Instanatural Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum #Review plus a bonus item!

Hello! I'm back with yet another great product to tell you about that is sponsored by Brand Backer and InstaNatural! I received these two products free of charge in exchange for my honest, unbiased reviews and opinions.



You can find the first product which is the Age-defying skin clearing serum, here  I received a generous sized jar bottle that is 1 fl oz. I love the deep color blue of the jar!

 A little info from their site:

  • Soothes Blemishes - This skin clearing serum also contains ingredients to soothe blemishes and irritated skin, including 2.5% Retinol, 2% Salicylic, Tea Tree Oil & Niacinamide. Our formula contains professional strength 20% Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that repairs damaged skin and protect against future damage, in addition to Hyaluronic Acid, which boosts the skin's ability to retain moisture. These two ingredients work well together to renew skin and reduce the signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

  • Best For Men and Women For All Skin Types - Also Reduces Appearance of Fine Lines, Winkles, Sun Spots, Age Spots, & Skin Discoloration

  • I really like that is has 2% salicylic acid and 2.5 retinol.. I feel like those two ingredients really help at clearing  up my skin and it is hard to find products with that amount of salicylic and retinol in them not to mention actually being in the same product together AND being all natural.




                                       HOW I USE IT:
    I start by washing my face and I use my Instanatural pore tightening vitamin c facial toner (this stuff is ahhhmazing!) then I ad a dropper full (I love love love these droppers that come in the bottles!)
    and apply it to my face and neck. I also use it on my chest or wherever I have some blemishes I use it daily in the morning and night, or if I have to wash my face mid day. I have sensitive skin and it does not dry my skin out.

    The next product I am going to tell you about has replaced a high end product and is now a staple in my beauty routine,  it is............

                                   THE PORE TIGHTENING VITAMIN C FACIAL TONER!!!
    You can find it on their site here at $17.49 for 4 fl oz you cannot beat that deal!
    Some info from their site:





  • Contains 100% natural and organic ingredients – Also has Vitamin C, an essential nutrient that is vital to developing skin health and youthfulness. This antioxidant is needed in order for the body to produce collagen, which is what keeps your skin elastic and supple. Vitamin C is a great way to restore a youthful complexion by helping to strengthen your skin to protect and fight against environment factors that speed up the signs of aging. InstaNatural toner also preps pores for serums and moisturizer and is great for men and women.
  • Shrinks and purifies pores – When pores are clogged, they appear bigger because they are easier to spot. InstaNatural toner contains powerful astringents - such as Witch Hazel and Tea Tree Oil - which purify your skin by cleaning and tightening pores, shrinking their appearance.
  • Hydrates and preps skin– Each soothing mist delivers instant refreshment to your face. As your skin is hydrated, the MSM in the formula works to penetrate your pores to increase their elasticity. Your face will become more receptive to absorbing serums, oils, and moisturizers applied thereafter. Our Vitamin C Facial Toner is a great way to prep your skin for your beauty routine.
  • Combats oily skin – Those with oily skin will also rejoice using this reviving facial toner. The ingredients in InstaNatual toner work to combat and remove excess oil, while restoring your natural pH levels so your skin is balanced. This formula is gentle and suitable for all skin types.


  • This product smells amazing! Its like a citrus lemon scent and my face feels refreshed and clean after I use it. sometimes ill use it as a pick me up during the day. it does not dry out my skin it actually hydrates my skin. I think I am going to try using this as a setting spray and see how it does. I  have been sick for almost 2 weeks so I have not put on any makeup but I will  post a follow up with how it works as a setting spray!

    I think this is going to be a great product during the summer since I do not wear makeup unless I work. Summer in Texas is brutal and there is no way you can wear makeup with out it melting off of your face, so I love products that I can carry with me and freshen up with.
    I love the spray on the bottle, it distributes an even amount of product all over my face and I either let it air dry or ill rub it in.

    This is also great for combating oily skin! usually my T-zone is a crazy mess halfway through my morning but I have noticed that my skin is so clear and hydrated and the greasiness is gone. I would literally have to wash my face a few times through out the day.

