Mia's Sponsored Review: Meditrina Ageless Herbal Cream and Soothing Moxa Essence

So, roughly about 1 month plus ago, I tried out the MTM Therapy at Indulge Skin & Body Lab and was also given a complimentary set of Meditrina Ageless Herbal Cream with Chasteberry Extract and Soothing Moxa Essence to try out. So after emptying out the entire tub of the herbal cream, I feel that it's high time I give my honest comments about it.


First up, the Soothing Moxa Essence, which adopts nanotechnology to allow the ingredients to penetrate into the skin. This product works like a 30 seconds DIY acupuncture session, minus off the pain of needles, to give immediate and quick relief of pain.
Usage is extremely easy too. We just need to drop 1 to 2 drops of the essence onto our palm, press the palm over the area in pain until heating sensation is felt, and quickly remove palm (else the heat may get unbearable) and pat lightly.

In my opinion, this essence basically has delivered what it promised as a pain relief essence, for the alleviation of aches is really pretty quick and significant. However, this product does not serve as a form of medicinal cure for whichever health issues that is causing the symptoms of pain, for the pain relief is temporary and will come back pretty fast if you leave your underlying health issues unchecked.


Next, the Ageless Herbal Cream with Chasteberry Extract, which uses a unique transdermal phyto-nutrient therapy to transport nutrients faster than other delivery systems.
To fully optimise the benefits of this cream, we should apply an adequate amount of cream on the following 6 key areas and massage till absorbed:

1. Lower back
2. Inner arm
3. Breasts
4. Inner thigh
5. Neck
6. Abdomen

In addition, we can also put emphasis on certain areas to target specific problems. For irregularities in monthly cycle, we can emphasize application on our lower back and abdomen. For disturbed sleep, emphasize on neck. And for unexplained weight gain on lower body, emphasize on thighs and gently pound on outer thighs after application.


The cream feel rich and smooth, but doesn't leave your skin greasy after application and absorption. The scent, however, is more of an acquired smell. I wouldn't call this unpleasant at all, but it definitely doesn't smell like those yummy body lotion you pick off the shelves at Victoria Secrets or Sephora. In fact, the smell somehow reminded me of my grandmother. Yes, it's a kind of elderly, herbal scent that is still considered pleasant to my senses.
And of course, over the course of about one month, I apply the cream diligently every night before I sleep, emphasizing on my lower back and abdomen for my recently turned irregular period cycle.

I used to be on a fixed timetable for my period until about 4 cycles back, it started delaying 5 to 7 days per cycle. So by doing simple Maths, you can deduce that after the 4 cycles, I've effectively lost 1 cycle, and that's not good. Not literally about losing 1 period cycle, but the irregularity.
And guess what, after using this cream, my very next period came exactly on the date it was supposed to start!
Miracle or what?!


And of course, I also feel a slight different at my neck (even though it's hardly captured in the photo). I find that the skin of my neck has brightened up and the slight patchiness of uneven skin tone has somehow even out slightly, as seen in the picture on the right. It occurred to me that my neck lines have also lighten ever so lightly, though hardly noticeable.

Till then,

  4. Nanonizing the particles helps to improve skin penetration of the cream... this technology is probably why this cream is so effective. Definitely worth a try.

  5. I have heard a lot about the miraculous positive effect of nanotechnology innovations on the skin but never applied them personally. Having read your review I feel tempted to try Meditrina Ageless to rejuvenate my skin and make it look naturally fresh.

  9. It's great to heard that it's working. However, is this something value for money? Meaning will you actually repurchase it for the cost and the effect it is giving? Just wondering!

    1. it's best to couple this products with the MTM therapy i've blogged previously and linked in this post. so in terms of repurchase, yes i will because i do intend to go for the treatment, but not after i'm done with my current tcm package with cmc.

  10. Brave of you to try this out and see for yourself. :-)

    I thought this was about mere make up, but the treatment part makes it intriguing...

  13. So this product helps in keeping the menstrual cycle regular. It's pretty interesting. And good for you. Having an irregular period is irritating. You just don't know when you should hit the beach next!

  14. It has a lot of benefits. It can treat a lot of health issues.

  15. If this was effective for the period cycle, then I assume it's also effective for the disturbed sleep? If so, I would definitely try out this product as I'm really having a hard time getting a straight sleep. Thanks Mia for sharing!

  16. Ohhhh the pain relief cream looks fab! Sounds like something I could do with at the moment as my legs are still aching from my new program at the gym! Love the packaging design too :) Simone x

  17. I wonder what really is nanotechnology is? It all depends on the attitude and tolerance to pain.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks for the great review. I am always hesitant to try new products like this so it is helpful to hear what others think about it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think to have long term effect it will have to go with the treatment together?

    ReplyDelete
  20. This sounds terrific. I definitely noticed the change in your skin texture and color. It looks smoother and brighter... Is this sold in the US?

    ReplyDelete
  21. can tell a slight difference between the two photos!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Would you recommend using the moxa pain relief essence over the Salonpas transdermal patches?

    Also for the cream, do you know what it usually treats?

    ReplyDelete
  23. A cream made used nano technology, now that sure is something worth trying...

    ReplyDelete
  24. The result is really obvious with the photos you have posted here. This is worth a try!
