REVIEW: Dead Sea Mud Mask & Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer from InstaNatural

20150225_145012

We’ve known for a while that the waters of the Dead Sea have some sort of beneficial effect on skin.  The salty water and earth of the Sea have been used in tons of beauty products lately, such as scrubs, soaps, toners, and more.  I got the opportunity to try out a Dead Sea Mud Mask from InstaNatural, as well as an Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer!

Manufacturer Information about the Dead Sea Mud Mask:

InstaNatural’s Dead Sea Mud Mask is an all-natural detoxifier and purifier that comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea. More than a million visitors each year flock to this extraordinary body of water in the Mediterranean, which contains many minerals beneficial to the skin, such as magnesium, sodium, bromine, potassium and calcium. Once applied, this mud mask treatment starts working to absorb excess oil, dirt and toxins from the skin. It is great to expunge acne, pimples and blackheads. It also helps to restore an even skin tone for a smoother complexion. When used as a body treatment, the mud mask can soothe and relieve muscles aches and pains. Whether used on the face or the body, our Dead Sea Mud Mask is a superb in-home spa treatment that will reveal more vibrant, refined, healthier skin.

 

This mud mask is a huge jar, and I can tell that it will last me a very long time!  Just from one use, this is all that was removed…and I could have gone with less, as I think I put it rather thicker than it should have been.

The texture is not unlike that of chocolate pudding, to be honest, although there are some small bits that don’t offer much in the way of grittiness.

There’s not really any scent to be noted.  Upon first putting the mask on, I noticed a cool tingling.  I liked it quite a bit.  My main issue was that as the mask went through the process of drying on my face, it began to itch.  This irritate me to the point where I definitely had to wash it off before the full 15 minutes was up, but I think my skin may be more on the sensitive side.

I did feel an immediate softness on my face after using the mud mask.  I think I will be most interested in using this mask on the rougher parts of my body, such as elbows and feet!

I had heard of retinol before, but I was never really sure what its’ benefits were. That’s why I was excited to test this moisturizer.

Manufacturer Information about the Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer:

Harness the extraordinary power of retinol with InstaNatural’s Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer… perfect for night and day. InstaNatural’s restorative cream contains a robust formula of handpicked ingredients designed to improve your complexion. Retinol (Vitamin A) promotes healthier skin and helps to reverse the signs of aging, while Vitamin C & Green Tea strengthen skin to protect against external aggressors that cause damage. In addition, Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil & Shea Butter deeply moisturize the skin to provide long-lasting hydration.

Using InstaNatural’s moisturizing cream daily will help to transform older, damaged skin into a healthier and youthful appearance by: diminishing the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines; reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, such as sun spots, age spots and dark spots; helping control breakouts and reducing blemishes, restoring firmness and elasticity of skin, evening skin tone & texture; and delivering ultimate moisturize for soft, supple skin.

I love that this moisturizer dispenses from a pump, and one pump dispenses just enough to cover my face.  The texture is perfect, not too thick but not too thin.  It glides easily on the face and take very little time to absorb.  I began to feel that my face was softer and more hydrated after only a couple of uses.  One important thing to mention about using a facial product with Retinol–being out in the sun can lead to more damage.  So, I will be using this as strictly a night time moisturizer.

I was very impressed with both products I received from InstaNatural.  I’m also happy to say both the Dead Sea Mud Mask and Retinol Moisturizer are made in the USA and animal cruelty free!

Best of all, InstaNatural offers a 100% money back guarantee for all its’ products.
