Hi everyone! Fall is in full swing and I’m looking forward to the upcoming holiday season! I have unwillingly taken a break from blogging while I getting over a cold-this crazy weather didn’t help! However, the upside is that I had more time to test the product that I’m reviewing today! Valentia Skin Care has a new product: the Night Revive Retinol Serum!
Here is the product description from valentia.com:
“A potent blend of Retinol, with essential vitamins and botanicals specifically chosen to enhance Retinol’s efficacy work together to create the serum your skin care dreams are made of. Retinol works down to the cellular level to stimulate collagen production and diminish even the deepest of wrinkles. Vitamin C helps Retinol penetrate deeper into the skin, while Vitamin E and Squalane nourish and hydrate, counteracting the drying effects of Retinol and maximizing anti-aging benefits. This transformative retinol serum will turn back the clock, giving you visibly smoother, rejuvenated skin.”
After testing this product for several weeks, I have only good things to say about it!
First of all, as someone with sensitive skin, not only does it not irritate my skin, it actually helps my skin recover from irritation! My evening skincare routine is too cleanse and apply toner, then moisturize- I also exfoliate 3 times a week. I’ve noticed that when my skin seems a little irritated and red after cleansing, the next morning the irritation vanishes if I apply the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum. Needless to say, I am now applying this serum every night!
I also like that it’s a nighttime serum, because I prefer to apply retinol at night since it can increase sensitivity to sunlight. According to the directions “Apply nightly to cleanse face and décolleté, before moisturizer. If irritation occurs, use every 2-3 night until skin adjusts. Use an SPF moisturizer during the day time”
Another bonus is the applicator, which I love because it makes it easy to control the amount of serum I want to use on different parts of my face.
