Beauty Review ~ Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum

With all of the hype around serums lately, you might be wondering what is a serum?  Dermatologists and cosmetic chemists say that a serum is more effective than a regular moisturizer because the ingredients are concentrated with active ingredients that deliver a powerful punch of nutrients to the skin.  This also means they are able to target problem areas such as dark spots, acne, and redness.  Valentia Even Glow Serum is made with 98% natural ingredients, including 20% Vitamin C, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Green Tea, and Botanical Hyaluronic Acid.  These ingredients combined, provide a rich Antioxidant that works with your natural body chemistry to promote a youthful appearance.  The oils in the serum are used around the world for their powerful healing properties.

Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum for face has a thick consistency that feels like a big drink of water for my skin.  It absorbs quickly and smells like oranges.  I love this scent as it reminds me of summer, which is an added bonus in these dreary winter months.  It is important to thoroughly cleanse your skin prior to applying the serum. This gives the serum the opportunity to deeply penetrate your skin without clogging your pores from the gunk that collects there throughout the day.  I have found it is best to use this only once a day, especially when you first start using it, because the ingredients are very powerful and could be overwhelming to your skin if you are not used to the ingredients.  I have even started using this serum on my hands, because the skin on our hands ages almost as fast as the skin on our faces.

These are the benefits reported on the Valentia website:

Evens Skin Tone
Vanquish dark spots and discoloration, replacing uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.

Increases Glow & Radiance
Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and radiant.  Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.

Absorbs Rapidly
Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance.  This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling, or cracked skin, even in extreme weather.

Boost Collagen Production
The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance.

Reduces Wrinkles & Fine Lines
Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20% Vitamin C. Special ingredients such as Sea Buckthorn oil plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer, and younger.

I cannot honestly attest to all of these claims.  I can say that my skin feels healthy and moisturized.  Given the extreme cold weather that I have been living in, this is a big deal.  My skin tends to get flaky and red in the winter.  I have not had this problem since using the serum.  I also think my skin has a glow that is usually nonexistent in the winter, when my skin turns completely dull and lackluster.
