*Boost skin hydration with TheFaceShop Chia Seed Boosting Essence - review and photos


TheFaceShop - Chia Seed Boosting Essence review and photos

When my skin is not properly hydrated, especially when I use skincare products that do not deliver the hydration what they are suppose to, I wake up with pillow creases on my face. Yuck!!! 
Before going out, I used to wake up earlier just to have time to properly moisturize and massage my facial skin in order to improve blood flow, otherwise I would have looked really scary. Really, my face in the morning was full of pillow creases and I was looking horrible, being impossible to get out of the house like that. 
 
Well, I am having a time when I don't experience them anymore and for this I am hugely thankful to TheFaceShop - Chia Seed Boosting Essence I am reviewing today. And I'm sure it's because of this essence, cause the face cream that I am using right now it's not a moisturizing one and used to get those pillow creases while using it.

  I did not know chia seeds' properties before getting this product. They are a great source of omega 3 and fibers, contain antioxidants, calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, reduce food cravings, help you stay hydrated etc. Lately chia seed extract has been incorporated in skincare products because it retains moisture 10 times its own weight!

Product description:
TheFaceShop - Chia Seed Boosting Essence is a first-step boosting essence for use when the skin is thirsty after washing face. A boosting essence used during the first step of skincare. Provides active ingredients to tired and puffy skin and fundamentally moisturizes the skin. A natural jelly moisture film absorbing moisture 10 times its own weight. Chia seeds that are filled with moisture deliver moisture deep between dead skin cells to keep the inner parts of the skin clear and moisturized. Contains 100% chia seeds water instead of water. Chia seeds water is extracted within 24 hours via the Fresh method, instead of water delivers the vitality of the highly pure chia seeds.

 It is a formula without 7 aditives (free of paraben, benzophenone, artificial coloring, alcohol, mineral oil, animal sourced materials, and triethanolamine), safety tested, contains organic chia seeds, environment friendly. Sounds great!


Application:
Every morning and evening after washing the face, pump 1-2 times according to the following sequence and gently spread onto the face and let absorb.

My opinion:
Asian essences, cause TheFaceShop is a Korean brand, are actually serums with a lighter consistency and potent ingredients, offering numerous benefits for the skin. In case you don't know, Asian women have such amazing skin because they have a skincare routine and this is the order they apply products:
1. Boosting essence > 2. Toner > 3. Lotion > 4. Eye & spot essence > 5. Essence 6. Cream

The product I am reviewing is a boosting essence and I apply it twice a day:
- before applying cream in the morning
- when I go to bed at night, after facial cleansing

TheFaceShop - Chia Seed Boosting Essence - texture
 The essence is transparent, having kind of a jelly texture and it feels watery, full of moist when applied on the skin. I like spreading it on the skin and then let it absorb. It leaves a slightly sticky layer on the skin but after a while it feels less and less sticky. I only need to pump twice. I find TheFaceShop Chia Boosting Essence amazingly hydrating, moistening my skin extremely well, offering a slight glow which makes my skin look really fresh. 

Before using it, the skin on my nose was flaky and the foundation or BB creams made it look ugly. I swear that I can now apply foundation without using a scrub which never happened to me before!!! And as I said above, there are no more pillow creases...so, goodbye dehydrated skin! 

Although my skin is sensitive and I was afraid the chia seed extract will irritate it, I haven't experienced any skin breakouts, rush or itches.I also like this product because the ingredients are natural (glad to see that the main ingredient is not plain water) and it is dermatologically tested

 Packaging:
The essence comes in a 80 ml. matte bottle made of sturdy glass which it won't turn into pieces in case it falls down. I like that it comes with a pump, the active ingredients maintaining their properties intact that way.

  5. Nu prea am incercat produse asiatice, asta suna bine. De putin timp folosesc un set de produse care nu se gasesc pe la noi si le testez foarte atenta pentru ca au texturi noi pentru mine.

  20. Un produs pentru hidratare cu o cantitate atat de generoasa, merita incercat, banuiesc ca este si spornic si te va tine o perioada lungaaa.
