Vitamin C Moisturizer

I have been converting to Instantaural, because I have been so impressed with their products. I am thrilled to be working with Instanatural on this campaign in exchange for a free product.

I have always struggled with finding a decent, nourishing, vitamin packed. clean-feeling facial moisturizer. I look for certain ingrediants, like vitamins and repairing ingrediants and stuff I seem to find in drug stores always seems to be the same and I just end up wasting my money and get another ineffective product that ends up getting thrown away. It is frustrating to have skin problems and just never find a product to help you.

InstaNatural’s Vitamin C Moisturizer contains a proprietary blend of supercharged antioxidants and other powerful ingredients that help you achieve youthful-looking skin. Vitamin C is a well-known antioxidant agent that fights free radicals in the environment to help protect your skin from the damaging effects of sun exposure and ultraviolet radiation. Constant exposure to such harmful elements can contribute to signs of aging such as wrinkles, age spots, discoloration and dryness. Applying our moisturizer will deliver a potent 20% dose of Vitamin C to your skin, along with other nourishing ingredients – such as Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Plant Stem Cells – that work together to repair existing, damaged skin and restore a healthier, even skin tone. Our moisturizing cream is a great way to enhance antioxidant protection to brighten and nurture skin for a healthy, glowing appearance.

Key Ingredients:
+ 20% Vitamin C
+ 5% Niacinamide
+ 5% Hyaluronic Acid
+ Plant Stem Cells
+ Peptide Complex

The product itself feels clean and light. It absorbs into your skin and doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. It doesn’t really smell like anything, which I like.

I would definitely recommend this product.

Book Review: The Woman Who Would Be King


If you have never heard of Hatshepsut. I am sorry. I am truly, truly sorry.

Hatshepsut ruled Egypt for 22 years-not as a Queen, but as a Pharaoh.  Her memory was erased from history by an angry relative. We all have heard of Cleopatra, but never about Hatshepsut.

Whenever I hear about this amazing woman who ruled Ancient Egypt, I just get chills.

Here is Kara Cooney, Author of The Woman Who Would Be King talking about Hatshepsut:

I am greatly enjoying this book. The author clearly loves and respects Hatshepsut. I am completely hooked. A single lovingly written and well-researched book is hardly enough to remember this incredible ancient ruler. But it is a start.

Some have criticized the book as being a bit over-romanticized, and I can see where they would get that, but I enjoy this book very much.

I would recommend this to anyone who loves history or historical fiction.

<img style=”display:none;” src=”″/&gt;

Once again InstaNatural has delivered another great skin care product.

The ingredients in this serum create a great formula that feels great on your skin.  I am always searching for fantastic face and skin care products and I highly recommend InstaNatural Products.

InstaNatural’s Age-Defying Retinol Serum contains a proprietary blend of antioxidants and nutrients that nourishes your skin while helping it to look younger and healthier. The serum contains Retinol (Vitamin A), which is an antioxidant that protects against free-radical damage that causes your skin to look and feel older. It is highly effective in reversing the appearance of sun damage and signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and rough texture. Vitamin C works synergistically to aid in this process of repairing and restoring damaged skin, while also stimulating new healthy skin to appear. Meanwhile, Hyaluronic Acid traps moisture in the skin to prevent further loss so you can enjoy a younger looking appearance with firmer, plumper skin.

Key Ingredients:
+ 2.5% Retinol
+ 20% Vitamin C
+ 10% Hyaluronic Acid
+ Plant & Fruit Acids

Retinol Moisturizer


While I am still pretty young, I am always looking for ways to improve my skin and age as gracefully as possible.

I have worked with Instanatural and am always impressed with their products. I am happy to be working with them once again on this sponsored post, where I will give an honest review in exchange for an free sample.

InstaNatural’s Retinol Moisturizer contains a robust formula of handpicked ingredients designed to transform older, damaged skin into a healthier and youthful appearance. Retinol is a powerful antioxidant derived from Vitamin A, one of the strongest and most trusted ingredients for anti-aging skin care. Once absorbed, Retinol is converted into Retinoic Acid, which starts working to help restore skin and diminish the appearance of sun damage and signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, hyperpigmentation, rough texture, and more. Vitamin C – another powerful antioxidant – works synergistically to aid in this process of battling early signs of aging, as well as repairing existing damage to promote healthier skin. Simultaneously, Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Green Tea deliver premium nourishment and hydration to keep your skin moisturized.

This intensive moisturizing cream is the perfect addition to your regimen to restore and renew firmness, elasticity and thickness of the skin for a flawless and radiant complexion.
This is a list of the  Key Ingredients:
+ 2.5% Retinol
+ Vitamin C
+ Hyaluronic Acid
+ Jojoba Oil
+ Shea Butter
+ Green Tea

I always look for jojba oil vitamins, and shea butter, the green tea is a bonus.

I am unfamiliar with retinol but based on my reading and research I have done, I am excited to use these products.

I think finding a great facial moisturizer is a herculean task, and Insta Natural has made it much easier!

Old Fashioned Way

I consider myself a very old-fashioned person, so I was intrigued by the book The Old-Fashioned Way: Reclaiming the Lost Art of Romance, and elected to a sponsored post.

I have to say, I found this book a little confusing at times: from the title, I figured it was like a self-help kind of book, but it was also inspired by a film called Old Fashioned and is also in part a forty day journal.

When the writing was good, it was really great. However, sometimes I found the book to go in different directions and draw on extreme examples of human interactions.

I am afraid this wasn’t my favorite book I have ever read, but please feel free to use your own judgment.
