Bullseye Silicone Dildo [Review]

I have been given the opportunity to review the Pleasure Works Bullseye Silicone Dildo from Good Vibrations. The box itself reminds me of a quart of milk, perhaps a bit wider. The outside of the box gives pretty good product details, even states that the box is recyclable. The box is sealed with tape and the dildo is inside a plastic bag.

Dildos have not been my favorite sex toy to use, however the Bullseye has changed my mind.  I was briefly disappointed when I looked at the box. The quote “never judge a book by its cover” popped into my mind. Be open-minded, I thought. You’re doing this for testing purposes, to share your opinion & experience of this product.

Bullseye Dildo

Looking at the dildo, it’s a pearlized white with subtle lines that encompass the dildo. I have one other dildo. The first thing I noticed about that dildo was the awful smell it had. The Bullseye dildo does not have that smell.  The very first thing I did before I even started to handle the dildo was to wash it with some soap & hot water. A huge plus in my book is that it’s waterproof. This makes for easy cleaning, easy care. However, since it is 100% silicone it also can collect dirt & dust easily. I dropped it on the hardwood floor when hitting it against the table, when I picked it up it had dog hair, my hair and debris from the floor stuck to it. I just rinsed it off with warm water. It air-dried on the countertop afterwards. The base is flat which allows it to stand. I would suggest keeping the box or keep it covered when not in use. I suggest a more thorough cleaning prior to using it during any sexual activity.

I decided to use some lube with the Bullseye, because I was a bit intimidated by the head of the dildo. The dildo has a flat rounded base, slightly curved with a bulbous head.  The Bullseye measures at approximately 6 inches with approximately 5 1/2 of insertable inches. The head measure approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter and the shaft is approximately 1.25 inches. The base is approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

When I first used the Bullseye, it did take some getting used to. I have a very small pelvis, sex toys that look big to some look enormous to me. I felt the fullness of the bulbous head, the thickness of the shaft. And I loved it every minute of it. Waves of pleasure were received by the Bullseye dildo while I used it. When my spouse used it on me it seemed too long, hitting my cervix causing me to move in discomfort. The Bullseye dildo is very flexible and bendable. It can be bent so that the tip touches the side of the base. That’s how flexible this dildo is.

Bullseye Dildo

 

What I DID NOT like about the Bullseye Dildo:

  • At times it become uncomfortable to hold by hand while in use.
  • Difficult to keep clean, collects debris, dust, hair. But very easily washed and cleaned.

Bullseye Dildo

What I DID like about the Bullseye Dildo:

  • The pearlized white color with a subtle design throughout the dildo.
  • 100% silicone. There is no foul, rubbery or plastic odor to this product.
  • Waterproof. Easy to clean, but difficult to keep clean when not in use.
  • Can be used by male or female.
  • Can be used with or without a harness.
  • Can be used for both vaginal and anal pleasure (g-spot and prostate).
  • Made in the USA.
  • It’s curved and very flexible, bendable.

I really enjoyed the Pleasure Works Bullseye Dildo. I no longer look at this dildo with disappointment. Now, what I really want is to get a harness to use with it. I’d like to test it with a harness, along with using it on a man for their opinion. I wonder how intimidating, if at all it would be to a man who is doesn’t get pegged often. 

Read about my pegging fantasy here.

Would I recommend the Pleasure Works Bullseye Dildo to my friends? Yes. Yes I would. Why? Because it’s a toy I would call “universal.” It can be used by & for either gender. A woman can use it on her lover; man or woman, hand-held or harness. A man can use it on his lover; man or woman. And it can be easily added into a couple’s lovemaking or sex scene. It’s a good dildo to own.

Butterfly Bliss Waterproof Vibrator [Sex Toy Product Review]

I was excited to receive the Butterfly Bliss Vibrator from Good Vibrations. Anything that vibrates excites me, the anticipation of future orgasms fill my mind. The packing is simple and the vibrator itself is wrapped inside a clear plastic bag, taped shut. 

Butterfly Bliss Vibrator

My Butterfly Bliss Vibrator is a matte teal color, it’s also available in pink. The vibrator is about 7.25 inches long with 1.25 at the widest part. There is 3 insertable inches of the vibrator with a bulb-like head. The outside of the box does state the insertable tip is 2 3/4 x 1 1/8″.  The bottom unscrews for the 2 AAA batteries which are not included. The control/power button is located at the very bottom of the vibrator. The 3 inches insertable inches of the vibrator is flexible. The Butterfly wings & antenna are also very flexible.

