Valentia 20% Vitamin C Even Glow Serum - Antioxidant Skin Treatment Review

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

Valentia's Even Glow Serum with 20% Vitamin C's Benefits:

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 as 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.

I love how this serum is different from other Vitamin C serums on the market. It is a bright yellow-orange color and smells and feels like orange juice concentrate—yummy! It is slightly sticky when applied on the face—like orange juice—but once it dries and you apply moisturizer on top (which is a MUST!), it feels fine.

I did not use this product for the wrinkle reducing properties or "youthful glow," but rather to help fade sun damage and my acne scars. Unfortunately, while it is a delicious smelling product with all-natural ingredients, it didn't help with either skin problem.

In fact, I would say it made my skin a bit rougher and made my acne slight worse. I contacted Valentia about the issue and they were very helpful, giving me tips and seeming genuinely concerned for my skin. I reduced my usage to once per day (only in the mornings) and while I didn't see my acne worsen, it still didn't do much for my skin.

I would give 5 stars to customer service—they are quick and attentive—but the product itself just did not work for me. It made the texture of my skin very rough and didn't do anything for my acne scars or sun damage. 

I will be making a Vitamin C comparison post for all the Vitamin C serums I have tried, on my main blog.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
