Why You Will Fall In Love With Whamisa: The Certified Organic, Ultra Pure K-Beauty Skincare Brand

Their secret is fermentation: good for your gut, glorious for your face.


 

Like many Angelenos of the writer/waitress/personal trainer/ variety, I am well versed in the health benefits of fermented foods. I eat kimchi and yogurt for the health of my gut, I indulge in Kombucha of course, and as far as skincare goes, I’ve been known to use apple cider vinegar as a toner. So, when I learned about the supremely natural Whamisa collection of skin care and its use of fermented botanicals, I couldn’t wait to try it.

If you haven’t yet heard of it, Whamisa is a certified, organic product line named for the flowers, fruits, seeds and roots it sources, known for its signature fermentation practices and preferential use of ingredients (like featuring healing aloe vera leaf juice over just plain purified water). This killer combination results in concentrated products that are effective but gentle and easily absorbed into your skin. How do I know? Because I have been known to pluck leaves of aloe straight from the ground to slather all over my skin, but also because I’m using several Whamisa products right now. It’s a simple regime that yields covet-worthy results. I’m sold and here’s why you will be too…

 

 

Whamisa Organic Flowers Peeling Finger Mitt 

Whamisa Organic Flowers Peeling Finger Mitt – $30

 

When it comes to peels, I am a “go hard or go home” girl, much to the chagrin of every facialist I’ve ever had, many of whom have begged me to just do nothing to my skin for seven days, which is quite challenging for me. That said, my favorite thing about this finger mitt is that it is gentle enough to use multiple times a week. And, that’s a rarity with peels!

 

The combination of fermented flowers and aloe exfoliates without drying or irritating the skin and left me with fewer pigment issues and a more refined texture, day after day. There’s also the added delight of their rosewood, bergamot and rosemary scent that I find so alluring. 

 

 

Whamisa Organic Flowers Damask Rose Petal Mist

Whamisa Organic Flowers Damask Rose Petal Mist – $35

 

I have been a long-time user of rose oil for hydration, but also to treat acne and rosacea, so I was excited to spritz this all over. The list of floral ingredients is long–rose, chrysanthemum, daisy, and dandelion to name a few–with what looks like rose petals suspended in the light pink liquid.

 

Misting my face after the peeling mitt was a treat and added a high dose of refreshing hydration, without leaving a film on my face. And, this dreamy mist also has that bergamot scent I love. My skin tends to be dry, so I’ve been frequently using this over my makeup and keeping it by my computer to give a boost to my complexion throughout the day. It’s the ideal pick-me-up after a morning of writing and back-to-back Zooms.

 

 

Whamisa Organic Seeds Hydro Gel Mask 

 

 

Whamisa Organic Fruits Hydro Gel Mask Pore Refining – $8

 

This is the holy grail of hydrating masks! My skin looked more supple and taut than ever after using this goodness. Two of the starring ingredients, Houttuynia Cordata, a plant extract and Oryza Sativ, fermented rice are known for calming and conditioning the skin. And, the other natural additions, such as oats and soybeans combined with licorice root extract left my dry skin super hydrated, plump and almost poreless, which never happens to me.

 

Even my stubborn sunspots were less noticeable. I scooped up the leftover essence and dabbed it on my neck and décolleté for an added boost. This is the type of easy, at-home treatment that’s well worth experiencing a couple of times per week. I only wish that someone could see my smooth, glowing skin, but between wearing a mask and social distancing, I’m the only one who knows how good my skin looks. And, I’m perfectly happy with that!

I Love this brand! The finger mitt is my favorite! I use it once a week to exfoliate but it’s defiantly good to use 2-3 times depending on your skin. You need this brand added to your routine 😍

I read up on this product back in the beginning. I am curious how hypoallergenic it is? I know some herbals can cause agitation - such as, I can't do Lavender. Also, what is the shelf life?

Love the cute packaging with the flowers. :)

I have been obsessing over the rose petal mist!! I love spraying it after I apply makeup and also throughout the day. My skin feels and looks hydrated and refreshed which makes it look glowing, which then makes me feel confident! Oh and can't forget about the scent...I feel like I'm in a botanical garden! Which btw I've caught my sister spraying this on her skin and then I hear her go "ahhhh I love the smell!"

I absolutely am in love with this brand! Not only is its packaging incredibly aesthetically pleasing, its quality is amazing. I love their toner for my dehydrated skin and can't wait to try their mist and peeling mitt!

I love that part where instead of using purified water they use aloe vera. I just goes to show that this brand truly cares about your skin's wellbeing because instead of watering down their products they add more nutritive ingredients to make it even better
