Titi Kamal X Althea Korea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist

With new releases from their own brand left and right, Althea Korea is well on its way to carving out a permanent place in the international Kbeauty scene. But what totally surprised me—in an exciting way, of course—was when one of their most recent launches ventured into the fragrance category before they moved onto makeup. From a collaboration with prominent Indonesian actress and singer, Titi Kamal, comes Titi Kamal X Althea Stay Fresh Body Sparkling Mist (PHP 450).

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask

Currently, my biggest beauty undertaking of 2018 is joining the #ABMidyearStashChallenge on Instagram. The prospect of sorting through my collection and categorizing/documenting what I have is helpful in maintaining my beauty low-buy pledge, since I’m being met with the sheer amount I still have to use up. It’s also also caused me to dig through the beauty products that I’ve nearly forgotten about. Now I’m in the mood to line them up for review, starting with the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask in Vitalizing (estimated PHP 400 / USD 9).
