Product Review – COL-LAB Cosmetics Line From Sally Beauty

COL-LAB Cosmetics

If you follow me over on Instagram then you already know that late last month I received a gift card from Sally Beauty. I decided the best way I could put this to use is to go pick up some of the new COL-LAB line and test it out for all of my readers.

In case you haven’t heard about COL-LAB yet, it is Sally Beauty’s latest beauty line. It launched just this November, so future reference that is November 2017. It was created in collaboration with several well know beauty influencers. In fact a couple of my favorites were involved, shout out to Dani from Coffee Break With Dani and Lizzy from What Would Lizzy Do. Eight different influencers were involved in this brands creations, each with different skin types and cosmetic preferences.

My goal when I went shopping was to pick up everything I needed to create a full face of makeup using just this brand. I did not include anything that I don’t do at least 50% of the time or more. For instance, brow product is not something I always use, so it was not included in my purchases. I also did not see an eyeshadow primer or setting spray in the store I purchased at, so I used my normal products for those.

So let’s take a look at what I got and my thoughts on each of the products.

COL-LAB Collection Makeup

1.  Palette Pro Eyeshadow Palette in Best of the Day – This is one of five options in an 8 color palette. I picked this particular color option because I felt it had the biggest variety in colors and thus offering the most options of looks. However you will notice that my picture looks a bit different from what is shown on the website. I think that my picture more accurately shows the colors.

Overall I thought these were definitely quality eyeshadows. I found the colors to be very pigmented. They applied well to the lid with little to no dust pick up. I was able to create a few decent eye makeup looks. However, I had some difficulty blending them. They seemed to set in place quickly. Even though I felt this color selection had the broadest selection of colors, I still felt a little limited in what I created. That is not anything bad against the palette itself, I am just not the kind of person that is prone to doing the same makeup look more than a time or two. So for me, I prefer a lot of colors as options. If you are someone who does their eye makeup pretty consistently the same then this would make a great palette for you.

I will share my favorite look I created at the end of this post.

2. Soft Spot Sheer Blush in Meet Cute – Meet cute is a unique color, or at least I think so. It is sort of a mix of a red and a mauve with some brown thrown in. This is one of six color options available in this blush. It is a sheer buildable blush.

The first time I dipped my brush into the blush, I really thought this was going to end up being too much of a color for me. Just with the smallest of dabs my brush had picked up a ton of powder. But I am happy to say that it lived up to its claim of being a sheer blush. In some ways it reminds me of a NARS blush.

3. Set The Stage Ultra-Fine Loose Setting Powder in Porcelain/Ivory – This is one of six color options in the setting powder. It is milled very fine and has a super soft texture. The package comes with a powder puff, however I personally would recommend using this with a powder brush.

I chose a shade lighter than my skin in this powder because I was concentrating what I used on setting my concealer under my eyes and I wanted to brighten that area. However my under eye area is also really dry, so it is usually challenging to set my under eye area without leaving it looking cakey. This setting powder worked wonderfully though. And after a little setting spray it was practically invisible. I was highly impressed.

4. Bold-Faced Liner Waterproof Eye Lining Pencil Drama Queen – This is one of six shades available in this eyeliner. The shades are all darker colors. They are all shades of blue, brown and black. Drama Queen, the one I chose, is a very dark true black.

This is waterproof, which is something I almost always want in an eye liner since I like to put them in my waterline most of the time. I would have like to see more color options, maybe a beige skin tone and bright pop of color or two, but perhaps they will be adding more things like this in the near future. I did think it applied beautifully, and the wear was good. It did not outshine my very favorite eyeliner, but it takes a very close second place.

5. The Filter Highlighting Powder in Glow For Gold – This is one of four color options for the Filter Highlighting Powder. It has a soft silky texture. It is meant to give the skin a soft glow.
This highlighter is way more subtle in use than it looks in the package. Maybe a little too subtle for my personal preferences. But again this is a personal preference thing. I don’t really own any other highlight to compare to this one. But rather than it having glitter or a sheen finish it felt more matte. I thought the texture was wonderful and it did blend it very easily and I really liked that. This would be a great highlight for those of you who want to highlight, but don’t necessarily want to have all the glow on your face.

