valentia eye cream and hydration mask

I was recently fortunate enough to receive and test Valentia’s True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. I loved them both!
The eye cream purports to reduce wrinkles, nourish and hydrate, tighten the eye area, brighten dark circles, and restore radiance. The package directs you to apply every morning or night after cleansing. I opted for night, because I found it difficult to apply makeup in the morning with this on, even reducing the amount I was using and making sure it had plenty of time to absorb. That doesn’t really matter, though, because it has worked just fine as part of my nighttime routine. 
I pat a small amount (smaller than the amount pictured) under my eyes before bed, using my ring finger to protect against treating that sensitive skin too roughly. On mornings after I’ve used this, the most noticeable benefit is the tightness of the area. A lot of eye products—particularly serums—tighten skin by drying it out. I haven’t had that problem with this cream.

The hydration mask is likewise impressive. It claims to boost collagen production (which I don’t really know how to test), increase skin radiance, reduce find lines, and secures skin moisture. The directions tell you to leave it on for 15-30 minutes and warn that a slight tingling sensation is normal. I don’t experience such a tingling sensation, but just know that it’s apparently normal if you do.
My favorite result from this mask is the overall smoothness I notice in my skin. I think it’s a result of increased moisture without oiliness. And I think the result of healthier feeling and looking skin can be attributed to the combination of green tea, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and rosehip seed oil. I’ve tried plenty of products with one of these as the main ingredient, and I think they do a lot for skin health. So it’s no surprise to me that the presence of all four in this mask creates a winning combination. 

Both the eye cream and the face mask have a subtle pleasant fragrance. The eye cream seems slightly citrus, which I love.

While I received this product complimentary for testing purposes, I will never post any opinions on De Nouveau Review that are not my own.
