Beauty masks are my favorite skincare beauty product, the best part of my anti-aging beauty routine. Korean beauty products are also some my most favorite discoveries because their products are fun, edgy, have cute packaging, and work. I got to try three masks from WHEN which gave me the excuse to give myself a few spa nights. I started with the "10 PM" mask, at 10pm. It contains collagen, nano platinum, and watermelon extract. I love the refreshing feel of the gel mask and the light herbal fragrance. I decided to save the leftover herbal 'juice' left in the packaging for my foot soak that worked out well. My idea of spa time is enjoying a facial mask and foot soak on a Sunday night watching my favorite realty shows, drinking coconut water or wine, while looking through my weekly magazines. My other two "When" masks were called "Snow Magic" and "Travelmate". "When you want to lighten up, put on Snow Magic!" Snow Magic contains niacinamide and aloe vera leaf extract for brighter, glowing skin. and "Travelmate" "When you are on the road, take along When Travelmate!" It contains Swiss Alpine herbal extracts. This one was my favorite. The instructions recommend leaving the bio-cellulose mask on for 30 minutes but I always double up everything since I'm getting older and more thirsty. lol You got to double up after you turn 40! These are great after a day out in the sun at the beach or park and your skin is crying to be moisturized. All leave your skin feeling soft and glowing. They are very refreshing and make great gifts. "When" will you treat your girlfriends or mother with a few of these? They will appreciate it. "When" masks can be found at Sephora, Ulta, Bartell Drugs, Rickys NYC, Starboard Cruise Services and ONLINE at Birchbox, Anthroplogie, and BeautyChoice.com.

Another impressive skincare product from Valencia. Valentia Clearlift Revitalizing Serum has some new and exiting ingredients I have never tried before like Gotu Kola which lessens the appearance of scars and increases skin firmness and Wakame Bioferment (Seaweed) which increases skin oxygen consumption to detoxify and boost antioxidant defense. I love trying anything new that is natural and organic that helps me fight wrinkles! It also contains licorice, lactic acid, and argan oil. Upon application I liked the citrusY scent and its smooth and creamy non-greasy texture. I put some on after a day at the beach forgetting to wear sunscreen and surprisingly it quickly got rid of all the redness. My skin felt moisturized and soft. The natural ingredients also have healing properties. I received a free sample from Amazon for my honest review. Backed by BrandBacker. I like seeing the people behind the product. I follow Valencia on Intagram. You can also find them at FaceBook. The vintage background illustrations were done by a young Jacqueline Bouvier ( a #natural beauty) during a trip with her cousin to Europe. The book is "One Special Summer." #naturalbeauty #organic #crueltyfree #parabenfree

Royal Rose Hydrating Serum is another great new find from Valentia. Serum has always been one of my skin staples. This is the first serum I've tried that isn't stinky or thick and greasy. It's very hydrating, moisturizing, and refreshing. Besides my face I also like putting it on my neck and the top of my hands. It leaves your skin soft and glowing. When I sometimes go throughout the day without makeup I wear it for the nice healthy glow. It has a pretty light floral scent of rose. The pump is easy and convenient to use. Some of the nourishing ingredients include Rosa Damascena, Rosehip seed oil, evening primrose oil, bearberry,and lavender. Great for sensitive skin because it doesn't contain any junk or unnatural ingredients. Alcohol free and paraben free. Definitely a keeper. I was given a free sample in exchange for my honest opinion. Backed by BrandBacker.

Another OZ Naturals anti-aging beauty find for my aging skin! OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol serum contains clinical strength retinol, astaxanthin, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin E- important ingredients with antioxidants that promote collagen production and minimizes wrinkles and fine lines. When applying the serum to my face the first time I could instantly feel it firming my face. I could feel the light tingling sensation from the active ingredients. My forehead and brow furrow is my problem area. The serum helped firm this area. What I also love about OZ Naturals besides being natural and organic is that they are Cruelty Free and Made in the USA. I've tried so many expensive and over rated anti-aging products containing useless shiny and glittery fillers with 'meh' results. It was really eye opening finding so many quality effective beauty products on Amazon at half the price of over-rated, over the counter beauty products. I received this complimentary bottle of serum from OZ Naturals from BrandBacker in exchange for my honest opinion. Sponsored post.
