About Monami Cosmetics

Monami Cosmetics manufactures a line of anti-aging creams and serums that are claimed to be clinically proven decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, repair and rejuvenate skin, and to prevent further damage from occurring. While there are very few ingredients listed on the Monami Cosmetics website, it appears the company uses a combination of vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, fruit acid, green tea extract, grape stem cell extract, soy-based micronized liposomes, macadamia nut oil, ginkgo biloba, and peptides.

With this said, Monami Skincare produces a line of 5 anti-aging products, including:

  • Anti-Wrinkle Serum – A powerful serum that’s applied twice daily and is claimed to use antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients to fight wrinkles around your face, neck, and eyes, while also protecting these areas from further damage.
  • Anti-Aging Puffy Eye Treatment – A natural formula that’s claimed to treat dark circles, wrinkles, fine lines, sagging and dry skin around the eyes, while rejuvenating the area and making it appear more youthful.
  • Anti-Aging Moisturizer – A patented, natural anti-aging formula claimed to contain UVA-protecting ingredients and vitamins that reduce the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and sun spots; provide more radiant, youthful-looking, and hydrated skin; and to prevent further damage from occurring.
  • Lip Enhancer – Gently stimulates and hydrates lips to increase size, stimulate the production of collagen, and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  • Instant Face Lift – An “instant face revitalizer” that’s claimed to combine peptides and nutrients that can boost collagen production, promote DNA and sun damage repair, decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and increase your skin’s radiance.

Monami Skincare claims that their anti-aging products work with all skin types, even combination skin, and will not cause irritation.

Can Monami Cosmetics Really Reduce the Signs of Aging?

When researching anti-aging products, you’ve probably read all kinds of claims and have been promised all kinds of results. But when it comes to Monami Cosmetics, can you reasonably expect the products to work as advertised? Consider the following:

Where’s the Clinical Proof?

According to Monami’s website, their products have been clinically proven to work and to promote DNA repair. The company also claims that their formulas are patented, and that they’re award-winning.

However, Monami doesn’t provide any clinical evidence showing that their products work as advertised. On top of this, antioxidants haven’t been clinically shown to consistently repair DNA; only to prevent further damage from occurring. In fact, this 2013 study reported in Nature claimed that antioxidant supplementation may actually be harmful.

Finally, there is no indication through online sources that Monami holds any patents for their products (at least through this company name), or that they’ve won any awards for their formulations.

Where’s the Product Label?

In addition to lack of clinical evidence, Monami Skincare doesn’t provide a product label or a complete ingredients list for any of their products. While they do provide some of the ingredients their products contain, there is no way to verify how much of each ingredient they contain, or if any other ingredients are used in their formulations.

Sometimes it’s All About Marketing

Next, Monami engages in some questionable marketing practices that we’ve covered on numerous occasions. One of these involves creating a fake news website (seen here) that includes fake celebrity endorsements from Dr. Oz claiming that, “We were so surprised by how shockingly simple, cheap, and effective [Dr. Oz’s] technique was, we had to test it ourself (sic) and write a feature article on the results!” However, there is no indication through online sources that Monami has been featured on the Dr. Oz show, or that it’s endorsed by Dr. Oz.

A fake news website
One of Monami's fake news website (www.monamiecosmetics.com/timeless.php)

On another of Monami’s websites, the company claims that “9 out of 10 customers agree, they witnessed a profound improvement on their skin after using Monami Anti-Aging Solution. In just weeks, the natural ingredients drastically diminished most signs of aging, creating another satisfied, and younger-looking, customer.”

However, as we mentioned above, there is no proof provided to back up these claims. On top of this, the before and after pics on this site are clearly the same image, with the after picture simply Photoshopped to remove wrinkles and make the skin tone appear more even.

Bottom Line

Considering the lack of product labels or complete ingredients lists, lack of clinical evidence to support their claims, and questionable marketing tactics, we might recommend talking with your dermatologist about more tried and trued methods of reducing the signs of aging than Monami Cosmetics.

    Trial is a scam and I saw no results.

    • Leesburg, VA,
    • Nov 19, 2014

    If you do not cancel within 14 days you will be charged for the product! They do not tell you this in any email communication, so if you missed it, you will get charged.

    Customer service is horrible. And within 14 days I saw no results!

    Toxic ingredients.

    • Texas,
    • Jun 19, 2015

    All the natural things this cream and serum contain are not main ingredients. Some listed on the website are not even in them. Trideceth 6 and phenoxyethanol are organ toxic and one is a skin irritant similar to antifreeze. Triethanolamine is a carcinogen, too. It also contains mineral oil (bad for your pores).

    I noticed absolutely no difference after two weeks. Do not buy!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I do not recommend at all.

    • Atlanta, GA,
    • Jul 9, 2015

    This is a total rip-off. They don't state anywhere that you will be billed before your trial is over and their customer service Sucks. I would've given it zero stars but had to choose at least one in order to post this review.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Monami Skincare

    • Los Angeles, CA,
    • Jul 9, 2015

    Horrible service and product, it is a scam. They wait for the 19 day trail period and if you do not call within that time period they still charge you for the product read the fine print. Took over a week to receive it, but they still count the trail period from the day you order online.

    I was only able to receive a partial refund. Product was not effective at all.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Buyer beware

    • United States,
    • Dec 7, 2014

    As the other unfortunate people here have stated, this is a scam! Do not fall into this lie of a product with false claims and actual harmful ingredients. They're based on lies of false endorsements by Dr Oz! Don't make the same mistake like I did.

    Liars, liars pants on fire

    • Stone Mtn, Georgia,
    • Dec 10, 2014

    Don't be tricked into buying this product. It is not endorsed by Dr. OZ and the product does not work. Watch out for the trial product bait. They will get your money so fast it will make your head swim. I have reported them to the BBB. Don't buy any of their products, they don't work and the customer service is poor.

    Not happy with the product

    • Miami Gardens, Florida ,
    • Dec 23, 2014

    I'm so mad, first the price was a promotion and then I got extra charges to my account, without letting me know. I'm not happy, and also I haven't seen the work of the product. I see myself in the mirror, still looking tired, not even a little freshness in my eyes. It was not what I expected.
