BrandBacker: InstaNatural's Argan Oil Hair Mask, 100% Organic Argan Oil, and Skin Clearing Serum
I've been able to test out InstaNatural's latest group of natural products. Check out the rest of the blog post to find out what they are and what I thought about them~
InstaNatural sent me three products, and they were:
100% Argan Oil
Superior Hydration Argan Oil Hair Mask
Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum
Out of these three products, the Argan Oil has to be my favorite. I've been on an "oil-as-moisturizer" fad lately because I want to take better care of my skin and keep it hydrated during this dry winter, but I hate the sticky feeling of lotion. I've heard oils, such as jojoba or again are great moisturizers so I've been meaning to give them a try. Luckily, InstaNatural sent me this product right in time.
This product claims to be multipurpose, but I've just been using it for my hands and nails (I've also been needing to work on my nail care). I've been using it on and off for about a week to a week and a half and it has done a decent job at keeping my skin and nails hydrated. The oil does not feel slimy or sticky, but you can feel instant hydration. It doesn't take very long to dry either, probably ten minutes or so, before you can manage your smartphones. For my hands, I personally like to use about three to four pumps and rub it into my hands and each nail/cuticle.
My next favorite product of the bunch has to be the Argan Oil Hair Mask. I've never used a hair mask before, so I thought how much more could this help my hair? And after using it two to three times, each time after rinsing it out and my hair dried, it felt softer than before. My hair was already soft and in fairly good condition already, but this made it feel softer. It didn't necessarily change it's appearance, but more on texture. I thought it would be over conditioning my hair and would make it feel heavy and oily afterward, but my hair came out the same or slightly in better condition after using it.
To use, I scooped out a few handfuls (since I have long hair, so amounts depend on hair length), and spread it all over my hair from scalp to tips. I basically worked it in, as if it was conditioner. Make sure your hair is damp before hand, so that the product can better absorb into your hair. Then after ten to fifteen minutes, it's time to rinse it out in the shower! I didn't even need to use a shampoo or any other hair product after this.
The last product is the Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum. It comes in an eye dropper applicator and the serum is a thin, runny liquid that when rubbed into the skin, disappears into the skin leaving no visible white residue.
I don't know if my skin was acting up that week or it was the product, but after using it once and my skin got slightly irritated in that spot, I didn't bother to continue testing it out. I'm sure it's just my own skin reacting to this product, but if you are willing, definitely test this out yourself to see if it works for you!
