Beauty Heroes January Discovery: Maya Chia

It’s hard to believe it’s been 1 year since I first discovered the magic of Maya Chia- and all because of Beauty Heroes!  Some things don’t change, Beauty Heroes is at it again with Maya Chia taking center stage. You could say I’m not mad about it at all!  If you’re not familiar with Beauty Heroes let me introduce you to the green beauty “It” box.

Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot.  A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie at IBE, and she is truly one of the sweetest people.  Beauty Heroes is a monthly beauty service that selects only the best clean beauty brands.  Each month you can find one to two full size truly heroic products in each box.  The products typically range from skincare to haircare products.  However, every 3 months Beauty Heroes offers a makeup box as well that’s optional for members or non-members.  I absolutely love their “Use Less, Love More” philosophy.  By only getting one or two products, you allow yourself to truly experience them.  Of course you can trust their picks, as they are strict on their integrity standards.  What’s not to love about this whole concept?  As a Beauty Heroes Ambassador, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a movement.

Before I even dive into the Maya Chia review I first must tell you what makes them SO special. The all star ingredient in Maya Chia is the supercritical chia oil.  Not only is chia oil heralded for it’s fast absorbing ability, but also for it’s antioxidants, minerals, and omega’s- a skin’s dream team!  You can say bye to fine lines and wrinkles.  Plus, it has clinically been proven to increase hydration. Check out my full review on Maya Chia I did last year to learn about how they extract the chia oil!  Read about it here!

This month Maya Chia introduces us to their newest product release- The Eye Achiever.  I actually had the pleasure of testing it out several months ago- something that doesn’t always happen when it comes to Beauty Heroes Boxes.  So I feel this review will be very thorough!


Thoughts on the Eye Achiever-

First the formula comes in a dark glass rollerball bottle.  So different than any other eye cream or serum I’ve used.  The rollerball feels cool to the touch upon application and soothes my tired mama eyes(can I get a witness)?!  The formula is an oil and easily dispenses under the eye.  I’ve found a little goes a long way.  After swiping the rollerball under the eye, I take my ring finger which has the least amount of muscles so it’s the best to use since the eye area is so delicate and use a tapping motion starting from the inner corner of my eye and tap underneath the eye all the way up to the outer corner.  This helps it to seep into my skin a bit more.  I’ve even stuck the rollerball in the fridge overnight.  When I use it in the morning it’s an instant de-puffer for the under eyes- I’m all about waking up my eyes!

The biggest thing I’ve noticed from using the Eye Achiever is rested eyes.  I really can’t explain it.  It sounds weird even typing it.  My eyes just look well rested more than they did before.  Less tired looking, and dark.  If you do apply it in the morning be sure to use it sparingly if you’re wearing makeup.  I’ve found too much can cause foundation to come off easily due to the oil.  I haven’t even mentioned the ingredient list- which is amazing!  With ingredients like Brown Algae, sea fennel and vitamin C- just to name a few, this serum is loaded with the best of the best.

Thoughts on the sidekick- The Super Blend Pressed Serum-

The sidekick for this month is The Super Blend Pressed Serum Moisture Concentrate.  Although it is a serum it feels more like a balm to me.  A lot of people often ask why use a balm.  Oh so many reasons!  Balms are especially great for in the winter when skin needs extra protection from the elements.  This product in particular is an anti-aging powerhouse with ingredients like asthaxanthin- a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C and CoQ10.  These ingredients work together to give your skin a radiance.

Seriously, give this product a couple weeks and you will see what I’m talking about.  My skin felt so even, smooth and soft.  Many balms can make your skin feel dry in the morning but not this one.  My skin felt so hydrated and not greasy.  A little goes a long way with this baby too.  And the smell…ahhh SO amazing!  You’ll seriously want to inhale-be warned.   I applied this in upward strokes at night after cleansing and toning.  I didn’t need an additional moisturizer and my skin tends to be dry.  I especially loved using this when I was sick around my nose.  No raw, red nose because it was so protected using this.  Again another product that I can’t recommend enough!

    Which do you like better, the Beauty Heroes box or Art of Organics? I signed up for Art of Organics but I’m tempted to also sign up for Beauty Heroes!
