Valentina ultimate skin repair and hydration combo product review
 
Recently, I had the realization that I had transitioned from combination skin in my 20's to dry skin hitting the latter part of my 30's.  Well, not really a realization, an amazing aesthetician & skincare expert brought this to my attention at a recent facial.  I started to go back and think about all the skincare products I had purchased that were meant for oily/combination skin that just didn't work!  Well, duh of course they didn't work...I was now a dry skin person:/
 
For this very reason, I was super excited about the opportunity to try out Valentia's Ultimate Skin Repair & Hydration Skincare Combo!  This dynamic duo are super heroes for dry skin.  Read more to check out my experience with Valentia Skin Care <3

Did you know that Valentia was the Roman goddess of healing?  Nor did I!  Well, she was, and much like the goddess, Valentia Skin Care, relies on all natural and organic ingredients to heal the skin.  Their products are natural, free of toxins, paraben-free, and of course...cruelty free:)
 
Our Mission: To provide you a greater level of overall happiness with your appearance without the harsh chemicals that dry out, stretch, burn and prematurely age the skin. Our strategic formulations include powerful natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to succeed in giving skin a natural and radiant glow that contributes to a youthful look.   

valentia true glow eye cream
 
Of the two products I had the pleasure to experience, I was most excited about the Valentia True Glow Eye Cream.  Ever since having Lasik eye surgery about 10 years ago, I have suffered from a mild dry eye.  This actually makes my eyes water more, and then the skin around my eyes tends to get dry.   There are tons of eye creams out on the market, very few of which actually work well.  This eye cream is meant to diminish fine lines & wrinkles, tighten the under eye area, brighten dark circles, and reduce puffiness.  I was really impressed with this eye cream.  It absorbed quickly but I could definitely see it working to moisturize and smooth my fine lines and wrinkles. I also felt like it created somewhat of a barrier on the skin around my eyes which helped protect it from the watery eyes.  I also really like the formula and consistency of this eye cream as it was lightly scented and  non greasy.  Something I also noticed was that it would last all day...some creams tend to dry out as the day progresses, but with this cream I my skin continued to feel supple and soft well into the evening.

valentia ultra plumping hydration mask
 
Who doesn't love a good mask?!?!  I am a huge fan of masks, because it's a total reset for me.  No matter how hard I try, my regimen during the week is never perfect.  I try...I really do, but I may fall asleep one day without washing my face or I may leave the house in the morning without putting on my morning serum, moisturizer, & eye cream.  The Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask is so light and fluffy!  I loved the consistency and  formula, and it just felt so moisturizing when I applied it.  The scent is unique, very light and refreshing.  It is a very clean scent, with a hint of floral...just looking at the ingredients I'm thinking the aloe, the Japanese green tea, along with dandelion and wild geranium play a part in the aroma.  I tried applying this in two ways: with a brush and with my hands.  I definitely preferred my own hands because I was sharing the moisturizing wealth.  My hands tend to get dry, because I swear I am always washing dishes:/  This method was great because my hands were getting their own mini facial! 
 
This face mask is meant to boost collagen production, increase skin's radiance, reduce fine lines, lock in skin's moisture, and reveal softer smoother skin.
