Now that I've used up a whole bottle I feel like this deserves a proper review...
Whamisa is a brand that uses certified organic ingredients and focuses on double fermentation to break down ingredients in order to increase concentration of nutrients and anti oxidants, thereby enhancing penetration into skin layers for maximum benefits.
This toner comes in a sturdy frosted glass bottle with beautiful floral etchings that adds to the luxury of this product.
A hydrating toner that's slightly thicker than water, with a nice slip that goes on smoothly and absorbs completely without stickiness or residue.
I use this in my toner step but due to the texture and fermented goodness, can be used as a first treatment essence or essence. Sometimes I use it as all of the above (tip: this is great for seven skin method if your skin is feeling dry or just needs a little pampering)
The first ingredient is aloe leaf extract and water is excluded from the formula so it's safe to assume your skin is getting maximum fermented TLC. Other ingredients include extracts of, chrysanthemum, rice, cucumber, lactobacillus, broccoli, aloe, green tea, dandelion, lotus, peony, galactomyces and licorice. Seriously who wouldn't want this making sweet love to their skin? Plus all these have been proven to have soothing nourishing, anti inflammatory properties and can stimulate growth and repair.
These come together to give it a gorgeous earthy, flowery, scent with lemon grass standing out for me, that always uplifts my mood. Sometimes I open the bottle just to sniff it... Although a small bottle of 120 ML, it lasts many months because the texture and incredible list of concentrated, fermented extracts means a little goes a long way, I only need to use 3 or 4 drops for my whole face.
I think all skin types and people interested in organic products will benefit from this products. It is also nice to use even on the hottest afternoon for deep,light and lasting hydration.
This is an amazing product that brings joy into my routine. If you are not sensitive to any of the extracts or alcohol and you love soft, bouncy, chok chok skin, then this is definitely worth a try.
