Mizon No 1 Moist King’s Berry Cream Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Mizon Moist King's Berry Cream

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!

Steam Cream!

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 πŸ™ 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!

It’s available from E-bayer F2PLUS1 as well as from F2Plus1’s new online shop at

    Wow, seems like mizon have really good products =)! I’m actually adsicted to the mizon snail recovery gel :d.

  • Diana

    This line sounds pretty awesome. I might try it if I ever run out of my old skincare stock. This and the toner are the most appealing. The texture of the cream kind of reminds me of Nivea creme, which also has a fluffy, whipped texture but without little beads in it. Have you tried Nivea creme before? πŸ˜€

    • the Muse

      on my body yes but not my face Diana, people swear it makes a good facial cream.

      • Diana

        ooh, I actually have a tin of the German formula one that i got off of ebay. I will try it on my face when the weather becomes drier/cooler. i wish the scent was lighter/nonexistent though.

    I think Steam Cream is actually a Smith’s product…not LUSH. Too many brands out there, so easy to get confused!

      • Linda

        REALLY? I’m a Lush addict! How did I not know that???? Thanks for the new knowledge, Muse! I learn so much from your blog. Going to check out Steam Cream right now!!!!

        • the Muse

          mmmhmm…basically steam cream is an amped up version of Dream Cream. I did an interview with Alison from Lush years ago about the cream. (link is embedded in this post) πŸ™‚

    Hi Muse! Would you recommend this or the Aqua Step Up Cream from this collection?
    I’m in need of a new day & night moisturizer and reading your reviews, both of them seem perfect for my dry skin but I don’t have enough money to splurge on two products. Thank you!!

    • the Muse

      i would chloe because the aqua step up has more of a sticky dry down, it disappears after a few moments but I find this is a nicer texture and I think it is more moisturizing than aqua step as well! I hope this helps!?

      • Chloe

        Thank you so much for the quick respond! ^^ I’ll definitely purchase this for when winter arrives. Thank you again! πŸ™‚

  • Tellatella

    If I have oily skin with some dry areas on my face, would you recommend this moisturizer or the aqua step up version? I am looking for something moisturizing, but won’t leave a greasy residue or make me oily?

  • S

    Hiya Muse, I’m a fan of SteamCream (and their dupes) too~! I used to depot them into those travel pots/tubes for daily use using those plastic pudding spoons or spatula if I have any. Solve the tin problem so far.

    The tins are cute, but no way I’m lugging those in my bag…

  • Elf

    Hi Muse, i was reading your cream reviews looking for a good winter-time cream which made me wonder..
    Do you have any recommendations for winter-time moisturizers for oily skin?
    Mine gets so awfully tight-feeling already now in october, but the t-zone is still oily and blackhead-prone, so finding one that doesn’t make half of my face angry is such a difficut task T.T
    Any suggestions would be awesomely appreciated !!

  • invaderzim

    hi muse!! i just read your MIZON RETURNING STARFISH CREAM review and this one MIZON NO 1 MOIST KING’S BERRY CREAM I was wondering which of the two would you recommend? i have dehydrated skin so I don’t know which one would be the best for me?? thanks!! ps. I really love your reviews

    • Isabella Muse

      Either one is excellent for drier skin invaderzim! Both have great formulas that tackle dry, duller skin! πŸ™‚
