Disclaimer: I received the Valentina Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask from Brand Backer free to use and review for my honest opinion.
The Roman Goddess of healing, Valentia, relied on natureâ€™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.

As you can see, it’s a full size jar of a clay mask that contains not alcohol or parabens in it. The photo shows you before I used it and before I stirred it before using. I have only been able to use it twice since receiving it due to my husband having an accident, needing surgery and adjusting to being home after a few days in hospital. The first time I used it I don’t think I used it long enough. The instructions say 15-20 minutes and I think I was rushing it. I put it on (after stirring it back to the correct consistency which was really easy) and I walked around getting ready to take a shower. I could feel the freshness of it on my skin immediately. I don’t think I let it sit on my face long enough but I wet my hands and removed it in the circular motion as directed. My face felt clean and clear and all I did was put a moisturizer on after drying my face. My second time using I left it on for more like twenty minutes and it dried much better and I had it on more evenly. I could feel it tingling right away. I still don’t think I had enough on. I don’t know how my I was supposed to use in terms of thickness. I had more on my cheeks thank my chin and forehead but I think that was my not trying to get it even or knowing how to get it even. Before using the Valentina Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask I had only ever used a sheet mask so this was a new experience for me.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014PJLKJ6 it’s $25.00 for a jar that is 4 ounces and is a four month supply.
Will I continue to use it? Yes! Will I buy it again? Yes!
What didn’t I like? Waiting for it to dry but that’s just me being impatient. I have very sensitive skin and it was great on my skin. I would suggest that you use a moisterizer with an SPF in it if you’re going to go outside after using it.
Sorry, I didn’t take any before, during or after photos because of crazy couple weeks it’s been here.
