Muji Sensitive Skin Toning Water (High Moisture) Review

Introduction to Muji Sensitive Skin Toning Water

There are four skincare lines from Muji: Sensitive Skin, Balanced Skin, Aging Care and Organic Series. We’ve previously reviewed the Sensitive Skin Moisturising Milk. In this review, however, we will be discussing the pros and cons of the Muji Sensitive Skin Toning Water.  
From delicious snacks to clothing, stationery and furniture, no-frills Japanese label Muji is known for its good quality products and reasonable prices (for the most part). Fun fact: Did you know that Muji’s Japanese name translates to “brand-free quality products”?




However, it seems like their made-in-Japan skincare products aren’t as known or well-received as their other retail products. In our opinion, that’s a real pity, because those who have tried Muji’s skincare will know how simple yet effective the products are for maintaining a healthy and clear complexion. That probably explains their motto: “Daily skincare for everyone”.

Outlook & Mobility

On the bright side, It comes in a minimalist and uniform packaging, no unnecessary fluff. The product is available in various sizes, including travel-friendly options. In addition, the smaller bottles are especially useful if you would like to try the range without investing in a full-sized product.

However, do read the English labels carefully as the product names are not immediately obvious. For example, the Toning Water comes in three versions: Light, Moisture and High Moisture. However, all three bottles look roughly the same if you are not looking closely.  

Benefits of the Muji Sensitive Skin Toning Water

This products is made in Japan, known for its carefulness in choosing ingredients that are skin-friendly. The Toning Water (High Moisture) is especially suitable for men with sensitive skin that feels dry easily. Also, as mentioned earlier, the Toning Water (High Moisture) comes in three versions: Light, Moisture and High Moisture. We recommend either the Light or Moisture if you live in a humid and tropical climate. High Moisture is more suited for drier seasons or when you feel like your skin needs a moisture boost..

One of the main ingredients in the Toning Water is natural water drawn from a cave in Kamaishi, Iwate Prefecture in Northeast Japan. The ultra-soft mineral water has been naturally filtered for years, and penetrates comfortably into the skin without irritating it. The Toning Water (High Moisture) is also free from artificial colouring, mineral oils, parabens and alcohol. It is also allergy-free to any type of skin. 


The products from the Sensitive Skin range are fragrance-free, and are pleasant to use as they have little to no scent.


Light and watery, the moisturiser is easily absorbed into the skin.


Squeeze out an appropriate amount and rub it between your palms for a bit before patting it onto freshly cleansed skin.


Muji’s Sensitive Skin Toning Water (High Moisture) is an effective and wallet-friendly option. It helps to combat dry skin especially in hot and humid environments. The gentle formulation also makes it a travel must-have as it won’t stress your skin out further. Jet lag and dry air are bad enough!
