My favorite skincare ingredient is retinol, with Vitamin C running second. Imagine having both of those anti-aging incredients in one product! I was so happy to find out Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum, (1.18 fl oz / $35), has both of these potent ingredients and more. It is a cruelty-free, vegan friendly, USA made brand and is formulated with natural ingredients. I've enjoyed other items from the brand and was really happy to sample this as I was completely out of retinol. I'm pleased to report that I really like this product and I'll tell you why.
This retinol serum is housed in a dark glass bottle, which keeps it protected from light. It is delivered with a dropper to control how much serum you wish to use. The retinol serum is a white fluid which is a conditioning formula. I could tell from the first touch that it would be a moisturizing type of retinol serum. I really, and I mean really, like that kind of retinol delivery because it's safe even for sensitive skin.
The ingredients include:
Retinol, (Vit A), which works at the cellular leval to reduce wrinkles, increase collagen production, manage breakouts and evens out skin discolorations.
Vitamin E, a moisturizing ingredient that provides intense hydration to help reduce the drying effects of retinol.
Vitamin C boosts the effects of the retinol. It is also a powerful anti-oxidant which works to reduce free radicals left by the environment, and helps prevent pre-mature aging.
Squalene, which happens to be derived from pure natural olive oil and helps to moisturize the skin.
The full ingredient list is as follows:
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
Valentia says this serum will diminish wrinkles, stimulate collagen, improve skin tone, manage breakouts and condition the skin. It is my opinion, from using this serum, that the Night Revive Retinol Serum ABSOLUTELY delivers on the claims. I've been really pleased with it and I find it does everything that it says it will.
It takes very little product to be effective so it's going to last you a long time. I'm really happy with it. The only suggestion I would make to the company is to put this in a pump top type of container so that it is light free on administration. Please use sunscreen always, but especially when using a retinol product.
