A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to come across a brand that was new to me called Monu on twitter. Monu Skincare believe that the products bring out the best in you and your skin by using ingredients that are derived from nature. Every product contains unique formulations that utilise the special properties of pure, natural ingredients using plants, herbs, minerals and essential oils. As you can imagine, MONU formulations do not contain any damaging chemicals, artificial perfumes or synthetic colours and they also do not test their products or ingredients, on animals. Amazing, right? I love this. When Monu offered me a chance to try one of their products I jumped at the chance and it comes in the form of the Monu Brightening Boost* and oh my, I am in love, literally. I posted a litle mini review on this here and I must say it is all still positive.
I absolutely love the packaging, it's a slim 15ml bottle which almost looks like it has somewhat of a frosted glass effect which makes it look just that little more lavish which I have to say I quite like.
The Monu Brightening Boost* is of a lightweight, creamy consistency which contains vitamin c, niacinamide and hexapeptide-2 which says it will reduce sun damage, hyperpigmentation including age spots. It is actually recommended for mature and sun-damaged skin which I thought was a little odd but I managed to overlook it. I can't exactly comment on whether it reduces sun damage as I don't have any but I do have hyperpigmentation from previous acne which was a little reduced while using the Monu Brightening Boost, hallelujah! I apply the Monu Brightening boost* onto my face before my moisturiser most mornings when I'm up early in the morning and I want that extra boost to make me look a little more I don't know, alive, haha. It is actually pretty great. I dispense at least 2 pumps of the product into the palm of my hand and massage well into my face and oh my, it soaks and blends into my skin like a dream. It soaks in so quickly leaving my skin looking radiant and incredibly hydrated. It's so hydrating that I think it would work doubled up as a moisturiser too. Why not skip the moisturiser and just use this on it's own.
Blended into the skin:
I imagine it would make a difference to anyone of any age whether you're in you're 20's, 30's or 50's. Hell, you can even use it in your 70's or 80's! I'm just lost for words about this product, it just makes a whole lot of difference to my normally dull, oily/combo skin.
Overall, I am completely, utterly besotted! Once I run out of the Monu Brightening Boost* I will be purchasing it without a doubt. It gives me the most gorgeous, fresh, luminous complexion which I absolutely love. You will definitely not need to use a highlighter alongside this. It is absolutely perfect for brightening and perking up the skin. Highly recommended!
