If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you would know Miniso is one of my favourite places to spend money in Lagos. I practically leave the store, wondering where my money has gone. They have everything from bags to makeup to household appliances, power banks, phone cords, you name it…
They also have a range of skincare products. After reading Uzzy Mali’s review of their hydrating toner, I went to their store in Maryland Mall to get mine. It was sold out but I got this moisturizing lotion instead.
Keep reading to see if this moisturizer is worth the buy or nah.
Enriched with deep and intensive moisturizing essence. Enhance skin tone. Leaves skin moisturized, supple and smooth.
Usage: Apply appropriate amount of the product to face after cleansing and toner, gently pat for complete absorption.
This lotion comes in a transparent cylindrical plastic bottle with a nice wood-like cap, which makes it look so bougie. I like the dispenser(which is about 0.5 cm in diameter) because it doesn’t dispense too much product. It contains 85ml of product, which is great(especially for the price).
The product itself is white in colour and very light in texture and consistency. It does not have a particular fragrance to it, which is nice.
It absorbs nicely into the skin and doesn’t leave the skin feeling shiny or oily when applied. My skin looks supple after I’ve applied it.
However, I wish this lotion contained SPF. It doesn’t, which limits it to night time only(or daytime, if you prefer to layer SPF on top).
It contains aqua, glycerin and some other humectants as ingredients, which make it a great moisturizer. I also like that it doesn’t contain parabens.
One thing I noticed is that it does contain dimethicone. I did a little research and dimethicone is a chemical in makeup and skincare that smoothes out the skin. It can also clog pores and dry out the skin, making it less suitable for sensitive, oily and acne-prone skin. Check out these facts for and against dimethicone as an ingredient.
I like this lotion a lot especially in combination with my Argan Oil night repair serum. Combined, I call them the moisture bomb. It hydrates my skin really well.
However, it is not of benefit to people with acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation, because it doesn’t contain active ingredients that combat those problems.
I like it as a great night time moisturizer and the last step in my night time skincare routine.
