I know I have shared a review of Valentia's Even Glow Serum and the Valentia Organic Rosehip Oil in the past, so when the company reached out to me to review their True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask I knew I couldn't pass the opportunity up! If you have read my blog in the past you know that I have oily acne prone skin and I have some significant dark circles under my eyes. Normally I stay away from anything that claims to be hydrating.
The Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask was the product I was less excited to try. I just assumed that I wouldn't get much use out of the product due to my skin's usual needs. However, I have found myself using it more than I expected! I have never used a mask anything like this one before. In the jar it is a pale orange gelatinous mixture that smells like Sweet Tarts. The mask is very thin when spread onto the face and has a nice cooling sensation. The mask remains wet for at least fifteen minutes, the recommended minimum time to leave on the face, and once it dries it doesn't feel tight unlike every other mask I have tried. Once the mask dries out it remains sticky, but it was so light that I forgot it was even on my face.
The Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask includes antioxidants such as Japanese Green Tea and Aloe Vera which Valentia claims will help reduce fine lines, increase collagen, and fight environmental irritants. They also say that the mask contains Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, and Sea Buckthorn Oil which add moisture into the skin. Each container of the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask includes 4 fluid ounces of product and retails for $25 on Amazon and Valentia.com. Each application doesn't require tons of product, so this jar will last a long time!
Those circles under my eyes have been developing some fine lines in the past several months, and I was finding my concealer settling into them and looking even worse than they were, so I was the most excited to try the True Glow Eye Cream. I feel like this eye cream is much richer than the others in my collection, so after using it in the morning and at night for a week I decided to only use it at night. I found that it was just a little too much for the daytime; however, it was excellent for my nightly eye cream. I only need one pump of the product for both eyes, so this bottle will last quite some time! I noticed my fine lines under my eyes started to seem a little more diminished and my concealers weren't settling in those little lines through the day. My dark circles are still around, but I feel like the only solution to those are lots of restful sleep!
According to Valentia the True Glow Eye Cream contains Astaxanthin wich helps to increase moisture levels in the skin which in turn will smooth fine lines and wrinkles while restoring elasticity into the skin. It also contains Resistem which according to Valentia are natural plant stem cells which will protect the skin from harsh environmental elements. Valentia is known for their products including Vitamin C in them, and the True Glow Eye Cream is no exception, this ingredient will leave the skin smooth and bright; this is the ingredient that you can smell the most in this product. The next major ingredient is Organic Rosehip Oil which on its own I am not a huge fan of; however, according to Valentia it will provide intense hydration which will in turn reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Finally the eye cream contains Arnica which is an anti-inflammatory which will help diminish dark circles. The True Glow Eye Cream contains 1.18 fluid ounces of product and retails $25 on Amazon and Valentia.com.
In my opinion it was interesting to promote both of these products at the same time; however, by doing so I was able to try two products that I have fallen in love with. Even if you have oily skin like I do you need to try the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask I truly feel that the product added the right amount of moisture to my skin and helped to control the oil a bit. I feel like I will certainly find myself purchasing the True Glow Eye Cream many more times in the future, and I look forward to sharing more Valentia products with you guys in the future!
