Don’t Let Your Skin Feel Old As Dirt: Try This!

In Beauty & Fashion, Reviews by Jen26 Comments

A few months ago my bratty beautiful seven year old daughter pointed out that I had bags under my eyes. Yes my sweet child perhaps if anyone EVER let me sleep in our house this wouldn’t be the case!

So yes, I realize that as I am nearing, but not yet approached the big “Four Oh” that my skin has lost some of it’s youthful glow with also a few “darkish” areas under my eyes.

Leaving me looking a tad bit like this….

So on a quest I went to find something to help. I was able to find several products that I am now totally hooked on and would like to share with you just in case you too are feeling as old as dirt, because….

First off, I found the InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask.

I LOVE this product and it really worked! It is made from Pure Dead Sea mud. It can help dry skin, fight blemishes, even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines. My teen daughter Samantha and I have both been using this once a week for several weeks now and both see a difference in our skin. Her’s with blemish protection and mine with my dry and blotchy skin.

When I was researching this product I even saw the following product benefit listed, “When used as a body treatment, the mud mask can soothe and relieve muscles aches and pains.” My husband fractured 3 bones in his foot a few weeks ago.

It is still really hurting him as he  continues to heal, so I thought why not put the mud mask on his foot and try it out. He did and the next day he told me that it felt better than it had in a long while. So it worked!

Here’s the second product I found, InstaNatural Advanced Action Retinol Moisturizer

This product was touted to do the following,Fight Wrinkles, Fine Lines & Hyperpigmentation – Vitamin A, along with Vitamin C and Green Tea, provide strong antioxidant power to fight against the signs of aging.”

I have tried this now for a month and I have noticed a huge difference. Having spent most of my life in Southern Arizona exposed to the sun, one just accepts that sun spots are going to be par for the course. I have been a rigorous sun screen user, but I still have a few spots I wish would go away. This moisturizer has really worked and helped to give a more even tone to my skin color. Hooray! Plus my laugh lines (we will not call them wrinkles) are looking less pronounced from my time using this product.

Lat but not least, the 3rd product I tried InstaNatural Age Defying Retinol Serum, 1 Fluid Ounce

This is a straight out shot of Retinol that will help to smooth & even your complexion plus supercharge your skin with powerful antioxidants and minerals. My skin prior to using this product was feeling like warped and bleached sandpaper, but the serum has helped to trap and keep the moisture in and I love that I can use this both day and night. The serum has a wonderful citrusy scent and I also like that it is a cruelty free product.

Now that my skin looks and feels better let’s see if I can work on this whole sleeping thing…


Stay Happy! Stay Informed!

  1. You’re a youngster. I’m in my 60s and I don’t want to talk about my skin. It just hangs everywhere. Bwahahahahahahah. I’ve earned all that hanging skin too.

    Have a fabulous day. :)

  2. Oh Jen! All three of these look great! I am heading to Amazon now! Thank you. I hate to say it, but I haven’t taken the best care of my skin. Last time I went to the dr. he said, “Oh, you have a lot of freckles.” Yep. So I said, “I guess I should be better about sunscreen.” and he responded, “Well, it’s a little late.” Uggh! Needless to say,not the best doctor experience. Thanks for the tips!

  3. I’m going to click on everything! So you can buy more than one donut. I’m that kind of blog reader.
    I’m intrigued by the first one. It just seems like an all-around good product to have at home to soothe problem skin and aches and pains.
    Hope Jensguy is feeling better!

      Well thank you! I feel so sorry for the poor guy. His foot cannot be casted and it just hurts all day long when he walks around on it. He has a big and heavy medical boot to wear, but that just help mess up his back and other foot. I am going to keep putting that mud on see if we can’t get this thing fixed right quick!

  4. Wow Jen thanks so much for sharing about these products. They look really good and that is amazing that you tried the product on your husband and he felt better! I love when I learn about new products.

  5. I should totally try that mask – I have one little patch of dry skin that I seriously cannot seem to get a handle on. But who am I kidding? I need to work on the luggage under my eyes first! :)

      The luggage?!! Oh let’s pray the 7 year old never asks me about that at the store some day, very loudly!!

      I had this spot of dry skin on my nose that just wouldn’t budge. It’s nothing harmful as I had the Dr. check it out, but it was dang annoying! This worked to take care of it and now I don’t look like I have boogers smeared all over the top of my nose!

  6. Hi Jen, fell off the radar for a bit and have I got a lot of reading to do!

    I started to notice that my skin was looking tired when my 15 year old daughter started popping up beside me as I applied make up or cleaned my face. Compared to her youthful glow I look positively old and wrinkly. Have you noticed how people without children don’t look as tired or haggard? I wonder why?

    I go through fazes of using face masks and always feel better for using them (so why is it that I don’t use them religiously?…No idea!). That Dead Sea mud mask looks and sounds the business.

    Imagine being able to go to bed and wake up with a face beautifully made up! The future…

      I know next to our glowing beautiful daughters we do look old and haggard! Come to think of it, it is probably at least partially their fault for the haggardness. I tell my kids my gray hair came after being a mother :)

      No worries about falling off the radar, we have to do that at times to stay sane and focus on other things. Hope you and the family are well!
