MooGoo Review

No Fillers! Review : MooGoo Full Cream

Heyo!  While I’m on a holy war of late against products that are deceptive, or unnecessary, it is also my solemn duty and awesome joy to introduce products that are quite underrated, do not oversell, they totally deserve the mentions!

Today we have a product which can be used as a face/body cream and yes!  It is MooGoo Full Cream from Australia. Here is a brand that is honest with its audience and sincere in its delivery.

MooGoo Back Story

Well, it’s a funny story!  It originated as an udder cream!  That is, farmers used this cream on the udders of the cows to keep it conditioned and to produce healthy milk!  Now, I can’t think of the derma attributes of cows’ udders… gives me the shudders!  >.<

So the story goes, farmers used on cows, and tried on family members, and the rest is history.

The Ingredients

What’s special is, their claims and their strong philosophy on having no fillers in their products.  All ingredients are genuine, their places justified and serve their functions to protect and nurture your skin.  Listed are :

Water (Purified), Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Squalene (Olive), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Hydrolized Milk Protein, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Allantoin (Comfrey Extract), Piroctone Olamine, Polysorbate 60 (Food Grade Emulsifier), Honey, Apple Cider Vinegar, Humulus Lupulus (Hops) Extract.

I admit to not knowing what they all are as I typed them out, but they are starting to sound yummy!  To know more about the ingredients, the very educational website has dutifully explained the functions of most ingredients, not just the key ingredients.  Suddenly the picture just becomes so clear and you would suddenly understand so well about the product you purchase and you are applying on your body.

The Experience

As you can probably hear the excitement from the post how I totally dig this product.  Maybe I just have a boner sweet spot for products without fillers.  You can’t even find a single strand of butylene glycol in there.  What’s unique about this brand is, much like the Paula’s Choice products I own, the website lists the total ingredients.  Not only so, the brand continues to educate consumers on what ingredients do, what are their roles in skincare, they are also honest with their emulsifiers if contain any.  Most products in the world only market the key ingredients, like Piterra from SKII, but what else?

Well, but here’s the deal, despite this product being a “full” cream, it is still pretty light in texture for a body cream.  Across the internet there has been good results as a face cream for dry skin folks, but golly! It is 4.3 out of 5 on makeupalley!

It is quite a “dry” cream as in, the product disappears when you smear it around a bit, like Cetaphil Intensive Moisturising Cream or Atopiclair Cream.  It is best used right after shower, before the natural moisture in your skin disappears into thin air.  Your skin will be hydrated, moisturized but not oily.

The Verdict

Pros –

  • Super healthy ingredients
  • Brand with a conscience!
  • Strong on education, yes, power to the people!
  • Hydrating but not oily
  • Love the packaging, I carry in my bag and much better than a tube, allows for quick dispense when outside.

Cons –

  • Price is a bit steep but you get what you pay for.
  • Dries up somewhat quickly, need re-aplying.  Probably due to its non artificial formula.
  • No Fragrance.  My friend didn’t like the smell.  Smells like a warehouse to some, but disappears quickly.

I bought two of MooGoo cream when I spotted it at a pharmacy.  Knowing my friends’ 2 lovely kids have eczema, I got her a bottle of MSM Soothing Cream, most suitable for sensitive skin, and she has reported satisfied results!  🙂
