Hey gals! I hope your week is going well! I’m still settling into the dry heat here in Dallas. This Maryland girl is used to humidity! The first time I ever saw a cactus was in San Antonio and I just about flipped, I thought it was the coolest thing! In the same moment I noticed that the ground was cracked open. Such a bizarre thing to see for someone who grew up by the water! With all this dry heat, my skin has suffered and gets flaky throughout the day. My skin is also sensitive, so I have to be careful with moisturizers. Luckily, I tried Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer and it worked wonders on my skin!
Like I said, my skin is sensitive! When I first tried the moisturizer, I was a little nervous. It doesn’t take much for my skin to itch and burn from a simple ingredient. I was pleasantly surprised when my skin felt good and dare I say, happy? The moisturizing ingredients are paraben free (parabens are a kind of makeup preservative) and can even be pronounced! Things like ginseng and shea butter are in this product!
The process of putting it on is simple: Put it on before your makeup or before you go to bed (or both if your skin is extra dry). If you want the full Valentia regiment, use the cleansing and toning serums. I love that it’s a cream and not an oil or butter-like paste. A little goes a long way too, which I appreciate as beauty products can empty the pocket book pretty fast!
Anytime I’ve ever gone into a beauty store and bought a skincare item, the salespeople always ask me if I have a good moisturizer. That’s how important skincare is. Makeup can’t work wonders without a good base to start with. Taking care of our skin is so important to keep it healthy and looking nice!
