Hyaluronic Acid Serum by InstaNatural - £13.97 via Amazon

I mentioned a couple of months ago in my January Favourites that my Vitamin E serum from The Body Shop had run out and left my skin a bit lacking, however as I'd just started using the Glycolic Fix pads from Nip + Fab I wasn't feeling all that pressured to find something to replace it. When that little pot of gorgeousness was empty I noticed a real deterioration in my skin's texture, hydration and firmness - so the hunt began.

I can't remember exactly who's blog I first saw the Hyaluronic Acid serum by InstaNatural on however after checking out a few reviews (and seeing that it was on offer on Amazon) I decided it was worth a try. Just a couple of days later this arrived and I've been using it twice a day for roughly three weeks now.

The serum itself is packaged in a small blue bottle with a clear list of the instructions and ingredients on the outside - pretty simple. It also highlights their cruelty free status with the Leaping Bunny logo. The bottle has a small pipette embedded in the lid which is used to dispense the product for application. Although not overwhelming, there is a noticeable scent to the serum, which I actually find quite nice! I think it's a combination of the Green Tea and the Jojoba Oil but I'm not entirely certain. It's a little bit floral with a slightly spicy, warm undertone. Once applied the scent doesn't linger for long, which I know will be a plus for some people.

After a few weeks of using this I've noticed a real difference to my skin's level of hydration. It's not an instant miracle worker like I found the Nip + Fab pads to be however with continued consistent application there has been a considerable amount of change in the appearance of my skin. I feel like my make up is applying a lot better than before and my pesky dry patches are much less visible. The overall texture of my skin feels a lot nicer - always a good thing!

Once applied the serum does feel a bit sticky on the skin however it sinks in very quickly and doesn't take too long to dry. I use this in between my toner and moisturiser twice a day, but on nights where I've forgotten my moisturiser (this happens more than I'd care to admit) I do find my face feeling quite tight.

Overall I think this serum is a total bargain piece of skincare that certainly won't break the bank. It's a slow worker, but it's a hard worker. I'd never heard much about the InstaNatural brand before but will definitely be checking more of their products out in the future!

You can buy this on Amazon here.
