Valentia True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask
I have a couple of skin care items from a brand called Valentia to share with you guys today! They kindly sent these to me to review, so I thought I would give you all my thoughts upon using them.
First we have the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask:
This comes in a 4oz. jar, so you get a good amount of it. It's a squash orange color and has the consistency of jelly.
You apply this to a clean face and leave it on for 15-30 minutes, then rinse it off with a cloth and warm water. It is pretty invigorating and tingles a bit while on. I do notice my skin feeling softer afterwards. The mask has a ton of great ingredients in it as well:
+Botanical hyaluronic acid penetrates deep to plump skin from within.
+Organic sea buckthorn oil diminishes lines and sun spots while evening skin tone and firming.
+Japanese green tea provides anti-aging, anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant effects.
+Aloe vera moisturizes and firms.
I think this is a pretty nice mask so far, definitely worth a try!
The other product they sent to me was their True Glow Eye Cream:
This comes in a 1.18oz. pump bottle, and a little goes a long way.
It has a nice fresh scent to it, and is SUPER moisturizing. This is really nice to use as a treatment at night after you wash your face and do the rest of your skin care routine, because it really sinks right into your skin and makes it feel nice and smooth. You can also use it in your morning routine, as it helps with puffiness and dark circles. Luckily I don't experience dark circles too often, but I can tell you it definitely helps tired, puffy eyes! It feels cool and refreshing and really brightens up your eye area.
There are a number of great ingredients in this product as well:
+Astaxanthin is an antioxidant that increases moisture levels, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, and restores elasticity.
+Resistem repairs and protects skin from environmental pollutants and stress related aging.
+Vitamin C smooths and brightens skin.
+Organic rose hip oil provides intense hydration to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
+Arnica is a key anti-inflammatory agent to the restorative process that works to diminish dark circles.
I've really been enjoying this eye cream, and I think it's the perfect consistency. Because you need so, so little it will last a very long time. It sinks right into your skin without feeling greasy or oily, which is a huge thing for me because I hate oily products since I have such oily skin. I will keep using this and hopefully it will keep my eyes bright and un-puffy!
