Valentia Review

I received this product for review.  All opinions are my own.

Valentia Review | High Heels & Combat Boots

This past week, I was able to try two great products by Valentia: the True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask.  I admit, I was a bit nervous to try out new skin care products because my skin can be super sensitive at times.  I’ve tried some products that instantly made my face break out and then it took way too long to get it back under control again.  So it’s always nerve-wracking when I try something new on my skin.  Luckily, I liked both of these products and they were both good to my skin.

Both of these products are alcohol free, paraben free, cruelty free, and made with 98% natural ingredients.  My skin care routine is very important to me so these were huge factors in why I chose to try out these products.  It’s important to stay away from ingredients that are harmful to your skin and lately, I’ve been paying extra close attention to the ingredients in my beauty products.  If I’m able to, I try to go with products containing natural ingredients.

About the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask*:

A blend of silk protein amino acids and botanical hyaluronic acid work together to flood the skin with moisture providing intense hydration and nourishment.  The result is a softer more luminous looking completion that feels rejuvenated from the inside out.  This product:

  • Boots collagen production
  • Increases skin radiance
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Secures skin moisture

Specially selected ingredients work together to achieve optimum results.

  • Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend: These natural miracles increase moisture content and help in the production of collagen and elastin which decreases the appearance of visible lines.
  • Botanical Hyaluronic Acid: Penetrates deep into the skin to secure moisture and plump skin from within.
  • Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil: An anti-aging wonder berry that results in fewer fine lines, diminished sun spots, more even skin tone, and firmer more supple skin.
  • Japanese Green Tea: Contains catechins that provide anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-irritant effects to the skin.
  • Aloe Vera: This botanical moisturizers skin and fight aging by improving skin firmness.

Likes:
  • It left my skin feeling super soft and smooth.  Some products tend to dry out my skin, especially with it being wintertime, but this one made my skin feel very moisturized.
  • With it being a mask, I figured it would leave my skin feeling tight, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t.  It is comfortable to wear for the 15-30 minutes that it has to be on for and, like mentioned above, it does a great job with moisturizing.
  • It worked great with my skin.  My skin tends to be a little more on the dry side this time of year, but like I mentioned earlier, it can be super challenging for me to switch up my skin care routine because my skin is just way too sensitives sometimes.  This product did not irritate my skin in any way, nor did it cause any breakouts.  I can confidently use this mask knowing it’s not going to harm my skin.
  • My skin felt hydrated and refreshed after just one use!
Dislikes:
  • The consistency.  It kind of had a weird feel and look to it.  It’s not horrible, but I do wish it was more of a lotion.
  • I didn’t care too much for the smell.  It wasn’t horrible or anything like that, but it wasn’t the best either.  If I’m going to be putting these products on my face, then I’d want it to smell a little better.  Luckily the scent does go away fairly quickly.

Likes:
  • It brightens dark circles.  As someone who doesn’t sleep well, I constantly has bags under my eyes.  It’s always dark and puffy under my eyes and sometimes it’s hard to conceal with makeup.  This product is awesome!  I use it in the morning as well as at night and after less than a week of using it, I’m already seeing a difference.
  • It’s not greasy or oily.
  • It absorbs quickly.  It barely took a minute for it to absorb, allowing me to move through my morning and nighttime routines more quickly.
  • Like the mask, this product did not irritate my skin in any way so I do plan to continue using it to see what the long term effects are.
Dislikes:
  • Again, I’m not a big fan of the scent, but like the mask, it goes away quickly so it doesn’t bother me.
  • The consistency.  It had a bit of a lotion feel to it, but at the same time it was a bit too thinned out for my liking.  I do wish it was a little bit thicker like a typical lotion would be.
  • I love that it includes a pump, but sometimes it’s not very effective.  You only need a very small amount of product at a time and the pump gives you way too much.

Overall I love both of these products so far.  I only had about a week to try them out though, so I don’t have too much I can report on them quite yet.  This is more of my initial reaction to them.  So far so good, but I will definitely have to continue using them to see what the long-term effects are.  I’m hoping I continue to love them so that I can keep purchasing them in the future.
