" rel="nofollow"> About this Product:  Valentia Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub made from Green and White teas infused with tropical butters and vitamins A, B, D, and E. Designed to soften the skin, remove dead skin cells, prevent future breakouts and keep the skin refreshed and hydrated.

My Experience:This is a refreshing scrub made with green and white tea and a slew of other soothing and hydrating ingredients to gently slough off the dead skin and recreate a fresher more youthful appearance. Valentia products is all I use now so I was very happy to be able to review a scrub as well from them, Packaged in it's usual white and gold which just looks like a luxury product, This scrub is pleasant smelling and gentle to use.
I prefer to use my finger when applying any scrub and I was very impressed with how mild it was as opposed to much grittier or heavier scrubs I have used in the past. The scrub has a gel-like consistency which I think is from the Aloe Vera and the jojoba beads are gentler than scrubs that would just about throw tree bark in there to scrub your face with and your left red and irritated.This does not do that whatsoever. It leaves my face feeling cool and refreshed and then of course i apply my Valentia serums after and I am fresh faced, looking young  and ready to go!! It is also said to prevent breakouts so I may pass this on to my teenage daughter to try.
Every Valentia product I have tried has been an organic luxury for my skin and I have not experienced  a better skincare line since discovering them.

My Experience: At first glance I was impressed by the packaging and inclusion of a little spoon to scoop it out with (it's the little things) With that being said once you scoop out this 100% pure dead sea salt scrub infused with organic lemongrass, organic ylang ylang oil,sweet almond, jojoba, argan and aloe vera you can see it is finely ground and the smell is simply divine. I decided to try this on the driest and most flaky skin on my body, my legs. I took out a spoonful of the scrub and massaged this into my legs and felt such immediate hydration and moisturizing benefits I have never experienced with other scrubs before. I also used this to scrub my feet as well and I could not believe the softness after I rinsed off. The scent alone stimulates the senses making your shower an instant spa experience that uplifts your spirit and soul and cares for your skin like no other scrub. My skin was incredibly soft and I felt so relaxed and comfortable all day long. This is more than just the "best" organic exfoliating body scrub this is literally a magic potion of senses and spirit. 

You can find Asutra products on their website or on Amazon.

When will you know, your using the RIGHT mask?

When which was launched in Korea, in 2011 created a innovative face mask with superior adhesion and hydrating effect. They do this by using an all- natural bio-cellulose technology to create innovative masks and with superior adhesion and hydrating effects. The all- natural bio-cellulose sheet is made from coconuts which is used to treat burn patients. Despite it's lightweight the sheet can hold essence 100 times it's weight. That means 10 more times than fabric or paper mask sheets.This mask is also friendly to the environment by having the essence contact the face so thoroughly it creates less waste than leading masks normally do. Which means you are getting the full effects of the sheet and high amounts of hydration.

When has created a series of spa-like masks that contain ingredients that are natural and soothing for when your skin needs that extra care. It is also formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

My Experience:

I received the Glamour Base or (Makeup Base) which i was most 
excited for to help with smoother and more even based skin before
I apply my makeup. The following directions are very pivotal
in using these sheets and you must follow them to the letter!!

-Cleanse and dry the face.
-Open the pouch and unfold the three layers of sheets (film-mask sheet-paper). 
-Remove the paper and the film, and place the mask sheet on the face. Adjust and smooth out the mask sheet for good contact. 
-Remove and discard the mask after about 30 minutes.
-No need to rinse. 
-Massage remaining product into face and neck.
-Use immediately after opening. 


After the 30 minutes I simply peeled off the mask and used the remaining essence all over my face and neck for extra hydration. I have used sheet masks in the past that were so drenched with product that I felt like I was wearing jelly fish on my face but I can honestly say I did not get that with the When Makeup Base mask. It felt amazingly hydrating and softer than I could ever have imagined. Applying my makeup shortly afterwards I noticed right away that my foundation glided on smoother and stayed in place longer. My face remained fresh and dewy all day and I had no patches or uneven coverage. I recommend if you have a special event coming up to give this particular one a try. 
This is only one of the many varieties that WHEN offers and after trying this one out I am very eager to try the other 4. TravelMate, Snow Magic, 10Pm and Last Choice. These all retail for $7 which is absolutely a great deal and you will achieve spa like results with these if you use them often.(recommended 3 times a week) Below is a list of all retailers where you can purchase these amazing masks.

Safe visible and infrared light wavelengths penetrate the skin, stimulating the production of natural enzymes that increase collagen production, reduce inflammation, and improve skin and texture. I was so excited to begin this treatment though I must say was also very skeptical! But what's 5 minutes a day when you can take YEARS of age off your face?? It's simple to use and you can do this at anytime of the day. Results vary and of course it is gradual over time but results DO happen!!

Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Lotion:

About Them
Just like their namesake Valentia The Goddess of Healing, Valentia relies on all natural ingredients and organic cosmetic ingredients that will repair and protect the skin. With several key ingredients such as:
Gotu Kola: It is known to prevent infection and inhibit scar formation. It is also useful in repairing skin and connective tissues and smoothing out cellulite.
Lactic Acid: (AHA) increases skin cell turnover revealing healthier, glowing skin.
Licorice:Lightens unwanted pigmentation and corrects skin discoloration
Argan Oil: Rich in vitamin-E improves elasticity.
Seaweed: Increases skin oxygen to help detoxify and boost antioxidant defense.

