Keeping skin youthful


Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



I received the opportunity to try out Valentia's Even Glow Serum.  I was excited because I spend a lot of time outdoors, running and playing.  If you are like me, you try to wear sunscreen on your face and neck whenever possible, but when you are outdoors for hours at a time, the rays still get through a little.
So, I am always on the lookout for new products that will help repair and of course reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.


Why I chose this product to try.
I really liked how it had Vitamin C in it, I have heard many good reports that this is an excellent ingredient to put on your skin.  You also hear that a lot of aging celebrities use this ingredient to retain their youthfulness.

I also liked that it had a lot of natural ingredients that I could actually pronounce and have heard of: Vitamin C, Rosehip Seed Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf just to name a few.

The product claims that the oils work together to increase skin hydration and lock in moisture.
The antioxidant's in it state they promote healing of damaged skin to produce a more even glow and youthful looking skin.

The product states the following:
* Evens skin tone
* Increases Glow & Radiance
* Absorbs Rapidly
* Boost Collagen Production
* Reduces wrinkles & fine lines

________________________________

Next it was time to put it to the test with my own skin type.
I have an oily skin type, that generally goes along with olive skin tones.  Most importantly, I like things that hydrate without causing excess oil or making me feel like I have greasy skin.
**  This product passes that test.  You apply it before you put your normal moisturizer on, and it does soak into the skin quickly.  I have not noticed any additional oily skin appearance.

Another thing I liked was that the product smells quite nice.  It has a bit of a citrus scent to it, nothing to heavy pretty light.  I don't notice the scent after it dries only when I am applying.

It's easy to apply and it doesn't take much.  I personally have just been putting it around my eye area, and on my neck.

I don't have wrinkles yet, I am purely using products at this time that will help prevent future wrinkles and fine lines from setting in.

To answer if the product does everything it says it does, I cannot tell you that yet, as I have only been using it for a few weeks. However, it does have a refreshing feeling after applying and I have not had any weird reactions to it, it hasn't caused any redness.  I consider this great signs that it is compatible with my skin type.
In other words, I am liking the product so far so I have every intention to continue use of it.
