The MUJI beauty corner is a place I’ve always wanted to explore but never quite did. I was under the impression that they are cruelty-free, but when I went to Google and double-check, I couldn’t find my source anymore and the top hit was my blog. As such, I’ve decided to revamp my cruelty-free beauty page (it’s in the works!) and reassess my values when it comes to consumption.
I just wanted to quickly share some bits I picked up from MUJI, though. I’m not sure if they’re CF—they have a whole issue of selling shark fin soup (???) which I do not support—so please keep that in mind when reading through this post.
Because of SPF paranoia, I got myself a UV Makeup Base, which has SPF 28 PA++. That’s pretty much all I understand from the packaging, but I tested its color and it seems to be a decent match. I also got two of these Medicated Lip Creams, which were pretty cheap (around ¥ 200ish) and have SPF 12. For lip products, I grabbed this twist-up lip tint (dark pink), which offers SPF 13 PA++, and this refillable lipstick (A53) which actually feels pretty good on the lips. I surprisingly like the latter one tons better, which is kind of annoying because it’s the one that doesn’t have SPF.
To be honest, I have mixed feelings about this post. While everything I picked up was pretty great, I really, truly thought that MUJI’s beauty stuff was cruelty-free. Now, I’m conflicted! Anyway, now you know. In the full interest of keeping things transparent here and whatnot.
