Am I the only one out there slacking when it comes to skincare? My night time skincare routine has been thrown out of the window by exhaustion thanks to my active toddler, well since she has been here really, I just need to stop being lazy when it comes to skincare and other things really, maybe to be addressed in another post, who knows. But, I think I do pretty well with my morning skin care routine. I have very oily skin, my whole face gets shiny, strobing got nothing on me. As oily as it is, my skin needs to be hydrated, and finding a hydrating moisturiser that worked well and did not leave me looking like a shiny mess a few minutes after application has been hard. Not anymore, simple hydrating light moisturiser is really good though, especially winter time but hands down the best hydrating moisturiser for oily skin is the Monu Hydrating Moisturiser SPF 15!!

I received a sample of the moisturiser in one of the beauty boxes I was subscribed to early last year and fell in love with it straight away. It is from the brand MONU PROFESSIONAL SKINCARE that offer natural skincare. They are against animal testing, they use the best of nature such as plants, herbs, minerals and the products are made in the UK.

According to Monu Skincare, the moisturiser is formulated to prevent sun damage and premature ageing. Containing Instant Blur technology, it blurs imperfections and corrects skin tone. It is paraben free and can be used by all skin types.


Zinc Oxide provides a physical barrier against the sun's harmful rays.

Cassia Alata Leaf Extract reduces the visible signs of photo-ageing and protects the skin against UV damage.

Blackcurrant Seed Oils boost moisture levels, restores softness, elasticity and suppleness.

Vitamin E, an antioxidant, fights free radicals,


Protected, younger-looking skin today and tomorrow.


Apply every morning after cleansing and toning.


I am just going to go straight into it, this is by far the best moisturiser I have ever tried! It does not leave my face feeling greasy. Most moisturisers with SP tend to be too greasy for my skin but this one is just amazing. My skin pretty much stays matte all day, slight blotting here and there but nothing excessive like I normally get. My skin is a lot brighter and healthy looking, acne scars seem to be fading too.

The moisturiser is thick in consistency but sinks into the skin pretty quickly,  I usually use one and a half pump.

Priced at £29.95 it is a bit pricey, but it will last you a really long time and it is so worth it. It is safe to change your sun protection every year though, since SPF is not as effective after a year.

What type of moisturiser do you use?

Lots of love,

P.S You can get it for £23.15 on feelunique. Check out my previous post if you are looking for a moisturiser that does the same but with a tint in it and better SPF.



  1. Definitely on a pricey side for a student like me but am sure it does a perfect job. Are samples available for this? I like getting samples to try out pricey products.

    1. I have not seen any sample on the site but I am sure you can ask them x

  2. I use Clinique everything for face creams. I have three different ones and an eye cream depending on the time of year. But, I do want to branch out, so I might give this one a try! xx
