I used to subscribe to Glossy Box and this happened to be in a box a little while ago, I had used it a couple of times and then completely forgot about it! Then other day when I fancied some TLC and pampering and was looking through my beauty baskets and saw this, I was delighted.
The Monu warming aromatic mask contains natural clay, lavender and rosemary and is designed to be used on normal/combination skin. My skin tends to be on the normal/dry side but have used this mask with no problem.
When I first opened the bottle it was like I had been smacked right in the face with a bunch of lavender. The smell is super strong! It is quite hard to detect the rosemary but if you really really try it is hiding in there in amongst the masses of lavender. I wasn't expecting it to be quite so strong but I like lavender so this isn't a problem for me. If you do not like lavender this is definitely not the product for you.
Upon squeezing the product out of the bottle you will notice it is quite thick. In the past I have found that masks of thicker consistency tend to be alot better than the runny ones so I had high hopes for this.
The product rubs onto your skin easily then all that is left to do is sit and relax. I really liked the warming sensation of this product as it isn't hot as such it is just nice and gentle.
I cannot tell you how relaxing this mask is, it made me feel so calm and sleepy it is unbelievable. Not good during the day! The overwhelming smell of the lavender seems to calm down, either that or I'm too relaxed to care!
This product does not harden like some other face masks so after 10-15 minutes all you need to do is wash it off. The mask washed off easily with warm water and a little bit of help from some cotton wool pads.
After I washed it off my skin felt really cleansed and uplifted. In terms of amazing results I would not say that this is my 'go to' product for taming unruly skin but for a spot of pampering before bed time this is perfect.
This is most certainly not a cheap face mask with a 100ml tube costing between £22.95 and £27.00. I have a small sample and do not think I would purchase it for myself at full price as I am more of a lush face mask fan and find that these are more designed to target my problem areas. However, it would be something I would consider getting for my Mum who adores lavender and is in her forties as I think it would suit her skin more.
This is one of those ones which I do really like but think it is a bit expensive. So that will effect my rating. Would I purchase this in a sale for myself? Yes. Would I be likely to buy a small sample of this again? Yes. Would I purchase it full price for myself? No. This does tick a lot of boxes for me but the price means I have to knock off one star, four stars given.
