Review: Valentia Even Glow Serum

*Disclosure* I was sent this product courtesy of BrandBacker and Valentia for review purposes. As always, my review will be 100% honest and my own!

Hey everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing this awesome Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Antioxidant Serum for you guys. I was so excited when this was sent to me as I had wanted to try out a vitamin c serum for a while thinking it would help out with evening my skin tone. 

This serum is made with:

- 20% vitamin C which helps with brightness and texture of the skin (I need that!) and it helps with the production of collagen (aka. fewer wrinkles)

- Organic rosehip and sea buckthorn oil. When you combine these oils with vitamin c, they help combat free radicals and promote deep hydration which helps reduce wrinkles and evens skin tone

- Resistem (plant stem cells) which protects against stress related aging while promoting skin detoxification by removing damaged proteins and other cellular waste

- Hyaluronic acid which allows skin to retain moisture while also increasing elasticity and firmness

- Green tea extract is a potent antioxidant that has anti-inflammitory and anti-irritant benefits

After using this serum for about 2 weeks, I can definitely say I've seen an improvement in my skin. This is such a lightweight serum and sinks right into my skin. For me, I only use between 5 and 7 drops for my whole face, neck, and chest area. I always take what I use on my face down as that ages too! I feel like my skin is brighter, and I honestly think it's helping in making my pores look smaller. I'm always on a quest to find something that helps with my pores. I do think this may have broken me out a little bit, but it hasn't been bad. Sometimes products that help to make skin glow can do that to your skin if you're prone to breakouts. I don't have wrinkles so I can't say if it helps with that or not. Also, I have to mention that this smells so amazing! If anyone has heard of a drink called Orangina, it smells just like that. My husband is obsessed with that drink because of its orange-y yummy goodness.

You can only get this product on Amazon and it only costs $35, which for a serum that contains 1.18 fluid ounces, is not bad at all. If you want more information go onto Valentia's website to learn more about what products they have.

What do you think of this product? Does it seem like something you would try?
