InstaNatural kindly offered to send me some more of their products to try and after the success of their eye gel, I thought ‘why the hell not?’ I wanted to choose two products which would help with my problem areas at the moment – my hair and skin. This led me to the Rose Water Facial Toner and the Organic Argan Oil.
InstaNatural Rose Water Toner
I had heard some great things about rose water, but it was never a product that I ever really used. However, given the chance to use a version which had no chemicals, preservatives or artificial fragrances, I jumped at the chance.
The product claims that it is suitable for all skin types, but past experience has made me become wary of such statements. I am happy to say, however, that the rose water did indeed work well with my skin and was not the cause of any breakouts, a common occurrence when I try a new product. After a few days of applying the rose water to my face, I noticed a difference in my skin. It had become softer. I also found the toner to have a calming effect on my skin, particularly in those instances where I was forced to use wipes to remove my make up. Unfortunately, I didn’t see a reduction in redness by using this product but I think there is nothing in existence which will even my skin tone. Nevertheless, and satisfyingly enough, it did help with closing my pores. In addition, the product has a beautiful smell, and sinks in quite fast to the face meaning that moisture can be applied pretty quickly if in a rush.
InstaNatural Organic Argan Oil
The organic argan oil from InstaNatural is another 100% pure product with no fillers, binders or artificial ingredients. I chose to use the oil solely on my hair, even though it is also suitable for facial application. This is because I didn’t want to use too many new products at once on my sensitive skin. Once a week, I apply the oil (a generous enough amount but a little does go a long way) to my hair and leave it in overnight. My hair is so silky the next day when I wash it out! I wouldn’t say that it has totally combated the frizziness of my hair, but it certainly has improved the condition and makes it feel much healthier.
