It’s been a long time since I’ve been so excited about a skincare product launch. It’s absolutely no surprise that I adore the entire lineup by MUN. I’ve written about the products more times than I can count as they consistently hold a spot in my daily skincare routine. (Here’s an in-depth review of the oil-based cleanser, serum, and toner.) Would the MUN Protect + Revive Moisturizer be yet another favorite?
It’s almost like Munemi (the founder of MUN) read my mind because the newest product is truly the moisturizer of my dreams. The moisturizer was sent to me pre-launch so I’ve been using it for a month or two and I have to say, BRAVO. Protect + Revive is described as a “gel cream” and is formulated with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Prickly Pear Seed Oil, Kalahari Melon Seed Oil, and Australian desert fruit extracts. This protective moisturizer improves the skin’s barrier function and increases moisture to effectively brighten while boasting anti-aging and anti-pollution benefits.
I love using oils on my face, but sometimes I crave something a little creamier. Listen, I was raised in the 80s – it was all about Oil of Olay and Pond’s Cold Cream, and erroneous or not, I correlate intense hydration with a light-colored cream. What can I say? It’s in my DNA! So, up until 4 or 5 years ago, all I really knew to use on my face was a lotion or cream. Then I made the switch to oils and oil-based serums and saw such an improvement in my skin, but always quietly wished for an oil-cream hybrid.
Well, it’s here and it’s simply amazing. This is one of those products that I can’t imagine not having in my life. It moisturizes, it smoothes, it smells lovely and fresh, AND it doesn’t leave any sort of tacky/sticky residue. I have tried a few green facial serums that could be described as a “gel-like” in texture, and all of them have felt so sticky on my skin. (We all know I have a claustrophobic face! Can’t stand when my skin feels like it can’t breathe, people! #letmeout)
This is the perfect last step in your skincare routine. Need a little extra hydration? Use MUN Protect + Revive Moisturizer. Feel like you’re missing something after applying your serum? Protect + Revive is your guy. Wanting an extra layer as we enter the cooler, drier months? HELLO, JUST TRUST ME. It fits right in with MUN’s idea of minimal effort, maximum glow.
I am so excited to have this in my arsenal. If you decide to add it to yours, don’t forget to use the code WHOORL for 15% off your order! As always, hit me up with any questions.