6. No Flaws Cream Concealer in Ivory/Sand – This is one of eight options for colors in this cream concealer. It comes in a twist up stick. It is made to cover both under eye circles and uneven skin tone.

Let me say first that I have tried a lot of concealers in a lot of different forms, and I have had an extremely difficult time finding ones I thought worked well on my dry textured skin, especially right under my eye area. It always seemed like they would either look cakey, settle in the fine lines around my eyes, or be so watery that they wouldn’t cover any dark spots. This concealer however is my dream concealer. It glides on so soft and smooth. It is super lightweight that you can barely tell you have anything on. Not drying or cakey and covers beautifully. It has never settled in a line or creased. I can’t imagine anyone designing a better concealer. This just blew all of the other concealers in the world out of the water. Seriously, you need to try this.

7. Full Body Lipstick in Really?? – This full body lipstick comes in sixteen color options and two finish options. Really??, the color I have is a matte finish. These lipsticks are designed to go on in a cream and dry down to either the matte or satin finish.

I thought that it applied and wore well. The color applied in one even swipe, which is really hard to find for me. Even though it is a Matte it was not drying. It is a very similar feel to Urban Decay’s Comfort Matte. And I thought the wear time was insanely good. I will definitely be picking up another shade or two to try at some point.

8. Bright Spark Radiant Foundation in Sand – The radiant foundation comes in ten color options. It is a low to medium buildable foundation. It is meant smooth and even your skin tone and leaving you with a soft radiant glow. (Side note: radiant foundations work best for normal to dry skin)

This is probably the product I was most hesitant to try since my experiences with drug store level foundations have not been good and I end up reacting to them. However, I am happy to report that I was very pleasantly surprised by this one. There was no detectable fragrance in this, so that is always a plus in my book. It comes in a bottle with a pump, so no touching the product or exposing it to the air unnecessarily. The foundation comes out in a very moussey texture and after applied dries down to a satin finish. The finished look, feel, and wear is very similar to the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation but with just a tiny bit more coverage. The color is a better match for me than any offered in the Nars line, at least at my current color level.

9. High-Rise Insane Length Mascara Extreme Black – This is one of three color options for this mascara. Made to lengthen and lift your lashes. Comes in a unique package with a long skinny wand. And I believe the brush is silicone.

This is fantastic mascara. Just like the foundation, I have struggled to find a drugstore level mascara that I really liked since they discontinued one I really liked years ago. I love the very skinny wand and brush design. This definitely makes my top five favorite mascaras. It wears and performs very similarly to Clinique’s High Impact Curling Mascara, but it is harder to remove.

Final Thoughts

There were definitely three stand out stars for me in the products I tried. It is probably pretty easy to guess that those are the No Flaws Cream Concealer, the Full Body Lipstick, and the High-Rise Insane Length Mascara. I also really enjoyed the foundation, but I don’t know that it was as much of a star as the other three products.

I think everything I tried were good solid products, even the things that were not necessarily what I would want for me. Nothing was an outright fail. There are definitely things I think that could be improved upon in the line, mainly the selection of colors in the face products. I really hope that they make an effort to add a broader range of shades over time.

Overall, I was really happy with this line. There are more things that I hope to try in the future that I didn’t try in this go around. Please let me know in the comments if there are any products in particular you would like a review of.

I did snap some pictures of my favorite makeup look I created when testing out this brand, and I wanted to share that with you.

Let me know in the comments below what you have tried from COL-LAB or what you are dying to try.

 

The gift card I used to purchase my products for this review was sent to me by Sally Beauty, however all thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own. My reviews are all completely honest.

Product Review – Juvia’s Place Masquerade Palette

The Masquerade Palette from Juvia's Place

The Masquerade Palette from Juvia's Place

If you are a makeup lover and you spend any amount of time on the internet, then you most likely have heard about Juvia’s Place. Today I will be sharing with you my review of the Masquerade Palette from Juvia’s Place. I have actually had this palette for some time now, but I have just now had the time to fully swatch and test it out.

