Whamisa Organic Flowers Refresh Mist Review

Whamisa is such an interesting brand. Their packaging is always beautiful (at least to me), and the products feel luxurious. Using Whamisa is an experience that I look forward to, from touching the lovely bottles, often made of glass, to enjoying the scents and textures. Some people may take a more utilitarian approach to skincare, but to me it’s an elaborate act of self love. Even if I had one perfect all-in-one product, I would still want a lengthy 10+ step skincare routine - it’s how I relax and unwind.
Whamisa Organic Flowers Refresh Mist is available on YesStyle (use reward code KBHOBBIT for savings), Amazon (use kbhobbit10 to save on this and anything else sold by Credithink), and iHerb (use CWN6107 to save on your order).
This mist has two layers, yellow and clear, and contains jojoba and yuzu oils to balance sebum production and improve complexion. The two layers work together to deeply hydrate the skin without feeling heavy or greasy. Whamisa Organic Flowers Refresh Mist is made with the brand’s signature fermentation technique using chrysanthemum, lotus, and dandelion flowers.
How to use: Shake the bottle to combine the oil-based and aloe-based layers
Spray over the face and neck from about 6inches away
Can be used under or over makeup, throughout the day, or to lock in moisture at the end of your morning or evening routine
I’m a little boring and use this mist in the evening right before moisturizer or at a toner stage (before serums). I know that there’s some debate on the best time to use oils - over or under moisturizers - but this is the way I like to do it and it works for my skin. Experiment and find what works for yours. Plus, I wouldn’t consider this a true facial oil, because a large part of the formula is aloe-based. And the texture isn’t oily - the mist is richer and more nourishing than some watery toners I have, but it still gets absorbed well and doesn’t feel heavy.
I try to include my best description of the product scent in each review. Unfortunately, right now I do not have a sense of smell at all. And while I’ve been using this for some time, I still always take a “refresher” whiff before typing out my thoughts. Going off of memory, the scent is citrus-like and a little flowery. I did like it. I’m hoping to experience it again in the near future.
I would buy this for the packaging alone. Whamisa really nailed the presentation (no surprises here). Even their cardboard outer boxes are aesthetically pleasing. And I appreciate that the brands provides detailed instructions on which parts of the packaging are recyclable.
Typically, I am not a fan of misting throughout the day, because water-based mists would just cause more transepidermal water loss as they evaporate off the skin’s surface. However, since this one has some oils in it, perhaps using it outside of the morning or evening routine would work. My skin doesn’t need it, so I haven’t tried that. It’s also important to consider that misting anything on the face could disrupt your SPF layer, so you may have to reapply that post-misting. Just something to consider.
I like how fine the mist particles are - I can cover a large area with just a couple of presses on the dispenser. Because of that, I also spray it over my body before using body lotion. It helps keep my skin soft and supple, even the really dry areas like ankles.
I have combination skin with some dry and some oily areas. Whamisa Organic Flowers Refresh Mist hydrates and nourishes without causing any congestion on my oilier t-zone, which is great. The size is carry-on friendly (maybe we will actually travel again). I’m thinking that this will be a godsend in the Fall and Winter when my skin needs all the love and care possible, but so far it’s working great in the warm summer months as well. Definitely worth looking into if you want a toner with an extra dose of nourishment in it.
