I'm very big on using oil in my beauty routine these days. I use oil to wash my face as well as to moisturize my face and body. I also use it on my hair as a conditioner and styling treatment. I recently had the chance to try out Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive which is an all natural multi-use beauty oil with a formulation that mimics the body's own natural oils to visibly replenish and repair hair and skin.
About the Brand: Monat Global is an innovative age prevention company that strives to understand and recreate what nature has always been capable of. Through extensive clinical research, they have combined ultra progressive active botanical ingredients with state of the art scientific technologies to produce safe, high quality, naturally based age prevention products.
Key Ingredients: The exclusive ingredient in this natural oil product is Abyssinian Oil which has a unique molecular structure that isn't found in any other naturally occurring oil and has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of skin and luster of hair. Rejuveniqe blends 10 other potent botanical oils: Meadowfoam Oil, Carrot Seed Oil, Camellia Oil, Buriti Oil, Baobab Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Tomato Seed Oil, Moringa Oil, Pequi Oil and Monoi Oil to enhance the effectiveness of the Abyssinian Oil. These botanicals also provide additional vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, nutrients and amino acids.
Packaging: A luxe, modern looking silver bottle. The product is dispensed via a dropper making it easy to control how much you use.
Price: $99 for 30 ml/1.0 fl. oz.
Usage: Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive is so pure and versatile that it can be used in multiple ways to improve the skin and hair. It can be used on hair as a pre-shampoo treatment, an intensive hydrating treatment, a leave in finishing treatment or an anti-frizz treatment. On the skin, it can be used as a moisturizer on the face or body. It can also be used to treat areas with dryness like cuticles, nails, elbows, knees and heels.
My Impressions: For an oil, the texture of this product is actually slightly watery. It doesn't feel greasy in the least and sinks in quickly to both hair and skin. It has a natural lemony citrus scent that I found quite pleasant. As a pre-shampoo treatment, it made my hair soft without feeling oily and was fairly easy to rinse out. As a post shampoo leave-in treatment, it left my hair smooth, shiny and manageable and more voluminous as well which I'm not sure is a good thing in my case. This has been my favorite way to use the oil and I think it works better than Moroccanoil. You also don't have to use much. I also tried on my cuticles and elbows and it moisturizes pretty well. I do like it's effects on my hair and that it is a multi-purpose product that is free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and other harmful ingredients. I don't really have anything bad to say about this product other than it is quite expensive and I think that is due to the nature of the ingredients. The way it works and absorbs definitely feels more luxurious than my coconut oil.
Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive can be purchased through the Monat Global website.
