Based in the sun-drenched state of Florida InstaNatural is a skincare company that utilises potent natural ingredients to bring their customers a range of effective products, which don’t cost the earth or sacrifice health in the pursuit of beauty.
I discovered InstaNatural a few months ago when I reviewed their Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum and I immediately loved not only the product but also the company ethos which focuses on premium organic and natural ingredients and shuns the use of harmful alcohols, parabens and sulfates. Therefore I’m very pleased to be featuring two bodycreams from this brand, both of which target particular troublesome skin concerns.
The first of these products is the InstaNatural Cellulite Cream (RRP £49.95)*. This skin firming cream is targeted at those wishing to tighten, tone and improve the skin on their thighs, buttocks, arms and stomach. A potent blend of Retinol, Caffeine and Vitamin C helps visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite and dimples, whilst organic Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil and organic Jojoba Oil add moisture and hydration to increase elasticity and achieve softer and smoother skin tone. Along with antioxidant rich Green Tea, Vitamin E and Vitamin C work this supercharged cream also promises to deliver healthier, more youthful skin.
This cream has quite a thick texture and upon first glance appears a little gritty in consistancy. Once rubbed into the skin however it quickly melts and a little goes a long way. The formula isn’t too sticky or greasy so you can dress soon after application and it leaves the skin very soft. I didn’t really see a big improvement in my cellulite but the general skintone and hydration of my thighs was improved. I also love the impressive list of natural, botanical ingredients. One major downside however is the strong, masculine scent which I have to say lingers for a while and won’t be to everyone’s liking. If you can overlook the scent however it’s a very nourishing and pleasant product to use.
The second of the two products is the InstaNatural Stretch Mark Cream (RRP £49.95)*. This is a very nourishing and rich cream that promises to prevent and reduce scars and stretchmarks. Once again the formula is fortified with wonderful natural incredients and includes Vitamin C (15%), Cocoa Butter, Rosehip Oil, Mango Butter, Grapeseed Oil, and Evening Primrose Oil.
Although the texture is rich and quite greasy it is absorbed fairly quickly and, used sparingly, just a little of the cream covers quite a large area. The scent is a little strong, but in this case is fresh and pleasant – certainly not a deal breaker. I found the cream very hydrating and it left my usually very dry skin feeling soft, supple and comfortable. After three weeks of daily use my stretchmarks also look a little more even textured and my C Section scar feels softer and less taut.
Once again I’m impressed with InstaNatural. They really do pour their heart and soul into researching the most effective formulas and sourcing the best natural ingredients and it shows in their products, which are not only effective but a pleasure to use. Funky smell aside I’d be happy to use either of these products again and recommend them to friends.
