Latest skincare obsession! (ft. Instanatural)


Hello beautiful!

Do you want to know how to keep your skin and hair in prime condition? Of course you do! These two areas of the body are the first signs of age in our appearance and it is important to use the proper products to maintain healthiness in them. I've recently become obsessed with the brand Instanatural and all the products they have to offer. 


Instanatural is an all natural skincare brand that uses high quality, natural ingredients and offers their products online at very affordable prices (like a dream right?!) That's one of the main reasons why I love this brand. Yes, their pricing is very kind to my wallet, but the fact that they don't use harsh chemicals, alcohols, parabens, and sulfates makes it even better! You need to know what you are putting on your skin. And Instanatural makes you feel secure because you know exactly what is inside each product.

A few of my favorite products include (in no particular order):

Their Vitamin C Serum smells so fresh and citrusy! I love applying this before my moisturizer and I noticed that it helps fade acne scars, dark spots, unevenness, and dullness! The medicine-dropper container is so convenient and looks super cute!

$16.97





Bye-Bye dark under-eyes! This product goes on so smoothly, making applying concealer not a hassle! The ingredients don't irritate my eyes, and it instantly depuffs my eyes! This is perfect when I don't want to show up to an event or even class looking like a zombie! I like to store this in the fridge (not freezer!!) to give it an extra cooling effect!

$19.97







This is by FAR one of my favorite products ever. I wish I could lay in a bathtub full of this super soft cream! It has a lovely smell, I can't seem to describe it! It's amazing for dry areas, but I use this on my thighs, especially when I wear shorts. I don't get that rough "thigh rub" feeling. It feels oh so soft and gives me "baby soft" skin!

$24.95



I like to treat myself to "spa days". I use this product about once a week especially during these "spa days" because it gives my skin an amazing cleanse and detoxifies it from all the harsh chemicals that I use all the time (like makeup, and exposure to the environment) I love how it's 100% natural The consistency is not like any that I've tried! It's like a gel almost! Great for acne-prone skin, or super dirty skin! Not to mention, the tub is huge!!!  $29.75


All of their products can be purchased on Amazon! This is very convenient for those who want a one stop shop or have amazon prime and can receive free 2-day shipping! If not, you can always purchase their products from their website: www.instanatural.com . They are so nice and offer FREE SHIPPING on orders $25+


They have so many other products on their website and I have tried so many of them! All of them have given me a positive review on their company. Trust me, GO AND CHECK THEM OUT! You will love these products, and PLEASE let me know if you try any of their products and have any other recommendations. I haven't tried all of their products out so I am always looking for some new favorites!

Until Next Time,
xoxo
Vanessa

HEALTHY GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE that actually TASTES GOOD (ft. Sari Foods)

Hello everyone!

I know what you're thinking, "EW GREEN JUICES LOOK LIKE SEWAGE WASTE". And I'm going to be completely honest, 2 years ago, I thought the exact same thing. However, ever since I made a lifestyle change (eating healthy, working out, being conscience of what I'm doing to my body), I began to explore the realm of wholesome ingredients that I need to incorporate into my diet. I recently got my own Nutribullet, and I absolutely love it! You can make pretty much anything you want with it...smoothies, nice cream, soups, dressings, shakes, doughs...anything!

Today, I wanted to share with you a nutrient-packed, vitamin potent, smoothie that tastes absolutely fruity and delicious! I drink it mostly once a day! It's a vibrant green shade because of the Spirulina Powder by Sari Foods inside of it. It also contains a blast of extra Vitamin C because of the Vitamin C Powder by Sari Foods. These two products can be purchased on amazon (http://amzn.to/18fiZ2p and http://amzn.to/1DIv25g) Let me tell you why I chose these products to put into daily green smoothie!

