Naruko Raw Job's Tears

Naruko came out with the Raw Job's Tears line not long ago. I just finished my toner and day moisturizer during that time so I bought:
1) Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Toner
2) Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Morning Yogurt

Before I proceed with my thoughts about these 2 products, let me share about what I found out about Job's Tears. I have no idea about what is Job's Tears until I researched about it. :P
I'll talk about Raw Job's Tears in this post and leave the review for another post because if not, it is going to be one long ass post..

(information taken from wikipedia)
Job's Tears, sometimes referred to as Coix Seed, is a tall, grain-bearing tropical plant often used for it's medicinal and curative properties in parts of Asia. Sometimes you can see it misleadingly sold as 'Chinese Pearl Barley' in Supermarkets although it's not really in the barley family.
Job's Tears
The whole processed Job's Tears is called 'yi mi' in Mandarin or 'yi mai' in Cantonese.

Raw Job's Tears is simply raw, unprocessed Job's Tears which have a slightly reddish color outer bran (thus the red packaging). The raw version of this stuff contains even higher concentration of antioxidant and is even better for the skin than processed Job's Tears.

Raw's Job's Tears main function is to encourage healthy skin and even out skin tone. Niu-Er also mentioned that this Raw Job's Tears line contained an ingredient named Phytosphingosine which specializes in targeting deep hyper-pigmentation (hyper-pigmentation is often mistaken as acne scars. Actually, hyper-pigmentation are the dark marks left over from our acne)
Phytosphingosine works by protecting the inner layer of our skin and preventing hyper-pigmentation from forming after we have acne thus make it very suitable for acne-proned skin. That's why Niu-Er called it "whitening from the inside" or "360 degree whitening"(directly translated from Mandarin).

Unfortunately, it doesn't help much on existing deep hyperpigmentation which only can be corrected through laser treatments. The main idea about this line is to prevent hyperpigmentation and achieving whitening, moisturizing, anti-aging, repair and soothing effects.

The Job's Tears Range consists of :

Researching about all these made me very interested to try out the Raw Job's Tears line.

I've finished those 2 products by now. I'll post more about what I think about these at my next post.

Thanks for reading~

Until the next post, XOXO~
