Yes you read that correctly; Vitamin C for your face. We all know that Vitamin C is so important for your body. It plays a big part for our immune system. It is now popping up in all kinds of skin care as well. There is good reason for that. When applied to your skin, Vitamin C has been known the reduce and even reverse the signs of aging. I was so lucky to get a bottle of this magic serum for free, so I could share it with all of you!!
This is one of those products that I have wanted to try for a while now. But with a price tag of $35, I have not jumped onto the bandwagon. It is a big chunk of change for this stay at home mama. Until someone I knew tried it first, aka being a guinea pig with their money, I was not going to rush out to get it. That is why I was so excited when I heard that Valentia was giving away a few bottles for beauty bloggers to sample. I knew that I HAD to be one of those bloggers.
Even Glow Serum has some of the biggest promises on the market. It is an antioxidant treatment that is applied to your clean and dry face. According to the box it promises to: even skin tone, increase glow and radiance, absorb quickly, boast collagen production, and last (but the biggest one for me) reduce wrinkles & fine lines. After two weeks, I can tell you that it lives up to almost all of those. I would tell you that it lives up to all of them, but I have no way to determine if it has boasted my collagen production. Even in the short amount of time that I have used it, I have noticed that my little lines are reducing, my skin is so soft and glows. It is a syrupy in texture, so not quite liquid. There is some substance to it. It is yellowish in color, and completely smooth. For the me the biggest point is the smell. It simply smells amazing!! Like oranges.
Now that you know about how amazing this anti-aging serum is, lets go over the basics about how to use it. Cause I know that I actually had to look into HOW to use one. Never having a serum in my routine before I was a bit intimidated, but let me assure you it is super easy.
You are going to want to clean your face. While we all like those handy makeup removing wipes, I find that this absorbs more quickly and gives me a better application when I actually go old school and wash my face with a gentle cleanser.
Pat dry your face. There is no reason to have a layer of water covering your face before applying this. Not only will it take forever to get into your skin, you will end up using more.
Be sure to shake the bottle for a moment or two before using. Since it is an all natural treatment, it does tend to separate a bit.
You only need 3 drops to cover your entire face. Yup, only three drops. I use the dropper to put one drop on each of my cheeks and one on my forehead. Then rub in.
This serum does not replace your moisturizer. It is an added step to your routine. So once you rub it into your skin, you will still need to apply your moisturizer as normal.
That’s it! Super easy, super quick and major benefits. Do you guys use a serum? What are your thoughts?
