The incredible Nighttime Dream Youth Serum MUN has just arrived at miomia. As Katie explains, “It’s been a challenge finding truly natural, clean skin-care products that work beautifully too. While a lot of organic products smell and feel lovely upon application, they lack the “oomph” found in more clinical products, On the other hand, high-tech products can sometimes be a bit harsh on skin. That’s why I love MUN so much – it elegantly bridges the gap between natural and clinical. It’s extremely clean, simple and natural; but does deliver like a high-tech workhorse.”

It is a beautiful product to use, infused with essential oils, it feels and smells sensational. Try it and wake in the morning to smoother, clearer, fresher looking skin.

MUN is available exclusively at miomia apothecary, 318 Bedford Ave Brooklyn 11211
