Monu Brightening Boost* | RRP £22.50 Link

Monu Skincare is a brand that is committed to creating unique and naturally pure beauty products. They are a brand who believe in using natural resources and utilise the special properties of natural ingredients like plants, herbs, minerals and oils. I've tried a few items from Monu before; in particular my favourite one is the Monu Calming Cream (review here) which works an absolute treat for calming the redness in my skin especially when i have blemishes, it makes it easier for me to cover them up! So when i got the opportunity to try out a Monu Product, i pretty much jumped at the chance!

The product i received was the Monu Brightening Boost*  and on first impression i loved the packaging; i don't know what it is about it but i just think it's really nice, it's almost has like a frosted glass effect to it and it just looks a little more luxurious. It's quite a slim bottle so it'd be really handy to take travelling with you or to take on the go. The first thing i saw on this product was that it's for 'Mature and Sun Damaged Skin' which instantly put me off a little as at 23 i don't want to be thinking of my skin as mature but i overlooked that and took into consideration that it is also for sun damaged skin which affects everyone.

On reading about it on the website I've discovered I've actually been using it wrong as you are supposed to use it underneath your moisturiser whereas I've been applying it after that - I'm such an idiot. Thankfully, Ive still noticed quite positive results with this so i don't think it's going to affect how it works too much but ill definitely try it the other way and let you know. The brightening boost promises to revitalise the complexion, smooth surface imperfections and plump the skin to give a more youthful and fresh appearance. It's also claims to combat signs of premature ageing resulting in a hydrated and brighter complexion.

Obviously, i can't comment on how well it helps with ageing skin but for everything else this product is pretty darn good; it's product that is suitable for all skin types and this leaves my skin feeling really fresh and hydrated, after using it my skin looks plump and healthy and it really does brighten up the complexion, it leaves my skin with a really healthy looking glow. Ive found myself skipping out highlighter in my make up routine because with this underneath my foundation i don't need it, this gives me enough of a natural glow.

This has become a bit of a make up bag essential for me and i take it out with me so whenever my skin is looking a little dull or it needs a bit of a boost i apply a bit of this and it instantly brightens up my skin! I was a little put off at first when i read it was for 'mature skin' as i wasn't sure it could offer me anything but it's definitely proved me wrong, I'm so impressed with this product and i love the results it gives me!

Have you tried any products from Monu?
