Review: Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask
*Disclosure* Product featured was provided for review thanks to Tomoson. All opinions are 100% honest and my own, like always
Hello everyone! Today I bring you yet another Valentia product review, this time being on the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. You all know my love for Valentia from my previous reviews, and this one is no different!
Here is a bit about the product from Amazon:
Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask - A blend of amino acids and hyaluronic acid work together to flood the skin with moisture providing intense hydration and nourishment. The result is a softer more luminous looking complexion that feels rejuvenated from the inside out.
This is said to boost collagen production, increase skin radiance, reduce fine lines, lock in skins moisture, and reveal softer, smoother skin.
Some ingredients to note:
Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend: These natural miracles increase moisture content and help in the production of collagen and elastin which decreases the appearance of visible lines.
Botanical Hyaluronic Acid: Penetrates deep into the skin to secure moisture and plump skin from within.
Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil: An anti-aging wonder berry that results in fewer fine lines, diminished sun spots, more even skin tone, and firmer more supple skin.
Japanese Green Tea: Contains catechins that provide anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-irritant effects to the skin.
Aloe Vera: This botanical moisturizers skin and fight aging by improving skin firmness.
I absolutely love this mask after I use a detoxifying mask. In the Winter especially, those kinds of masks tend to dry out my skin more, but I still need to use them to keep my pores clear. Using a hydrating mask afterwards helps to combat any dry skin I may get. The first thing I noticed was the scent. The Valentia products I've tried have smelled like citrus, but this one smells very different to me. It's kind of like a sweet/sour candy. It's not unpleasant, but I wasn't expecting it either. The directions say to apply to your skin and leave on for 15-30 minutes. It also says that tingling is normal, which I do get, but it's not bothersome at all. I tend to leave this on for closer to 30 minutes, then rinse of with a warm washcloth. After doing my little pamper routine, my skin feels so soft and hydrated, and it definitely does look plumper! I have also used this just after exfoliating, and have the same results. It hasn't clogged up my pores or made me breakout either, which is a great bonus.
Overall, for hydrating mask that only costs $23.99 here on Amazon, you can't really beat it. I continue to be impressed by this brand more and more and the prices are very reasonable.
Does this seem like a mask you would try?
