Instanatural Retinol Moisturiser

Face and Body October 7, 2015 Naomi

*I was contacted by Instanatural and asked if I would review their Retinol moisturiser. I am a big lover of skincare products and having tried out a few Instanatural products already {and loving them}, I thought I would give this one a whirl.

The Retinol moisturiser contains Retinol{not a shocker I’m sure!}, Green Tea, Jojoba, Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C. The Retinol is from Vitamin A, that helps support Collagen and reduce pore size. It is used a lot not only in anti aging products but also as an ingredient to fight acne and unclog pores.

As a sufferer of acne in my teens I know how horrible it is to have a face full of spots! Now as a mature woman with a teen daughter I still get the odd time of the month chin spot, and yet I do want to target my fine lines and future wrinkles, so this dual purpose product is great. Not many of them exist on the market today sadly.

The cream sinks in straight away and has a matte finish so it is perfect under makeup. Do remember though that retinol can make skin sun sensitive so wear SPF as well!. I find that my fine lines look so much better, the small lines around my eyes just disappear. The cream is hydrating and plumping and leaves skin soft, My only niggle is if you use a lot it does feel a bit tacky, but that is probably just me being heavy handed.

Another thing I love is the packaging. The pump is really economical and pumps out just the right amount, it is also more hygienic, not sticking your hands in a jar.

The cream costs around twenty pounds and can be ordered from the Instanatural website or from Amazon. I highly recommend you give it a whirl if you have combination skin like me.

    I have been asked to review this product as well so I was very intrigued to hear what you thought! So far I am really liking the moisturiser! I love the matte finish and have been using it everyday before putting my make-up on! Mind if I link back to this post in my review to show someone else’s opinion? I will simply say that you also did a review so check it out? Little promo for you I guess if that’s alright? 😀

    This sounds amazing! I get a lot of spots no matter what time of the month it is and my pores in general are pretty awful! Think this would definitely be a great pick for me
