Full name: Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Repair Night Cream
Another sadly discontinued item from Naruko that I adore. :(
Description - quoted from online source
Naruko Magnolia Brightening and Firming Repair Night Cream is enriched with magnolia which offers excellent anti-ageing and firming effects.
It is the solution to those women trying very hard to combat signs of ageing. The night cream helps you to repair your skin while you are aslepp. Magnolia resembles a key to the youth, helping the skin to travel back to the time machine, leaving it look younger, more translucent and firmer than ever before.
Suitable for - dry and delicate skin / mature skin
Can't find a clear list to refer to, if you're interested you can check out this link. COSDNA is a brilliant Chinese site which document and teach readers about cosmetic ingredients.

APPLICATION : 5/5
PACKAGING : 5/5
PRICE: 3/5 - not cheap in Naruko standard.
The first remark to give has to be its aroma. It smells of fresh and natural flowers, maybe Magnolia(?). Also has a slight citrus scent, probably also notes of the flowers. *same as the serum reviewed before*
Texture is a gel cream. Lean towards the light side, is fast-absorbing and instantly make skin feel and look better. Very good for layering, I can wear several serums beneath it, and then also put on a thicker cream/balm on top if extra moisture/nourishment is needed.
I love skin care in glass jars, because this means the product will be better kept and ingredients more stable. It also comes with a good little spatula if you don't want to contaminate or ruin the contents - which I don't mind. :D
Younger? Not sure.
Translucent? Yes, I'd say I do notice my skin clearer and more glowy
Firmer? Yes, but slightly only. My facial puffiness is usually due to inadequate sleep and water retention.
- Not enough to be used alone in dry Winter nights, or when I sleep with air-conditioner on.
- Slightly more expensive
Overall Rating: 22/25
Recommend? Yes for those who need some have 1) dry 2) delicate 3) mature skin. The scent is really adorable, and the texture is really nice.
Repurchase? No, reason below.
I can no longer find this on any official website - but you can probably still buy this off online beauty stores or ebay sellers. As of today, imomoko.com still stocks it. Personally I won't repurchase because I have dozen more night moisturisers to work with.
