What is Monat?

It’s the best haircare and skincare products I’ve ever used. Literally. I cannot brag on this stuff more.

I tried it because a friend of mine used and was a Market Partner for Monat. So finally I said, ok I’ll try it. After just the first use, I was hooked. I couldn’t believe how great my hair looked and felt.

I loved it so much I decided to become a market partner too. I wish I had discovered this stuff sooner. It’s amazing. Literally in a month, my hair has grown almost 2 inches. It’s crazy.

So if you’ve ever been curious about Monat, here is some info on it. And today is the last au for amazing sales they are having. Shoot me a message if you want to learn more.

Why MONAT over other companies?

Our ingredients! A lot are exclusive to MONAT! Here are a few of our key ingredients!

🌱Rejuvaniqe is our blend of 13+ natural plant and essential oils rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidants, & nutrients that are highly compatible with the hair & skin.

🌱Capixyl is a peptide blend with red clover extract. It’s an emollient that helps to protect the scalp & create a rich environment for hair to grow. This is a very powerful ingredient for hair density.

🌱Procataline is formulated from a pea extract. It’s function is to create younger looking hair by protecting the strands from UV rays & environmental damage.

🌱Crodasorb also protects the hair from UV rays and is the primary ingredient we use to preserve your hair color. It will also keep your hair strong.

👑Our Rejuveniqe oil is our crown jewel & it’s infused in almost all out products!👑

▪️Rejuveniqe is a custom blend of 13+ pure botanical oils, including the exclusive ingredient, Abyssinian Oil.

▪️Abyssinian oil comes from the crambe abyssinian plant 🌱 native to the Mediterranean and East Africa- and currently the oil is produced on Prince Edward Island in Canada 🇨🇦 ⠀

▪️Abyssinian Oil has a unique molecular structure that is not found in any other naturally occurring oil. It has been shown to significantly improve skin’s complexion and hair’s luster through unique Omega 9️⃣ fatty acids. It also has a lower protein base, which means it gives the perfect amount of moisture, opposed to other oils with a high protein base that in time actually dry out the hair and make it brittle.

▪️Monat is committed to ensuring our Abyssinian growers are using sustainable farming practices in their daily operations. Monat also gives back a percentage of its profits to the farmers that grow and maintain our crops, in the spirit of gratitude for our planet 🙏🏼 🌍 ⠀

▪️It’s our crown jewel 💎 product for a reason. Dry scalp? Rejuveniqe. Oily scalp? Rejuveniqe. Damaged hair? Rejuveniqe. Dull, lifeless hair? Rejuveniqe. Sunburn? Cracked heels? Dry lips? Peeling cuticles? Yep- REJUVENIQE.

November BoxyCharm

I received my November BoxyCharm. It’s ok. I’m not super thrilled with it. But here is what I got:

Dominique Cosmetics: Celestial Thunder Eye Shadow Palette. Retails for $35

The colors are so bright and vibrant. Plus I love the two glitter ones.

Juice Beauty: Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment. Retails for $50.

Dose of Colors: Liquid Matte Lipstick. Retails for $18.

Vitamasques: Morning and Evening Mask Set. Retails for $12.

BoxyCharm: 2-Piece Brush Set. Retails for $35.

So that is what I received. It’s ok. But I have received a lot of matte lipstick, which I’m not a fan of, and eye shadow pallets. So I may need to go in and change my preferences.

What is BoxyCharm?

It is a monthly subscription box. For $25 a month and you get 4-5 full size products sent to you. I love it. If you want to try it, follow the link below.

Walmart Beauty Box

I received my Fall Walmart Beauty Box.

Even though my box is dented, this is actually a pretty good one. It’s only $5 each Box and you get 4 a year. One per season. Here is what I received.

First it came with this cruel Hydratherapy Wet Skin Moisturizer. I’m not too excited about this because it comes in almost every Walmart Box. So I have quite a few.

Next is the Blistex Deep Renewal lip protectant. It has spf 15 in it. I’m in need or more chapstick so this excites me. I tried it out and it feels amazing on.

Next I receive Bioré Witch Hazel Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. It came with one nose strip to try.

Next I received Pantene Intense Rescue Shots Ampoule. It’s a hair treatment to use after washing your hair to repair extreme damage and prevent split ends. I’ll give this a try since my hair is damaged from coloring it. However I have very fine hair so not sure if it will make it oily or weigh it down.

Next I received a Purifying Black Charcole Mask. I love getting masks. These are always my favorite. I’ve used this one before and loved it in the past.

And lastly I received a Schick Intuition F.A.B razor. I think Walmart was reading my mind because a new razor was on my grocery list. This one in particular has 5 blades.

So all this for $5. That’s a great deal. I’m super happy with this box and plan on continuing my subscription.

New Look

So I know stylists say you should get your hair trimmed and touched up every 6 to 8 weeks. But I don’t do that. I get mine done maybe 2 to 3 times a year max.

So I decided today to go and get my hair trimmed and highlighted. I brought in a picture of Kim Kardashian to show my stylist how I wanted my haircut. She has a blunt cut LOB.

Now I’m not a fan of Kim Kardashian. I just liked her haircut. And I know I’m no Kim Kardashian. So here is my before picture.

And here is my after.

I decided on the LOB because I am trying to grow my hair out. Of course I’m the type of person that says I’m gonna grow my hair out and then I get sick of the process and I go and chop it all off. But I’m trying really hard not to do that this time.

I also went a lot more blonde since it’s summer time. I think it turned out wonderful.

I really love my stylist Laynette Riley.
