Jillian Wright Skincare- Acne Serum Review

I was so excited when I was approached to try this product. I have been fighting with hormonal acne for months, especially in my chin area, along with the folds of my neck.

This serum was a lifesaver. Let’s see what it is all about!photo 4 (91)

From the website:

“A non-irritating, non-drying and brightening all over facial clearing serum that helps to control bacteria and reduce redness without harmful medicated ingredients, yet acting similar to an anti-inflammatory or antibacterial products.

HOW TO USE

Shake well. Use day and/or night, after you cleanse or exfoliate and underneath or moisturizer.

*All skin types can use the Breakout Blocker but if you have oily skin, it is best used under the Jillian Wright Mattefying Moisturize Lotion or the Mattefying Moisture Gel.  You can use it all over, or on the spot, leaving it on.  Can also be used with LED light, preferably Blue light.

WHY YOU SHOULD USE IT

Acne is a chronic skin disease that is challenging to control.  The bacteria cocktail is fueled by lifestyle choices such as diet (fast food, excessive sugar, salt, alcohol, dairy, and lack of water) environment, lack of sleep or exercise, hormonal fluctuations and genetics.  It’s a combination of dead skin cells, oil, bacteria and sweat that gets lodged in the pore or hair follicle that creates a sludgy consistency that causes irritation, inflammation and ultimately, the dysfunction of the skin.”

Ingredient:

Aqua (Water), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Lactobacillus Ferment, Alcohol Denat., Alcohol, Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine, Glycerin, Ethoxydiglycol, Planktonic Exopolysaccharide 5, Polygylceryl-4 Caprate, Gluconolactone, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxycinnamic Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Phytosphingosine, Dipropylene Gylcol, Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract (Huang Qi), Phytic Acid, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Lecithin, Phenoxyethanol, Lysophosphatidic Acid, Lysolecithin, Pelargoium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil*

This serum is WONDERFUL! From the first use, I could tell a difference in my skin. It soothed redness almost instantly. When mixed with my daily moisturizer, it helped control oil, and blemishes. I found that if I had a breakout, I would apply it full strength directly to the area, and it would clear the spots up much faster. I just loved how it made my skin feel, period.

Another thing I love about it, is the packaging.jillianwrightAll of her boxes are embedded with wildflower seeds. All you have to do is plant the box, and in a few weeks you have FLOWERS! I am saving my box for the spring, and I cannot wait to see what I get.

All in all, I would highly recommend this product to anyone with acne, sensitive skin or just skin that is irritated. The calming effects alone, make it worth its weight in gold!

InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil- Review

I was given the opportunity to try InstaNatural facial oil. I was a little nervous at first, because I tend to have oily skin during the summer. I am so glad I did!

Lets check it out!

  • “NATURAL & ORGANIC ✸ Our Facial Oil Cleanser is made with natural ingredients, such as Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Essential Oils, Tamanu Oil, Hemp Oil, and more.
  • WORKS FAST ✸ Massage onto skin to gently and effectively remove dirt, impurities and makeup.
  • GENTLE INGREDIENTS ✸ Our nonabrasive facial wash contains many key active ingredients that work to clean your face and pores without stripping the skin of its natural oils.
  • POWERFUL RESULTS ✸ Strong enough to be used as a makeup remover – can even tackle eye liner and mascara!”oilI decided to use it as my nighttime cleanser, so I could wash off excess oil in the morning if necessary. I used a cotton ball, and applied it generously to my face. It melted my makeup off like butter! I wound up using 2 cotton balls and going over it twice, but it cut right through my foundation, blush and powder. ( I didn’t use it on my eyes, I wimped out on that.)

The second step is to take a warm washcloth and wipe the oil off, along with the excess makeup. I used a piping hot washcloth, because I’m just a daredevil that way. Anyhow, it took off every trace of my makeup, and my skin felt so soft and smooth, not oily at all.  It wasn’t even oily when I woke up!

I have been using this for about a week now, and I truly love it! I love how my face feels, and I like the idea of knowing that all of my makeup is gone when I go to sleep at night. This product is a definite keeper!

 
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles.

In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin. 

***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C’s effect on the skin. 

Organic Rosehip Seed Oil & Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend – Vitamin C

Resistem (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.

Hyaluronic Acid (Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion

Green Tea Extact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.”serum
The first thing I noticed about this serum was the smell. It has a distinct, citrus smell, from the Grapefruit essential oils. The serum is light, and fresh. It only take a small amount, and it soaks right in. I noticed my skin felt so soft and smooth after application. After using it for about two weeks, I noticed a slight brightening effect, and a definite change in one of my acne scars, that I have been frustrated over.

As I have gotten older, I have noticed definite changes in my skin, and not for the good. I am hoping that with continued use of this product, it make a huge turn around!
