VALENTIA Review: True Glow Eye Cream & Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask + DISCOUNT CODE

Hello Everyone!
I have so many reviews I am working on right now. Two thanks to Brandbacker and a couple of things I either picked up or got for Christmas. So let's get started! This is a new brand to the blog so first I will tell you a little bit about it. I know I like to learn about a brand before making a purchase. *Discount code at the very bottom*

Valentia is named after the Roman Goddess of healing Valentia. She used berries, herbs, barks and other natural ingredients to heal the citizens of Umbria. Like their namesake, Valentia Skin Care products are formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that can help repair and protect the skin. They performed extensive research to determine what skin care customers find most important. There was an overwhelming demand for skin care that was natural, free of toxins, and paraben free. Natural ingredients with an organic base are the most effective at repairing damage from the sun or wind, and preventing the signs of aging like wrinkles and dark spots.


About The Product
It is a luxurious antioxidant rich eye cream that helps lock in moisture, repair and tighten skin for a youthful looking glow around the eye area.
Some Ingredients
 - Astaxanthin: A powerful antioxidant that increases moisture levels, smooths fine line and wrinkles, and restores elasticity to the skin.

- Resistem: Natural Plant Stem Cells repair and protect the skin from harsh environmental pollutants and stress related aging.

- Vitamin C: Leaves the skin smooth and visibly brighter for a well-rested and bright eyed look.

- Organic Rosehip Oil: Provides intense hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

- Arnica: A key anti-inflammatory agent to the restorative process that works to diminish the appearance of dark circles.

First impressions
  • I really like the packaging of the box and bottle. I like the gold trim I think it adds a touch of elegance to it. I really like that the product comes in a glass bottle and I am able to see how much product I have. The pump is really nice. I would say it's a decent sized bottle, with eye cream a little goes a long way.
  • This product has a really nice scent. It's hard to describe since there are so many different things in it. My dad and I both agreed it kind of has a citrusy scent. 
  • It's a nice light eye cream. I only need about half a pump and that's enough for both eyes. The directions say to apply it every morning and night after cleansing and to apply it by gently patting it on.
  • As I have said before on the blog I am 22 so I don't have any wrinkles yet, but I do like to use products that can help prevent it. I will admit I am not always gentle when it comes to the eye area. I definitely like the way it feels on my skin. The days I don't get very good sleep I make sure I use it.
  • It is $25 for 1.18 fl. oz. it does come in a glass bottle. You are also paying for good quality ingredients. When I use it it's only once a day with half a pump of product so I won't run out any time soon.
  • You can buy the eye cream on their website or on Amazon.


About The product
It is a blend of amino acids and hyaluronic acid that work together to flood the skin with moisture providing intense hydration and nourishment.

Some Ingredients
 - Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend:These natural miracles increase moisture content and help in the production of collagen and elastin which decreases the appearance of visible lines.
- Botanical Hyaluronic Acid:Penetrates deep into the skin to secure moisture and plump skin from within.

- Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil:An anti-aging wonder berry that results in fewer fine lines, diminished sun spots, more even skin tone, and firmer more supple skin.

- Japanese Green Tea:Contains catechins that provide anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-irritant effects to the skin.

- Aloe Vera:This botanical moisturizers skin and fight aging by improving skin firmness.

First Impressions
  • It obviously has the same pretty gold edges on the packaging. I will say the plastic container is kind of a disappointment after the eye cream's glass container.
  • It doesn't smell exactly like the eye cream but it's very similar. I just wouldn't say it has a citrusy scent to it. When I have the mask on it doesn't bother me at all.
  • It has a very smooth creamy gel like texture. I've never had a mask like it before. I'm not sure if it's because of the aloe vera or the hyaluronic acid. It feels really refreshing on the skin.
  • Apply a thin layer to the skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. You will feel a slight tingle. Use a damp cloth and warm water to remove.
  • It really feels nice on the skin. Once I take it off my skin feels really nice and soft. It's the kind of mask that is gentle enough you can use it as often as you need it. I use it maybe every other day or two. I constantly forget it's a plumping hydration mask and not a mask for acne. So far I think it definitely helps with skin radiance.
  • It is $25 for 4 fl. oz. so that is a decent amount of product. I know I will have this product for a while. 
  • You can buy the hydration mask on their website or on Amazon.

I hope everyone enjoyed this review! Valentia was nice enough to give everyone a 20% discount on any of their products. The code activates the 17th and will expire a month after. Here is the code   YZ4OOIFU

* I recieved these products complimentary from the brand to test and review for my honest opinion.
