Get Glowing Skin with Valentia


I have far from perfect skin, and thanks to this fantastic winter weather that we’re experiencing (picking up on my sarcasm there?), the cold is wreaking even greater havoc on my skin. In an attempt to salvage any amount of moisture left in my skin, I’ve recently introduced two new skincare products to my routine that have brought back both hydration and life to my face.

Because of my super sensitive skin, I’m always game for trying new brands and products that offer all natural and organic ingredients – Valentia Skin Care does just that, and their cosmetic ingredients claim to repair and protect skin.

The Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask was exactly what I was looking for in a weekly treatment – it promises to secure moisture and plump skin from within, while also offering long-term results of fewer fine lines and a more even skin tone.


After religiously using this mask once a week for a few weeks now, I can say that my skin feels drastically softer and smoother, and looks more hydrated when I wash the mask off. It also does wonders for makeup application since it creates such a smooth, clean canvas out of my face.

Get Glowing Skin with Valentia: Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask


My absolute favorite new product, the True Glow Eye Cream, has replaced all other eye creams currently in my collection. The packaging alone sold me – the glass bottle gives it a high-end, luxe feel, and the pump makes it easy to control how much product you use. One pump is more than enough for both eyes.


This is the only eye cream that I’ve ever used that doesn’t cause my under eye concealer to crease while applying makeup. It goes on smooth and feels weightless on the skin – I use this both day and night, and I’ve seen a significant difference in my under eye circles and overall hydration of the skin around my eyes.


Another added bonus? Both the mask and eye cream have a strong, citrus scent, which is a-okay by me and doggy approved, too!


These products couldn’t have come into my life at a better time, and my skin hasn’t felt this good in months – take that, winter!

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
