Me too always believe in good skincare for my daily must-do beauty regime to look fresh and slowing down the ageing process to my skin. The 7 and 10 steps skincare routines, once really famous around the globe. But how many of us really have time to follow all the steps. These days many of us are busy with our roles as employee, motherhood, wife, or multitasking for all roles. By the time we have that 'Me' moment....we are almost at 'drop dead tired' to even look like 'drop dead gorgeous'. Sometimes such complicated skincare routines can easily tired your skin.
In these modern days, I would say we need to simplify our skincare routines to achieve a similar outcome to our precious skin. Recently, Althea the famous online Korean Beauty store launched their very own skincare range call Bare Essentials. Althea answered all women prayers! Bare Essential was created to simplified the skincare routines and yet gives one optimal and comfortable result with only 3 simple steps. Yeayyyyy!!!!
If you have been following my instagram at Cindyreena and FB , you would know about my recent gossip girl's role. A box of Althea latest skincare range reached me with a style.

My experience using Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser
I just lather up the cleanser until it becomes a rich foam before apply and gently exfoliate onto my skin in circular motions.

My experience using Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water
When I first received this bottle, I was so confused about whether this is a primer or just usual toner.
The liquid is rather thick but non-sticky at all. It absorbs well into the skin with just a gentle patting. You don't have to wait a long time to preps your skin with this Primer Water. This is kind of feel slightly balm-like too. The snow lotus as an ingredient helps to smoothens and brightens the skin and the patented "dewdrop" formulation totally revitalizes the skin and provides immediate effective moisture. I could feel the instant plump up when the water from this wonderful bottle penetrates into my skin.

My experience using Althea Bare Essentials Fixer Cream
I was a bit sceptical since I have been trying out much skincare before this. Most of the cream claimed the same but at the end, it doesn't deliver as its claimed at all. Another marketing gimmick? The texture of this cream is non-greasy at all. Thanks to that. But once I applied the fixer cream onto my skin. mmmm...surprisingly it absorbs well and I can feel immediate plumping up and hydration effects. Wow!!!! The ingredients for this Fixer Cream works and blend well for optimum skin benefit. The Trehalose gives powerful humectant that retains moisture on the skin, While the green tea helps to hydrates, skin smoothing and pack with antioxidants. Non-greasy moisturizing agents that helps promote collagen production which gives 24 hours hydration.
Tadahhhhh.... my bare face after using 3 Steps Althea Bare Essentials skincare. I can feel better-looking skin and feel fresh.
