Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum

I have used the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum as part of my daily skin care regimen. I apply this serum after I have cleansed my face just before applying my nighttime moisturizer. I have already started seeing the transformation in my skin since using this retinol serum. It helps to fight wrinkles and provides hydration, for visibly smoother, rejuvenated skin.

I’m always looking for products that are non-evasive and help to keep my skin looking younger and healthier. This product definitely delivered!


About Valentia Skin Care

The Roman Goddess of healing, Valentia, relied on nature’s gifts to heal the citizens of Umbria. Whether matriarchs seeking to maintain their youthful look or farmers seeking help for sun damaged skin, Valentia used berries, herbs, barks and other natural ingredients. We also rely on all natural ingredients due to their protective, preventative and corrective powers.

Just like our namesake, Valentia Skin Care products have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients that will repair and protect the skin.

After performing extensive research into what skin care customers find most important, we found an overwhelming demand for skin care that is natural, free of toxins and paraben-free. Natural ingredients with an organic base have proven most effective at repairing skin damaged by sun or wind, preventing signs of aging such as wrinkles, dark spots, and reversing the effects of oxidative stress on the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should I start using a Retinol? 


We recommend to start using a Retinol at age 30. This is the age at which collagen production can start to slow down, and fine lines and wrinkles may begin to form. Starting at age 30, using a Retinol 3 times a week can help slow the aging process. For women 40+ we recommend using the Retinol ever other night, or every night if your skin can tolerate it.

Which one is for me, a Retinol serum or Retinol cream?

To maximize the benefits from Retinols we recommend using Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum and Night Revive Retinol Cream in combination with each other. The serum will penetrate deep into the skin, and the cream will lock it into place.

Alternatively, if you are looking for just one Retinol product. We recommend the Night Revive Retinol Serum for oily/combo to normal skin types, and the Night Revive Retinol Cream for dry-normal or sensitive skin types. The cream is a richer formulation that will help prevent your skin from experiencing further dryness.

Can I use this Retinol serum during the daytime? 


No. Retinols are meant to be used only at night as they can make the skin more sensitive to damage from the sunlight. When using a Retinol at night, make sure to use an SPF of 20 or higher during the day to protect your skin.

Allure Beauty Box Review June 2016


Allure Beauty Box is a monthly beauty subscription from Allure Magazine. Each month they send both deluxe and full-size samples from mostly high-end brands!

Check out all my Allure Beauty Box reviews!


The Subscription Box: Allure Beauty Box

The Cost: $15 a month

The Products: Deluxe and full-size beauty and makeup samples

Ships to: the US






Each box includes an information booklet that details each item included in the box.  What I like about the booklet is that the Allure editors detail the reasons they included each item in the box.


Klorane Shampoo with Mango Butter | 3.38 oz | Value $5 |

This is a hydrating shampoo that cleanses and nourishes your hair. It smells sweet, like ripe mango. It’s definitely a tropical scent which I love!


Pur~lisse Blue Lotus SPF 30 Essential Day Moisturizer | 5 oz | Value $20 |

Pur~lisse Blue Lotus Eye Adore Serum | .24 oz | Value $31 |

I absolutely love Pur~lisse products! I have sampled the Eye Adore Serum before and it is amazing. The moisturizer quickly became a new favorite of mine too. It’s a lightweight lotion that protects against UVA and UVB rays without clogging pores or leaving your skin slick.



The mask I received helps to visibly minimize pores, refines rough skin, and soothes troubled and irritated skin. I love how soft my face felt after using this mask.


Kardashian Beauty Cabana Bronze Matte Bronzer  | .07 oz | Value $2 |

Unfortunately, my bronzer arrived damaged! However, I did contact customer service to request a replacement because I really wanted to try this bronzer out.


Julep Nail Color in Katie | FULL SIZE | Value $14 |

This nail color is an orchid iridescent chrome. I really love this color!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $78! I think that’s great for a $15 beauty box. I’m so happy with everything in my box this month and love the great mix of quality products.

What do you think of the Allure Beauty Box this month?

Have a beautiful day!
