Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer Review

I have been testing the Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer recently, and it has quickly risen to the top of my skin care favorites! This gentle, light product has made a noticeable difference in my skin in just a short period of time. If you have hyperpigmentation prone skin that needs a lift and brighten, this may just be the product for you. Let's have a closer look!

Let's see what the brand had to say:

Packed with brightening power, this moisturizer helps to lighten pigmentation marks and enhance the radiance of your overall complexion. With energizing antioxidants like Ginseng and Kojic Acid to control melanin production, dark spots are faded and collagen production is enhanced, revealing firmer more even skin. Skin moisture is replenished and protected with Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Safflower and Shea Butter. Tired and dull looking skin is restored to unveil a healthier, more vibrant glow!

What are the ingredients?

  • Botanical Hyaluronic Acid:  This plant based substance penetrated deep into the skin to secure moisture, support skin elasticity, and plump the skin from within.
  • Kojic Acid:  Known for its skin-lightening properties, this antioxidant helps to naturally control melanin production and prevent dark spots. 
  • Ginseng: A symbol of long-life, strength, and wisdom, Ginseng boosts skin-firming collagen, fights wrinkles, and gives the skin a brighter and more energized look. 
  • Safflower Oil: Rich in linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid that helps to repair the skin’s natural moisture barrier, providing superior protection. 
  • Shea Butter: This wonder nut contains a myriad of regenerative vitamins and essential fatty acids, providing a welcome dose of moisture, hydrating and nourishing the skin.

The moisturizer comes in a 4 oz. glass bottle with a pump top. A little goes a long way, so this should last 4-12 months for most people.

How did it do? I have to say this is one of my new favorite skin care products and I will definitely be buying more. It is lightly citrus scented and amazingly soothing and refreshing. I liken it to the feeling of having a cool drink of water on a hot day. There is no stickiness or residue and the amount of hydration is pretty much right for my medium dry fall skin. The plump, lifted, and glowing look stays into the next day when I apply it at night and I have no skin flakes whatsoever. It manages to strike the balance between remaining hydrating for a long period of time but having no greasiness whatsoever. The gentle ingredients include aloe, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin, all gentle moisturizers that work well with my skin, along with a variety of plant oils to help hold in the moisture.

Overall, I would say this is pretty much the perfect moisturizer for me. I can definitely recommend it for dry, hyperpigmentation-prone skin like mine. It also did a great job lifting and tightening my skin to minimize fine lines and eye bags. Not only that, but the Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer is only $25 for 4 oz. That is a seriously good deal for effective skin care, and this one is right up there with the best of the premium moisturizers I have tried in the $100 for much smaller quantities. Bravo, Valentia - color me seriously impressed!

This is my second dream-come-true product from Valentia - also check out their Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum that I reviewed earlier. You can pick up Valentia products from Amazon, which means you can use your Prime membership to get free shipping, too!
