I have a few rules when it comes to skin care.
- Any serum is better than no serum.
- Natural ingredients are the best (I like science mixed with nature).
- Don't leave it to your serum alone, no serum can work magic without proper hydration, so also use a moisturizer daily, and nightly if possible!
Valentia Skin Care NEW - EVEN GLOW SERUM - 20% Vitamin C - Natural & Organic Ingredients -
98% Natural Ingredients (see below for a description of our Key Ingredients chosen specifically to enchance Vitamin C efficacy on the skin)
- EVENS SKIN TONE:
Vanquish dark spots and skin 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 visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.
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.
BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION:
The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C 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 us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger.
Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles.
In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin.
***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C's effect on the skin.
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil & Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C
Resistem (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.
Hyaluronic Acid (Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion
Green Tea Extact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.
The first thing I noticed about Even Glow Serum is the lovely citrus aroma. Now I am not saying I won't use a product that does not smell good, but I sure do prefer to put something on my face that does smell good! After all, my husband is going to be up close to my face so I don't want a serum that smells bad! Another good thing is that while it has a light citrus aroma it is not so powerful that it takes over, in fact the lovely aroma does dissipate after a short time, so if you are worried your perfume won't be noticed, don't worry it will.
The second thing I notice in a serum is the texture. I like the texture of this serum, it is milky, and smooth.
Then I notice the absorption into the skin. My skin is very well hydrated. I use moisturizers on my face, and body, at least twice a day, and I drink water all day long. My diet is full of veggies, so I feel I have well hydrated skin, yet my skin just sucks this up! Quickly too, not a slow absorption but a thirsty pull inward!
So then I look at how my skin feels after applying Even Glow Serum. Soft as a baby's bottom I tell ya! Super soft! I kind of want to put this all over my body! Okay I confess, I sort of did! I put it on my hands, then I put too much on my hands so I put some up my forearms. Oh and that brings me to my next point ...
How much do you have to use? That is something I always ask myself where a product is concerned because some serums, moisturizers, etc, it seems you have to use a ton, and that is never good because if you go through it too fast, you end up spending more money! With this serum, a little really does go a long way, so that is awesome because it will save you money!
So the final question is - does it work? I can say yes it does work. Look, I don't expect using a new serum to change my appearance to the point people start asking me if I got a facelift. That just isn't reasonable, and to be honest, I have seen some people who got facelifts that probably should not have. I prefer my beauty to be brought out rather than created under the knife, and using a quality serum like Even Glow Serum is one way to improve the look of your skin by a reasonable, but noticeable level. People have said my skin looks great, and I don't go out of the house very often, so with that said, it works.
What can you really expect? Glowing skin, healthier looking skin, a glow, lines appearing smaller, far less noticeable, and dark spots lightening up. Your skin will be more supple, firmer. Now keep in mind your results may vary from another persons, including my own results. You also have to drink water to maintain good skin health. Exercise is always a plus, not that I get enough of that, and using moisturizer will boost the effects of any serum, but if you want to add something good to your skin care routine I say this is one of the handful of serums I have tried that I would recommend, and I test a lot of serums! In fact I have others lined up to test as I type this, but since I only test one serum at a time, and was previously testing another before this (which I am not allowed to post about yet), I am suggesting this one for sure.
I also think the packaging is lovely, not that packaging truly matters at the end of the day results are what matter, but hey pretty packaging is always a bonus since you are going to be seeing it at least once if not twice a day (twice is best ladies!).
Oh and another note ... made in the USA! Also uses organic ingredients. Love this!
