Valentia has stolen my skin care loving heart with their various products that I have tried over the last couple of years. Each time I try something new, I think to myself – this can’t possibly be any better than what I already tried, and they amaze me yet again. Today I share with you my thoughts on a product that is surely meant for my sensitive skin. It’s gentle and feels really nice on and I’ve been absolutely loving it lately. The Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum is a new addition to my skin care regimen and while it is not something I think I would have liked when I first laid my eyes on it – I was very surprised after just one use.
The Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum ($35.00 – 1.18 Fl.oz. / 35mL) looks like any other Valentia Serum in a similar packaged bottle and pump to dispense the product. It’s formulated to deeply moisturize your skin while providing antioxidant protection and soothe and nourish dry skin. Since I naturally have dry skin – this product has been wonderful and feels fabulous against my face.
The serum is lightweight and while very hydrating, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky or dewy but feeling moisturized. It’s specifically crafted with rose petals from the fragrant Damask Rose – an essential oil that has been long regarded as being more precious than gold for its natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. While this is its main ingredient, it is also formulated with other skin loving oils like: Bearberry, Lavender and Primrose to help soothe and brighten your skin. This product is the perfect serum to help nourish, calm and cool your skin for a more refreshed and youthful look and feel – while leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated.
After just one use, I noticed my skin retained its moisture through out the day and my skin tone and texture was smooth and skin radiant. It left me loving this product after using it just one time and I know like other Valentia products, I will continue to purchase it in the future.
- Rosa Damascena: One of the most nourishing and skin-friendly natural oils, providing balance, moisture, and a variety of vitamins and minerals to the skin.
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B): This potent vitamin has been clinically proven to fade away hyper-pigmentation, sun spots, and acne.
- Rosehip Seed Oil: Naturally rich in Vitamins C and A, these essential fatty acids work quickly to lock in skins moisture.
- Evening Primrose Oil: Provides light, non-oily moisture to the skin, never clogging or irritating the skin.
- Bearberry: Reduces melanin production, thereby lightening the skin, revealing a brighter complexion.
Application: I usually apply 1-2 pumps to my face and neck in the evening after I cleanse and before I moisturize. I tend to apply it when applying any of my other serums. 1-2 pumps is more than enough to cover my whole face and neck, and it will soak into your skin fairly quickly once you apply and work into your skin. I haven’t noticed any bunching or weird reactions with this product when used in combination with my other serums or skin care.
I love the creamy, cooling texture of this product but I didn’t expect to really like the scent. As many know (if you have been a follower of this blog), I have fragrance sensitivities and rose scents usually come into that category with floral scents that I struggle with. I didn’t have any issues with this and while it may be because I’ve been sick the last few weeks and can’t smell much of anything lately, I didn’t really smell a fragrance from this serum. That is a major plus for me because that meant “no sneezing” especially in the middle of the night since this is a nightly serum. Overall, I have really been loving how this feels on the skin, how nicely it soaks into my skin and the fact that it not only hydrates and moisturizes, but I didn’t have any adverse reactions or issues.
In the past where I have reviewed or talked about Valentia products, I have mentioned how gentle they have been for my sensitive skin and this was no exception. I especially love that it is formulated with Sensitive Skin users in mind and really left my skin feeling nice, smooth and soft. Used in combination with my other favorite skin care products, I know that this will continue to be one in my skin arsenal and I’ll continue to enjoy it.
