InstaNatural Products review

IMG_9847.PNG

I was given the opportunity to try 3 products from InstaNatural.

100% pure ultra premium Emu Oil
$39.99
Check it out on amazon here
I’ve never tried or heard of Emu Oil before. It’s a multipurpose moisturizer for hair, nails, skin, & face.
•It’s good for hair growth, stretch marks , muscle & joint pain.
•reduces dryness, redness, itching, marks, and soothes sunburn.
•no added chemicals or preservatives
The consistency is a little thinner than a gel and a little goes a long way. It absorbs nicely leaving your skin soft, plump , and healthy looking. It has a pump so it’s easy to use .
I’ve been using it on my cuticles and skin and I love how my skin feels.

Dead Sea mud mask $25.95 16oz jar
Check out on amazon here

IMG_9970.JPG

•skin cleanser, pore reducer , natural moisturizer
•helps dry and oily skin , acne, blemishes, & overall complexion
•reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
•leaves skin younger & healthier looking
•removes excess dirt, grime, oil, & dead skin
•100% natural
•cruelty free
•made in USA
•manufacturer guarantee
•nourishing blend of organic shea butter , organic jojoba oil, organic aloe Vera and more great beneficial ingredients for great skin.
•can be used on body too

It has a good consistency , spreads easily on skin, feels cool when applying, no scent. I experienced a bit of itchiness while it dried but it wasn’t irritating . I just kept thinking its pulling toxins from my skin. After washing it off my face my skin was a little pink. My face felt really soft afterwards. While I liked the benefits and how it left my skin , I dont think I’d get it in the future because of the slight itchiness and pink/redness afterwards (even though it went back to normal in about 10 min)

Once a week apply a thin layer and keep it on for 10-15 minutes until dry. Wash off in circular motions with warm water. It’s that easy to keep you skin looking good and blemish free.

Argan Oil hair mask $17.95
check it out on amazon here

IMG_9968.JPG

•Contains natural & organic ingredients like Argan oil, amino acid complex, coconut oil, Shea butter, vitamin B5, jojoba oil, avocado oil, and more

•repairs damaged hair

•Leaves hair soft , shiny , and manageable

•Strengthens & protects from excessive heat and styling.

• Made in the USA

Out of the 3 products , this one is my favorite. It left my hair soft, silky, manageable , and shiny. It also smells great! It’s not strong , it sort of reminds me of an creamsicle. It’s nice to get a whiff during the day.
It’s easy to use , you can use it daily or weekly. I like that it’s chemical free and has natural ingredients. You leave it on 5-15 minutes then rinse off. I’d definitely recommend this one.
The only thing I wish was different was the container. I wish it was in a tube or pump rather than a tub.

I ate them as a snack/dessert , over my banana pancakes , or topped off my oatmeal with the kettle cooked apples.
You could also mix in with yogurt , put on waffles, ice cream, or maybe on top of a salad. They are so versatile!

They satisfy that need for something sweet but don’t have to feel guilty because they are healthy.

All the flavors were good. My favorites were cinnamon French toast that I had with oatmeal, it actually tasted like french toast but no mess to clean up & banana mango & hemp seed .My least favorite was boysenberry chocolate .

My thoughts on this product :
First off I really like the packaging . It’s cute ,eye-catching , easy to carry, easy to open.
I like that I can take these on the go. Just tear open, grab a fork, and enjoy. (Or as a topping)
I am always looking for healthy snacks that I can take with me and these are perfect. The fact that they are naturally sweetened is a plus for me . I like that I don’t have to use sugary syrups on top of pancakes or oatmeal anymore plus I get to enjoy yummy fruit with it too.
I’m kind of bummed my Target doesn’t sell these yet because I really enjoyed these pouches.

In case you want to make banana pancakes:

Kiss InstaWave review.. curling your hair just got easier

I was given the opportunity to try out Kiss InstaWave automatic curler. I’ve seen this on tv and I’m sure you might have to. I’ve always wondered how it would work out and if it really was that easy. My hair is slighty wavy and thick, I have a LOT of hair. I always thought if I tried this product it would get tangled in my hair or something. Thankfully that didn’t happen when I curled my hair with Kiss InstaWave.

Retails for : $59.99

Can be found at : Target , Ulta , Amazon

* * * A little more about the InstaWave curler * * *

IMG_9839.JPG

Power indicator light red is still getting to the temperature and blue you’re ready to curl.
Auto shut off after 90 minutes for safety

IMG_9880.JPG

It has a low & high setting.
Professional grade temp. 420F max
Diamond ceramic technology for shiny styling results.
Ceramic Ionic technology to reduce frizz and damage.
Can curl left or right
swivel cord
Design allows you to use curler in either hand.

Besides keeping it vertical I like that the prongs help not get to close so you won’t burn yourself.

CURLING

It takes a couple of tries to get it down and get used to it but once you do its a breeze. No need to be a pro or go to a salon.

Guide to instant curls :

IMG_9891.JPG
-Take 1-2 inch section of hair . Hold curler vertical and place section of hair into inside prong mid way through the section of hair.
-Click the button rotating the barrel to begin curling.

– Press button until hair is fully around barrel.

-Wait 5-10 seconds depending on how loose or tight you want your curls.

-Pull curler straight down. Tada you have a curl

I did a quick video here
or you can check out their video on there website http://www.kissinstawave.com/


Here is a look I did using the Kiss InstaWave automatic curler

IMG_9449.JPG

Final Thoughts:

I really liked using this curler, I’m glad I was able to try it. As I mentioned above I have a lot of hair which is slightly textured and thick.
When I use a normal curler it takes awhile to curl and my the end my arm is so sore. I like that the Kiss InstaWave does most of the work for you and I can still feel my arm afterwards. I also was glad that it did not get stuck or tangle my hair which was one of my concerns. Its really easy can pretty much be done with one hand. The only “con” which isn’t even a big deal is it has a buzzing sound when plugged in , the company said it is completely safe. It is caused by the circuit to drive the motor.
I give this product 2 thumbs up. If you know someone who loves to do their hair this would be a nice gift. If you are planning to curl your hair this holiday season this would be perfect, since it cuts some time and is so easy.

Do you curl you hair for the holidays? or Have you tried an automatic curler before? How did you like it?

My Black Friday steals

I did my black friday shopping from the comfort of my home.

I needed boots until I can find ones I really love. I saw these at Target last week. They had buy 1 , get 1 50% off which is why I looked. I couldn’t find a second pair I liked, sometimes having big feet (size 11) you have slim pickings.

These were $39.99 but on sale for $31.99 and I was able to pick them up the next day at the store (even though there is free shipping).
Technically you could say these were FREE since in used a gift card I earned redeeming points from Club Skinny.

Next I saw that Amazon had a deal on an HP chromebook for $149.99
I used my earnings from Crowdtap for this, so no money out of pocket.

I think I did pretty well 🙂

Did you get anything on Black Friday?