Sari Food's Organic Spirulina Powder contains only 100% organic, pure spirulina powder. Spirulina is one of the top superfoods that is starting to get a lot of attention with celebrities, models, and even people at home who want to keep their body in prime condition! it benefits the inside of your body (digestion, detoxification, cell generation, etc.) as well as the outside of your body (skin, hair, figure, nails, etc.) Click here for full details on Sari Food's Organic Spirulina Powder



The Claims:
  • OPTIMIZE YOUR HEALTH WITH NATURE'S MOST PERFECT MULTIVITAMIN. With over 100 naturally occurring and bioavailable vitamins & nutrients, Sari Foods Spirulina contains more than 60% protein and is a non-synthetic source of iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, beta-carotine, B12, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, antioxidants and essential amino acids (GLA, Omega 3, 6 & 9s).
  • STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM. Organic Spirulina is the most nutrient dense food known to humankind and works miracles in the body by helping to balance your pH and reduce Inflammation - which is the root of most disease. This nutritional content is immuno-amazing!
  • FIGHT AGING & FREE RADICALS. This miracle from the sea has more antioxidant activity than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables and 3900% more beta carotene than carrots, packing a powerful antioxidant punch that promotes skin health and cell regeneration while providing protection from cell-damaging molecules absorbed by the body through pollution, poor diet, injury, or stress.
  • IMPROVE ENERGY, MOOD & METABOLISM. Organic Spirulina elevates your energy by unlocking sugar from your cells so it does not get stored as fat. The deep green color of Spirulina comes from a high concentration of Chlorophyll which absorbs its pure energy from sunlight and is considered nature's most effective energy booster, giving you instant and all-day energy.

Sari Food's Organic Spirulina Powder can be purchased here for only $23.95 for a 16 oz bag!

Sari Food's Organic Vitamin C Powder is derived from Acerola Cherries, a high source of Vitamin C (Equivalent to 65 oranges!) It is 100% food based and natural. Vitamin C is very good for your body, just like Spirulina Powder. It aids in absorption of nutrients, which is why I love to use it in conjunction with my Spirulina Powder, so that all of the vitamins and minerals are fully absorbed. Click here for full details on Sari Food's Organic Vitamin C Powder. 




The Claims:

  • PRIORITIZE LONG TERM HEALTH WITH NATURAL OVER SYNTHETIC. Many Vitamin C supplements (like ascorbic acid and calcium ascorbate) contain isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C that is highly toxic and may cause you more harm than good. Sari Foods 100% food based vitamin C is nature's complete complex, providing you with all of the benefits of this miracle vitamin without compromising your body or health. And rest assured, our Vitamin C powder is also organic!
  • REDUCE THE SEVERITY & DURATION OF COLDS. Natural Vitamin C is the missing piece of the puzzle to your body's immune system, offering protection against colds and reducing the threat of nearly every virus known to man. Vitamin C is also a natural antihistamine which means it even helps keep allergies, asthma and inflammation in check!
  • TURN BACK TIME. Vitamin C plays an important role in collagen production and cell regeneration, anti-aging's two greatest secrets, helping to reduce wrinkles as your skin retains greater elasticity and firmness.
  • PROTECT YOURSELF. With extreme antioxidant activity, Organic Vitamin C fights free radicals, protecting you from the cell-damaging molecules absorbed by the body through pollution, poor diet, injury, or stress. Sufficient levels of vitamin C are also required for the synthesis of stress hormones (like adrenaline), which plays a crucial role in countering the ill effects of stress.
  • GUARD AGAINST DISEASE. Since our body doesn't produce it, natural Vitamin C is the most important vitamin you can consume for optimal health as it is shown to help reduce many degenerative conditions.
  • Source: amazon.com
    Sari Food's Organic Vitamin C Powder can be purchased here for only $29.95 for a 6 oz bag!

    What I love about Sari Foods is that they only use whole foods to make their products (no additives, gmo's...or any other unnecessary garbage) Their products are natural, high quality and not as expensive as the ones you can find at health food stores. They also offer free shipping on their products via amazon! The only thing I have to mention, is that the packaging is very difficult to close. So, I suggest placing your opened bags inside a larger ziploc bag so that it won't get everywhere. 

    So, onwards to the recipe!


    Ingredients:
    -Fresh, Organic Spinach
    -Handful of Organic Mango Chunks
    -3 pieces of Pineapple Chunks
    -1 Tblspoon Sari Food's Spirulina Powder
    -1 Tsp. Sari Food's Vitamin C Powder
    -1/2 cup pure orange juice
    -Green Tea (fill to the top!)

    Blend away!

    Look at that vibrant green! All those nutrients ready to be absorbed into your body! No artificial colors, dyes, additives...NOTHING!
