MUN No.11 Anarose Rejuvenating Rose Toner

MUN Rose Toner Review Giveaway

The launch of MUN No.11 Anarose Rejuvenating Rose Toner* was a much awaited one for me. You guys know I love toners in general, and I had the chance to get a little test-drive of this one at A Night for Green Beauty in LA so I could not wait for the official release. What stood out to me initially about this toner is how soft the skin feels upon application and the beautiful, yet delicate scent of it.

No.11 Anarose Rejuvenating Rose Toner* has a rose water base that is made with hand-harversted rose blossoms from Bulgaria. In line with the other MUN Beauty hero, the N0. 1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum, the toner also contains Prickly Pear Stem Extract, which provides essential amino acids, flavones, and antioxidants to rejuvenate the skin. This is the full list of ingredients:

De-ionized Water, Rose Hydrosol* (Rose Water), Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Maltodextrin, Opuntia Ficus-Indica (Prickly Pear) Stem Extract, Lycium Barbarum Fruit (Goji Berry) Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract*, Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract, Jasminum Officinale (Jasmine) Flower Extract, Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract, Xanthan Gum, Vegetable Glycerin, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol. (*CERTIFIED ORGANIC) 100% Natural. 92.5% organically derived. Vegan

I had a very pleasant experience with this formula and I found it particularly satisfying a few weeks ago when my skin got dry and a bit flakey, as I began to try a serum that contains natural retinols (YULI Modern Alchemist). I find it to be an effective hydrating toner that makes the skin feels soft and supple (ingredients like aloe vera juice, hyaluronic acid and glycerin are great to bind moisture to the skin). I also enjoyed the application itself, as this product does not come with a misting nozzle, but has to be poured onto a cotton round an then patted on the skin. It has a lovely old school feel to it and it wipes off any product residue left on the skin after cleansing. However, I feel like I should have been more careful dosing the product as I ran out of it quickly (in less than two months of use). UPDATE: The product packaging has changed and this toner come with a spritzing nozzle that comes out as a fine mist. Every bottle I have used ever since has been lasting much longer (3-4 months). I have repurchased it a few times, and I have discovered that it is even more beneficial to my skin than I previously thought.

Bottom line is that I will definitely purchase this toner and rotate it with the Cocoon Facial Elixir. Cocoon is great to calm my skin when it’s irritated and N0. 11 Anarose is excellent for hydrating it. It belongs on my toner podium together with the YULI facial elixirs. I also think that the price point is very good, considering that other high quality rose waters retail for a similar price (Tammy Fender, MV Skincare), but do not contain all of the additional water binding and  regenerating ingredients that this toner contains. If you are on the market for a toner, this is a great one to try now that it’s particularly cold and dry (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) and we all need a little extra help to keep some moisture in our skin. If you use MUN N0. 1 Aknari Serum, this toner will make the perfect base for it.

You can find the product at The Detox Marketat leVert Beauty and at the official website MUN Skin.

    Hi Lilly! I love your blog! Is the scent in this toner very strong? How is the scent compared to the No. 1 Aknari Brightening Youth Serum and the Kahina Toning Mist? I am searching for a new toner but I am pretty sensitive to strong scents and found for example both Yüli Elixirs (Panacea and Cocoon) too herbal and strong for my nose. The Kahina Toning Mist is my favourite, but really expensive here in Europe for only 50 ml.

    I’m about a quarter into my first bottle and really love it for my very dehydrated winter skin. I mix it with whatever oil I’m using at the time and pat it onto my skin (a tip I got from you, I think). However, I dislike the lack of a spray nozzle – feels like wasting product – so I had to transfer it to another bottle. Bummer as this one is beautiful.

    Hi Lilly, Great contest! I never win anything but I’ll enter anyway. For some reason the pinterest picture isn’t working for me. Any tips?

  • Nadia

    Lily, love MUN Products. Have the serum and adore it, hope to win this so I can try it. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Alexandra

    oh, fun. :) A new MUN product to try out and love. Because of your elaborate and convincing review of MUN’s youth serum, I searched high and low for it in German beauty shops; finally found it online and tried a sample. It’s exquisite, indeed.
    I’d love to try out the toner. It is not available in Germany yet so winning the toner would be amazing.

    Love your blog!!!!! Thanks for this great give away!!! Greetings from France !

  • Thanks for the wonderful giveaway :-)

  • Sounds amazing, as to be expected. And, I’ve been on the market for a new toner. The ingredients are lovely!

  • Rhonda

    Hi Lilly how do you apply this toner? Is it a spray or do you put it on cotton pads? Will it be too much exfoliating if my skin is pretty fair and sensitive? The Yuli Cocoon Elixir is the only toner I have been able to use without getting my skin red or splotchy. Thank you!

  • I’m like you — obsessed with toners, and I was also quite delighted to apply this one the “old school” way with a cotton pad! Mun is so smart with her formulations and packaging. Everything is so elegant! I am so excited to see how her lines grows. Glad you are loving this one as much as I am! xoxo

    Sounds as a great and very gentle toner, I really
    like the scent of rose, years ago I was thinking is too strong but with years I
    did change my mind. And I must admit that rose does wonders to my skin. I am
    from Bulgaria and can not say we have a great cosmetics there but is so weird
    to read that such wonderful product(s) are made around the world exactly from
    roses from Bulgaria:) Wonderful and informative article as always Lilly
