They sent me two products to try True Glow Eye Cream  & Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. Which came at a good time because the weather in the North East has been a bit bi-polar but for the most party chilly.  I couldn’t wait to see how it would work because who doesn’t want glowing hydrated skin?

True Glow Eye Cream

ValentiaTrueGlow1

Benefits:

  • Diminish fine lines & wrinkles
  • Nourish & hydrate
  • Tighten the under eye area
  • Brighten dark circles
  • Reduce puffiness

Ingredients that make it work:

  • 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.

How to use:

Apply twice a day, morning & night, on cleansed skin. Since the skin under your eye is delicate use your ring finger to apply. Use patting motions.

My thoughts:

A light weight formula that spreads easily. This cream has an orange tint to it but goes on translucent. I’m sure this also helps brighten up your eye area and helps give you that glow. I don’t have an issue with dark circles or wrinkles but do like do use this cream because of the beneficial ingredients that help nourish the delicate skin under my eyes. I did notice while using the pump even if you try to slightly push a lot of product does come out. I’m not sure if its because its new so I need to wear it in a little bit more or if thats just how the pump is. No biggie but if you do get this , try to slightly press down. A full pump will be too much. It leaves the skin under your eyes smooth & soft. It also does make make up pill once you put it on top.

Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask

 Benefits:

  • Boosts collagen production
  • Increases skin radiance
  • Reduces fine lines
  • Locks in skins moisture
  • Reveals softer smoother skin

 

Ingredients that make it work:

  • 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.

How to use:

Apply to face avoiding eye area. Leave on for 15-30 minutes. Use a damp warm cloth to remove. Tingling sensation is normal.

My thoughts:

The first things I noticed when I opened the jar is the mango yellow/orange color and then  the texture & consistency. It’s sort of like jello….it wiggles! Next is the smell, I’m not sure what exactly what it is but I like it, it’s very pleasant & somewhat familiar. I just can’t put my finger on it. It was easy to apply  and I did feel a little tingling sensation , which is normal , for about 5-10 minutes after applying. It wasn’t bothersome. As it dries, your face doesn’t get tight so you can still move your face. Once it dried its orange like color, it sort of looks like a bad fake tan lol.  Usually I just splash warm water on my face and massage it off but for this mask its much easier to take a damp warm cloth to wipe it off. It left my skin feeling really smooth & does look healthy. I’ve only used this a couple of times so haven’t noticed that much of a difference in my skin yet. I will continue to use this.
