REVIEW: Mukti Hydrating Cleansing Lotion
Week 4: 100 Days of Pure Living – Skin care
This week I’ve been test driving Mukti Hydrating Cleansing Lotion & Tinted Moisturiser with sunscreen. Mukti products are sustainable, ethical, 100% vegan, organic and have absolutely zero chemical nasties. Multi uses native extracts that are sourced locally in Australia and support the Indigenous communities that harvest them. I have been wanting to try the Mukti skincare range for a while and week 4 of #100daysofpureliving is finally here! See my review below.
I am lucky enough to live in Maleny on the Sunshine Coast where the Mutki store sells direct to the public! I popped in there and picked this delicious hydrating cleansing lotion for $54.95. Mukti products are also sold at my local co operative and you can find them in beauty spas, organic shops and health food stores.
As per the directions on the bottle, I washed my face with this hydrating cleansing lotion morning and night for one week. I wet my face with warm water and used two to three pumps of product to wash my face and remove my makeup. I didn’t need any makeup remover to take off any excess, all the makeup was gone! The formulation is creamy and soothing and actually quite moisturising. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft and not dry and tight like some face wash can. The scent is light and fresh and it doesn’t make my eyes sting or burn.
The 200ml bottle is made from miron glass with a pump top (glass in the shower makes me nervous although the website states it does not break easily). This special violet glass packaging works by filtering harmful rays of light to protect the concentrated formulations in the bottle. Miron glass is also environmentally friendly and is reusable and recyclable.

EWG’s rating: 2
// the good
- Environmentally friendly and Australia sourced ingredients
- Made locally
- Creamy, soothing, moisturising formulation
- Not drying or oily
// the bad
- Packaging – quite heavy so probably not travel friendly (although you can purchase travel size bottles)
- On the expensive end
// the verdict
If you are looking for a certified organic cleaner, this Mukti hydrating cleansing lotion is definitely worth trying. The formulation is creamy and soothing, without the usual drying feeling that some other natural products cause. I feel very reassured knowing I’m not putting any nasties onto my skin and my skin is certainly thanking me too! A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
