Hi all! Today I’m reviewing a new moisturizer by Valentia Natural, the Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer. I have had skin issues and acne my whole life—chronic dry skin, a field of blackheads, oily skin, the works. Recently, a combination of cold cream, twice-daily moisturizing, and a couple of dermatologist-recommended products have made a huge difference, but because I’m perpetually on a budget, I hardly stray from drugstore moisturizers. Until Valentia Natural. Keep reading to hear more about their Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer.
My acne + combination/weird skin means that I constantly have to moisturize, hence the cold cream. I also use a dedicated moisturizer once in the morning and once before bed, so I was hesitant to change up my tried-and-true skin regimen. But I must say, Valentia Natural not only seamlessly replaced my previous moisturizer without breakouts or issue, but it’s also a much better alternative than my drugstore lotion because of all the amazing ingredients in this product.
- Botanical Hyaluronic Acid: Floods skin with moisture, supports skin elasticity, and plumps skin from within.
- Kojic Acid: Controls melanin production and prevents dark spots.
- Ginseng: Boosts skin firming collagen, fights wrinkles, and gives the skin a brighter and more energized look.
- Safflower Oil: Repairs skin’s natural moisture barrier and provide superior skin protection.
- Shea Butter: Infuses skin with a myriad of vitamins and nutrients for superior skin hydration and nourishment.
The shea butter really comes through, and it smells amazing. Valentia Natural, as its name suggests, is made from natural ingredients that are organic-based, paraben-free, and toxin-free. This Pure Glow Moisturizer is meant to lighten dark spots, even skin tone, diminish fine lines, and provide all-day hydration. I cannot speak to the claim about dark spots and the lines, as I don’t currently have either, but I can say this moisturizer definitely gave my skin the hydration it needs without clogging it up, and I did notice my skin was brighter and more even. Works for me!
Oh, and “Valentia” is apparently the Roman goddess of healing. I like a bit of mythology with my skincare. 🙂 Get the Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer on Amazon for $25, and while you’re here, feel free to check out their website, Instagram, and Facebook.
If you’re in the market for a new moisturizer and have combination, acne-prone skin like me, I’d recommend this one!
