Monu Spa's Enriched Body Cream Review - 100% Natural Essential oils with Marine Collagen and Vitamins A, E and B5.
About Monu Skincare -
Monu are a brand that respects the natural resources of nature and ensure that all their products are from the finest natural ingredients
Monu believe that your body should be as healthy and natural as possible and that is why they ensure their products lie within the highest standards to achieve that.
Here is their promise -
Monu offer A shop by skin Type option-
They also have an option for all skin types or by product type.
This makes it easy to navigate and find the products that you are looking for ensuring you have the correct product to suit your skin needs.
In researching this product I have found that Monu also have a unique partnership with a brand called Dermaco and although they have very similar morals about the natural ingredients , Dermaco prices are a little more than Monu themselves .
So as you can see above , there is nothing that concerns me about having this Brand Monu on my skin.
I feel safe knowing that the ingredients of the products and the products themselves have been tested on other humans and they hold natural oils that can only be good for me.
In fact I have already enjoyed this Skincare Range and you can see my review for one of their Tanworx Range here .
The natural products they use in their products make a self tan even look natural, I was very impressed.
Monu sent me one of their most loved Products- The Enriched Body Cream .
This Item can be bought from Monu for £20 for a large 200ml tub.

What my thoughts are on Monu Spa's Enriched Body Cream -
For me , the idea of having more of a product in the minimalist packaging is always a great thing.
This 200ml hard plastic tub comes in a cardboard square box which for me is uneeded as I will eventually remove it from the box and have it sitting on my dresser but it does make it look more professional .
I understand that this is something that would be greatly needed if someone purchases this as a gift for someone to look more presentable but I would love to see brands offer an option for their packaging of their products when they have their products packaged like this.
The crisp white packaging is eye catching as the mustard green wraps around the packaging and it gives a sense of freshness about it .
You can find all the information needed about the brand and the product just by looking at it.
There is nothing worse than owning a body cream that you apply every single day that smells of chemicals and lingers into a nasty smell all day.
For me I like a refreshing scent , something that is natural yet stays on my skin for a long length of time with an invigorating aroma.
This cream has that with its Lemon and orange blast of coolness.
You can also smell a warm woody smell (Rosewood) which then makes the whole thing smell floral but fruity and I like that, especially as the citrus scent comes through more.
The scent to me is something I love and actually reminds me of a lemon cologne my mum used to buy from Turkey every year when visiting.
The Enriched Body Cream -
As you may know already , I am quite fussy with cream consistancy. I like a nice thick cream that I can smother on my thirsty skin.
I also hate anything that leaves a greasy feeling on my skin .
This Body cream is not as thick as my current body cream but still holds its shape as a thick cream should, but as you rub it into your skin it spreads evenly like butter and dries very quickly.
There is no greasy feel left behind and all I feel baby smooth and my skin is so soft.
Marine collagen is something I have never heard of but owning my own marine tank, I was very interested to see if it was infact anything to do with fish and here is what it is.
Marine collagen is a material derived from the substance found on fish scales.
Ok so having fish scale substances on my face was the last thing I was expecting in this product but there is most definitely no texture or scent of fish at all so this does not bother me what so ever.
The interesting find about this is that this collagen is natural and the Japanese have been using this for years as an anti ageing product to diminish signs of ageing and also decrease the negative effects of toxins.
Monu have definitely done their research on finding the best natural products .
My conclusion -
This product holds so many beneficial ingredients land essential oils that are pure and natural for my skin.
You have cocoa butter to help dry skin to soften and protect, Chamomile and Liquorice to soothe, Vitamin A to repair and soften and Vitamin E to work as an antioxidant and cell repair vitamin and also Vitamin B5 to help promote a healthy balance of moisture.
I love how the cream soaks into my skin and leaves a refreshing zesty scent which refreshens not only body but also my senses.
My ski feels amazing after the use of this and over the past week it has been a lovely edition to my daily routine.
Ii only need to use a small amount to get the coverage I need and like I said before my ski is very thirsty so if I am only needing a small amount I am sure this will last a long time for me .
I would recommend this product, especially if you are looking for a planet friendly product which uses only the finest and best natural ingredients needed to give you benefits such as nourished and rejuvenated skin .
Monu is most definitely for everyone, even those who have sensitive skin.
Have you tried Monu before, will you?

Monu sounds like a quality ethical product, I would really love to try their body cream.

No I haven't tried it, to be honest I am so useless in any sort of skin care routine it would probably be lost on me x
29/5/2014 02:37:13 am
this sounds lovely, might have to treat myself!
29/5/2014 03:19:37 am
This sounds lovely but i'm always reluctant to try new body creams as the one i use currently has been my trusted friend for years now! xxx
29/5/2014 03:24:15 am
Sounds lovely, I do like a nice smelling body cream :)
29/5/2014 04:35:54 am
This body cream sounds like it smells wonderful!
29/5/2014 07:11:16 am
Sounds gorgeous! Lovely review. I too hate that kind of 'chemical' smell with some lotions.
29/5/2014 07:36:11 am
This cream looks upmarket and it's good to know that you have tried it.I do love creams which smell good.
29/5/2014 08:54:35 am
i dont normally use body cream because not always remember to do it but its nice to learn about new products
29/5/2014 09:32:29 am
Oooh this cream sounds lovely! I love an earth friendly product that still looks and feels like a high quality brand!
29/5/2014 11:45:32 am
For me it all comes down to price. I refuse to be conned into paying through the nose for questionable results. If the price is right, I'll try it.
29/5/2014 01:55:58 pm
This sounds amazing - I do love a nice body cream.

Never heard of this brand before, but I too like a thick body cream as my skin gets very dry. Will give Monu a try.

I like products which are not tested on animals, so this one gets a bit thumbs up from me
31/5/2014 01:44:32 pm

31/5/2014 01:57:03 pm

31/5/2014 11:55:26 pm
the citrus scent would be a winner for me
