InstaNatural’s Youth Express Night Cream Review


Today I am going to review InstaNatural’s Youth Express Night Cream which I have been sent very kindly to try and review on my blog. So far I have used mostly Olay and Garnier night creams and I totally love them both. So when I got chance to review InstaNatural night cream I was really excited to try to see if it works same like Olay and Garnier. InstaNatural’s Youth Express Night Cream provides ultimate hydration benefits to your skin for an improved and more youthful appearance. Niacinamide, one of the key ingredients in formula, has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce redness and inflammation to soothe irritated skin. It is also known to help reduce acne, scars and hyperpigmentation. This thick moisturizing cream is perfect to apply at night to keep the skin hydrated and nourished.

InstaNatural is a cruelty free brand that uses natural and organic products and is made in the USA. All of their products are free of any harmful alcohol, sulfates, and parabens. They offer a 100% satisfaction money-back guarantee which is such a nice option because although this product works for me it may not work for you.

InstaNatural’s Youth Express Night Cream comes in an airtight opaque pump container. I love pumps because they’re way more sanitary than sticking your finger in a jar, it’s very easy to dispense the product with pump. This texture of this night cream is thick but not sticky or heavy on skin. It smells gorgeous very mild floral scent to me. This night cream does have ingredients that are supposed to be gentle on the skin which I was happy about since I have a sensitive skin. If you have dry skin then this product works great.

This is a lovely rich and thick cream. Before application I cleanse and tone my face and then I take a small amount of cream and apply it on my face and neck with my fingertips in a circular and upward motion. It glides on very smoothly. It absorbs into my skin very well without leaving a greasy feeling on your face. I use this every night as a part of my skincare regime and I wake up with soft, smooth skin. I have also used it in mornings for few days for long-lasting hydration. Only a few dabs of this cream are needed to perfectly hydrate my face and neck. It gives my skin a radiant and youthful glow.

I have a bit sensitive skin but I have not faced any issue with this cream. It has been very gentle on my skin. I don’t have any previous breakouts red marks or acne problem so I could not comment on that if this cream really works for soothing acne and blemishes. This cream really brighten up the skin tone. I have noticed since using this my skin looks plumper and brighter! From my experience I can say that this cream really suitable for dry to combination skin but if you have oily skin then I think it will be too heavy for you.

So what do you think about InstaNatural’s Youth Express Night Cream? Have you tried it already? Which night creams are your favourite? Do you have any recommendations for night creams?

Thank you,

Time Bomb Powerball Intensive Moisturiser Review


Today I am going to review Time Bomb Powerball Intensive Moisturiser which I have been sent very kindly to review on my blog. I have read many positive things about this moisturiser so when I got chance to review it I was super excited to try it on my dry skin. I have been sent two more products from Time Bomb Skincare range which I will review this week. Time Bomb Skincare is a radically simple, remarkably new approach to skin care. A collection of powerhouse formulas and breakthrough innovations developed to help women of all ages “stop the clock!”. Over time, everyone’s skin inevitably slows down. There are four key functions, that when no longer performing at optimum levels, cause skin to look older: loss of sloughing ability, loss of moisture, loss of oil (sebum), loss of collagen. Time Bomb’s range of skincare aims to combat the ‘core four’ reasons of ageing with skin-boosting Complexion Cocktails, daily moisturisers, serums, eye creams and more!

Time Bomb Powerball Intensive Moisturiser – £36.00      

Powerball is a true “watershed moment” in the evolution of skin miniaturization. This breakthrough technology defeats dehydration by flooding your skin with a power-house blend of 21 natural hydrating agents that act on every level…refilling, reviving…and most critically, retaining. The key to Powerball’s efficacy is Ectoin, a moisture grabbing and holding protein that enables organisms to thrive in harsh, arid, desert environments. Bio-protectant Trehalose helps preserve skin’s internal fluidity, keeping it supple, elastic, resilient. A proprietary blend of Hyaluronic Acid and Aqua Cell Complex (lentil, watermelon and apple extracts) loads and refills skin’s essential moisture reserves, for softer, smoother, plumper tone and texture.

