TOMOSON TIMES: Valentia True Glow Eye Cream

Valentia Skin Care was generous enough to send me their True Glow Eye Cream as well as their Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask (a review will be up soon) for free through Tomoson to review!

Valentia describes their True Glow Eye Cream as a corrective eye treatment that is formulated with Vitamin C, Astaxanthin and Organic oil. The product is meant to correct dark circles as well as reduce puffiness.
Here's a rundown of the some of the ingredients and their benefits (found on the side of the box):
Astanxanthin: an antioxidant that increases moisture levels, smooths fine lines and wrinkles as well as restores elasticity to your skin.
Resistem: Natural plant stem cells that repair and protect your skin from stress related aging.
Vitamin C: Meant to leave your skin visibly brighter and smoother
Organic Rosehip oil: provides intense hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Arnica: An anti-inflammatory agent that is key to the restorative process  
This product is also cruelty free, alcohol free and paraben free. It is also 98% organic.

As you can see in the photo above, the cream is ever so slightly peach toned. It has a very slight scent to it...almost like citrus. It's neither offensive or irritating. The cream seeps in very quickly and is not sticky at all. One pump is all you need for application to both eyes. It is gentle and does not burn if I accidentally apply too close to the rims of my eyes. I really enjoy using this product every night. The skin around my eyes always feels dry because I tend to rub them too often. This really soothes that and adds a bit of a cooling effect for me. While I cannot yet comment on how effective this product is when it comes to my dark circles, I have noticed that I have less puffiness when I wake up in the morning. Overall, this product is a win for me, and I highly recommend it giving it a try if you have not found your holy grail eye cream yet!

*I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review. I am not being paid for this review nor will I receive any monetary compensation if anyone should purchase the product through the link used in this review.*

I love shoes. I love all kinds of them. Sporty, elegant, preppy and comfy. All our welcome in my household! Why am I blabbing about my love for footwear? Well because there's an EXCITING GIVEAWAY going on right now!!
Alterre is giving away a Black Heel Starter Kit just in time for the holiday season! This starter kit normally retails for $180.00. The unique concept about Alterre shoes is that each base pair of shoes comes with two different kinds of straps to change the look of the shoes.
These are the Black suede mules they are giving away, with the two different straps in action! (The kit also comes with a handy travel bag.)
Using the black suede Jackie look, 
Using the evening sky Marilyn look
Do you see how the first image is a more casual yet classy day shoe with those black straps, and how the second image looks more like an elegant night shoe?! Isn't that a cool concept?
Here's a handy infographic that demonstrates how these shoes work!

The giveaway will run until December 16th 2015. There will be one winner. You can enter using the widget below! Good Luck!!
