The MU Essential Skin Care Kit is formulated in France and specially designed for this tropical climate. This latest skin care kit from Mary Chia contains 4 vital hydrating products and is suitable for all skin types – Cleanser, Refining Lotion (Toner), Moisturizer and the All-Day UV Defense Mist Spray.
The MU Essential skin care range is the complete advanced hydrating series, developed for keeping the skin soft, supple and healthy in this hot, tropical climate, hence I find that the formulation is rather light-weight and non-sticky on the skin.
MU Essential Facial Wash 50 ml | $98
Although I do like the pleasant botanical fragrance of the cleanser which makes my skin feel fresh after use, it does feel a tad dry on my face and is the product I like least in the entire MU Essential Skin Care kit. Hence, I still switched back to using a gel cleanser which feels more hydrating on my combination skin type.
MU Essential Refining Lotion (Toner) 100 ml | $98
This is a light facial toner spray which not only hydrates and conditions but also helps prepare your skin for better absorption of skin care products when you spray over your face after cleansing, and before applying a moisturizer.
MU Essential All-Day UV Defense Mist Spray 50 ml | $138
The MU Essential All-Day UV Defense Mist Spray is my favourite product to combat the heat and stay hydrated throughout the day. This alcohol-free, all-in-one skin hydrating mist helps tone and cool tired skin and also provides UV-rays damage control by restoring your skin’s natural defenses.
Formulated in France with premium ingredients, the UV defense mist spray protects the skin against environmental stress from harmful UV rays and temperature fluctuations from the strong air-conditioning in our sunny island.
The active ingredients include a blend of hyaluronic acid to provide good skin hydration as well as porphyra umbilicalis extract that repairs damage from UVA/UVB rays. The handy size of the mist spray means that you can carry it around in your bag to the office or gym and use it after cleansing or whenever you feel stressed or fatigued.
The mist spray does dry up rather quickly on my face without leaving any sticky residue behind. This is the ultimate summer must-have, perfect for hot summer days, long flights or constant exposure to an air-conditioned environment.
MU Essential Moisturizer 50 ml | $118
I like the uplifting rose fragrance and light-weight formulation of the MU Essential Moisturizer which provides round the clock hydration and effective moisturization, leaving my skin supple and velvety soft.
The full set of MU Essential Skin Care Kit is retailing at a special price of $338 and is available online and at all Mary Chia, Urban Homme Lifestyle and Wellness Centres.
