Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum Review

Roadtrip update: I'm still on my trip and haven't had regular internet connection. Now that I am settled in, however, I will be able to blog each night, after an exciting day of exploring! I will be able to respond to questions and comments very soon, and you can expect more regular updates then. Thanks for hanging in there with me. :o)

A wise man by the name of Benjamin Franklin once said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

That is something that I have taken to heart, especially when it comes to the aging process, including wrinkles.

Here's what I know about aging and wrinkles:
  • You can prevent them.
  • Wrinkles are inevitable, but you can prevent them from getting worse.
  • Prevention is easy; curing is difficult.
The good news is: Skincare technologies have come a long way, with extensive scientific researches to back them up.

Today, I want to talk to you about Valentia Even Glow Serum, Vitamin C 20%. I have been using this for nearly two weeks, and already I can see the positive changes in skin texture and elasticity. In fact, I love this serum so much that I plan on using up the entire bottle, and purchase more.

Valentia Even Glow Serum is an antioxidant treatment to brighten, protect, and even skin tone, reducing the sign of aging.

Now, if you have been to my blog often enough, then you'd know that I am a mama of two very active and loving  9-month-old boys. Yes, they are twins. Yes, this also mean that I am kept busy 24 hours a day, constantly running around in different directions, ensuring that the needs of my family are met.

This means that I don't always get enough sleep.

This means that I don't always feel well-rested.

This means that my skin pays the price.

I try to get as much rest as I can, but sometimes, I just can't, you know? Stress and the lack of sleep made my skin lose its natural glow, along with looking sallow.

Then, I started using the serum.

So, what exactly does this serum do? 

Well, for me, my skin definitely is much firmer after two weeks of use. Also, it does look more radiant and "glowy," for sure. When I touch my skin, it does feel plumper as well.

Here's what Valentia promises the Even Glow Serum can do for your skin: (Please click on the image below to see the larger version)

Anyhow, here is the texture of the serum: it is thick but non-greasy.

Yes, that is my forearm. Yes, it is that dry because I wash my hands and forearm thoroughly each time I change task. Trust me, with two babies, and the constant feeding and diaper changing, I'm probably keeping the hand sanitizing soap companies in business. If you're familiar with such soaps, then you'd know that they're extremely drying! And, yes, I do try to use body moisturizer as often as possible, but the constant washing does take its toll.

Valentia's Even Glow serum soaks into the skin easily, and restores its natural vitality:

Let's also look at the impressive list of ingredients: (Be sure to maximize!)

  4. I agree, wrinkles can be prevented. I think Vitamin c is excellent for the skin! Thanks for the breakdown of ingredients, this serum looks to be packed with loads of anti oxidants and nutrients.
