MONU moisture rich collagen cream

This is a totally new brand for me.  Normally I’m pretty happy using Dermalogica skin smoothing cream and I honestly never thought I’d find anything as nice.  Until I tried MONU moisture rich collagen cream.

I was one of the lucky ones to get this in my recent Glossybox.  The product is full size 50ml. I’ve been using it for a few days now – it’s amazing.  It’s a really rich cream so it’s perfect for my dry skin.  It says it relieves dryness and smooths fine lines.  My skin feels really soft and smooth.  Often a cream for dry skin can take ages to absorb into the skin, but that’s not the case with this one.  I’ve found it to be great to use before applying makeup – my makeup has applied really well the last few days and has really lasted during the day.  I’ve found it a really nice cream to use at night too. 

One thing really stood out to me and that’s the scent.  This cream contains rose and geranium essential oils, evening primrose and blackcurrant seed oils.  I actually quite like the scent, but those who don’t particularly like rose might not.  The cream contains shea butter and sodium hyaluronate and marine collagen to help smooth fine lines. I’m not saying this is any kind of miracle cream because I don’t think they exist, but I’ll definitely be buying more of this.  I’ve tracked it down at feelunique for £16.25 which I think is a fantastic price.  

What do you think of MONU products?  I think I'll be trying more products in the future.
