Valentia Facial Serum- Review

photo credit: cyndicurtis

Not all vitamin C serums are the same

Valentia has a moderate price point, adult packaging and a 98% natural product. Some of the ingredients are green tea extract, organic rose hip oil and hyaluronic acid. What I like most is the serum is 98% natural( natural does not mean organic) Valentia has organic rosehip seed oil, green tea extract and hyaluronic acid and when applied the light gel is absorbed quickly by the skin. Below I included a photo of what the serum looks like in hand. When you buy Valentia serum online- they offer a MBG( money back guarantee).

The serum smells faintly like oranges but will almost immediately disappear once it is applied to the skin.The consistency is a not too watery gel- which is good because then it can be placed it in the refrigerator and apply it in the morning to de-puff facial skin. A small amount is all that is  needed to cover the  face, as this gel spreads easily. This product review was sponsored by Valentia and I am thrilled that they chose me to review it but let me be frank- I am serious about facial products and this one"walked the talk". I encourage you to visit their site, read-up and take advantage of this quality serum.

Visit Valentia:

Special Note:
I have sensitized skin and Valentia Even Glow Skin Serum did not irritate my skin at all. I was initially concerned that it might. I was able to use this product for approximately 3-4 days before I wrote this review. If after continued use I find irritation occurs from this product- I will update this post. So far, I am thrilled with everything about this serum.

Impactful Movies You Should Support

Yekra Player
Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.
I am so glad I didn't urge my daughters to get the HPV shots. Did you make your child get this or other shots?
The hidden story about vaccines, autism, drugs and food… Americas health has been BOUGHT. Your health, your family’s health. Now brought to you by Wall Street… “If you thought they hurt us with the banks, wait till you see what they’re doing to health care.” Vaccines. GMOs. Big Pharma. Three big, BIG, okay… HUGE topics in one film. Why? Why not 3 films, why put all this in one movie? Great question, 2 answers. 1st and most importantly: We need to band together. We need a mainstream film, not another radical movie that only interests the “already converted”. Over 5 million people supported Prop 37 in CA. Reportedly, over 2 million worldwid...ur industrialized food, our insane vaccine expansion, and our love affair with pharmaceuticals- it’s the same villain. It’s a risky story to tell, but would be a tragedy to passively consent to with silence. There is something horribly wrong with health care today. Huge money, billions and billions of dollars flowing into the same pockets. Meanwhile, MD’s aren’t being allowed to actually practice the art of medicine and anyone who questions vaccination safety, pharmaceuticals, factory farms, etc. is ridiculed and belittled. Meanwhile, the billions keep flowing, carried on a river of pain and anguish. Huge corporations funded by individual misery, one broken life at a time. Three huge stories, each worthy of multiple films, but each brought together by one staggering fact: it’s the same villain. These three story lines converge on Wall Street, in a tale of corruption, greed and shocking lack of conscience.

Embedded Chips and How It May Effect You

 Welcome the EMV technology. Every retail location's credit card processing equipment must be upgraded to be compatible with this new technology which by the way stands for Europay,Mastercard, Visa. I know many of us ladies conduct online businesses that include events around the country to promote our products and services. If you use a mini card swipe reader like Paypal's or Square's readers, then read on just so you are in the know.  I am sure it isn't a big thing but so many conspiracy theories pop to my mind, and then there is the whole cost thing. Will the middle man pass on the cost's of their upgrades to me?

Read more....

How do you feel about the chance your processing company(Paypal,Square or any local retailer) will up their fees to lessen their cost of doing business?

Coco Amo Leave In Conditioner Review

I recently had a chance to try a full sized sample bottle of Coco-Amo. The conditioner smells like coconut and is translucently creamy. With  Coco Amo, "Love" leave in conditioner multiracial hair has a chance at being smooth and less frizzy. The product contains: black walnut, hydrolyzed silk,proteins and serica. I use it as a hair balm too which keeps it from drying out. It must be the silk content which makes this a frizz tamer...oh the woes of multiracial hair.  In a few weeks, I am thinking of blending this conditioner with henna to feed my hair even more PH goodness- I will keep you posted.  I should email the company and suggest a new name for this conditioner something like ; Damn Good Conditioner or Hella Good Conditioner.

Have you tried henna with any conditioners, how did it turn out? Right now the Coco-Amo people are holding a sale. This way you can try it yourself.
