First Impressions:InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask + Retinol Moisturizer

Assalamu wa Alaykum/ Hi,

Today's blogpost is going to be my first impressions on InstaNatural's Dead Sea Mud mask and Retinol moisturizer. I refer to this as a first impressions and not a review because these two products are skin care items and I've only had them for about a week. I normally like to use skin care items for a longer period of time before I voice my opinion on them. I will do a follow up review that will be more in depth. You can visit their website here. These products were sent to me for review. However, I will always offer my honest thoughts and opinions.

  • Dead Sea Mud Mask

This mask is dark gray color. It's very thick but it feels like a gel. When it starts to dry it becomes tight. However, it's not the same kind of tightness you get from an ordinary mud mask. It's as if it get progressively tighter the more it dries. It's not uncomfortable though.  When I finally washed it off my face was soft and smooth. I'll need to use it longer to see the true effects this has.

  • Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer

This moisturizer  seems to be geared toward more mature skin, which I do not have yet. It's supposed to restore and renew firmness, elasticity, and thickness of skin. I apply this in the mornings after I've washed my face. I apply a sun screen and mattifying lotion after it.  I don't use this in the evenings because I use olive oil as a moisturizer at night.  Although this moisturizer seem a bit thicker it's not as moisturizing as I would like. Especially, since it's still cold out.

When I use this I notice that any dried acne seems to go away faster. It happened to me today actually. I just washed my face so I can record a makeup tutorial for my Youtube channel and I had a dried out pimple (hate that word!) on my cheek and the scab covering (I know, gross! I couldn't think of another word) came off while I was washing my face. It didn't start to bleed or anything. My skin feels very smooth after I apply it. I don't feel the texture on my skin as much.

So, That's it.
Have you tried anything from InstaNatural? What did you think?

Until Next Time,

Aleema :)
