I have a son and no daughter. And so they say when you have a son, you don’t have to worry about him that much in comparison to a daughter, especially when it comes to grooming. But then again, I don’t think gender matters much when it comes to self grooming. Whether it is a son or daughter you have, you ought to teach them to at least try to groom themselves well so that they have good grooming habit and takes good care of themselves.
My son is now a teenage boy, and puberty is kicking in and I thought it’s about time that I introduce him to some self grooming items. And so, we got this; a boxful of stuff from Althea, the world’s best place to get all your K-beauty and skincare needs.
Here’s the content of the box. Some grooming supplies.
What I got for the boy is pretty much basic and great for teenagers.
Oatmeal Therapy Cleansing Tissue.
Online reviews stated that this product is mainly used as a makeup remover wipe, but I was drawn to this product by the ingredients though.
This works like magic. It doesn’t sting or irritate his skin. Not only it cleansed very well but kept the skin moisturized as well. There were no chemical smell. Instead, it smell like something citrusy. Really pleasant to use and will definitely restock for myself to use as well.
Next is the 24K Gold Snail Soothing Gel from Royal Skin. They are also offering the Aloe Vera version of it, but what attracted me when I saw the product is the 24K Gold and Snail. Gold and snail mucin? Plus, it is a multi purpose soothing gel that can be used for the entire body. So I thought, hey, why not give this a try?
The 24K Gold Snail Soothing Gel from Royal Skin does not disappoint. It soothes skin irritations, especially after a long day under the sun. It really works wonder not only on the skin, but great as hair gel and hair mask as well. Trust me. It’s worth every single cent spent on this. Bonus? It smells really good too. Highly recommended. Great for both adult and teenagers. I initially bought this for my son to use but I keep stealing them to use for myself. Guess this will be on our restock list soon enough.
Aura Radiance BB Foundation Cream by Nella. My son needs some serious coverage for his acne.
I really wish we can get rid of his pimples but the stubborn stuff really just won’t go away, regardless of the products used. I guess it’s just hormone speaking and so, since we can’t really get rid of them all, why not try to at least cover them up a lil bit while trying to reduce the faint scars caused by acne? The least I can do for him is try to make the pimples less visible, so I got him this; Aura Radiance BB Foundation Cream by Nella. The Aura Radiance BB Foundation Cream by Nella is not too expensive and contains SPF 37.
Here’s the before picture where he haven’t applied the BB cream yet.
And here’s the after picture. I got to say that Aura Radiance BB Foundation Cream by Nella provided quite a good coverage. I guess, I approve this one too and this will be a permanent item for me to check on my next purchase.
Fleurissant Lip Glow by Glamfox is a sheer balm, colour changing by temperature that enhances your natural lip color while moisturizing and protecting lips with a really nice fruity scent.
Features clear jelly lipstick with real flower and 24k gold flakes. Isn’t it pretty? It is almost too beautiful to use.
All we need to do is just apply it on the lips like you’d do a normal lipstick or lipbalm.The product gives the lips a unique shade of pink based on temperature and PH of your lips. Warmer lips will have deeper colour therefore everyone has his or her own exclusive shades of pink lip colour. I really like this product. Not only it gives the lips natural, healthy looking colour but it helps to moisturized the lips as well.
Tony Moly Delight Lip Tint. I got this for myself, actually, and not for my son.
But I did not like the coverage and the result it gave me. The tint was hard to apply and drying on my lips and makes my lips flaky. I tought of just tossing it aside, but the boy wanted to try it out, and so I just let him test it out.
Nope. While the colour turns out quite okay, the tint is not for me and not for my son either. It’s too drying on our lips, but that’s probably just us, so don’t let us stop you from buying if you’d like to have a grab on this.
Our loot from Althea costs us about RM100. To be honest, the products that we got are quite friendly on the pocket and overall, I am satisfied with the order that I made. We love all the K-Beauty and Ski care products that we got from Althea,(Minus the Tony Moly tint, that is). Will definitely hunt for more stuff so that I can turn the boy into a Korean Oppa lookalike and myself a hotbabe Noona. That said, Althea is love. Althea, saranghae. Kamsahamida for all the lovely K-Beauty and Skincare items.
