Review: MONAT Rejuvenique Oil Intensive, for skin and hair

15 Feb 2015

I’ve been obsessed with oils lately. Argan Oil in my hair and Vitamin C Oil on my face… every single day! I have to admit, at first I was skeptical about putting an oil on my face on a daily basis, because I have oily skin. However, I tried it and I got hooked! My skin is not as dull anymore, has a healthy glow instead. Also, my hair is not the frizzy mess like it used to be.
Recently I was sent a new oil to try that’s for both skin and hair. It’s called Rejuvenique Oil Intensive and it’s by MONAT. Its key ingredient is Abyssinian Oil. I had never heard of this particular oil before, but after some research I found out that it’s said to be better than my beloved Argan.

I wasn’t planning on trying my Rejuvenique Oil right away, because I’m still working on the oils I have. I wanted to finish those first, then try something new. But of course I couldn’t resist! This oil looks so luxurious, smells delicious (like a lemon pie!) and I love the fancy bottle it comes in. And turns out…this oil is really, really nice! 🙂
It’s a little expensive, but much more powerful than what I was using. I love that I can use this on my face, body AND hair, multi-functional products are great! If you’re looking to step up your skin and haircare game, this is definitely the way to go! Below are the details.

​​​​I’ve been using this oil daily. It’s very thick, but I have oily skin and it hasn’t broken me out. What I do is: I take a few drops, rub them in my palms, and then apply it on my face before bed. Even though this is a thick oil, it gets absorbed quickly and leaves my skin feeling really moisturized, not greasy.
In the morning I do the same, but instead of putting it on my face, I put it in my hair, concentrating on the ends. It’s a great split end tamer and makes my hair look healthy and shiny. Whatever is left over on my hands, I apply to the back of my hands. Works like a charm and smells lovely!

​​​​​Where to buy:​​​​​​ ​ ​
You can find the MONAT Rejuveniue Oil Intensive at It retails for $99. (for 1 fl. oz). I know this is a bit on the expensive side, but if you’re looking for something to splurge on (something you can use multiple ways!), I would definitely keep this in mind. I know I’ll be crying when I run out…

  1. I have this too and I really like it! I mainly use it as a deep conditioning hot oil treatment. 🙂

  2. I just started to use the MONAT Rejuveniue Oil and can see and feel a difference between the argon oil i was using. I decided to become a market partner because I was so happy with the results!

  3. I love to use the oil too. I mix it in with the leave-in conditioner and use it on my daughter’s crazy curls and they are defined and much easier to make them look beautiful. I love that it is so much healthier to use than the crappy baby shampoo.

  4. Hey Mellisa! That’s actually a great idea! I’m going to try it 🙂

  5. I make a very similar formula and wanted know what color the Monat is to understand if they are using much of the Buruti and oils with actual vitamins or diluting it with meadow foam which is clear? If anyone can post or send me a pic that would be awesome.

  6. I just learned how to make a detangling spray for my curly kids. I used a little spray bottle, a couple of drops of Rejuvenique oil, and a couple of pumps of Restore Leave-in Conditioner and filled the rest of the bottle with water. It has been working great! It makes their hair easy to comb through and gives their curls more definition and shine that lasts all day.

  7. If you have hair lost, and a crowning top,will Rejuveniqe by Monat regrow your hair?

  8. I love this oil as well, and I mostly use it in my face. I’m wondering if the lemon peel oil and the lime make this a photosensitive product?

  9. I love the oil so much . I use to use argan oil on my hair but since switched . When I realized how amazing it was I decided to sell it as well . let me know if you want more 🙂 !
