InstaNatural Vitamin C Moisturizer and Serum Review

Today I want to talk to you about a company called InstaNatural and their Vitamin C moisturizer and serum.

What is InstaNatural?

InstaNatural is a company that offers a range of beauty products that focus on using natural and organic ingredients. They offer skincare as well as body and hair care products. You can check out their website using this link.

Information About the Vitamin C Moisturizer

The first product I received to try was InstaNatural's Youth Express Vitamin C Moisturizer. This moisturizer is supposed to contain a blend of supercharged antioxidants and other powerful ingredients that help you achieve youthful-looking skin and ingredients in this product are supposed to work to repair existing, damaged skin and restore a healthier, even skin tone. This product contains Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Plant Stem Cells.

Information About the Vitamin C Serum

The second product I received was the vitamin C serum. The serum is supposed to provides instant hydration to the skin, help fight against aging, shrink pores, evening out your skin tone, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. This product contains Vitamin E and age fighting ingredients like Organic Rosehip Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Plant Stem Cells, Carrot Seed Oil, Pomegranate and more to boost you skin tone and look.

My results from the product

I used both products together for 10 days. I have dry skin which some parts that are very acne prone. I also have some discoloration on both of my cheeks. After 10 days I can say that both products have worked really well on the dry areas of my skin. I can also see a slight difference in the discoloration and my face does look a little brighter. A few days before I started using these products I had a small acne breakout. Even though these products are not branded to help acne, I wanted to see if this product did anything to help fight my acne so I cleaned my face with my usual acne product but switched my acne moisturizer for the Vitamin C moisturizer. I did this for 4 days and found that while the products did not help my acne they did not make it worse either. After the 4th day I decided to use both of the Instanatural products with my acne products (I mixed a little of the moisturizer and serum with my acne blemish treatment). This worked well for me and after a few days my acne breakout was gone.

Tips for using these products
  • Cleanse and tone skin first. It is always best to work with a clean face to avoid product build up 
  • If you are using the Vitamin C serum in conjunction with the moisturizer, use the serum first. The first day I used these products I use the moisturizer first and then the serum. Doing it this way I found that my face felt sticky 
  • Don't use the serum alone. I recommend using the serum with a moisturizer because like I said it may leave your face feeling sticky. 
  • Use the products twice a day for the best results 
  • If you suffer from acne be sure to use your complete acne system in conjunction with the moisturizer and serum to avoid breakouts 

My Final Thoughts

Overall I was really happy with my 10 day results. The products seem to be working well for my dry patches and my skin discoloration. It also works well together with my acne products. These products seem promising and if my results are still good after I use up both products I plan to purchase them.