I had heard so many good things about this palette and company and I really wanted to try something from them. But its hard some times to know whether to believe the reviews when you hear only good things from places like YouTube. Various makeup products get really hyped up on there, sometimes just because they are popular brands or sometimes because people are making money off of their affiliate links. But we will talk about that in a different post at some later date. I do want to be clear before I get into this review, I am not affiliated with Juvia’s Place in any way, and I paid for this palette with my own money.

Inside of the Juvia's Place Masquerade Palette

When I bought my palette earlier this year I believe they still only had three palettes to choose from, or they may possibly have just came out with their fourth palette. They have since come out with several other palettes, but they obviously were not a factor in my purchasing decision. I ultimately decided on the Masquerade Palette because I was really drawn to the bold colors. It also seemed to have a good mix of mattes and shimmers.

Close up of all the eyeshadow pans in the Masquerade Palette

Here is what you get in this palette. There are 16 pans of eyeshadow that are 3.6G each. That is a total net weight of 57.6G. You get a mix of 5 matte and 11 shimmer/metallics (three of which appear to contain micro-glitter). This is quite a large palette, however they do offer a mini version. Getting the mini version doesn’t really save you money, in fact it is more expensive if you figure it out per gram or ounce. But if you are someone who doesn’t wear makeup a lot or you have limited space, the mini might be a better option for you.

Now lets take a closer look at the colors:

Top Row of colors swatched from the Masquerade Palette

From left to right: Chi, Mali, Dalia, and Zola

 

Second row od colors from the Masquerade palette swatched

From left to right: Makeda, Zobo, Calabar, and Bori

 

 

Swatched from the Masquerade palettes row 3

From left to right: Giza, Burkina, Cairo, and Ada.

 

Juvia's Place Masquerade palette swatches row 4

From left to right: Dahia, Zulu, Casablanca, and Fulani

I did all of these finger swatches using only one swipe. As you can see the majority of the colors, especially the metallic shimmers, came out very bold full of pigment. The only colors that didn’t perform as well during swatches (and by no means were they the worst), were the few colors that had more of a red pigment to it. However, I did not experience this same thing. That is really unusual. Usually colors perform better on finger swatches than when using a brush.

I took the time to try these out thoroughly. I know it’s a big deal for some people to be able to pull a whole look out of the same palette, so I challenged myself to create looks that only used this palette. Here are a few of the looks I came up with:

 

After testing this palette out, I can honestly say, the hype is well deserved. All of the shadows were very pigmented. They were easy to work with, they applied easily without much fallout and they blended well without going muddy. I found it easy to create multiple looks. Though one word of caution, if you are very fair you will most likely struggle to find a color that works as a transition shade. I am currently a light/medium and I did struggle a bit. I did find that I could make a couple of the shades work as a transition if I just used them with a lighter hand. You may be able to make it work with you as well. But if you can’t, who doesn’t have a ton of neutral transition shades on hand anyway. If you are anywhere in the medium to dark range of skin tone, then the Masquerade palette should easily work making a full look for you.

Tell me in the comments below if you have tried this palette. Also if there is some makeup item you want reviewed let me know. I am open to reviewing most items.

Product Review – Butter London Essentials Set, Manicure Must Haves

The Essentials Set from Butter London

Essentials Set

I just recently got the Butter London Essentials Set, so trying Butter London nail polishes out for the very first time. If you follow me over on Instagram, then you know I have been really into painting my nails recently, and I have tried out lots of different polishes. I thought since I had a complete set from the same company this time, I would do a full on review here on the blog for you.

Here is what comes in the kit:

Each of those items are some of Butter London’s best sellers, and they are all available separately as well.

It arrived in the mail well packaged, and fully encased in bubble wrap. There is absolutely no worries of the product being broken short of a concrete block being dropped on it.

The Essentials Set from Butter London

This is how they were packaged. The base and top coats were in boxes and the two colors were just open.

I decided to try out the color Yummy Mummy first, but I didn’t look at the instructions. I just did what I normally would do.

Yummy Mummy from Butter London

I applied the base coat first. It went on easily, and I thought it dried quickly. Then I applied a coat of Yummy Mummy. The formula is a bit thin and watery. This is my preference though. I don’t care for the formulas that are too thick. They take forever to dry and are really hard to work with.

