Vitamin C 20%
"Antioxidant treatment to brighten, protect and even skin tone, reducing the appearance of aging"

They say you should start aging treatment once you hit 20 years old as a preventative measurement. I agree. Although the term "preventive" is quite a specific - it is impossible to prevent the normal process of life. Everything ages, BUT why not slow down the process or even just hide it. 


98% Natural Ingredients (see below for a description of our Key Ingredients chosen specifically to enhance Vitamin C efficacy on the skin)

EVENS SKIN TONE: Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration with this new generation Vitamin C Serum. Quickly refresh uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.

Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.

Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance. This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling or cracked skin, even in extreme weather.

The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance.

Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger.


Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles.

In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin. 

***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C's effect on the skin. 

ORGANIC ROSEHIP SEED OIL & ORGANIC SEA BUCKTHORN OIL - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C

RESISTEM (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.

HYALURONIC ACID(Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion

GREEN TEA EXTRACT- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.


Now,  My words:

I believe when it comes to skin care - you REALLY need to test it out for a long period of time because sometimes the skin needs time to get used to the product or sometimes you just need a long period of time to see results SO, I am considering this review kind of as a "first impression" review because I've only used it for maybe a week (by the time I publish this post).

First thing that I noticed was the smell of the serum. I'm not a huge fan of the citrus smell in anything so I was a bit turned off by that.

I've been trying this out since last Wednesday (8/6/2014) and I've noticed my skin being smoother after application and very moisturizing! I used this after I wash my face with Shesideo Pure cleanser and then applying my Sheseido pure toner and I add on my moisturizer once the seurm sets and dries. I really did notice how quickly the serum gets absorbed in your skin. 

Texture is really smooth and applies on your face very well and absorbs quickly.. I use about 2 pea sizes for the morning and then 3 pea sizes at night and it sufficient enough to cover your entire face. 

One set back for me personally (in general) I have SUPER sensitive and oily skin so just any product is difficult to use without breaking out.  I did break out a bit after starting to use the serum and I also feel as though my skin is a bit oily after an hour or two of application. I'm still trying out different combination to see if it is really this serum that is making my skin oily or a combination of this and certain foundations. I'll give an update once I finish with my experiment. But for now this his how my skin is taking it.

I wanted to try this out because it was 98% natural ingredients and you know alcohol free and paraben free is better for your skin.

So far I think I would recommend this to those with dry skin or maybe even combination, but not to those with really oily skin unless you are using this product at night.

Comparing it to one of my favorite serums, Ole Henriksen truth serum vitamin C Collagen Booster I would have to say the Ole Henriksen absorbs quicker and dries faster than this serum and I feel less oily. It is on the pricier side, so if you are looking for similar serum, VALENTIA: EVEN GLOW SERUM is definitely a good cheaper option.

I am going to continue using it for some time so maybe my skin can get used to it.

You can get their product on Amazon for $35.00 (Amazon Prime)
