I’m not a pushover when it comes to beauty products. I have a set of standards that I adhere to, and if I don’t like something, I’ll tell you! That being said, about a month ago I was given a chance to try Even Glow Serum by Valentia Skin Care and, so far, I really like it!
Our skin is damaged every day due to environmental pollutants, chemical laden cosmetics and oxidative stress.
Essentially, Oxidative stress is an imbalance between the production of free radicals and the ability of the body to counteract or detoxify their harmful effects through neutralization by antioxidants.
Free radicals can negatively impact our health and our skin in many ways and deplete our natural protective resources. Without additional antioxidants, the skin’s ability to defend against these pollutants is diminished and signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin tone can appear.
Even Glow Serum starts with a 20% Vitamin C base which is in itself a powerful antioxidant treatment. Complementing this are skin super oils chosen to enhance and supoprt the Vitamin C.
I’m a firm believer in Vitamin C through fresh juices, fruits and supplements. I also appreciate it in my skin products.
The Power of Natural Ingredients
Parabens, phosphates, and other chemicals found in many skin care products can disrupt your skin’s natural processes. Adding natural ingredients can help strengthen its resilience and protective abilities, leaving your skin healthier and more youthful.
Here are some of the natural ingredients this serum contains:
(as mentioned above) Helps prevent environmental aging, wrinkles and pigmentation. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen, which helps maintain skin elasticity, strength and durability, providing a smooth and plump appearance.
Sea Buckthorn Oil:
I’ve been a fan of sea buckthorn oil since I first began using it about a year and a half ago. It helps erase fine lines, sun spots and imperfections in skin tone. Rare Omega Fatty acids (Omega-6 and Omega-7) in the oil help promote scar healing and moisture rentention and Sistosterol improves microcirculation giving skin a healthy glow.
Reduces Inflammation and Regenerates Skin Tissue Faster, also provides long-term benefits in protection
Protects and Helps Retain Moisture lost over time as we age and helps protect skin with a breathable barrier
Rosehip Seed Oil:
One of the best plant seed oils containing Vitamin A for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation and Vitamin E for firmer skin without dryness
Green Tea Extract:
The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits.
Each ingredient in Even Glow has its own positive effects; however, the synergy as they all work together provides the most benefit.
How does it smell? It has the fresh natural scent of oranges. I’m a huge citrus fan so I enjoyed this.
How is the texture? Neither too runny nor too thick
How is it on my skin? It absorbed quickly and I could feel a very mild tightening effect. It was non-greasy and non-sticky which is something I look for in my skincare products.
Did it leave my skin oily? No, not at all.
Is it vastly overpriced? No, in fact, it is on sale right now at Amazon for $35.
How long will it last? Mine has lasted me over a month so far as you do not need to apply much, just a few drops.
How does it work? My skin looks healthy, glowing and more youthful after using this for a month. I notice the fine lines are diminishing over time. They won’t go away miraculously, but, I do see change! My skin looks smooth, bright, plumper and the tone is even.
And, one of my crucial questions, did it irritate my skin, did the fragrance bother me: No, not at all!
Would I use this again? Yes!
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.
