In my last post on Valentia products, I talked about how even though I’m only in my 20s, I’m trying to be hyper-vigilant about protecting my skin from the effects of aging. That hasn’t changed but with each passing year, I become even more aware of how much older I’m getting. I know it might sound silly to some of you, but I kind of feel like the quarter-life crisis is a real thing. Just me?
When I was asked to do another review on one of Valentia’s skin care products, I didn’t hesitant in participating because I’m always on the lookout for new and great skincare products. I’m still using my true glow eye cream and ultra hydration plumping mask, but I know there’s still more problem areas that need to be addressed.
The Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum is a lactic acid serum that supports natural circulation for an overall youthful and refreshed complexion.
- Renews texture & tone
- Deeply moisturizes
- Minimizes fine lines
- Increases elasticity
- Brightens & plumps fine lines
- Evens hyperpigmentation
What really draws me to Valentia’s products is the fact that they’re made with natural & organic ingredients. As mentioned below:
– Wakame Bioferment (Seaweed): Increases skin oxygen consumption to detoxify and boost antioxidant defense.
– Gotu Kola: Lessens the appearance of scars and increases skin firmness.
– Lactic Acid: A natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that increases skin cell turnover, for healthier renewed skin.
– Licorice: Lightens unwanted pigmentation and corrects skin discoloration.
– Argan Oil: Naturally rich in Vitamin E, this oil reduced water loss and protects skin’s resiliency and elasticity.
This serum comes in a bottle that is similar in size to the true glow eye cream, so if you’ve purchased that before then you’ll have an idea of how much of the product you’re getting.
It comes with a pump just like the eye cream and what I’ve been doing every night before I go to bed is first washing my face with a gentle cleanser. Then I will apply the ultra hydration plumping mask for about 15 minutes and brush my teeth while I’m waiting on the mask.
After that, I will dab the true glow eye cream on my eyes and finish off with the clear lift revitalizing serum. I pump about a quarter sized amount into the palm of my hands and then dab what is in my palm onto different parts of my face such as my forehead, cheeks, nose, chin and neck. Then I rub everything in so that it is blended well and soaks into my skin.
Here’s the tricky part. I have mild acne, so I can’t just use anti-aging products alone. After I’ve applied everything (the serum being the last step) I will wait for the serum to dry onto my skin and then use my preferred acne products. What’s so tricky about this, is that you’ll need to test a little bit on your skin first just to make sure you won’t have a bad skin reaction because you can never be too careful when combining two different skin care products.
I tested mine on a small patch to begin with just to make sure my skin wouldn’t react negatively and it didn’t which is why I didn’t have a problem using the two together.
I would also consider waiting for the product to dry before laying your head down on your pillow just in case of any stains or anything. Again, you never can be too careful.
I’ve been using this product for about 2 weeks now, and although the changes in my skin are only slightly different, I do think it’s worth the investment if you’re looking for a natural skin care product!
