Retinol Revive #Valentia

Press Sample. All opinions are my own.
Hello, Fireflies!

Does the word, 'Retinol' strike fear into your heart?  Do you immediately think of the harsh, doctor-prescribed formulas of yore that made your skin turn red and peel off before finally healing?  Skincare science has advanced, thank goodness, and now you can get the skin-clearing benefits of Retin-A, but in a non-prescription form of Retinol.  It takes longer, but is so much gentler, and it's become a staple, not only in my skincare, but that of my husband, as well.

I'm such a geek, I know - I get excited when I get to try a new formulation of a beloved ingredient from a brand I love working with.  Valentia has such an array of great products, made from the best natural and organic ingredients.  Their formulations are free from nasties like parabens and sulfates, and are always cruelty-free.
When you have aging, oily skin like my husband and I have, there's a fine line between managing oil and exacerbating wrinkles.  Valentia's Night Revive Serum contains a blend of ingredients that perfectly hydrate with things like Squalane and Vitamin E, and also work on age spots, wrinkles, and acne, with Vitamin C and Retinol. 
This serum has a milky-while color and no discernible odor.  The amber bottle helps protect it from light, and the dropper dispenser keeps contaminants at bay.  Be careful not to tip it over, or it will spill, though!  On me, it absorbs quickly, with no residue on the skin.

I was inspired to do a little art-deco type stamping for this nailart.  The base is SephoraX Borealis, stamped with Maybelline Bold Gold and my Winstonia W-320 plate.
I have been using Night Revive at night, and I can tell a difference, too.  My skin is balanced - no more oil slicks, and much fewer pimples.  My wrinkles around my eyes are softened.  My husband uses Retinol serum every night on his bald head, and the improvement is astounding - his head used to be dull and oily, and full of blackheads.  Now, it's smooth and soft, and hydrated without being greasy.

For more information, or to purchase, you can find Valentia on Facebook, Instagram, their website, or on Amazon, where their Night Revive Retinol Serum currently retails for $35.  Valentia offers a lifetime guarantee, so you can try it risk-free.
