Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway Sunscreen Review

Being a brand ambassador for Althea, I get a lot of the newest products from the brand but I am not paid for any of these. So, even if I am representing the brand, if there is something I DON’T like about the products, you’re going to see it under the ‘Cons’ section of the review. That being said, this product was sent to me, but opinions are all mine.

The product.

Swatch

The product is white in colour.

Blends into nothing.

Pros:

Blends well into the skin.

No white cast.

Not greasy or sticky.

It doesn’t just melt off the skin into a white milky disgusting discharge when I sweat (I was surprised with this because every other sunscreen that is white like this that I’ve tried, does this).

 

Cons:

DO NOT get this on the hair because the hair becomes like it gets set with hairspray.

I definitely felt it on the skin, not as bad as some others I’ve tried, but I felt it; like I was using foundation.

 

Note: This does have a rather strong scent due to the damask rose so it would depend on you if that is bad or good.

 

Rating: 8/10

As with many Althea products I was surprised that this worked! I don’t know if I am going to repurchase because of the price but it is definitely a good product! Especially if you have darker skin.
