New Valentia True Glow Eye Cream

I have tried Valentia products before and was thrilled to be given the opportunity to try their True Glow Eye Cream. There are many reasons why I love this company, here are a few:

~products are cruelty-free
~made in the USA
~beauty lab is owned & operated by women
~primarily uses natural & organic ingredients

Valentia True Glow Eye Cream is full of antioxidants that help lock in moisture and repair and tighten skin around the eye. Here are some of the key ingredients:

~ Astaxanthin increases moisture levels, smoothes fine lines & wrinkles, & restores elasticity
~Resistem Natural Plant Stem Cells that protect skin from environmental pollutants and stress-related aging
~Vitamin C leaves skin smooth and bright
~Organic Rosehip Oil provides intense hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
~Arnica anti-inflammatory agent that diminishes dark circles

I dab this eye cream under and around my eye every morning and night. It can easily go on under makeup and even acts as a sort of primer. The scent is delicious, though difficult to describe. The closest thing I can compare it to is a tangerine. The skin around my eyes feels moisturized and tight after having used this eye cream for several weeks. I don't have any proof that it is working but it feels good. And we all know that the skin around the eye ages fast, it is important to provide this delicate skin with extra moisture and antioxidants.

Purchase Valentia True Glow Eye Cream on Amazon.

Wine Aerator by Vino Aria

Do you want to be a fancy wine drinker? I hear people describing their wine as "chewy" and "flabby", and while I nod along, I have no idea what they are talking about. How can a wine be chewy?? Another way to be a fancy wine drinker is to use an aerator. An aerator allows your wine to breathe and lets oxygen flow to enhance the taste and smell of the wine. Don't you want to make your chewy wine even chewier? I don't know if you do or not, but you do want to use an aerator. 

The aerator by Vino Aria is super simple to use. I have seen others that require two hands and some sort of balance act. This aerator fits right on the wine bottle for an easy pour. It comes in a nice black box, which is great for storage to keep the aerator in good condition. 

I recommend a taste test for everyone to really notice the difference. Pour one glass without the aerator and one glass with the aerator. Then do everything you see in the movies. Smell the one, swish the wine, be one with wine. You will notice a very different scent and taste when the wine has been oxygenated with the Vino Aria wine aerator. You can purchase you own on Amazon by clicking here.