It also has a wide flat brush, so it applied very easily. I only applied the one coat of polish. I looked at the directions after, and it says to use two coats. Honestly I thought at the time it was giving me full coverage or I would have used two. I can see after its all done that I needed two coats, but its not so obvious that everyone will notice it. I mainly just see it at the tips of my nails when I am standing in a brighter light.

Last I applied the top coat. Out of the three items, I thought this was the hardest to work with. The brush didn’t seem to want to hold enough product to cover all of my larger nails, and I have small nails. But this seemed odd since I the brush looks to be the same as the one in the Yummy Mummy container. But overall the product was a little too thick and sticky to call it easy to apply.

I got four days of wear before I got a chip, which is really decent. Once I got the first chip I went ahead and removed the color and applied the next.

A Piece Of Cake from Butter London

I actually thought that since they were both neutrals and similar in tone that they would apply and wear the same, but I was wrong.

I started with the same base coat as before. Then this time I did two coats of color. I used the color Piece Of Cake this time. I noticed this colors formula was much thicker. I found it harder to apply, and as you can see in the picture I had way more areas to touch up.

It only lasted two days before chipping this time. I am curious to go back and see if it would be different with one coat. I will try and test that out in the near future for all of you. It will have to wait a bit though as I had some major breakage over my vacation.

I think this really comes down to what kind of formula you like. From my own perspective I would have no problems recommending Yummy Mummy as a color to try, and I personally will be trying a few other colors. However, if you know a thicker formula works better for you then A Piece Of Cake may be the color for you. And if you don’t know what works best for you then I would definitely go with the Essentials Set.

In the comments below let me know what your favorite Butter London polish color is. Do you have one that you would recommend to everyone?

 

This product was sent to me at a reduced price for review consideration. However all views are always my own, and expresses honestly.

Product Review – Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue

Maybelline Great Lash Blue VoxBox

Maybelline Great Lash Blue VoxBox

Influenster recently sent the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue to me for free in a VoxBox for testing. I also received the Maybelline Unstoppable Mechanical Eyeliner Pencil, but for the purpose of this review I will only be talking about the Mascara.

I was really happy to find out that I was receiving this Mascara. I actually had been wanting to try a blue mascara and was about to go purchase one, so it was certainly convenient timing. It arrived it super cute packaging. It was certainly the cutest packaging out of all of the vox boxes I have ever had. And seriously, who isn’t a sucker for cute packaging?

Maybelline Great Lash Blue VoxBox

I will say up front that overall I just don’t think this product works for me. That’s not saying its a bad product or that it won’t work for someone else, but it didn’t work well for me. It did have some good points, but they were outweighed by the bad.

Here is what I liked about it:

I loved the rubber brush and its shorter bristles.

I also really loved the brilliant blue color of the product.

Here is what I didn’t like:

The formula was extremely runny. It was so runny that several times I ended up getting it in my eye.

It isn’t water proof. This is not normally a big deal for me. One of my favorite mascaras is not water proof, but this only took a tiny drop of water and I had runny blue mascara everywhere.

While I loved the color that was in the bottle, it did not show on my own lashes even with several coats. I tried it several different ways, and even with primers the best I could hope for is that you would catch a hint of blue. You will see better what I am talking about in the various pictures below.

Close Up of my eyelashes before and after application ofthe Great Lash Blue Mascara

I wanted to include at least one close up of the before and after application of the Great Lash Mascara. The after is with three coats of mascara, which is what I typically would do with the average mascara I would use. I just didn’t feel it covered my eyelashes well enough.  But I did try using more in some of the looks I did.

I did see pictures of other people who had vibrant blue on their lashes. Most of them had lighter hair color than me, so I have to wonder if that played a part in it even with the primers. I also saw some who had vibrant blue eyelashes, but their eyelashes looked horrific and cakey. You just knew that in order to achieve that look they did 10+ coats.

I can speculate as to why this didn’t work for me and did for others all I want, but at the end of the day all I can do is go on how it worked for me. And honestly I would never feel comfortable recommending this to someone else. But if you want to try a Maybelline product that I would highly recommend, take look at my review of the Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Lipstick.

If you are interested in finding out more about what products I used in my makeup looks, make sure to follow me on Instagram. All of these pictures have been posted there already. I always try to include a list of products used on my Instagram feed.

