Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Toner was something I’d seen a few times online and wondered what it was. The bottle was beautiful but I didn’t see too many reviews of the stuff, so I put it out of my mind and focused more on the other major available toner options from Asia here in the USA. Fast forward a few months, and I see it popping up in videos, articles, and all over social media. I did a little research and decided to order it from Amazon.
Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Toner is a cut above many other great toners because of the organic ingredients, a fermentation process unique to the brand, and the luxurious packaging. It’s a little more expensive than your average toner. I’d argue that this product is more of treatment than a toner, but it’s truly multifunctional.
Early in the 2000’s my first foray into fermented skincare was by the brand Fresh. My skin loved the products, and I noticed my redness decrease quite a bit. Other than SKII, I was unaware of any other brands at the time that had fermented ingredients, so I stayed with Fresh for a while. Recently, there have been great findings of fermented ingredients helping acne and rosacea!
In short, fermentation does quite a lot for your skin. It breaks down the ingredients so your skin can use them more efficiently. It causes the antioxidant and nutrient density to increase. It makes byproducts of certain ingredients into peptides and amino acids. It’s also making the whole ingredient more acidic, changing the pH to be more skin friendly.
The Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Toner has some ingredients in it I didn’t know much about. It all adds up to rich sources of vitamins a, c, e, essential fatty acids, and aha’s. It’s antifungal, antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.
The product itself is housed in an elegant frosted glass bottle that is utterly luxe. You shake the bottle into the palm of your hand until several drops have come out. The texture is hard to describe as it’s more like a gel/oil/serum than anything else. The scent is like you have just your dipped your face into an alpine meadow. Not in a perfumery way, but actually. You can smell all the life, death, and nutrients. It’s intense. I don’t mind it at all, and after a few moments, it calms into a very light floral scent that fades quickly as it dries. Sweep the toner on and then pat it in. It’s very viscous feeling and does take a few minutes to dry down fully. On my skin, I don’t notice any stickiness, but the finish is more like oil or serum than a toner or essence on the skin. This is the last “toner” I put on before any additional essence, treatment, or oil.
So what does the Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Toner do on the skin? Everything! It resurfaces, moisturizes, conditions, heals, soothes, brightens, tightens, and reenergizes skin. At first use, just like the Klairs toner, wasn’t overly impressed by the results. I don’t spend a lot of time in the mirror, so three or 4 days had passed before I really inspected my skin. I’d noticed it was much softer and smoother to the touch, but when I looked at it, I was taken aback. I saw a glow that I’ve never seen before. Like the surface of a freaking pearl. My skin had this soft focus translucent effect. My pores and fine lines OBLITERATED. I mean, I looked like I’d put on luminizer and a pore/line smoothing primer but I hadn’t done either. My skin was plump, rosy, and otherworldly. I’ve been using several new Korean brands in conjunction with my old favorites, but I can tell you the particular difference here is baby butt smoothness, refined texture, and nacre-like glow. Honestly, I have to stop myself from touching my skin because it feels that good. As someone who has had massive textural issues from acne and rosacea, I can’t tell you the level of happiness this product is bringing me. I know it sounds silly, but when you’ve had bad skin and been made fun of for your skin in your teens, it’s exceptionally rewarding to be walking around at almost 40 looking this great. It also feels so comfortable and energized, it’s lifting my mood. Even pre-caffeine!
I’m not sure this product will make such a dramatic improvement in your routine if you already have great skin, but it certainly will not hurt it. I am obviously going to keep using the Whamisa Organic Flowers Deep Rich Toner as long as it’s made! It’s not going to stop gravity or give me a facelift, but it’s certainly going to help give me the best skin I can have. I’m 100% sold on these more natural Korean brands. I do need to add in some additional serums to my routine, like vitamin c or some other peptide goodness but I’m pretty sure I’ll just be gilding the lily!
I’d recommend this for any skin type, just with how moisturizing it is, you might not need much afterward on top.