    I am very satisfied with these products. I was very skeptical about them being able to clear up my skin because I have literally bought every facial wash and cream from the stores that have let me down over and over again. I could not be happier with my results and now I'm not embarrassed of how my skin looks!

    Have you tried any of  InstaNaturals products yet? If so what have you tried? If you haven't tried any of their products which ones have caught your eye?

    I see a rose water they have and I am dying to try it!

    Thanks for reading and I have another product to share with you soon! Hint: it is from InstaNatural but it isn't skin care related........more so beauty & health related.. Its exciting!

    See you soon!
    XOXO,

    Youth Express Eye Gel + 2 bonus products #review

    This is post is sponsored by Brand Backer and InstaNatural. I received these products free in exchange for my honest, unbiased opinions.

    Hello again!! so I have been trying three products from InstaNatural they include:
    1. Youth Express eye gel 1.7 oz
    2. Youth Express eye serum 1 Fl oz.
    3. Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer 3.4 oz


                                           These products stay on my makeup table!

    You can buy the Youth Express Eye Gel here


    Youth Express Eye Gel
    here is  a  description from their site:


  • Youth Express Eye Gel contains a potent combination of ingredients for maximum results. Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the skin and plumps it up with moisture, while Matrixyl 3000 firms the skin and Plant Stem Cells enhance its strength to protect against sun damage and other external aggressors

  • Diminishes Dark Circles & Puffiness - This gel provides all around care and protection to the eye area. This powerful formula will help reverse the signs of aging and revert your skin back to its natural youthfulness. It will help you tackle dark circles, eye bags, crow's feet, fine lines, sagginess and puffiness so you can obtain a healthy and radiant appearance.

  • Safe and Natural Ingredients - We are proud to use natural ingredients in our product with NO parabens, sulfates or alcohol. It is also full of organic ingredients and safe to use on ALL skin types.

  • Apply to your cheeks and forehead as well to moisturize your skin and prevent premature aging. Improve your tone and texture to attain a smooth and brilliant complexion. Made in the USA in our FDA Registered Facility to ensure top quality for our customers.


  • The eye gel is nice! It doesn't have a scent and it goes on so smooth and dries quickly and is not sticky or oily. I use it under my makeup with no problems.  I  use it on my eyes, under my eyes as well as my cheeks and my forehead. One pump of the product is enough to cover these areas. 
    The directions say you can use it night and day which is what I do and you can actually use it on your entire face to fight against the signs of aging which is pretty good!
    For $19.97 I feel like this is a steal for such a great product. I have sensitive skin and I have not had any problems.
    I do have a small wrinkle under each of my eyes while they are not noticeable to others I see them and I have noticed that they are going away which makes me HAPPY! :)


    The second product which was a bonus product is the Youth Express Eye Serum
    you can buy the serum here
    here is a description from their site




  • Powerhouse Formula – With a combination of Vitamin C, Plant Stem Cells, Astaxanthin, Kojic Acid, Caffeine, Hyaluronic Acid and more, InstaNatural’s Eye Serum is uniquely formulated with innovative key ingredients to help reduce bags, wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin and more.

  • Diminishes Dark Circles & Puffiness – Caffeine provides a stimulating constricting effect that helps to reduce puffy, tired-looking eyes. Meanwhile, Niacinamide and Kojic Acid work to prevent pigmentation from forming to lighten and fade away those stubborn dark circles.

  • Reduces Wrinkles & Fine Lines – Other ingredients in the blend – such as Vitamin C, Plant Stem Cells, and Astaxanthin – serve to strengthen skin and reverse existing damage, while Hyaluronic Acid locks in moisture to help plump up skin and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

  • Lightweight Yet Effective – InstaNatural’s Youth Express Eye Serum is lightweight so it absorbs easily into the skin to quickly deliver antioxidant benefits, and it can be used under makeup as well. Each bottle contains no harmful parabens, sulfates or alcohol

  • This serum smells so good! that's the first thing I noticed. It smells citrusy if that's even a word :)
    . The serum dries fast and does not leave a oily or sticky residue which I love because its easy to wear under my makeup.

