In An Instant
In An Instant is a skin care system by supermodel and mompreneur Heidi Klum. Designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, large pores and skin imperfections while building benefits over time with continued use, the best thing about In An Instant is how quick and easy it is to use. There are four main components to In An Instant: Gentle Foaming Cleanser, Intensive Firming Serum, Instant Tinted Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15, and a secret weapon, the Instant Wrinkle Smoother wand. There are two bonus products in the line, a Warming Facial Scrub (feels amazing!) and an Eye Cream.
I don't have a lot of time to worry about multiple steps in my skincare regime, so I really appreciated this system's no-nonsense approach to beauty. It would be perfect for younger, active moms who might be starting to worry about wrinkles. I especially love the Instant Tinted Daily Moisturizer, which comes out of the tube looking oddly like cement but smells lovely and fresh like cucumbers. It actually creates a healthy, natural looking shade that eliminates the need for makeup. If you're a wash and go girl like me, you will love it. The only complaints I have about In An Instant are minor: I know I said I prefer fewer steps in my skincare regimen but I wish there was a moisturizer without tint and SPF to use at night. Also, the Eye Cream seemed to help brighten my dark circles and diminish puffiness, but after a week or so I developed an allergic reaction to it. (This is a problem I have with MANY eye creams, since apparently the gas permeable contact lenses I have worn since seventh grade cause a reaction with almost everything. Sad fact.)
Overall, I think In An Instant would be great for women who appreciate a healthy, natural look with radiant skin. It made mine look smoother and more glowing but unfortunately it didn't make me look like Heidi Klum…
