Insta Natural Youth Express Vitamin C Moisturizer Review

I HAVE to use a moisturizer under my makeup.  Even if I forget to use a moisturizer at night, it has become habit to use a moisturizer under my makeup.  I love the way makeup glides on more easily with the right moisturizer underneath.  I prefer a lotion moisturizer for those times that I'm "putting on my face."  This Insta Natural Youth Express Vitamin C Moisturizer fits the bill perfectly.  The last moisturizer I had was way too scented.  I actually felt bad putting it on because I wondered what kind of chemical concoction it was!

**I received this Insta Natural Youth Express Vitamin C Moisturizer for free or highly discounted in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions are 100% mine.**

I've got to say, the bottle and label seem pretty basic.  BUT, that's not what counts, right?  It's what's on the inside that counts.  Here is what this moisturizer has on the inside.  The key ingredients are:

20% Vitamin C
5% Niacinamide
5% Hyaluronic Acid
Plant Stem Cells
Peptide Complex
MSM (it's in so many products I finally looked up what it was~~an organic form of sulfur, which is supposed to have amazing health benefits)

It also has organic aloe vera, organic safflower oil, Wakame Bioferment (a unique active from a species of seaweed that repairs environmental damage), shea butter, organic jojoba oil, organic gotu kola, and organic green tea. . . . among other ingredients.

The ingredients are combined to help erase signs of aging like spots, skin discoloration and fine lines.  

The moisturizer is a white lotion/cream which can be used on your face or body.  It comes in a bottle with a huge pump top.

 It's easy to pump and get the perfect amount of lotion.  It doesn't absorb immediately. It does take some time for me to rub it in, but after it's absorbed, my skin is soft.

I had some breakouts in the beginning when I was using it, but I don't know if the breakouts were caused by the moisturizer or something else I was doing.  It's all good now, though.

As I said earlier, I love to use this under my makeup.  Once it's absorbed, it makes a great base for makeup.  The makeup goes on beautifully over this moisturizer.  There is absolutely no peeling, flaking or gunking up.  . . . . just beautiful, flawlesss makeup application.

This lotion has an AHA in it, so it's recommended that you use a sunscreen while using it and up to a week after you stop using it.  (I don't know why you'd stop using it though!)  It also says that if you have sensitive skin, to use it only once a day.  I haven't had any issues using it twice a day, though.  I've been using it morning and night and love it.

I truthfully have never heard of Insta Natural before trying this moisturizer, but I think I'd like to see some of their other products!  Have you ever tried anything from Insta Natural before?
