Kracie Moistage 3 Step System



A little while ago, I was having a fairly bad week, and so my boyfriend took it upon himself to buy me a little present whilst I was at work! When I got home at 5am, I found a little bag waiting for me on the kitchen table, with this inside of it.

What is it, you may ask? I asked the same thing!


This is the Kracie Moistage 3 Step System. There are absolutely no English directions on the box or on any of the bottles, so it was a bit tough trying to scour the internet for clues on how exactly to use this!



The kit comes with three different products. The Wrinkle Essence Lotion, the Wrinkle Essence Milk and the Wrinkle Essence Cream. The moment I saw "wrinkle" I began to get angry, until he explained that the lady in the shop suggested this to him, as an all around great skin system - not just for wrinkles! Apparently this is hugely popular in Japan and among Japanese girls in Melbourne who frequent the store, so it must be good! I do love Japanese cosmetics and skincare, so I knew this probably wouldn't break me out, which is always a plus.




Wrinkle Essence Lotion



The lotion is the first step. This is a serum rather than a lotion, and it's very watery and light. The first time I tried this I used far too much, and I ended up completely wet! The next time I knew the use a smaller amount, and it certainly settled a lot better. The smell isn't very natural, and almost smells like alcohol, so I'm not too sure about that as I have no idea what the ingredients are. When the right amount is used however, it does absorb very quickly and is very light on the skin. 





Wrinkle Essence Milk



The milk is my favourite step! The milk is a lovely, slightly thicker liquid than the lotion, and smells a lot better! It definitely is "milky" and goes on the skin very smoothly. It leaves the skin still feeling a little wet, so it doesn't absorb as well as the lotion, but still makes my skin feel lovely and fresh!





Wrinkle Essence Cream

This is exactly what it says it is, a cream! The cream is a lovely thick cream that glides on the skin and absorbs extremely quickly, taking away all the wetness left behind from the milk! The cream seals the deal, and makes my skin feel very fresh and clean! 




With all of these products, this is the amount you need to use. See how tiny that is, and compare it to how giant the packaging is! This is how generous Japanese brands are! Can you imagine if this was a well known Western brand, their packages would have been a quarter of the size and triple the price! I have no idea how I'll get through all of this, and it feels like it's going to last me the rest of my life - but hey, I'm not complaining!



I wish there were clearer instructions, but I'm pretty sure I'm doing it correctly! Either way, the whole system definitely makes my skin feel lighter, cleaner and fresher!

After a little while of using this every night before bed, it's cleared my skin up a lot. I am even getting to the point where I feel I can wear no make-up out of the house confidently (something we all wish for, some lucky of us already have!) I have no confidence when it comes to my skin, but this is clearing everything up so well, I feel a lot better about myself!

I would recommend this to anyone, and will be repurchasing this if I ever run out (or maybe if my bottles are stolen - a more likely scenario!)


Have you tried the Kracie Moistage 3 Step System

  3. I haven't tried anything like this because we have no Daiso or similar stores here.
    But it certainly is annoying when you can't read the instructions! Haha.
    So it cleared up your skin too? Wow!

    Your boyfriend is so sweet to get that for you. The thought certainly counts :)

  4. I just found your blog and I love it!

    Hoho I'm such a big fan of Japanese skin care and this looks so good! :)) I can translate the Japanese parts and ingredients for you, if you like. I know how it can be tricky using something without clear instructions :) I believe this is the product:

      I'd love you to translate (just basic stuff, don't go all out haha) I found some very vague instructions in English so I'd like to be sure I'm not missing something!

      I'll check your blog out now :) Thanks again!

  5. Your bf is so awesome! I love it when I get surprises from mine... never heard of kracie, will keep an eye out when I go to singapore (fingers crossed) and am off my spending ban!

    I wish I could go out of the door makeup free. Post-acne scars are holding me back.. They're like 4 year old scars, which are taking their bloody time to fade off. I'm thinking about getting laser treatment.. hmm...

    1. Hehe I know, I love him! It's always nice to get a surprise :)
      That really sucks! Damn acne! How much would laser treatment cost though?? If it's not too costly, I'd say go for it! :)

    1. I would recommend the milk myself, but that's because it did more for me than the cream :) xx
