You can read about my review here. Many people thought that the smell would be strong, but it actually smells nice like sesame seeds after mixing with rice bran and water.
Camellia oil is actually called "Tsubaki"(椿) in Japanese, and is commonly sold at all pharmaceutical shops in Japan, mainly for hair care. You can get them too in Singapore at Ikeda Spa, Isetan supermarket or Tokyu Hands.
Here's how you pick the jellies:
- Peach for hydration
- Rose for whitening/anti-pigmentation
- Melon for anti-aging
It is recommended not to intake more than 2 sachets a day.
I bought Aojiru from 2 different brands before when I was studying in Japan but I got lazy to drink them after some time because they were not finely milled and the mixture with water was simply too powdery for me to drink. One of the participants asked if it is similar with fermented drinks and my answer is NO, Aojiru is not fermented drink. Aojiru is young barley grass and you consume mainly for its fibre (they have other nutrients too, but I feel it is secondary benefits). It is useful for people who don't eat a lot of vegetables and have digestive and constipation problems.
Koplina had mixed mulberry leaves and matcha inside, so it actually tasted rather nice.

I had a great day learning new things about skincare, tasting (exotic?) healthy recipes, making masks with other participants and walking away with my bird's nest. The express 10min scalp massage before the workshop was also very relaxing!
