The new year is all about getting yourself back into shape. Not just physically but also mentally and habit-wise. Eating healthy and kicking those bad habits can be tough during the first few months of the new year. Especially when all you have been doing during the December holidays is party and soak up the sun.
Well, it’s time to make some changes to your lifestyle and what better way to kick it off than by changing your skincare regime to something that will leave you feeling renewed, refreshed and rejuvenated. Understanding that your skin doesn’t need to suffer post-holiday blemishes, Mon Chéri, a skincare line formulated in France, introduced a range of Sun Crème Collection and Aloe Vera Collection to help rejuvenate the skin and accentuate a woman’s natural beauty.
Mon Chéri Sun Crème
The Mon Chéri Sun Crème Collection is designed specifically for Asian skin type with extensive UVB protection (SPF 50) to prevent sunburn and high UVA protection (PA+++) to prevent skin from tanning. Enriched with marine algae and natural antioxidant to shield and replenish skin from the harmful UV rays, the Sun Crème also effectively minimizes fine lines, lightens skin tone and nourishes skin.
According to Caroline Oi, CEO of Mon Chéri Essentials, the formula used is quick-absorbing, light and non-greasy. “The marine algae used in the formulation helps in minimizing inflammation caused by the harmful UV rays and rehydrates the skin. This is simply because when applied topically, marine algae, a seaweed, has moisture-binding properties and reduces inflammation.”
The Sun Crème is available in three variants – Tinted Sun Crème SPF 25 PA+++, Clear Sun Crème SPF 25 PA+++ and Clear Sun Crème SPF 50 PA+++. The 30ml product retails at RM50, RM50 and RM128 respectively.
Mon Chéri Aloe Vera Collection
To soothe and moist the skin after sun, Mon Chéri has introduced the Aloe Vera Gel and Aloe Vera Cleansing Wipes. Containing 98% of aloe vera with hypoallergenic formulation, the gel helps improve theskin’s natural firmness while keeping it hydrated at all times. Besides its cooling properties to relief sunburns, aloe vera also contains anti-inflammatory properties to treat skin problems such as blemishes and acne. It also softens skin and delays visible signs of aging such as fine lines and appearance of wrinkles.
The gel is suitable to be used on both, the face and body, and is free of common irritants and ingredients such as paraben, artificial colouring, alcohol and mineral oil. It can also be used as a mask before bedtime because of its powerful healing properties which can work overnight to heal and replenish skin moisture.
On the other hand, the Aloe Vera Cleansing Wipes is a solution that acts as a make-up remover with skin cleansing additives. The wipes contain aloe vera and natural herbal extract that can effectively wipe away layers of excess sebum (oil), dirt and cosmetic residues, including waterproof mascara. Causing no irritation, the wipes maintains the skin’s natural moisture balance.
“Besides cleansing, the wipes can also be used as a quick solution to hydrate and removes skin tiredness on the go. Using it leaves behind a clean, luminous and fresh looking skin,” said Caroline. The 150ml Aloe Vera Gel retails at RM26.80 and the 20-sheets Aloe Vera Cleansing Wipes is sold at RM22.80. Purchased together, the Aloe Vera set retails at RM35.00.
