I've been looking forward to sharing my review of Valentia's Royal Rose Hydrating Serum since I first incorporated it in to my skin care routine! Historically, my skin care routine couldn't even be considered a "skin care routine." It consisted of removing makeup, followed by a simple face wash. Yup, that's it. I used to be like moisturizer, what? Serum, who?
In my teens and early 20s it just wasn't important or even on my radar to pay special attention and care to my skin. As I became more aware of properly nourishing my health from within, I also realized I was doing a disservice to my skin by not nourishing on the surface as well. Now that I'm 26 and can feel 30 looming over me... I'm taking my skin's health in to my own hands and only feeding it products made of organic ingredients that naturally stimulate rejuvenation.
A little background on my facial skin type. It tends to be on the drier side with red undertones, and isn't particularly sensitive. I have faint lines around my eyes and in my forehead, which are what I'm trying to keep at bay through hydration. Products that boost hydration, radiance, and are calming are what my skin needs to look its very best.
Now a little background on Valentia! If you're a mythology buff then you may recognize the name Valentia as the Roman Goddess of healing. How apropos is that?! Valentia only relies upon organic and natural ingredients like rose damascena, niacinamide (Vitamin B), rosehip seed oil, evening primrose oil, bearberry, and lavendar that are known for their protective, preventative, and corrective powers.
After just a week of using the Royal Rose Hydrating Serum I was able to see an improvement in the redness of the skin on my face, and overall it felt more supple and refreshed. The fine lines around my eyes are diminishing as well. Keeping that area hydrated is super important! Letting it dry out leads to the lines becoming more prominent and deeper (no thank you). Also, as a side note, it does have a pretty strong rose scent, which I personally loved. However, if you prefer products with mild or no scent then be aware that this product is scent heavy.
To achieve best results use this easy 5 Step Process:
- Remove makeup from face
- Use an organic face wash with warm water
- Pat dry face with hand towel
- Use 1 - 2 pumps of Valentia's Royal Rose Hydrating Serum
- Finish with an organic moisturizer or night cream
Now should you put your faith in this product?
Definitely! I give it a 4 out of 5 stars. I wholeheartedly believe this product is worth giving it a try. I saw enough of a change and improvement that I feel confident enough to share the results, and my honest feelings with you.
