Review! Valentia Even Glow Serum - Vitamin C 20%

Leave a Comment
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

If you enjoy watching dermatologists giving skincare advice on YouTube as much as I do, then you already know that vitamin C is incredibly important for maintaining beautiful looking skin. Today, I am pleased to review the Valentia Even Glow Serum Vitamin C 20%. This serum can be purchased on Amazon for $35.


Claims:
The company claims that this serum:

  • evens skin tone
  • increases glow and radiance
  • absorbs rapidly
  • boosts collagen production
  • reduces wrinkles and fine lines. 


Packaging:
Before I get into whether this serum does what is claims, let's talk packaging.

  • The Even Glow Serum comes in a 1.18 fl oz/35 ml amber glass bottle with a dropper. It is very important for any vitamin C serum to be packaged in amber glass because vitamin C is very unstable and photosensitive. Light will actually damage the product. 
  • You get a little more product than the standard 1 fl oz/30 ml.
  • The product was shipped to me in a secure envelope. Nothing was damaged, but the box was a little crumpled. I'm not keeping the box after I post this review, so it's all good!

My serum
Application:

  • The directions say that the product can separate, so make sure to shake it a little before you apply. I haven't noticed the product separating, though.
  • Apply after you wash your face, before your moisturizer. Day or night.
  • A little goes a long way, and you only need a couple of drops for your entire face.
  • This has a thin consistency (because it's a serum) with an orange color and a citrus smell.
  • Dries very quickly.


Results:
I'll start by saying that I did see quick results with this serum. After only a couple of days, my complexion looked bright. My face looked as if I had gotten extra sleep, but I did not. Let's see how it stood up to the claims!

  • Evens skin tone - Yes! The first thing I noticed was that my skin looked more even. Some of my post-acne marks are starting to fade.
  • Increases glow & radiance - Yes! I feel as if this is already covered under "evens skin tone," but my face looked brighter, like I had a good night's rest.
  • Absorbs rapidly - It seems to do so. It dries very quickly, so you don't have to wait long before you can apply moisturizer.
  • Boosts collagen production - According to dermatologists, vitamin C does help collagen production, which prevents sagging. 
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines - My skin feels very hydrated and plump when I use this serum, but I cannot tell how much it's reducing wrinkles.


Final Thoughts:
I really like Valentia Even Glow Serum! I use it both day and night. In the morning, I apply it under my moisturizer with an SPF. At night, I like to use this by itself because my skin is starting to get a bit oily due to the warmer weather. This serum is hydrating on its own for people with oily skin, but if you have dry skin you will need to use a moisturizer. I definitely recommend that you consider giving the Valentia Even Glow Serum a try if you have hyperpigmentation. I noticed a difference in this reducing dark spots for me.

What are your thoughts? Have you tried a vitamin C serum? Did you notice any difference in your skin?

I love hearing from you!
