Hello my lovelies..
For a person with oily skin like me it is really hard to find a good moisturizer that will not make me look shiny throughout the day. Tough right ? I know. That is why I am always on the lookout for oil free moisturizers. I love my Clinique moisture surge but it does make me shiny after few hours. Then I discovered this
The Face Shop Chia Seed No Shine Intense Hydrating Cream. I have been using this for more than a month and ready to talk about it in detail.
Price – 1990/-
Product description – The Chia Seed No Shine Intense Hydrating Cream by Faceshop is a moisture-replenishing cream with hydrating Chia Seed Extract and mattifying Cotton Seed Extract.This hydrating cream keeps the skin nourished and adds a subtle glow and dewiness to your face, keeping it soft, supple all day long!
Ingredients – No ingredient list is available on the outer packaging. But it says:
- South-American GMO-free Chia Seed.
- Formulated without 7 additives: parabens, tar colorant, animal-source ingredients, mineral oil, talc, paraffin, polyacrylamide.
Packaging – I love the packaging. It comes in this dirty green glass tub which looks pretty high end. It gives the feeling of a luxury skincare product. It feels quite heavy and bulky though, and not very travel friendly. It has a silver lid. when you open the lid there is flat cover that comes off when you lift it.What I like most about the packaging is it comes with a small spatula to dispense the product on to the hand and avoid contaminating the product by dipping my fingers into it again and again.
Formula/Texture – The product is milky white in color and it feels watery to the touch while spreading onto to the skin. when applied it absorbs quickly into my skin and makes it plump and hydrated immediately. I apply this moisturizer after my Face Shop Chia Seed Hydrating toner (read the review here) which I use right after cleansing my face. This combination works really well for my skin. But you can use any toner that works for you.
Overall Verdict : I really love this product and will surely repurchase it. The packaging is not exactly travel friendly but I will live. I love how hydrated my skin feels after using this. It doesn’t make me look shiny throughout the day as it has promised. Shine – Free indeed. I have not used it under makeup but I am sure it will work quite well for that.
