Mogi Mousse Vegan Skincare Review

An introduction to Mogi Mousse 

Today I wanted to introduce you to a new luxury vegan skincare brand that I discovered via instagram called Mogi Mousse. They create all natural, handmade plant-powered(vegan) skincare goodness  geared towards nourishing dry skin with anti-ageing benefits. Mogi Mousse really stood out to me not only because of their vegan skincare status but because both their creams contain raw unprocessed plant based ingredients. They were nice enough to send me samples of their face cream and body butter. 

Why Unprocessed?  

Leaving ingredients unprocessed allows them to retain their natural nutrients at full blast which translates to maximum nourishment for the skin. The Mogi Mousse Body Butter and Face Cream are created using a base of Raw Organic Shea butter, Organic Coconut oil, and Organic Almond oil. All of which have known benefits for skin hydration and health. 

Raw Shea Butter is rich in unsaturated fats, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamin E and D, provitamin A.

Benefits of Raw Shea Butter: 

  • Reduce Wrinkles and Fine Lines
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Deeply Moisturizing
  • Collagen production stimulating (makes the skin stronger, more supple and younger)
  • Heals Minor Cuts or Burns 

Organic Almond oil is rich in Vitamins A, B and E. 

Benefits of Almond Oil:

  • Easily absorbed
  • Noncomedogenic
  • Anti-aging
  • Anti-inflammatory 

 Coconut oil is rich in fatty acids and     vitamin E. 

Benefits of Organic Coconut Oil:

  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Moisturizing
  • Anti-Aging 

 

Why I love them...

Body Butter

Scented using a citrus all natural blend the Mogi Mousse Body Butter smells heavenly, it was the first thing I noticed with I opened it. The scent reminds me of sweet fruit flavored cereals. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this body butter, I was really intrigued by it's simplicity and  freshness. I had in the past used  body butters that used a shea butter base but they left me with a heavy film on my skin that I know realize was caused by not the shea but the fillers that were put into the formula that do not absorb into the skin. Mogi Mousse skips fillers and gives you all the good stuff. These natural oils sink right into the skin and do not leave the skin feeling greasy instead it immediately softens and smoothes the skin to the touch with lasting hydration.  The texture of the butter is that of a  whipped,  dense cream. 

Earlier in the post I mentioned healing minor cuts and burns under the benefits of Raw Shea Butter...well I happened to accidently burn myself on a pot my mother had put in the oven right on my forearm and man did that hurt. It did give me an opportunity to test out this claim and I can confirm it absolutely works! I applied the Body Butter directly to the burned area and it quickly soothed my burn and prevented it from blistering. When I woke up the next day it looked like it had happened a week ago, no skin was raised or tender.  All natural magic!  

I recommend the Mogi Mousse Body Body for anyone who enjoys having smooth, soft skin and wants to leave the body grease behind. 

Face Cream

The Mogi Mousse Face Cream is scented with a more subtle blend of essential oils that make a soothing floral aroma. The texture of the face cream is much lighter than the butter and it melts into the skin just as easily. 

If you have dry skin or combination dry skin you will rejoice after you using this cream. It's simple yet effective blend of natural oils sink into the skin and provides moisture to the skin all day.  I've worn this under makeup and it performed beautifully. I just love the Mogi Mousse Face Cream so much. While my acne has mostly cleared up I still consider my skin acne-prone and have always struggled with finding a moisturizer that will really hydrate the dry areas of my skin and lock in moisture without clogging up my pores and this cream performs amazing in suiting my needs. Its really a miracle cream, keeps the areas of my face prone to dryness soft and moisturized and does not clog my pores. 

Like the Body Butter the Face Cream does not leave the skin greasy when used correctly. I scoop out about a pea and a half size out and rub it in my palms melting the oils and press it on to freshly washed skin. It is divine. Even if you have oily skin you can use it in the evening as a night cream as well to received its anti-aging benefits and wake up with softer skin. 

I recommend the Mogi Mousse Face Cream again to anyone those of us who suffer regularly from dry skin, but I don't think those with oily skin should sleep on it. Properly moisturising oily skin can help reduce the excess oil production and balance out the skin. 

Overall Mogi Mousse gets two thumbs up from my skin and I'm so glad I got the chance to try out their amazing products. Purchase yours at www.mogimousse.com/
