One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to take better care of myself. In the rush to make sure everyone else in my family has what they need, my doctor’s appointments, haircuts, and such always seem to come last. But, I vow that 2016 will be different!
And, the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day has been the perfect time for me to get started. The downtime has given me a great opportunity to catch up on all of those things that I have been too busy to do all year long.
One example is indulging in some personal pampering time. It’s rare that I have time to lounge, catch up on my reading, and give myself a facial. But, that’s just what I did today!
I was excited to try the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask by Valentia, because I am already a fan of their skin care products, particularly the Vitamin C Even Glow Serum. And, when I read that this new rejuvenation treatment provides both rapid results and long-lasting effects by helping to erase the signs of aging, naturally I was intrigued.
The Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask is a gel type of mask. The color (baby food peach) is somewhat off-putting. But, it smelled wonderfully clean, so I dove in.
The mask was easy to use. I simply applied liberally to my face, taking care to avoid my eyes. I left it on for about 20 minutes until it was completely dry. Then I washed it off gently with warm water and a wash cloth.
My skin felt wonderfully clean and soft. There was a noticeable brightness and pinkness, like a blush. And, my laugh lines were definitely less noticeable.
According to Valentia, the magic in this mask is the combination of the natural, restorative ingredients, including a Silk Protein Amino Acid blend, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, and CoQ10. These ingredients don’t just provide a temporary surface treatment, they also increase collagen production, for hydrated, firm skin.
Like all Valentia products, the Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask’s ingredients are organic, natural, toxin and paraben-free, made using sustainable energy, vegan friendly, animal cruelty free, and made in the USA.
The mask is available on Amazon. The List Price is $54.99, but with Amazon Prime, you can receive yours for only $24.99. And, while you’re there, definitely take a look at some of the other amazing Valentia products like Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub, True Glow Eye Cream, Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask and more.
As for me, I think I will use this final day of vacation to take a bubble bath!
