Althea Korea's Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist Review

Althea Korea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist
I once read that the scent is the strongest memory that we human beings have. Even popular French fashion designer Coco Chanel agrees and once said that a woman's perfume is an unforgettable ultimate accessory. That being said, people may actually forget how you look but will always remember you for your scent. 

I love to stay fresh and smell good throughout the day. I don't want to smell awful in public so I try to use various perfumes and body spray to prevent this. I make sure to always have it in my bag so that I can spritz anytime whenever and wherever I feel the need to. But you know, sometimes you can't help but smell like sweat especially if you've been in the outdoors for so long. If you live in a tropical country like me, extreme sweating is unavoidable. 

If you're a perfume fan like me, you probably have always wondered what the differences between body mist and perfume are, right? Body mist has a much lighter scent than perfumes. It's meant to be just as it is supposed to be--not something heavy that weighs you down, instead it's meant to be light and airy. Body mist is not concentrated at all so it just sticks to your skin for a little while but needs reapplying later on. 

I have been lucky enough to be given another exciting product to review from Althea Korea. Known as an online shop that sells authentic Korean beauty and skin products, Althea Korea is the best site if you're looking for legit Kbeauty products. Anyway, the product that was sent for me to review is called Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist, a collaboration between Althea Korea and top Indonesian singer and celebrity Titi Kamal. Titi Kamal rose to fame after bagging the role in Ada Apa Dengan Cinta (What's Up with Love?), considered one of Indonesia's best films in the 2000s.

It was the first time for Althea Korea to produce a body mist. A bottle of elegant sweetness, Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist is made up of orange, peach and rose scents as it base. I love the fact that it is skin-friendly. Unlike other body mists I've had used before, this one didn't give a sting nor it can cause skin irritation. The fragrance is very nice and smells fresh, exactly just the way I like it. Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist's bottle is designed very well. It's helpful for we can carry it in our bags very easily. The spray is also so convenient and easy to use. I also love the fact that the fragrance is suitable for all kinds of people.

Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist lingers on my body well although I highly recommend that you also spray this on your clothes for more lasting scent. Wrists aren't always the best spot for fragrance to lasts long as metal jewelry can often alter the smell of a fragrance. It's better for you to spray on top of your arms or elbows corner, roll down your sleeves and wear it all day. That will allow the fragrance to come out through the day. 

I'm really happy with the results of this product. I'm really satisfied. I went out with my friends while wearing the said body mist and a friend complimented me on the fragrance I used. You will certainly fall in love with Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist. 

Lavishly splash or lightly spritz Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist, either way you'll fall in love with this mist! They carefully crafted not just the bottle and sophisticated pump delivers coverage while the mist alone nourishes skin for the lightest, most refreshing way to fragrance! A petal-perfect blend of rose, oranges and peach. 

It has Damask rose water which effectively keeps the skin hydrated as it also gives a gentle fragrance. It also includes orange flower extract that refreshes the senses and elder flower extract the cools and soothes the skin.

The pretty decent spray dispenser to apply the mist gives an even application and quickly covers most of the areas of the body in which you apply the mist into. As it comes in a plastic bottle, it can be easily carried around. 

I have always loved using body mists and this one has become an instant favorite as the smell isn't too overwhelming or powerful. It smells so sweet yet so floral and fresh all at the same time. I love floral and fruity fragrances which notes linger for hours. You don't need to spray more than five times to get completely drenched in this beautiful fragrance. 

As it is a body mist spray and not a perfume, it stays for much lesser time compared to EDT or EDP. But as it is, I always have it on my bag to touch up whenever I am on the go. What I love most about Althea Korea's Stay Fresh Body Sparkling mist is that it does not leave any stain on clothing unlike EDPs. It stays for a maximum of an hour when applied on body and a little longer when applied on garments. 

Overall, I really enjoyed using Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist and would definitely recommend them to friends and buy another one as soon as I finish my first bottle. 

Pros of Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist:

  • Good quantity.
  • Beautiful packaging.
  • Smells so nice.
  • Does not leave stain

Cons of Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist:

The smell doesn't last longer than an hour (but then it's a mist, not a perfume)

Althea Korea Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser Review: Is it worth spending your money on?

Althea Korea's Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser
In a world filled with endless sponsored ads on your social media feeds as well as an ever expanding sea of online influencers and brand ambassadors, it can get pretty confusing to find a beauty product that actually does what it says and what you want it to do. So each time I find a product that I can consider a goldmine, such as Althea Korea's Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser. I got thrilled to use it. As an Althea Angel, I'm so grateful to be given the chance to review one of their latest products called Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser. 

While it may be true that there are lot of genuinely amazing beauty products out there. But then there's also a whole lot of beauty products that offers nothing but empty promises. And sadly, some of the shams are pretty expensive, yet it doesn't necessarily guarantee you a good result which could lead you to throwing money down the toilet.

Chef Laudicos x Kitchen Mafia: Enjoy Malaysian Dishes with Filipino Twists as Celebrity Chefs Collaborate at Chef Laudico Guevarra’s

Chef Laudico Guevarra's deck up for the Christmas Season
I have always been fascinated with all the textures and flavors of other Asian cuisines apart from our very own. It could be the bursts of flavors or the exercise on one’s palate, but the thought of indulging in Asian food truly excites me. I was recently invited to a launch called Chef Laudicos x Kitchen Mafia to sample and get the first dibs on what Chef Roland Laudico (of Chef Laudico Guevarra’s) and Malaysian celebrity chefs Sherson Lian and Johnny Fua (of Kitchen Mafia) collaborated on for Chef Lau's Guevarra's popular buffet restaurant in San Juan.

The mere mention of Malaysian cuisine reminds me of a symphony of flavors making Malaysian cuisine highly complex and diverse because of its influences from Malay, Indian and Chinese. As I have known Malay food, they're strong, spicy and aromatic, combining the rich tastes of the many herbs and spices commonly found in Southeast Asia. 

Many of the fresh herbs and roots that are commonly grown in the Southeast Asian region have found their way into Malay cooking. Lemongrass, shallots, ginger, chilies and garlic are the main ingredients that are blended together and then sautéed to make a sambal sauce or chile paste, a condiment that often accompanies every meal of Malay food.

Chef Sherson and Chef Lau met on the set of Asian Food Channel’s Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines back in 2014. As they worked together, Chef Sherson has observed that both Filipino and Malaysian cuisine had a lot of similarities. “It might not exactly be the same thing but it functions almost similarly, the purpose of the ingredient is almost similar,” said Chef Sherson in an interview.
