Product Review: Emu Oil by InstaNatural


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

This product is 100% Pure Refined Emu Oil. It comes with a nice spray dispenser that can be used to spray the product on your hair or skin, or on the palm of your hand to spread into your hair or skin, depending on what works better for you. Only a little bit of the product is needed.

I loved the way the Emu Oil made my hair feel! It gave my hair a healthy look and was easier to comb through. I think it also gave my hair a lighter brownish tint. I didn’t see on the directions how often this product is supposed to be used so I used it every few days. It also seemed to have better results when I put in on my hair about 20 minutes before showering, versus putting it on my hair right before showering.

I am looking forward to the future uses I have left of this product because it feels like it is very healthy for my hair.

Product Review: Dead Sea Mud Mask by InstaNatural

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

I never thought I would ever be putting mud my face but I’m glad I did in this case because I think this product did something really great to my facial skin! When I thought of mud facial products before I thought that the ingredients in the products probably just looked like mud, but there is actually real mud in this product, and I’m happy that it’s from the Dead Sea!
                   
The first time I used this product I didn’t notice much of a difference to my skin, but it felt a little cleaner. When I used it a week later (it says to use it not more than once a week on the directions), my skin felt and looked a lot cleaner and purer to me. Since this product is supposed to detoxify I think it must have lifted some toxic stuff from my skin.

It still feels kind of strange to have a can of mud on my counter but I am sure I will get used to it as this product continues to purify my skin. The product has some other ingredients in it as well and it can also be used for body treatment.

Product Review: Signature Antioxidant Skin Care Serum by Yumi Beautiful



Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

I love the bottle that the Signature Antioxidant Skin Care Serum I received came in, with a clear lid, a easy-to-use pump, and a decorative-looking bottle. It also looks nice on my counter.

After using this product my face looked clear and it looked like it glowed in a healthy way. I could only see lines near my eyes when I smiled, which I think most everybody is used to. My skin also felt healthy while using it.

I was excited to learn that these superfruit extracts were in this product:

Pomegranate, Green Tea, Blackberry, Cranberry, Acai Berry, Goji Berry, Noni, Kale

This is the first Yumi Beautiful product I have tried and I am satisfied with the experience!

Product Review: Argan Oil by InstaNatural

I absolutely love the Argan Oil Hair Treatment and Elixir from InstaNatural! It left my hair feeling so healthy! Even when I skipped a day while using it my hair felt so bouncy and alive. Part of the directions on the bottle I received says to apply this product any time for a “ten-minute, two-hour, or overnight repair treatment”, and to “Shampoo after treatment”. I left it in usually about twenty minutes and then I shampooed it out. It was also easy to comb through my hair after using it.

Ingredients listed on the 4 fl oz product bottle I received:

Organic Sunflower Oil, Organic Argan Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Panthenol, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Shea Butter

I received this product free of charge for an honest and unbiased review.

Product Review: Vitamin C Lotion by Foxbrim

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

Foxbrim’s Vitamin C Lotion can be used on the face and also as an all-over body moisturizer. I decided to use it on my hands because they get real dry in the winter and start cracking. Overall, my hands feel a lot smoother after using this product on them. When I put this lotion over the areas on my hands that were cracking it didn’t totally heal those areas, but it did smooth those areas out a little bit. I do not think it’s made to heal cracking but it impressed me that it smoothed those areas out a little bit while using it on my hands.

I noticed some organic ingredients on the product label also, which I love to have included in the products that I use. Some of the main ingredients include Aloe Vera, MSM, and Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil).

Product Review: Stretch Marks & Scars Defense Cream by Body Merry


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
 I absolutely love Body Merry's Stretch Mark and Scars Defense Cream! Some of the main ingredients are organic cocoa butter, shea butter, vitamin e, c, b3, b5, and pure plant oils.

I have had about a 4-6 inch scar on my right leg that could be seen through panty hose. I don't think it has totally disappeared since I have used this product on that scar but it really has lightened up my skin so that it is not as noticeable! And I didn't need to put much of this product on the scar before my skin started returning more to its normal color. I could honestly see this product working after the first application.

There is a scent to this product, it reminds me of suntan lotion. So, instead of using it twice per day like the directions state, I have been using  it one time per day, at night. The scent doesn't bother me, I just don't want others who are sensitive to the smell to have to smell it.

I remember a lot about what the scar looked liked on my right leg before I started using this product on it; I think I can still see traces of it. I think that people that haven't known I have had the scar probably wouldn't be able to tell that it is/was there if they were to see my right leg now.

I'm so happy with the results of this product!

Product Review: Retinol Surge Moisturizer by Body Merry

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
 
I am happy for the opportunity to try and review Retinol Surge Moisturizer by Body Merry. I like the 3.4 fl oz bottle that it comes in. It dispenses about a dime sized amount of moisturizer when the dispensing head is pushed down.

