Valentia : True Glow Eye Cream #Review #ValentiaBeauty

IMAG3791

Next on the Valentia beauty line, comes the True Glow Eye Cream for review. I use eye creams and serums on a daily basis and twice a day because I find this area tends to reflect signs of aging sooner than the rest of my face. My goal is to always keep this area hydrated and moisturized at all times because of this!

Valentia’s True Glow Eye Cream comes in a glass bottle with a pump action top. The product advertises as being an Intense Corrective Eye treatment, which not only works as a preventing regimen but also aids with current issues. The eye cream helps with:

  • Reducing Fine lines and Wrinkles
  • Restoring Radiance by helping repair and nourish the delicate skin around our eyes
  • Hydration from oils to Anti-inflammatory ingredients to reduce puffiness that may further diminish the appearance of aging skin.
  • Tightening the area around the eye by aiding with elasticity and targeting dark circles. which can make a person look tired and cause an irregular skin tone/color effect to the area.

Ingredients (as listed on the package):

Retail Price Point: $25.00 via Amazon for a 1.18 ounce glass bottle with a pump action top.

Verdict:
I always give myself about 3 to 4 weeks when it comes to trying any beauty creams and serums. I need to know if the effects I experience belong to the product I am testing or they are just the remaining benefits from the one prior. I can then also get an idea how well a product performs! The first week of trying the eye cream from Valentia, I noticed the product tends to linger longer on the skin than my former eye cream. As much as I love quick absorbing products, my prior eye cream left no residue but also no hydrating protective layer. It would just vanish within four hours and if the day was even breezy in nature, I could feel that tight feeling your skin gets when it’s drying out too much. The True Glow Eye Cream from Valentia left a protective layer that kept my skin looking smoother longer through out the day. I used the product twice a day and experienced zero irritations from use. The thin layer allowed for make-up application after and no odd little rolled up residue balls formed hours later, or worse, when your make-up separates making it look like you forgot to blend. None of that happened! I did not notice fine line repair by week three, but I can state that the product is phenomenal went it comes to working as a prevention aid. I looked more awake because the skin in that area was smooth and naturally plump, not swollen from my seasonal allergies! My eyes water at night and when I sleep, creating what I call “teary eyes”. I get red streaks from the irritation if I forget to apply eye cream or applied a poorly formulated one. I can state the Valentia’s True Glow Eye cream prevented any red marks from setting in, so I woke up looking fresh and not like I have been weeping! This is an eye cream I would continue to use but also along with the Ultra Plumping Hydrating Mask from Valentia. These two products help each other out and I get a balanced appearance that is noticeable with this duo.

Ozeri: CardioTech ProSeries Wrist Cuff Blood Pressure Monitor, Model BP01K Review #Ozeri

IMAG2260-1-1

Health and wellness are a big thing in this house. Both hubby and I try very hard to take care of ourselves, and sometimes the best way to do that is by keeping an eye on things like weight, blood sugar and blood pressure. Up until a couple weeks ago, we did that by sitting in that icky chair at the supermarket and using the communal blood pressure cuff to get an idea of where we stood. And then Ozeri made us an offer we couldn’t refuse. Would we like to try and review their CardioTech Pro Series Wrist Cuff Blood Pressure Monitor (Model BP01K)? They didn’t have to ask twice.

This little Ozeri cuff packs all the features of it’s big brothers at the supermarket into a package smaller than your coffee cup. We both dove right in to find that this Ozeri wrist cuff has a plethora features, not the least of which is a memory function for two different people, for over 180 entries (!!) tracked. So tracking your blood pressure is a breeze. Did I mention that batteries are included? Have I mentioned how much I love that? Batteries are included (2AA) and I love that. Three buttons with a big, easy to read display LCD display. I would like to see it back-lit (for that you need to upgrade to the BP2M model), but at this price point it’s not a detriment at all. And since both hubby and I have family with a history of hypertension, the Automatic Hypertension Indicator is appreciated. It will also notify you of any detected arrhythmia. It’s quick, it’s painless. It fits pretty much any wrist easily and comfortably. This little guy is a winner, and something no home should be without.

Retail Price Point: $32.95 via Amazon and the product comes with a 5-year Warranty

I usually try to nitpick anything I get to try, because I’d want to know if I was buying this what I could find wrong. If I were pressed, I would say that there are cheaper ones out there. But then it becomes a game of “How cheap should one be with one’s health?”. Build quality matters. Component quality matters. We’ve owned Ozeri products in the past, and they are built well and built to last. So for my money, Ozeri has earned my trust. I think you can trust them too.