My Experience:

When trying this out for the first time I was reminded of the first serum that I had experienced with
Valentia Even Glow Vitamin C Serum. Which was the first time I had ever tried anything from them and I not only was impressed at the quality and the ingredients but I was forever changed in my skin care routine after using it for a period of time. The main thing is the product produces results that my skin that went from dull and lifeless to tighter, brighter and clearer than it has ever been in 15 years.

This serum reminds me so much of the Vitamin C Serum but better!
It has this silky consistency, bares a light peach color and sinks into your skin instantly.
I usually wash my face and use a hyaluronic serum before I apply this one. When that dries I apply the Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum which feels cooling and soothing to my skin and apply my moisturizer and I am ready to go. I notice that my makeup application is smoother and looks even and I don't experience any dry patches or greasiness. The smell is of fresh sweet oranges and is so pleasant to the senses.  The end result is clearer, fresher and more brighter looking skin feeling soft and youthful and at 45 I can use all the help in there I can get.

Of course end results may be different for your specific skin type so always consult a dermatologist before you try any new skin care as some ingredients may exacerbate your specific areas of need.

All in all I am in love with this serum and with the Valentia brand.

Just a little background about the wonderful company that provided these samples to me for review. Valentia Skin Care relies on natural resources for all their skin care, they are formulated with natural and organic ingredients that will repair and help protect the skin.

Ultra Plumping Hydrating Mask: A luxurious blend of amino acids and hyaluronic acid that work together to flood the skin with moisture providing the most intensive hydration and nourishment. 

Applying this mask to my face with it's custard like texture felt like silk going on and you instantly get a very slight cooling "tingle". You allow at least 15-30 minutes for the mask to really penetrate your skin and removal with a warm washcloth. Afterwards my skin felt so refreshed and soft. This has become a revolutionary way to mask without having to peel, scrub or dry your face to oblivion. My skin felt and looked radiant and applying makeup was a dream after using this at least 2x a week.

True Glow Eye Cream: An illuminating anti-oxidant rich eye cream that locks in moisture and repairs that very delicate skin under your eye. Leaving you with a youthful glow we all are desperate to attain. Nourishes and hydrates, reduces swelling and puffiness, diminishes the appearance of dark circles and brightens. Apply twice daily.

This was the most emollient of eye-creams I have ever tried and very similar to the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask  the cream is very smooth and luxurious. Apply very delicately to the under eye in a gentle, dabbing motion going around the orbital bone and working towards the bridge of your nose. I instantly felt a little tightening but a comfortable one and a definite smoothing. This is also wonderful as an under eye primer before you apply concealer. This technique kept it in place all day without creasing and a smoother appearance.

Both of these products are exceptional and care for your skin the way you would want.

Being the health conscious society we have become where everything we must include in our daily lives must be "super" when it comes to our internal health. Another "super" in my life specifically would be the store I choose to purchase all of my skin care and health care needs and that is Target. As you guys have seen in countless video hauls of mine I am a huge lover of Target so whenever something new and exciting comes along falling under the category of beauty I am on it!!

Now that 2016 is officially upon us it's time for some changes and unfortunately for me that meant on my face!!! Since November of this year when I turned 45 I have now noticed that time has made it's appearance and it is resting under my eyes!! 

Of course that means paying more attention to my internal health. Getting plenty of rest, drinking more water, eating more greens and fruits and of course exercise.

But what about my external one??

DERMA E pushed skincare forward in a new direction by fusing powerful vitamins and plants together with modern science called "Green Chemistry". Derma-E has pioneered the development of vitamin-rich, high performance antioxidant skincare solutions.The award-winning line features doctor-developed, consumer-tested and clinically-tested face care, body care and treatment products that are free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil and petrolatum. Every formula is cruelty-free, gluten-free and 100% vegan.
Firming DMAE-Eye Lift Is now available for purchase at your local Target but I got to sample a full-size preview through Brandbacker and after 30 days the results have been staggering!! First of all this product features DMAE which  is clinically proven to boost collagen for firmer, more resilient skin. It also contains  Argireline and Matrixyl. 
Argireline is made up of peptides , which are chains of amino acids that can affect how cells in the body work. When Argireline is applied to the skin, it is absorbed into the body and the cream’s chemical composition causes the facial muscles to contract with less force. This diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and can smooth out fine lines that appear with aging and is quite effective.
Matrixyl is a peptide that stimulates collagen synthesis and skin-repair. Which means it qualifies as a long-term aging system.
This product is amazing at smoothing lines and keeping the skin underneath your eyes fresh and dewy. All with no parabens, sulfates, gluten, lanolin,mineral and GMO free. Hard to believe that a product this natural can bear such amazing results but don't just take it from me!
MY BEFORE DERMA E (30 days ago) noticeable bags!!
AFTER 30 Days of Derma E (puffiness considerably gone and fewer lines)

My thoughts: This product was absolutely wonderful to use and the results were greater than I expected from and all-natural product, I love the lightness of the cream and the light fragrance. I applied this first thing in the morning after cleansing and moisturizing, It feels clean and cool my eyes feel refreshed, dewy and smooth and most of all the puffiness subsides almost instantly. Fewer lines are also noticeable with continued use as this has now become part of my daily night regiment as well. All in all I highly recommend this product and that you check out all the products Derma E has to offer at your local Target right now!!
