We Put MUJI’s Skincare Range To The Test

We Put MUJI’s Skincare Range To The Test

Without a doubt, MUJI has a very special place in the hearts of minimalistic storage and stationary-obsessives far and wide. But it’s definitely not the first place we’d turn to when seeking out new skincare lotions and potions. Until now, that is.

You see, a few months back MUJI relaunched its skincare line, and the simple yet functional nature of the products immediately caught our attention.

Designed to give your skin a mega boost in nourishment by adding moisture and preventing dehydration, all the formulas are water-based and infused with natural ingredients like hyaluronic acid. In turn, they ensure your complexion is in tip top condition to help perform functions like making collagen and repairing damage.

So we swapped out our usual cleansers, toners and face masks in favour of putting MUJI’s to the test for a bit. And we totally didn’t expect them to work as well as they did…

I’m usually one for a gel cleanser, but this cream formula may have converted me. Packed with natural extracts, it removed all my makeup within a few swipes of a cotton pad and left my complexion feeling smooth, refreshed and super soft.

The recent change in weather has left my skin a little on the dry side, but after using this toner for a few days it was TOTALLY back to its usual self. While I’m not usually one for toning in my daily regime, if I suffer from a parched complexion again, I’ll definitely be digging this little bottle out – it works hydrating wonders.

Mask it
I popped one of these thin cotton sheet masks on to my face post-cleanse and woke up glowing – they are doused in a hard-hitting formula that hydrates and soothes sensitive skin. It’s a quick, easy and mess-free way to give your complexion a boost in moisture once or twice a week – and they’re definitely going in my hand luggage to save my skin post-flight this summer.

With a combination of calming chamomile and rose alongside hyaluronic acid, pop this on under your daily moisturiser for an extra boost in hydration. The watery, gel-like consistency is ideal if you suffer from oily skin.
