Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum

Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum

I'm one of those people that thought I could go forever not worrying about my skin, it was just going to take care of itself, after-all, I thought good genes is really what mattered. Then I hit forty. I started noticing deeper smile lines, crow's feet, age spots and dry patches. My skin became very picky no matter what I did to it, I'd have break-outs for no reason and even got to the point where I completely gave up wearing any make-up at all hoping that would help, it didn't.

A few months ago, I decided to do what I've never done before, I started taking better care of my skin. I began washing it daily, moisturizing it, applying serums, using a mud mask....if someone says something is going to improve the health of my face, I'm up for giving it a go.

Valentia Skin Care sent us their Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum to try out.

Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum is made in the USA, cruelty-free, paraben-free and contains 98% natural ingredients. It's made to be compatible for all skin-types. The list on the box is long but I wanted to include it, so you could see for yourself.

There are some really unique goodies in here:

Wakame Bioferent (seaweed) - helps to boost antioxidant defense
Gotu Kola - lessons the appearance of scars and increases skin firmness
Lactic Acid - increases skin cell turnover for renewed skin
Licorice - corrects discoloration
Argan Oil - reduces water loss, protects skin

What does all this mean? It means that this is a product that is targeted to keep your skin fresh, clear, hydrated, healed and healthy. I don't know about you, but all of that seems very promising to me.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I LOVE a pump-top.

To get started, you'll want to begin with a clean face and pat dry. Take your bottle and use about two pumps on your finger tips. The serum is lotion-like, tan is color and smells refreshingly like citrus. You'll want to apply this evenly to your face and neck and let it absorb into your skin. It spreads super-well and doesn't leave any residue or stickiness behind. You can follow it with your normal moisturizer (some nights I did and some nights I used this serum alone).

After a week of use, I did not notice any difference in my age spots, but my skin does appear a little brighter in tone. I had no break-outs, my skin felt hydrated and smoother. I expect better results with longer usage. I would say this product compares well to prestigious brands. My dried out skin is slowly coming back to life, I do notice that I am starting to get a healthy glow without make-up.

PROS: compares well to high end brands, brightens skin, left no dryness
CONS: longer than I would like ingredient list

I received this product for free in exchange for an open, honest and unbiased review. My experiences are my own, we'd love to hear yours!