Tell me in the comments below if you have tried the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara. Did you try the original or this Royal Blue color? What did you think?

Product Review – Five Piece Makeup Sponge Set by Fairyland

Silicone sponge from Fairyland


Over the last couple of weeks I have been trying out some new makeup sponges. What I have been trying is the five piece set from Fairyland. In this set you receive three blending sponged and two of the new silicone sponges. And this is currently selling for $16.99 on Amazon.

Blender sponge and silicone sponge still in their plastic pack from fairyland

As you can see they were each sent in individual resealable bags. I thought this was a nice that they were individually wrapped like this. It makes it convenient to travel with too. I think most of you are familiar with how to use a blending sponge at this point, so most of this review is going to focus on the silicone sponge and how to best use it.

Blender sponge from fairyland

First let me tell you briefly about the sponge blender that was included in the set. As I said you get three of them in this set from Fairyland. This is not the name brand Beauty Blender, let me point that out just in case anyone was confused. It is the same color and similar shape and size. As far as softness goes on initial use it was very stiff. However, Fairyland mentions on their Amazon page that they soften up after initial use if you wet them. I can honestly say they have gotten a little softer each time I have used them. I still don’t think I would say it’s quite as soft as the name brand, but it is close after four uses. Application is as you would expect with a blending sponge. I think overall for the price this is a great alternative.

Silicone sponge from Fairyland

I felt like since the silicone sponge was so new on the market there was a bit of a learning curve for me. I certainly had heard a lot about it, and had seen some mini clips of people using it. However I did not want to go watch any tutorials or reviews until after I tried it myself a time or two.

I made this short video demonstrating how to use the silicone sponge. Forgive the weird makeup faces, you know you do it too.

Over the last couple of weeks I had the time to experiment with the silicone sponge quite a bit. I tried it with different foundations and under different circumstances and I think I have some tips that may help you out.

Do’s

  •  Use with matte and satin finish foundations
  •  Apply makeup in small amounts a little at a time directly to the silicone sponge
  •  Apply using a circular motion to spread the makeup on your face
  •  Use a patting motion to blend after you makeup is on
  •  Use a primer for your best results

Don’ts

  •  Use this with a dewy finish foundation.
  •  Use this if you have put on face oil prior to applying foundation
  •  Mix oil with you foundation you are applying

Overall I will say, I think this is probably going to be a better tool for people who have normal to oily skin. If you have dry skin you can still make it work like I did if you are using a satin finish foundation and are not adding any face oil to the mix.

The first couple of times I tried the silicone sponge out I had tried it with my current favorite foundations and it didn’t turn out well. I wasn’t sure if I was doing something wrong or what. That’s when I started watching other people and noticed the difference between who was having success and who wasn’t. My current foundations are very dewy finishes with oils in them. So the one you see me using in the video is a Satin finish.

My finished makeup after using the silicone sponge from Fairland

This is how my completed makeup turned out after the video. I thought it did do a wonderful job with the satin finish foundation. You may still need to use a blending sponge or your fingers to get around the crevices of your nose or around your eyes after application. And the big selling feature I think everyone is after with the silicone sponge, using less product. I can honestly say, yes I was able to use less product and get more coverage while using the silicone sponge.

If you are interested in trying this for yourself you can find this set through Fairyland’s Amazon page.

The set used for this review was sold to me at a discount for review purposes, however all opinions expressed are my own.

Tell me in the comments below if you have tried the silicone sponge yet, and what you thought about it

Product Review: Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

I recently had the chance to try the Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer. Before I tell you about the experience and what happened, let me tell you a bit about the company and the product.

The Company

Valentia is named for the Roman Goddess of Healing of the same name. And in a fun kind of way, they have tied their company’s concept around that. According to their website, their mission statement is:

To provide you a greater level of overall happiness with your appearance without the harsh chemicals that dry out, stretch, burn and prematurely age the skin. Our strategic formulations include powerful natural ingredients that have been scientifically proven to succeed in giving skin a natural and radiant glow that contributes to a youthful look.

But the things that I think most people will be interested in knowing about this company are these key points:

  • They are made in the USA
  • They are made using sustainable energy
  • They are made with natural and organic ingredients
  • They are vegan friendly and cruelty free

If you would like to learn more about the company you can do that here.

