It’s absolutely no secret that I am a huge fan of serums, especially Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. Serums have become a huge part of my skin care routine and have been essential in my youthful appearance. One of my favorite serums comes from Valentia. The Valentia Even Glow Serum Vitamin C 20% Antioxidant Treatment was added to my skin routine about a year ago and is still one of my favorites to use.
The Valentia Even Glow Serum Vitamin C 20% (1.18 fl oz / 35mL) retails for $35 though the Valentia site and their Amazon store. This serum smells like oranges and citrus which I love but I have to be careful to only use this serum in the morning since the citrus scent seems to keep me wide awake. If I use this serum at night, then I tend to have a hard time falling asleep.
While this serum is a tad bit stickier than most (kind of reminding me of the sticky you can get from orange juice), it still soaks into my skin quickly and does not leave the sticky feeling behind. This serum is liquid like and application onto the face is comfortable and easy.
I have used this serum off and on now for the last year and have purchased several vials since it’s been such a favorite of mine. I have noticed my skin is brighter after using it just a few days and smoother. This serum offers me an increase in hydration which I really need, especially during winter months – since my skin is so dry. Offering Hyaluronic Acid to help repair the skin, retain moisture and increase elasticity and firmness, this serum provides me with the key essentials I love in serums.

Because this product includes natural ingredients they may separate while sitting. By shaking lightly for 1-2 seconds before use, your serum will be ready to use and the ingredients will be well combined. Applying a small amount to your face and neck / decollete daily will leave your skin looking vibrant and bright. I apply this serum before I apply my daily moisturizer. Overall – I think this will remain a favorite for years to come and I think anyone would enjoy it. Head on over to the Valentia Skin Care website to learn more about this product and more that they offer or stop by their Amazon store to purchase.
