Valentia True Glow Eye Cream Review

The area around the eyes is very sensitive, so constantly aggravating it by blending eyeshadow or removing mascara makes the eyelid wrinkled, tired, and discolored. This is my biggest concern when it comes to my eye area, so for me, for an eye cream to be considered effective, it has to reduce wrinkles, hydrate, tighten, brighten, and restore radiance. The Valentia True Glow Eye Cream claims to do all of the above.

Astanxanthin, resistem, vitamin C, rosehip oil, and amica are the active ingredients in this eye cream that help moisturize, repair, and smooth the area around the eye.

My first impression of the product when I first dispensed it on my hand is that it looks too rich and creamy for my liking. What surprised me was when I dipped my ring finger into it, the product starts looking and feeling gel-like, as shown in the picture above. I really dislike eye creams that are rich and creamy because they don't go on the eyelid easily and tend to tug on the skin, which kind of defeats the purpose. This eye cream isn't like that. It looks and feels gel-like, like I mentioned, and it glides across the eyelid like a dream. The gel-like consistency also makes it feel soothing. Because of the gel-like consistency, though, it does tend to feel and look wet on the eyelid for a while, so I only use it at night before going to bed as opposed to in the morning before leaving the house.

My favorite part about the Valentia True Glow Eye Cream is its consistency. It feels like a cross between a lotion and a gel. It's not as heavy as a lotion but not as light as a gel. Either way, I love the way it feels on the eyelid during application. It's very cooling and soothing, which is great in an eye cream. Because of this consistency also, a little goes a long way. I dispense one pump on my hand, and there's usually some left over that I just massage into my hand. The bottle isn't tiny like most eye creams either, so I see this product lasting me a while.

With that being said, though, is this product effective? Does it reduce wrinkles, hydrate, tighten, brighten, and restore radiance like it promised? Kind of. It's not significant, but my eyelids do look tighter and brighter. The skin isn't as wrinkly and saggy, and it's not as dark and patchy. I've also only been using this product for a little over a week, so I'd say that it's definitely promising, and that's more than I can say for most eye creams.

{ Sad Faces }

Although my favorite part about this eye cream is its gel-like consistency, I was quite disappointed that it doesn't absorb into the skin as well as I'd hoped. It does get absorbed eventually, but it does look and feel wet on the eyelid while it sits.

I would definitely recommend this product if what you look for in an eye cream is similar to what I look for in an eye cream. If you're looking for a product to reduce dark circles or eye bags, this might not be the ideal product, but if you're looking to tighten and brighten your eyelids, the Valentia True Glow Eye Cream fits the bill!
