Insta Natural Product Review #2

Hi everyone!!
Today I bring more Insta Natural products. Like I said in my other review (here) I have had these products for a while. When it comes to skin care I really like to give it a good test.

Age-Defying Retinol Serum

What it has in it:
2.5 Retinol
20% Vitamin C
10% Hyaluronic Acid
Fruit & Plant Acids

Claims: (off website)
InstaNatural Age-Defying Retinol Serum has an abundance of antioxidants and nutrients that will help your face feel firm, youthful and renewed.

I am getting older and as of lately I have been obsessed with skin care products to keep my skin looking youthful and fresh. I know with retinol you have to give it time to work with your skin. I did give this a few weeks and a good test.
First off this product is really watery and I did kind of get it everywhere. I ended up with product all over my shirt.  However it does go on smoothly and sinks into the skin really fast. It also has a great fresh citrus scent that I love.
When I first applied it to my face it looked amazing. It made every pore look smaller and my face really soft. I woke up the next morning and had huge zits all over my face. I mean huge, huge zits. I kept using it and my face kept breaking out. I have never in my life broken out so bad. Not tiny little bumps that I can just clear up but painful horrible huge pimples. Once I stopped using my face cleared up. I really wanted this to work for my skin but I am sad to say it didn't.

Youth Express Night Cream

What it has in it:
5% Niacinamide
Vitamin C
Matrixyl 3000
Rosehip Oil

Claims: (off website)
InstaNatural’s Youth Express Night Cream offers ultimate hydration to the skin. Niacinamide, a key ingredient in this formula, can help reduce redness and inflammation, as well as diminish the appearance of acne, scars, and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C, another active ingredient, works synergistically to promote skin health by minimizing damage from external factors such as sun exposure. Your skin will be left feeling soft and supple for a radiant, youthful glow.

I have been looking for a good night cream so I was super excited to try this out. This moisturizer is really thick but not sticky or heavy on the skin. This does have ingredients that are supposed to be gentle on the skin which I was happy about since I have sensitive skin. 
I used this for a few weeks and started to notice my face felt like all my pores were clogged. Of course I broke out like crazy. My face did not feel moisturized or soft. It felt dryer after using this product. I stopped using this and my face cleared up. 

Dead Sea Mud Mask

What it has in it:
Pure Dead Sea Mud, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Aloe Vera Juice, Organic Calendula Oil, Hickory Bark Extract

Claims: (off website)
InstaNatural’s Dead Sea Mud Mask is an all-natural detoxifier and purifier that comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea. 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.

Since my face was breaking out so bad from trying out skin care products I was thrilled to try this out. I am a face mask junkie and love to try new ones. 
I put a layer on my face and let it dry thoroughly before I washed it off. I waited a few minutes and my face was burning extremely bad. It turned red and hurt. I also got little bumps. The thing that really irks me about this is the consistency. I don't know what it is but I don't like it. Its kind of jelly like. For some reason I just don't like it. 

I didn't want this stuff to go to waste so I told my husband to use them. Well he also had a bad experience. His face was red and swollen. He told me it hurt and I felt so bad for him.
I also want y'all to know that I used these products together and separate. I also let my breakouts clear up before I tried each product. I am highly disappointed that these did not work for me. They have great ingredients and have nothing but outstanding reviews. Like I said before just because they did not work for me does not mean they will not work for you. Everyones skin is different.

Thank you for reading and until next time!


  1. When I see non stop outstanding reviews on certain brand/products, I will start to wonder how true it is, especially when it's samples from company. Again, thank you for your honest review, will have to keep in mind that there's a possibility for breakouts.

    1. All the products I tried really hurt my face. It took some time to clear it up and get it back to where it was before I tried them out.
