Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum Review

My latest skincare testing regimen has included Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum. I have been thrilled with the Valentia products I have tried so far, and this product nicely complements previous treatments from the brand. Valentia offers two retinol treatments, the Serum and a Cream for drier skin. Let's have a look!

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum

Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum is intended to address wrinkling, dullness, skin tone discoloration, and breakouts. One of the challenges with formulating a retinol product is to ensure it is effective while not inducing irritation in sensitive users. This one succeeded with my skin!

Let's see what the brand had to say:

A potent blend of Retinol, with essential vitamins and botanicals specifically chosen to enhance Retinols efficacy work together to create the serum your skin care dreams are made of. Retinol works down to the cellular level to stimulate collagen production and diminish even the deepest of wrinkles. Vitamin C helps Retinol penetrate deeper into the skin, while Vitamin E and Squalane nourish and hydrate, counteracting the drying effects of Retinol and maximizing anti-aging benefits. This transformative retinol serum will turn back the clock, giving you visibly smoother, rejuvenated skin.

What are the ingredients?

Specially selected ingredients:
  • Retinol (Vitamin A): This clinically proven antioxidant is a triple threat! It works at the cellular level to stop wrinkles from forming, manages acne breakouts, and even out skin discoloration. Retinol helps reverse the clock, for more youth looking and acting skin.
  • Vitamin C: An essential nutrient that boosts Retinol’s protective effects, guarding skin against nasty free radicals and environmental damage to prevent premature aging. 
  • Vitamin E: Specifically chosen for its superior moisture protection. Vitamin E floods the skin hydration, diminishing the drying effects of Retinol.
  • Squalane: Derived for pure olive oil, this nutrient-rich ingredient softens and conditions delicate skin. It further assists in mitigating the dryness caused by Retinol while reducing the appearance of fine lines. 
Full Ingredient List:
Deionized Aqua (Water), Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Aloe Vera), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (botanical hyaluronic acid), Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Olive Oil Squalene, Retinol, Tocopheryl Acetate (sunflower based Vitamin E), Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid,  Organic Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola), Wildcrafted Equisetum Arvense (Horsetail), Wildcrafted Taraxacum Officinale (Dandelion), Wildcrafted Geranium Maculatum (Wild Geranium), Pentylene Glycol, Phospholipids, Alcohol, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Phosphate, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol.
In addition to the active retinol, the formulation includes soothing ingredients such as aloe leaf juice, vitamin E, squalane, jojoba oil, squalene, glycerin, and olive oil. This helps the skin maintain a hydration barrier during the increase in skin cell turnover triggered by the retinol.

How did it do? My skin tolerated this amazingly well. Even though I have dry skin, in warm weather I did not need an additional moisturizer, just the serum at night for hydration. It would, however complement my favorite Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer. Both products dramatically improved my skin tightness, smoothness, translucency, and moisture barrier while leaving me with an amazing glow. I have to say these both really took a few years off my sometimes dull skin! So, count this as another home run from Valentia! The Night Revive Retinol Serum is available for $35 and a little goes a long way. If you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can pick it up with no shipping charges. Otherwise, a $50 Amazon purchase earns you free shipping. I can definitely recommend this product, and when combined with the Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer you will truly have a one-two punch against, dull, dry skin.
