Skin care is something that I've slowly being investing more in. I've never had terrible skin, but I have had troublesome skin with the odd breakout here and there. Oh and trying to keep the oil at bay without looking like a cakey mess has proven difficult. I have made a concious effort to start taking better care of my skin, so that it looks the best it possibly can. My main motivation is my wedding, with the hope that my skin will lovely and glowing right throughout the day!
A few weeks ago, I saw on Twitter that Monu (@monushop) were looking for bloggers to try out some of their products. I was lucky enough to receive this Firming Moisturiser* from their range and give it a whirl. The range of products is pretty amazing over on the Monu Shop, so if you're after some new skincare or other products such as Fake Tan, Makeup, Body Care and Gifts.
The Firming Moisturiser* has quickly become a firm favourite of mine. Let's talk about the scent first as this was the thing that I noticed first. It does have quite a strong scent of lavender, but it doesn't over power to product by any means. It is actually quite a pleasant scent which doesn't linger once applied to the skin. This scent comes from the addition of the lavender and neroli oils, both of which I feel give the moisturiser a luxurious kick. The moisturiser itself is quite thick in texture, with a soft creamy finish to it. I apply this after my morning cleanse, and let me tell you, it applies like a dream. I just apply small dots of this around my face and then blend in circular motions. I can instantly feel my skin getting a little tighter but not uncomfortable, and my makeup sits so nicely on top of this. It also makes my skin feel so much smoother, which is an absolute bonus. This product is understandably targeted at those with dry skin, but my oil skin has had no problems with this, so it could be a one size fits all product.
If you are interested in Monu's products then you can find them on their website here. I have my eye on so much from them, including the Replenishing Skin Peel and the Recovery Balm!
