A lot of us are aware of essential oils and the benefits from using them, but I bet like me, a lot of you were not aware of the beauty benefits you can get from using them!
I came across InstaNatural a little while ago when I tried out their amazing Argan oil for hair, nails, and skin. (Read My Review HERE.) I was so pleased with the results from using their Argan Oil, that I couldn’t wait to try out some more products from them.
InstaNatural recently just put out some new skincare products, including a beauty supplement, Phytoceramides, as well as Vitamin C drops, 100% Pure Moroccan Rose Water and 100% pure reship seed oil.
To be honest, when I got these products I wasn’t really sure how to use essential oils in my daily skincare routine, so I was super happy that each bottle comes with directions, and InstaNatural also sends you a follow up email after purchase (you can purchase their products on Amazon) to let you know the benefits of each, and how to use them most effectively.
First off, I started with the 30 day supply of Pyhtoceramides. These beauty supplements contain vitamins A, C, D, and E, which are used to help regenerate the skin. Pytoceramides are antioxidants derived from rice, that help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, as well as age spots. It has also been proven to enhance the complexion and hydrate the skin.
I was really excited to try out these supplements because I’m a firm believer that what we put into our body is just as important if not more important then what we put on our skin, to help with our complexions.
I’ve been taking these pills for just about a month and have loved that they are simple to take. I put them in my pill box to remember to take one each day with the rest of my daily pills. (Just be sure to take it with food).
I tend to have a mix of dry and oily skin, but found while taking these supplements that I experienced absolutely no dryness. My skin has been soft and supple, and feels and looks amazing. I love that these little beauties are packed with antioxidants and vitamins so I know my body is getting what it needs on a daily basis.
If you take regular daily vitamins like I do, this is a great replacement where it has so many of those important vitamins, and at a fraction of the cost of what you will pay to buy each of those vitamins separately.
Next I tried the Vitamin C drops. These drops contain vitamin B3, B5, and vitamin E, in a Ferulic and Hyaluronic Serum you apply to your face and neck after cleansing, while your skin is still a little damp.
The Serum is used to combat stress at multiple levels of the skin. Our skin faces stressors and pollution every day, so I loved the idea of a serum that addresses it at every level. This serum is also great for lightening the skin as well as hydrating it.
I regularly get sun spots and have some old acne scars, and while using this serum, I do feel like my skin has lightened up a bit, especially the scars and sun spots, and my skin looks brighter! The formula is completely gentle and super moisturizing as well.
A little goes a long way too, so you will definitely get your money’s worth with this product. You only need 1-2 drops, and that will be plenty to cover your face and neck and provide your skin with the added benefits and moisture. I used mine day and night for maximum benefits. Just be sure to let it soak on your skin for a few minutes before applying your moisturizer.
I had heard of Vitamin C serums before, but here’s what threw me off, the Rosehip seed oil. Now here is an essential oil I didn’t have the first clue about using for skin.
Rosehip seed oil naturally rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids. I think most of us know how important that is for the skin. Because I’ve recently become vegetarian, I’ve been using Krill oil supplements (in place of fish oil) to get these healthy fats, so I was super excited to find a product I could use on my skin to help my body get those important fats! And especially because it doesn’t hurt fish either!
The healthy fats of this oil help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, uneven pigmentation, and are you ready for this? It will even reduce stretch marks (hope my mom readers are reading this) as well as burn scars AND those nasty dark circles around your eyes.
This oil is super rich and you only need a tiny little bit and it goes a long way. 1-2 drops is plenty to cover your face and neck. Again, this is another product that is very inexpensive compared to your usually beauty products, and will last you at least twice as long!
Don’t like the feel of oil on your skin? You can mix a few drops into your favorite moisturizer and apply it to your skin that way, to get the added benefits from Rosehip Seed oil.
Rosehip seed oil is also great for promoting nail and hair growth too!
I loved using this as a moisturizer. I found I only needed 1 drop for my face and I’d gently massage it into my skin. It was incredibly moisturizing without ever making my skin feel oily or greasy. It is actually a really great moisturizer. I used it both day and night for maximum benefits and loved how my skin felt immediately after using it.
I’ve been using this product for 2 weeks and have been very happy with the results. My skin feels more luminous and soft. I also had a few days of hardly any sleep, and this oil really did work amazingly to hide those dark circles! I don’t think I looked nearly as tired as I would have without using this amazing product!
Lastly but certainly not least, is the 100% Pure Moroccan Rose Water. This water can be used as a cleanser and or a toner. But thats not all. It can ALSO be used as a moisturizer too! This is an all in one facial product if I’ve ever seen one!
You can also use Rose water in the bath, for a nice scented, relaxing soak in the tub, or use it in your hair as a rinse or add it to your shampoo, to make your hair extra soft!
Rose water has also been found to be beneficial to those who suffer with acne too. It also makes a great aftershave, and can help heal and soothe a sunburn as well too! Also works as a great cuticle oil for your nails!
If there was ever an incredibly multitasking beauty product to have on hand at all times, Rose Water is it!
So what exactly does rose water do for the skin? It is great at balancing the PH of the skin (hence, why you can use it as a toner) and it also makes skin smooth, soft, and radiant. It’s a fabulous hydrator and is also great at strengthening the skin. As you can guess from using it to treat a sunburn, it is also very healing for the skin too. Rose Water is also safe for all skin types!
I actually used mine as a toner for the last few weeks. I wasn’t sure it would really cleanse, but when I saw the extra makeup and oil it pulled from my skin while using it as a toner, I was convinced it would make a very effective cleanser too!
While using this product for the last 2 weeks, my skin looks and feels amazing. My acne has improved a bit and my skin has been incredibly moisturized, soft and supple.
I love that while using all of my InstaNatural products, I experienced absolutely no dryness, even though when using only 1-2 drops of each makes it seem like you’re not getting near enough product, it proves you wrong! You see and feel the benefits right away!
I have loved using essential oils in my beauty routine and will certainly continue to use them and am excited to see the continued benefits from using them on a daily basis. I believe natural products are so important and can provide our skin with so many more benefits, that InstaNatural has completely won me over. I’m excited to see what fabulous products this company comes out with in the future, and I absolute adore that these products are so incredibly inexpensive and will last so long, it really makes keeping up a safe, effective, beauty routine completely affordable!
