Reading: Muji aging care review

volume: 45g

made in: japan

what is it?: an anti-aging night/moisturizer.

Brand Description: This line of muji products contains kamaishi mineral water which is supposed to provide “concentrated” care for dry and aging skin (I have doubts).

supposedly good for: dry + mature skin

What I think: I totally agree as this is very thick and heavy. but do not think that mature skin means that it is an anti-aging cream, it simply helps to replenish oils for more mature skin.

vegan?: no

packaging: plastic tube with metal screw cap.

directions: ”Use after washing face and applying beauty lotion. apply a pearl-sized amount to both cheeks and distribute evenly over entire face with fingertips.” (from muji website).

how do I use it: I used this in the afternoon as directed. I never used this on its own though, I used the smaller part of this (because a little goes a long way and it’s very thick) and diluted it by mixing with the cosrx honey propolis cream (blog post here) and/or the cosrx honey propolis cream. eyes for the face of l’oreal (review here).

-checking these fruit extracts, it appears they have no scientific benefit). Also, putting collagen on the skin seems to do nothing for the skin, but peptides that stimulate collagen production are better for an anti-aging routine.

I’m not really a fan of shea butter, as it makes the product too thick and too occlusive for my taste. of course it is very good for dry skin, but it does not work for my combination skin.

I like the addition of has, but to be honest, it doesn’t really do much to hydrate my skin, as the overwhelming emollient nature of this formula doesn’t really make it feel moisturizing.

sample: as you can see it’s very creamy. it keeps its shape.

texture: it’s definitely more emollient (butterier and less watery) than muji sensitive skin cream (review here). This really reminds me of the innisfree olive oil eye cream (review here), where the texture is like butter (which makes sense since the second ingredient here is shea butter). It’s also that kind of thick like shea butter, so I actually need a spatula to get the product out (it’s that thick).

There seems to be little to no water in here, so the oils really take over this product. I feel like I am applying a thick butter on the skin. i could imagine dry skins actually eating this product as it is almost an ointment.

When applied to the skin, it has a texture very similar to butter.

When applying this to the face, it’s fine to spread, but it takes a while to absorb and doesn’t make my skin feel like it can breathe.

I have to thin this product down, simply because it’s too thick for me. i mix this with more of a watery gel or cream.

it’s almost like a cream paste. but you can see that as it spreads it becomes more translucent and the product itself “softens” as it warms on the skin.

It seems to spread well and I’m not rubbing or pulling this along the skin, but it feels so occlusive, like my skin can barely breathe.

fragrance?: no added fragrance, and it doesn’t smell bad to me. this just has that typical moisturizer smell to it.

good under makeup?: yes, that’s fine

How long have I been using this?: I couldn’t finish this because I found it too emollient/thick for me. so i used this for a month.

the effect?: moisturizing skin (a bit like skin can’t breathe). This didn’t cause acne or pimples, but it didn’t do much for my skin, and there was no difference in terms of anti-aging. I think when the company hints that this is for mature skin, they mean that mature skin types generally prefer very emollient formulas to try to replenish lost ceramides and oils in the skin.
