InstaNatural Niacinamide 5% Skin Serum: Reviewed

I was able to try out another product from the InstaNatural Company. I have always been impressed with the company and this product did not disappoint. I have not been impressed with companies that claim to be a fountain of youth or to make me look younger in a few weeks, especially when they use ingredients that are packed with chemicals and toxins. I have found that using natural ingredients actually helps pamper my skin better than chemicals, and the effects are long term.

I Oil cleanse my face each day so am not new to the wonders of oil application on my skin. Some people who are not accustomed to applying oil on their skin may be concerned with it adding excess shine, cause heavy oil production, or cause breakouts. I have come to find out that using oils on my skin overtime has actually balanced my skin, hydrated it, and improved my skin's appearance and texture. I have fewer breakouts, smaller pores, and my skin is not red or grumpy.

The InstaNatural Niacinamide 5% skin cream has anti-aging and rejuvenating effects on skin. Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 and it can suppress melanin, protecting the skin from further UV damage. Melanin is responsible for giving skin its color and absorbing UV rays. If there is a higher amount of Melanin in the skin, this can result in age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation. Niacinamide can fades age spots, brighten, and whiten skin because of its ability to correct hyperpigmentation. It can also reduce wrinkling, fade acne redness/scarring, and clear up existing acne. I like how this is a high concentration of Niacinamide. The following percentages of Niacinamide show what this can do to improve skin at different levels.

2% collagen synthesis
4% oily / acne skin treatments
5% spots / uneven skin tone and skin texture treatments

Niacinamide at even 2% can reduce moisture loss in the skin and provides nutrient rich fatty acids which can account for younger, plumper, firmer skin. It has also been proven at high concentrations (between 3-4%) to be a very effective acne reducer. Source,Source.

With this serum being at a high 5%, it can really be ultra beneficial to my skin and others like me. I am 32, and starting to see fine lines around my delicate eye area. I thankfully do not have any major skin troubles right now, as I have been sulfate free, and with the addition of using facial oils, my skin has improved in the past 2 years. I do have rather dark blue toned under eye circles that I have tried to correct for years, and am still longing for some brightening in that area. I have been applying this cream all over my face and eye area, and have added extra cream around dark areas of my eyes. I am wishful that this might be my key to a prettier eye area.

This serum/cream is lightweight and glides across my skin. It does feel a little heavy at first, so I mainly use this at night before bed. I do apply some of this before my make up application, however I use a lighter hand. I like the additional ingredients of Aloe Vera, Avocado Oil, Rosemary Extract, Neem, Vegetable Glycerin and Hyaluronic Acid. After this serum has absorbed into my skin, I do notice that my face is soft and smooth, without any stickiness or greasy texture.

I always apply Vitamin C serum and Hyaluronic acid serums prior to my application of the Niacinamide 5%. I like mixing this cream with my makeup primer before applying my BB cream and mineral foundation.

This comes in a dark cobalt blue pump bottle and is easy to dispense. The product is a mixture of a serum and lotion. I do apply this on the tops of my hands sometimes as I often have some splotchy pink areas and I am always concerned about my hands looking older than I really am. My mom would always clean the bathtub or our home with old fashioned bleach and harsh Ajax scrubbing cleanser and would neglect to use gloves, her hands now show years of hard scrubbing. I try to moisturize my hands (and use gloves while cleaning) to prevent damage to my hands.

I like this cream a lot and what is wonderful is that the company is fantastic with customer satisfaction and service. I like how they make their items here in the USA. They never test on animals and they show all their ingredients on their labels.
