Morning my lovelies, I don't know about you but the drastic change in weather has left my skin feeling a bit out of sorts.
Now usually my skin is quite hardy, slightly oily and spot prone but lately it seems drier in places, a little dehydrated ( probably the central heating ) and well just a bit dull really.
Luckily for me i was sent 2 new products to review which really seem to have hit the spot with combating these problems and providing some much needed TLC.
Introducing MONU by Susan Moleneux
Essential Cleansing Balm. RRP £35.00
This balm is just amazing. It melts upon skin contact & feels sooo luxurious. The essential oils smell heavenly and it makes cleansing my skin feel like a mini facial, something to look forward to rather than a chore.
The product contains tiny minuscule particles which have a gentle exfoliating Action but it's mild enough to use everyday.
I massage the product into my skin and remove with a warm wet muslin cloth that comes with the product. It leaves my skin feeling gorgeous, soft, clean and pampered. The best bit is it removes full on makeup so easily. No need for a separate cleanser either as there is no oily residue whatsoever which is rare for an oil based cleanser.
You can see this is a balm but it turns to a light oil as you massage it into the skin.
It's not the cheapest of cleansers but it is a fantastic product & worth every penny. Ideal if you are looking for a little pampering and extra oooomph.
Personally i will use a few times a week to make it last longer and to give my skin a bit of a boost.
The 2nd product i have been putting through it's paces is the Monu Essential Elements, with Rose, Wheatgerm & Arnica for Very Dry or Damaged skin.
Now i have to say this worried me a little when it first arrived & i read the words Very Dry Skin. After all i would never put myself in that category. Still i decided to give it a go as i said my skin has been drier than normal and if i didn't like it then I'd just not use it again.
However i was pleasantly surprised. I only used a tiny amount but my skin seemed to drink this right up.
The Texture is quite rich as you would expect but there was no sticky residue or heavy feeling with it. The smell again was beautiful. I love aromatherapy oils & so applying this was a real sensory treat in the evenings.
The product itself is packed full of great ingredients including Vitamin E, Olive oils, Rose & Sandlewood essential oils.
I applied this at bedtime and when i woke up my skin looked brighter and felt much softer. I have only been using it 3 times a week just because of my skin type but even with my limited use it has made a difference to my skin. It seems to have a calming and nurturing effect on my skin which is exactly what i was looking for at this time of year.
Ideal for those of you who are on the drier side or just want a little extra protection. RRP £26.50
