Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Toner and Morning Yogurt

As I've mentioned in my previous post, I got the :
- Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Toner
- Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Morning Yogurt

I've finished both of these by now. Here are my 2 cents about them.

Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Toner

I used this right after I cleanse my face, with a cotton pad to eliminate all possible make-up residue left on my skin. It is very light and watery. My skin felt refreshed and clean, prepping it for serums and moisturizers to absorb better. The texture and after feel reminds me a lot about the Naruko Marjoram Lavender Toner.
This toner have a very light, non-offensive scent that I don't know how to describe. It is not herby nor floral. I assume it is the smell of raw Job's Tears. Like most of Naruko's products, it doesn't break me out. This toner comes in a sturdy plastic bottle that is a nice, deep red color. I absolutely love the packaging.
Did I experience any whitening effects from this? Nope. Maybe I need to use more than 1 bottle to experience any whitening or brightening effects. :X It makes my skin calmer and more even though. I like it because it does what a toner is supposed to do. It just doesn't "WOW" me so I'm not exactly crazy about this toner. It is just 'owkay lor' to me. Will I repurchase? Well, I'll say MAYBE. I give it a 6/10.

Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Morning Yoghurt

I like this morning yogurt better than the toner. I used it as my morning moisturizer. This has a very nice texture that is a pleasure to use. It is a light, white gel that when spread on the skin, feels almost liquid-like. It absorbs beautifully leaving a nice, soft, smooth finish on the skin. No oily or sticky feeling whatsoever. I like the whole experience and feeling of using this.
This has almost no scent (barely detectable). It has a plastic pump bottle with a clear top cover. Simple packaging that I quite like.

My skin feels hydrated in the morning after using the morning yogurt. However, the hydration doesn't last throughout the day if I use this alone as moisturizer (I have oily, dehydrated skin). I have to use something more emollient on top of it to seal in the moisture (like the AMPM Skin Ecological Indoor Defense Cream). I think people with normal skin will like this a lot.
Again, any whitening effects? -__-" Not really. My skin did look brighter and calm the time I'm using this though. It is because my skin is moisturized and happy.
I quite like this moisturizer. Will I repurchase? YES. I give it a 7/10.

Overall, I quite like this line. Not exactly crazy about it because I like the Oil Cut line more as it suits my skin type more. The Raw Job's Tears line is light, hydrating and gentle the skin. Hope my short review helps those of you planning to purchase these.

I know I've been MIA recently and I'm so sorry about that. Arrgghh PROCRASTINATION!! I'll try to be good and update more frequently. ^__^

Until the next post, stay pretty~ XOXO~

  1. I wanted to try this but I still have my Lavendar and Marjoram. Does Naruko break you out? Because I realise when I wear them I got this tiny tiny bumps on my face :( Even after extraction from facial salon. But If I dont use it my face seems to be fine :(

  2. I always have tiny tiny bumps on my face no matter I use Naruko or not. :(
    Naruko doesn't cause big breakouts on me. Most of the days I wake up with calm skin. But, I think the essential oils in Naruko products MIGHT cause those bumps on you. If you are sensitive to those, you can stop usage.. I hope I helped. :)

  3. yeah right? why are the names so epic?

  4. Gosh, the name!!!!! LOL I love Naruko skincare =) I've only used a few of their products but I'm convinced that the ingredients are great! :)

  5. Hahhaha~ Yea I know..
    I love it too~ It's gentle on the skin and the price is reasonable! <3<3<3

  6. so i'm on oily acne prone skin with leftover acne scars/brown spots /hyperpigmentation - i don't know whether to purchase the raw job's tears or the apple seed series for whitening my skin! since u tried the two series, which one did u feel works better? thanks for the awesome reviews!

  7. seems like you have similar skin like mine! I recommend the apple seed range because that one works better for me. Hope I help! :D
