Review: Whamisa Organic Flowers Olive Leaf Mist


My first Whamisa mist went expired before I can start using it so I bought this instead. I got mine from Althea Korea when it just introduced the brand Whamisa. I got this mist at only about RM70 after taking into account all the free gifts and discounts!

One thing very cool about Whamisa products is that they are all waterless, which means they are highly concentrated, undiluted skincare items. RM70 is not too overly overpriced since this is made of all pure organic extracts. Laneige mist that I like better is way pricier than this yet that one is made of mainly mineral water!

After using it for a good 5 months, I must say that this has quickly become one of my favourite facial mists this year! Let’s find out more about this Whamisa mist below!


Whamisa Organic Flowers Olive Leaf Mist is packed in a transparent plastic bottle spray. The packaging and the olive petals inside make it extremely aesthetically appealing to use. The spray is also pretty easy to use and will produce fine and cloudy mist. The Olive Leaf Mist has a nice fermented floral scent like all other Whamisa products. If you love Whamisa scent, you’ll love this too!

I love using this as moisturizing toner most of the time. It does a great job supplying my skin with a lot of moisture. It feels super refreshing and moisturizing when you spray it on the skin. And since it comes in a small size, it is very travel-friendly too. You can bring this along with you everywhere you go, as a quick touch-up or even toner.

INGREDIENTS ANALYSIS


For some reasons, my skin isn’t compatible with Whamisa products. Most Whamisa products itch me out, except for this. Even that, this tingles my skin when I spray it on the skin so I am always careful not to use too much.

Ingredients-wise, this looks like it has a lot to offer. It is made of 92.5% organic ingredient that are naturally fermented to distill and preserve its potency. It is also eco-cert and BDIH Standard certified for greater quality assurance.

Key ingredients here are aloe vera, olive, centella asiatica, angelica root, wild yam, camellia oil, oatkmoss, licorice root, peony flower, and many more. These share the similarities of being antioxidants rich botanical ingredients with its essence many times magnified with the fermentation process. I love having licorice and peony flower here as natural skin brightening ingredients too! Alcohol is listed pretty high up here, which I think is added as a solvent to give this product a lighter consistency. I think it is the fermented ingredients or something in here that itch me out, not the alcohol as my skin is pretty tolerant to alcohol.

PERFORMANCE



This feels like a fragranced mist with skin moisturizing benefits for me. I will take this with me to important dinners and functions, and just give myself some quick spritz whenever my skin is feeling dry or oily. It will immediately rehydrate and freshen up my skin, in a way also lighten up my spirit and soul! When used alone, it cannot replace a standard hydrating toner or essence though so it is not supposed to replace toner in your routine.

CONCLUSION



I love this mist a lot! I love the scent and packaging as well as the portability of this Whamisa mist. It is something that will make you feel good, like a body mist or fragrance that you can also spray on your skin! The texture is richer than Laneige Water Bank Hydro Mist so I normally only use this on damp skin, or when I am outside the house and need a quick spritz. It can lock in moisture better than Laneige but I think Laneige feels much more hydrating and refreshing than this, if you are curious about the difference between the two.

In short, I have found my second holy grail after Laneige Water Bank Skin Mineral Mist! Something that I will keep repurchasing when it is on sales!

Pros:
- smell nice
- travel-friendly, portable and practical design
- uses organic, eco-certified and high quality ingredients

Cons:
- retail price is not cheap for a small size like this (80ml)
- feel a bit sticky
