Another brand/company that I have developed a fondness for is Valentia. With their high quality beauty products, excellent ingredients, and a sweet and truthful tagline of “Indulge Your Skin”, it’s hard not to love them.
This review is for their Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask.
Their branding is pretty consistent through their line -classy, crisp white with gold foil accents and black lettering.
It looks edible, like a pudding or custard filling (I love food, so it’s hard not to make a visual comparison, lol), the texture is similar as well. The scent is hard to pin down, but I want to say it’s like a candy-ish smell with similar aftertones to that of flavored teas.
Application was easy and despite it looking and feeling like pudding, it wasn’t sticky at all and it felt like I was just applying an excess amount of lotion to my face. I left it on for about 15 minutes (directions were 15-30 mins), it didn’t dry to a papery texture, it stayed pretty moist and soft. There was no burning or tingling or any discomfort at all! It felt like it was doing its job – hydrating. When I washed it off, my skin was all glowy lovely – silky, smooth softness. This is definitely one of the better products for facial hydration, it was gentle and non-drying, very moisturizing and mild on the skin. I’d say that this is a must, especially for these winter months!
And as usual, the product description, per the box: “A blend of silk protein amino acids and botanical hyaluronic acid work together to flood the skin with moisture providing intense hydration and nourishment. The result is a softer more luminous looking complexion that feels rejuvenated from the inside out.” Key ingredients (you can read more about the benefits of each of these ingredients via Amazon): Silk protein amino acid blend, botanical hyaluronic acid, organic sea buckthorn oil, Japanese green tea, aloe vera, organic rosehip seed oil.
