7 best fermented skincare products
Continuing to sweep the faces of the Western world is the Korean innovation of fermented skin produce. It’s of course much more sophisticated than walloping a load of yogurt under your eyes; there’s a plethora of probiotic goodies that can help improve the functioning of your skin.
The process, in basic terms, is micro-organisms such as bacteria are added to natural ingredients. Not only to break down the size of the molecules so your skin can drink up the goodness, but the fermentation process can also give way for an influx of new elements like organic acids and other antioxidants that were not previously in the mix.
So without further adieu, below are the best picks to cover each step of your routine if you fancy giving your face the fermented treatment.
Whamisa organic flowers toner deep rich: £33.90,
This toner is indeed a Beast from the East. Whamisa pride their products on diligent research and development. With more than ten years in the biz, this toner has become a cult favourite from the brand. With no water in their products either; it's all killer, no filler. Now, if you haven’t heard of the Korean "7 Skin Method", this is the product to get and try it out with. Basically in this case, it’s layering the toner seven times in succession leaving a couple of minutes in-between each. We of course tried it out and it’s a super treat. Mega moisture with a dewy finish.
This toner has an incredibly unique texture; it’s thicker than a serum and thinner than an oil. It’s wonderfully bouncy and smoothing with a naturally floral fragrance. With aloe vera extract and oat
kernel, it’s a mega moisturising prep before a cream or oil. If you’re after an uber glow or simply to replenish some of that moisture, this is your new go to.
The verdict: Fermented skincare
While each of these are great in their own right, Benton’s Eye Cream is not only great value but packed with a multitude of ingredients that is a great addition to anyone’s kit. Whamisa and Aurelia are also top of the list if you’re after a treat to shake up your routine.
