So. Here is what I think about Youth Expess Eye Gel from InstaNatural


InstaNatural is one of the skincare products that I have grown to love in the past few months. So whenever I get the chance to try another of their products, I do not hesitate to say "Yes, please!". This time I am trying their Youth Express Eye Gel. And, as they always are kind enough to do, the company sent along a couple of extra products for me to try as well. I also received their Youth Express Eye Serum & Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer.


Since the original product that I am supposed to review is the Youth Express Eye Gel, I'll tell you about that product first. It came in a 1.7 fluid ounce white pump container. It is enriched with Hyaluronic Acid, Plant Stem Cells, Amino Acid Complex, Peptide Complex, Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil & Matrixyl 3000. It is intended to reduce the look of dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles & sagging skin around the eye area, increase elasticity & provide a firm, plump appearance.


The directions say to dab this product gently around the eyes & on the forehead & cheeks. I have other products that I use so I just use this product around my eye area, both under my eyes & on my eyelids. But this gel could be used over your entire face. The gel feels very cooling when I apply it. It doesn't have a scent & it absorbs fairly quickly without feeling sticky. I like the pump container so that I can control the amount of gel that is dispensed so that I don't waste any.


The Youth Express Eye Serum came in a 1 fluid ounce amber dropper bottle. It contains an advanced Peptide Complex along with Plant Stem Cells, Matrixyl 3000, Caffeine, Passionflower, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C & Vitamin E. This serum is intended to restore a youthful appearance to the under eye area by decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles & puffiness.


The directions for the serum say to apply a small amount to your fingertips & gently press under each eye from the inner corner to the outer corner. It is an orange serum & I think it smells like orange juice! I pat it onto my clean face after I use a toner. It also absorbs quickly with no sticky feeling. Once it dries, I apply the Youth Express Eye Gel.


The other product is the Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer. This came in a 3.4 fluid ounce white pump container. Some of the ingredients in this moisturizer are Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Sunflower Oil, Retinol, Organic Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter & Wildcrafted Green Tea. It is designed to transform older, damaged skin into a more healthy & youthful appearance.


This moisturizer can be applied to both your face & neck areas using upward circular motions. The directions say that if you have sensitive skin, this product should be used only at night. My skin is only somewhat sensitive & I've been using it twice a day with no irritation or redness. It is a light silky lotion with a nice subtle scent. It absorbs nicely & can be used under makeup.


If you choose to use a Retinol product during the day, you should always follow with sunscreen as Retinol may make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

I've been using all of these products for about 3 weeks now & my skins looks & feels great! As I said above, I have somewhat sensitive combination skin & have not had any irritation or redness at all after using any of these products.

So. Here is what I think of these skincare products from InstaNatural: I really like InstaNatural products & trust this brand. I like that these products contain so many of the same ingredients so that they work well when used together. I like that the products come in pump containers to that I can control how much of the product is dispensed. I love the way my skin looks & feels!

And I always love products that are cruelty-free and Made in the U.S.A.!

So. Bottom line. If you've never tried the skincare line from InstaNatural, do yourself a favor & try them. They are one of my favorite brands & I think you will love them too!
