A Cream for All Skin Types: The Face Shop Chia Seed Hydrating Emulsion 130mls
My skin was being problematic; I don’t know why but these days my skin has no consistency. Some days it is dry, other days it is too oily. It could be just a change in seasons, but whatever the reason, it was time for me to try a new skin cream! Because of the situation with my face, I was looking for something mild. I came across the Chia Seed range promoted by The Face Shop; it interested me due to the fact that it is promoted for all skin types.
What could be better than a product that caters for everyone? I grabbed a bottle of the Chia Seed Hydrating Emulsion and off I went to test it. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now as my go to lotion for everyday hydration, I don’t use it when my skin is extremely oily or extremely dry. It is a nice middle of the road cream that doubles up well as either a night or day cream. It is very lightly scented, but it doesn’t smell traditionally perfumed. Instead, it smells a little bit like freshly cut cucumber. And how does my skin look now? My face has responded well to it in the sense that it feels much more balanced. My skin has a subtle glow. I even use it as a base under my makeup on particularly rough days, and it seems to work well, although you do have to wait much longer than you would before applying your makeup.
In general, Chia Seed Hydrating Emulsion product is designed to use after toner as part of the step system, but honestly, I just use it as a lotion. I don’t really bother with the big step by step routine – I prefer to just give my skin what it needs on any particular day. I’m eager to try the rest of the Chia Seed range! If you have problematic skin, I recommend it for you. It’s not heavy and it’s not too light. The pump bottle is great, too. If you keep the little cap handy you can pop it in your handbag and use it throughout the day, with no spills. The Face Shop is a popular Korean skincare brand with stores in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne, I highly recommend you check it out!
