And another vitamin C serum joins the pantheon of wonderful serums!
I had the opportunity to try Valentia Even Glow Serum with Vitamin C 20%. Even though I’ve tried about a million vitamin C serums over the past year or so, I am always up for trying new ones. As I mentioned last time, each one is different and usually shines in its own way. It’s just a matter of finding the right combination of product attributes, benefits and ingredients to suit you and your skin.
Just to review, vitamin C serum:
- helps to stimulate collagen production
- is an antioxidant that fights free radical damage
- restores and regenerates previous skin damage, e.g. acne scars, hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles etc.
- protects skin from UV damage by working from within and by thickening the dermis layer (However, vitamin C serum does not replace using SPF!).
Valentia Even Glow Serum arrived in an elegant white box with gold trim.
Like many others, the serum comes in a dark brown apothecary bottle to protect the effectiveness of the ingredients. It has an easy to use dropper.
What I love most about Valentia Even Glow Serum is the incredible orange scent. It’s more than just a hint of oranges. I love oranges and anything that’s orange-scented, so I really love using this one. It’s an instant pick-me-up.
The other benefit for me is that the orange serum is the perfect viscosity: thick enough that it isn’t runny, not too thick that it’s hard to get out of the dropper. Perfect.
I use it twice a day after washing my face. I apply it to face and neck, let it dry, and then apply my moisturizer. Valentia Even Glow Serum suits my skin well, and it does give me a glow after applying it. I have used so many serums I can’t really say which one did what, but overall, my skin looks better since using vitamin C serums.
Valentia Even Glow Serum with Vitamin C 20% contains 1.18 fl. oz./35 ml. It’s made in the U.S. It contains 98% natural ingredients including what they call “Skin Super Oils”: my favorite organic rosehip seed oil and also organic sea buckthorn oil. Other key ingredients in the formula include:
- hyaluronic acid to attract moisture and keep skin hydrated
- green tea – antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-irritant
- plant stem cells to help skin recover from stressors.
It doesn’t contain alcohol or parabens.