    The directions say to wash and pat your skin dry then apply a toner. Apply  the product under your eye from the inner to the outer corner. This product is my savior towards the middle of my work week when my eyes are swollen and puffy and dark. It gives me a refreshed, vibrant look.
    Honestly you will not find another product like this for only 21.95 that is all natural and cruelty free.

    The last thing I was able to try was the Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer
    you can purchase it here
    a brief description from their website :

  • Maximum Strength Retinol – With a 2.5% concentration of Retinol (Vitamin A), InstaNatural’s Retinol Moisturizer provides a strong dose of this renowned anti-aging antioxidant to deliver optimal results. It is the Perfect Night or Day Cream to Reduce Wrinkles and Other Signs of Aging – Hydrates Skin and Restores Even Skin Tone & Texture for a Youthful Radiance

  • Reduces Blemishes and Breakouts – Vitamin A has also been known to help with blemishes. By removing dead skin and unclogging pores, Retinol can help control breakouts so you can achieve a clearer, smoother, flawless complexion. 

  • Hydrates Skin – InstaNatural’s Retinol Moisturizer formula contains a creamy blend of nourishing ingredients, such as Jojoba Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, and Shea Butter, which keeps skin well hydrated. Once applied, the retinol cream will leave your skin feeling soft and supple throughout the day.

  • Before I started using InstaNaturals products my skin was horrible. all of my pores were clogged especially on my cheeks and chin area. Ever since I started using the different products I have received my skin has been looking so much better! my pores are releasing all kinds of gross stuff and the retinol cream has hydrated my skin and helped reduce the dark spots that were left behind from my blemishes.
    You can use this in the morning and night but it is recommended that if you have sensitive skin to use it only once a day. Distribute a small amount on your face and rub it in a circular motion let it dry before you apply your makeup. This also dries fast with no oily or sticky residue
    A little of this product goes a long way. I use a pea size amount for my face and neck. For 25.95 this is a steal for the amount of product you receive!


                  my skin is clearing up I love it!

    This product shows to be out of stock on their website but you can buy it from InstaNaturals amazon page here


    I am very pleased with the products and the results I have had in over a week. If you have been fighting with your skin like I did in the past I recommend that you try these products and also check out all the other products they have to offer.

    Have you tried these products from instanatural? If so, comment below and let me know which products you have tried if you haven't what products are you interested in? I'd love to hear from you!

    Thank you for reading and I will be back soon with more reviews!

    Instanatural Dead Sea Mud Mask review + 2 bonus products!







    Hello again!
      This post is sponsored by Brand Backer and InstaNatural. The following review is my opinion based on my person experience.
    I am excited to tell you about these 3 products I received to try. I mentioned in my previous post that for 2015 my resolution was to take better care of my skin and honestly InstaNatural has made this "journey" easy. All of their products are all natural, cruelty free and the best of all is that they are affordable and perform above  the leading department store brands for over half of the cost! It really doesn't get any better than that! What they sent me: (1) 16oz jar of 100% all natural* mineral infused Dead Sea Mud Mask, (1) 1 fl oz bottle of Retinol Serum, (1) 3.4 fl oz youth express night cream
                               http://instanatural.com/collections/body-hair/products/dead-sea-mud-mask

    The first product I tried was the HUGE jar of the Dead sea mask
    Product description:
    InstaNatural’s Dead Sea Mud Mask is an all-natural detoxifier and purifier that comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea. More than a million visitors each year flock to this extraordinary body of water in the Mediterranean, which contains many minerals beneficial to the skin, such as magnesium, sodium, bromine, potassium and calcium. Once applied, this mud mask treatment starts working to absorb excess oil, dirt and toxins from the skin. It is great to expunge acne, pimples and blackheads. It also helps to restore an even skin tone for a smoother complexion. When used as a body treatment, the mud mask can soothe and relieve muscles aches and pains. Whether used on the face or the body, our Dead Sea Mud Mask is a superb in-home spa treatment that will reveal more vibrant, refined, healthier skin.