What I DID NOT like about the Butterfly Bliss Vibe:

  • It’s operated by 2 AAA batteries.
  • The battery life (even with brand new batteries) is not long. I have already used three sets of batteries. One set of brand new batteries I used in one day after using it for about 2 1/2 hours.
  • Price. It is a bit more than I am willing to pay for a product like this one. At GoodVibes.com it’s $29.00. Prices do vary depending on what site you are looking at. 
  • Is that the butterfly area must be cleaned very well. Otherwise fluids dry collecting more debris. Make sure to move around the butterfly wings, inspect the lines of the body of the butterfly. Even when I thought the area was clean, I noticed debris had collected, mostly by the wings. 
  • The vibrator can get warm while using it for a while. 
  • The intensity of the vibrator can be hard on those who have health issues with hands, wrists and fingers.

What I DID like about the Butterfly Bliss Vibe:

  • Waterproof
  • Dual power/control button. Simple to use. If you only use the low setting you have to pass the higher two settings to reach the off option.
  • G-spot stimulation while also stimulating clitoris. The intense vibration can be felt in the bulbous head along with the butterfly area.
  • Silicone. There is no bad odor to this product (like I have experienced in the past). It is silicone so it does pick up debris.

Conclusion

The Butterfly Bliss Waterproof Vibrator is a nice little novelty. Not a vibrator I would recommend to my friends. Why? Because I’ve been spoiled with USB chargeable vibrators. Don’t get me wrong, some battery-operated vibrators work great. I just don’t like that this one seems to suck the battery juice down in a short amount of time. 

When I used this the last time I kept thinking “How many hours I have used this? I’m gonna be pissed off if the batteries start to weaken and I’m on the verge of my orgasm!” 

There is also something about the way it “fits” or “doesn’t fit.” “One size” does not fit all. The good thing about the Butterfly Bliss vibrator is that is very bendable. Once inserted the Butterfly Bliss can be slightly angled so that the butterfly’s antenna & wings can surround the clit, if it can (comfortably) reach your clit. Really take time to know your body, because in my opinion this vibrator will not fit every women in the way it is intended to.

InstaNatural Advanced Repair Scar Gel [Product Review]

I had surgery on my foot in May 2015. I have searched for a scar treatment for the incisions that were left. I had tried a few different scar treatments and have not had a lot of success. Scar Gel by InstaNatural

I even spoke with my dermatologist and my surgeon for some recommendations for scar treatment. They both stated that I have what is known as a Hypertrophic scar. They also suggested a product or two, but again not a lot of success. 

I was given a chance to review Advanced Repair Scar Gel by InstaNatural. In exchange for my honest opinion of the product after I finished using it.

I have used Advanced Repair Scar Gel for a few weeks now. In my honest opinion I have not noticed any major differences in my scar. My primary doctor told me that scars can take up to a year to completely heal. “When the scar turns completely white then it’s finished healing.” I remember her saying that during my physical. 

What I DID like about InstaNatural Advanced Repair Scar Gel

  • All Natural
  • Made in the USA

What I DID NOT like about InstaNatural Advanced Repair Scar Gel

  • There is a woody, autumn leaves type of aroma.
  • There is stiff feeling left on the skin after application.
  • Price. At almost $30 for 1 ounce

I would not recommend this to my friends or family based on my personal experience. I think that using this product, massaging it into the skin is what might help with the healing of the scar. That’s about it, massaging the skin being key. After I used Advanced Repair Scar Gel I felt the tightness in my skin and sometimes it was uncomfortable at times. Once the gel dried completely there was no stiff feeling left. There is slight aroma left behind after application. Sadly, this product did not work for me as well as I would have liked.

Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash [Review]

I received the purple Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash. I use it both in the morning & in the evening after I brush my tooth. In the evening I floss before using Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash. I noticed the typical sting of the mouthwash, but I have felt a stronger sting with similar products. The longer I swished it around in my mouth the more intense the sting/burn became.  The aroma of the Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash was pleasant, it’s a winterfresh mint kind of smell. I must have a cavity starting because once the mouthwash hit that area it hit a nerve. The bottle states to wait for food or drinks for 30 minutes, but by that time there is an unwanted taste in my mouth. My mouth felt clean, but that aftertaste was a bit much for me. I kept rubbing my tongue along my teeth because my teeth almost felt kind sticky, a film or protective coating.

