I’ve been a suki since 2016 when I purchased my first favorite primer – the Elizavecca Skin Liar Primer. And just recently, Althea celebrated their 5th birthday!

Hey there, fellow K-beauty enthusiasts! For today’s K-beauty Wednesdays, I’ll be sharing with you one of Althea’s newest products! Althea’s been on a roll these past few weeks and I can barely breathe, gurrrrl! The thing is, there’s more to come, so hold tight as we welcome 2019!

Before I get started, how’s your holiday going so far? How did you celebrate Christmas? I had a wonderful time with my family, but I’ve been down with a cold since yesterday, so that sucks. I’m back to work now, too. Who’s with me?! 🙋‍♀️

A new Althea box arrived a couple of weeks ago and it contained two of their newest releases.

One is their first ever collaboration with a celebrity and it’s called Titi Kamal x Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist. The other one is their serum cleanser, which is featured in today’s blog.


Last month, Althea made their followers guess what their upcoming product was.

You need to add MUGWORT in your skin care routine! | I’M FROM MUGWORT MASK + ESSENCE | #RIXreviews

According to the page WebMD, mugwort is a plant that grows in Asia, North America, and Northern Europe. The plant parts that grow above the ground and the root are used to make medicine.

People take mugwort root as a “tonic” and to boost energy.

People take the rest of the plant for stomach and intestinal conditions including colicdiarrheaconstipationcramps, weak digestion, worm infestations, and persistent vomiting. Mugwort is also used to stimulate gastric juice and bile secretion. It is also used as a liver tonic; to promote circulation; and as a sedative. Other uses include treatment of hysteria, epilepsy, and convulsions in children.

Women take mugwort for 
irregular periods and other menstrual problems.

In combination with other ingredients, mugwort root is used for mental problems (psychoneuroses), ongoing 
fatigue and depression (neurasthenia), depression, preoccupation with illness (hypochondria), general irritability, restlessness, trouble sleeping (insomnia), and anxiety.

Some people apply mugwort lotion directly to the 
skin to relieve itchiness caused by burn scars.

Love your skin. Moisturize! | RIXREVIEWS: HERA Cell-Bio Trial Kit II | GABISTAR PH

For years, I was led to believe that moisturizers were a major no-no for someone who had oily skin such as me.

This turned out to be a huge mistake since all skin types need proper amount of moisture and hydration in order for the skin to work properly.

I’ve learned that our skin produces more oil if it’s too dry. So it’s not really good when it feels squeaky clean. Continue reading “Love your skin. Moisturize! | RIXREVIEWS: HERA Cell-Bio Trial Kit II | GABISTAR PH”
