As I’ve gotten older, I have become much more conscious about what I put in and on my body. I read labels and all the available information I can about a product before I decide to use it. For anti-aging products I look for that fine line between all natural and organic and those that deliver scientific results.
Valentia Vitamin C Serum meets all my requirements and then some! The back of the box list the organic and botanical ingredients and what purpose they serve:
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.
The serum comes in a brown glass bottle with a stopper. Since chemical binding agents are not used, it is recommended that you lightly shake it. The serum has a slightly opaque orange-ish color with a soft citrus scent. It has a slight cooling effect as you apply it to your skin. It spreads easily and only a small amount is required. I applied in it in small dots over my face and neck and then blended it in. It is absorbed easily and once fully absorbed you can apply your moisturizer.
I have been using this product now for 4 weeks, I use it once in the evening. I love how it is making my skin look and feel. I have very sensitive skin and it has had no reaction. My skin appears smoother and brighter. It feels nourished. When I wake up in the morning, my skin still feels moist and soft. I love it! I guess you would call this a glowing review for Even Glow Serum (ha!).
