Let's Just Get to the Point:
When it comes to skin-care miracle-workers, experts agree retinol takes the top spot. But the ingredient’s ability to slough away dull, dead skin can sometimes be too harsh for certain skin types, resulting in dryness, redness and sensitivity. One that plays well with all skin types? InstaNatural’s Retinol Moisturizer ($18), which boasts more than 1,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.

If You Want to Know More:
The multi-faceted retinol is formulated with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, safflower seed oil and green tea extract to address hyperpigmentation, hydration levels and sensitivity in every pump— along with wrinkles, of course. But what’s perhaps its most impressive feat? Being natural. “It’s formulated without the questionable ingredients found in other brands,” says Heather Wilson, director of brand development at InstaNatural. According to Wilson, these include, “worrisome preservatives, silicones, formaldehyde donors, PEGs and synthetic fragrances, colors and polymers.” The result of nixing these ingredients: results that work for your skin type. But don’t just take it from me—the stellar reviews on Amazon speak for themselves.
One user said: “After researching somewhat obsessively, I settled on this moisturizer, and in spite of my cautious skepticism, my skin has actually transformed: it's now soft, supple, and plush, and a colleague yesterday exclaimed loudly, "OMG, your skin looks flawless. You look flawless!!!" It is miraculous stuff, especially since it also hasn't broken out me out at all, and I've spent years trying to find a moisturizer which doesn't feel gross on my skin or cause pimples/cystic acne.”
And perhaps the most powerful statement came from another user? “People had thought I am 15 years younger than my age. I am now a devoted fan and diligent user of the InstaNatural product.”
