Instanatural Rosehip Oil and Vitamin C Serum Review

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


Two of the latest products that I was given to try out were Instanatural's Rosehip Oil and Vitamin C Serum.





Shipping was fast, both items I received were bubble wrapped very well and in perfect condition.



Vitamin C Serum

Product Details:


  • Contains Vitamin C 20% and Vitamin E, Organic Aloe, Hyaluronic and Ferulic Acid
  • Helps reduce signs of aging- wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, sun damaged skin, and fine lines
  • Hydrates dry skin
  • Has a dropper lid so that you can control the amount of drops that you use


Some Notes From The Company:
  • Always apply InstaNatural's Vitamin C E Ferulic Serum to a clean face and neck.
  • Wash your face and neck with a mild soap. You can also use a cleanser or a face wash.
  • Use lukewarm water to wash off the soap/cleanser/face wash.
  • Apply the serum on face and neck when still damp.
  • To apply, put a few drops of serum on fingertips, rub them together and then gently massage it into the skin.
  • Wait for a few minutes. Let the serum soak into the skin completely.
  • Apply your regular moisturizer on top of it.
  • Use the serum at least two times a day for better results. It can be used more often, if needed.
  • Once you open the serum, be sure to close properly and that you store in a cool dark place, away from light. This will preserve the efficacy of Vitamin C Serum.
My Thoughts on This Product:

I cannot express how much I love Vitamin C Serum. It is the one product that I have been using off and on the last couple of months and have really seen and felt results on my face. My skin feels softer, clearer, younger, firmer, and looks better. My husband and my mom have both told me that they've noticed a different in my skin. You see, normally I have discoloration, some spotting, and acne on my skin. Now it doesn't completely rid my face of acne-I use other products to keep that in control, but it does help with a lot of other things. I normally have dry areas on my face and those are gone because of this great product. The fine lines are my forehead are more faint than before.
I really wish that these bottles of Vitamin C Serum were bigger because then they would last longer for me. I'm always sad when my bottle is almost gone. Oh yeah, another thing that I love is that the lid has a dropper so you can drip a small amount onto your fingers and rub onto your face. (Make sure your face is thoroughly cleansed before applying this.) I use it once in the morning after my shower, and before I put any makeup on---I replaced my moisturizer with this because it is an oil and keeps my face moisturized all day. Then I use it after my shower at night before I go to bed.

A quick note--if you break out easily, this type of oil may or may not be beneficial to your skin. Make sure you test it out on a small area first. Also, you really only need to use a few drops on your face.

Extremely happy with this product. Wish I had a lifetime supply!

Some notes from the Company:

  • Massage it gently into the skin till absorbed completely.
  • It can also be used with your favorite moisturizer or cream. Just mix a few drops of Rosehip Oil with your moisturizer and apply as usual.
  • For hair and scalp, massage a few drops with fingertips. You may also use Rosehip as part of your hot oil therapy. Just include a few drops of Rosehip oil in your hoit oil mixture (coconut oil, argan oil, etc.). Finally, try adding few drops of Rosehip oil to your favorite conditioner to give your hair an extra boost in nutrients.
  • Massage a few drops on nails and cuticles.
  • Keep your bottle of Rosehip Seed Oil refrigerated and away from light to extend shelf life.
  • If any irritation or redness occurs after using the product, discontinue use and consult your doctor.
  • Please note that Rosehip oil is not recommended as a facial moisturizer on very acne prone skin, because it may worsen the condition, but it can be applied liberally all over the body.
  • If you've never used Rosehip Oil before, please note that Pure Rosehip Oil does not carry any rose fragrance as the oil is extracted from the seeds or fruits and not from the petals which contain the aromatic molecules.
  • Unrefined Rosehip Oil (Purest Rosehip Oil, with nothing taken away) should always have a very characteristic smell, having a sort of warm and earthy tone: pleasant or unpleasant depending on your taste. There should also be some fishiness to the scent, as is the case due to the high contents of omega fatty acids. This scent dissipates after a few minutes. 


My Thoughts on This Product:

I've heard of Rosehip oil in the past but this is the first time that I've actually had the opportunity to use it myself. It can be used on skin, hair, scars, stretch marks, nails, and more. Since I use Instanatural's Vitamin C Serum on my face and something else on my hair, I decided to try the Rosehip Oil on my dry heels, toenails, and knees.

I walk around barefoot a lot so my heels get really dried out and cracked. It's embarrassing and just looks bad. I really want to wear my sandals and flip flops this summer so I wanted to make sure that my feet look better before I head to the beach. Several days ago, I started rubbing a few drops of this oil on my heels and massaging it all over my feet. I've noticed a huge improvement in the condition of my feet. My toenails even look better.My feet may not be completely crack free, but they are looking better everyday. I'm thinking that by the time I'm ready to head to the beach, my feet will look so nice. Since it seems to be working well on my dry feet, I've also been using it on my knees and legs since it's pretty hot out and I want to be able to wear shorts and skirts without being worried about my dry, ashy legs. 
I really like this product. It doesn't have much of a scent. It comes in a good sized 4 oz bottle. It's an all natural product with no fillers---great :) It's rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids.

I love the dropper lid, so that I can control the flow of the drops that I want to use. You really don't need much. 
I also plan on eventually using it on my stretch marks.

Oh yeah, a quick note---if you are using this oil on your feet as well, make sure to be very careful if you're not walking on carpet. It can make the floor very slippery. Rub it into your skin and let it absorb. I put socks on my oiled feet when I go to bed so that I won't get it on the blankets when they're still wet and also because I think it helps lock in the moisture better on my skin.

I store it in my fridge so that it will last longer. It also feels nice and cool when I apply it. 

Very happy with this product!
