Review: Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil

7. November 2016

Good news for my fellow German kbeauty lovers: Whamisa skincare is now also available in Germany through the online store for natural cosmetics Najoba. I received the Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil for testing and since the temperatures are constantly dropping with the days it is always a good idea to have a facial oil at hands. Here is my impression:

Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil

The Korean brand Whamisa is relatively young and was founded in 2010 as certified natural cosmetics brand. Their key ingredients focus on plant based fermentation extracts. The brand name is written in Chinese characters which have the meaning of flowers and beauty and the use of four key components of natural materials in their products.  The attractive ingredients are combined with a beautiful packaging design in light colors. Some of the products are decorated with flower illustrations, as you can see here, too.

Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil

The Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil is made of 98 % of pure ingredients derived from nature. It provides deep moisture and absorbs into the skin without any stickiness according to the description. Fermented organic ingredients help the skin to protect itself from harmful environment and dryness by nourishing and creating a skin protective film. The facial oil is also supposed to improve the immunity of the skin by balancing the oil-moisture barrier. The skin is feeling more elastic, moisturized and brightened.

By the way, Whamisa products are formulated without Parabens/Synthetic/Chemical Preservatives, Artificial Dyes and fragrances, Petrochemicals, Silicon/Mineral Oils, EDTA, Animal Origin ingredients. Their products are environmental friendly and free from animal testing. The ingredients of the Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil are:

*Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, *Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, *Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, *Corylus Avellana (Hazel) Seed Oil, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Daucus Carota Satica (Carrot) Seed Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, *Lactobacillus/Chrysanthemum Sinense Flower Ferment Filtrate, *Lactobacillus/Nelumbium Speciosum Flower Ferment Filtrate, *Lactobacillus/Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion) Rhizome/Root Ferment Filtrate, **Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, **Paeonia Suffruitcosa Root Extract, **Glycyrrihiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Aniba Rosaeodora (Rosewood) Wood Oil, Geranium Maculatum Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil 

*Certified Organically Grown **Natural Perservative

You can check the ingredients also on COSDNA and you will see that the list is quite short, and that all the ingredients are green labeled. Since some of the oils can cause potential irritations or Acne please be sure to patch test before use. Apart from the plant-based oils like Argan oil, jojoba oil or Camelia oil the product contains also Lactobacillus fermented plant extracts. Ferment filtrate is nutrients-rich. It contains many vitamins, amino acids and proteins and helps to improve the moisture level of the skin.

Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil

The Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil comes in a milk glass bottle with an attached pipette for dispensing the oil. you can see the yellow colored oil through the glass. In contrast to regular oils like olive oil you will see that this oil is more fluid. It has a light flowery/sweet scent which reminds me of the Whamisa sheet masks I reviewed previously. In order to use this facial oil in your skincare routine you place 1-3 drops on your palms after your regular moisturizing skincare. The you rub the palms to your face and pat until absorbed. I leaves the warming feeling of oil on the skin while applying and feels nourishing directly. It absorbs after a few rubs and leaves a very adorable glow on the skin, without being greasy. Depending on your skintype the amount of the oil varies. You can also mix one drop or two with your regular moisturizer.

Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil

I love the Whamisa Organic Flowers Facial Oil. It is not as heavy as pure argan oil, which I used last winter when my skin was too dry, but it still gives that noticeable protective film to your skin. My only downside for Whamisa products in generall is the price, especially if offered by shops outside of Korea. Of course a high price is justified by the origin of the ingredients, since it is natural and organic cosmetics, and for non-Korean sellers they also have to add the costs for export. Still 45 € for 30 ml bottle of facial oil can be considered quite expensive, but be assured that there are facial oils on the market with less effective ingredients/mineral oil and so on sold for even more.

What is your favorite facial oil?

      Ich liebe Öle auch vorallem im Winter. Ich hasse es wenn sich das Gesicht ganz trocken und kalt anfühlt bei der Kälte und dem Wind. :*

    korean product…korean characters, they are not chinese characters, (as you mentioned in your introductory paragraph) China is a whole different country and different language.

    • Frl. Schnee 6. April 2021 at 14:18

      Thanks for your comment and for your hint. Actually, I know it’s a Korean brand and product and I know that Korean and Chinese are not the same languages. Nevertheless, the brand’s name characters are Chinese ones. It also says so on the brand page, and I also verified by searching for the separate symbols for WHA 花, MI 美, and SA 四. So, this post is in no way meant to be offensive, that’s why I state it’s a Korean product, but the characters of the brand name are derived from Chinese characters.
