Oolu is a sister brand of Whamisa. If you know Whamisa you might already have thought about the resemblance in their packaging design and style. Both products are belonging to Dr. Ohkims Cosmetics. That is why both brands are focussing on natural cosmetic products and especially fermented plant extracts. The description for this brand stated at MeMeBox says:
I received a whole bunch of products from Oolu but I didn’t want to fit them all in one post, instead I divide the post into three parts starting with the Oolu Moisture Liquids. I was beyond happy to see that I received even two versions of the Oolu Moisture Liquid, the Jasmine version and the Rose version. These are also the two versions available on MeMeBox. On the official page of Ohkims cosmetics there is a third Moisture Liquid with Sunflower.
Looking at the beautiful cardboard box packaging it is hard to imagine that the inside can even be more breathtaking, but it is! The bottles of the Oolu Moisture Liquid contain real flower petals and blossoms! It is so amazingly beautiful I cannot keep from looking at them. The description says, that to make one of those gorgeous bottles of Moisture Liquid it takes 1656 hours of preparation starting with collecting, drying, selecting and preserving process, blending, and so on. Although both Oolu Moisture Liquids are toners and are used after cleansing your face and before using other products like serums and cream both have distinct properties.
Oolu Jasmine Moisture Liquid
The description of the Oolus Jasmine Moisture Liquid says: “Jasmine Bloom with botanical natural extracts help the skin toning, moisturizing and revitalizing. It increases the skin elasticity and clearness.” This yellow colored liquid comes in a hard plastic bottle with a metal lid. Inside the bottle you will spot beautiful tiny jasmine flowers. I made a video on Instagram showing how pretty the flowers look like. The ingredients of the Jasmine Moisture Liquid are listed on MeMeBox:
Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower/Leaf Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Caulerpa Lentillifera Extract, Artemisia Annua Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Helichrysum Italicum (Everlasting) Extract, Azadirachta Indica Leaf Extract, Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract, Rosa Rugosa Flower Extract, Magnolia Kobus Flower Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Jasmine Flower, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Alcohol
You can look up the ingredients at COSDNA, too. All ingredients except of Jasmine Oil are labelled green. Jasmine Oil can be irritant to some people because it is considered a very heavy oil, so please be sure to avoid the product if you react to it. Jasmine Flower and Leaf extract is the key ingredient of course and it acts not only as fragrance but also for moisturizing and anti-inflammatory ingredient. Apart from Jasmine, which is obviously a key ingredient according to the name, you will discover our old friends Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide in the list. Also another bunch of plant extracts are listed (eg. licorice) . Lastly, the toner uses alcohol for better absorption into the skin. If you have dry skin and are worried about alcohol here: there is no need to fear that the alcohol dries out your skin. The Jasmine oil and the bergamotte oil give the Oolu Moisture Liquid a light oil consistency, not heavy but still you will feel how nicely it glides on the skin and how it feels like more than just a bit of water and alcohol, although it actually only looks like water. I find it extremely moisturizing and skin conditioning. The jasmine scent is definitely recognizable and it feels like a spa event if you like the scent and apply it. A little goes a long way here. You can decide whether to apply the moisture liquid by hands or by cotton pad. I usually use my hands for applying. It has a slightly sticky feeling to it at first, which disappears after a bit.
Oolu Rose Moisture Liquid
The description of the Oolu Rose Moisture Liquid says: “Fresh Rose Petal with botanical extracts help the skin calming, deep moisturizing and increases the skin elasticity.” This pink colored liquid comes in a hard plastic bottle with a metal lid, like the Jasmine Moisture Liquid. Inside the bottle you will spot rose petals instead of jasmine blossoms.The ingredients of the Rose Moisture Liquid are listed on MeMeBox:
Rose Damascena Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion) Leaf Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract, Iris Versicolor Extract, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, Caulerpa Lentillifera Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Rose Damascena Flower, Adenosine, Rose Damascena Flower Oil, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Brassica Oleracea Capitata (Cabbage) Leaf Extract, Alcohol
You can look up the ingredients at COSDNA, too. All ingredients are labelled green. Rose is surely the key ingredient here. Rose extract is antibacterial in first case, but also acts as fragrant. You will discover Hyaluronic Acid and Niacinamide in the list here, too. Also another bunch of plant extracts are listed. Lastly, the toner uses alcohol for better absorption into the skin. If you have dry skin and are worried about alcohol here: there is no need to fear that the alcohol dries out your skin. The rose oil and the wild geranium oil give the Oolu Moisture Liquid a light oil consistency, similar to the Jasmine Moisture Liquid. The scent is not an extreme rose heavy as some other products, but you will definitely recognize the rose scent. A little goes a long way here, too. You can decide whether to apply the moisture liquid by hands or by cotton pad. I usually use my hands for applying. It has a slightly sticky feeling to it at first, which disappears after a bit.
If you are a sucker for special packaging design you will need to get the Oolu Moisture Liquid Jasmine and/or Rose. The flowers inside the bottles are super pretty. I also like the hard plastic bottles here. Furthermore, I’m quite a scent-loving person and these definitely have a scent to them. I really like both because I love rose and I love jasmine scent. Although the two toners claim to have slightly different properties I didn’t feel any difference between using these two. I really like them both. Oh, and did I say that Oolu products are free from animal testing?! Also, their pH is between 5-6. Each bottle of this precious Oolu Moisture Liquid contains 200 ml and retails for Oolus Jasmine Moisture Liquid . Also, since it is natural cosmetics it has to be used within 6 months after opening. What do you think about these two products?
