Lately I've been on the hunt for a organic skincare serum, so when Valentia Skincare kindly offered to send me their Even Glow Serum to review I excitedly accepted and decided to feature them in today's blog post.
This vitamin C serum claims to skin tone, increase the glow and radiance of your skin (hence the name, hehe), boost collagen production, and reduces fine lines/wrinkles. Now, I know, I know, I'm too young to have any wrinkles or diminishing collagen molecules, but I still had a chance to experience some other benefits this product had to offer! :)
♥ Product Overview From Their Website
"Our proprietary blend of *skin super oils compliment our 20% Vitamin C base, leading to a powerful antioxidant treatment. Each natural ingredient was chosen to support and enhance Vitamin C’s efficacy on the skin, leading to more well-rounded serum to add to your daily skin care ritual.
Our Even Glow Serum will repair, refresh, and renew your skin; restoring evenness to your complexion, giving you an extra boost of confidence each time you look in the mirror. "
SUPERIOR INGREDIENTS INCLUDE: Organic Rosehip Oil, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Green Tea Extract, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, and Resistem (Plant Stem Cells). All ingredients chosen for their ability to enhance Vitamin C efficiacy on your skin.
♥ POSITIVE UPSIDES
Packaging: Most serums look the same but with one I noticed how elegant the packaging looked. It's very classy and I love how it says REPAIR, REFRESH, RENEW on the side. This little detail adds a very clean look to the packaging and I'm a huge fan of it.
Scent: I really enjoy how the serum smells like fresh juicy oranges because I'm a little obsessed with citrus scents. Whenever I put it on I instantly become hungry but sadly the scent fades throughout the day.
Texture: I like how the organic Rosehip and Sea Buckthorn oil adsorbs quickly into my skin and didn't leave behind a oily residue and the little dropper made it easy to apply to my face without contaminating the bottle.
♥ MINOR DOWNSIDE
Right off the bat I noticed how I was starting to break out after using the serum for the first time. At first I was a little concerned because I rarely break out, but persevered for the review, using the product both day and night. Fortunately, after 3 days of religiously using the Even Glow Serum my skin adjusted which caused the blemishes to disappear.
The Even Glow Serum is rated 4 hearts out of five because the pros outweighed the cons. I love how smooth my skin is (after the spots faded), and how the Vitamin C helped me with my minor skin problems. But remember, this is just my opinion and as I mentioned before this product was sent to me specifically for review. Sure, all of my reviews are honest because I love how I can talk to you guys like you're my friends. But since we're friends I have to mention how I probably wouldn't have continued to use the product after broke out for 3 days straight. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I waited it out because the reward of having glowy skin is worth it, but let's be honest, blemishes suck and I wish they had a Vitamin C Serum made specifically for people with sensitive/acne prone skin.
Bottom line, I think this product is perfect for anyone who doesn't have acne prone skin and would like to amp up their skincare regimen with a organic, vitamin infused, super serum by clicking here! :)