    100% Natural - InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask is made from Pure Dead Sea mud to ensure the highest-quality product. This formula is all-natural and arrives in a 16 oz. jar to deliver premium value.
  • Apply on the Body - This mask also includes a nourishing blend of Organic Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Calendula Oil, and Hickory Bark Extract that provides unsurpassed moisture to soothe dry and irritated skin. Men, women and teens with skin issues can seek help by using this natural remedy.
  • Great for Acne & Blemishes - This detoxifier and purifier comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea, which is known to contain many minerals beneficial to the skin, such as magnesium, sodium and bromine. These elements work to extract excess oil & dirt from the skin and purge blemishes.
  • Age-Defying Benefits - Using this facial mask once a week also helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Applying the mask will improve your skin so you can achieve a more even skin tone and smoother complexion.

  • Blogger Tip: When applying this mask or any facial masks use a foundation brush instead of your hands so you do not transfer oil and bacteria on your face.
     
     
    I applied a thin layer of this mask on my face avoiding  my eyes and mouth area. I let it dry for 10-15 minutes.  Once the mask started drying it was starting to itch so I decided to remove the mask even though I still had a few wet spots. When I removed the mask I noticed my face was red from where the product had been. It didn't hurt and it actually cleared a lot of clogged pores  I had been fighting with. I read a tip from another beauty blog that you can use any facial oil to help protect your skin from the salt in the mask that is what causes the redness and itching. My skin was already dry from the winter weather. I am going to try the face oil next week when I do my weekly mask or I will apply it to the areas that need it most. Overall I am satisfied with my Dead Sea Mud Mask
     
     
     
                           The next product I was able to try was the Retinol Serum
     
     
    Product details : 2.5% Retinol Protection - Protect against the signs of aging with InstaNatural's powerful Retinol Serum that helps reduce the appearance of sun damage, deep wrinkles, dark circles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and more.
  • For a Smooth & Even Complexion - Soften blemishes, clear pores and remove dirt, grime and dead facial skin with a combination of Witch Hazel, Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid that leaves your face feeling clean and renewed.
  • Supercharge Your Skin with Powerful Antioxidants - InstaNatural's potent blend of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Green Tea antioxidants work together to help repair damaged skin around the face, eyes and neck. Apply day and night for best results.
  • Offers Superior Hydration - Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin, with moisturizing ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Jojoba Oil. Provides long-lasting hydration for softer, youthful-looking skin.

  •  
     (you can purchase it here)
     
    After I wash my face and use a toner I apply the retinol serum. I use this at night since I have sensitive skin, if you have normal or oily skin you can use it in the morning and night just make sure to apply sunscreen during the day after using the retinol.
    I really like that his bottle has a dropper that makes it easy to dispense the right amount of product. It dries fast and has an amazing, fruity scent. This can be used under your makeup with no problem. I have noticed my breakout spots have started to disappear since using this product.
     I love this serum and have incorporated it into my daily skin care routine I haven't had any problems or reactions with it.
     
    The last product that I received was the Youth Express Night Cream
     

    You can purchase it here



    Product Description:


























    Anti-Aging Benefits - With Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Matrixyl 3000, Rosehip Oil and Argan Oil, our night cream formula helps to improve your complexion and reduces the signs of aging in skin. This facial moisturizer can be used regularly to combat wrinkles, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and more.
  • Soothes Acne & Blemishes - InstaNatural night cream contains 5% Niacinamide / Vitamin B3, which has been known to help soothe acne by reducing redness and inflammation of irritated skin. It also helps to lessen the appearance of red marks left behind by aggressive breakouts.
  • Deeper Hydration - This luxurious cream offers ultimate nourishment to the skin. Take a few dabs of this thick and creamy mixture to cover your entire face and neck.
  • Made in USA - Each bottle of InstaNatural Anti-Aging Night Cream Moisturizer is made in our FDA registered facility.

