Monu Illuminating Primer SPF15

I sound like a bit of a primer nerd with consequent posts on skin bases lately but I have to say I have quite been enjoying this Monu Illuminating Primer this season. I usually don't care about primers as I feel they are only an extra added step in skincare which can be skipped quite frankly. However this one by Monu has a lush texture and absorbs quite well in the skin. 

It's free from added colours and scents hence making it suitable for sensitive skin. Although it feels thick and creamy on application, it's quite lightweight on the skin and leaves behind a demi-matte, silky finish with a slightly radiant effect. Quite a lovely one to slather under matte finish or high coverage foundations to sheer them out a little and to make skin shine through. 

It is pretty good at oil absorbing as I didn't notice any smudging, smearing or oily patches on the skin after a day of wearing this. I did however find it a little drying around the nose area or wherever you have dry patches so do moisturise and exfoliate well before popping this on to the skin. Of course, it has sun protection which helps and Vitamin E which we all can never have enough of. Besides that, it's paraben free, anti-ageing and light reflecting, making it a gorgeous one to slap on even on it's own on a good skin day or paired with a tan on a holiday.

Perfect for those with combination skin types who suffer from dehydration, dullness and early signs of ageing.
