One of my biggest complaints about many moisturizers, and the reason I didn’t use to apply them as often as I should have, is that too often they left my face shiny as if I had just come back from a run or the gym. I hated it so much that it put me off wearing moisturizer at all if I was about to put on make up and run out the door during my teen years.
Now that I’m older, I’ve come the realization that it is a matter of finding the right product for your skin, and I’m sure my face thanks me for no longer shunning this important pre-makeup step.
My experience with Valentia’s Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer has been the opposite from all the moisturizers my younger self tried. I am in love with this product and despite having several kinds of products in my bathroom, I grab this one more often than any other.
It’s pretty much granted to say that the moisturizing part of the product is outstanding and leaves my face super soft, but what has won me over is how light and fast-absorbing this amazing cream is. I can apply my makeup just moments later without any greasy feeling, and it doesn’t affect how it sets, so it doesn’t make it run at all!
As if that weren’t enough, I love that Valentia is all natural, free of toxins and, also paraben-free. All super important for me!
Try it out and let me know what you think?
One of my last year’s new year intentions that I’m still keeping is to take better care of myself, so I’ll be sharing some tips and product reviews as part of this effort. (I received free samples for this review, but my opinion is, as always, my own.)
