I get a lot of product review requests and most end up in the recycle bin (weight loss tea, anyone?), but this product caught my attention as I am getting older! My skin has always been on the oily side, but seems to be normalizing as I get older, and probably will continue heading on to dry skin, I imagine. I was provided a bottle of Even Glow Vitamin C Serum by Valentia Skin Care for review. (Valentia Skin Care Amazon Link)
The Even Glow Serum is supposed to hydrate the skin, reduce wrinkles, and even skin tone. I have been using this daily in the morning for about a month now right out of the shower.
This is a decent sized bottle, just a shade over 1 ounce:
Here is the ingredient list: KEY INGREDIENTS – 1.18 oz. 20% VITAMIN C, ORGANIC ROSEHIP OIL, ORGANIC SEA BUCKTHORN OIL, RESISTEM (PLANT STEM CELLS), HYALURONIC ACID(BOTANICAL), GREEN TEA EXTRACT. Made in the USA!
For some reason, I had an idea that serum mean oily, so I was expecting an oily product, but this is not at all. It is an opaque thick liquid. It has a really light grapefruit smell from the grapefruit essential oil, which I loved. That’s my favorite part – the scent.
Here is what it looks like:
A little goes a long way. I really only needed 4 drops of the above size to do my whole face . My skin felt nice and soft after using it. Seems like this bottle will last a long time, which makes $35 seem not too bad. In a month I have maybe used 1/4 of the bottle if that.
I have a bit of redness to my cheeks and I think this product may be evening that out some. I don’t notice too much as far as wrinkle improvement because honestly I don’t have too many wrinkles for a 46-year-old, other than my forehead wrinkle (affectionately called “The Divot” by John and I). It also did not make me break out. My skin will break out at the drop of a hat, so I don’t like to try new stuff on my face very often, but this didn’t cause any problems.
So, all in all – I actually like this product, again especially for the scent. I am a sucker for anything citrus.
