REVIEW ON DR.ALTHEA POWER WHITENING GLUTATHIONE MASK

Nowadays, there are more dermatologist brands that are producing skincare products that appeal to the mass market where brighter, fairer and clear skin is always the "In" thing here in Asia.  It is mostly called cosmeceutical which means combining dermatologist approach into skincare products😀.

Dr. Althea is a dermatologist Korean brand offering safe whitening skincare products.  Some of their products such as their whitening glutathione cream are featured in the famous Get it Beauty show😍. 

What I have here today is the Dr.Althea Power Whitening Glutathione Mask😎.  This brand is sure interesting and as I am curious about it myself.

Dr.Althea Power Whitening Glutathione Mask is a hydrogel type mask which is separated into two pieces which makes the hydrogel sheet mask fits my face well and doesn't slide off. The material is like other hydrogel .

The sheet mask is sandwiched between a plastic and pearl paper.

I can't remember if there any scent to it.

The hyrogel sheet mask feels cooling and it does get thinner as time goes by and so it must remove once it is reaches the point of 1 hour or maybe 1hour 30minutes . 1 hour is quite long and the sheet mask probably will be as thin as snake skin by then 😂.

The ingredients inside are mostly brightening ingredients and hydrating the skin at the same time.  It does contain plant extract such as rose, licorice, grape, coconut oil, green tea extract, Artemisia Princeps Leaf Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, jojoba oil, castor oil and yuzu extract.  There are also propolis, Lactobacillus Ferment,Niacinamide, Titanium Dioxide, Glutathione(100ppm),Pearl Powder and Hydrolyzed Collagen which are for brightening the skin😊.

Search on the CosDNA shows all the ingredients are mostly in green and acne causing ingredients are very low in list .  Still check the ingredients for potential allergen since I don't typical react to sheet mask.  You might not be the same as me so do have a look at the ingredient list😶.

I don't really respond much to whitening products especially sheet mask so I guess other than hydration and temporary brightening,  you won't see me rave about the of 'instant magical' effect some people rave about in their reviews about sheet mask.

Overall, Dr.Althea Power Whitening Glutathione Mask is a hydrogel sheet mask if you are willing to splurge on a brightening mask for a special occasion. It does give a better effect in terms of hydration and longer wear duration compared to the usual paper sheet masks.
