When you look at some models you can not wonder what they do that there are no visible blemishes on their face. I mean how many friends, family members, people you work with or just encounter around the place you live have perfect skin?
After a lifestyle enjoying sunshine and the out of doors, my skin has decided I should have a darker complexion. Random blotches of brown pigmentation are popping up on my cheeks, which are sometimes called liver spots or age spots. I just call them those darn ugly spots that I have to try covering up as best as possible. I even gave in and spend a crazy amount of money to do professional peels with promises that that would fix the problem. It did for as long as I went in to have a laser zap off layers of skin, but sadly the spots came back with a vengeance the minute I stopped.

This brings me to Valentia Skin Care and the Even Glow 20% Vitamin C - Antioxidant Treatment which I received to try out and review.
About the Product
Our skin is damaged each day due to environmental pollutants, oxidative stress, and chemical laden cosmetic products. The amount of free radicals waging war on the skin quickly depletes our natural protective resources, which can rob the skin not only of it's youthful look but create problem areas and make us look aged.
Valentia skin care formulation is backed by scientific research into the efficacy of each of the natural ingredients they have carefully selected.
Let's take a closer look at what's in the Serum.
Vitamin C reduces inflammation and improves cell renewal. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles. It is highly recommended to be taken in Vitamin form to benefit the immune system, but research has shown that it works even better when applied topically.
ORGANIC ROSEHIP SEED OIL
Organic Rosehip Seed Oil aids in collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. It also promotes skin hydration and locks in moisture to protect your skin further from signs of aging thereby improving the skin's texture which we associate with youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments. Rosehip Oil helps diminish the appearance of scars, eczema, acne and stretch marks. It is considered an excellent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, which penetrates the skin and also reduced the appearance of scars and fine lines.
ORGANIC SEA BUCKTHORN OIL
Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil also reduces inflammation and aids in cellular rejuvenation, wound and scar healing. As blemishes on the face lessen the overall appearance of the skin evens out giving the skin that youthful unblemished look back. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C
RESISTEM (Plant Stem Cells)
Resistem in often a key ingredient in anti-aging cosmetics to help protect the skin from stress-related aging by promoting skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.
HYALURONIC ACID(Botanical) is an excellent moisturizer that restores skins firmness, natural resilience and is beneficial for skin health
Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin, Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent moisturizer and we all know no one wants to look like a shriveled up prune, but rather have the skin of a firm ripe tomato! It penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion.
GREEN TEA EXTRACT
The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.
So does it work?
First I should point out that every time I write a review I insist on trying out the product first so I can honestly write about my experience and results. First I give the bottle a quick shake to mix the ingredients thoroughly. Then I apply the Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C serum with the provided dropper on my face and neck area with little dabs twice a day, once in the morning and then again at bedtime. I place these little dabs in places where I had some wrinkles, small red irritations and of course on those dreaded brown spots first and then spread the serum all over my entire face and neck. The serum itself looks like thick cough syrup, is a light orange and has a pleasant citrus smell to it. I goes on smoothly and dries quickly, which is important because it allows me to apply my make-up right away without fear of causing skin irritation.
There is no fountain of youth therefore I can not report overnight success. Sorry ladies! Two weeks is not enough to see the long term benefits of using the serum either, but I am happy to report that two weeks was enough to see some small changes occur. I love that the serum does not feel sticky or heavy and that it absorbs quickly into the skin. For one I did not break out by using a new product on my face either, which goes to show that the ingredients are indeed natural. My skin feels very smooth to the touch and looks very hydrated. I suppose that's what's meant by giving the skin a nice glow. The fine lines around my eyes have disappeared and there are no red blotches anywhere. I had one trouble spot by my eyebrow where the skin would start to flake and get red. Since I have been using the serum that area has been trouble free. The brown spots are still there, but I could swear they look lighter. My skin type is normal with the nose area being oilier than the rest of the face. My nose does not feel as greasy and overall my face just looks even. I will continue using the Even Glow Vitamin C serum and will report back to let you know about the results after finishing the bottle. So far I have been really impressed by the results and can't wait to see what happens long term. Of course you can greatly help the longevity of your skin's youthful appearance by drinking lots of water, eating healthy foods, using sun screen, abstain from smoking and reducing stress factors in your life. A combination of all those along with an extra dose of vitamin can lead to a healthier looking skin.
