Monat Skincare Overview & Usage Instructions

I have written a few other posts about Monat haircare and also how to choose which Monat haircare product is right for you.

This post is some general information to get you started with Monat Skincare and your options of what is currently available.

In the effort to help you get the information as quickly as possible, and if you have been searching for some clarity, I have included this information. You can see my skincare store here. Please send me an email at happyhairlife {at} yahoo {dot} com if you require additional help.

Please note that you will get discounts for ordering products at certain dollar amounts, and for ordering pre-bundled systems.

I recommend buying the product at the retail price before committing to the product, the VIP agreement does have certain stipulations you’ll want to make sure you’re ready to adhere to.

PLEASE take a “before” picture in indirect sunlight so we can compare your results to use after 30, 60, or 90 days. I would LOVE to see your results!!

General details on how to use Monat’s new game-changing skincare

How to use Monat skincare in what order graphic

To cleanse your face:
1) Dampen your face and use about a pea size amount of your Monat cleanser, emulsify (add water and swirl together in your hands) well!
2) Use Berry scrub – 1-2 times a week
3) Essence – do 3 shakes into your palm, press into face gently
4) C. Radiance (AM) or Rewind (PM only) – 1-2 pumps, nightly!

AND…Did you know?
• The Rewind Nectar should only be used once a day and it should be used at night only. The reason being it has citrus in it and that can make you photosensitive. No sunlight after using!!

Because of cellular turnover- the skin goes into “repair mode” at night. We recommend using a mineral sunscreen with any healthy aging routine regardless if the product is applied day or night.• Also, if you are using any retinol products they should not be used with Rewind. The only time we recommend switching Rewind™ Age Control Nectar to daytime application is if using a retinol product in the evening.

5) Eye smooth cream – use your ring finger to pat the product under your eyes. Then use your roller in an out and upward motion until it’s absorbed.

6) Apply your favorite Monat Moisturizer or Night Haven (for night use) and enjoy your glowy skin!

Make sure to take a a ‘Before’ picture! You’ll definitely want to document the transformation and I would love to see your beautiful skin’s progress!!

    1. Hi, Misty! Thanks for asking. After some initial research, I don’t think they do, as you can use them all during the day (but there are special instructions on that in particular for the Rewind Age Control Nectar.)

      However, since I am not 100% sure on the answer to your question, I have reached out to Monat product services to see if they can help, and will post here once I get an answer, which shouldn’t take very long at all.

      Thanks so much!!

      1. Hello, again, Misty! I thought I’d already posted this answer here but apparently it didn’t post correctly, sorry for the delay. So according to Monat company reps, there are no retinoids in these products. If you have further questions on specific ingredients, feel free to email me ( and I can work with you on that. Thanks for asking!, I hope this helps!

  1. Thanks fir this post. Today I get good information about Monat and also will recommend these products to my friends.
