Age-Defying Retinol Serum with Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, and Plant Acids and Retinol Moisturizer with Vitamin C Review

Hey Gals! I've got another sponsored post from Instanaturals! These two formulas are similar to the previously reviewed ones. However this one has a 2.5% solution of retinol as well! I wanted to give the other formulas posted previously a full 6-8 weeks before trying these out. So I can say I haven't personally tried these yet but I do look forward to doing so. 

I decided since  the formulas are very similar I wouldn't be going over all the ingredients and photos of texture. But hopefully I can give you some info on deciding between the two formulations. Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A. Its known to decrease dark spots and soften up fine lines. If you're 25 and under these most likely aren't concerns for you. If you are 26 and up these may be things  you are looking to slow down or reverse. 

Retinol plays well with -most- skin products. However using retinol with benzoyl peroxide or Glycolic acid will inactivate the retinol. Also its important to point out if you use products with salicylic acid then you should be extra careful when considering retinol products, because combining the two can cause irritation.
