The "Redness-Reliever" or the "Stressed-skin-saver" - I'm still contemplating which to nickname this skin balm. Monu Soothing Touch Recovery Balm claims to comfort all skin types especially sensitive skin. It applies in a light gel-like consistency that is easily spread and quickly absorbed by the skin. It leaves the the skin soft, I would say it is mildly hydrating as there are some dry patches left unmoistened.
I love how Monu Soothing Touch Recovery Balm quickly dries which means I dont have to worry too much about a sticky base when applying foundation (this is especially handy in the morning). The smoothing effect also helps like a gentle primer.
In terms of calming down redness I believe this is a fantastic product. The medicinal soft rose scent with the cooling feel immediately relax the senses while the product itself reduces redness and inflammation. There are reports of rosacea sufferers benefiting from this product, which I find is amazing. For a product marketed for sensitive skin I do wonder about the fragrance, although it does not bother my skin at all.
Overall I would recommend Monu Soothing Touch Recovery Balm for its redness reducing abilities from mildly erythematous to inflamed post-treatment skin to rosacea, but if you're a dry skin sufferer in need of moisture for the winter dry I would suggest looking elsewhere. If you have oily skin however this might be a good moisturiser for you!
