Do you love Japanese skincare and Studio Ghibli? If yes, today’s topic is perfect for you! We've talked before about Pokemon-themed cosmetics on our sister site nomakenolife. This time, we have a new collection of Studio Ghibli-themed moisturizers!


As Studio Ghibli fans, you may have heard about Donguri Republic, a company that specializes in Studio Ghibli-themed merchandise. This adorable collection is the product of a collaboration between Donguri Republic and SteamCream.

SteamCream is a steam-emulsified moisturizing cream packed with 100% naturally active ingredients. The brand is quite famous in Japan, the UK, and some other countries. The unique part of SteamCream is that even though they only have one variant of moisturizers, they come with various gorgeous designs on its signature aluminum tin packaging.

For SteamCream's collaboration with Donguri Republic, of course the packaging designs will feature Studio Ghibli's iconic characters. The collection comes in a total of eight varieties which consist of two larger tins with original fragrance blends and six mini tins with the standard SteamCream.

The two larger moisturizers are 70 grams each and titled "My Neighbor Totoro: Yuzu & Ginger" and "Kiki's Delivery Service: Jasmine & Ylang-ylang". According to their variant names, the Totoro one has the refreshing aroma of Yuzu citrus and Ginger while the Kiki's Delivery Service one has a calming Jasmine and Ylang-ylang fragrance. Just by taking a single glance at the packaging, you can see how adorable Totoro, Kiki, and Jiji are as they feature on the tin designs!

The rest of the collection are mini tinned moisturizers, sized 30 grams only and are the perfect size to bring with you on the go. Just like the larger tin, various characters from Studio Ghibli are featured on the packaging designs. Take a look at these "Castle in The Sky: Volucite Crystal" and "Whisper of The Heart: Antique Clock mini tin” moisturizers for example!

These 6 mini tins of moisturizers come with the standard variant of SteamCream. If you have problems with dry skin, you don’t have to worry since one of their ingredients is Neroli oil which helps to improve skin texture and tone, making this collection ideal for dry, sensitive, and mature skin. 

The exciting part of buying these moisturizers is that you can choose which designs you love the most as well. If you're a fan of Howl’s Moving Castle and Ponyo, you might love the designs below!

Aside from Neroli oil, SteamCream also uses lavender as a main ingredient which is known for its medicinal benefits in soothing skin burns, sunburn, skin irritations, cold sores, and insect bites. Other top ingredients to moisturize the skin include, rose, almond oil, sweet almond, and cocoa butter.

So of course, these Arriety and Kiki’s Delivery Service-themed moisturizers will certainly nourish your skin and even warm your heart!

Have you fallen in love with this collection? The best thing is that SteamCream plans to release even more Ghibli variants as time goes on! The price of the 30 grams mini tin moisturizer is 900 JPY (around $10) each and the larger tin costs 2000 JPY (around $20). You can purchase them through Donguri’s official online shop.

However, you may need to use a forwarding service such as Tenso if you don’t have immediate plans to visit Japan, because Donguri Republic only delivers to Japanese addresses. Of course you may be able to find them online elsewhere via Amazon and/or Ebay as well. 

That finishes our talk about Studio Ghibli-themed moisturizers from Donguri Republic! Which design do you like the most? Tell us in the comments below!
