Assalamualaikum and hello love. How are you love today? I hope everyone is feeling okay since I have been sick and my skin has been acting up due to this hot weather. As you know I have been trying out a lot of skin care lately, well I guess this is the year I explore more skincare products. :D Anyway, when I I first the Lily Collection by Mon Cheri, I just couldn't stop smiling! Just look at the beautiful packaging! Pale pink and white stripes, individual boxes for each product and not to mention the actual product's packaging is stunning. Chic and luxurious! 5 stars for the packaging! :)
Before we find out more about the Lily Collection, lets get to know a lil bit about Mon Cheri first. Mon Cheri is formulated in France and it is proudly a Malaysian brand that is carried by Mon Cheri Essentials Sdn. Bhd. Mon Cheri is all about enhancing ones beauty with the most natural way. Le Fleur de Lis (Lily Collection) products main ingredient is the white Lily which has excellent moisturizing and regenerating properties to hydrate, soothe and soften the skin. Bare in mind that these products are free from paraben, mineral oil, SLS, lanolin and fragrance. It's great to know that skincare brand nowadays are concern enough to exclude these harmful ingredients in our skin care, kudos! The Lily Collection caters to 4 types of skin ; normal to combination, oily skin, dry and sensitive skin, ageing and sun damaged skin, and comprises 3 products which are the Gentle Cleanser, Toner and Moisturiser. I have dry skin, therefore I chose the products specifically for dry and sensitive skin.
Size/Weight : 180 ml
Price : RM80.00
Mon Cheri Gentle Cleanser is formulated using mild ingredients as that is the key to make sure that the product is gentle on the skin. Its important to include ingredients that can reduce and soothe redness, provides enough hydration, act as antioxidant and anti-inflammotary and promote powerful anti-ageing as well. The ingredients included in the Gentle Cleanser are Olive Oil, Trehalose, Centella Asiatica Extract, Chamomille, Licorice, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Rosemary, Japanese Knotweed, Baikal Skullcap Huang Qin, White Lily and Tocopherol Acetate which is Vitamin E that aids in anti-ageing and antioxidant. The scent of the cleanser is naturally floral which I believe is the scent of the white lily. The texture is quite runny so I can directly massage it into my skin (I splash my face with water before that). As I massage it into my skin, I can feel that the cleanser really soaks into my skin and feel that it brings out all the impurities in my skin. It leaves my skin feels refresh, clean and also it soothes my skin. I guess it really does it job as a 'gentle cleanser' because it does not irritate my skin. Do you know how sometimes you would experience the tight and squeaky clean feeling after washing your face? This gentle cleanser does not do that at all! Highly recommend this for those who has dry and sensitive skin. ^_^

The purpose of a toner is to remove impurities as well as to refine the pores. Its important to use a toner after cleansing the face as it can help to close down the pores. For dry and sensitive skin, this toner has anti-inflammatory agent to prevent acne break out and softens the keratin from the skin while maintaining the moisture. The ingredients included in the toner are Proteins, Centella Asiatica Extract, Chamomille, Licorice, Green Tea Leaf Extract, Rosemary, Japanese Knotweed, Baikal Skullcap or huang qin, White Lily, Aloe Barbandesis Extract, Allantoin and Geranium Oil. The toner scent is somewhat similar to the cleanser, florally fresh (must be the white lily). Toner is watery therefore using a cotton pad is ideal as it can soak in the liquid and make application easier. I always start my application from my chin and bring it upwards. I absolutely love the refreshing and cooling sensation that I feel whenever I use this toner. It soothes my redness and keeping my skin soft at the same time. A total must have for dry and sensitive skin!

Moisturiser's main concept is to keep the skin hydrated, soft and supple at all time. At my age, anti-ageing criteria is also crucial because lets face it, I want to slow down my ageing process (as slow as I could). I always say if you want to splurge on skin care, moisturiser is one of it! Mon Cheri Moisturiser is packed with vitamins, antioxidants soothing properties to keep the skin healthy and glowing. The ingredients included in the moisturiser are Sodium Hyaluronate, Meadowfoam, Pumpkin Seed Extract, Watermelon Fruit Extract, Lentil Fruit Extract, White Lily, Geranium Oil, Rosemary and Ylang Ylang. The texture is quite thick and creamy. I love it that the jar comes with a protective lid and a spatula for hygienic purpose. I always take 1 scoop of the moisturiser, put it on my finger and apply it at 7 points on my face and neck. 2 on my neck, another 5 dots on my chin, my cheeks, forehead and nose. Starting from my neck, I will massage the cream into my skin and bring it upwards. The moisturiser is fast absorbing and does not leave any greasy feeling on my skin. The moisturiser is a great way to end the skincare routine as it soothes the skin while locking in the moisture.
I highly recommend the dry and sensitive skin set (if you have dry and sensitive skin) because it really soothes my skin, keeps in the moisture and does not leave me with the tight feeling or dry patches on my skin. The scent is naturally floral which is quite strong but refreshing at the same time. You know that I don't like heavily scented products but this set is different since it is fragrance free so the scent is au naturale. You can purchase these 3 products individually or you can even purchase them in set just for RM280. I think the price is totally worth it, looking at the beautiful packaging and great products as well. Visit their website http://www.moncheriessentials.com to place your order! :)