  •  
    For this product it is recommended that you clean your face, apply a toner, use any serums if possible then apply a few dabs of the youth express night cream on face and neck.
     
    What I love is that a little bit of this goes a looong way! other creams and moisturizers I had to use a ton of product just to moisturize my skin and you do not want to do that when you are spending a ton of money on a product. Another thing I love as I have said before is that these products are so affordable! This 3.4 oz cream is on sale for 19.99 seriously?! That is a steal.
     
    Overall I am very satisfied with all of my InstaNatural Products and I feel very fortunate and thankful to have been able to try out these all natural products that are helping my face clear up. If you are tired of wasting your money of products full of chemicals and blowing money on mediocre products I suggest you give these products a try.
     
    Have you tried or looked up any InstaNatural products? If so id love to know leave me a comment!
    Thanks for reading!

    InstaNatural Vitamin C Moisturzier & Vitamin C Serum Review

     
                                                      Happy  2015 !!!
     My new years resolution is to love myself and my skin and to take better care of it so 
    I was really  excited to  receive these two products through Brand Backer from InstaNatural to review and share my thoughts with you!


      
    My skin has seen better days, lets be honest.. now that I am older my skin is more dry than it used to be and I tend to get these dark spots where a blemish was.
     
    The first product I used was the Vitamin C serum. After washing my face and applying my toner I use one drop of this on my face and another drop on my neck. Unlike the other serums I have tried this one absorbs quickly and dries without being oily.  I really love the smell it has a faint orange/citrus scent and the glass dropper is my favorite part of the packaging, It gives it a high end look/feel and I feel fancy when using it! For $21.95 you really cannot beat that price for such a great product.
    This product contains:
     20% vitamin C
    Hyaluronic Acid
     which works together to help your skin retain moisture and fight signs of aging and hyperpigmentation.
      2.5% Retinol,
     2% Salicylic,
     Tea Tree Oil 
     Niacinamide.
     Retinol and Salicylic Acid which unclogs pores and gets rid of redness and inflammation.  You can read more about the product and purchase it  here on amazon.
                                                        (serum is on the left & moisturizer is on the right)
     
    I have noticed a great change in my face since I've added this to my skin care routine, Before I had red sensitive cheeks from my rosacea. Just about anything would burn my face so I was really surprised that this didn't burn or hurt my face when I used it. My redness on my cheeks has gone away and all of my dark spots from old blemishes are almost non existent.
     
     
     
    The other product I was sent was the Vitamin C Moisturizer. What I really loved about this right away is that its not just for your face. I can use it on my arms, shoulder, neck chest etc.. and it is suitable for all skin types because it is a light weight cream. My skin is either oily or dry so I will be able to use this all year round!
    This  product helps protect against fine lines and wrinkles as well and also brightens your complexion. I have noticed my skin looks more alive if that makes any sense? I use this after I apply the serum. I have read some reviews saying that the moisturizer takes a while to absorb. I didn't have that problem, however, a little goes a long way. I used this under my makeup for the first time the other day and I didn't have any problems or complaints.
    Once I run out I will definitely purchase this product. 
     
     
    The packaging is fun it came with a little stopper that keeps it from coming out while you are traveling I really appreciated that. This bottle is HUGE and such a great price at 19.97 seriously, have you seen the prices at Ulta and Sephora for skin care products? 
    You can read more about it and purchase it for yourself here

    They produce these products in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. They also offer a money back guarantee no matter where you buy their products and are cruelty free!

    Be sure to check them out on facebook  twitter and of course their website!

      November Beauty Subscription Boxes *REVIEW*

      When the first of the month rolls around I can't help but to feel all giddy inside!
      I have been an Ipsy subscriber for a year now, beautybox5 I've been with for about four months and this month was my first box from Birchbox.

