Monu Exfoliator

Tuesday, 29 January 2013

This product really did come at the right time. After getting used to the sample of Dermalogica's Microfoliant which I received in the November Glossybox, I ran out. Just as I was contemplating buying a full sized tub, this little beauty arrived.

A sample size of Monu Micro Exfoliant was included in January's Glossybox. Unlike Dermalogica's this micro exfoliant comes as a cream rather than a powder and is made using diatomatious earth (a soft natural rock). That said, the grain is naturally a little more course so after getting used to the gentle but effective daily feel of Dermalogica this felt a little rough. The instructions say to use it 2-3 times per week which is understandable.

Here are the main points
Grain - Similar to table salt
Application - This product works better if you add a little water to thin it out. That way you don't have to work so hard to maneuver it around your face. If you're looking for suds or lather this isn't the product for you.
Scent - Doesn't really have one
Ingredients - Contains lots of goof stuff including shea butter and papaya extract
Finish - Skin felt srcubed, but not as smooth and polished as when I used Dermalogica

If your skin can handle something a bit rougher and you want a product that's a bit more purse friendly, this may just be the trick.

Monu Micro Exfoliant - £14.50
