Review: Valentia Even Glow Serum (Amazon exclusive)
06 Oct 2014
Hi guys! Long time no see! You’ve probably been wondering what happened to me (or I would hope so… LOL). I’ve just been really busy with packing and unpacking, because…we’ve moved again! We now live in Las Vegas, Nevada. After being in California, Ohio and Kentucky, we though it was time for a change. 😉 It’s our mission to live in every state in the US (just kidding!). I will go more into the move in a different post. For now, I reeeaaallly want to tell you about this serum I’ve been using (after all, this is a beauty blog..hihi!)
A couple of weeks ago I hinted about an upcoming review. I had just received a new skin care product to try: the Valentia Even Glow Serum. I personally love using serums, because, unlike moisturizers, they have a higher concentration of ingredients and therefore deeply and quickly penetrate the pores in your skin. Serums are much more effective than moisturizers. I’ve been using this product for over a month and below are my thoughts. 🙂
Valentia’s Even Glow Serum is said to hydrate your face all day leaving it with a refreshing, well-rested and radiant glow. Below is an overview of the key ingredients in this antioxidant serum:
*20% Vitamin C
Invaluable to the brightness and texture of your skin Vitamin C is also critical for the production of collagen helping to maintain skin elasticity and firmness. Scientifically proven to reduce oxidative stress protecting you from sun spots, redness, dulness and wrinkles.
*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.
*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. It penetrates deeply and activates collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion.
*Green Tea Extract
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.
What it claims to do:â€‹â€‹ â€‹â€‹ â€‹
‘With continued use of the Even Glow Serum you will see better results, from the softening of your skin, fading of fine lines and wrinkles and the evening of your skin tone. Our Vitamin C Antioxidant Treatment takes a bit of time to remove toxins and refresh your skin so don’t be discouraged if you don’t see immediate results (although do not be surprised if your skin feels smoother within the first couple of days).
The antioxidants in your Even Glow Serum can take up to 4 weeks to completely soak into the skin and remove toxins that are causing dullness, dryness, and discoloration’.

â€‹â€‹How I use it:â€‹â€‹ â€‹â€‹ â€‹
Because Valentia’s Even Glow Serum is made of natural ingredients, it may start to separate because there are no chemicals used to bind the ingredients together. So before I apply it, I turn over the bottle and shake a little bit. Then I apply tiny dots all over my face and blend lightly. I was using it at night before bed, but I find that it works great under makeup as well: it makes your skin nice and smooth, which makes my foundation look better. So I’ve been applying it in the morning.
â€‹â€‹My thoughts:â€‹â€‹ â€‹â€‹ â€‹
I’ve been dying to post this review, because I LOVE this product! My skin seems to react very well to it. I have very sensitive skin and most highly concentrated products just make me breakout. This doesn’t! It’s a light, clear substance and not greasy whatsoever.
You only need a few drops of it and it smells really nice. I’m normally not a big fan of citrus scents (usually it smells fabricated), but this smell is the real deal and it smells lovely! And after only a couple of weeks of using it, I’ve noticed a softer texture and smaller pores, which amazing to me! Also, it makes my skin feel really soft and smooth. Works great under makeup and other skin care products!
â€‹â€‹Where to buy:â€‹â€‹ â€‹â€‹ â€‹ â€‹
You can find the Valentia Even Glow Serum on Amazon. It comes in a 1.18oz bottle with a dropper, which is very easy to use (no mess!). I just looked it up again and I see that it’s on sale now for $35. Great price for a vitamin C serum!