      What I love about these beauty subscriptions is that I get to try a handful of products for 10-12 dollars a month (each) so one product pays for the whole bag! You really cannot beat that! I  have found so many companies that I fell in love with and I would not have known about them without these beauty subscriptions. To name a few would be pop beauty, be a bombshell, jcat... the list could go on and on.

      Ipsy:10.00 a month
      What you get: a makeup bag and 5 beauty products to try. Once you try your products review them and earn points, which can buy you more products! They also have something called : "IpsyME" they offer products at a discounted price just for ipsy members. I will show you what I received this month.

      From left to right: Be a bombshell cosmetics eye base in the color submissive, IT cosmetics bye bye under eye full coverage anti-aging waterproof concealer in neutral medium, Temptu highlighter in pink pearl, J-cat wonder lip paint in the color red potion and the last product I received was Marc Anthony oil of morocco argon oil volume shine hairspray 

      *Bombshell eye base: this is a light gold shimmery base that looks great alone or under eyeshadow
      * IT cosmetics concealer works great under the eyes and or covering pimples scars etc..
      *Temptu highlighter: I'm not sure about this product I used it one time and it left a streak so I will have to watch a video on it and see if I'm using it correctly. It is a liquid so its a new concept to me.
      *J-cat lip paint is a great product its a bit dark for me but I like it, I wish it was a matte stain I'm thinking of maybe blotting and putting powder over it so it will be. but a great product either way.
      *Marc Anthony hairspray leaves a soft hold with a light scent.

                                And for the Ipsyme event that I scored last week for $18
       
      This was such a great deal and I love all of these products!

      Beautybox5:$12.99

      I love this whole entire box also!
      What you get: from left to right, DenTek floss picks&case, dove deep moisture body wash, HASK macadamia revitalizing shine oil, L'Oreal Paris nail color, Laura Ashley body butter,  This box is a bit more than the other two at 12.99

      *DenTek floss& case is such a great product I toss these in my bag for when I'm on the go.
      *Dove deep moisture body wash smells great and leaves my skin soft.
      *HASK macadamia revitalizing shine oil is such a great product I love to rub this on the ends of my hair while wet.
      *L'Oreal nail polish this gold color is gorgeous! it dries fast and has just enough sparkle
      *Laura Ashley body butter smells great and leaves my skin soft.


      and my first box so far... Birchbox! $10.00


      What you get: from left to right (back, The balm cosmetics cindy lou manizer highlighter, Dr Jart ceramidin cream,
      Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy body wash, Amika perk up dry shampoo,Juice Beauty green apple peel, and Jusin's chocolate almond butter

      *The balm highlighter is such a pretty color I fell in love with it when I first swatched it!
      *Dr Jart ceramidin cream smells great and keeps my skin bright looking and moisturized.
      *Gilchrist and Soames body wash smells great!
      *Amika perk up dry shampoo : I was really hesitant to try this because all dry shampoos leave a nasty white residue on my hair and make my hair feel dirtier than what it was to begin with. With this product I didn't get that feeling and it smells so good

      thrift store finds

      I live in a small town and I hate having to drive more than 20 minutes to go somewhere. The closest mall is about 45 mins to an hour away depending which one I go to. When the next town opened  up a thrift store I was pretty excited! I have  found so many brand new name brand shoes for under $10.00 a piece. I will share a few pictures below of what I have found this past few weeks.

      the nude heel is from fergies line called fergalicious and the pump is called "Eileen" you can find it at dsw for 39.95 in three different shades. I only paid 6.00!
      The snake skin pump  is from Gianni Bini and retails for 89.00 and I only paid 8.00
       
       

                                                       The red COACH pumps retail for $198.00 I paid $12.00
                                                   And the back NINE WEST pumps retail for $69.00 I only paid $6.99

      I like to go on the weekends because it seems like people tend to drop off more merchandise during the weekend. I try to go every weekend.

      Have you ever shopped at GoodWill or a thrift store? Share some of your finds with me!
      I will share some more of my finds with you next time I go.

      Have a safe and Happy Halloween! Thanks for reading
