Having struggled with acne as a teen and adult acne, my skin is a big deal to me! So I don’t just put anything on it! I need to be careful with what I use as some things can massively break me out and cause me months of trying to restore my average skin!
When Monroe London got in touch with me about trying a few products, I was initially intrigued by how great the packaging was (I know you should never judge a book by its cover) but I do, so I was instantly drawn to the product and after doing some research I decided to give it a go.
The range is in collaboration with The Harley Skin Street Skin Clinic so I knew the products were to be trusted! The range includes active ingredients that protect and repair your skin which is just what I need!
I tried 3 products from the range aimed at hydration, exfoliation and moisturisation (is that even a word?)
However the range is extensive! From Serums, Hair Clay’s, Hand Washes and Complexion Clearer’s, Monroe London have a huge range of fantastic skincare and men’s grooming products.
Moisturiser & Shave Balm SPF20 – 50ml
SPF is so important for our skin and I’m ashamed to say that this is the first EVER moisturiser I have used which actually has SPF in it! I normally don’t put any on unless on holiday which I know is really bad!
The Moisturiser & Shave Balm is super lightweight, and a little goes a very long way! It literally soaks into your skin and leaves it smooth and soft. Not greasy on my skin at all, and has a great smell (nothing overpowering) I haven’t used as a Shave Balm as I don’t wet shave but couldn’t fault it.
Active ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin A, Mandarin, Jojoba Oil, Chamomile & SPF which all contribute to increasing your skin’s elasticity, and helps speed up natural cellular renewal.
Exfoliator & Pore Minimiser – 60ml
I think this product was actually made for me . . . It removes dead skin build up, minimises pores, reduces spots and controls oily skin! HELLO THAT IS ME!
I love exfoliator’s and masks so I’ve been loving using this product. Due to my spot prone skin I used this daily for the first five days, and now use it twice a week. Again this product is very light on the skin, and there is no hardness or stinging while the exfoliater is on the skin (well my skin anyway).
Active ingredients include Glycolic Acid, Glycerine, Wheatgerm Oil and Chamomile which all contribute to smoother skin, calmer and refreshed looking skin.
Hydro Spray 100ml
This is the first time I’ve added a hydration spray into my skincare routine, a few sprays of this onto my face and neck in the morning before my moisturiser works a treat! Double hydration which is perfect for this time of the year (we have had sun in Brighton for 3 consecutive weeks – very unheard of!)
Whenever my face is feeling thirsty, a few sprays of the Hydo Spray will hydrate my skin instantly! Would be perfect to take on holiday and use by the pool!
Active ingredients include Aloe Vera, Cucumber, Green Tea, Thyme, Rosemary, Bamboo Extracts, Chamomile, Arginine HGH and is full of Antioxidants. The Thyme extract which helps to reduce acne, blemishes and hyperpigmentation really appeals to me!
So there is a little glimpse into some of the new skincare I am using! Monroe London is great value and from the 3 products I have tried, the quality is excellent! And they look great in my bathroom (sucker for packaging!)
Next up I really want to try the ComplexClear products to see how it works with my skin! Have you tried any products by Monroe London?
