Monu’s Night Renewal Complex anyone? No? Me neither.
I’d like to start by saying I really wanted to like this product. It’s the first Monu product I’ve tried and I’d heard a lot of good things about the brand.
But I honestly, hand on heart, could not make myself like this. It’s too thick and does not seem to sink in easily, it smells very strongly like roses/old ladies and, to add insult to injury, it made me break out in spots.
I applied it before bed and looked forward to waking up with a beautifully smooth face, an experience I remember well from using the Nude Replacing Night Oil for the first time. But I woke up greasy, spotty and well… understandably miffed. Far from ideal.
I kept at it though. I battled through to see at what point this product started agreeing with my skin.
That point never came.
Obviously this is merely my personal experience. I’m 100% positive that a large number of you have used this and loved it. It did have a lovely thick creamy texture. But as I said, I personally didn’t enjoy that either as I thought it made it difficult to work with. However this hasn’t put me off trying further Monu products because I’m aware it is generally a raved about brand and definitely one I’d like to get on board with. I’ll be keeping my peepers peeled for other products to sample as soon as possible.