I used this product on my face. It gave my face a glow that I have not noticed ever having before, and my forehead (which usually glows sometimes for some reason) more of a glow. I am not sure if the glow I received was from the organic Jojoba oil, or from some other ingredient. I do not think I have used many or any Retinol products before, and I also am not used to the oil look that some people have, which might be a sign that their skin is very healthy. From the ingredient label of this product, it looks like there are a lot of healthy ingredients in it, so I am believing whatever this product did with my skin while using it was mostly or totally healthy.

Product Review: Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer by InstaNatural


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

Niacinamide Vitamin B3 Moisturizer by InstaNatural hydrates and plumps skin. This is another product I have noticed that have many different organic ingredients in it; helping me to feel better about putting it on my skin knowing that some or all of the ingredients are healthy. There was a scent to this product that was new to me when I was applying it, that I cannot explain. My skin felt and looked kind of oily after putting this product on my face, although that might have been hydration that it added to my skin. My skin still feels soft as a result of using it, even after having it on my skin more than a day ago.

Product Review: Youth Express Eye Gel by InstaNatural

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

Youth Express Eye Gel by InstaNatural helped lessen the appearance of dark circles under my eyes. I like to put it on before any serum or moisturizer is applied. It has a little bit of a scent to it and I could feel it doing something to my skin as soon as I applied it; to me it felt kind of like it does when alcohol is applied to my skin. It has some organic ingredients in it, which makes me feel like some (and maybe all) of the ingredients might be healthy for my skin.

Product Review: Vitamin B12 by Nutrabear

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

Vitamin B12 by Nutrabear does not only contain Vitamin B-12, it also contains Vitamins A, B-6, C, D, and E. Each serving contains 3 gummy bears, which are supposed to be taken/eaten 3 hours apart. The bottle of 90 gummy bear vitamins I received has enough for 30 servings (30 days). The vitamins contain no artificial colors (one of the ingredients is natural flavors), although the ingredient label explains that annatto, tumeric, and elderberry juice are used for colors. Other ingredients include corn syrup, sugar, water, pectin, citric acid, sodium citrate, coconut oil, and carnauba wax. It is also advertised on my product label as being gelatin and gluten free.

I love the taste of these gummy bear vitamins! I believe this product benefitted me nutritionally, since it is supposed to help people to maintain more of a healthy vegetarian lifestyle. I am not totally a vegetarian, although I do not eat very much meat during the week. On the days I did eat meat I tried to only eat one or two gummy bears, there were some other days I only ate one or two gummies also. 



The gummy bear vitamins in my bottle did not look the same as the ones in the above pictures. The gummy bears in my bottle were brownish and yellowish colors. At one point I had my bottle of gummies on my stand next to the window; I noticed they were starting to melt so I put them in another place where sunlight couldn’t hit them. This product contains carnauba wax, which I think is what caused them to start to melt in the sunlight. 

I also believe this product helped with my energy level as well. I think it will be a fun vitamin product for a lot of people, that also tastes good!

Product Review: Old Factory Candle Gift Set: Fall Harvest by Old Factory

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.
I was very happy to receive an Old Factory Candle Gift set to review! The gift set I received was Fall Harvest, which came with a pumpkin spice, autumn leaves, and cranberry scented candle. Each candle is supposed to burn clean and even for 20 hours.


I loved the box the three candles came in! It was divided into three sections for each candle. It also came with a card on top of the candles, indicating which candle had which scent. There is also a sticker on the bottom of each candle, to indicate which scent each candle is also.


Fall is my favorite time of the year so I want to have the candles around to pick up and smell during the fall season, which is why I didn’t light any of the candles I received. I hope to pick them up and smell them for awhile because I love the scent of each candle!

This Old Factory candle gift set makes a great gift for people who like to light scented candles, and also for people who like to pick up the candles to smell without lighting them!

Product Review: Intensive Anti-Wrinkle Cream by Adovia


Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

Intensive Anti-wrinkle cream by Adovia is advertised for all skin types. It is made in Israel and contains Dead Sea Salt and Minerals, Vitamin C, Lactic Acid and Collagen. It is supposed to help maintain a long term anti-wrinkle effect.

It felt good to put this product on my face, because I love to use products made in Israel! I could smell sea salt as I applied it to my face…I love that smell! My skin has looked smooth, firm, and healthy since I started using it on my face, and any lines I have had on my face now look tighter. I used it in conjunction with an age-defying skin clearing serum, and I think the two products complimented each other.

I am looking forward to noticing some long term effects of using this product because I can already see a great difference after using it for a little over a week!

Product Review: Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum by Instanatural

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial.

I am happy with the results since using Age-Defining Skin Clearing Serum by Instanatural. Any lines I had on my face now look tighter since using it. At first I thought maybe it was causing my skin to break out. I stopped using it for about day or two because I thought maybe it needed time to adjust to this product. I also used it in conjunction with an intensive anti-wrinkle cream, so I think maybe both products complimented the other. My skin seems to now look clear and healthy after using this product for about a week!
