Mirirang Recovery Spray Toner and Mirirang Repair Cream Review | Korean Skincare With Natural Wheatgrass Extract
Sometime around August, I was sent a package by Mirirang Korea for review. The package contains Mirirang Recovery Spray Toner and Mirirang Repair Cream. I've been using the products since then and have already emptied them now, so I can share my final reviews about them with all of you. They also included face masks and a bar soap from Vispera, I think they are from the same brand but with different a name. I will talk about the Vispera products in my future blog post.
Mirirang is specializing in having special and strong secrete of natural wheatgrass extract in their products to make skin younger.
1. Why is Wheatgrass good?
Wheatgrass contains the various vitamins and powerful antioxidant ingredients that protect the moisturizing factor of the skin, especially carbohydrate, zinc, niacin, rievaulx peullamin, copper, protein, vitamin A, B6, C, E, K.
Also, 8 essential amino acids, 20 amino acids and more than 80 enzymes are abundant in the wheatgrass. It contains vitamin C, 6 times citrus fruits and mineral, 18 times spinach and chlorophyll, 23 times vegetable.
Mirirang toner and cream soothe the surface of the skin, from external layers of the skin that prevent loss of moisture and make the dry skin soft and clean.
2. The Effect of Skin Lightening and Wrinkle Improvement
These products contain niacinamide and adenosine, the elements certified by Korea's Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, to help with skin lightening and wrinkle improvement.
Niacinamide is a skin lightening element that is proved safe and is a water-soluble Vitamin B complex, it prevents skin discoloration, improves skin color and make skin bright and healthy.
Adenosine is used for wrinkle improvement, it weakens aging process in skin to strengthen the elasticity of it and improve wrinkles.
The natural complex components of wheatgrass are tea tree oil, sunflower seed oil and peppermint for extra whitening.
Tea tree oil is extracted from tea tree used to soothe sensitive and irritated skin.
Sunflower seed oil is rich in vitamin and minerals, it helps to retain skin's elasticity and when used constantly, it makes skin soft, vivid and taut.
Peppermint is a grass that provides cooling, it is a plant that is used for food, spice, tea and beauty for a very long time since the Ancient period.
3. Baby Face Secrets; super layers of preventing loss of moisture with nutrients and vitamins
Wheatgrass helps with damaged skin with appropriate moisture and nutrition that are rich in Vitamin A, C, E and phytosterols, bioflavonoid, minerals etc to make the sensitive and rough skin well moisturized and healthy.

Descriptions and directions of Mirirang Recovery Spray Toner and Repair Cream.
Mirirang Recovery Spray Toner(150ml)
I love its packaging. Its body is plastic with sheer green color, you can see the amount you have left with due to its transparency. At the top near the spritzer, it is coated with a light gold color. The wordings are printed and are not stickers. It sprays a massive amount of fine mist.
♥ Wheat is listed 3rd in the list. Since it is high in the list, you can expect it to provide all the wheatgrass goodness that was mentioned earlier.
♥ Niacinamide is listed 4th, unsure about its % but it is high in the list, so you can expect for the whitening functions to work, especially when your skin reacts well with niacinamide.
♥ I personally think that the tea tree, sodium hyaluronate (moisturizing), peppermint oil and adenosine (anti-aging) are low in the list.
The consistency is liquid, since it sprays a massive amount of fine mist, I find it ultra moisturizing. It doesn't smell like wheatgrass but it smells like peppermint. I don't find the smell to be overwhelming. At first I was cautious due to the scent but later I got used to it.
After tapping in the mist, it gives a dewy complexion on the face, it makes my face to look chok chok.
Though it is ultra-moisturizing after spraying, I don't find it to be really hydrating, but you can always mist your face time to time.
I only got to use the toner a couple of times and leave the rest to my body because it broke me out. I didn't get to observe the whitening effects too. Maybe my skin was reactive to something in the toner.
I wouldn't want to use this again since it broke me out but it is a good toner that makes your skin refreshed, moisturized and dewy.
Mirirang Repair Cream(100ml)
Body is sturdy plastic and I like the gold cap!
♥ The Wheat is listed as the 4th ingredient in the cream
♥ Niacinamide is listed a bit far in the cream than in the toner, it is 9th in the list
♥ Has more moisturizing ingredients such as Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil and Echium Plantegineum Seed Oil
♥ And again, the good ingredients (tea tree oil, peppermint oil, adenosine and sodium hyaluronate) are listed at the end of the list
Texture is white rich cream, smells same as the toner (peppermint scent), it is not thick to dissolve and easy to spread.
After massaging it on my face, it gives a glowy complexion, moisturization and hydration. Since it is hydrating, it contributes to its anti-wrinkle claim. As for whitening, I do not notice any difference especially on my acne scars. Besides the only whitening ingredient in the cream that I know of is Niacinamide.
I only get to use the cream for a couple of weeks only since it clogged my pores. It must've been heavy for my oily skin. If you have dry to normal skin types, this might suit your skin better, I used the remaining amount for my body. It always make my body moisturized. It does great for my body but I wouldn't want to purchase this.
Overall it is not a bad cream, it just doesn't suit with my easily clogged skin. It won't clog my pores if I decrease the layers in my skincare routine, but I don't want to use something that clogs my skin. It is a great cream for moisturization, hydration and anti-wrinkle.
As for the price, I think that they are a bit pricey and considering that the main good ingredients are listed very low. I think the price is focused more towards their packaging or the cost and process to obtain the wheat is high.
