Valentia: Royal Rose Hydrating Serum*

For Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum*

What it is:

A hydrating serum that deeply moisturizes skin, provides antioxidant protection, soothes and nourishes dry skin, smooths skin tone and texture, and boosts skin radiance.

Key Ingredients:

rose, aloe leaf juice, botanical hyaluronic acid, witch hazel, vitamin B3, jojoba oil, Vitamin E, rosehip seed oil, evening primrose oil, bearberry, rose absolute, chamomile extract, lavender extract, mullein, Reishi, gotu kola,

How it feels/smells/looks:

It is a white lotion that sinks quickly into the skin. I use two pumps at night and one pump in the morning to cover my face. I use one pump in the morning, because it sinks in quicker with less product. The two pumps takes about 5 minutes to really sink it. My mornings need to be quick and my evenings can be pampering. This part of both routines. It is both quick and pampering. It smells of Rose and those who love Lush’s Rose Jam will love the scent of this product as well. I am not a fan of the scent, but it vanishes when the product sinks into the skin. It isn’t a lingering scent. Sometimes, I do enjoy the scent, but most times, I just find it too rosy. It feels amazing on the skin. It is very soothing and cool. I feel like it plumps up my skin a bit as well. My skin has been on the normal/dry side lately. I don’t really have oily skin anymore since having the baby. My skin has been drier. This hydrates my dry areas and leaves me with smooth skin.

Why I Love It:

I can see myself buying this when I run out. It is actually a Holy Grail item for me, while my skin is behaving more dry. This could clear up after breast feeding and my skin could go back to being oily. This product has really helped my skin be more normal and not as dry. I’m not oily anymore, so I don’t have that natural radiance anymore. I’ve been using highlighters everyday to give my face a glow. This product makes my face look healthy, but not glowy. This product has also cured the little bit of acne that was creeping up from being too tired to wash my face at times and from hormones. The witch hazel is great for acne and so is rose. I’m really enjoying this product that I have been using for two weeks now. It’s not really expensive at 35 USD, so I will be purchasing once I run out. I don’t want to be without it! And really, other high end products sell their serum for that much or more for a fluid ounce.
