I’m back with more short and sweet reviews! I’ve decided to jump in and review my most favorite moisturizing toner by Whamisa.
Smell: Floral – slight hint of rose and chrysanthemum
Texture: Moderately thick when dispensing and absorbs quickly into the skin while applying.
Color: Clear (bottle is pink)
Price: Retail ~$40 on beauty websites. I purchased this bottle a while back on Amazon when retail price was around $50. You can find cheaper prices on eBay (be careful in selecting a trusted seller).
Size: 120 ml / 4 fl oz
Package details: 97.40% organic ingredients. This rich, serum-like bouncy toner is enriched with argan oil, dandelion extracts and galactomyces. Botanical extracts from aloe and chrysanthemum replace water for lasting hydration. Ingredients are supercharged with our signature fermentation process for maximum efficacy. Recommended for dry and normal skin types. Vegan friendly.
How to use: After cleansing face, dispense onto hand or cotton pad. Gently pat onto face. Use daily, morning and night. Follow with Whamisa lotion and/or cream.
Aloe Maculata Leaf Extract: This plant gel is used traditionally as a remedy for many medicinal properties by local people like: Skin complains, inflammation, respiratory system, muscular-skeletal system, poisoning, circulation and endocrine system diseases. You can find this ingredient in many of Whasmisa’s popular products as well as Ausome’s Hydrating Double Mist.
Chrysanthemum Morifolium Flower Extract: This plant is well known for treating chest pain, high blood pressure and type-2 diabetes, as well as fevers, colds, and headaches. It is popularly consumed as a beverage during the summertime in southern China and is now used in cosmetic products to boost fragrances.
Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract: Much like the lotion, Avena is used for its anti-inflammatory, moisturizing and soothing properties on the skin. This ingredient may also help ease a variety of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, acne and dry, itchy skin.
Rating: 4/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Best. Aloe Vera. Replacement. Ever. Organic toner with natural chrysanthemum flowers and aloe– YES!
Yes, this is slightly on the pricey side when it comes to purchasing aloe (and I’m all for the Holika Holika Aloe 99% Soothing Gel. Next review coming up!), but the smell of this toner is amazing. If I have any acne scars on my face, I apply a very small amount of this toner and within the next few days, my scars have disappeared.
Many argue that paying a hefty $50 for a bottle of aloe isn’t worth the price, but for me, the smell and cute bottle was worth my while. Call me easy, I’ll accept that.
Easy to use, no irritation, gets rid of scars quickly and smells amazing. What’s not to love?
