Althea Korea's Bare Essentials Skin Care Review

By Ramona Jessica Nadong - April 04, 2018

One of the things I would love to achieve is a flawless skin, what I mean by flawless is a skin that doesn't have any bumps, acne or marks but as I grew older and these things called 'stress' and 'sleepless nights' it made my skin on its worse condition leaving me with no choice but find a perfect skin regime that would suffice my cravings for a healthy, radiant and glowing skin.


Don't get me wrong, I am very much proud with my skin right now but if there's an affordable way for me to achieve this glass skin or at least have a radiant skin, I'm always going for it.


If you would have seen my recent video on youtube, I unboxed a package from Althea Korea which consists of their new skincare line that simplified the infamous 10 step Korean skin care in three easy steps. Honestly, I suck at skincare rituals because I tend to forget them at the end of the day so when I found out about this, I'm really excited to try. 

Bare Essentials focuses on skincare essentials which are cleansing, toning, and moisturizing, thus, giving us three simple products that would provide the essential needs of our skin.



The first thing I immediately noticed upon opening the box is its minimalist design. I really appreciate how everything was tightly wrapped to secure that nothing wrong will happen in the box while it's in transit.


Contour Cleaner (150g)
Price: Php 300
This contour cleanser helps promote our blood circulation and reduces the bloating and swelling of our face for a more defined, slim shape of our face. This product also has microcapsules that would help exfoliate and detoxify the skin. 


I really love foam cleansers because, for me, it's really therapeutic. I love the icy feeling that it gives on my skin because it does relax my skin even more and not only that, it's not stingy on my face compared to other cleaners that I've tried. After using this, I don't feel any tightness in my skin at all. I am also loving the mild scent on my skin since I am allergic to strong scents so this product suits me well.



The Primer Water (200g)
Price: Php 550
This is a hydrating toner and primer packed with one product. This gently fills the gaps between pores and allows hydration to penetrate your skin.


I love the scent of this product and how it sets on my face so easily. I haven't seen any difference on my pores though whenever I use this product and leave my face bare but it does make a huge difference whenever I use it and put some makeup after; it does give my foundation a seamless finish which I absolutely love. I am also impressed by how this product minimizes the oiliness on my skin either I'm bare-faced or not.


The Fixer Cream (50g)
Price: Php 640
This product is non-oily and has a quick-absorbing formula that prevents moisture loss leaving your skin hydration for 24 hours. It also promotes collagen regeneration using Baobao Tree extracts.


I am not a fan of the scent of this product because it smells manly for me but then it fades out as soon as you apply it to your face so it's not a big issue for me at all. As for the formulation, it's too thick for my liking and it takes time to penetrate on my skin.

One thing I've noticed whenever I use the primer water alone, my skin doesn't oil up as much as I use it together with the fixer cream. But one thing I like about this is it makes my skin so bouncy and hydrated leaving my face so radiant especially in mornings- this is my perfect hydrating night cream! 


I've been using this product for over 2 weeks but I am very much impressed and happy with the results so far. I highly recommend this especially to all ladies out there who are always on the go and on a budget- this product is perfect for you. By the way, the entire line of Althea's Bare Essentials only costs you under Php 1500 pesos.
