You may remember a couple weeks ago when I wrote up a review on the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask and True Glow Eye Cream. It was pretty much a complete rave, and I was so happy to have found out about the brand. Today I'm back with another one of their lovely products, the new Royal Rose Hydrating Serum.* And spoiler alert: I'm in love again.
Like the other products I've tried from the brand, it totes a number of impressive ingredients. First is Rose Damascena, known for its ability to balance and moisturize the skin. It's also got Rosehip Seed Oil, which is a well-loved favorite of mine - my skin loves just about anything with this oil in it. It also contains Niacinamide (Vitamin B), which helps fade any hyperpigmentation. It seemed like it was just made for me.
It comes in a lovely little glass bottle with a pump, and this time, it dispenses the perfect amount of product. I typically do one pump for my whole face, but if my skin's feeling especially dry I'll go for one and a half or two.
I've been using it twice daily, morning and night, and can happily report it's been working wonders for my dehydrated skin. Like I said, my skin really responds well to rosehip oil, so this leaves my skin feeling juicy and plump. Since I started using it, I've noticed my skin stays hydrated for longer throughout the day - I've been using my hydrating facial sprays less during the day because my skin simply hasn't been feeling tight at all. The serum feels ultra lightweight on the skin, so I feel like it would be a great addition to your skincare routine, whether you're oily or dry. My skin has a tendency to get a little congested and clogged if something's too heavy or rich, and I haven't had any problems like that with this serum whatsoever.
So all in all, it's another pure winner from Valentia. It's got me wanted to try more from their line! Have you tried this serum?
