANCE SPOT PATCH

It is a transparent film-type spot patch that covers and soothes breakouts on the skin all day. It is infused with Salicylic Acid which is known for treating acne by helping it to remove the outer layer of the damaged skin and Willowherbs Extract that soothes skin irritations.



What I like about this patch is it will immediately camouflage to your skin while the adhesive is very strong that even you put moisturizer before putting it, the patch will still stick onto your skin, unlike other brand that I used before it’s not effective when putting moisturizer first. The effectiveness of this spot patch is great. It did lessen the redness and bumps of my acne by sucking up the excess oil in just one night.


INNIFREE – REAL MASK PEPPERMINT

Calm your skin with this clay mask that contains refreshing peppermint ingredients for a soothing effect and deep cleansing. It helps hydrates the skin and control excess sebum production.



So far, this is my top favorite clay mask among the mask I’ve tried. Because it reduced my skin’s problem (acne and red spots) and my sebum production by its deep cleansing ability that leave my face fresh and clear.  And, it’s gentle on the skin plus the soothing effect and the mint scent is very relaxing.


SKIN FOOD – FRESH APPLE COOLING GEL

This gel contains one hundred percent fresh apple extract that can revitalize, cool down and hydrates irritated or dry out skin. It is a lightweight gel that can be easily absorbed by the skin and it has a refreshing fragrance that is so addicting. It can also be used as a body lotion or even for treating your damaged hair (for the hair just mix it with oil).


It’s very similar to an Aloe Vera gel because of the look, the cooling effect and ability to moisturize the skin. However, the Fresh Apple Cooling Gel is not that sticky because the consistency is watery that can be easily absorbed unlike the very popular Aloe Vera which is very sticky specially when dried out on the skin.


HANYUL – PURE ARTEMISIA WATERY CALMING SHEET MASK

This sheet mask is infused with Baby Mugwort that can calm the redness on the skin. Mugwort is also known for treating acne and its rich with Vitamin E which has a lot of benefits to our skin.


The sheet is made of cotton fiber (this is not your ordinary face mask) which makes it easy to put on the skin.


PURE SMILE – CHOOSY LIP PACK WHITE PEARL + PURPLE PEARL

Choosy Lip Pack is enriched with vitamins that moisturizes, nourish and repairs dry cracked lips overnight. It is infused with Grape Extract and Cactus Flower Extract that will prevent your lips from drying while the Shea Butter and Moisture Oil will make your lips revitalized.


The pack is like a jelly ace formed similar to lips (big lips) and it’s very delicate to hold because it’s slippery. Though, I like the “holographic” color when the light strikes on it (cute). I am not sure how long will I put the pack on my lips but I tried it for thirty minutes and guess what? It made my lips pinkish; it reduced the tiny bumps around my lips and made it extremely supple. I think if I will use this regularly (as prescribed) I no longer need lipstick to make my lips attractive.




I used all the products above for about two weeks to try if it will lessen my skin problems (acne and red spots) and I am happy to say that it did really improve my skin’s appearance. From dull, uneven and oily skin to bright, supple and clear face. I actually made this my official #SKINCARE because it is effective to me.
