Favorite Beauty Product of 2014: InstaNatural’s Moroccan Rose Water
Have you tried using pure rose water as a facial toner before? It works to maintain the pH level of skin to make it soft and supple. It cleanses, tones, and moisturizes. Rose water contains natural calming and soothing properties making it a great remedy for sunburned skin. It can also be added to shampoo for soft and shiny hair. Massage it onto your scalp and throughout your hair to improve hair quality and strength. On top of all those benefits, rose water is very aromatherapeutic. It smells heavenly and is the ultimate floral scent to add to a hot water bath! It is VERY relaxing for the mind.
The InstaNatural brand of rose water contains no chemicals, preservatives or artificial fragrances. It works for a complete skin care routine of cleansing, toning, moisturizing and replenishing. Best of all, it is suitable for all skin types: normal, oily, dry and sensitive. I use it to prep my skin before using my favorite eye cream and facial moisturizer. Since this is my number-one-favorite natural beauty product, I am highly likely to buy more when I run out! I’m sad to say that I have already used half of my 4oz bottle this past month! It’s my fault because I poured too much of my bottle into my bath water. It only requires a few drops for aromatherapy benefits. From now on, I will only use it as facial toner though, simply because I love it for that purpose! It makes my face less red and tightens my pores. There is a noticeable difference compared to other toners I have dabbled with in the past.
InstaNatural only sells their rose water in limited batches in order to provide fresh and premium quality rose water. They also have special offers when purchasing 2 or more InstaNatural products.

February 2016 Update:
I’ve had such great organic search results for this post that I must update and say that I do love this InstaNatural Rose Water as much as I did when I first tried it. It’s by far my favorite beauty product. I’ve notice their price has decreased from about $20 a bottle to $11.97! That is an awesome price drop for such a high quality product. I’m also wanting to test out their Orange Blossom Facial Toner too. I can’t imagine that would be any less amazing. It sounds like a great option for woman who prefer less florally scents.
Other InstaNatural Products I Tested
I also tested two more of their products: InstaNatural Argan Oil & InstaNatural Seaweed Powder.
InstaNatural’s Argan Oil is perfect for weak, lifeless hair. It is made with an organic blend of Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Sunflower Oil and Grapeseed Oil. If you know anything about natural beauty products, you should know that those ingredients are KEY for enriching your body and hair! I have made many homemade facial scrubs and hair masks using one or more of those ingredients. They work wonders, especially on the hair! I had no doubt in mind that InstaNatural’s product would work to deeply condition my hair. I simply coated my hair in the Argan oil and left it on for 20 minutes before shampooing it out. You can let it sit over night if desired, but I found that 20 minutes still works nicely to calm my dry, frizzy hair. If my hair feels too dry or dull during the day, I add just a drop or two on the ends of my hair to easily increase softness. Argan Oil also works as a leave-in conditioner and heat protectant.

My favorite InstaNatural product to review and test out was the Seaweed Powder. I even took pictures for your viewing pleasure and self-humiliation. 😛 It is, of course, another 100% natural and organic product made with kelp that is Kosher Certified and Certified Organic by USDA and ECOcert ICO. Each batch contains 1.5 pounds of freshly harvested kelp from North America. It is a strong source of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12, Vitamin E, Iodine, Amino Acids, and other nutrients.
So, how do you use seaweed powder? It is commonly used in body wraps to create an instant slimming effect making your body appear firmer and more toned with less bumps and smoother skin. It helps reduce the appearance of cellulite on your body as well. My husband tested out the seaweed wrap in exchange for my complete support and non-existent complaints about him leaving for
vacation work for one full week in January… I added olive oil and warm water to one cup of seaweed powder to create a mixture to apply over his stomach and back. (I used a frosting spatula, it was hilarious!) Then, I wrapped him in plastic wrap and he let it sit for 25 minutes before rinsing off. (Do you think my husband loves me? LOL) I am honestly not sure if it worked because after using the wrap, he ruined the experiment and took an oatmeal bath to relieve his dry, irritated skin.
I used the seaweed powder as a facial scrub and mask. I added coconut oil and sea salt to the seaweed powder and massaged it on my face. I will most likely finish the remainder of the seaweed powder for this purpose because my results were amazing! My skin felt very soft and cleansed. The kelp powder cleanses your pores and extracts any dirt and grime, which helps create a more refined appearance with smaller pores.
