Hi beautiful,

Althea which is the popular online K-Beauty shop has launched their own product called the Bare Essentials.  This new skincare line is called Bare Essentials for the short Korean routine that has been picking up trend since 2017 in South Korea.  Honestly, who has all the time for the 10 skincare steps?

All the other steps are just additional and nice great skin is the base for makeup.  So, here is the review on Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water.

Check out the review to see if this is the cheaper dupe of the famous Korean 'SP' water.

Both a hydrating toner and a primer in one, the Primer Water contains patented dewdrop technology (Macro Fluidic Dispersion technology) that gently fills the gaps between pores and allows hydration to penetrate deep within the layers of the skin. Made with Snow Lotus extracts, this skincare heavy hitter has an incredibly smooth and silky texture that enhances the skin’s natural glow, leaving you with the perfect canvas.

Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water
- Hydrates and preps the layers of the skin
- “Dewdrops” soften and improve suppleness
- Primer that smooths out unevenness

How to use: Pour out a small amount and gently patting in for better absorption.


Ingredients:
Water, Propanediol, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Alcohol,1,2-Hexanediol, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, Betaine, Fructooligosaccharides, Saccharide Hydrolysate, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pullulan, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Saussurea Involucrata Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Origanum Vulgare Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Sclerotium Gum, Agar, Polysorbate 20, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance



Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water comes in fancy frosted looking plastic bottle. I do like the minimalistic simple white box and bottle.    You can squeeze the bottle to make the product comes out easier.  The opening is also just suitable to dispense the toner.  The cap is the aluminium screw type which is great because it won't comes loose during travelling with your toner.

Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water has water as the first ingredients, there are solvents, emulsifier, plant extract and fragrance.  There isn't any coloring. Do check out if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.  Chia seed, centella asiatica, sugar, sage, German chamomile, rosemary, lavender, oregano, thyme and agar.  These plants ingredients are chosen for the calming, anti inflammatory and hydrating abilities.

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

The scent is powdery floral scent.  The scent does become faint after 30minutes but it is still there (2 hours and above) but if one apply it a few layers the scent can be strong.  I am used to unscented and Korean medicinal scent so I am not really liking floral scent.  I do know that there are people who loves strong floral scent in their skincare though.

The texture comes out as viscous watery liquid.  It does absorbs fast into the skin and makes the skin hydrated as well as soft without the sticky feeling.

It is a hydrating toner with pH5-6 of so it is not a exfoliating toner.  One can also use it with compressed mask if you like hydrating milky mask.  It is also hydrating enough for the 7skin methods.

After using it for 3 weeks, I think it is a nice hydrating primer toner which is great especially for skin that tend to flakes during makeup.  It doesn't irritate the existing acne but it does not clear it up so I guess it is okay.

Overall,  Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water is nice hydrating toner for makeup, dry to normal skin type, doesn't have problem with the ingredients. It is not a toner for treating acne.
