Review: Cloud9 Blanc de Whitening Cream

Hooray! I got this cutie from Althea Korea during their “Brightest Stars” Promotion. I got curious because this is one of Althea’s best sellers. In the product info, it was said that there’d been 10 billion bottles sold to date! Le Blanc de Whitening offers instant skin whitening effects that last up to 12 hours! Made with aloe, snow lotus, white ginseng, lily flower, houttuynia cordata, freesia, daisy and edelweiss extracts, this cream effectively reduces melanin in the skin, lightens dark UV spots, reduces redness, diminishes freckles and evens out skin tones with continuous use. This whitening cream also rejuvenates damaged, dull skin, keeping it looking healthy and supple all day.

The only thing I’m not a fan of is the part where I need to scoop the product out using a spatula. I prefer an easier way like a dispenser. There are times I tend to get too much product and I would just waste it. 🤦🏼‍♀️

So far, I’m loving the effect. It can be used as a cream before make up and it can also be used as overnight cream. It doesn’t feel sticky but it’s isn’t really that lightweight either. I can compare this to Aqua Blossom. They both have instant whitening effect. (Click on the link to read about Aqua Blossom)

I like that I can apply the product on my skin without looking cakeyand it really stays long. I already have fair skin but I like the way this product can help even the tone. There are dark areas, those that are mostly exposed to the sun. We all do. 😊

I’d give this ⭐️⭐️ ⭐️⭐️/5

Review: Mise en Scène Perfect Serum (Rose Edition)

I’ve been looking for a serum that can tame my edgy hair. I don’t have much of baby hairs nowadays but it’s the ends that bother me when I check my hair in the mirror. It easily gets dry and dull even after I just had them trimmed.

So I came across this product from Althea Korea and I quickly made my order. It was really hassle-free not to mention all their products are legit plus shipping didn’t take long considering it’s international. I was so happy about their free shipping option (minimum of P999) and the best part is I was able to use my rewards points!

So back to this hair serum…

I love the scent (first impression)! Yeah, it’s rose but then this one just catches attention, it’s sweet and subtle but uniquely captivating. If it’s me, I’d love smelling my hair! 😂

The texture is really great. No sticky feeling, no residue will be left on your palm because it gets absorbed well by the hair. As advised by hair experts, the best time to apply a hair serum is when hair is damp. Not wet nor dry.

My usual edgy hair problem got eliminated by this serum. I carry it with me like how I got used with other serums but hey, I really didn’t need to reapply. After 8 hours, my hair was still in shape! 😊 No edginess, no dry ends.

I’d give this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5

Review: Hello Everybody Nature Holic Body Lotion (Moringa)

Hey reader! Thanks for dropping by my blog. I’ve been wanting to post about my review on this product as I’ve been using it for a month now.


I’m totally happy with the moisturizing effect as my skin has always been dry. I’ve read from Althea Korea before I purchased this product about its benefits and ingredients. They also included reviews which is really cool! I love Althea Korea!

Aside from the lotion, there are other Moringa products to choose from. There is a shampoo, conditioner and body wash. I’ve used the body lotion so far and I’m really happy about it.


According to their product info, they are using Ceramide and natural ingredients for moisture lock up. Another thing I love about this product is it has amazing scent. It reminds me of The Body Shop’s morninga perfume that I’ve used years back.

If you have dry skin and you love scented body lotion, I’d recommend this product!

I’m giving this ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

An SPF would make it a perfect 5 for me!

First Impression: Aqua Blossom White Effect OLED Cream

While shopping at Althea Korea, this caught my attention. I was actually looking for a moisturizer which can also lighten dark skin areas so this would be perfect!

Got this for 73% off!

P440 instead of P1640👏🏼

These are found on Althea Korea website:

50g/ 1.6FL Oz.

It’s got a nice packaging 😍


There’s a button to press for the product to come out! 🤗 It’s hygienic 💕


You can also regulate the amount of product you wanna get from it.


There’s an instant effect. My arm obviously has been applied with the product. 😊

I’d have to do another review for the long term effect of this product.

Description on the box:

“WHITE EFFECT OLED CREAM” which contains diamond powders, brings clear and pure skin for it is using much pearl extracts instead of purified water and it contains authenticated whitening ingredients as much as possible which feels like cream and will brighten user’s own skin color by using it immediately.

How my skin feels: It’s not that moisturizing. It leaves a matte finish but because my skin is quite dry, it highlights my lines. However, this is on my arms and hands. On my face, it’s good to be used as a primer for my BB Cream.

For my first impression rating, I’d give it

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

Review: Innisfree Manuka Honey Mask

From Innisfree Website:
Moisturize your skin with the manuka honey It’s real squeeze mask!

1. It’s real squeeze mask – manuka honey
Manuka honey from New Zealand’s manuka flowers has abundant nutrients for healthier skin.

2. Jeju green complex
The Jeju green complex consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, camellia leaves, and orchids to keep your skin healthy.

3. Triple-layered sheet
This triple-layer sheet has a long-lasting moisturizing effect so that the essence can gradually be absorbed into the skin.
How to use

1. After washing your face, gently apply toner on your face to even out your skin texture. 

2. Then, apply the mask over your entire face, avoiding your eye and lip areas.

3. Remove the mask after 10-20 minutes and gently pat your face to allow the remaining formula to absorb into your skin.


My experience:

I have a combination type of skin but it’s more on the dry side. This mask is super hydrating! Others might find this greasy or too heavy in moisture but for me, it’s just right. 😊 I might not always prefer this over fruity or herbal masks but I’m fine with this mask every 2 weeks to give my skin more moisture. After using the mask, I had to let the remaining formula be absorbed on my skin since it’s not a wash off type. It’s really a  thick formula, I’d say. 

I’m currently using avocado emulsion and it’s great at doing its job in keeping my skin moisturized but I don’t mind using this mask every two weeks to get the many skin benefits from Manuka Honey 🍯. 

In case you haven’t encountered Manuka Honey, here are some benefits from Mindbodygreen :

Heals acne: Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, manuka honey reduces redness and heals congested or inflamed skin and eczema. Additionally, Manuka oxygenates pores to draw out bacteria, drastically improving acne-prone areas.
Repairs skin: Manuka promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage and lessens scarring.
Hydrates: When applied to your skin, manuka will hold in moisture and absorb moisture from the air for a dewy, glowing complexion.
Anti-aging: Because of its moisturizing properties, manuka retains moisture without making skin oily, the first step in wrinkle-free skin. It also inhibits MMP, a group of enzymes that destroy collagen.

My rating:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5
