WHY USE TOPICAL VITAMIN C?
Vitamin C Serum is a must-have anti-aging skin care product because it enables the production of collagen, a vital building block of skin that gives skin its’ support. Without adequate collagen supplies, the skin begins to sag, wrinkle and look dull. The body produces less collagen as we age, so the more collagen one can produce the better. Vitamin C also fades discoloration caused by brown spots due to aging, acne, sun damage and scars. Valentia Skin Care Even Glow Serum is a great Vitamin C Serum for this purpose.
RESULTS: I had pretty good results with this Vitamin C; it contains a few ingredients that are not frequently paired with C serums such as Sea Buckthorn Oil, which is an oil with fatty C and E Vitamins that can revive skin cells with its’ over 200+ skin nutrients. These nutrients not only reduce the length and depth of wrinkles, but they can soften rough skin textures including acne. I have a forehead wrinkle near my hairline above my right eye, the depth and length of which appears much softer with nightly use of Vitamin C serum. It also has lightened the look of the lines between my nose and mouth and made some rough skin patches on my cheek and forehead softer and more pliable. I like the Sea Buckthorn Oil in this serum. It is not sticky and applies smoothly. I had no skin irritation.
SERUM TEXTURE AND APPEARANCE
This 20% Vitamin C Serum is unique in that it is more of a very lightweight creamy liquid than a watery liquid serum, so it applies smoothly and evenly. Unlike other Vitamin C serums, it is a primarily opaque, light shade of creamsicle orange due to the coloring of the Sea buckthorn oil.
The serum has a light citrus scent that is pleasant and dissipates on the dry down. A small pump of product is enough to cover the face and throat, too much will be sticky. Allow time for the serum to dry before applying makeup or sunscreen. Skin is not sticky after it is dry and makeup applies smoothly as long as serum is not over-applied. There is a glow to the skin that is natural and dewy but not fake looking. This glow is semi light-deflecting.
OTHER ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
In addition to the 20% Vitamin C, this serum contains the following anti-aging skin care superheroes:
Organic rosehip oil gives a glow to the skin. It is a natural source of Vitamin E and is suitable for even the driest, most sensitive skin. It contains powerful antioxidants such as lycopene and beta-carotene. These antioxidants remove toxins and improve skin texture. Visible results can be seen especially quickly on sun damaged skin.
Organic sea buckthorn oil can immediately reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines because it plumps up the skin. As previously mentioned, its’ contains many nutrients which have a variety of skin care applications including soothing the redness of sun damage, nourishing skin, providing C and E, and serving as a super-anti-oxidant.
Green tea extract reduces inflammation and is soothing, allowing active ingredients to do their job without excessive irritation to the skin.
Hyaluronic acid holds an exceptional amount of moisture to plump the skin and make it appear dewy and hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent ingredient in a Vitamin C serum because it can draw the C deep into the skin. This results in the formation of collagen at a deeper level, which means less sagging and fewer wrinkles, as well as the fading of areas of deep dark discoloration due to sun damage, redness, and scarring.
Resistem is plant stem cells. Stem Cells are frequently used in anti-aging skin care products because they enable some stage of the collagen production process.
CONCLUSION: an efficient combination of natural ingredients that are rarely found in a Vitamin C serum, these ingredients are especially helpful for sensitive skin types who could use some gentle reparative ingredients.
