Today I am excited to share with you some products that I've been loving lately from a brand called MUSQ. The MUSQ products are Australian owned and made, and based on a simple philosophy to "keep it clean, kind and simple".

This means that the skincare and makeup products are made without chemicals, but rather made with he best possible natural ingredients. This simplistic philosophy also comes out with their understated, yet super stylish monochrome packaging featuring either black bottles with white writing, or white bottles with black writing - right up my alley, as I never can resist a timeless monochrome design.

I put a selection of products to the test, including the Lemon Myrtle and Mandarin Hand Wash, which became a favourite from the very first use. As well as Lemon Myrtle and Mandarin, it is also enriched with Eucalyptus, Tea and Rosewood to help keep the skin clean and the senses energised, all while being free from soap fillers.

The bottle looks incredible on my powder room, and the zesty and fresh citrus scent is just amazing, I almost make up an excuse to go wash my hands, as I love how the beautiful scent continues to linger on my hands afterwards. I only wish there was a matching hand cream available too.

Next up is the MUSQ Replenish Serum which is an oil serum made from among others sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, camellia seed oil, rosehip oil, sea buckthorn oil, soybean oil, lemon myrtle oil, as well as rosemary leaf extract, CoEnzyme Q10 and Vitamin, to help boost the skin's natural rejuvenation process and help it promote rapid healing and repair, and prevent and repair free radical damage by strengthening skin cells.

The serum is so concentrated that just a few drops morning and night is all that is needed before using your usual moisturiser and makeup. Unfortunately my skin is on the greasy side, so I did find this too rich to use under makeup, but have been using it at night, where my skin as enjoyed the extra boost. But I do wake in the morning with a skin that is soft, smooth and glowing, and clearly enjoying the overnight treatment. I also love the fresh citrus scent that no doubt comes from the added lemon myrtle oil.

Then there's the MUSQ Gel Cleanser, which contains among others chamomile, cucumber eucalyptus leaf oil and lilly pilli fruit extract and is designed to gently clean even the most sensitive of skins. It has a gorgeous natural scent and creates a soft later that cleanses away my makeup (although struggling with my eye makeup, but then again, most cleansers do and a waterproof one is required!), and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth, and without being stripped from essential oils.

Finally, there's the MUSQ Crème Foundation, which comes in a stylish round black compact with a large internal mirror. It is again made without unnecessary chemicals, and has a light consistency, so it feels light on the skin, yet it still gives a medium coverage, easily covering pigmentation, redness, bags under my eyes and blemishes, and even on my slightly greasy skin, it manages to stay put all day, without settling into lines or sliding off my face, though at mid-day powder touch up is required to take the shine off my t-zone, but that's pretty standard for most foundations on my skin. The compact makes it easy to apply with either a sponge or a brush, though personally I prefer a brush, as it really does give a nice even and almost invisible, yet healthy look. This foundation is sure to become one of my favourites, and because if it, I am now very keen on getting my little fingers onto other of the MUSQ makeup products including the blush or the coloured correctors.

So all in all very impressed with these products from MUSQ - they not only look incredible in their monochrome packaging, but they are so lovely to use too - I'm very likely to repurchase especially the foundation and hand soap, and again very keen on exploring other products from their range too, and I highly recommend that you do too.
