The Menaji Power Hydrator light moisturizing cream that doubles as an aftershave balm. Overall, Menaji has done a really nice job at creating a well-rounded product that can cover a man’s skin care requirements in a single product.
The Power Hydrator is a soothing cream that refreshes the skin with anti-oxidants and botanical ingredients. It is designed to be used after shaving to help re-nourish and moisturize your skin. However, its nice moisturizing effect and non-alcohol based formula also make it great for daily use as a go-to moisturizer. As an added benefit it also contains hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate your skin and reduce the occurrence of wrinkles.
Lightweight lotion consisting of chamomile, green tea, grapefruit peel, vitamin E and aloe
Hyaluronic acid increases skin’s moisture level and minimizes wrinkle lines
Promotes healthy skin with all-day hydration
SUMMARY OF PERFORMANCE
While I don’t think it made any of my wrinkles go away, at times, the Menija Power Hydrator did feel like it helped to prevent them from getting worse, however, that’s kind of the point of any moisturizer. I did really enjoy using this product though, and because of its multiple uses as an anti-aging cream, moisturizer and aftershave, it simplified my morning routine allowing me to use just 1 product instead of several.
The formula felt very light, nourishing and healthy for my skin, which helped to minimise shine and keep my skin clear of spots. And using this as an aftershave cream made me feel comfortable using a razor again because it helped prevent in-grown hairs after shaving. So basically, I just starting using the product every morning and night after washing my face, which made my skincare routine super easy.
Premium Range $$$
Priced at $34 USD + shipping the Power Hydrator is a bit pricey, but it comes in a 118ml bottle, which is a lot more than most facial moisturizers come with, so it lasts quite a long time. It’s lasted me a good 4-5 months and still hasn’t run out yet.
- Oily-Normal and clear skin
- Use as a daily moisturizer
- Use after shaving
EASE OF USE
Very easy and convenient. I found Menaji’s Power Hydrator’s nourishing ingredients make it good for doubling as a day and night cream. And its advanced formula does the job of 3 products, in just 1 application which helps to simplify your routine.
AMOUNT OF PRODUCT USED PER APPLICATION
Normal. Its light formula spreads quite well so you don’t need to use a lot per application.
I find the cream has a pleasant smell. It smells fresh and earthy, but also like it’s masking the smell of the synthetic ingredients.
Low-Medium – Menaji’s Power Hydrator is a fairly light product, and as an all-rounder, its strengths in the different areas it caters to is on the lower side, however, that’s also something that I liked about it because it felt nice and gently.
The Power Hydradator delivers fairly consistent and reliable performance for daily use when applied to clean skin. On application, it feels like there is a watery layer left on the skin, however, after a few minutes that is absorbed into the skin for a natural-looking finish.
The formula is also quite light and non-greasy, also it doesn’t much shine or clog the pores of your skin.
So overall, the Menaji Power Hydrator’s benefits and smooth consistency makes it really easy to apply on the go.

WOULD I BUY AGAIN?
Yes, if it became more available in Europe. Factoring in that a half-decent facial moisturizer with Hyaluronic acid and aftershave both usually cost at least $10-20 apiece, it’s not such a bad price. But it wouldn’t stop me from looking at other products, because it’s still on the expensive side. Although currently, it’s not very available for me to get, because international shipping is quite high.
