Retain Moisture Without The Use Of Preservatives With FANCL’s New Moisturizing Line


fancl moisturizing line

A few months ago, I have received a parcel from FANCL Singapore and it contains the Moisturizing Line products that include two Essences, two Emulsions, two Lotions, a Cream, a box of Mask and two supplements. Oops! Here’s another overdue post again. <grinning>

When it comes to skin care, keeping my skin well-hydrated is ultimately important. It may slow down the skin aging actually. When my skin is well-hydrated, it is more plump and resilient. Fine lines and wrinkles are less visible and my skin’s protective barrier function is healthy and strong. In fact, when my skin is dehydrated, it will tend to appear dull, uneven, dry, flaky, and even saggy. In fact, my skin turns oily when it is dehydrated too.

Despite the warm and humid climate we live in, my skin can get excessively dry due to air conditioning systems at work or even at home. Therefore, it is more than necessary to keep my skin moisturized and radiant.

FANCL, one of the leading skincare brands in Japan, introduced Moisturizing Line that helps awaken skin’s natural power to retain moisture without the use of preservatives. It contains beauty ingredients that support skin’s natural moisturizing function to fight against skin dullness, roughness and dryness.

Do you know preservatives can weaken skin’s barrier function? FANCL’s Mutenka only gives the skin what is truly needs and nothing else. And therefore all FANCL product contain no preservatives and potentially harmful additives, allowing only powerful beauty agents to actively enhance our skin’s natural beauty.

Moisturizing Line uses Purification Process, done through the power of Malvidin (extracted from Mallow and Blue Sweet Pea) to reactivate skin cells and ensure optimal moisturizing results. Malvidin helps to purify skin by removing skin damaging factors, revitalizing skin cells and restoring damaged cells.

With “Advanced Penetrating Nano Capsule Technology”, active beautifying ingredients (Raffinose and Fresh Royal Jelly Essence) are absorbed easily deep within skin layers, giving our skin the ability to remain supple and nourished.

[Review + Giveaway] New FANCL 5-Step MUTENKA Aging Care Line


Recently, I have blogged about the latest FANCL 5-Step MUTENKA Aging Care Line which was launched islandwide on 26th July 2013. I’m glad to have tested the products and I’m now ready to review them. Click here to read the previous post.

The 5-Step Aging Care Line kit comprises of Aging Care Lotion II, Aging Care Emulsion II, Aging Care Essence, Aging Care Cream, Aging Care Mask and Bright Lift Supplement.

Each kit comes with freshness stickers to let me record the date the products were first opened.

Step 1 : Intensive Hydration | Aging Care Lotion II

This Aging Care Lotion II is actually the first and important step in my night skin care regimen. I will soak a cotton pad with the lotion and gently rub the cotton pad over my face in a upward motion to help remove the residue that my makeup remover and cleanser have missed. It also helps to exfoliate the dead skin cells on the surface. I will skip this step in the day regimen. I like this Aging Care Lotion II as it doesn’t contain alcohol. Alcohol can dehydrate the skin, cause free radicals and skin irritation. There are two types of lotions, Aging Care Lotion I is for oily skin and Aging Care Lotion II is for combination, normal and dry skin.

Re-review – New Formulation Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil


I was first introduced to Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil about 10 years ago and it was one of my favorite cleansing products at the time. And I’ve been faithfully using it for a couple of years before switching to different brand later. During the period, there have not been many cleansing oils in the market to choose from and it was quite new in the market too.

FANCL, a leading preservative-free beauty brand in Japan, is considered the first brand I’ve known that contains no potentially harmful preservatives and other additives.

And for that reason, most Fancl products are packed for a 30-day supply; so the product stays fresh to the last drop. To ensure further assurance, the products always carry the manufacturing date together with a freshness sticker and the FANCL Safety Standard (FSS) mark. It is attached to products that meet the standards for safety, trust and gentleness.

Recently, I have received an invitation to review Fancl Mild Cleansing Oil again though I have actually reviewed it before more than 2 years ago. Many thanks to The Sample Store for extending this invitation to me.

Do continue reading as there’s something interesting for you!

Review – FANCL Facial Washing Powder


Fancl Facial Washing Powder, is considered one of the most well-known facial foaming wash in the skincare industry. Completely preservative-free, it does not contain any sodium lauryl sulphate or sodium lauryl ether sulphate foaming agent.

FANCL believes that when preservatives in skincare accumulate on skin, it may cause stress to the skin and may bring about harmful effects such as :

  • Reducing the effectiveness of beauty ingredients
  • Accelerating skin aging
  • Damaging skin cell DNA
  • Promoting the production of immature skin cells, lowering the skin’s natural protection

Product claims

Experience its silky softness as you smooth it on. Feel the bouncy cushioning layer between your face and fingers as the foam works to cleanse away all that dirt and grime, leaving your face feeling smooth and moist all the time.

Ingredient claims

New Fancl facial washing powder now harnesses the power of 3 types of amino acid in its special Amino Hybrid Technology formulation – a Moisture Retaining Amino Acid Cleansing Agent which rids skin of dirt and grime without stripping away its natural moisture; Polyamino Acid which helps to create a creamier, denser foam and Amino Acid (Serine) which makes skin feel wonderfully soft after facial wash.

Foam is commonly perceived as harmful to skin as it is known for robbing moisture from skin, leaving it dry. This is not the case with Amino Acid based facial cleansers.

Harmful Ingredient

Fancl Facial Washing Powder contains potassium myristate, a detergent cleansing agent that is a constituent of soap; it can be drying and sensitizing for some skin types. 


As Fancl Facial Washing Powder consists free of preservatives, it is therefore only available in smaller packaging of 25g and 50g. Freshness period : 60 days once opened and 1 year from manufacturing date if unopened.


  • S$15.00 25g x 1 bottle
  • S$26.00 50g x 1 bottle
  • S$48.50 50g x 2 bottles


I double my cleansing effectiveness with the help of Fancl Facial Washing Puff. It helps to create more creamy dense foam which is smooth over my face. Although it removes dirt effectively, my skin feels dry and slightly tight after use.



Will I buy it again? …… I doubt so!
