Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive : A Natural Multi-Tasker

Multi-Tasking Beauty Oil

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.

A Peek Inside My Closet

Personal Style

So I talked about having a uniform of sorts for the summer and I definitely have some go to pieces for the cooler weather as well. This fall I've been kind of living in sweatshirts/light sweaters and skinny jeans paired with sneakers or boots. These are a few pieces that I recently added to my wardrobe. I received these Vigoss Chelsea Skinny Jeans at an InStyle Holiday event I attended. I'd heard of the brand but this was my first introduction to their jeans and I love the styling and fit of this pair so much that I plan to get another one soon. The embellished sweater is from Metaphor by Sears. Now Sears is not somewhere I usually shop but their newly relaunched Metaphor brand has some really cute pieces and they're so affordable. I really liked this top when I spotted it at the same event and found it on sale for $21.99 a week later. I thought this Banana Republic "Little Black Sweatshirt" was a cool takeoff on the Little Black Dress and it's proven to be a great layering piece. I bought these Bare Traps boots in January of last year but couldn't wear them at all last winter because of my injured ankle so I consider them new now. They couldn't be more comfortable and it's nice to be able to wear footwear with a little bit of a heel again. This style isn't available anymore but this pair and this pair are similar.

What are you currently wearing?

Equitance Brightening Serum + Spot Corrector Review


A number of brightening products make up my skincare routine at any time since I'm constantly on a quest for a luminous complexion and vanquishing the freckles/dark spots on my face. I'm actually currently using four as we speak so when I had a chance to add the Equitance Brightening Serum + Spot Corrector, I couldn't pass it up. This product is part of the Equitance Brightening System and Equitance is a brand which has been on my radar for awhile.

About the Brand: Rooted in Japanese traditions and inspired by beauty in nature, Equitance was founded in Japan 18 years ago on a quest to uncover the mysteries of radiant beauty. Today the company's landmark research has culminated in an exclusive pathway to vital vibrant skin. Representing the best of Eastern and Western research and practices, Equitance Skin Care brings precisely balanced botanicals and clinically proven technology together to continuously brighten the skin.

Key Ingredients: Linoleic Acid is extracted from safflower seed oil, purified and put into an exclusive brightening system to target the appearance of dark spots and improve skin brightening and radiance. Ascorbyl Glucoside is a vitamin C derivative with skin brightening properties. Cherry Blossom Leaf Extract which possesses properties to soothe and soften rough skin is culled from Japanese sakura trees. Shell Ginger Extract which is derived from the Japanese alpinia speciosa leaf has intense moisturizing properties to help brighten skin.

Packaging: An elegant looking rose gold colored stand up tube which you squeeze to dispense the product. I prefer tubes in general since they are hygienic and you can cut them open when you get towards the end so as not to waste any product.

Price: $125 for 1.0 fl. oz./30g.
