Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System[Review]

I jumped at the chance to review a weight loss product. I was given the opportunity to test the Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System I was so excited. It was just passed Thanksgiving and I thought I would love to shed those extra pounds that I gained eating those extra pumpkin pie slices.



I ordered it from Amazon.com and was happy that it was delivered within 48 hours of my order date. I found two bottles inside the box. No other form of instructions were included.

I started taking the pills on Monday morning. The Slender Cleanse states to take 2 capsules in the morning and 2 capsules in the evening. Something to be aware of, is not to take these capsules longer than 10-15 days. These capsules contain ingredients that will cause an evacuation of the intestines. Most of the ingredients such as Buckthorn, Psyllium, Cascara Sagrada are all gentle laxatives. But with these laxatives you need to be cautious to your body becoming dependent on them. Of course you will lose weight from cleaning out your intestines, but it’s not always a good thing to do. These pills did work, but did not make a difference in my weight.


Make sure you drink plenty of water when using this diet kit.

The Garcinia Cambogia Advanced bottle said to take 2 capsules daily. But there are different instructions on Amazon page. It states to take 2 capsules three times a day and 30 minutes before eating. I tried both different instructions, I noticed that three times a day keeps my cravings away. Taking just two capsules daily isn’t enough for me. If you want to suppress those sweet, sugary or junk food cravings this should work for you. However, if you are looking to lose serious weight this product might be disappointing for you as it is for me.

I weighed myself prior to starting this product. After 8 days of taking this diet kit I haven’t noticed any decreased bloating.  Monday I went to my doctor for a (unrelated) appointment. I was weighed and had gained 4 pounds. Take away 2-3 pounds for clothes & shoes and I still gained one pound. I thought maybe it’s because I had walked an hour a day and maybe added some muscle to my legs. I also measured my waist, hips, bust and thighs to see if there was any difference after I started using this diet kit. Measuring myself again before completing this review and again there was no change in any of my earlier measurements.

What I DID NOT like about Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System:

  • I did not lose any weight.
  • Price. At $36 not worth the cost with high expectations of losing weight.

What I DID  like about Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System:

  • Easy to swallow capsules with no bitter taste
  • Easy to follow directions
  • There is a “No Questions Asked A to Z Money Back Guarantee”
  • No Jittery feeling

Would I recommend this diet kit of Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract PLUS Detox Cleanse System? No. Based on my personal experience. If a good friend wanted to buy this product I would tell them…use it only to suppress cravings and or hunger.  You know, like during the holidays when we tend to eat more than usual. Do not expect major weight lose while using this diet kit.

Do You Want Healthier, Younger Looking Skin? [Product Review]

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

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.
