Naruko Magnolia Brightening and Firming Cream Wash

Naruko Magnolia BF Cream Wash 1


I have dehydrated skin. Finally I have liberty not to sleep in air-conditioned room, because I have dehydrated skin. Probably I was now living in more humid Malaysia, perhaps sleeping in non-air conditioned room helped to minimize dehydration, I found my skin became less problematic nowadays. Less skin sensitivity, and less drying thus skin hardly has uncomfortably tightness and stingy sensation anymore.

Apart from environment factors, cleansing is one of my very important steps in skin care. I like concept of amino acid surfactant so I intended to try more cleanser from Naruko. Since I purchased Naruko product online, I didn’t get chance to examine the ingredient list before purchase, I simply trusted the marketing words and assumed the same for all their cleansers.

This seemed like a good foaming cleanser because it has additional soap-based surfactants also. Somehow I was disappointed of it foaming power later. Of course it foamed slightly better than amino acid surfactant, caused squeaky clean feeling when using more amount (roughly 1.5 – 2cm) that led to drier skin, but rather mild feeling when I used less amount (< 1cm) that I felt the skin wasn’t cleanse thoroughly.

May be this is a little more creamy, apparently the mousy fluffy texture has no much difference with other Naruko facial cream cleansers. It has mild floral fragrance of Naruko Magnolia collection. However, I apologize for no Cleansing Test for this review. The cleanser deteriorated and had been tossed before I can take a cleansing test and show you some pictures here.

I wanted to perform the Cleansing Test when it still has 10% left in tube. Guess the cleanser didn’t close tightly? The fragrance changed weirdly when I left the cleanser unattended in bath room for 2 weeks. Nevertheless, you can still refer to other Naruko cream cleanser (Rose or Narcissus) reviews for some general idea. I believe this has similar mild cleansing power too.

Overall this is not my favorite so I’m unlikely to buy another tube. It has same pricing with Hydrating Rose and Age-Defense Narcissus cleansers hence I thought RM29/120ml has more value for Firming & Brightening Magnolia… just the outcome wasn’t as expected. Firming & Brightening? Sorry, I didn’t notice the result either.


Rating: … )))  so-so  So-so. Will not buy again.

HI Nami,

Happy New Year to you too 🙂

I normally order online via Naruko M’sia, the price will be cheaper than the retail price in SG.
