InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel Review

Good Afternoon!

I have another review for you today. 

 First off, let me tell you that I noticed the hour that we lost. I heard on our news that our bodies will recover in a week. Most people wont even miss it because we, as a society, don't sleep a total of 8 hrs anyway, the Dr. said most people get 6 1/2. Amazing, right! I know I do not get that many, but I am somewhat of an insomniac anyway.

Anyway, on to the business at hand....

This review for InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel is entirely my own opinion. I have not been paid for my review or my opinion. I just got the product to review for free. 

I will tell you, I am picky about my blog reviews. First off, if you are charging me shipping then its NOT FREE. I can't do reviews where I have to put out one dime, that's not fair to the people. When I click on something that says FREE, I don't expect to have to get out my card to pay for shipping. 

I do HONEST reviews, and InstaNatural nor Tomoson has provided me with any money to do this review. Yes, even the shipping was free.

Here we go....

This is the 1.7 fl oz (or 50 ml) pump bottle of InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel that I received in the mail. 

After reading about it online and in the information provided me, I decided to start on a Sunday and track my progress. 

Here is some information on the InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel.

Now all this sounds really good, right? Well, its whats in the bottle that counts. After I had taken my evening shower and gotten myself through my night time routine I read the directions on the back of the InstaNatural Eye Gel bottle and went from there. Here are the directions for using the product per the back of the bottle...

Dab gently around the eyes, forehead and cheek area. Allow to dry. Use twice daily (morning and night) for best results. Can be applied to entire face to fight against the signs of aging. 

The caution on the bottle says external use only. Discontinue use if irritation or redness occurs. Avoid direct contact with eyes, if contact occurs, rise well with water. Keep out of reach of children. Product contains TREE NUTS. If you suspect an allergic reaction discontinue use and consult your doctor. 

Now, here is where I have a problem. As a mom with an older child who is highly allergic to tree nuts I am always reading the information on the bottle. I did not know, until really reading the label, that this product contains tree nuts. I think this should have more attention on the label. I would have read it good first of course but maybe someone else would not have. I don't want to have to say my child could have been blinded or died from an eye gel. The label does have a cute bunny in a box warning that this product is not tested on animals. A pet peeve of mine but in no way does this affect what the cream looked, felt like, and/or done to my face. 

OK, really that's the only part of this review that bugged me. 

Here is a picture of a dot of the creme on my hand. It's kinda hard to take a picture of your own eye all the time to track progress. My boyfriend thinks I am a crazy!

This is a dot of the InstaNatural Eye Gel on my hand. It came out not as thick as I thought gel would be. Which, I think is a good thing. When I read the directions on how to apply it, the gel itself went on nice an light. No greasy look or feeling to it at all. I used this gel on my eye area and the tops of my cheekbones. While it was drying it did not sting or burn, there was no real smell to it, and in no time I couldn't tell I had put it on there. I liked that. I have a sensitive face, especially around the eyes. I could not feel this gel one it was into my skin. It did not dry sticky either, which I think a lot of gel's have the tendency to do and I do not like, and is a BIG factor when I make a purchase (that's why I love to try before I buy).

You can see in the picture, where the glow is. That is where I put the InstaNatural Eye Gel for the pics in this review. Once it dried, it was like I never put it on. I have been using the InstaNatural Eye Creme for 2 weeks now, and I can't see a difference in dark spots, BUT I DO see less puffiness.  My eye area in general is more hydrated, my skin softer with no irritation for me at all. I am 42, and my face is not perfect. I am your average mom. 

Honest opinion, I think if I keep using the InstaNautral Eye Gel I will definitely see some noticeable results. I love that its natural and organic. It makes me feel good about putting it on my face. It's a really simple addition to my face routine and I have been using it twice a day like the bottle recommends. This bottle is going to last a long time. It just takes a couple little "dots" and your eye area is nice and moisturized.

My problem with my eye area? I have some blue circles, that really show when I am tired, and a few dark spots from that darn sun that I would love to fade. I am going to keep using this and see if we can do some work on that. I am going to keep using this InstaNatural Eye Gel. I think it's worth a shot. 

Here is what Amazon looks like, if your interested....

Sale:$19.95 FREE Shipping on orders over $35. Details

I think its a great sale price (wow, at the reg. price) but I don't usually pay this much for an eye gel. I would have to think on the price some but I am a bargain hunter and I have never spent $20.00 on ONE item for my face. 
I know some of you do, and if you are those people, then give this a try. Its nice for sensitive skin, and I love anything that moisturizes and promises results. 
Make up your own mind....
Read the reviews, do your research.

Here are a few links for InstaNatural...

I feel pretty good about this one, I tried my best to get all the info out there for you to make your best informed decision.

Have a great rest of the day!
