A little about Valentia Even Glow Serum:
    Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration, replacing uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.

    Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.

    Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance. This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling or cracked skin, even in extreme weather.

    The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance.

    Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger.


Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles.

In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin.

***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C's effect on the skin.

Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion

Green TeaExtact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.


**First I want to preface this with the fact that I NEVER leave the house without make up so this is HUGE for me to put a picture of myself on my blog wearing no make up.

Here is a BEFORE picture. (no make up or doctoring)

I am a very self conscious person and have suffered from acne since I was a teen.  I thought I would get over that phase but here I am at 30 and still getting acne.   I know that this product is not made specifically for acne, but it did end up helping my skin SO much.  The first time I used it I could feel my skin drinking it right up.  I have combination skin and didn't think that this product would be very good for combination skin but it was amazing.  As I used this product for the first time I felt a little bit of a stinging sensation.  It was the same kind of a sensation I get when I use toner on my face.  My skin is VERY sensitive and I am allergic to many things due to chemicals.  I was SO excited to not have an allergic reaction to this serum.  Valentia Even Glow Serum with 20% Vitamin C is such a great product.  I noticed my skin tightened up and my wrinkles around my eyes and on my forehead diminished some.  I also noticed that a lot of the red blotches I get from my acne prone skin were disappearing.  I recommend just adding this to a regime and not changing it.  I felt like this product is great for tightening the skin and evening the skin tone.

Overall I really loved this product and I would recommend it to anyone with any skin type!!

Here is a picture AFTER I had used the serum for 2 weeks. (still no make up or doctoring)

As you can see I still have acne and hopefully I can find more products to help with that but my overall tone is better and most of my redness and blotchy spots are much improved.  It is hard to see the skin tone change as much in pictures as well as I can see it in person myself.  It is also hard to see my wrinkles in the pictures but they are there.  I hope you can at least get the gist of how great the product is.  

I felt like this was a REALLY brave move for me and hopefully I can gain more confidence in myself.  I know many women in this day and age have self esteem issues just as I do. 

LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF!!!  Something that I try to work on everyday.

......And YES I did chop my hair off during that time. :)