Swishing Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash

My spouse uses mouthwash more often than I do, at work mostly. This was a welcome change to the other brands that he normally uses. He liked this product just as well, if not better than the brands. The plus side of Crest Pro-Health Mouthwash is that it is alcohol-free. There is no hard alcohol smell when you open the bottle. I noticed that there is a safety cap on the bottle, it must be gripped at the marks on the sides to twist off. This is good for those that have little ones who might be curious about the bright purple liquid in the bottle.

This mouthwash is an addition to the daily dental hygiene and the assistance of preventing activities in addition to regular dental exams.

What I Didn’t like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:

  • The stinging sensation the longer it stays in your mouth
  • There is after taste that is left in your mouth.
  • Recommended a wait of 30 minutes before having any food or drink.

What I Do like about Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash:

  • There is no strong alcohol smell or taste. It’s 100% alcohol free
  • Safety (twist) cap
  • It does give a clean fresh feel to the teeth.
  • The price is reasonable at $6

Crest Pro-Heath Advanced Mouthwash

I would recommend this to family & friends. There is a certain amount of burning or stinging when using any mouthwash or oral rinse. However, Crest  Pro-Health Advanced doesn’t have a strong burning sensation compared to other mouthwashes I have used in the past.

Leather Conditioner & Restorer [Product Review]

I own lots of leather items, such as boots, purses, clothing items, furniture. Even the seats in my car are leather. I LOVE leather! I treat them every season with leather cleaner, etc. My shoes I clean more often.  This time I tried something new that was provided to me complimentary by Leather Nova. It’s called Leather Conditioner & Restorer

Leather Conditioner & Restorer

Leather Conditioner & Restorer is a non-toxic leather protector. This product can be used on just about any leather or vinyl item except suede. 

I first used Leather Conditioner on my car seat. I noticed that where ever the leather is cracked or damaged that when the conditioner is applied it will become dark. 

Leather Nova and Car Leather

The above photo doesn’t truly show the difference in the condition of the leather. There is a bit of a darker tint to the leather, which the Leather Conditioner does do on any thing you use it on. I left the single coat on for over an hour, came out to the car and the seat was still a bit oily, sleek feeling. I wiped it down again with a towel, it was still slick. There was a shiny look to the leather. I didn’t notice a new leathery smell at all, which is ok with me. It would be a plus, but really not necessary.

Next I used Leather Conditioner on my leather biker jacket. My jacket was soft, smooth and supple, not to mention shiny. 

Leather Conditioner & Restorer

I thought if this Leather Conditioner works so well on my jacket, which I wear every year. I wonder what it will do to leather that is dry, hard and stiff. I went to the back of the closet to get my hubby’s father’s old Harley Davidson biker jacket. His dad (now deceased) bought it brand new in 1962. It worked perfectly!! Softened up the leather right, after about 20 minutes. I applied only one coat on one side of the jacket, because I wanted my hubby to guess what I did to the jacket. He noticed after a few squeezes to the sides of the jacket. He said “this side is hard & dry, this side is soft and shiny.” I noticed that the Leather Conditioner did not cover the faded leather spots like it on the car seat. The back of the bottle does say the “old & dry leather” may need two coats. 

I did drop a few drops of water on the leather to see what would happen. The water beaded up and rolled. The photo below (with the water drops) is immediately after application. Since the Leather Conditioner is made with polymers, “it’s like silicone” my hubby said. I said “then the water shouldn’t stain or ruin the leather.” He replied “it shouldn’t.” I also noticed that fingertips were very soft after handling the jacket.

Next we dug hubby’s favorite cowboy boots out of the closet. After a good clean dusting & cleaning he was ready to use the Leather Conditioner. The brown boots are over 20 years old and were a bit stiff, but after using the conditioner the boots softened right up. He was really impressed. In an hour he wiped them both and they were restored back to a soft, supple leather. 

Cowboy Leather

What I DON’T Like about Leather Conditioner by Leather Nova:

  • On the back of the bottle it states it is 100% Non-Toxic. However, there is no list of ingredients on this bottle. There is a website, email address and 800 number for Leather Nova. I suppose that if an emergency came up that the authorities could use that contact information. On the back of the bottle it states “check the manufacture’s labels for any additional warnings…” Where? I did check the website. I couldn’t find any warning instructions. 
  • It does have an oily sheen on stuff. It was on my fingers and is now on my keyboard. Not a lot but enough for me to know that its there. Be careful where you are using this product because it will get on anything & everything it touches if you’re not careful with it or while using it.

