Hello readers! You’ve probably heard about this product already. I’ve been trying it for a while and I’m ready to share my thoughts. Althea has been releasing unique products lately. I’m glad to try them out for you guys! This was sent to me but as always, everything is based on my sensitive skin’s experience.
Description from their website:
Give your skin a big gulp of hydration with the refreshing peeling powers of Althea’s Milk Peel Cream Mask! Containing both AHA and BHA extracts, this gentle but effective exfoliator transforms from a clay to a whipped cream lather, whisking away dead skin cells to prevent flakiness. It’s also formulated with casein protein from milk to revitalize and moisturize the skin. The result is radiantly smooth, healthy skin that’s bouncy to the touch!
How to use:
Dampen the skin and apply an even layer onto the skin, massaging till a rich lather forms. Leave on for 30-60 seconds before rinsing away with warm water.

This mask to cleanser product is innovative. Perfect for those who want to save time or for those who still want to step up their skin care game. Not everyone has the time to use tons of products, right? It has this thick creamy texture. Surprisingly, it feels light and doesn’t feel hot either. Skin is brighter after using. It’s probably the milk protein in it. Milk usually do that based on previous products I’ve tried. My skin felt soft, smooth and hydrated as well. I’d still recommend to follow up with moisturizer after if you have dry skin.
As you can see in the photos above, it just looks like cream from the start. Then it slightly lathers up after a few seconds. How cool is that? Since its fragrance is strong for me, I only use this on oily areas that are not sensitive. I lack exfoliation on those areas.
Overall, this is good addition in a routine. It mildly exfoliates with AHA and BHA, doubles as mask and cleanser. It’s like a treat to yourself after a long day to bring back that fresh look. Milk is beneficial not just for the body. It’s also great as an ingredient for skin care. It’s nourishing, can strengthen and make skin feel baby soft.
