B-Lab I Am Sorry Just Cleansing, Cleansing Water

Update 17th June 2019: Prices have been revised for these products. Scroll down to see changes.

*Disclaimer: None of the links in this review is an affiliate link. I am an Althea brand ambassador but I am NOT paid to write this review or test the product. The product was something purchased with free Althea store credit.

B-Lab is a Korean cosmetics brand whose sole purpose is to create cleansing products hence their entire line is only made up of, well, cleansers. With very simple, no fluff packaging they focus on good quality natural ingredients and effective cleansing methods.

I got the smaller one to test but because Althea was so generous to give me store credit, I went for the large 500ml one. It is a simple squeeze bottle and the black cap can screw all the way off so one could definitely reuse the bottle for something else.

Ingredient list is in Korean so I did have to refer to Althea and Google translate for information.

Description: Cleansing water that comes in 100 ml and 500 ml bottles.

Ingredients: ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF EXTRACT ,GLYCERIN, MALVA SYLVESTRIS (MALLOW) EXTRACT, MENTHA PIPERITA (PEPPERMINT) LEAF EXTRACT, PRIMULA VERIS EXTRACT, ALCHEMILLA VULGARIS EXTRACT, VERONICA OFFICINALIS EXTRACT, MELISSA OFFICINALIS LEAF EXTRACT, ACHILLEA MILLEFOLIUM EXTRACT, LAVANDULA ANGUSTIFOLIA (LAVENDER) EXTRACT, MONARDA DIDYMA LEAF EXTRACT, FREESIA REFRACTA EXTRACT, ANTHEMIS NOBILIS FLOWER EXTRACT, ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS (ROSEMARY) LEAF EXTRACT, ALLANTOIN, DISODIUM EDTA, PROPYLENE GLYCOL, XYLITOL, MALTITOL, CITRIC ACID, CETRIMONIUM BROMIDE

Swatch test

From left to right, hard to remove liquid lip, blue liquid liner, concealer, tough to remove waterproof mascara, three pigmented eyeshadows.

Pretty good, considering, that mascara is the devil’s spawn and that liquid lipstick belongs on the Sahara desert because it dries out the lips like none I’ve tried!

Pros:

Light on the skin.

Very effective at removing makeup.

Skin feels refreshed after using.

Love the reusable bottle!

Very natural ingredients!

Cons:

Tiny bit of sticky feeling after use.

Does burn my eyes but it isn’t as bad as some others.

VERY bitter! DO NOT recommend using this on the lips!

Rating: 8/10

The price is not too bad for the amount of product and it performs pretty well but I’d look to the drugstores for my tried and tested.

Althea Milk Peel Cream Mask Review

Althea has been releasing product after product and another edition to it is this new Milk Peel Cream Mask!

This product was sent to me but opinions are all mine.

Outer packaging.

Description is all in Korean. But Althea Malaysia is working on pasting a translation on the back.

The bottle.

Attach a pump to any liquid cosmetic product and you win hearts!

Description: A bubbly mask that is required to be applied for only a minute! Comes in 50ml or 1.7 fl. oz. It is supposed to contain AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (beta hydroxy acid) but although not explicitly written, it is typically contained in milk and glycolic acid is a type of AHA.

Ingredients: WATER (AQUA), KAOLIN, GLYCERIN, DISILOXANE, BENTONITE, PROPANEDIOL, MYRISTIC ACID, METHYL PERFLUOROISOBUTYL ETHER, STEARICACID, METHYL PERFLUOROBUTYL ETHER, POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE, 1,2-HEXANEDIOL, PALMITIC ACID , ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, MILK PROTEINEXTRACT, DISODIUM EDTA, GAULTHERIA PROCUMBENS (WINTERGREEN) LEAF EXTRACT, GLUCONOLACTONE, GLYCOLIC ACID, TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), FRAGRANCE (PARFUM), COUMARIN, HEXYL CINNAMAL, CITRONELLOL

Price: MYR 36

I’ve uploaded a video of me trying on the product on YouTube. And of course please subscribe!!! I don’t have half a million subscribers to be saying subscription is optional (if you get that reference then you’d understand seamlessness HAHAHA).

The mask. White in colour. Thick cream consistency.

As I spread it, it started BUBBLING! That was cool! It is a bubble mask!!!

Hopefully you can see the bubbles. It bubbles almost immediately so it was difficult to get a shot of the product before it bubbles. So I guess you just have to take my word for it that it was just a white cream. Hahaha!

Pros:

Easy to use!

Fast!

Pump and the bottle, are no muss no fuss, both in terms of functionality and aesthetics.

Skin felt smooth and soft.

Definitely reduces inflammation (I had a large painful zit that happens very infrequently and this product definitely helped reduce both the zit itself and redness around the skin. I would have taken pictures but I more focused about product having an affect on my skin as opposed to the acne. Only noticed it when the zit wasn’t uncomfortable anymore and realised it had shrunk after having used this product a few times. I believe this is due to the BHA in the product which has always had positive affect on my skin. I’ve reviewed Paula’s Choice skincare in the past and one product was a definite winner for me; link to review here).

Skin felt moisturised!

 

Cons:

None! (First Althea product without a CON!)

 

Rating: 9/10

Loved using this! MYR 36 may be not be something I’d spend on just 50 ml product but it is in no way a pricey product. Besides, one would use a mask perhaps 3 to 4 times a week at most so the product will last you a while. Also, I already have so many products to try out and finish so I wouldn’t purchase it at the moment.
