Going cruelty free has been such an amazing journey for me 💖 Along the way, I have met MANY like-minded individuals, both readers and fellow bloggers, and have discovered & learned so much about beauty and lifestyle brands.  I try to stick to a beauty beauty budget so to speak when it comes to splurging on makeup, but when I find a brand/product that is giving back to an amazing animal cause I just can't hold back!  I know this was the perfect product to post about during #GratefulNovember 🍂  Check out what #GratefulNovember is all about by clicking here!  Keep reading to learn about Kat Von D Beauty's limited edition shade and the organization, Project Chimps 🐒

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum blog title

Serums are usually chock full of pretty amazing ingredients, and their goal is delivering said magical ingredients directly to the skin.  Also, since serums are actually made up of smaller molecules, they can actually deliver a higher concentration of active ingredients.  Once we follow a skincare serum with a moisturizer, we create a barrier to keep all that magic from escaping!

I have been lucky enough to try a few different products from Valentia Skin Care, but I was really excited to give their Night Revive Retinol Serum for a ride!  Keep reading to learn more about this retinol based serum and how it has helped me turn back the clock and transform my skin 💗