The Product

A brightening moisturizer packed full of all natural ingredients. The key ingredient list was actually one of the things that interested me the most in wanting to try it. It has:

  • 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.

There is a pretty big list of claims for what this moisturizer will do for you as well. Here is what is suppose to do:

  •  Lighten dark spots
  •  Restore skin radiance
  •  Even skin tone
  •  Diminish fine lines
  •  Provide all-day hydration

And if you would like to read more about the product or see a full ingredient list you can see that here.

Karen’s Experience

You can order two ways, either through their Amazon page or their website. I was given a coupon code from the company to use on Amazon. So I went through the same ordering process any other customer would. It is available for free prime shipping, so if you are a prime member it may be a better option for you to order that way.

*UPDATE* Valentia has offered my readers a special offer. From now till 10-22-16 you can use code WE4KBU6R to receive 20% off if you would like to try the Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer for yourselves.

I received my moisturizer in a timely manner as you would expect with any item you order through Amazon Prime.

Valentia Pure Glow MoisturizerThis is what the box looks like that you get. Which I actually think the packaging look quite nice. Its on par with many of the items you see in Sephora or Ulta. And it came wrapped quite securely.

Valentia Pure Glow Moisturizer Bottle

This is the bottle that was inside. I really like it too. The pump on the bottle was perfect. It was easy to use, but not so easy that too much came out. It often seems like a lot of pups are either so hard to push that its like a workout to get anything out of the bottle, or you barely push them and stuff splatters everywhere. I also appreciate that its in an amber colored bottle, I know that helps keep the light out and prolongs the life of the product.

My hair after using the Vibrance Healthy Hair VitaminsThis is a picture of me that I had taken, clean face no makeup, for something else the day prior to starting use of the Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer. As most of you know I am in my late 30’s. I have normal to dry skin, my dry areas are in the t-zone. I also have extremely sensitive skin due to an allergy to Balsam of Peru.

The first couple of days I used the product it went great, and I thought it made my skin looked great. The third day  my skin still looked okay, but my skin felt odd. By the fourth day my skin looked red and irritated and I was itchy. Now you guys know my allergy that causes the contact dermatitis can be really complicated. Before I agreed to test this out I had looked over the ingredient list and I didn’t see anything I had reacted to before. However there is two ingredients that I have, to my knowledge, never had any experience with in the past. So my thought is, one or both of those two ingredients are were causing a reaction. So I stopped immediate use. I didn’t think to take a picture at the time, but honestly I don’t know you guys would have been able to tell. I didn’t blister or anything, I just looked a little red. Normally my undertones are very yellow.

Now because my allergy is so complicated, and because my skin is not that of the average person, I didn’t think it was fair to solely give you a review based on my experience. Honestly, all I can tell you is that it didn’t work for me, and I don’t think that is indicative of it being a bad product.  So I called on my friend Jenny. You guys have seen her occasionally here on the blog and some of my social media, she is one of the besties. She graciously agreed to be my guinea pig and test out the product for us.

 

Jenny’s Experience

My friend Jenny prior to using Valentia Pure Glow MoisturizerJenny is in her early 40’s. She has Normal skin with an oily t-zone. She says her main skin concerns are the occasional hormonal break out and the beginnings of wrinkles.

Jenny used the Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer day and night for seven days before reporting back. Here is what she thought:

I liked the moisturizer. It didn’t have much of a scent, it went on smoothly, and didn’t feel greasy. I didn’t have any adverse reactions to the lotion and it seemed to give my skin a nice glow. The packaging was nice, but you have to make sure all the excess lotion is off the pump or it streaks the cap when you put it back on. I will be continuing to use this product.

My friend Jenny after using the moisturizer for a weekThis is Jenny after using the moisturizer for seven days straight. I do think I can see a subtle glow that wasn’t there before.

Final Thoughts

I really encourage you all to read about the product and the companies practices. I really wish I could use them because I still think that with everything I know about them it equals quality products.

If you would like to be updated on new products and what’s happening with Valentia you can follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

 

I received my bottle of Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer as a free sample. However all opinions expressed in this post are genuine and our own.
