Hello beauties, I wanted to share with you a lovely artisinal skincare brand from California, and their unique beauty inspirations using ancient Chinese Medicine and traditions. 5Yina is a skincare line that adjusts their skincare ingredients within their beliefs of five seasons, so with every bottle and seasonal changes, your product is unique in its own way. I had the opportunity to review their latest treatment – Divine Mask.
“5” represents the holistic view of five seasons and elements in Chinese Medicine and “YINA” came from the perfect combination of the two founders’ names: Harmony (怡 -Yi) and Beauty (娜- Na). 5YINA is more than skincare- they are about cultivating a healthy mind and body through harmony with nature.
Their skincare products are truly one-of-a-kind that use the principals of Chinese Medicine to formulate modern skincare with traditional wisdom. Using a unique R&D process, a product takes two years to release. For maximum therapeutic effects for their formulation 5Yina employs artisanal extraction methods in house and only produce in small batches with strict quality control standards for their beauty oils. Their sheet mask was formulated by 5Yina but made by their Ecocert partner lab in Taiwan. Each limited edition 5YINA product is personally hand blended and crafted according to the lunar and seasonal cycles in order to capture the living energy of botanicals. Sounds amazing isn’t it? Having a facial mask obsession, I received their new Divine All Seasons Bio Cellulose Sheet Mask and mini Spring Beauty Oil.
First off, lets talk about the packaging -absolutely stunning! The classic floral wrapping with gold detailing..uh..I’m such a sucker for pretty things. The sheet mask, when unwrapped was folded and protected with two films on each side. The mask was very saturated in a milky botanical serum which I knew I would love. A good sheet mask that’s drenched, sounds perfect to me. This luxurious and gentle collagen mask is infused with a synergistic complex of bio-adaptive herbs & skin-firming peptides to plump and illuminate the skin. The specifically formulated bio-cellulose sheet mask with potent botanicals, intensely hydrates, protects and brightens all skin types, especially those with dry or aging skin concerns.
How to use: Gently open packaging and unfold mask. Sheet mask is already cut out, so that when you apply it to your face you can easily align it to your eyes, nose and mouth. Apply gently and smooth mask onto face so that it sticks on skin. It’s recommended to leave mask on for 15-30 mins…I left it on for an hour. I wanted to enjoy every minute of this potent holistic formula simmering into my skin. Remove mask & massage any remaining serum into face and neck. Voila!! After just one application my skin was visibly silkier, luminous and glowing!

Just a few drops changed the way my skin felt and looked! I would love to try the full size next time and review for you..so keep you posted.
I’m all about traditions as having an Asian husband, I have learned my fair share of “we are what we eat.” Asian culture believes we radiate what we put into our bodies, a healthy diet is very important. I’ve savoured years of aunties healthy broths and tonics-even after giving birth. This is why 5Yina really intrigued me and I had to review their holistic product. I believe that their unique medicinal technology is truly the perfect compliment to your skin’s principles.
