The latest addition to my skincare routine is this new Maya Chia The Super Couple Ultra Luxe Face Oil Serum (30ml/$85)* with #1 superfood: supercritical chia seed oil. Chia seed oil is one of my all time favorite oils together with rosehip oil. I don’t know any other oils that are so obviously effective. It’s no wonder that chia is often called miraculous. Besides the fact that some clinical studies has shown that topical application of chia seed oil results in skin moisture increase, this oil also gives glow and softness to the skin.
The Super Couple face serum comes in a dark glass bottle with a dropper. The color of the oil is vivid orange, but though this might look a bit scary, it does not stain the skin at all. It’s a beauty oil with a gentle herbal scent and lightweight, non-greasy consistency, which makes it suitable for all skin types. Along with chia, there’s an ingredient called astaxanthin from green algae. I’ve never heard of astaxanthin before, but, apparently, it is a powerful antioxidant, which is effective in fighting free radicals even more than vitamin C or green tea.
The reason why this review is going to be one of the shortest I’ve even written, because I can’t think of any disadvantages, regarding this serum. I’ve been using it for almost 3 weeks now and love it to bits, because it makes my skin feel hydrated, fresh and healthy. I can even understand its price, which is honestly not that low, since high-performance luxury beauty products with quality ingredients don’t come cheap.
