As many of you know, I have struggled with acne nearly my entire life. My first visit to a dermatologist came at 14 and my most recent visit was at age 35 and yes, it was for acne. I have had some good periods in my life where I’ve been able to stay off medications or prescribed topical treatments for months at a time, but I always have a re-occurrence and it is almost always severe enough to have to undergo prescribed treatments. About 2 years ago, my dermatologist recommended Acutane (it’s called something different now, but that is what it is most commonly known as). I was fearful of the side effects, but decided to give it a go. It is one of the best things that I’ve ever done. Since that treatment, I have not had any ongoing acne-related skin issues. I am able to experiment with products (which you all know I love) and I’m actually able to work on my next issue – combating the effects of aging.
That brings me to InstaNatural’s Age Defying Skin Clearing Serum, which I received through Brandbacker to sample and review. Along with the serum, I also received the Vitamin C Facial Toner which targets tightening pores and reducing the signs of aging.
The products have a strong citrus scent, which took some getting used to. If citrus is not your thing – these products may not be for you because it is pretty strong. In terms of helping with skin issues: I have used the products for 7 days in a row and did not experience any breakouts (which is still big deal for me when trying a new product, even one geared for reducing acne). I use the serum just once per day as it does have retinol in it and that can be drying on sensitive skin. The Serum is focused on reversing the signs of aging while at the same time treating acne and hyperpigmentation. It is packed with a great line-up of proven acne and anti-aging ingredients. Besides retinol, the formula also includes acne champions sulfer, salicylic acid, niacinamide for redness, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid to repairing damaged skin. The toner, I used twice each day. It is so refreshing! I have come to like the invigorating citrus scent.
