InstaNatural Haul...Take 2!

Last month I had the privilege of reviewing a few InstaNatural products (check out my review here) so when the opportunity came up to test out some other products I jumped on it. Shipping was a little weird this time, there were some delays I'm suspecting due to the east coast storms so everything came separately at different times. That being said, I was a little limited on time to make the publishing deadline so the first two products I'm going to talk about how a solid month long testing period while the third one was much shorter. That being said I'm reserving harsh judgement on the last product simply because I haven't had the opportunity to test it out as long as the other two.

Here's a little background information on the company itself: 

InstaNatural is a leading online and global distributor of more than a dozen nature inspired beauty and cosmetics products. Our products are one of the top sellers on Amazon and can also be found in leading spas, salons and aesthetic centers in the US, as well as internationally in UAE, UK and Canada (coming soon). We are constantly in search of wonderful natural and organic ingredients from the around the globe, so we can bring you the absolute best products, no matter the cost. In addition, we strongly believe in treating our customers the way we would want to be treated. This is why our lifetime satisfaction guarantee and our customer service is unlike any other company in the industry.
First up is the Dead Sea Mud Facial Mask. This is a holistic detoxifier and purifier that is used to refine skin and bring out its radiance. It is made from pure dead sea mud which is packed with great skin loving minerals such as magnesium, sodium, bromine, potassium and calcium. Once applied this mud mask works to absorb excess oil, dirt and toxins from the skin so it is great for cleaning out pores and treating acne. It helps to restore an even skin tone for a smoother complexion. As a bonus it can also be used on your body to soothe and relieve achy muscles and pains.

This is a very generous 16oz tub that is full to the brim with product! It is virtually scentless which is great because some facial masks have such a strong smell it gets overwhelming as you wear it on your face. It is a very thick product and you need only a thin layer for your face, so this tub could last you for a very long time. Honestly I didn't see much difference using this mask. I've been using it once a week for about a month now (like the directions suggest) and there is no noticeable change from it. One benefit is that it doesn't dry out my skin like a lot of mud masks tend to. I also love that there is a short ingredient list (10!) that are all ingredients I can pronounce and I know what they are.
Next is the Age Defying Retinol Serum. Comparing ingredients and benefits this is actually very similar to the Vitamin C Serum that I reviewed last time which is a good thing because that ended up being one of my favorites and produced great results for my skin! The three power ingredients in this serum is Retinol (protect against free radical damage and reverse the appearance of aging), Vitamin C (repairing damaged skin) and Hyaluronic Acid (traps moisture in your skin).

So far I am actually liking this serum over the other one. It is a much thinner consistency meaning that I can use less to cover my face. It also doesn't have the stickiness that the Vitamin C one had and the citrus is a much lighter scent. So far I am seeing the same benefits as the other serum, which I loved, with the added bonus of being more comfortable to wear.
Finally is the Retinol Moisturizer Cream. This one came the latest out of the bunch so I don't have much to say about it but it is a pretty awesome cream. It works great when used in tandem with the serum because they have similar ingredients and were meant to be used together. It absorbs well in my face and so far has not broken me out. I feel like I'm seeing signs of it boosting the effects of the serum so this is definitely something I will keep using!

So that was my second InstaNatural haul and review! A huge thank you to Brandbacker for making this possible, I'm learning that I'm definitely hooked on their serums!
