I'm a big believer in serums as an integral step in my skincare regimen as they usually contain a higher concentration of active ingredients to help address certain skin concerns. I was thrilled when I had the chance to try out this Valentia Even Glow Serum which claims to repair, refresh, renew and restore evenness to your skin.

My Impressions: I've been on a lucky roll with not having any reactions with new skincare products lately so this serum had a smooth transition into my routine. It is a yellow orange color with a light natural citrus scent and the consistency of a viscous lotion. I've been applying it twice a day in between my toner and moisturizers. The product absorbs easily with a smooth finish and wears just fine under my moisturizer, BB cream and sunscreen during the day. After a little more than a week and a half of use, I can already see a slight improvement in the smoothness and clarity of my skin. However I was most impressed by how this seemed to help clear a breakout that I was on the verge of getting. It kind of just went away and that was pretty cool. Given the results I've experienced so far, I plan on continuing use of this serum. I can feel good about using this as an antioxidant treatment knowing that the natural ingredients are positively benefiting my skin and I wouldn't mind some continued improvement as well.
