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.
Step 2 : Nourishment | Aging Care Essence
Aging Care Essence, the star product of the range, acts as a serum and infuses my skin with essential nutrients and moisture such as HTC Collagen, Jujube Fruit Extract, Hydrolysis Yeast, Fresh Moist Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Centella Asiatica Extract and Early Harvest Kiwi Extract to intensively repair and strengthen damaged collagen. After using for about two weeks, I notice a superficial improvement on my skin. My skin appears less dull and more hydrated. Fine lines on my forehead seems less visible too. I use the essence in both day and night regimens.
Step 3 : Lifting | Aging Care Mask
This Aging Care Mask is an unique mask that is designed with “lifting” effect that adheres perfectly on my skin.
As the mask is designed with an additional portion at the bottom, I can actually stretch the mask and wrap around the jawline and chin area. I like the lifting effect on the areas.
Due to aging, the corners of my mouth begin to droop downwards, I’m glad that this mask able to treat the areas.
The formulation is gentle to the skin and the mask is safe to be used on the eye areas too.
After applying the mask on the face for 15 minutes, my skin appears smoother, more hydrated and tone, thanks to its potent ingredients that boost my moisture level, promote collagen production and repair damaged collagen deep beneath. Due to my busy schedule, I only manage to use the mask once a week (twice will be more ideal). So far, I’ve used 2 pieces of masks.
Step 4 : Seal in Moisture | Aging Care Emulsion/ Aging Care Cream
Both Aging Care Emulsion and Aging Care Cream are moisturizers. Hence I use the emulsion in the day and cream in the night. The emulsion has an ultra lightweight texture that doesn’t leave any greasiness upon application. It is definitely very suitable to be used in the day. I actually like the rich creamy texture of the cream that glides on the skin easily. Thanks to the HTC Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid that replenishes my skin’s moisture while I sleep. My skin appears radiant and smooth on the next morning.
Step 5 : Inner Care | Bright Lift Supplement
This Bright Lift Supplement is an ideal oral supplement that complements to the Aging Care line. It is claimed to be especially suitable for those who are 35 and above, with aging and photo-aging concerns. It helps support collagen production with 3 key ingredients : HTC Collagen for firmness and softness, Apple Polyphenol to prevent photo-aging and strengthen skin collagen, and Silybin to remove old collagen trapped in skin, restoring skin’s radiance. So far, I have consumed the supplements for a week now. My skin appears less yellowish and dull. My skin feels more hydrated. too. Each pack comes in a 30-day supply (180 tablets, take 3 tablets 2 times per day)
