Review: Trying Out Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway in Dubai!

This post is really special to me because I'm combining two favourite things into one which is travelling and reviewing beauty products. Plus, Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway has been a total saviour during my work trip and here's the reason why.

Another sunscreen review!

The product was sent to me for review purposes as part of Althea AngelsI personally trying it out and the review is 100% my personal opinion. So, make sure to check the ingredients, consult a doctor or a healthcare practitioner before purchase to avoid any mishap. 😉 Btw, this post contains affiliate links make sure to check DISCLOSURE  for more info.

My first thought on Dubai was 'oh it's gonna be hot there' and it does BUT... only in the afternoon. So, it's a perfect time to test how much I'm going to love the sunscreen from Althea. Get the perimeter on!

 What is Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway? 

The sunscreen is the newest addition to the family of Petal Velvet line and the similarity between them is the micro-powder particles that give a smooth, petal-like complexion. Just like their name the sunscreen main ingredient is DAMASK ROSE.

For more information about the ingredients, visit SkinCarisma here.

I never heard of Damask Rose and it makes me thinking did I missing something? Well, obviously! The rose actually has a natural nanomolecular composition that is rich in vitamins to penetrate deep into the skin, sensitivities and strengthening it for a radiant glow. Now I'm getting excited to try because...
1. The acne started to grow the moment I step foot there.
2. Skin is getting sensitive as blemishes and redness started to show up.

 What makes it different from other products? 

I like to point THREE things about Althea sunscreen:-

Micro Powder Barrier: Contains microparticles that absorb serum and excess oil from the skin to give a light velvety finish. 

Hydrating, Fresh Formula: Aside controlling excess sebum on the skin with a micro powder system. The products ensures the skin kept hydrated throughout the day.

Advanced Non-Chemical UV Filter: Applies evenly and smoothly onto the skin without leaving a white cast behind. This is due to an advanced non-chemical UV filter with a more transparent formula.

I wonder wouldn't it leave a white cast at all?

How to use the sunscreen?

Just like a normal sunscreen, apply a generous layer as the last step of skincare. I must insist you to bring sunscreen everywhere you go because you have to reapply every 2-3 hours to avoid any sunburn!

Take note that the Sunaway is great for daily use and all skin types even with sensitive skin! So, don't forget to shake well, apply and wait for 15 minutes before going out~

6 days with Sunaway is a life saviour!

What do you think about the product?

Throughout 25 years, I have tried 6 sunscreens in total and this would be my second favourite. To be honest, this is my first time that encounters such a velvelty sunscreen because usually, it will be either too watery or oily.

This lead to my 6 days work trip to Dubai, even it was a hot scorching sun my face doesn't produce oil and they succeed in controlling the sebum. Clearly, I was afraid that it will let me down because I only brought Althea sunscreen there, no other options.

But, thank god it suits me and smooth out my skin. The only thing that turns me off is I have to shake it well before applying it. People might not agree with my opinion but I wanted something that I can grab and just put it on my face, like, quickly.

I can say that this is not my regular passport picture because you can see the difference on both sides.
Overall, it was a great week because the bottle is really small to bring along during a daily hotel inspection and socialising there. It doesn't feel heavy and this will be my go-to sunscreen for travel!

So, if you are an avid travel but still want to protect your skin from UV lights. Grab a Petal Velvet Sunaway Multipack (pack of three) or a la carte here
