Fighting Blemishes and Aging at the Same Time

Teens aren’t the only ones who get acne and blemishes. Anyone can succumb to clogged pores, blackheads, and pimples. It’s not fun to be trying to fight wrinkles with anti-aging creams, but at the same time trying to get rid of a hideous little bump starting to grow on your face.  I recently found out that it is possible to get clear skin, try to combat wrinkles,  and get a youthful glow.

InstaNatural Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum

I love a serum for a clearer complexion that is intended for those also looking for anti-aging ingredients. Finally, there is one product to fight blemishes and fine lines. Through a promotion, I got a bottle of InstaNatural Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum. It has some powerful ingredients: vitamin C 20% with Retinol 2.5%, salicylic acid 2%, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, tea tree oil, and MSM. The serum addresses the following issues:
- Wrinkles & fine lines
- Blemishes & irritated skin
- Dry, dehydrated skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Hyperpigmentation
- Rough texture
- Dull complexion

At first, my skin felt a little tingly, but it was not unbearable. That feeling quickly went away, as my skin got used to the ingredients. Those with sensitive skin should be careful and just use a little to see how their skin reacts.  My skin is clearer, brighter, and tighter. I love the firmness that my skin feels after using it. This keeps my skin clear and the bumps that tend to collect on my nose away. The serum is not overly drying, as I would expect with salicylic acid.

Before using the serum, I applied InstaNatural Rose Water toner. The rosewater is gentle and leaves my skin refreshed. It tones my skin without harsh astringents that leave my skin dry.  Rosewater has natural calming and soothing properties. It is supposed to be good for helping sunburn and skin irritation.

InstaNatural Rose Water is made out of 100% Moroccan Rose Water. This toner can be used on the face and hair. It doesn’t contain any preservatives or artificial fragrances.

InstaNatural Stretch Mark and Scar Cream Review

Stretch marks and scars plague many people. Some people wear stretch marks like a badge of honor, while most people are self-conscious of them, preferring to keep them covered with clothing. I’ve tried several oils and creams promising to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks and haven’t seen much in the way of results. I’ve been using InstaNatural Stretch Mark and Scar Cream and was both curious and hopeful about the potential results.

I’ve been skeptical that creams or oils can make scars or stretch marks disappear. I think some may help decrease their appearance. Using cream or oil may particularly help fresh scars or scars that are more toward the upper layer of skin, rather than ones that go to deeper layers. Pregnant women may find it helps to rub the cream on their growing belly to make their skin suppler to prevent stretch marks.

About InstaNatural Stretch Mark and Scar Cream

InstaNatural Stretch Mark and Scar Cream is supposed to diminish the appearance of scar and stretch marks. It is also supposed to prevent new ones from forming. It is made of 25% natural oils. The cream delivers nourishment and hydration to skin to improve elasticity.

This does seem to be a quality product with some great ingredients, like vitamin C, cocoa butter, rosehip oil, mango butter, grape seed oil, evening primrose oil. I’m in love with the scent, and have found that it moisturizes quite well. It is greasy feeling at first, but it does absorb well and the greasy feeling does not linger long.

To use the cream: apply it to clean, dry skin and massage the cream in a circular motion. Apply it to targeted areas with stretch marks or scars or to areas that are prone to developing stretch marks. Massaging the area can increase circulation and using the cream can increase skin’s moisture and elasticity. For better results, exfoliate skin two to three times per week to help shed the old skin cells.

I’ve been using the cream for about four weeks. It is recommended by InstaNatural to use the product twice a day, consistently. I’ll admit that I have not necessarily applied it twice each day. As far as its performance for reducing the appearance of scars or stretch marks, I haven’t made any conclusions.  My skin is softer and smoother. The company does advise that it may take two months of regular use to see results. I’ll keep using the product and see what happens. It is important to note that regular and continued use of the product is recommended.

Adovia Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream Review

I’ll admit that I’m a sucker for a great face cream. One of my new favs is Adovia Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream. This facial moisturizer is rich and creamy. The best part, aside from the classy-looking glass jar and luxurious feel, is the fact that this cream provides excellent hydration and makes my skin feel firmer.

The cream is supposed to prevent the formation of new wrinkles and fine lines, as well as reduce existing wrinkles. It contains almond oil, Dead Sea minerals, seaweed, aloe vera, vitamin A, silicon, and other ingredients.

After using the cream for about a month, here is what I found:
  • Not oily or greasy
  • Absorbs quickly
  • Makes my skin feel firmer and smoother right away
  •  I saw less pronounced lines across my forehead.
 I’ve used it both in the morning and at night. I like it best as a night cream. I wake up with firmer, smoother skin that looks fresh and ready to start the day. When used in the morning I find that it’s thicker consistency makes it harder to blend my foundation in. After using the cream, primer, foundation, and concealer, there is a heavy feeling on my face and the makeup under my eyes gets clumpy. The Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream is great for days that I don’t wear makeup, but I do really like it for using just before bed.

InstaNatural Vitamin C Toner Spray Review

I love facial mists and sprays because they are so refreshing. I recently became hooked on InstaNatural Vitamin C Toner Spray. I’ve reviewed other InstaNatural products, and I’ve been impressed with all of their products that I have used. InstaNatural uses quality ingredients and has excellent customer service.


The Vitamin C Facial Toner Spray renews, hydrates, and restores. It contains witch hazel as an astringent with vitamin C to tighten pores and refresh skin.  It also has aloe vera, MSM, along with other ingredients. It is supposed to penetrate pores and help skin better absorb serums and moisturizers. The toner comes in a bottle, which sprays a light mist.  It has a refreshing grapefruit-like scent.

I absolutely love the spray bottle that it comes in. It feels refreshing, and after using it my skin feels great. It has been a boost to my complexion and kept the oiliness away. The toner seems to be gentle and non-drying. I spray it three or four times, and it drys quickly. I like using it to tone my face after washing, and sometimes I  also like to use it after applying my make up for a more natural looking, dewy appearance.
