Oh! So beautiful : Cosme Decorte AQMW January 28, 2011


Oh! So beautiful……………..


Introducing Japan’s Cosme Decorte latest super-high end luxury line : AQMW ( Absolute Quality Miracle Wonder )


Design by Dutch interior designer Marcel Wanders, the line is designed for women over 30 years of age, the age to start preventive mesures against aging.

Package design

A dazzling white and elegant form. The striking white and willowy frame of the package reflect Marcel Wanders” idea of the “essence of a beautiful woman.” The pattern on the package of life-rich plants and flowers growing expresses the regenerative powers of the skin. The design’s sophisticated aura dramatizes the luxuriousness of time spent refining oneself.


KOSÉ developed the skincare product line “COSME DECORTE AQ MW” focusing on the skin’s regenerative powers akin to life-rich plants that continuously sprout new life. It added sandalwood extract, a moisturizer, for the first time to all items in the new product line, because researchers at KOSÉ found that sandalwood extract helps minimize the stress of daylight on the skin. It also blended the fragrance of sandalwood for its healing and relaxing effect. Furthermore, KOSÉ added a new moisturizer, mucinsome, by using liposome technologies to capsulate for the first time mucin*, a component of the mucous membrane living structures. Mucinsome induces the high affinity for the skin, the enhancement of skin barrier function, and the protection of the skin from dryness and other external stresses.


●Mucin is the main component of the mucous exist in the mouth, stomach, and other digestive organs and the lacrymal fluid.

● Mucin has an important function to provide optimum moisture, moderate the environmental insult, and
consequently protect the living body from invasion by
foreign substances.

● Secretion of this element is thought to decline with age.

( If you don’t have the budget for this – just get the escargot/snail based products which are also mucin rich )

    Ugh, this seems like one of those products that just put whatever in their products and expect it to work, like La Mer and La Prairie… fail! lol

    Got a few samples of this stuff. Amazingly, just two days in and my sking looks much clearer if a bit dryish. Normally i am using the history of whoo line, but now that it is difficult to get here in hkg, i am really toying with idea of swtiching to aqmw. The only bemol– it’s packed with parabens…

    I am using the yellow line from Whoo. I liked their eye cream very much, and went to gradually to purchase the whole range. Also bought my mother the red line and she is very happy with it. However, in her case she says that cle de peau gave her more instant results. (some say because it is packed with hormones) Don’t know if it is true… Actually, since last time I bought the AQMW line plus my new trusted friend Whitelogist Spots Concentration serum, which helps me with acne. Also having read you blog, decided to try out your frenemy Sulwhasoo masks, bb cream and the whitening eye stick… is it true that Sulwhasoo and Whoo use nano technology? The Amore PacificSA here couldn’t even answer the question…

    • Yes, Sulwhasoo and Whoo , and also a lot of Korean skincare brands uses nano-techonology. it’s their thing! They help these ingredients to penetrate even deeper into the skin!
