At the Circle of Anti-Aging Beauty with Mun Skin

Mun Skin Care Review

(Mun Akwi Purifying Cleanser | Mun Anarose Rose Toner | Mun Ayour Body Serum | Mun Aknari Brightening Serum | Mun Argan Oil, Travel Set: $75)

Revisiting my favorite serum and a few new favorites from the natural skincare brand Mun. This brand might look familiar to you, I raved about Mun Skin way back in 2012. Mun is still carries my all-time favorite serum, now called Aknari Brightening Serum and switched from infusing Moroccan Rose to Bulgarian Rose in their products. “Aknari is Berber for Prickly Pear, the defining ingredient in the precious elixir. I love the meanings of each product, Mun is pronounced ‘Moon’. The brand works with Berber women’s coop to source Prickly Pear Seed, Argan, and Olive oil, so Mun Skin wanted to honor them.

Confession, I.. Alyssa have an exploratory obsession with Rose scented beauty products and fragrances. Especially authentic rose, and in particular Bulgarian Rose scented products. It actually started with the first rose product I ever tried, Mun’s Aknari Brightening Serum. It was this sensory experience that kicked off my quest to find more rose scented products. But besides the unbelievable aroma, Aknari contains Prickly Pear Seed Oil and Argan oil which together are age-defying and brightening. Packed with antioxidants and essential fatty acids, the serum is lightweight and never looks greasy. In tandem these oils will have your skin looking soft and wrinkle-free in the long term.

(Akwi Purifying Cleanser, $60)

The Akwi Purifying Cleanser, Akwi for “awakening”, an apt name for an invigorating balm that brings the skin to life. This oil-based pH balanced cleanser uses Castor oil, Argan oil, Camellia Seed oil, and Rice Bran oil to sweep away impurities without stripping the skin of essential moisture. All while providing antioxidant, anti-aging, and moisturizing benefits. It’s especially effective at dissolving makeup and one pump of product comes out as a white, lightweight cream. As I apply it and begin to massage the skin it turns into a clear balm that looks like a gel but feels creamy and soothing. Starting with dry skin and dry hands, I like to dispense about 8-10 pumps of product into the palm of my hands, which is more than enough to cover my entire face. I keep adding water as needed, and then I grab a clean face towel and  start to remove whatever is left on the skin. The scent is enjoyable–fresh and uplifting, which is the reason behind its name, Akwi.

Continuing with Mun’s complete ant-aging line that includes the Akwi Purifying Cleanser all the way to a body serum. The Anarose Hydrating Toner, Anarose meaning “hope”, this multi-tasking toner safe for every skin type. Infused with hydrating Aloe Vera, soothing and anti-bacterial Rose Water, and exfoliating Willow Bark extract, this formula will become your go-to toner. Especially since there are tons and tons of toners on the market, it can be hard to choose which is right for you. But with Anarose, it doesn’t contain harsh and aging alcohol like most toners. You’ll reach for it time and time again.

Mun Skin care Review 3

Mun Ayour Body Toning Serum, “Ayour” is berber for moon, a play on the name of founder Munemi Imai. This powerful treatment for the body softens, smooths and tones the skin. The silky, fast-absorbing formula is enriched with Moroccan Olive Oil, a highly effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that brightens and evens out skin tone. Combined with Cucumber Seed Oil, it works to fight free radicals. Together, Rosehip Seed Oil and Prickly Pear Seed Oil minimize the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles. Lavender, Neroli and Frankincense soothe skin and provide anti-aging benefits. This fast-absorbing serum leaves the skin moisturized and silky-soft. Effective for all skin types. The scent is subtle, rare even, and unique. A body serum that’s silky and skin-quenching, plus has aromatherapy benefits that create a calming, relaxed vibe- what could be better?
