June is just around the corner and you know what that means – it’s peak holiday season again! We doubt there’s anyone that can turn down a getaway but there are downsides to travelling. Well, maybe just one – packing. When it comes to travel, it’s all about packing smart. That’s why we were delighted when MUJI extended their to GO Series to include more innovative and functional items to help you breeze through packing.
Hanging Case Series
Pouches are a godsend when it comes to packing because they keep your luggage organised and neat with little effort. Just throw everything into the pouch, zip or roll it up and everything is in its right place. MUJI has taken the pouch one step further with the Hanging Case series, with mesh pockets and a hook, so we can find the items we need without having to dig around endlessly. The pouches are also slim, compact and adjustable so we can fold them into a smaller size if we aren’t bringing as many things along! You can even get the hanging case with a detachable pouch or the hanging box case for more bulky items.

Double Fastener Case
If you are just looking for a simple pouch, MUJI also offers these minimalist pouches for stationery, toiletries or your important documents so you can have easy access to them. The Double Fastener Cases come in 3 different sizes and colours, and has received a fabric upgrade, making it more sturdy and suitable for outside use.

Safety Case for Waist and Travel Wallet
Packing light also goes for wallets and your day-bags. With a smaller and lighter load, you’ll be able to move around more freely and your belongings can be kept closer to you, as well. Remember not to carry too many cards and cash on you as you travel around because it just makes you a moving target for pickpockets. MUJI’s Safety Case for the waist is slim and compact, allowing you to carry all your essentials while keeping your belongings close to your body. The travel wallets also come with a D-ring so you can attach your wallet to your pants with a simple but sturdy metal chain so you don’t have to worry about losing it.

Speaking of which, these don’t have to be used only for travel! They are great for organising around the house, as well. Since Mother’s Day is around the corner, why not help her around the house and gift her some of these simple yet absolutely practical pouches to keep the house organised and neat! We’re sure she’ll appreciate our efforts, even if we don’t do a great job.
If we could, we would love to keep our mums around forever but unfortunately, we don’t have such magical elixirs to make it happen. However, you can make your mum extra happy this Mother’s Day by gifting her MUJI’s Aging Care series to keep her looking and feeling youthful and radiant. The entire series makes up a complete skincare range, from boosters to toners and moisturisers, there’s everything she’ll need for a full skincare regime.
Aging Care Series
After cleansing, use a booster to prep your skin for the rest of your skincare products, allowing serums and lotions to penetrate the skin more easily. Then apply toner to your whole face to balance the pH of your skin. What’s great is that the Aging Care series has a high moisture version of the toner for those of us with dry skin! If you’d like, you can even put on a sheet mask after your toner, which will leave your skin soft and supple. Another standout product from the line is Moisturising Essence. It is so powerful that you only need is a pearl size amount for your entire face or you can just use it as spot care if you have dry patches.
Remember that your skin is the largest organ so don’t forget to moisturise and nourish your body as well! The All In One Body Gel contains 10 kinds of natural beautiful skin ingredients such as pomegranate, strawberry and rose and five functional ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and collagen to protect your skin against aging and saturate it with nutritious ingredients.
Although we’d love to treat our mums to a quick getaway this Mother’s Day, many of us can’t afford it or our mums are too busy anyway. We think the best gift is making our mums feel loved and appreciated and there’s no better way than making her work easier for her. Whether you want to make cleaning easier or gift her skincare products for a good pampering sesh, we’re sure she’ll be more than happy with a simple hug, kiss and an “I love you” from us.
All products from MUJI’s to GO line and Aging Care series are now available in all local MUJI stores. You can check out the full catalogue at muji.com.
