Today, I wanted to share with you a new product I've tried this summer: Valentia Skincare Even Glow Vitamin C Serum! Firstly, let me just say that this product smells like summer in a bottle! It has a vibrant and lively citrusy scent that is reminiscent of eating sweet oranges on a hot summer day! Before I get started on this review I want to first mention that I've been using The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost for the longest time, and I didn't really notice much of a difference with my skin, except that it worked as a really nice primer that had a light orange scent. When I tried this serum out, I can honestly say that I do notice a difference in my complexion! My skin feels supple and although it isn't intentionally used for clearing up acne, I have not broken out at all the past weeks and I highly believe it is because of this serum. Even the acne scar above my brow has faded!

Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles.
In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin.
***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C's effect on the skin.
ORGANIC ROSEHIP SEED OIL & ORGANIC SEA BUCKTHORN OIL - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C
RESISTEM (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.
HYALURONIC ACID(Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion
GREEN TEA EXTRACT- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.
98% Natural Ingredients (see below for a description of our Key Ingredients chosen specifically to enchance Vitamin C efficacy on the skin)
EVENS SKIN TONE: Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration with this new generation Vitamin C Serum. Quickly refresh uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.
INCREASES GLOW & RADIANCE:
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.
BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION:
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.
REDUCES WRINKLES & FINE LINES:
Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us 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.
Like previously stated above, I did notice a difference with my facial complexion. I mean, I didn't really wear much face makeup for the past weeks! My skin is soft, even and appears radiant. This product didn't make me breakout, and surprisingly, my acne has disappeared! I applied it once in the morning after cleansing, before moisturizer, and the same routine at night. I did feel as if this serum was a bit sticky when first applying, but when it dried the sticky feeling was gone. I'm so happy I found this product because it works so much better than the Body Shop Skin Boost which did nothing for my skin in the longterm.
So, you're probably asking yourself...."Where can I buy this miracle serum?" "Is it too expensive?" I can answer those questions in one easy sentence: You can buy it on amazon.com for only $35.00+FREE shipping! Most serums that my mom, my sister and I have purchased at beauty counters or Sephora range from $50-$150, so this serum is not only one of the best I've tried, but best in value too! This product is sold only here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HJD8NLY and Valentia Skincare also backs up their product with a 90 satisfaction guarantee.
