A few weeks back I was lucky enough to be sent InstaNatural’s new eye serum to try. As a 42 year old mum with all the stresses and strains of normal life, anything that can help me look younger or slow down the aging process is of interest to me! Youth Express Eye Serum c/o InstaNatural*
So what does InstaNatural say about its product?
Wake Up Those Tired, Saggy, Puffy Eyes and Diminish Those Dark Circles with a Daily Dose of our Youth Express Eye Serum. Our Eye Serum contains a supercharged blend of antioxidants and other nourishing ingredients that help restore health & youth to the eye area.
So far so good… They say it reduces appearance of dark circles, puffiness & saggy eyes, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines, hydrates the eye area to prevent premature aging and helps you achieve a more radiant, brighter complexion.
The serum contains a blend of antioxidants and other ingredients including Vitamin C, Plant Stem Cells, Caffeine, Niacinamide (which inhibits hyperpigmentation) and Hyaluronic Acid (which moisturizes the skin to reduce skin problems that occur due to age). It is also organic and cruelty-free.
My first impressions were that it smells lovely – very fresh and grapefruity, feels invigorating to put on and a little goes a very long way. At around £20.00 for a 30ml bottle, you use very small amounts at a time dispensed via a nifty glass pipette.
The next thing I noticed was it was orange, very orange! I neednt of worried though, as the colour disappears fast as you pat it on. The instructions say you can use it morning and night and add make-up over it if required. I found if I added concealer etc., it left a slight residue so I focused on using it nightly as I would any other serum.
So, here are my eyes before – make-up free and in stark light (urrrghhh!!!). I am smiling in the lower picture to show the lines under my eyes –
And after –
There is definitely a difference in the puffiness under my eyes and particularly when I smile. The lower picture looks pretty much the same as the one above it but I was definitely grinning! I don’t have a lot of lines as yet (thank you good genes!) but I think the fine ones I do have, have lessened too. It is important to remember this is only with two or so weeks of use and I will definitely continue to use it and hopefully see even more improvement.
So, would I recommend it? Well on the results I’ve seen so far I would – its definitely making a difference to the look of my undereyes. It feels nice to use and will last ages too so thats another plus. I dont think I’d use it in the mornings myself but as part of my nightime skincare regime InstaNaturals has my vote!
You can buy the serum (plus other products from the Instanaturals range) via Amazon here. Are you a InstaNaturals fan? What products from the range would you recommend?
