I love skincare. It’s not as popular as new makeup or clothes because there isn’t that instant gratification but I love knowing that I’m taking care of my skin. I really like the ritual at the end of the night of washing my face and applying serums, moisturizers, and masks. It’s calming and a great way to start to relax before bed. I recently got the chance to try the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask and True Glow Eye Cream from Valentia, a brand that focuses on using natural ingredients like berries, herbs, and barks to create effective products. I love masks of any kind but hydrating masks are one of my favorites and I’ve yet to find an eye cream I love so I was excited to try these products.
The Valentia Hydration Mask contains a blend of silk protein amino acids and botanical hyaluronic acid along with Japanese green tea, aloe vera, and rosehip seed oil. This mask is designed to provide intense hydration and nourishment to create a more luminous complexion with softer skin. It boosts collagen production to increase skin radiance and reduce fine lines. This is a little different than the usual leave-on hydration masks that I use. The Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask is applied and then washed off after 15-30 minutes.
I was surprised by the bright mustard shade of this mask. It’s so fun compared to normal white masks, I really liked it. The thick texture is kind of a combination of pudding and jello. It reminded me a lot of my Esthetic House Collagen Jelly Mask Pack, although they are quite different once applied. The Valentia Hydration Mask went on light and had a slight tingling feel to it. As I wore it, it got drier and tighter feeling, almost like a mud mask. But when I rinsed this off, my skin felt so soft and hydrated. My skin looked bright and refreshed immediately after only one use. I hated the medicinal smell of this mask but I really liked how it made my skin look.
The Valentia True Glow Eye Cream contains powerful antioxidants to lock in moisture and repair and tighten skin for a youthful glow. Antioxidants, plant stem cells, vitamin C, and rosehip oil work together to reduce wrinkles, brighten dark circles, and restore radiance. It’s hard for me to find eye creams that I like because most of them are too thick and leave me with milia so I usually end up using my normal facial moisturizer on my eyes. The True Glow Eye Cream is supposed to absorb quickly instead of leaving your skin greasy so I was looking forward to using it.
The eye cream is also a fun color but this is more of a peach shade. I like how the eye cream bottle looks but it’s difficult to get just a tiny amount out without squirting it all over the place. This eye cream feels so nice and light on but it’s still hydrating and I don’t feel that I need any additional moisturizer. I haven’t used it enough to notice any of the bigger effects like a reduction of wrinkles or a brightening of dark circles but I really like how this eye cream feels. It doesn’t irritate my eyes at all and I really like the natural ingredients.
I’m really happy with the Valentia Hydration Mask and Eye Cream. The product colors are fun and the packaging looks and feels super luxe. The Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask leaves my skin looking bright and radiant and feeling soft and hydrated. I hate the smell but I can get past it for how good this make my skin look. The True Glow Eye Cream is light but moisturizing and I’m looking forward to seeing how it makes my eyes look over time. I love the natural ingredients and how effective they are. I definitely recommend checking these products out (especially the Valentia Hydration Mask, it’s perfect for winter)!
