REVIEW: Monat Rejuvenique Oil

Packaging - 3 (average)
Scent - 5 (excellent)
Moisture - 4 (very good)
Weight - 2 (not very good)
Longevity - 2 (not very good)

I was definitely disappointed by this product. This is one of Monat's highest dollar items, ringing in at $99! I expected a silky serum that gave me long lasting hydration and quick absorption. This is what I got instead.

Let's start with the packaging. I LOVE the way Monat packages everything, and this one is no different. It looks beautiful, luxurious and high end. It's also made with quality materials and is sturdy! So why didn't it get a 5 you ask? Functionality. That is SO MUCH more important than looks. I struggled to get any oil in my dropper. It didn't seem to matter if I pressed the lid once or ten times. I tried taking it out first, sealing it tighter, all kinds of things. When I asked some local Monat Reps about it, and tried a few of their bottles, I had the same results and they said it's because you don't need very much. I HATE when people explain away faulty products and packaging like it's on purpose. Because you definitely need more than what I could get and I had to tip it over and pour it onto my hand, which was messy and definitely meant waste.

It did smell amazing. All of Monat's products smell incredible. It was also hydrating but I didn't feel like it was long lasting moisture. In fact I didn't feel like it's effects even lasted the whole day.

This oil is SO HEAVY. It is thick and slimy and heavy. It weighted my hair down a lot. It has high quality ingredients, but it is to heavy for my hair and skin. I use a lot of facial oil because my skin is so dry that it flakes and peels. This one made me break out, and it made my face feel greasy and coated. It was not good. My hair also felt like there was a coating on it, which I wasn't a fan of. And because this product is so thick and gooey you kind of have to use a lot. It works a little better on damp hair because the water breaks it up a little, but it doesn't work well on it's own. It made my hair feel to heavy and greasy and i had to use a lot of it.

HOWEVER - I think this product would be AMAZING for those with African or Latin hari that is very coarse, dry and textured. That hair type is more porous and has a hard time keeping in moisture. I think this oil would be amazing for them.
