I LOVE Mizon No 1 Moist King’s Berry Cream. It’s my new favorite moisturizer of choice! King to the Kong is Mizon’s cheeky little monkey (or ape) that has his own line of massive skincare. No, seriously, it is literally massive as everything is two to three times bigger than your average product.
Mizon’s No 1 Moist King’s Berry Cream reminds me a little of something else though!
Seriously, it’s very nearly a dupe for Steam Cream! Although Steam Cream is a little creamier but the tin packaging, the herbal lavender scent, and even the texture is very close to Lush’s own Steam Cream formula.
Only difference is the King’s version is pretty massive at nearly 6 oz.
The moisturizer comes in a cute tin with King’s mug on the back and front. I adore Steam Cream’s whimsical little tins and Mizon’s version is just as cute. Although, I admit, the fact that it comes in a tin makes it a breeding ground for bacteria. Le sigh! But if you can get past that you’ll adore this moisturizer especially if you have drier skin.
Supposedly the cream has whitening and anti-aging benefits and is full of great antioxidants for your skin but the packaging does mean those qualities probably won’t last long sadly.
But I’m really in this for the moisture and this provides in a major way. I typically dislike body washes or cleansers which contain tiny beads. I’ve expressed this numerous times in past posts. King’s Berry Cream does in fact can tiny beads which threw me a little bit for a curve ball at first. But don’t worry they are actually really cool!
The cream has a whipped consistency with a creamy feel and a certain fluffiness to it. Tiny purple beads are suspended within the cream so as you rub they burst and provide more moisture. It’s like…you’re applying moisturizer and a serum at the same time…! As the beads burst they seem to give the moisturizer an injection of serum which allows the cream to glide even more easily onto skin. It absorbs fully, doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or oily, and leaves behind intense hydration so my skin is soft, smooth, and incredibly hydrated after a single application. My drier skin is sucking this stuff up! Loves it! It does have a strong lavender-like scent which I find soothing although the fact the Mizon throws “berry” in all the titles of King’s products does not mean it contains a berry scent 🙁 That’s a reference to the chokeberry which is supposed to be an excellent source of antioxidants for your skin.
If you love Steam Cream I’d say Mizon No 1. Moist King’s Berry Cream is basically the same type of product just on crack!
This one is very muse approved especially if you have drier skin!
