Insta Natural Product Review #1




I got the chance to try out some products from Insta Natural. I have had these for a while but I really wanted to give them a thorough testing. 


Youth Express Eye Serum

What it has in it:
Vitamin C
Plant Stem Cells
Astaxanthin
Kojic Acid
Passionflower
Caffeine
Hyaluronic Acid

Claims: (off website)
reduces the appearance of dark circles, puffiness & saggy eyes; diminishes the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines; increases elasticity, firms and plumps the skin around eyes; provides improved tone and texture of skin; hydrates the delicate eye area to prevent premature aging; helps you achieve a more radiant, brighter complexion

When you first look at this product you are like "oh my goodness its bright" but do not worry it sinks in nice and doesn't leave any residue or color. It also has a wonderful citrus scent. I am a sucker for good smelling products. I also like that a little goes a long way. 
The first time I tried this I was like oh this is good stuff. Then after maybe 5 mins my eyes burned really bad. I washed off my under eyes and my eyes felt better. So the next day I tried just a tiny amount and same thing. So I thought let me try to put on the eye gel on top to see if it would help um no it still burned. 



Youth Express Eye Gel

What it has in it:
Hyaluronic Acid
Plant Stem Cells
Amino Acid Complex
Peptide Complex
Matrixyl 3000

Claims: (off website)
to help with dark circles, puffiness and sagging skin. This blend of powerful ingredients increases elasticity and enhances the tone of your skin to provide a firm, plump appearance.

I first tried this during my morning routine. I used a little bit and let it sink in. It felt very nice and light and sank in to my under eye area nicely. It also has a nice fresh smell like cucumbers. 
I put on my makeup and my under eye concealer looked amazing. It made my concealer blend easier than usual. All day long my concealer looked perfect. So the next day I tried again but it was a different story. My concealer creased like crazy. I was like what in the world but I kept trying it and the same thing. I noticed it made my eyes look puffy and I saw increased wrinkles. I keep up with my under eye wrinkles I noticed a new tiny one forming. 




Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer 

What it has in it:
2.5% Retinol
Vitamin C
Hyaluronic Acid
Jojoba Oil
Shea Butter
Green Tea

Claims: (off website)
diminishing the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines; reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as sun spots, age spots and dark spots; helping control breakouts and reducing blemishes, restoring firmness and elasticity of skin, evening skin tone & texture; and delivering ultimate moisturize for soft, supple skin.

This is so thick and creamy. It did go on easy but it didn't really sink in all the way. The good thing it didn't feel sticky or heavy. 
The first time I tried this it was at night. My first initial thought was wow my face feels soft. I woke up the next morning with a few spots. I continued to use but applied it in the morning. My face kept getting worse. I know with retinol products you just have to keep using it to see results. I kept up with it and I was not thrilled. I had the worst breakout ever. My face was so bumpy and dull it even looked like my pores were getting larger.  


Final thoughts: I really wanted these products to work. I read tons of reviews and they were all positive. I do have extremely sensitive skin I mean really sensitive. I do want you all to know these were just my results and everyone is different.     

Thank you for reading and until next time!!

  1. The Retinol cream sounded so promising as I am always on the hunt for products with anti aging properties. What a shame that you had such a bad reaction.My skin can be quite sensitive also so I would have to give this a pass. Thanks for your honest thoughts :)

    1. I thought these were going to be amazing! I read tons of reviews and they were all positive. My skin is very sensitive and it is no fun sometimes because I want to try something out but I can't because I know it will upset my skin.

  2. This is one of the few very honest review that I read and thank you for your honesty. I am seeing this brand popping up EVERYWHERE in the blogsphere recently but I'm not so sure if I am completely sold on the glowing reviews that majority gave.
