Rejuven-EIGHT is, if you'll excuse the pun, a nürishing moisturizer that's packed with ingredients that protect and regenerate your skin. A combination of pomegranate seed extract and anti-oxidant rich oils of red grape, carrot seed, raspberry seed, blueberry seed, cranberry seed, and broccoli seed deeply hydrates your skin and minimizes free radical damage. These ingredients also protect against future environmental stress and sun damage. Manuka honey (OMA 16+) moisturizes and is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It's also known to repair damaged skin and support skin cell regeneration. Last but not least, rhassoul clay - rich in silica, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, and sodium - evens skin tone and improves skin clarity, texture, and elasticity.
As the name suggests, Rejuven-EIGHT is intended as a day moisturizer, but I actually prefer using it at night. It's lightweight, sinks in quickly and provides a good base for applying makeup on top of, but I found that my skin ended up more shiny than usual midway through the afternoon on days when I used Rejuven-EIGHT as a morning moisturizer. Nighttime use, on the other hand, means I can liberally slather on as much cream as I want and my skin has a full eight or more hours to soak up all the antioxidants and other nutrients the moisturizer has to offer. Despite it's light feel, I gather it was just a little too much moisture for my skin during the day, as I've had no further issues with excess oil or shine since switching to using it at night.
The Bottom Line
Rejuven-EIGHT may not have worked as well as I'd hoped as a day cream, but I love using it as a nighttime moisturizer! It smooths on easily and works well, both on its own or in combination with a face oil, and in the morning, I wake up with glowy, soft skin. I've also noticed less redness since I started using this product. The ingredients are predominantly organic and it smells lovely - sweet and a little fruity. It's a subtle scent that's never overpowering and dissipates within a few minutes of application. Definitely a hit in my book!
