Monat Hair Products

MONAT is naturally-based, gluten free, sustainable and cruelty free.   We use only the finest and safest ingredients.   MONAT products do not contain Parabens, Sulfates, DEA/MEA, Phthalates, PEG, Harsh Salt Systems, Silicones, Harmful colors, or Harmful fragrances.  Our Treatment Systems provide powerful, clinical results that address the effects of the environment, chemicals, product overuse and — most importantly — hair thinning, hair loss and aging.

**I only received  small samples, not actual bottle sizes of these products and my opinion is my honest opinion** so I tried it once. 

I tried the RENEW shampoo. I instantly loved the scent, but I was really impressed with the rich, creamy lather. It felt very luxurious and rinsed very clean. What I liked was that after I rinsed, my hair didn't feel straw-like as it typically does after shampooing and before conditioning. It felt clean and smooth and moisturized.

Apprehensively, upon exit of the shower and gently towel blotting my hair, I applied a dime to nickel size amount of the leave-in conditioner you see here:
It instantly absorbed into my hair, it left my hair with so much volume and body.

This is a prime example of high-quality products doing exactly what they say they will.

Rejuvenique Intensive Oil

I love how this oil just sinks into the skin. I have used it on my face for my dry skin and on my hair too. My hair is damaged from coloring so it does need some love. It can also be used after shampooing as a conditioning treatment. Apply to damp hair, then place a towel over hair. Leave on for 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse. Hair will be shiny and soft. Style as usual. Use as an anti-frizz treatment too, just apply a small amount to damp hair and work throughout hair. Style as usual. For skin, apply on skin after cleansing and let sink in prior to moisturizer. Can also be used on any area of skin that need extra moisture, such as elbows, knees or feet. 

Otherwise, I adore it. I used it twice and I look forward to seeing how it works long-term! I am growing my hair out, and I think this will help so much in keeping it manageable so I don't wind up whacking it off.
The price is definitely expensive for someone on a budget. However, if you can afford it, or are looking for a good splurge, I would highly recommend giving it a try!

What are your favorite hair products? Let me know!

How it works:
    •Protects skin and hair from damaging environmental influence
    •Helps naturally replenish sebum (the skin and scalp’s natural oils)
    •Alleviates dehydration caused by harsh cleaners and styling products
    •Replenishes the hair and skin by absorbing quickly and completely
    •Delivers significant shine, strength and manageability

Abyssinian: The Key ingredient in Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive. From the crambe abyssinica plant native to central Africa, it’s a rare and unique combination of fatty acids prized for their ability to do everything from mimic the effects of silicon for unbeatable shine; lubricate the hair deep into the follicle; and protect and coat each strand.

Baobab: The renowned baobab trees have grown for centuries in the arid climates of India and Africa, and its exotic oil from the tree’s seeds are rich in antioxidant-rich palmitic acid and Vitamin F.

Buriti: The fruit of Africa’s Moriche palm – known as the Tree of Life – is one of the world’s richest sources of beta-carotene, which moisturizes and nourishes.

Camelia: Also known as tea-seed oil, it’s ultra-hydrating oil responsibly harvested from China that cleans the scalp and pampered dry stands thanks to its abundance of Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Carrot Seed: Specially sourced from the mountains of Switzerland, it’s rich in Vitamin A to condition the scalp, plus Alpha Linolenic Acid for anti-inflammatory protection.

Monoi: Selectively sourced from the warm tropics of Tahiti, it’s a restorative oil rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids to heal damage and promote growth from the root.

Meadowfoam: This oil is sourced right from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Named for its flowers’ resemblance to white foam on the ocean, meadowfoam oil is another outstanding source of Omega 9 fatty acids for shine and sheen.

Moringa: Ancient Egyptians prized Moringa Oil for its nourishing properties, thanks to antioxidants and Vitamin E, which help combat skin fatigue, plus clean and purify the scalp.

PRO T.L.S. Mascara, Gel Liner and Brush by Studio Gear Cosmetics

My Review: 
I love the thickness of the mascara and leaves my lashes without looking clumpy. I love that it really makes my lashes appear to be fake. I did not have any issue with transfer onto my lids. The consistency isn't really wet so you can use it right away without having to let it sit out with the lid off like some mascaras. I think this mascara is amazing and worth every penny!

This is the most beautiful shade, it is everything I was hoping it would be. I have been using it on my water line, as a base and smoking it out.  It has great lasting power, and has quickly became one of my favorite liners. When used as a base I had no problems with it creasing. It is not black as you can see it is more of an earth tone. I love it so much I have been wearing it everyday.

Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque

Every day, skin is exposed to the damaging effects of the environment—pollution, UV exposure, extremes of temperature and humidity. Now you can help sleep away the day's damage and wake to beautiful, revitalized skin. This unique water-gel masque melts into skin, working while you sleep to attack the damage from everyday factors that can age your skin. A potent Anti-Pollution Complex, including antioxidant Lilac Cell Culture Extract and PHA/Bionics, helps neutralize the effects of daily pollution and environmental damage such as free radicals and harmful metals, that can break down collagen and prematurely age the look of skin. Overnight, Prodew® refills deep reserves of natural skin moisture known as NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor), restoring a feeling of suppleness and comfort. PHA/Bionics and Evening Primrose Oil strengthen skin's protective barrier for a stronger, more resilient tomorrow. Awake to beautiful skin with the damage behind you, deeply hydrated and stronger.

Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque Features and Benefits:
  • Hydrates skin.
  • Smoothes skin texture.
  • Restores skin while you sleep.
How To Use Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque:
After cleansing, smooth across the face and neck, massaging very lightly to allow masque to melt into the skin. Wait 5 minutes as powerful ingredients absorb. To seal in the benefits of the masque, follow with your usual nighttime moisturizer. Leave on overnight. Rinse in the morning and follow with regular morning skincare routine.

My opinion:

This was by far, one of my favorite masks. The texture is perfect, a thick creamy white paste which is so easy to apply to the face and easy still to remove.
This mask have left my skin feeling refreshed, soft, hydrated but more importantly, looking healthy!
I can’t express how much I love this mask. I’m most definitely buying this again.
The smell is amazing, the packaging is amazing, and for once, the results are amazing.
A million thumbs up!