I love the packaging. Powerball Intensive Moisturiser comes in a ball-shaped simple and sturdy packaging. The texture of this cream is super light, you can say it is silky cream. It does have lovely mild smell. The main aim of the Powerball is to fight against anti-ageing by keeping your skin most hydrated. Moisturiser is a must have the product in anyone’s skincare routine and especially if you have dry skin you need intensive moisturiser. I have been using this product since many weeks now and it is definitely keeping my skin more even and smooth and so hydrating. I apply it twice a day on my face. This hydrating moisturiser helps to defeat acute and chronic skin dehydration. While applying it on my face it gives cooling sensation to my skin. Which I love so much. It is really helping my dry skin to restore soft and smooth texture by leaving it plump and healthy.

This moisturiser feels so light on skin and instantly hydrates my skin. It is not greasy or oily at all. This cream is so perfect for colder months when your skin needs hydration boost. I also apply it before going to bed in night-time to give my skin enough moisture and when I get up in the morning visibly I can see the difference. My skin looks more revitalised, nourished and healthy. No dry patches on skin. This is one of the richest moisturiser I have ever used which instantly hydrates and moisturise my skin. Some of the moisturisers I have used they don’t give long-lasting result but this one does. This moisturiser sinks in instantly and gives wonderful plumping effect which last very long.

If you are looking for product that hydrate your skin then this is definitely the product you must try. It has amazing moisturising properties and they are so powerful. This product is perfect for dry or dehydrated skin. If you have combination/oily skin then you can use it during night-time. So what do you think about Time Bomb Powerball Intensive Moisturiser? Which is your favourite moisturiser when it comes to hydrate skin?

JOIK Shimmering Raspberry Body Lotion Review


Today I am going to review JOIK Shimmering Raspberry Body Lotion which I have been sent very kindly to try and review on my blog. This is first time ever I have tried shimmering body lotion and you know I just loved it! This shimmering body lotion is just amazing. JOIK is quite new brand to me and I have not tried any of their products earlier so when I was given chance to try their products I was really excited. All JOIK products are hand-made in Estonia and most successful Estonian natural cosmetics brand. JOIK offers a wide range of products like Candles, Skincare, Bath and Body Care, Hair Care, Baby Products, Solid Perfumes and many more.

A little bit about JOIK…… JOIK story began in year 2005 and Eva Maria is founder of JOIK. The name JOIK comes from the word „joik“ – the ancient singing style of nature-loving Sami people. Joik is a unique form of cultural expression, conveying emotions and describing people, animals and nature. JOIK is Northern, pure and minimal style. Using nature to their best advantage, but also caring for nature. All the goodness from nature combined with luxurious emotions of scent and colour. JOIK is natural luxury. All their products are as natural as possible and caress the body with best ingredients, offering pleasure to mind and soul with beautiful design and excellent aromas.

JOIK Shimmering Raspberry Body Lotion comes in a simple and slim 150ml transparent bottle with a pump dispenser. This lotion retails for £14.00. It makes very easy when the body lotion has pump dispenser. The pump dispenser works very well and you can easily get the required amount. The bottle is transparent so you can easily see the quantity left. JOIK Shimmering raspberry body lotion is rich in sweet almond oil, shea butter and coconut oil that moisturise and pamper while natural minerals give the skin a delicate glow and shimmer. This quick absorbing lotion is perfect for either bringing out a tanned skin or giving pale skin a more even tone. Pleasantly scented with a delicious raspberry scent.

The consistency of this lotion is pretty liquid and glides smoothly on skin. This lotion feels very light on skin and not greasy at all. This lotion really moisturises my skin and adds a subtle glow to it. Once applied it gets quickly absorbed into the skin. It nourishes, hydrates, smooths and gives a nice healthy glow to your body. The shimmer particles in this lotion are really fine and create a pearlescent glow to the skin. It completely highlights your entire body and makes you look sexy while you sparkle under the sun. I love the berry scent of this lotion, it reminds me raspberry and strawberry milkshake. The smell of this body lotion lingers on skin for a long time. This shimmering body lotion you can also apply at night-time when you are out for a dinner or some party.

Overall I really enjoyed using JOIK Shimmering Raspberry Body Lotion and if you are fond of shimmers or shimmering products then you must try out this product. This shimmering body lotion is must have product for summer time to get the tan looking skin with bit shining. I would love to explore more of their products after trying this lotion.

