Review: Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway

Happy Saturday! Today I’m excited to share to you my latest review of the Althea Sunblock–Petal Velvet Sunaway. I have been obsessing their Petal Velvet loose powder so when this came out I was super excited to try it and I really have high hopes since I have been loving their other Petal Velvet product.


Shield your skin from the sun’s rays and give it some petal protection with Althea’s Petal Velvet Sunaway!

Price: Php 500 or $10.

Weight: 55ml or 1.86 fl oz.

Description and Claims:

A lightweight sunscreen that protects the skin from UV rays with a petal-like finish. This sunaway has natural ingredients, soft as a flower petal, with light weight formula and is cruelty free. This has a SPF 50 PA++++ that will protect you for both UVA and UVB rays. 

  • translucent sunblock
  •  Leaves skin feeling fresh and hydrated

Ingredients:  Some notable ingredients include:

  1. DAMASK ROSE which is responsible for giving that radiant glow and also has soothing properties.
  2. HYALURONIC ACID for added moisture and to prevent skin dehydration.
  3. GERANIUM OIL that gives you a glow and also helps heal acne.

How to use: Apply a generous amount of the sunaway before any sun exposure. Always remember to shake the product before applying.

Packaging: The packaging of the Sunaway is super sleek and classy with a pink and white theme. The bottle has a pointed tip so it is easier to control the amount of product to release and also if you shake the bottle you can hear a ball that stirs the product.

Effectiveness and other Experiences:

  • Let’s talk about the scent first, it smells like rose which some may find lovely but some might not like it but personally like it rather than the typical sunscreen scent.
  • Just like my initial thoughts, it has a velvety finish but when it dries up, it has a semi-matte finish.
  • The semi-matte finish helps my skin be more hydrating and at the same time doesn’t make my face look flat. It just gives a healthy glow.
  • In terms of Sebum control, I would say that it also helps in oil control but not entirely will make your face oily free.

Final thoughts and Tips:

  • This is a great everyday sunblock because it is lightweight and doesn’t give any white cast.
  • This has become my go to sunblock since I love the healthy glow finish it gives.
  • Overall, I would definitely recommend you guys to try this if you are looking for  a good everyday sunblock.
