My Favorite Skincare Brand!10:45 AM
Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share with you my favorite skincare brand: InstaNatural. The first thing I'm going to start off by saying is: it's made from natural ingredients which is so, so important to me. As someone who suffered bad acne problems not too long ago, I've tried many different skincare brands, and I found that most of them tried to combat my bad skin problems with harsh chemicals like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, stuff that would usually just make my skin feel tight and sore.
Other than the natural part, I also love that InstaNatural is so readily available. You can purchase their products on Amazon, which I think is amazing because I'm a HUGE Amazon user (I even have Prime!). So if I wanted to order a product, I could just do so through my regular Amazon account, and then two days later (Prime) I receive my product!
And now… onto the actual products:
From left to right: InstaNatural's Age-Defying Moisturizer, Retinol Moisturizer, Eye Serum, Retinol Serum, Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Vitamin C Toner, and Cellulite Cream.
Cellulite Cream: This cream is super thick, as pictured above! It also comes in a HUGE tube. I love the packaging on these InstaNatural products because they have pumps and they're super easy and mess-free. I actually don't have cellulite, so I can't say much for how much this product works, however it is a very rich cream and I actually use this on my legs/body if I need a rich moisturizer. It contains Shea and Cocoa Butter, and it definitely smells like it does!
Retinol and Age-Defying Moisturizer: These are actually pretty similar to me, and they both come in very similar packaging. Both are shorter than the Cellulite Cream, standing at 3.4 fl oz, which is still quite a lot of product. Did I mention how nice the pump is? Both of these smell similar to your traditional moisturizer/cream. Since they have similar purposes: firming and hydrating skin, I would say that they both fulfill their jobs well. I feel like the Retinol moisturizer is a bit heavier. Also, the Age-Defying one contains AHA (alpha hydroxy acid), so it's important to wear SPF the day you put it on (just an extra step).
Serums: I love serums a lot. A couple months back I got my Vitamin C one from Valentia, and I have used it ever since. Needless to say, I was super excited to receive some of InstaNatural's serums. To be honest, I can't tell the individual difference these serums make when using them all at once in my regimen, so I guess what I'm trying to say is you probably don't need all of them. My favorite is the Hyaluronic Acid--it is so cooling and brings a lot of moisture back into my skin--perfect for the winter season. Also, the Retinol one is more of a watery/liquid-y consistency compared to the two others, which I thought was interesting.
Vitamin C toner: I'll be honest, I'm not a big toner user. I feel like they tend to dry out my skin and make it uncomfortable. However, this Vitamin C toner feels very light and it hasn't dried out my skin. The spray works okay, it doesn't diffuse the toner or anything. It tends to concentrate the spray in a small area with large droplets, so I will usually take my hands to smooth it out. Otherwise, this product does what it says.
Eye Gel: This product was what I was most excited for! As you can see above, the formula of this is a really nice water-y gel consistency. Also, this product is a huge 2 oz for an eye gel. Coming from a Stri-Vectin user household, this product feels really big and long-lasting (and it's also half the price). I really recommend this one the most. Also, the pump adds lots of bonus points (it's so annoying to squeeze little tubes… does anyone else feel this? Stri-Vectin…)
All in all, I'm really liking this skincare brand. Note, these products were sent to me in batches (not all of them at once), and I basically just held off writing this post so I could review them all together.
