So today I'm reviewing Even Glow Serum - Antioxidant Skin Treatment with 20% Vitamin C by Valentia Skin Care . So First off my face is a mess dark spots like the ones you get when you are pregnant (no i'm not) it's caused by birth control, and my face is sensitive so I was unsure if i could even use it but i did. Let me just say I am in love with the scent it smells like oranges and I love that it's made in the USA. So I'm I am going to copy and paste some of the information from their product page then post what I thought about each claim it has so lets get started.
> EVENS SKIN TONE:
Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration, replacing uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.
< I have noticed that my dark spots have faded they are not gone but I think using this longer than two weeks may fade them completely.
> INCREASES GLOW & RADIANCE:
Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.
< I did notice my face was brighter after a couple uses and smoother except for my acne.
> ABSORBS RAPIDLY:
Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance. This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling or cracked skin, even in extreme weather.
< It does absorb quickly and my face isn't dry and it does feel softer.
> BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION:
The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance.
> Like I said previously my face is smoother not sure about sagging yet haven't used it long enough yet.
> REDUCES WRINKLES & FINE LINES:
Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger.
So there is their claim and what I've seen in the short time I have been using Even Glow Serum. I will buy it for my dark spots even if it don't work for fine lines But I'm still hoping it will work for the lines. Check out my before and after photos.....
