Skincare Education with MONU

So if you've heard me whinge about my skin once, you've heard me do it a million times. I've never had great skin. I'm just not blessed with a blemish free complexion, nor do I adhere to a 'normal' skin label. Woe is me with my dry/greasy/patchy blemishy face!

The problem I have is that I've started using even more make-up than normal in a bid to disguise the spotty, dotty, problems as opposed to tackling them head on. ('scuse the pun.)

Anyway, when MONU Skincare got in touch asking if I had any current issues, they listened to me. Not only did they listen but their Skincare Educator recommended the Delicate Facial Wash used with Active Toner to help with oily skin whilst calming redness.


They arrived in the post just a couple of days later and firstly, I just want to say how cute the packaging is. Delicately wrapped in branded tissue, complete with gift bag, it screams "I'm a luxury brand and I care about you!" which gives a great first impression.

The Delicate Facial Wash is pearlescent in appearance and silky serum-like to touch. Lather onto wet skin using fingertips across the face and neck then rinse. The Active Toner will help remove those very last bits of dirt or make-up that you may have missed whilst washing and leaves a firming, clean, feeling after using. There are two ways to use the Toner. Spritz and wipe off with cotton wool or, my preferred method, spritz and wipe with a hot damp cloth for instant radiance.

The visible difference in my skin is not captured on camera as it is in person but believe me, I certainly can see the change and wow, can I feel it. I hadn't actively noticed until making this before/after grid that, actually,  my forehead lines have faded somewhat too. To say I'm chuffed is an understatement. 


I feel soft, smooth, and moisturised, not greasy skinned with bizarre dry patches which has been the norm for such a long long time. I adore the facial wash. It's scent, which includes Lemon, Grapefruit and Orange Essential Oils, is stunning and my husband often compliments me shortly after I've used it "mmm you smell nice". Yes, yes I do! I have been using it twice a day for just over 2 weeks now and have just about come to the end of the tube. Noooo!! To make it last the full month, I could have just used it once a day.

The toner, which contains distilled witch hazel, I use less often as twice daily makes my skin feel too tight. So, once a day with a hot cloth in the evenings makes for a lovely firm clean face that has softened by the morning and calmed the redness I am often left with after I've removed my make-up the night before. I must admit I'm not as keen on this scent as the facial wash but that is purely because the active ingredients are based on florals and wood aromas rather than the fruity facial wash. Purely a personal preference and I can't deny the good work it's doing so I'm not getting too hung up about it, that's for sure!

  21. I am now in Seoul and I am impressed on how people here have invested for skin care. At least I have now your article as guide whenever I hear people talk about skin care. I guess this is perfect for them.
