Skin care has always been important to me but it wasn’t until I turned 30 and began to see visible changes that I really started to take it more seriously with a daily/nightly skin care routine. I love trying new beauty and skin care products! When I was offered an opportunity to work with Alina Skin Care, I was super excited to learn more about their products, try them out, and see how they work.

I received two complimentary products to facilitate my review: Vitamin C Serum and Ultimate Eye Cream. My skin type is pretty normal but as a mom/entrepreneur who is almost always up late, I tend to get tired looking eyes (either dark circles or a little puffy under eye baggage).

I used both products for a month and here is what I found:

Vitamin C Serum:

The Alina skincare Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Anti-Aging Formula comes in a medium-sized glass bottle with a pump. I love skin care products that are easy to use, so this was great! Alina Skincare claims to have superior ingredients that deliver superior results. Their Vitamin C Ester delivers vitamin C in the finest form and is clinically proven to be gentler on the skin while delivering dramatic results. It also includes Inflacin, a patented formula which is clinically proven to calm irritated skin. The Alina Antioxidant Blend is made of a unique blend of green & white tea to help protect against damaging oxidative stress and free radicals. Finally, the Osomes is another patented formula that is clinically proven to deliver more active ingredients deeper into your skin for better results.

I applied a small amount to my face and neck each morning (you can also use it for morning and night) and found the product to feel very light and natural. It has a hint of a citrus scent which was very pleasant. After using the product, my skin was certainly more hydrated and smooth. I really liked how comfortable this product feels on my skin. Some products are a bit heavier and this one feels just like your natural skin after application. I used this product during winter, which is very dry in Utah, and was very thankful for the extra hydration it brought to my skin. I also think it will feel very soothing during the hotter summer months when my skin is more exposed to the hot sun.

Overall I would definitely recommend this product! It’s also on the more affordable side, so if you are hoping to find a great skin care product you can use regularly, Alina Skincare would be a great choice!

Ultimate Eye Cream:

This is another product I was super excited to try! The struggle is real with the dark circles under my tired eyes. The Ultimate Eye Cream comes in a small tube and lasts for quite awhile. It is designed to work immediately to help reduce fine wrinkles while brightening and smoothing the eye area. It is made up of an innovative blend of red microalgae, oat kernel extract, hyaluronic acid, and a proprietary Alina antioxidant blend, which has been created for all skin types.

Unlike the Vitamin C Serum, this one has no scent. Let me warn you, a tiny amount goes a LONG way! The tiniest of drops on your fingertip is plenty to apply to both under eye areas. The eye cream is clear with a white tint to it and feels a little more slippery than the Vitamin C Serum. However, it dries SUPER fast and once it’s dried, you don’t feel it at all. I used this product every night before bed and was pleased with the results. I could feel a difference in my under eye skin and it did also help reduce the appearance of dark circles. This product is also very affordable and because you get SO much usage from the small tube, I would say the value is pretty incredible. Again, I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a regular skin care routine as something for daily use.

Together, the Alina Skincare Vitamin C Serum and the Ultimate Eye Cream compliment each other very well delivering great results at a great value. Speaking of value, I wanted to tell you guys about how you can get a FREE full size product from Alina Skincare!
