For most of my life, my skin has been quite fickle. Ever since puberty, I’ve had to constantly battle breakouts, blackheads, and discoloration. I figured these problems would go away once I became an adult, but hey – turns out the skin can just get worse as an adult!
These were the bulk of my skin problems until I turned 28 years old. I don’t know if I just didn’t notice before (or I was in a deep state of denial), but it seemed as though 30 hit me before I hit it – saggy skin, smile lines, and droopy skin around the eyes plagued my existence. Awesome.
I’ve tried everything in the book for skincare short of seeing a dermatologist – DIY treatments, the Korean 10-step beauty routine, straight-from-the-earth organic, straight-from-the-lab chemicals, supplements, birth control, no makeup, all the makeup – but my skin would not budge.
One method I’d avoided, however, is the world of “quick-fix”. For some reason, the idea of drinking a magic tea or swallowing a magic pill intimidated me. Perhaps it was from all the detox horror stories I have read during my never-ending research, but I just assumed it wouldn’t work for me, and I had moved on.
So, when I heard about OMONO, I will admit I was a little skeptical. A strange Japanese magic powder that claimed it could “turn back the clock” on my skin? Reading a little deeper into it, however, I became intrigued.
Created by scientists and beauty experts in Japan, OMONO is vanilla-flavored supplement powder that you put into any drink once a day for two weeks. Its all-in-one formula works to penetrate the skin from the inside-out, promising better elasticity, antioxidation, an overall improvement in skin radiance. It’s been approved by the GMP and HACCP (info here), which means it’s completely safe for consumption. Being a human, I felt pretty good about that! Not to mention that they offered a 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee if you weren’t satisfied, so I knew I wasn’t being duped. So, I decided to give it a try.
OMONO arrived super quickly – about a week after ordering. I am in love with the packaging. Let me be candid for a minute – I am a huge anime nerd, and the more girly and pastel-looking the anime or manga is, the better. So, I’ll admit that the boxing alone gave me a bit of a bias towards trying it.
While the brand claims you can add the powder to any drink – including water, juice, and milk – I stuck with adding it to coffee or tea for the two weeks. It’s so simple to use – just open the packet, pour it in and stir! I didn’t even have to think about it after a couple days – it was just like adding cream or sugar to my tea. It quickly fit in nice and snug with my morning routine.
If you’re a fan of vanilla lattes, you will adore the smell of this. It tasted so. Freaking. Good. I didn’t have to go to my local coffee shop to get a sugary espresso fix for the entire time I used OMONO’s skincare routine – the taste alone was perfect for me (my wallet was quite happy as well – this skin supplement costs less than $2.50 a day). No chemical scents, and no artificial sugary after-taste; just straight-up vanilla every morning.
After Two Weeks
I was incredibly impressed and surprised by the results. While I enjoyed drinking it every morning, I admit I had skepticism the entire time on whether or not it would actually work. OMONO must have sensed that because it kicked my skin’s butt in the best way.
My skin felt way tighter and had better elasticity (thanks to the collagen), and it had a gorgeous glow I didn’t think pasty Brit girls like me could ever achieve. Because of this, I noticed my smile lines had faded quite a bit as well! Interestingly enough, I also felt as though I had more energy – I tend to be a very sleepy gal, so this was a welcomed side-effect (I’m guessing this was due to L-Cysteine and the general vitamins included in the mixture – both of which have antioxidizing effects).
The aspect I was most excited about, however, was what it did to my other skin problems. OMONO doesn’t claim it fixes acne, but my skin definitely did feel smoother. I felt as though I finally had found something that could actually fix my skin with such a simple step.
I am back to my regular skincare routine of cleanser, toner, acne serum, and SPF moisturizer, but I will definitely be keeping OMONO in my daily rituals. The fact alone that my skin felt so much more energetic is enough for me to continue using it. So, if you’re fed up with what seems to be endless options of skincare solutions out there, I highly suggest you give this a try. You’ve got nothing to lose – except some of your skin problems!
