Good evening!! So today I will be reviewing InstaNatural’s Vitamin C line. One of the greatest vitamins that I am obsessed with is vitamin C, I love that it is gentle yet effective even for sensitive skin. Most of the products I use contain the vitamin, just because it is an easy way to brighten and repair skin without stress. Once InstaNatural and Brandbacker gave me the opportunity to review this product I was like YUSSS. I was so excited! And I am happy to say I am not disappointed in this line! Friends, InstaNatural is legit, I really recommend this brand, especially for those who have different skin problems and are looking for effective products. I have gone through lots of frustration in past trying some drugstore brands which claimed to have a certain ingredient with several “anti-aging” promises and no results. But after a few weeks of use, I see results with this brand, this is how you know they are using the right ingredients. And I am glad that I got a chance to try their products.
THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMIN C
- Collagen production- As you age, collagen breaks down and wrinkles begin to form. Vitamin C helps in production of collagen which prevents you from having wrinkles.
- The length of time from when you start using vitamin C until you see results varies with each person. While some people see changes as soon as 2-4 weeks, it may take others 6-8 weeks to see a difference. After around 6 months, you’ll reach the maximum benefits.
- Antioxidant protection- shielding skin from damaging free radicals which promote premature aging.
- Once absorbed into the skin, this water-soluble vitamin can also help regenerate vitamin E that has been oxidized. Vitamin E is a potent lipid-soluble antioxidant that is important for preventing oxidative damage .
- Vitamin C limits the damage induced by ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. Vitamin C is not a “sunscreen” because it does not absorb light in the UVA or UVB spectrum. Rather, the antioxidant activity of vitamin C protects against UV-induced damage caused by free radicals.
INSTANATURAL VITAMIN C CREAM MOISTURIZER
InstaNatural’s Vitamin C Moisturizer contains a proprietary blend of supercharged antioxidants and other powerful ingredients that can help you achieve a healthy and glowing complexion. Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant agent, which can help protect your skin from the damaging effects of sun exposure and UV rays. Our moisturizer will deliver a potent 20% dose of Vitamin C to your skin, along with other nourishing ingredients – such as Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Plant Stem Cells – that work together to reduce the appearance of signs of aging, such as wrinkles, age spots, discoloration and dryness.
This is by far one of the best moisturizers I have tried. Its scent is not overpowering and its texture is very syrup-y, like a mix between cream and serum. I love products in this texture because it seals in moisture, the cream is very moisturizing but does not leave a greasy feel to the skin. This product is great for dry skin to combination skin. Its perfect enough for daytime and I don’t end up oily under my makeup (I have oily combination skin). This product really does what it claims because I have been using it religiously for two weeks and yesterday as I was applying my makeup, I noticed that I had become 2 shades lighter. The concealer which I used for a highlighter was now matching my exact skin tone. I was very shocked and amused at the same time. I was not expecting anything drastic but depending on your skin, and your skin routine, results can show as early as 2 weeks. This is going to be a winter staple added to my routine to use as the weather gets cold.

INSTANATURAL VITAMIN C FACIAL TONER
InstaNatural’s Pore Tightening Vitamin C Facial Toner is an all-in-one hydrator infused with anti-aging ingredients to leave your skin feeling refreshed and balanced with each pump of its formula. Vitamin C in the mist helps renew skin by neutralizing free radicals and UV-related damage to protect and strengthen the skin. Witch Hazel’s astringent properties purify oily skin and tighten pores, all while the sulfur works synergistically with other ingredients to increase skin elasticity. With each spray, your face is restored to natural pH levels and is in prime condition to absorb serums and moisturizers effectively.
This spray is amazing. When I first tried it was like hmmm, it dries out matte and hydrates just right but not sure if recommended for dry skin. I love the citrus scent, which makes it feel more refreshing. I planned to use it only during hot summers as a refreshing spray. So after trying it for a few days I was like, this is a nice summer staple. BUT then I got sick last week and whenever I get sick with a cold, my face gets REALLY dry, like my throat, I get extremely dehydrated from trouble swallowing and my skin takes the toll first. So the whole of last week I had to refrain from washing my face with anything drying, and in the middle of the night or randomly during the day I would wake up to my skin being dry and itchy even after my regular routine. During one of the nights last weekend I decided to try this product, and I was impressed that it helped, it became a routine after blowing my nose lol, or when I wake up in the morning. It is also great for winter for a quick refresh, It helped with the dryness and itchiness of my skin. I now keep it on my nightstand for a quick moisture to use at night before bed.

INSTANATURAL AGE-DEFYING SKIN CLEARING SERUM
InstaNatural’s Anti-Aging Skin Clearing Serum is a comprehensive solution for those who want to reverse the signs of aging while treating acne and hyperpigmentation. This potent formula includes many key active ingredients to treat and soothe blemished and irritated skin. Sulfur penetrates the skin deeply for maximum results, allowing retinol and salicylic acid to unclog pores while niacinamide removes redness and inflammation. Simultaneously, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid restore health to damaged skin by repairing sun damage and micro scarring, all while delivering a youthful, radiant glow.
Just like the cream, this serum has a nice sticky-cream colored texture. It is very moisturizing but does not overbear the skin, so this is great for normal to combo skin types. I LOVE that this product contains salicylic acid! It has been helping to keep acne and breakouts at bay, It does not irritate my skin or my eyes!! (even with salicylic acid!!). I believe combining this product with the cream was what may have made me go two shades lighter. My skin has been glowing ever since I started using InstaNatural products, I haven't had any redness or flare-ups/irritation since I started using this product. I plan to make this a staple serum for winter time, and maybe extend into summer and use it only at nights as my skin gets oilier.
