My skin has been through the mill the poor thing, from dehydration, central heating, sunburn, ageing and sleeping in last nights makeup one too many times after a few cheeky glasses of wine. I always have a breakout of spots with my period and find the thin hot skin under my eyes wrinkle, bags and is always dark from not having slept properly in years. The joys of being a single parent! So the InstaNatural Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer really appealed to me with it’s natural ingredients and repairing and restorative skin properties.
The moisturizer claims to reduce blemishes and breakouts, by removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores a clearer, smoother, more flawless complexion is achievable from home. Vitamin A helps to fight wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation along with Vitamin C and green tea which provide strong antioxidant power against the signs of ageing. With an impressive 2.5% concentration of Retinol, the maximum dose of Vitamin A, the moisturizer is literally packed with antioxidants to deliver optimal results. The handpicked ingredients include organic aloe vera, organic sunflower oil, palm oil, vegan hyaluronic acid, organic jojoba oil and shea butter to renew firmness, elasticity and the thickness of the skin to improve the complexion.
The moisturizer is thick and glossy with a smooth light texture, and just the smallest amount from a single pump goes such a very long way. There is no obvious fragrance or perfume to the cream, making it perfect for use under makeup which can be worn day and night. I start by cleansing my face with warm water to ensure all makeup and product is removed before applying a pump of moisturizer cream to my finger. It glides effortlessly across the skin as I massaged it over my face in a circular motion, instantly transforming my dry and hard areas into soft, fresh and plump skin. The moisturizer takes a few minutes to soak into the skin but doesn’t disappear completely, leaving behind a light, glossy film on the skin allowing makeup to sit perfectly on top without cracking or caking and feeling silky smooth to the touch.
It instantly refreshes the skin and brings life and brightness to my complexion, soothing at night and supportive of my makeup throughout the day. A quality moisturizer will bring the best out of your skin and work with your existing beauty regime, for which the InstaNatural Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer is perfect for me.
