I was provided a sample from Brandbacker and Valentia Skin Care, none the less all opinions are my own.
First let me just tell you this stuff smells amazing! I thought of an orange grove as soon as I smelled it, a very refreshing smell.
The packaging is very attractive as well, it comes in a little white box with gold trim, the bottle inside is a brown glass bottle with a dropper, the bottle is dark in order to help protect from sunlight as the light will break down the ingredients. The dropper makes it very easy to use and allows for just the right amount to be dispensed for the face and neck.
It contains some great ingredients such as 20% Vitamin C, Rosehip Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea Extract, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Resistem (Plant Stem Cells).
I did not find the serum to be greasy or sticky on my face.
Here are the benefits as listed on the Valentia Skin Care site.
EVENS SKIN TONE: Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration, replacing uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.
INCREASES GLOW & RADIANCE: Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and radiant. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.
ABSORBS RAPIDLY: 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.
BOOST COLLAGEN PRODUCTION: The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil 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.
REDUCES WRINKLES & FINE LINES: Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Sea Buckthorn oil plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger.
I have noticed a wonderful new feeling to my skin glow and tone as well as softness. I am thrilled to continue to use the serum in hopes of getting rid of the fine lines around my eyes and forehead. I used the serum twice a day, in the morning and at night after washing face and before moisturizing. You need to be sure to shake the product prior to use as it does separate a bit.
You will need to keep the bottle in a cool dry place and remember to slightly shake before using. Would I recommend this product to others? Absolutely, I have noticed a softer, more even glowing face.
