Valentia Skin Care makes this wonderful vitamin C serum that contains 20% vitamin C. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the effects of the sun on the skin including burns, redness, and of course wrinkles.
The skin also needs vitamin C just to stay healthy. Getting enough vitamin C helps to keep the skin smooth and strong.
The other ingredients in the Even Glow Serum are included because they help the vitamin C do it’s job and provide moisture or antioxidants. They are all(98%) natural ingredients such as Rosehip Seed Oil, Buckthorn oil, Resistem, Hyaluronic Acid, and Green Tea Extract.
You are supposed to use this serum along with whatever cleansers and creams you have been using. At least for a while. If you just suddenly change products your skin can have a reaction and you might end up with an acne outbreak. Valentia recommends using your regular product in the evening and the serum in the morning (or the other way round – whatever works best for you).
Valentia says that the product:
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.
All that sounds great right? So does it work?
I can’t say about all those claims. They do tell you that it may take a few weeks(or more – everyone is different) to see results and I have only been using it for a few weeks.
What I do Know:
This serum smells really good. It has a citrusy scent that makes me feel good. I have been using it in the mornings and that little perk me up starts the day off well. It also looks and feels nice…it is sort of thick and doesn’t take much at all (a few drops) to cover your face.
It does adsorb quickly and is NOT the least bit greasy feeling. It soaks in and my face feels nice and smooth and moist. I like that.
My husband has told me that I look nice in the mornings several times…so I’m thinking the bit about increasing glow and radiance is probably true too. I’m not really sure exactly how to tell.
I have some areas of my skin that are a bit darker than others and they seem to be fading a bit. It will probably take another month or so to be really sure(or to make the dark areas disappear).
As to the boosting collagen production and reducing wrinkles….I have no idea how to tell on the collagen thing. I guess if wrinkles get smaller then there must be more collagen in there plumping them up some. The crinkle areas around my eyes do seem to be a bit less pronounced (at least in the mornings).
I like the Even Glow Serum. It feels good on my face and it smells good and it makes me feel good about how I look.
Right now you can buy Even Glow Serum on Amazon.com for only $35! (this is a special price and is temporary so get yours before it goes back up!)
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
