I think I have found the best scar gel ever. I was given the opportunity to try a bottle of InstaNatural's Scar Gel. I hate to sound all 2000's, but this stuff is the bomb dot com.
InstaNatural is a company based out of Orlando, Florida, which really attracted me because I like to support businesses that are based here in my home state. Their focus is all natural and organic ingredients, another thing that really attracted me to their company.
Natural and Floridian, can it get any better?
One of the things that made me really happy upon opening the package was the boxes: recycled cardboard that I can toss right back into the recycling bin!
First I'm going to talk about the scar gel, and my experience gaining my lovely ankle scar.
Two years ago this month I broke my ankle, a chronicle you can read in this post.
I had surgery to repair my ankle, and was left with a nasty scar.
This is the inner ankle, which now has a couple of screws in it.
This is the outer ankle. I had a tough time taking this picture, so the scar looks really faint. It's actually much darker when you see it in person.
This is the tube of Scar Gel.
As you can see, all of the wonderful ingredients that kick the scar's butt are listed right on the front. The epidermal growth factor really intrigued me! Below is a further list of ingredients for the curious.
My favorite part? They don't test on animals! This is one of my absolute favorite things to see on a packaging of a beauty product.
I didn't know what to expect with a tube like this, and was pleased to find a convenient little pump.
Another thing I like is the pump only distributes a little at a time, so you don't risk overdoing it and wasting product.
This is what the product looks like. It has a light scent to it, nothing offensive, very herbal. When I applied it, it almost felt a little gritty.
This is from the very first time I applied it. Of course I applied way too much and my boyfriend said it looked like I had a poop stain on my ankle. I told him I didn't care, as long as it worked!
The best part is that it has really worked. I have tried so many different scar reducing products, only to be highly disappointed with the outcome. It did nothing to reduce the scar on my ankle, and some of them actually burned.
It's been just over a week of applying this product twice a day and I can see a drastic difference in the color of my scar. Some spots on the outside ankle scar are actually disappearing from view completely!
In another two weeks I am going to post some followup pictures, since I generally like to give a product two weeks to a month to work so I can truly see results.
The second product they sent me was their Youth Express Eye Gel.
Don't let the name deceive you, you can use this gel all over your face to fight the signs of aging.
Just like the Scar Gel, they list all of the key ingredients on the front to show you what will be working that magic on your face.
Not tested on animals, yay!
Also, just like the scar gel, it has a convenient little pump that only allows a little product to come out, so you don't get too much out at once.
This is the gel itself, transparent. It has a very nice consistency. Once on your skin, it doesn't feel sticky at all. It absorbs very quickly.
I've been using it morning and night in with my regular face routine. I don't just put it around my eyes, but also on my forehead and the bridge of my nose in between my eyebrows, since I have some fine lines forming there.
I noticed within days an almost immediate improvement of my eye bags and puffiness that have stemmed from being ill and poor sleeping habits. It's tackled the darkness under my eyes, too!
Here are both products side by side, before I took off the plastic wrap.
For size reference, here they are sitting next to my iPhone.
I am so happy that I had the opportunity to try these products, and I hope that you will give them a try as well. They have a full line of all natural beauty products to fit almost everyone's skin needs and concerns. I usually won't go this far when praising a product, but these things are miracle workers.
