Product Rave: Monu Moisture Rich Collagen Cream

If you read my blogpost on the recent GLOSSYBOX, you will have seen I received Monu Professional Skincare Moisture Rich Collagen Cream. I have been using this cream constantly this week, I LOVE it, and have to say it's one of the best - maybe the best face moisturiser I have tried to date! That's saying something as I have tried loads ranging from high end to budget - so I had to write a post to rave about it!

Firstly I should point out that I have normal/combination skin that tends to be dehydrated especially on the tops of my cheeks and forehead. The cream is described as 'rich & luxurious to relieve dryness and smooth fine lines - and it certainly does all of that! The cream is suited for dry, very dry and dehydrated skins and I also think this would be great for mature skin.

The cream contains natural ingredients and no parabens: comforting rose and geranium essential oils, evening primrose and blackcurrant seed oils with essential fatty acids to repair skin lipids. Shea Butter & Sodium Hyaluronate to improve the skin's barrier function and natural betaines to stimulate the skin's hydration process. Marine collagen to help smooth fine lines and plant flavonoids with antioxidant action to help prevent pre-mature aging. Yep I don't understand what most of that means either but what I can say is it actually works!

The 50ml tube is a really good size for travelling and as it is so rich a small amount goes a long way. It is a rich luxurious cream that is a dream to apply and has a clean scent that's not overpowering. The cream sinks in nicely and works immediately plumping up the skin, super hydrating and creating a healthy glow. My skin has never felt so silky smooth afterwards and feels almost like new skin! This is one of the few products that I have received to date in beauty boxes that has been a new brand I have discovered and I can say I will definitely re-purchase. 

The cheapest I have found the cream is £16.25 including free delivery from Feel Unique, which is very reasonably priced given it is such a excellent mosituriser, does what it says on the tin tube and contains good quality natural ingredients. Of course you can also get it in this month's Natural GLOSSYBOX if you have subscribed! Have you ever tried Monu Professional Skincare before?


  1. this sounds great! the only thing i worry about is wether it will irritate my sensitive skin?

    1. I have used this moisturier before and it didn't irritate my skin and I would say I was fairly sensitive, however, I know that Monu also do another moisturiser called Recovery Balm which is specifically for sensitive/irritated skin - I have heard some good things about that one too - might be worth trying that?

  2. I have to agree with you, i love it!! its the best cream iv used and will definitely be buying once mine is used up, glossy box did well with the April box i thought. x

  3. Totally agree. And the perfect complement to the Collagen Cream is my personal favourite, the Monu's Micro Exfoliant. This is great for sensitive skin, where 'normal' exfoliators would be too rough, but gives a great, polished finish. Available from

  4. Totally agree. And the perfect complement to the Collagen Cream is Monu's Micro Exfoliant: this is great for sensitive skin, where 'normal' exfoliators would just be too rough. Although gentle - and with the most gorgeous scent - this gives great results. Available from

  5. I love Monu - I adore both the skin perfecter and recovery balm... but I haven't tried this one yet. Defintely going to grab this one too - I'm not surprised you're raving about it! :) xx
