There was a time I love ardently with anything marked for sensitive skin. Muji makeup base comes with UV protection, fragrance free, contains no mineral oil and no UV absorbant. Instead of using it for makeup, I treat this as tinted moisturizer.
I don’t have oily skin and spend most of my time in air-conditioned environment, sometimes skin condition varied from combination to dry or severely dehydrated within few hours according to the environment. Oilier skin moment can be easily tackled by patting loose powder on, while sudden dehydrated skin certainly need something moisturizing, and any powder is NO. Then this Muji makeup base serves as good foundation in the situation.
The thick and moisturizing consistency reminds me of Korea BB cream in fact. Indeed, the finish of this Muji make up base is also quite close to BB cream. No remarkably coverage, skin looks subtle brighten up and more even up. Small amount needed for natural radiance finish due to the moisturizing consistency, applied too much possibly comedogenic for my combination skin and end up with “Gasper” skin, partly adding up with the white residue of sunblock.

Because it’s quite moisturizing for oily to normal skin, so it’s also not ideal for sebum controlling. It also didn’t cause me breakout since I use it occasionally only, but sometimes 1-2 clog pores if I used heavy moisturizer underneath.
In my opinion, MUJI Make up base for sensitive skin is gentle and comfortable to use although it used up quickly and not moisture enough for drier skin. For THB595/30g, this is worth to re-purchase if I want a tinted moisturizer in summer.
