MŪN Protect + Revive Moisturizer
You have no idea how many moisturizers I went through this winter already! I don’t know what’s up with our indoor heating this year, but my skin has never been this dehydrated in my entire life. Because of that, I discovered a whole new world of barrier moisturizers that I never really paid much attention to in the past.
MŪN skincare has been on my radar for quite a while now. I spotted their aesthetically pleasing minimalist bottles all over my Instagram feed, but never quite bit the bullet to try anything for myself. A couple months ago I finally got my hands on the brand’s latest moisturizer launch, and now I get what the hype is all about. MŪN is not just pretty packaging; the formulations are rooted in skin health & wellness and focus on balancing and nourishing your complexion in a gentle and natural way. The line is small and highly curated; every product has its own backstory and serves a specific purpose.
Protect + Revive Moisturizer ($65) was created to work for all skin types and is currently the only daily moisturizer offered by MŪN. The formula boasts Niacinamide, Kalahari Melon Seed Oil, Australian desert fruit extracts, and the brand’s signature Prickly Pear Seed Oil that started it all. This ultra creamy concoction promises to improve the skin’s barrier function, brighten, and provide anti-aging and anti-pollution benefits.
Even though it’s currently severely dehydrated, my skin is normally the classic combination type, with shiny T-zone and tight cheeks. because of that, it can be difficult for me to use products with Prickly Pear Seed Oil which are more suited for people with dry and normal skin types. However, in this gel-cream formulation, MŪN did a great job balancing out the heaviness of Prickly Pear with other ingredients that can help it absorb better, like Black Cumin Seed Oil and Watermelon Seed Oil, which are both rich in Linoleic Acid that prevents the pores from getting clogged.
I didn’t use Protect + Revive Moisturizer enough to see the brightening results, but I noted that it makes my skin feel supple and nourished almost immediately. It is a very good barrier cream that can be soothing and calming if you somehow compromised the acid mantle.
