Monu Spa Enriched Body Cream and Warming Ginger Massage and Body Oil Review

One Little Vice Beauty Blog: Luxury Natural Bodycare for dry skin

I discovered Monu as a brand through beauty boxes a couple of years ago, but then towards the end of last year I started using Monu's Illuminating Primer* and I was hooked (and it's now a daily staple in my routine). Since then I've tried more of their range and I haven't been disappointed! All of Monu's products are cruelty free and feel incredibly luxurious to use as they're packed full of high quality natural ingredients.

This is an interesting product as it can be used as a normal body oil but I think that it actually works best as a shower oil. You massage some of the product into your skin before you have a shower and then when the product mixes with the water it emulsifies into a really beautiful milky consistency that's both gentle and moisturising. It has a really powerful scent - the result of a mixture of Ginger, Lemongrass and Orange essential oils - and the scent-combination really does give a very spa-like feel to an otherwise normal shower experience. And with ingredients like Calendula and Jojoba Seed Oil - as well as Vitamins A and E - it's full of nourishing goodness that will leave your skin soft and supple. I'm a big fan of shower oils as they can completely transform your mood, which is something not every body product can do. I'm not the biggest fan of such a powerful ginger scent but if you like ginger then this will be just be wonderful to use. I like the consistency, the quality and the packaging - I just hope it's available in another scent that I can fall in love with!

For me, out of the pair this is the standout product. I'm always on the look-out for seriously hydrating body products that feel great to use, smell gorgeous and, most importantly, sinks into the skin as quickly as possible. Well, ladies and gentlemen, I've found what I've been looking for - and as far as I'm concerned Monu's Enriched Body Cream is just perfect. It has the perfect thick - but not too thick - consistency that feels beautiful when its massaged into the skin. It has a delicate but noticeable citrus scent, the result of a mixture of Orange, Lemon, Rose and Geranium Essential Oils, and you really don't need to use a lot to get noticeable results. It leaves me skin incredibly smooth and soft, probably due to ingredients such as Marine Collagen, Cocoa Butter, as well as Vitamins A, E and B5. Overall, the experience of using this body cream is very luxurious with incredibly effective results. It's great for everyday use or a weekly pamper - whatever your schedule (or your budget) allows for. I personally like reaching for it a couple of times a week and I'd definitely, definitely repurchase this as I think that it's great value for money.
