Valentia: Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer

I've been using this brightening moisturizer from Valentia for the last month and have noticed a considerable difference in my skin's texture and tone.  I got it from Valentina Amazon and with Amazon Prime it arrived in two days. It arrived in a heavy amber glass bottle inside a white box.  Amazon had put it into a bubble mailer, so the box was crushed during shipping, but the bottle inside came in perfect condition.

The Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer doesn't contain any mineral oil, parabens or fragrances.  It's a brightening/lightening/anti-aging cream that uses high end ingredients that are less likely to irritate sensitive skin.  Kojic Acid is a mushroom extract known to lighten melanin rich spots in the skin and even out your skin's tone.  Hyaluronic Acid is an exfoliating moisturizer that absorbs moisture into the top layers of skin and stimulates collagen production.  The overall ingredients list are something you'd find on a 1.5oz facial moisturizer for twice the price, so I can say that the $25 price tag for a big 4oz glass bottle is quite a steal (especially when a little goes a loooong way).

The pump lets out a metered pea sized dollop of moisturizer that is plenty to do your whole face after a shower.  I use two when I skin is dry (before bed).

In the past I have reacted poorly to products with Shea Butter because of my allergy to latex.  But, in the last two years I've noticed that my skin hasn't been getting rashy when I use Shea Butter moisturizers that don't have fragrance or drying alcohols that irritate my skin first.  I'm actually really glad about this because Shea Butter is a wonderful moisturizer for very dry skin and it is in so many products that I've been wanting to try (from hair treatments to moisturizers to lip balms to bar soaps). 

I've also been using this moisturizer on my arms (where I get very rough eczema-prone patches) as well as on the scars on my leg.  I have noticed a huge difference in my scars, especially.  It appears to be accelerating the lightening process! Even with using four pumps per arm, daily, I've barely made a dent in the 4oz bottle (a little over 1oz is gone after regular usage twice a day).
