Mentholatum Mogitate Kaitsu and Deep Moist Lipbalms (Review)

Most of you already knew about this 2 set of Lipbalms from Mentholatum which were launch recently(July) in Singapore. (Before I recieved these.. I already bought one of each at Watsons)

Before I start my reviews... here some the pics spam ^__^
The package took a long time to reach me... they(samplestore) thought that the package was lost.. lolx

Anyway, I pop by post office to collect this box of goodies.

Mentholatum Deep Moist Lipbalm in Menthol and Natural

Ingredients list

Here are some information from the press release::
Price: SD$7.90 at Watsons

Deep Moist was launched in 2008 in Japan and have been doing so good that it quickily became the  top selling lip balms in Japan's lip care market. The success of the Deep moist is due to two main factors. The premium hydrating ingredients at value pricing and it's elegant, ergonomic packaging design.

The Key moisturizing ingredients are:::
  • Hyaluronic Acid:
    A premium ingredient that forms a smooth, moisture locking shield for softer, smoother lips. It can hold up to 6litres of water.
  • Shea Butter:
    Heals the skin and gives a soft, pleasant texture to the lip balm
  • Jojoba oil:
    Gives pro-longed, whole day hydration to the lips.
It's fragrance and color free (Doesn't taste anything also... lolx)

As for the Menthol version... it abit minty(Not as minty as Carmex lipbalm) and it doesn't last long also - just when you close the cap on the lipbalm.. the minty feel was gone! lolx

From the back of the packaging.. it also mention that it contain vitamin E and Avocado oil.

My review:
I have been using the Deep Moist Natural for amonth now. The texture was abit dry(not as waxy or creamy compare to most lipbalm's texture) and it absorb pretty fast. (Don't have the need to reapply also.. Good for me.. cos I'm really LAZY~)

I normally breath thru my mouth(my nose isn't working like normal! lolx.... it's a long story!!) ... so resulting in having dry lips... always have a layer of dry skin near the inner of my lips(see pic..). Can't really see the layer of dry skin.. but can feel it with my tongue. And when it gets really dry.. my lips will cracks(Painful!!!!)

This lipbalm was really moisturizing... I didn't experiences any cracks on my lips.. but I still can feel the layer of dry skin on my inner lips :(   I don't mind at all... as long as they isn't a crack on my lips(no crack no pain)

I'm happy ^__^ (Both Natural and Menthol lipbalms doesn't feel much different)
I like it cos it doesn't feel greasy and it last the whole night (I applied before I sleep.. and when I woke-up, lips still feel moist.) I also love the very simple "no nonsense" packaging! lolx
It's a lipbalm.. as long as it moisture my lips.. it's consider a good lipbalm(right?!?! No???) lolx

Mentholatum Mogitate Kaitsu


Here are some information from the press release::
Price: SD$5.90 at Watsons
Launched in Singapore on 12th July 2010. "Mojitate" means "Fresh" and "Kajitsu" means "Fruits" in Japanese. This juicy lipbalm is bursting with Natural Fruity Goodness and honey.

Mogitate Kaitsu have a total of 5 flavours: 
Orange & Mango
Lemon & Lime
Grape & Berry
White Peach.

(They gave me Strawbery, Orange & Mango and Lemon & Lime) My sister bought the White Peach and she love it so much!)
Mogitate Kajitsu is made with Fresh Fruit Juice which contains essential minerals and vitamins that are beneficial to the lips and body.

It also contains Honey, which heals and renews the lips.
It also contains other moisturizing boosters such as Squalane, Grape Seed Oil, Vitamins A and E. Squalane is easily absorbed, and is similar to the natural oil on our skin. It is extracted from plants and is a highly prized Japanese supplement.

Squalane helps to reduce the wrinkles caused by aging and sun damage. Grape Seed Oil helps to repair skin. Vitamin A & E are antioxidants that retard lip aging, and give lips a healthy shine.

And it also UV protected (Have to thanks the anti-oxidants ingredients which help in preventing sunburn and fight free radicals!)

My review::
When I first apply this (I'm using the strawberry one, cos the ingredients was the same for the other flavours)..
  • feel really creamy..
  • smell really lovely and yummy
  • Feel abit minty! <3 
  • didn't taste anything like strawberry or sweet.... it taste like a taste-less cream(lolx.. I donno how to explain! Anyway, it didn't bother me at all.)

I only apply a thin layer before I went to bed and I woke up with super soft and smooth lips! Yes.. even the layer of dry skin on my inner lips were GONE (OMY.. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!)
Like the Deep moist, mogitate kaitsu lipbalm is quite moisturizing(not as moisturizing as the Deep Moist), creamy and smell good! lolx (The white peach also smell really good!)

And like Deep moist.. it last the whole night too.

I'm not the only one loving the strawberry scent...
Why I look so pale in this pic(the one below)??????
That's buibui(above) and not forgetting peapea ^__^
He's feeling gloomy cos I don't let him lick my yummy lips(lolx)
