Monu Skincare: Eye Cooler

There are some mornings when I wake up and find that my eyes feel extra heavy and tired and just refuse to open fully. A splash of cold water sometimes helps, but it's not the most pleasant method of solving the issue!

I used to roll a little Garnier Caffeine eye roll-on which cooled and hydrated the area, but stopped using this (for no reason in particular). I have since been testing the Eye Cooling Gel from Monu Skincare and I am really enjoying using it!

This little pump action bottle is so handy and can be slipped into your handbag or makeup/toiletries bag with ease. You just pump out a little of the product on to your fingers (I always use my ring fingers - clean fingers of course!) and apply under the eyes using a soft patting motion.

I use this in the mornings after moisturising my face; I notice an instant cooling feeling after applying the gel and it really helps to hydrate the sensitive skin around the eye - a huge plus in the cold weather, when my skin is super dry. I feel a little more awake and my skin feels less irritated and sore - I also notice less puffiness around the area.

The only negative I have found with this product is that the pump allows just a little too much product to dispense each time I use it. I find I am wasting some of the product and less is definitely more when it comes to eye peoducts.

If I am honest, I don't find the Monu gel any better or worse than the Garnier roll-on and I wouldn't pick between the two. I enjoyed using both and will continue to use the gel. I'm not sure if I would repurchase the Monu gel, at £16.95 it is more on the expensive side while the Garnier roll-on is around the £10 mark and they both do the same job as far as I am concerned. A nice product, but not one of my favourites from Monu!

  1. This would be ideal for summer. It is quite pricey but I've found that the Garnier liquid stings my eye area! x
