I have been using this Even Glow Vitamin C Serum from Valentia for about 2 weeks now. I put it on in the morning after washing my face. It is recommended for just once a day use and once dry you can apply your regular moisturizer. I've actually felt that I've not needed to use mine after applying this in the morning. I do still apply my regular night cream at bedtime though since this time of year makes my skin so dry.
Before applying you do need to shake the bottle a bit because the natural ingredients tend to separate. Only a small amount is needed. The scent is lovely. I notice it as soon as I twist off the top. It is a wonderful orange scent. Not overly strong but a light fresh citrus smell.
It absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't feel greasy or heavy at all. I've noticed my skin color does look a bit more even and brighter. As I said it does feel like it helps hydrating my skin so I haven't needed to put on moisturizer in the mornings after using this. I will continue to use it since it seems to be helping. I don't have too many wrinkles yet (knock on wood) except a few under my eyes. I'm just very pleased with what it has done for me so far. The scent is such a mood booster too. Very energizing just opening the bottle.
Here is the product description:
- EVENS SKIN TONE:
Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration, replacing 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.
