Mizon No 1 King's Berry Aqua Step Up Cream 2

Here’s another massive pick from Mizon’s King of the Jungle! Meet the Mizon No 1 King’s Berry Aqua Step Up Cream, a massive moist up gel moisturizer to get skin soft and hydrated.

This is 10 ounces of the King’s favorite moisturizer….phew!

Mizon No 1 King's Berry Aqua Step Up Cream

I’m always fascinated how HUGE Mizon’s King of Kong products are. Seriously, you can hydrate a country with this much gel moisturizer.

This is a whitening, anti-aging gel moisturizer sans parabens and mineral oil. It contains awesome ingredients like Niacinamide and Glycerin to brighten and moisturizer skin. It’s rather a great product to follow up with after using Mizon Mizon King’s Berry Aqua Drink Toner.

This is a bright blue shade and contains smaller moisturizing beads. I was worried about the beads but the texture doesn’t feel gritty when applied nor do I feel like I’m chasing those beads around my face. They simply to absorb as soon as I applied the moisturizer. It is scented with a herbal lavender-like scent. I find it absorbs fairly fast but has a stickier set kinda like Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid. This isn’t pleasant at first but it disappears after a few minutes.

It’s SUPER hydrating so a little goes a very long way. I’d recommend it for drier skin but oily skin will find it isn’t heavy nor does it leave any excess grease or oil behind on skin. I wouldn’t recommend it for daily use but more nightly for the best benefits.

If you’re skin is in need of extra moisture you’ll find Mizon No 1 King’s Berry Aqua Step Up Cream a VERY hydrating experience.

It’s available now from E-bay seller F2Plus1 or online from F2Plus1’s new shop at

    I’ll have to try this…i love gel moisturizers, especially since this one doesn’t have mineral oil. I just used up my sample of philosophy’s take a deep breath and I loooove it!

    I really want to try this (And the toner)! The packaging is so cute! I am just waiting to “sneak”this into the overabundant mountain that is my makeup/product collection. Do you find that most of the Korean sellers on Ebay are legit? I tried to purchase some Shills BB cream on Ebay, but received a fake last year. The seller was from China, so I should have known better….

    I love how super-sized these products are. Since getting Korean (any Asian) skin care product is such a hassle, this will make it easier for me to not have to constantly stock up and therefore I’ll prolly end up getting this. Also, gel moisturizers are great for people with super oily skin such as myself.

      agree gloria it’s a nice way not to pick up essentials often and have to pay for shipping!

    I can’t decide between ordering this moisturizer or reordering the HadaLabo cream. Does the Mizon cream have a smell?
