How Could The Five-Flavor-Berry Come and Offer You a Brighter Skin?

a very attractive title right? *LoL

Truthfully, i've just known that there's a Five-Flavor-Berry in my skincare product because it came in their popular name : Omija.

the omija berries

Omija's chinese name, wǔ wèi zi, or five-flavor-berry comes from the fact  that its berries possess all five basic flavors: salty, sweet, sour, pungent (spicy), and bitter (how wonderful is that?). And Chinese's people mostly use it as a traditional medicine. First, they dry it and then brew it to make a tea. Medicinally it is used as a tonic and restorative adaptogen with notable clinically documented liver protecting effects. The primary hepatoprotective (liver protecting) and immuno-modulating constituents are the lignans schizandrin, deoxyschizandrin, gomisins, and pregomisin, which are found in the seeds of the fruit.

I don't know what the relations with brightening skin, but Skinfood add Omija to their Whitening Range. And here's short review of their Gift Set.


Skinfood Omija Whitening Gift Set
(5ml toner and 5ml emulsion)

no tea bag included since it's only 5ml toner and i think they already mixed the tea bag part in toner

The Full Size Product look like this :
Omija Whitening Teabag Toner - 155ml
A toner with a cold-brew dry Omija tea bag and active contents that brightens skin using a patent-awarded Omija herb complex

Omija Whitening Emulsion - 155ml
An emulsion that brightens skin using a patent-awarded Omija herb complex and ingredients producing skin-lightening effects.

My Personal Thought

I like the scent of Omija's toner, sooo refreshing, but yeah it feels like artificial scent. The toner is like another toner, feels light and easily absorbed. Nothing so special but also, nothing bad :)

Omija Emulsion has the same scent, but sheerer. It texture is kinda runny for an emulsion but my innisfree green tea lotion is more runny (will review it later). But, it's feels heavy on my skin and harder to absorb. It's also make my skin more oily after a while. That's why i only use it at night.

Everytime i use it at night (i am not use it everyday), i found out my face is more oily in the morning but also a little bit brighter. Maybe if i use it continuesly, i will get better result :)

Will I Buy The Full Size Product?

i think no, i have oily skin and don't need another helper to make it oilier. I'm waiting for Skinfood's tea tree emulsion now :P