What I DO Like about Leather Conditioner by Leather Nova:

  • It works beautifully restoring old dry leather back to a smooth, supple leather. Adds weather protection from rain and snow.
  • There is no strong smell. I couldn’t smell anything at all, even after applying it to my leather goods.
  • It’s made in the USA.
  • It can be used on almost “anything that has a skin on it” as my hubby put it. From the basic leather items such as car seats, purses, boots, heels, jackets to all that stuff that is made of such things as snakes, shark, ostrich and crocodiles just to name a few.
  • It came with a foam applicator. 
  • A long amount goes a long way. So, getting an 8 ounce bottle should cover lots of leather goods. 

My hubby & I were very impressed with this product. I would recommend this to anyone who has lots of leather items that need attention and conditioning. It’s worth the price of $15.97 for the 8 ounce bottle.

Zenwise Labs [Product Reviews]

Recently I have received four different supplements from Zenwise Labs. Each product below was provided complimentary for my testing purposes to provide my honest opinion of each product.

100% Natural Sleep Support – Extra Strength Nighttime Sleep Aid Supplement.

I read over the directions, took 2 capsules about 90 minutes before I wanted to fall asleep. I have always had difficulty falling asleep. I’ve tried Ambien and Ambien CR in the past. I did not like the “hungover” feeling I had in the morning. I even used just regular OTC pain relievers to help me get to sleep. I have also tried other non-habit forming sleep aides to get me to sleep, but just didn’t like that feeling of walking in a fog. 

About 45 minutes after taking the Sleep Support capsules I felt relaxed. The thoughts in my head seemed quiet. I was yawning and feeling a bit sleepy. A hint of drowsiness, but not too uncomfortable that I wouldn’t have my wits about me.  

Looking up the ingredients I noticed there are two (5-HTP & GABA) that are also used in treating ADHD and high pressure, which I have both of those. I have used 5-HTP (in the past) when my Adderall wears off, it helps me relax and keeps me focused just enough to get ready for bed & sleep.

During the night that I had taken the Sleep Support, I had a feeling that I was awake, tossing & turning. Dreaming that I had drank Kava, which I have in the past. I was privileged to experience a Kava ceremony from some acquaintances from Fiji. Both gave me the same feeling of sleepwalking, lucid dreaming and relaxation. The main difference is that I now suffer from Benign positional vertigo. I’m not 100% sure that my vertigo episode was brought on by taking this Sleep Support Supplement. I do know that I haven’t had a vertigo episode in months and about two hours later my vertigo started when I turned my head. When I woke up I didn’t have too much of a foggy feeling. I still have a relaxed, almost emotionally numb feeling. Normally I wake up hyper, loud and ready to go. The numb feeling didn’t last too long, but an hour after I woke up. I was completely fine after that for the rest of the day. I waited one night not to test one capsule versus the two. 

What I DON’T Like about 100% Natural Sleep Support – Extra Strength Nighttime Sleep Aid Supplement:

  • Had strange, foggy type dreams. 
  • Didn’t sleep through the night.
  • Felt like I was sleepwalking when I got up during the middle of the night (not in the morning)
  • Had a dizzy and vertigo episode. (see above)

What I DO like about 100% Natural Sleep Support – Extra Strength Nighttime Sleep Aid Supplement:

  • Give me a relaxed, sleepy feeling, enough to fell asleep
  • 100% natural
  • Non-habit forming
  • NO “hangover” or “in a fog” feeling in the morning (IF you allow enough time for it to work out of your system)
  • Made in the USA

My spouse also took these Sleep Support Supplements, he had no issues of dizziness nor did he wake up during the night. He told me the next morning that he slept “ok.” That he really didn’t notice a difference. I tried one capsule, instead of the recommended two capsules the following night. I took it around 9pm, probably a little too late on my schedule. My alarm goes off at 5am. I had difficulty getting up and moving. I had that foggy, autopilot feeling. I went to work and about 3 hours after I woke up, I was finally feeling “normal.” If someone needs something to get them relaxed enough to fall asleep I would recommend this, because it does work well for that. If you don’t like that foggy feeling in the morning,  make sure you allow yourself enough time for it to work its way out of your system. 

