Some InstaNatural Goodies...

I get quite a lot of InstaNatural stuff sent to me and although I love the majority of it, I don't really put it on my blog. I thought I'd share this recent batch with you guys to let you know what I think of them. Some of my favourite products I'm using are from InstaNatural and I trust the company & think that the more natural stuff I can use on my skin, the better. I was sent the Dead Sea Mud Mask, the Youth Express Eye Gel and the Skin Clearing Spot Treatment. 

 The first thing I tried was the Youth Express Eye Gel which is priced at £13.99 and quite reasonable in my opinion. This eye gel is meant to help wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles with anti-aging properties. Now, I'm 20 and so I don't really need anti-aging stuff yet. But, as my mum always tells me, you can never start too early caring for your skin & the skin around your eye is especially prone to wrinkling. As well as being an eye gel they also state that you can put this all over your face to make it appear radiant.

Now I've tried this under my eyes and all over my face and I don't know about making me radiant, but I definitely enjoy the product. It has a nice smell which isn't too overpowering and honestly makes my face feel so refreshed. This is the best eye gel I've used in a while and I would really recommend this one. Although it might seem pricey to some, it is definitely worth the price if you suffer from dark circles or dull skin. One complaint I have is the packaging, it's not very elegant. But, I think InstaNatural's main goal is to make skin care for everyone and so packaging like this is great for being unisex and quite masculine so your partner won't be embarrassed to have this on his shelf in the bathroom.

The Dead Sea Mud Mask £21.95 might seem expensive to some people, but for the size of it I see it as reasonably priced. This is a massive tub that will easily last you a while, I've used it 3 times now and barely made a dent in it. This mud mask aims to detoxify your skin and aims to clear blemishes and improve tired skin. They also suggest using it as an all over body mask to improve skin's appearance and to help clear impurities.

The consistency of this mask surprised me because I expected it to be like a clay mask and although it is the same colour of a clay mask, it's quite the opposite in texture. It has a jelly-like consistency and very smooth and easy to put on. I always worry about clay/mud masks as they usually dry my skin out, but this made my skin feel refreshed and smooth rather than stripped of its moisture. It dries similar to a mud mask, with it going hard and flaky. I am actually really happy with this mask and it's great while being easy and quick to use for a midweek facial. 

The Skin Clearing Spot Treatment is £17.95 and way overpriced for what it is, in my opinion. It is essentially an alcohol treatment that smells quite lovely and is designed to dry out spots and help clear them. The suggested use is to put a bit on a cotton swab and dab it on the spot. I've had treatments like this before and I've used alcohol before, they all have a similar effect. For £17.95 this doesn't wow me enough and didn't really clear up any blemishes I had. It simply made the area dry and stung a bit. If you have oily and spot prone skin, this may work better for you, it just didn't do it for me at all.

I really like the products I get sent from InstaNatural and I do think that their hair products are really great. All of their products are made as naturally as possible and actually work. Although some don't work for me, they will work better for other people. You can check out the InstaNatural website here to see what other goodies they have. Have you used InstaNatural before?

Til' next time! XOXO
