Review: Valentia Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub & Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask
*Disclosure* Products were provided for review thanks to Tomoson. All opinions are 100% honest and my own, like always
Hi everyone! I hope you all aren't tired of me talking about Valentia products, because I have another review for you guys! Today I'll be talking about their Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub and the Detoxifying Clay Mask. Lets see if I liked these products!
Here is a bit about each product from Amazon:
Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub- A refreshing scrub with green and white teas partnered with a trio of tropical butters. Green and white teas were specifically chosen for their anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. Tropical butters provide essential nourishment to the skin to keep it hydrated. The result is smoother, softer, brighter, and rejuvenated skin.
- Brightens & revives skin
- Improves skin tone & texture
- Removes dead skin cells
- Softens the skin
- Prevents future breakouts
Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask- A natural kaolin clay and botanical based mask that gently removes excess, dirt and oil while deeply cleansing and exfoliating the skin to reveal softer, smoother skin.
- Draw out skin impurites
- Improve skin tone
- Reduce pore size
- Firm & strengthen the skin
- Leave skin feeling smoother
The scrub and mask first off have very different smells. They both smell like sexy men, but the scrub smells like Johnny Depp, and the mask smells more like Chris Hemsworth (I know, I'm really strange). Seriously though, the scrub smells dark and sultry, and the mask is like an Abercrombie model. Not taking into account the scent of either, they're both pretty good products! The scrub has grainy bits that are suspended in a gel based formula, that's a little hard to spread around the face, but once you get it going, it does a great job at smoothing out the skin. The mask also has grainy bits in it, but it's based in a clay formula. You leave it on for 15-20 minutes then you can use a washcloth to take it off, or rinse with your hands and get more exfoliation out of it. Using both the scrub and mask one right after the other makes your skin look poreless and feel slick to the touch. Since I have sensitive skin, I had a bit of redness for about 30 minutes after removing the mask, but my face didn't feel irritated.
I would only use these products sparingly, as they do really pack a punch to them. Maybe once a week or even once every other week if you have super sensitive skin. The scrub costs $24.99 and the mask is also $24.99, but I have seen it a little cheaper once in a while.
Overall, these are both great products! For the price, you really can't beat it, and I can never say enough good things about the Valentia brand. I'm so thankful I've gotten to try out so many cool products from them, and I look forward to seeing what they come out with in the future.