 

Joint Support Supplement – With 1500mg Glucosamine, 1200mg Chondroitin, MSM & Hyaluronic Acid for Advanced Relief

I have been taking these Joint Support tablets for about a month now and there is really honestly no difference that I have been able to notice. I have arthritis in my knees, one knee is missing the PCL due to a motorcycle accident. I also have arthritis in other joints, but the knees are the ones that bother me the most.

Joint Support Supplement - With 1500mg Glucosamine, 1200mg Chondroitin, MSM & Hyaluronic Acid for Advanced Relief

The season is changing from summer to fall and that means that temperatures are dropping. It’s starting to get damp, rainy in the morning when I head out to work. One day it’s in the 80’s and the next day it’s back to cold & rainy. This type of weather is especially hard on my joints.

I think I have tried this product long enough that it should be in my system to give it an honest opinion. And again I have noticed no significant difference. I just know that lately I have had to wrap my knees up due to the dull ache.

There are 180 tablets in a bottle that is $18.95. Is it worth it? Not sure. Taking 3 of those horse pills, not noticing a difference. For me, it’s a pass. I’ve heard really good things about the main ingredients in this Joint Support. However, just not feeling any different.

What I DON’T Like about: Joint Support Supplement – With 1500mg Glucosamine, 1200mg Chondroitin, MSM & Hyaluronic Acid for Advanced Relief

  • I didn’t notice any difference in my joints. I still had to wrap my knees up.
  • The tablets are very large.
  • Need to take 3 tablets a day

What I DO like about: Joint Support Supplement – With 1500mg Glucosamine, 1200mg Chondroitin, MSM & Hyaluronic Acid for Advanced Relief

  • The product is made in the USA
  • Made with all natural ingredients.
  • No Wheat, Egg, Milk or Peanut.
  • Gluten free.

I would suggest taking them all at night, so the body can absorb it all. Besides taking them in the morning (like I did) on an empty stomach is not the most comfortable feeling. Would I recommend Joint Support? Probably, because it’s natural and cheaper than some of the similar products at the local big box stores. 

Ashwagandha – All-Natural Root Extract Supplement

Ashwagandha

I have been taking Ashwagandha for a while weeks now. I have never heard of this supplement before, so I did some research on it before I took it. Ashwagandha is a root, herb from India, Middle East and Northern Africa. Translated Ashwagandha means “smell of a horse” and traditionally believed that taking it gives the virility of a horse. One of the benefits of taking this supplement is sexual potency for both men and women. 

This supplement is taken to relief a number of aliments. From assisting in stress-related ulcers, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, memory loss, and other stress-induced illnesses. It states that this supplement can also provide a calming effect that can be compared to some anti-anxiety & anti-depressant medications. Maybe be used to ease sooth the nervous system from pain. 

What I did not like about: Ashwagandha – All-Natural Root Extract Supplement

  • There is not enough documented studies about this supplement.
  • I have read different articles with different benefits listed.

What I did like about: Ashwagandha – All-Natural Root Extract Supplement

  • Made in the USA
  • Natural ingredients
  • Pretty easy to swallow
  • Meets a few of my needs in just one little capsule. (stress deduction, supports immune & cardiovascular system).
  • Price. At $6 a bottle for 120 capsules it’s worth trying. Adding it for that a little extra during the dark winter months.

I would not recommend taking this supplement for a long time due to the lack of scientific studies supporting the marked improvement to one’s health after taking this daily supplement. I can say that I have felt a bit better, mentally since I began taking this supplement. There is however a question of a time when I drank some alcohol and had an issue with bladder control. I am now curious after reading more about this supplement if taking it in addition to my blood pressure medication with a diuretic and the alcohol resulted in my body’s violent reaction. There is no way of knowing for sure due to lack of research about Ashwagandha. I would be very careful taking this supplement in addition to medication prescribed by your physician. 

 

Resveratrol – 1250 MG Extra Strength Supplements

Resveratrol

I would rather eat red grapes. Resveratrol is found in the skin of red grapes and red wine. I don’t like wine, so grapes it is. Taking this 2 capsule daily supplement may help to reduce heart disease in addition to a few other illnesses. Once again I had to research this supplement because I had no previous knowledge of it. There are a few good articles about Resveratrol. However in the articles I read there was mention of no clinical studies on humans with either positive or negative results for taking the supplement known as Resveratrol.

