Althea Waterful Green Bamboo Pad

Hi! Since it’s already summer, this is a good time to share with you a multifunctional pad that I have been enjoying these days. If you’re like me and your skin is easily irritated by the weather or you just like skin care and is looking for something fun to use then you are in the right place!
🌿Product Claims:

Instantly soothes and deeply moisturizes the skin.
Packed with moisturizing ingredients to give skin a healthy glow.
Keeps skin hydrated all day long with our Moist-veil System technology.


This product smells like lemons. It’s very refreshing.

There are two sides of each pad, one side is very soft and the other is embossed. The texture of both sides of the pad is very soft even the embossed side but I can definitely tell them apart since the embossed side feels like gauze.

It is packaged in a white plastic matte tub with a green twist off cap and also comes with tweezers. The tub is durable, despite it being a bit bulky it’s very easy to travel with. There is an inner seal that helps from letting the essence dry up, sadly this seal is too exact with the tub’s circumference that I got both tubs with one part of the inner seal already loose and some of the essence has already leaked so if you do get one immediately check and keep the tub upright.


The essence is very light and watery and it is absorbed immediately by my skin. It does not leave any residue and keeps my skin looking semi-matte and more vitalized. It cools down my skin and does not have any adverse reactions on my skin even on those newly formed pimples.

Although there is not much extra essence in the tub, which is probably one of the downsides of this product because there are pads in it that needs to always be drenched in the essence for it to stay soft and not dry up too fast, the pads are thoroughly drenched in the essence.

The pad itself is made out of bamboo fiber and I think that it’s really great because it is environmentally friendly. These pads are super soft, sturdy, they do not rip easily and it does not unravel. I hope that with every bamboo used, they replace it with a seedling.


It’s soothing power is good it helps soothe my skin within minutes. I love using this especially when my skin is irritated. It’s really helpful that the pads are quite large that I don’t need to use a lot of it. It’s also very helpful that the pads can be used in parts of the skin where I only need them, that’s one of the great things about having these kind of product as opposed to a full face sheet mask.

When my skin had this reaction with a mask that I was testing out my skin went crazy! It was raw, my skin started breaking out, my skin was so itchy add the sudden weather changes to that and my skin was just a mess. I slap this on for 15 minutes and really help soothe my skin, even the redness was almost gone it really did a great job.

I would say that the hydrating power of this bamboo pad is great. Whenever I use this as a mask pack, my skin feels cooler and hydrated throughout the day. It’s also good to note that it helps with excess oil production.


There is an immediate brigtening effect and it lasts the whole day! Yay for that. With continous use it also helps lighten acne marks.

🌿As A Mask Pack:

One pad can last up to 20-25 minutes before it completely dries up which I think is great because I like leaving on masks for 30 minutes just because they haven’t dried up. Another great thing with these eco friendly pads is that even when it has already dried up completely it does not stick on the skin like glue. It’s so easy to lift them off. I think this is great especially for those who falls asleep when using masks haha!

🌿As A Toning Pad:

The embossed side lifts dirt and pollution. What I love about it is that it does not feel rough but it does remove dead skin cells as well as the soft side does. The soft side is very pleasant it’s just so soft it feels like it just glides on the skin. It leaves my skin feeling fresh yet smoothe to the touch. I’m quite happy about it. I kinda wish my clothes were made of this haha!

After using as a toning pad

🌿How To Use:

As a toning pad, I use the embossed side to wipe away any remaining dirt and excess sebum from my skin and then using the soft side I wipe my skin again and pat it on to help whatever essence is left to be absorbed.

As a mask, I use several for my entire face or on parts of my skin that I need to soothe and hydrate, removing it after 20 or so minutes. I just remove it until it’s all dry.


  1. Use in the morning or evening skin care routine.
  2. Use whenever you feel that your skin is irritated. Just wash your face prior to using it.
  3. Keep the tub in the fridge not in the freezer. It will really help with cooling down the skin temperature.
