Ultra Plumping Hydration MaskI was skeptical about using this mask but I was pleasantly surprised. This mask is golden yellow in color and is lightly scented. The consistency reminds me like the one of a (banana) pudding which was not very appealing to me, but I was willing to give it a try because of the of the scent and the natural ingredients it has. This mask contains a mix of natural ingredients like the Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend: Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil, Japanese Green Tea and Aloe Vera. My face felt tingly and had a cooling sensation while having it on my face which was kind of soothing. However, the mask felt somewhat sticky by the end.
Cleanup was simple and required only a damp cloth and warm water to remove it after 15-30 minutes of application. The first night I used it, I didn't notice much or maybe didn't pay attention to how my face felt but the next morning I definitely noticed that my face was smoother, softer and moisturized. I am using it twice a week at night time after washing my face and I can see a noticeable difference. I have oily skin and I am also glad that it has caused any breakouts which is a major concern for me. I also love that it helps boost your collagen production and decrease signs of aging. The packaging needs improvement though (not the box but the container) as it does not look like a quality product, it is very simple.
True Glow Eye Cream
The eye cream doesn't feel greasy or sticky which is a big plus. It does have a slight citrus scent, but it's not overpowering. It absorbs quickly in my skin and with no residue. The texture is not thick and it has like a peachy/light orange color. I like that the bottle had a pump and it gave me a perfect amount of cream to apply.
I use this cream both in the morning before applying my make-up and in the evening after cleansing my skin right before going to bed. Unfortunately, this eye cream did not lighten/reduce my dark circles at this time but it makes my eye area look refreshed. I will going to continue use for a while and try to see if there is any difference in a few weeks. I am in my late 30s and I do not have any wrinkles so I would not be able to say much about this, however it is always nice to prevent wrinkles. I like that the cream helps my eyes look fresh when I get up in the morning. While I haven't noticed any huge improvement with the dark circles, I have noticed that the skin around my eyes feels smoother and I can apply my makeup without any issues. Also, it doesn't make me break out or give me an allergic reaction.
I received a complimentary bottle of Valentia's True Glow Eye Cream and a jar of Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask in exchange for my honest review/opinion.
