Instanatural 100% Emu Oil Product Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


One of the latest products that I was able to try out for free was Instanatural's 100% Emu Oil for face, hair, stretch marks, etc.

My Thoughts On This Product:


Shipping was very quick and it was very well wrapped in bubble wrap and arrived in one piece.



I'm going to tell you the truth--when I read that it was Emu Oil, I was really nervous to try it out. I kept thinking about chickens and their fat. I kept thinking that it was going to be gross and sticky, and smell really bad, like what I would imagine any animal oil to be.

I couldn't have been more wrong.

The oil is a pale whitish, milky color, and it actually doesn't smell like anything to me. You can pump a little bit out of the bottle.  Guess what? The lid is a black pump. It doesn't pour right out, which is good. You don't want to spill it. You also don't need to use much! 
I washed my hair and massaged a little bit of this oil into it while it was still damp. I let it air dry. I was happy because normally most of the oils that I have tried in my hair are somewhat thick, greasy, have a scent, and are heavy, but this oil is actually pretty light. My hair feels soft and not greasy at all. BUT, of course, I only put a little bit at a time. It makes my curls feel a bit feathery- which I like. (Haha, I swear that is not meant to be a pun.)
I've also been using this oil on my elbows because they tend to dry out a lot and it has definitely helped my skin be less dry. Again, I only apply a little bit. One pump or two in my hand and I rub it in my palms and apply to my elbows and arms.

I finally used this emu oil on my face and it moisturizes so well. It doesn't feel greasy or oily either. Just use a little bit if you do this though. And give it time for your skin to absorb it before applying any makeup, if you do.

I'm happy with the product and yes I recommend for hair and skin. I have yet to see if it will work on stretch marks. Mine haven't entirely disappeared since my pregnancy with my son. It might help since it does help moisturize the skin and is good with restoring skin elasticity.
