    FIRST IMPRESSION: MONU PROFESSIONAL SKINCARE ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS

    At first, I was kinda confused with ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS on the packaging. So, what are MONU SKIN PROFESSIONAL ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS? [you can watch the video on below page] Designed to nourish dry skin and restore suppleness for a more radiant appearance, Essential Elements moisturising cream is ideal for counteracting the effects of cold weather and elemental damage. Packed full of comforting natural ingredients, including Wheat Germ, Olive Oil and aromatic Rose and Sandalwood oils, it works to effectively restore hydration and revitalisation to the complexion. Perfect for dry or sensitive skin. Ideal for those who have an active lifestyle or spend a lot of time outdoors.

    Susan Molyneux’s creation, the Monu Professional Skincare range allows you to enjoy unique formulations that utilize the special properties of pure, natural ingredients using plants and herbs, minerals and essential oils. With essentials for your face and body, this wonderful brand harnesses the remarkable recuperative power of nature to soothe, nurture and protect your skin and refresh your inner being. And as you’d expect, no Monu Professional Skincare formulation contains damaging chemicals, artificial perfumes, or synthetic colours; nor do they test them on animals.

    IMPRESSION

    The essential elements have a really thick and creamier form of a cream. I love that it is really quick to absorb into my skin and it doesn’t cause any makeup cakey or flakiness.

    It is also not causing skin breakout, I have also use UV protection after I use this cream and it does blend perfectly with my HADALABO air UV moist SPF 50+++/PA. Normally, thicker cream version will cause whitehead around my skin but this one doesn’t and I use my makeup without any primer base right now. It does lasting for 8 hours and I do feel that my skin is really healthy right now.

    Ever since I use this product, I have not suffered from adult acnes around my jaw (left and right), there is no big stone like acnes during my period. All of sudden it just stopped. However, during my travel for more than 8 hours I have to add sheetmask when I feel dehydrated. While I travel back from San Fransisco to Singapore, I have not using any sheetmask and at that time I happened to just use this product in 2nd week. I guess it does make my skin develop more moist or to make the moist stay intact. I rarely feel dry, or even dehydrated.

    While I use Tretinoin, I often suffer from skin peeling in the next morning, so I have to use more face mask to moisten and hydrate my face. While using this product, I have no longer having those problem, so I keep my retinol routine back to normal. It is really devastated 3 years for me, to look over a face cream product. Not that I want to say that all the face cream from my skincare routine is bad, they just doesn’t give enough moisturizer for my skin.

    I have to be able to balance out by lessen or adding the skincare into my routine. I always wanted to have only single cream that able to do manage all of that because I still need to exfoliate my sin and use tretinoin. I am really sensitive for my skin need as I grow up and right now I am in early 30 therefore, I have to cultivate my skincare routine to adapt with my current skin condition.

    PRODUCT OUTLOOK


    The applicator is pumped. I like pumped applicator because it sustains the cream into the original condition since it doesn’t expose the cream, unlike jar packaging that will certain be exposed everytime I open the jar and I also have to use the tools to just take out the cream but have to say that I believe that beauty brands have thought carefully and thoroughly to create the packaging for their product creation.

    The cream form is really thick and really creamy. I love the feel of this cream. I assume that since the cream form is hard, that’s probably the reason that my makeup blend perfectly smooth.
