REVIEW: Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Althea, the leading online store that caters most of our k-beauty needs, finally comes up with its own brand product. Starting off strong, they are introducing the Althea Petal Velvet Powder. According to Althea, this debuting beauty is made with micro-fine particles that minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines to reveal a flawless and petal-like complexion. Its translucent and perfecting qualities also create a satin finish that mattifies without dehydrating the skin. To be honest, I am not a loose powder user until this one. Ingredients: SILICA, MICA, VINYL DIMETHICONE/METHICONE SILSESQUIOXANE CROSSPOLYMER, DIMETHICONE/VINYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, METHICONE, HIBISCUS SYRIACUS SEED EXTRACT, HYDROGENATED LECITHIN, 1,2-HEXANEDIOL, GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE, MALTODEXTRIN, FRAGRANCE

Size: 3g

Types: All skin types

Color: Translucent

Application: Pick up product with a brush or puff provided and gently sweep onto the skin.

What I like:

  • It’s lightweight and travel-wise.
  • Made from natural ingredients.
  • Just like its name, Althea, it smells like a fresh flower but is very gentle to those who have a sensitive nose.
  • Its staying power is amazing. Mine lasted the entire day so I really didn’t have to reapply.
  • It makes my skin looks bright and smooth.
  • The powder is finely milled and is velvety.
  • No breakouts, allergies or irritations.
  • Doesn’t create unpleasant white cast especially during flash photography.
  • It comes with a super soft puff. You can use a brush, though, depends on where you are comfortable.

What I don’t like:

  • It’s only 3G, too small for an everyday use.
  • It’s only available online.

Will I repurchase? Definitely, YES! I don’t wear makeup every day but using this powder to set my day cream and sunscreen is super amazing.  It’s only 210 php, around $4. You just have to ditch the right amount of powder to use and it will go a long way. Highly recommend to those who love using loose powder.

Have you tried Althea Velvet Powder already? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. I have never hear of this make up brand before. Your photos make it look so big! I can definitely use all the help I can get to hide my pores though. That price is super affordable too.

  2. That powder really does sound velvety. I wear powder even when I don’t wear foundation so I might have to try it. I love that it’s all natural.

  3. Love the name and the minimalistic branding. I haven’t tried it but I would love to!

  4. im nit very familiar with the brand and im quite scared to try new ones as i have sensitive skin but good to know that it is from natural ingredients so thats a good start

  5. I have never hear about this powder and brand. You look beautiful in the images. Thanks for sharing this review.

  6. I love the packaging. Also, it’s lightweight and can be carried around easily. Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll look into this product.

  7. I love this review. My women group were just discussion products that help minimize the look of fine lines and give us a flawless look. I’m sharing this with the group. Althea is worth trying out.

  8. Pretty product. The pros you mention make it sound like a good purchase. I don’t really wear loose powder, or any makeup really. But I like that it’s light and it lasts. Great review!

  9. I love that there are no breakouts. I always use powder to minimize pores and have to be very careful about my skin reacting. I should give this brand a try.

    Looks and sounds like an amazing product. It’s not a bad price either, I may have to just order some! I really like that it’s all natural and won’t affect my skin with irritation.

  11. It definitely has a nice name. I don’t really use powders, but I’ve been needing something to reduce shine and make my skin look nice for my HealthyPlace videos. Thanks for the recommendation.

  12. Been reading good reviews about this powder. I think I’ll have to try when my loose powder runs out.

  13. Actually kahit maliit lang sya matipid sya gamitin. Siguro naka twice lang ako na retouch maghapon oks na oks padin sya sa face ko.

  14. Thanks for the review nakikita ko na itong althea velvet powder sa mga beauty bloggers at palagay ko nga maganda talaga sya sa pinay skin
