Good morning darlings! I recently had a chance to try out Valentia's Even Glow Serum. The Even Glow Serum is suppose to even your skin tone, increase glow & radiance, boost collagen production, reduce wrinkles & fine lines and absorbs rapidly. As with all product reviews lets get some background on the product.
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 has specifically been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin aliments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural alternatives from our ancestors. These 2 organic oils are full of antioxidants, therefore, acting 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. 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.
DIRECTIONS FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS:
Because Valentia's Even Glow Serum is made of natural ingredients, though unlikely, it may start to separate as we refuse to use chemicals to bind together our ingredients. For optimal results, turn over the bottle and shake lightly for 1-2 seconds. Apply a small amount of the serum to your clean (and dry) face and neck daily. Allow the serum to dry before applying moisturizer and makeup. Some customers choose to use their Even Glow Serum in the morning, evening, or both. We recommend you experiment with what is ideal for your individual lifestyle.
Now on to what I thought of the product:
I was very impressed with the product, they had us order the item through Amazon so I was actually able to see how shipping would take from cart to door took three days. It arrived in a secure bubble mailer and had both safety seals on the box and container so you knew it was brand new and never used. Price wise it wasn't expensive but wasn't drug store cost either. I wouldn't say this would be affordable for everyone but would be a nice splurge item to pamper yourself. (Perhaps a birthday or Christmas gift to your self!)
My first impression of the Even Glow Serum was it had a very citrus smell, I could smell the pink grapefruit and sea bucktorn. I chose to use serum as part of my evening routine, so after washing my face I would pat dry my face, lightly shake the bottle and apply a full pump to my finger tips. Its spread it onto my finger tips then lightly apply it all over my face and neck with gentle upward strokes paying more attention to my more problem spots. [I didn't apply it to my eye lids as they are sensitive to a lot of products and didn't want to chance a flair up of any kind.] (Note to self: stop pulling on eyes when applying eyeliner.. it causes wrinkles..DUH!)
As it dried I felt my skin tightening not like the over dry you need moisture tightening but like it wanted to pull my skin up and where it should be, if that makes sense. I allowed it time to set by brushing my teeth then followed up with my moisturizer.
I have been using the product for a little over a week and while I don't see instant results, my skin is starting to become even in tone and is super soft. I definitely think given the full four weeks and I would see some impressive results!

THING TO REMEMBER:
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).
Serums, unlike moisturizers, have smaller molecules and a higher concentration of ingredients and therefore deeply and quickly penetrate the pores in your skin in order to deliver our incredibly effective natural and organic ingredients. Serums are ingredient delivery systems. If used consistently, you will see more noticeable and dramatic results. The antioxidants in 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. The best way to apply the serum to your face and neck, in order to get full coverage, is to apply tiny dots all over and blend quickly but lightly.
Do not be discouraged if you do not appear ten years younger after the first use. Good things come to those who wait :)
