Review: InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil & Youth Express Eye Gel

*Disclosure* I received  both products complimentary for review purposes. All opinion are 100% honest and my own, like always!

Hey everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing two skincare products that I was sent to try out and review. If you know me or have read my blog for any length of time, you know I'm a skincare junkie. I love trying out new products and now that I'm 25, I feel like my skincare is starting to change a little bit. Anyway, this is my review of the InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil and the Youth Express Eye Gel.

I'm surprised I like the Deep Cleansing Facial Oil as much as I do! This product is made with organic and natural ingredients such as jojoba oil, olive oil, lavender essential oil, pink grapefruit essential oil, tamanu oil, hemp oil, sea buckthorn oil and geranium essential oil. That's definitely a good amount of different oils, which I was unsure about at first since I do have very oily skin. However, when I pumped out some product (a good 5 to 7 pumps) and started rubbing it on my face, I was impressed by how fast it broke down my makeup. I even used it on my eyes when I had full on eyeshadow and mascara going, and it took that off really well! I do follow up with my normal cleanser and I've been pleased with the results I've been having so far. On Amazon this product typically retails for $49.95, but as of today (September 10th) it's on sale for $19.95! Not a bad price considering how much product you get. 

The Youth Express Eye Gel is interesting. Again, this product is made with organic and natural ingredients such as plant stem cells, Matrixyl 3000 and hyaluronic acid. It's also paraben, sulfate and alcohol free! When I used this for the first time, I put it all around my eyes including my lids and also in between my eyebrows. I immediately got this cooling sensation that I love lately with the warm weather we've been having. This product is supposed to help with puffiness, which I don't particularly have, but there is also a tightening effect so I can see it working. It's also supposed to help diminish the look of dark circles, which to be honest, I haven't noticed much of a difference. Mine are hereditary though so I doubt anything will work miracles for me in that department. Now this eye gel typically retails for $89.99 on Amazon but it's currently on sale for only $21.95! To me, that's an insane price when you get almost 2 ounces of product here and a little bit goes a very long way. 

Overall, I'm very happy with these products! Would I purchase them myself? I'd definitely purchase the facial oil because I'm just shocked that it actually works on my oily skin. I'd have to give the eye gel more time for me to make a decision. Products like that tend to take time for me to decide whether or not I'd buy it again. 

What do you think of these products?

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


  1. I love using cleansing oils and balms to remove makeup. It feels so luxurious and comforting.

    1. I'm starting to enjoy it more! I may keep it up especially in the Winter time
