Now, let’s get this review done & dusted. I’m back with another skincare product review from one of my favourite beauty brands, InstaNatural, who are an
American skincare company that specialise in natural beauty products. Today, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on their Youth Express Night Cream which retails
at around £ in the UK and $ in the USA. I’ve had this cream lying around for ages and thought I’d give it a good trial before I posted my review on it. So, here goes…
WHAT IS IT:
A rich night cream that works as an anti-aging product. It works by hydrating & plumping the skin to keep it soft & supple. The key ingredients are Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) which can help reduce redness and imflammination as well as diminish the appearance of acne, scars and hyperpigmentation. Matrixyl 3000, Vitamin C which promotes healthy skin by reducing damage from external factors such as sun exposure. Rosehip Oil which is great for combatting wrinkles and fine lines. The night cream also contains Organic Aloe Vera, Argan Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Avacado Oil and Evening Primrose Oil.
HOW TO USE:
Cleanse and tone the skin just before bedtime and put a small amount of cream to the fingertips and apply to your face and neck in a circular, upward motion. Leave to dry completely, in my experience this takes a good 10 minutes or so to fully absorb the cream. Although this is a night
cream it can and is best use morning and night for best results.
WHAT I LIKE:
I’ve been using the cream for three weeks now, once daily before bedtime. The cream is a thick, luxurious white lotion which spreads easily across the skin, completely hydrating and moisturising it. Although I hate waiting around for it to absorb fully, I am pleased with the results so far and I have noticed that my skin does look more youthful than before I started using it. It’s hard to explain but I have both dull grey areas on my face as well as the
odd bit of redness so finding a cream that brightens up your complexion as well as reducing redness is great! Not to mention how well it moisturises any dry patches. Once fully absorbed and I have catched up on my beauty sleep – I wake up to soft and supple skin as the cream works its magic through the night by hydrating and plumping the skin. I love the fact that all the ingredients in the cream are completely natural and plant derived. The cream seriously is packed to the brim with goodness. Obviously, it’s great that InstaNatural have not tested the cream on animals and another plus is that the bottle is eco-friendly and can be recycled.
WHAT I DONT LIKE:
My least favourite thing about the cream is how long it takes to absorb into the skin, I hate creams that don’t dry quickly and I’ve waited about 10 minutes each time for it to dry so it didn’t rub off on my expensive pillowcases. Also, the cream does not feel lightweight on the skin and instead feels kinda heavy on my face if that makes sense, like my skin can’t breathe. So if you’re after a lightweight night cream, this one isn’t for you as it’s rich, thick and feels like a barrier over the skin.
WORTH THE MONEY:
I do like the cream and it does work but I prefer a lightweight, fast absorbing cream so I doubt I’ll repurchase it. I think there are better creams out there to suit my skin type and for much less too but the ingredients in this cream are all natural and good and natural products are always a little more expensive than chemical laden products, so I suppose you get what you pay for, good ingredients and no harsh chemicals.
