Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask Review

9:00 AM

Today I am reviewing another product by one of my new found favorite skincare lines, Valentia. This is a skin detoxifying clay mask that claims to draw out impurities, improve skin tone, reduce pore size, firm, and strengthen skin. Before I get into my review, I want to go over what the ingredients are in this product as well as the benefits they each pack.

This mask contains five key ingredients.

- Kaolin Clay which are minerals that draw impurities, improve skin tone, and tighten pores for smoother firmer skin.
- Plant Stem Cells which naturally decrease the level of pro-aging toxins and work to soothe the skin, reduce redness, and improve evenness.
- Spirulina which is a botanical stimulant full of vitamins that hydrate the skins surface and contribute to tissue regeneration of the skin.
- CoQ10 which lessens the appearance of wrinkles by reducing free radical damage and stimulating health collagen production.
- Hibiscus and Cherry Fibers which both lend their anti-aging properties to firm and reinforce the skin, helping to reduce the creation of new wrinkles.

One of my favorite things about this company is how up front they are with their ingredients and how well they back up their claims of what their products can do. The ability to know exactly what is going onto my skin is a crucial part of my routine as I want to use as natural of products as possible. Valentia continues to impress me with their line of skincare and gives me hope that I will achieve the best skin possible while using their products.

With this mask you are going to notice some short term results and long term results. Given the fact the amount given can last up to 5 months, I would say a $25.00 price tag is quite inexpensive and gives you ample sampling time to find out of it's right for you. In the short term you should notice the mask drawing out dirt, oil, and other skin impurities, improving skin tone and texture, and leaving your skin feeling smoothed and refreshed. For the long term you will notice that your enlarged pores will be reduced, your skin will be firmer and more strengthened, and you will have clearer skin with less breakouts.

The formula is thick and does have a grainy texture to it due to the exfoliating properties. It applied with ease and did not require a large amount to cover my entire face. It does carry a lovely scent to it, to me it smelled mostly fruity and reminded me of a blackberry type scent. It smells very refreshing and it does linger slightly on the skin.

Here is my face before using the mask. I suffer from hyper-pigmentation, hormonal breakouts, as well as some minor fine lines. The issue I constantly struggle with is my discoloration and redness due to my pigmentation issues. This picture was taken after fully cleaning my face with no other products applied.

To use this product, generously apply on face carefully avoiding the eye area. Leave on the skin for 15 to 20 minutes or until the mask is fully dried. Once it is dried then simply wipe it off with a damp cloth soaked in warm water. As the mask has natural fibers, be sure to use circular motions to take it off which will help remove the dead skin as well as exfoliating in the process.

After I had applied the mask, I did experience some minor stinging around my nose and over some parts of my cheeks. It was not uncomfortable but a noticeable "pinch' like feeling. It faded less than a minute after applying. The formula felt cool on my skin and as it dried, it did not feel overly tight nor uncomfortable. It took about 20 minutes for my mask to fully dry.

This is my face immediately after removing the mask. I instantly felt that my skin was extremely soft to the touch. I did have a mild redness all over the areas I had covered but it only lasted a few minutes afterward. The redness can easily be attributed to my pigmentation issues so I do not consider that an issue at all. My skin felt smooth and fully exfoliated which I was quite surprised by as I didn't expect it to fully deep clean my face like it did.

Overall, I am very impressed with the ingredients in this product and how well it works in just one session. I have been using this product once a week in order to not overly exfoliate or dry out my skin and I have already noticed my skin being more evenly toned and definitely much softer. I am impressed by the price of this mask as I honestly find the quality alone to worth far more, so I feel like you are getting an amazing deal with this mask and I doubt you can find one that does this good of a job without costing you greatly.

Here is my final before and after for comparison.

I continue to enjoy this brand of skincare and am excited to add in more of their products to my routine as I am seeing great results.
