Review // InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Serum*

As a mama, sometimes I find myself short on time. Burning the midnight oil is essential if I want to catch up on shows I like to watch, finish crochet projects, and still find time to spend with family and friends. And now, we've started the dreaded potty training. What is sleep again?

Last month, InstaNatural got in touch with me, asking if I would be interested in trying out their Youth Express Eye Serum. Knowing that it was something I could incorporate into my daily routine to make me look less like a zombie, I jumped at the chance. As any mother knows, what sleep you do get is vitally important. When you don't get enough, no matter what you try, your eyes are always the first area to suffer. 



Using a combination including kojic acid, vitamin C, caffeine and hyaluronic acid, this serum is formulated to reduce dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles.  It can be used alone, or under makeup. The serum is lovely and lightweight, and absorbs quickly into the skin. Because it uses a pipette to dispense product, it's easy to only use what you need. This particular serum is a bright orange, somewhat different to the clear/white serums I've used in the past. It also has a distinctive orange scent, in fact it reminds me of Terry's Chocolate Orange, without the calories!

But did it work? Yes! Because I don't get a lot of sleep the majority of the time, before I started using this, my eyes were puffy and tired looking the whole day though. Now though, I feel more confident without makeup. I don't look like I've been up all night, or spent hours crying at The Notebook. I tend to use one drop per eye in the mornings, gently patting it in to the undereye area until it's fully absorbed. In the evenings, I use two drops per eye. While I could do with it more during the day, when I have to actually see people and not scare them with my puffy eyes filled with bags, I find that it works a lot better when I use it without slapping makeup on afterwards.

An American based company, InstaNatural boasts a wide range of products, free from harmful alcohols, sulphates and parabens. In addition, none of their products have been tested on animals. While they're not available in shops at the moment, you can purchase their products from their website or through Amazon.
