I recieved a 1 ounce bottle of InstaNatural Advanced Formual Vitamin C Serum complimentary through instanatural.com for testing purposes. InstaNatural Vitamin C Serum states that it’s organic without harmful chemicals to provide the user healthy and younger looking skin.
InstaNatural Advanced Formula Vitamin C Serum is a blue colored bottle with a yellowish-orange label. There is a glass dropper top so that you have about the right amount to cover your face and neck. My bottle was 1 oz/30 ml. The serum comes with an expiration date, which my bottle is good for about 14 months. However, I will have used it all before it expires. InstaNatural is made in the states, with no cruelty to animals. Some of the ingredients include Sea Buckthorn which can be used for preventing sunburn, healing skin due to acne, dry skin and a few other skins issues. There is Rosehip which helps with scars, dehydrated aging skin. Argan oil helps with acne and can be used to moisturize the skin. There are two preservatives that I found listed in the ingredients, which assist in keeping the serum from going bad. This product runs around $16.00 plus shipping & handling.
I use the serum in the morning after I wash my face. The soap and hard water always dries my mixed combination skin. I can feel the dryness pulling my skin when it dries, so I applied the vitamin c serum afterwards. I immediately smelled the citrus aroma, smells like a freshly peeled orange. I dropped some serum on to the palm of my hand. I noticed that it was thick and an orange color. I rubbed the serum on both hands and then rubbed my face. Immediately my face was slightly sticky or gummy feeling. I felt a slight tingle around my eyes, that went away after a second or two, along with the sticky feeling. I continued with my normal morning facial routine, applying makeup etc. Instanatural Vitamin C serum is very lightweight, didn’t have any problems applying the rest of my makeup, etc.
My face has a brighter and healthy sheen. I have noticed a lightening of my dark spots around my eyes. The spots are not completely gone, they are a bit faded in color. InstaNatural Vitamin C worked better on my dark spots than the medication provided by my dermatologist and there was no burning sensation on my skin. I had very little wrinkles around my eyes before I used this product. I will say that the wrinkles I do have around my eyes are not as noticeable or pronounced after using this serum. I had no bad reactions while using this product, no redness or acne outbreaks.
I have reviewed other similar products in the past. I can honestly say that InstaNatural Vitamin C Advanced Formula Serum is my favorite. Similar beauty products with alcohol (which dries the skin) and other chemicals have not always lived up to my expectations, especially when it comes to the price. I would say this beauty product is worth every penny.
What I DON’T Like about InstaNatural Advanced Formula Vitamin C Serum:
- Sticky feeling that it has when initially applied to the skin. This sensation does fade after the serum dries.
- It is a bit more than I would want to spend, because of my monthly budget. But it is worth every penny.
What I DO like about InstaNatural Advanced Formula Vitamin C Serum:
- Leaves my face feeling soft and smooth.
- Has a fresh aroma of citrus. For those that do not like a strong orange scent I do not recommend this. The scent does not last long on the skin.
- There is a bright, youthful look to my face.
- My wrinkles, dark spots have faded, but not completely gone.
If you are looking for a natural beauty aide to add to your daily routine, I would suggest trying this product. It’s worth the money and I prefer this over some of the top serum brands that I have tried & used in the past.
