REVIEW ON ALTHEA BARE ESSENTIALS FIXER CREAM

Hi gorgeous,

Here is the review of Althea Bare Essentials Fixer Cream.  You can find the review for the Contour cleanser (HERE) and the primer water toner (HERE).

This Althea fixer cream came from the idea of making Korean skincare steps into 3 simple steps instead of the usual 10 to 20 skincare products and still managed to care for your skin needs.  After all your skin should complete your makeup and not to cover your skin.

Althea Bare Essentials Fixer Cream comes in a simplistic white box. The frosted jar is actually made from plastic with an aluminium cap.  It doesn't come with a spatula.


The ingredients inside Althea Bare Essentials Fixer Cream are quiet interesting.  It is a mix of water, silicone, oil, fatty acid and fatty alcohol so the reason for the elegant texture.  It is occlusive enough to hold moisture and prevent dryness of the skin too.  Olive oil is high on the list and it emollient enough for dry skin.

Other plant ingredients such as chia seed, centella asiatica, lavender, green tea, Imperata Cylindrica Root, Houttuynia Cordata, Barbary fig and baobab are used for hydration, soothing, calming, antibacterial, humectant and speed up healing.

Prebiotic sugars as in Fructooligosaccharides to heal and soothe skin conditions.

There are also other hydrating ingredients such as the Saccharide Hydrolysate, hyaluronic acid, carbomer and  Polyisobutene.

Do also check the ingredient list for potential irritants.

The opaque white cream has a light cream texture which upon application turns into transparent soft light lotion. It is really smooth and has a dewy look on my skin.  It works great under makeup since it keeps the makeup from caking or drying.  I can only use about diameter 1cm since too much will make combination skin looks really oily.  It does have strong fragrance which I am not a fan.  After using it for about 3 weeks, I find the cream non irritating on my skin. It doesn't cause more acne on my skin or make the acne disappeared.  It does works great for the driest part of my face.


Overall, Althea Bare Essentials Fixer Cream is a great moisturiser for dry skin or for people who need a hydrating base for makeup.  If one do not have problem with the ingredients, then it is a great choice of moisturiser especially someone who looks for occlusive moisturiser.