Amie Skincare Light Hydrating Daily Moisturiser and Spring Clean Deep Cleansing Mask Review


Today I am going to review some Skincare products. It has been a while since I have done a Skincare review and I love anything that uses natural and plant-based ingredients. So I am going to review Amie Skincare products those have been sent to me very kindly to try and review on my blog.

Amie is the natural skin care and beauty range for sensitive skin, created by top beauty expert, Fiona Parkhouse. Bursting with natural plant and botanical extracts and free from harsh chemicals, Amie products are gentle yet super-effective. Ideal for sensitive skin that can be oily and prone to breakouts or dryness, they have been especially designed to work in complete harmony with your skin to help keep it clear, soft and radiant. Amie’s high-quality products are completely free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oils, petrochemicals, animal extracts and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

MORNING LIGHT Hydrating Daily Moisturiser 100ml – RRP £4.95

Amie’s MORNING LIGHT Hydrating Daily Moisturiser is a perfect blend of high-quality plant extracts and skin-friendly natural ingredients all designed to keep your skin soft and moisturised, all day long. Perfect for skin that is prone to dryness and in need of gentle, effective nourishment, this lightweight rose-scented lotion is easy to apply and absorbed quickly, giving skin long-lasting hydration.

Key natural extracts include:

Rosa Canina Fruit Oil –  Rosehip oil contains a list of active ingredients which are beneficial to skin, as well as a high level of essential fatty acids which help the skin hold moisture and reduce dryness.

Rosa Centifolia Flower Extract – an extract from the flowers of the Cabbage Rose, Rosa Centifolia has skin-conditioning and toning effects on the skin.

Malva Sylvestris Extract – the flowers of the mallow plant are well-known for their soothing and softening effect on the skin.

Amie’s Hydrating Daily Moisturiser comes in nice pink plastic squeezable tube with flip cap and sealed tightly so you can carry it in your handbag without worrying about any leakage. I really love the scent of it. It has very natural smell of rose. I have been using this product since two weeks on my face. I have combination and bit sensitive skin. The moisturiser is light, absorbs into the skin quickly, and doesn’t leave any residue or greasy feelings behind. I found this product to do a good job at moisturising.

Its natural and plant-based, with the use of rosehip and bilberry keeps my skin nourished and feels very soft and shine free, It is also perfect base for makeup and is great for people with sensitive skin. The moisturiser is easy to squeeze from the tube, pea-sized amount is sufficient for the face and neck. I am quite liking this moisturiser and it hydrates my skin and does not breakout. I am loving floral smell of this moisturiser, it is quite strong but I still love it. After 2 weeks of use I notice some difference in my skin and I would say I am going to use it more in coming days and also going to buy it again, once I finish this tube.

SPRING CLEAN Deep Cleansing Mask 100ml – £5.95

SPRING CLEAN Deep Cleansing Mask is a wonderfully refreshing deep-cleansing treatment that works pore-deep to draw out dirt and impurities while soaking up excess oil and helping prevent blemishes. Cools and refreshes leaving skin feeling really clear, clean and smooth. Helps keep pores clear, dermatologically tested, pH balanced.

How To Apply:

Smooth a fine layer over your face avoiding the delicate skin around the eye area.  Sit back, relax and allow to dry for 10 minutes.  Splash off with warm water and pat face dry.  For best results, use once or twice a week.

This is a really nice mask and one of my favourite mask ever. This is a white clay mask so it’s very deep cleansing and extremely purifying. It doesn’t dry to a rock hard finish so it’s not as uncomfortable as other clay masks. It has a bit of a strong peppermint scent, so I avoid the eye area when applying to keep them from watering.

This mask is a bit thick so I apply a thinner layer. Leave it on for 10 minutes to dry. After a minute or two, I start to feel a slight tingle to my skin. The mint causes a very cool sensation. It has a strong peppermint smell to it. I am not a huge fan of peppermint but the product itself is lovely. The product cools, tingles, and kind of stings the skin quite a bit. The mask harden about 5 minutes after application. It is easy to remove with warm water and your face still feels that cool sensation after the product has been removed. It left my skin feeling refreshed. This mask can be used once or twice a week and I definitely recommend it for some skin pampering.

Overall I am very happy with both products, they really work well. I would definitely recommend Amie Skincare to those who want natural skincare that isn’t harsh on the skin, affordable and readily available.

You can buy Amie Skincare products from their website, here.
