InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum - review

InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum
 
Hyaluronic Acid has become a popular ingredient is skincare products in recent years. And rightly so because it's a fantastic substance which naturally occurs in human body, especially between skin cells, in the inner part of our eyes and joints. Hyaluronic Acid can retain up to 1000 times its weight in water hence its great moisturising properties. Babies have plump, smooth skin because they are born with high amount of Hyaluronic Acid which sadly decreases as we age. That's why skincare products containing this ingredient are so great to improve the skin's appearance.
There is a great article here if you want to read more about benefits of Hyaluronic Acid but I will stop now before you get bored and start feeling like during Science class :)

A few weeks ago I was offered the opportunity to try the Hyaluronic Acid Serum by InstaNatural and seeing my skin in a really bad dehydrated state I didn't hesitate.
InsatNatural is a small company from Florida who developed skincare line using premium organic and natural ingredients without harmful acohols, parabens and sulfates.
 
 
Hyaluronic Acid Serum contains botanically derived Hyaluronic Acid along with antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Vera and Green Tea to help our skin looks younger.
It claims to sooth dry and flaky skin and increase its hydration and firmness.

The Serum comes in a glass bottle with a pipette which, because of the gel-like consistency of the product, I found not very effective at delivering the right amount of product. I think squeezy tube would be better.  
The product is a clear lightweight gel that gets absorbed in seconds without leaving any oily/sticky residue, it does have a slightly herbal/Aloe scent which I found a bit unpleasant at the beginning but quickly got used to it, the scent doesn't linger for more than couple of minutes so it's not a big deal for me.
 
 
The Hyaluronic Acid Serum leaves my skin feeling comfortable but in a need of a moisturiser, maybe because my skin has been on a drier side lately but more likely it's just the kind of product that should be the extra step in our skincare routine not the main one. I used before a different serum with Hyaluronic Acid and it was similar.
In the first couple of weeks I didn't noticed any difference in my skin while using the InstaNatural Serum but now, after a month of applying it every morning to my face I can see my skin becoming less dehydrated, more plumpy and healthier looking. I didn't noticed any breakouts when adding this Serum to my skincare routine and my skin didn't feel irritated. I will keep using it because there are only benefits for my skin, especially now, after all those cold months when my skin became a bit more problematic and in a need of extra hydration.
 
If you'd like to try the InstaNatural Hyaluronic Acid Serum you can order it from Amazon, here, for only £13.97 with free UK delivery.

  1. That's a great price for a serum! Much cheaper than Hydraluron! xx

  2. Sounds like a lovely serum, my skin is rebelling at the moment from trying new products so the break outs are terrible so knowing that it was okay on your does give some hope. :)

  3. I really liked this serum too :) I hadn't actively looked for hyaluronic acid as an ingredient before this xx

  4. I hate when serums leave a sticky substance to your skin, so I am super glad to hear that this doesn't do that at all.

  5. Great and detailed review, Dagmara! I have read mixed reviews on this serum which is why I am hesitant in purchasing it. Good to know that it worked for you and didn't cause any breakouts. xx

  6. I'm really interested in trying this serum because it's the missing step in my evening skincare routine at the moment and I feel my skin is getting oilier than it should because it's actually a bit dehydrated. So I'll add this to my shopping list!

  8. Yeah, I know the feeling, when you read mixed reviews it's hard to just jump in to something. I can't say this serum is a miracle worker but it's definitely helping my skin to look and feel better :) x

  9. I hate that sticky feeling too, it puts me off the product immediately! x

  10. I knew about the benefits of Hyaluronic Acids so I was glad to add this serum to my skincare routine :) x

  11. I know, my skin lately reacted really badly to something and I'm really wary now to try new products. x

  13. Great posts, so informative as I had no clue about all of this. I tried the ever so popular Hydraluron from Indeed Labs as a moisturiser a while ago and definitely found it that I still needed an extra moisture boost so I dismissed it without even thinking about it too much, but now I get it. Very tempted to get this as it's so affordable x

  15. Definitely this kind of serum only adds boost of hydration but can't be the only moisturiser. Glad you found my post helpful :) x
