Today’s post is about Valentia Skincare newest products, True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask (read here). In need to change up your beauty regimen? Let’s dive in!
Valentia Skincare products have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that will help repair, nourish and protect the skin, free of toxins and paraben-free.
As getting older is inevitable for me (I’m 30+ and I feel old, k), I have been on a look out for a good eye cream. And while I have used one or two in the past that ticked the right boxes also, Valentina’s True Glow Eye Cream, might actually be ‘it’. You know, that skincare product that you’re going to use for a long, long time and will keep fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles at bay.
True Glow Eye Cream ($25)
Ingredients: Astaxanthin, Resistem, Vitamin C, Organic Reship Oil, Arnica
When a product is able to impresse me from the get go, assume that I’m bringing that into my skincare line up.
True Glow Eye Cream stays true to the whole ‘glow’ name because it’s the first thing I’ve noticed when I applied it on my skin.
While my eye bags are designer looks cute printed on a T-shirt, I’d rather not have them, literally. I’d prefer to look fresh and awake even if in reality, I only slept for less than 6 hours!
Why You’ll Love It
Despite the rich texture, it’s actually lightweight once applied and has a silky finish. I’ve had no irritation since I’ve started using this eye cream, morning and evening. It helps depuffed the eye area while my skin feels smooth and pores are visibly minimized!
This brightens up your under eye area, hydrates and nourishes your skin. To me, that’s what I want from an eye cream and then some. The some is that it’s alcohol-free, paraben-free and is full of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask ($25)
Ingredients: Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Japanese Green Tea, Aloe Vera
Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask reminds me of mango jelly pudding so much, from its texture down to how it bounces around. It’s quite amusing to watch. One might say a rich custard, well, whatever desert floats your boat. Just don’t be tempted to eat it.
I made sure to do a patch test since they mentioned about the tingling sensation and I certainly didn’t want to aggravate my already flared up skin.
Why You’ll Love This Mask
Luckily, I’m glad to say that it went well. The cooling factor and soft bouncy texture of the mask is both fun and soothing to my face. It feels rich but not uncomfortable even if you leave it for a few minutes and while the tingling sensation pretty much happened as soon as it touched my face, it didn’t bother me nor it left any redness.
In fact, it felt quite a treat. The scent is on a musky side although my husband mentioned it smelled like candy. I guess you’re going to have to decide that for yourself. I took the mask off using a warm cloth even although you can rinse it with warm water as well.
I prefer the cloth in this case though because it helped the mask to really soak into my skin before wiping them off. My skin felt and looked hydrated, cleansed and plumped. As I resumed with my skin care routine, the scent did start to fade away.
This masks alone offers sufficient moisture so your dry skin will benefit well plus it contains the anti-aging wonder berry (Organic Seabuckthorn Oil) that will help reduce fine lines, diminish sun spots and give you supple skin. I find this mask very promising if you’re looking to up your skin’s moisture intake this year.
