If you follow my blog you know that I am a big fan of Valentia Skin Care products. I have many of their products for women, which I will link below. Since I love them I wanted my boyfriend to try their Men’s line of skin care.

There scrub for men (which can be found here), let me just say it smells amazing. He has been using it for the past couple days and he said he really likes it. He has not used too many scrubs but would definitely incorporate this into his daily routine because it doe not really take up anymore time then what he was already doing. This scrub removes dead skin cells, deep cleans pores, and  removes excess dirt and oils. It also helps prevent irritation from shaving, such as razor bumps and ingrown hairs. It is formulated with coconut oils to help hydrate skin and establish the skins natural antimicrobial barrier leaving the skin smooth, nourished and more firm. The Valentia scrub help fade acne scars and reduce clogged pores. I might steal this back from my boyfriend and use it myself.

Some of Valentia Skincare for Women favorites are here, here and here.

Everyone can use a good pair of headphones now of days. Whether it is for music streaming, hands free calling or to cancel out noise on an airplane. Many of these headsets can get pretty pricey. Yes they do great things, but spending hundreds of dollars on a pair isn’t in the some peoples budget. Well I have a perfect pair for you. The Ausdom M05 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones (found here, expensive ones here). These headphones can be used both wired and wireless. They are well under $100 so they do not brake the bank.  The headphones have a super soft ear cushion that provides long lasting comfort, 20 hours of battery usage, 40 mm speaker drivers for clear listening. The ear cups rotate for easy storage and transport. They also come with a storage bag. These headphones are definitely a great alternative to the more expensive ones and I have really enjoyed mine.

Valencia Skin Care

                 
 My skin has been breaking out tremendously so I decided to do something about it. I have tried many skincare products. Some work some don’t. Lately I have been using a variety of products and I think I have finally figured out a skincare routine that works for my face.


Twice a week I give myself my own sort spa facial.  After I cleanse my face I use the Valentia External Youth Exfoliating Scrub, which can be found here. This scrub removes dead skin as well as, softens and brightens the skin. It is one of my favorite products and works really well. After that I use the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask pulls out all the impurities in your face, reduces pore size, and tightens skins. I have tried a few clay mask and I like this one the best. It stays on for 10-20 minutes and leaves your skin feeling firm and clean. It made my pimple disappear by the next morning. You can find the mask here. When I am really feeling dry I follow the detox mask up with the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. I usually only do this once a week. This mask secures moisture, boost collagen, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Not to leave out that your skin feels extra healthy and glowing afterwards. You can find the hydration mask here.  I finish my facial with the Valentia True Glow Eye Cream. It nourishes and hydrates the skin around your eye area which reduces wrinkles and tightens skin. Lets face it as we all get older we need this. The eye cream can be found here. Then lastly I add a serum. The one I been using lately and love is the Valentia Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum. It is a anti-wrinkle serum that brightens, hydrates and renews skin texture. The Revitalizing serum can be found here. It gives your skin an added layer of protection from the sun, and drying wind, as well as helps keep the moisture in. It minimizes fine lines as well as increases skin’s natural thickness, for healthier looking skin. The Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum corrects the appearance of acne scars, unwanted pigmentation, and corrects skin discoloration. It also increases skin oxygen consumption to detoxify and boost antioxidant defense. You should always add a serum to your skin before adding your favorite moisturizer to finish off your facial. What is your skincare routine and some of your favorite products? The Valentia products are linked below. Hope you enjoy!

Lately I have been struggling with breakouts so I am always looking for good skin care. My skin is combination, meaning that it is dry in some areas and normal in others. To fix the dry skin I have tried many different moisturizers, some have worked, some have not. What I really found that works are hydration/ moisture mask. One that I have been using lately and really like is the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask, which can be found here . I have tried many Valentia productions and I have not found one I did not like. I will be doing a review on more of their products soon.

The Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask secures moisture while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It is easy to apply and only needs to stay on for 15-20 mins. I have been using it for almost 2 weeks and I can really tell a difference in my skin. It is a lot brighter and smoother. I have experience less dry spots, which is great during the winter months. The mask has many anti-aging ingredients, such as Organic Sea Buckthorn and Rosehip Seed oils. As well as Japanese Green Tea and Aloe Vera. Many of these work to prevent blemishes, wrinkles, dryness and support skin elasticity. 
I would recommend the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask. Their products are all alcohol and paraben free, cruelty free to animals, and affordable. Below I have linked some Valentia products. If you try them come back and please let me know how you liked them.