This Zenwise product also contains Bioperine, an extract found in black pepper. It assists to absorb nutrients into the intestine. It is said to have an antidepressant effect and assists with the immune system. However, there is a concern of too much bioperine and the interaction with other medication can be dangerous. There is 7 milligrams in Zenwise’s Resveratrol Supplement. A blend of extracts are green tea, grape seed, pterostilbene (found in blueberries, also an antioxidant) and curcumin (a ginger relative, it can help to fight against malignant diseases and chronic illness). 

What I DID NOT like about: Resveratrol – 1250 MG Extra Strength Supplements

  • There are not a lot of clinical studies proving the benefit of this supplement. 
  • Upon opening the bottle, there is a hint of cigarettes or tobacco from the extracts used to make the capsules. 
  • Having to take 2 capsules daily
  • At $18 for 60 capsules I have to say it’s not worth buying. Maybe when there is enough medical information that proves taking a Resveratrol Supplement is beneficial to one’s health.

What I DID  like about: Resveratrol – 1250 MG Extra Strength Supplements

  • Made in the USA
  • Made by a company that I am now familiar with. 
  • Natural ingredients.
  • The label states that the statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. 

Resveratrol

I would have to recommend that this supplement be taken with caution, due to the lack of clinical studies on its positive & negative effects on the human body. I have not noticed a difference one way or another. I am taking blood pressure medication again after being off for a few months. My “good” cholesterol was down a number or two, not a major concern yet. I suppose this Resveratrol Supplement might help me a little. Perhaps in a month of two I will know if this helped when I go for my blood work. I think I will consider adding more red grapes to my diet.

InstaNatural’s Professional Formula Hyaluronic Acid Serum [Product Review]

I received InstaNatural’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum complimentary for testing purposes from InstaNatural.com. A natural anti-aging serum Hyaluronic Acid Serum is used for damaged skin, wrinkles and fine lines, sun spots and dehydrated skin.

InstaNatural's Professional Formula Hyaluronic Acid Serum

InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a blue colored bottle with a blue-green label. There is a glass dropper top so that you have about the right amount to cover your face and neck. My bottle was 2 oz/60 ml. The serum comes with an expiration date, which my bottle is good for about 9 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 Vegan Hyaluronic Acid which is already in the body to keep the skin youthful looking. Vegan Hyaluronic Acid is a non-animal by-product. Vitamins C & E help with damaged skin such as sun spots, some age-related wrinkles. Green Tea can help with ridding dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. It can also tone and moisturize the skin. Organic Jojoba Oil works with rehydrating the skin. All of these ingredients work together to give healthy, youthful and tight skin. There are no harmful ingredients in this product. However, the bottle does state that if you get some redness on your face to stop using. This product runs around $15.00 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 Hyaluronic Acid serum afterwards. There is a hint of a medicated aroma, a clean medication aroma, which I think is from the witch hazel.  I dropped some serum on to the palm of my hand. The serum is clear, not too thick and the scent is not noticeable when applying to my face. I rubbed the serum on both hands and then rubbed my face. Immediately my face was kind of sticky, the serum feels like it starts to dry instantly upon application to the skin. Once the serum is completely rubbed into the skin, there is  smooth, soft and hydrated feeling to my face and neck. I continued with my normal morning facial routine, applying makeup etc. Instanatural  Hyaluronic Acid serum is very lightweight, didn’t have any problems applying the rest of my makeup, etc. It works wonderfully rehydrating my face & neck after washing with soap and water.

I have reviewed other similar products in the past. I can honestly say that InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum is not my favorite anti-aging product.  InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum is my second favorite anti-aging beauty product. 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 Hyaluronic Acid Serum:

  • It is a bit more than I would want to spend, because of my monthly budget. However, it is worth the money. The bottle is 2 ounces and does last a while. That is a plus. It really cancels out the first statement in my book, but I do know that some people are on monthly budget, like myself.

What I DO like about InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum:

  • It is basically odorless, just a hint of a medication type aroma.
  • It’s a clear, thin serum.
  • There is no heavy residue after application. Easy to continue with your normal morning and evening facial beauty routine.
  • Leaves the skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated.
  • Skin looks brighter, sun spots and dark circles are faded (but not 100% 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.
