I recently used up my Skin Food Omija Whitening Spot Cream, actually, I used up almost all of my Skin Food Omija Skincare so I thought it would be a good time to start reviewing it.
Skin Food Omija Whitening Skincare contains a patent-awarded oriental herbal complex with Omija and skin-lightening ingredients.
Omija is a special Korean herbal tea made from Schisandra chinensi. The entire line was supposedly created to include Omija as it has brightening skin benefits.
Here are my thoughts on the Skin Food Omija Whitening Spot Cream.
This is set comes with a jar of Omika Whitening Spot Cream and a massage roller. The massage roller reminds me of a mortar of sorts that you would use to crush herbs. I actually really liked the idea of using the roller to apply the product as it seems an excellent way to aid the product in fully absorbing into my skin.
To use the set you’ll merely apply a small amount of the cream on targeted areas where you have dark spots, hyperpigmentation, etc…pat it into place and roll the massager over the area allowing the product to absorb into skin. Perhaps the roller is completely unnecessary and you can achieve the same effects by patting your skin and giving your own massage using fingers but I generally like the idea of the roller, it just seems helpful.
The cream has a tea-like scent which is very pleasant but also a back note of Skin Food’s more traditional citrus scent that’s used on many of their skincare products. This is water-y gel like cream with a thicker, creamier texture which has a “bursting” effect when it comes into contact with skin and changes to a water-y gel. The cream absorbs easily and leaves skin delicately hydrated with a dewy to the touch finish.
Unfortunately, the cream relies on Omija whiten and not many other effective ingredients to address dark spots. I have some smaller dark areas on my jaw line. It’s not hyper pigmentation but perhaps more sun damage? I’ve successfully brightened them using Philosophy’s dark spot treatment however, prior to using that I was using Skin Food Omika Whitening Spot Cream. I used the entire treatment and sadly the dark spots remained.
Overall, I think this might be a bit gimmicky. Skin Food has some sincerely great skincare products but I do find they promise a lot but deliver very little at times and that would be my experience with Omija Spot Cream. It sounded like an excellent product unfortunately the results were less than stellar.
Skin Food is sold within Korea and a few Asian countries but they do have a shop(s) in California and Skin Food’s Singaporean site ships to the US. Or E-bay sellers also carry the brand just be careful who you purchase from!
Anyone try this spot treatment?
Did it work for you?
