InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum #InstaNatural


 Hello, Fireflies!

Do you remember when I told you about my deliciously-scented hair? That hair masque, by InstaNatural, was pretty amazing.  At the time I was sent that, I was offered a chance to try their Hyaluronic Acid Serum, too.

InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Ok, it's another serum, I hear ya.  First of all, you can't have too many serums! Where else are you going to find a concentrated dose of all the things your skin loves? They also play well with toners and moisturizers, so you can use the products that you know work well on your skin.

I'm loving this ingredient list.  So many things I recognize and understand are good for my skin - Aloe, Witch Hazel, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin C, Green Tea..and it's formulated without alcohol or parabens, and it's cruelty-free.
The texture of this serum reminds me a lot of one of its ingredients - aloe vera.  It has a very nice viscosity to it - look at that bubble!- but it absorbs quickly, with no greasiness or tacky residue.
It smells very faintly, but, like the masque, it smells so good.  It has a fresh, herbal quality to it - not medicinal at all.  With so many choices out there for hyaluronic serums, the details matter.  When I'm putting on a serum, it's important to me that it feels and smells nice, in addition to working well.

I do think it works well, too.  My skin has few wrinkles, and the texture is soft and plump.  I'm even getting my husband to use serums now that he's got his CPAP mask and it's drying out his face every night.

As of the time of this writing, this serum is on sale at Amazon.com down from $49.95 to $16.75 for 2 oz.  No code needed, and it ships free with Amazon Prime.

What do you look for in a serum?

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

    1. Your skin is so sensitive, that's saying something! I just washed my hair last night and used their hair masque. MMMMMMM.

  14. I have become an HA addict. I take it systemically in NeoCell HA Blueberry Liquid and in Fish Collagen capsules. My vitamin C serums have HA in it, and I am trying out a new HA serum. I believe in it. My aesthetician told me I was one of the rare people who she works with who has well-hydrated skin, yay!! Glad you are enjoying this. Sounds like Instanatural is a great brand to try :)
