Attention Beauty Lovers! I have a new skincare line to review for you! I am a huge skincare junkie and love trying new lines. I am a firm believer that to prevent aging you must start with skincare. Makeup can only cover so much. Taking good care of your skin has to start at an early age. I couldn’t wait to test the Valentia True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask! Onto the reviews!

REVIEW OF TRUE GLOW EYE CREAM:

Valentia says this about the product (from Valentia):

Say goodbye to tired eyes. This nourishing formula works fast to repair and refresh the eye area while protecting skin from the usual suspects of aging. Our natural and organic ingredients work to calm and reduce puffiness in the eye area revealing softer, more refreshed looking eyes. With continued use of this antioxidant treatment, you will start noticing a more rejuvenated, radiant, and brighter under eye area.

Health Benefits

  • – Diminish fine lines & wrinkles
  • – Nourish & hydrate
  • – Tighten the under eye area
  • – Brighten dark circles
  • – Reduce puffiness

Specially selected ingredients work together to achieve optimum results.

Astaxanthin: A powerful antioxidant that increases moisture levels, smooths fine line and wrinkles, and restores elasticity to the skin.

Resistem: Natural Plant Stem Cells repair and protect the skin from harsh environmental pollutants and stress related aging.

Vitamin C: Leaves the skin smooth and visibly brighter for a well-rested and bright eyed look.

Organic Rosehip Oil: Provides intense hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Arnica: A key anti-inflammatory agent to the restorative process that works to diminish the appearance of dark circles.

How To Use:

Use this cream after cleansing your face. Apply the cream gently around the area under the eye dabbing the skin with your ring finger in a circular motion around the orbital bone and moving towards the nose bridge. Apply cream twice a day.

My Thoughts:

valentiaEyeBeforeAfter

I love that this eye cream is in a pump bottle. It makes application so much easier. The eye cream has a slight melon tint. That is probably to help brighten and conceal dark circles. It smells like citrus which I love. I am such a sucker for citrus scents.

The eye cream sinks into the skin extremely fast. Therefore, it would be good for both morning and night. My under eyes felt hydrated and did look more radiant after just one use. It didn’t irritate or cause my eyes to water at all.

UPDATE: I used this eye cream for about a week. I really love it and how it hydrates my under eye area. I haven’t noticed a huge difference in my dark circles (keep in mind I have only been using it for a week). I will continue to use it and see if it makes a difference. Keep your eye out because this product could be featured in a monthly favorites post.

Pros:

  • Not Irritating
  • Sinks Into The Skin Quickly
  • Comes In a Pump
  • Citrus Scent

Cons:

  • Nothing

My Thoughts:

ValentiaSkinBeforeAfter

I was not sure about this mask at first because it looks so weird. However, don’t let looks fool you. This mask was amazing! It felt so great on the skin and so cooling. It really will be a perfect summer mask too. I love how easy it is to apply. It looked so messy, but it is beyond easy to apply.

I also enjoyed the scent for some reason. It is unlike anything I have smelled before. If herbs and flowers and a pinch of sugar was mixed together, you would have the scent of this mask. I have no idea why I love the smell but I really do.

The texture of the mask feels like slime which I really enjoyed. I felt like a kid with this mask and just love how it feels on the skin. It is a hydration mask so it doesn’t harden. I left it on for 20 minutes and it didn’t irritate my skin at all. I did feel a slight (and I mean slight) tingling. It was more of a cooling tingle than anything else though.

I removed the mask with a warm rag and my skin was left plumped. It really did plump my skin and my skin felt so incredibly soft. I did notice that my skin looked more radiant. I couldn’t stop looking at my skin because it looked so radiant and I didn’t even need highlighter. Joseph even said my skin looked amazing! When your boyfriend notices that you are glowing, you know you have found a winner. I didn’t notice a reduction in fine lines (I don’t really have them). My skin wasn’t irritated at all. Overall, I really enjoyed this mask and I will definitely continue to use it.

UPDATE: The next morning my skin looked even more radiant and amazing. I couldn’t stop looking at my skin. It just looked so hydrated and it was glowing. My makeup went on flawlessly and it was just awesome. I am a HUGE fan of this mask!

Pros:

  • Fun To Use
  • Easy Application
  • Cooling
  • Didn’t Irritate My Skin
  • Hydrating
  • Plumping
  • Softening
  • Radiant Face

Cons:

  • Some May Not Like The Herbal Scent

FINAL THOUGHTS: 

These products are really great! I am obsessed with the mask and have already used it a few times. I just can’t get over how amazing it makes my skin look. My skin just looks so radiant. The eye cream is also nice and sinks into the skin really fast. Neither of these products irritated my skin at all. I will continue using them both. I highly recommend both of these products if you are looking for some new skincare to try.
