Face Shop Chia Seed

At the time of the media event for the Face Shop Chia Seed and Belif, I had an eczema outbreak on my face. So receiving these products came at an opportune time as it’s always difficult for me to find skin products that don’t sting as my skin is sensitive to harsh chemicals in skin products.

The Chia Seed line claims to be soothing to the skin as it is high in omega-3, fibers, proteins, antioxidants and minerals. The first word that came into my mind after I first the Chia Seed Cleansing Wipes first made first contact with my skin was “soothing” as the ingredients seem to produce a cooling effect. It’s also not an expensive line with the intense cream at $40, moisturizing serum at $32, moisturizing lotion at $25, wipes at $14 as I’ve tried other expensive skin products that were more than $60 up

Chia Seed Cleansing Wipes ($14):. I had an issue opening this as the didn’t realize that it was constructed so that the front flap opened producing a Kleenex like box from which you could retrieve one cleansing wipe each day. Clever. Immediately, you get a faint whiff of green tea and upon contact the wipe doesn’t sting my irritated areas, but cleans all the residue from my foundation rather nicely.

Chia Seed Fresh Cleansing Foam ($14). This product I suspect will last forever as you only need a little bit of it. When you put it on your face it feels like soap, but starts to foam after 30 seconds of rubbing. It seems to stay on your face and isn’t washed off like soap and seems to be absorbed into the skin.

Chia Seed Soothing Mist Toner ($25). This toner really soothes the skin as it seems to imparts a cool mist and makes the skin feel refreshed and clean.

Chia Seed Moisturizing Lotion ($25):  This feels non greasy and makes skin feels moist the morning after.


Chia Seed Intense Hydrating Cream ($40). This cream is really moisturizing as your skin immediately feels plump and moist and is definitely worth the price as it is more moisturizing then the Chia Seed Moisturizing Lotion. It’s definitely worth the price.



The Face Shop Belif – true cream – moisturizing bomb ($47). Mich like the Chia Seed line, this cream is also made from natural ingredients such as comfrey leaf.  At the time I tried this, Vancouver has having a cold spell so I actually put a little on my dry chapped lips along with my face.  The next morning, my lips weren’t quite as dry and the skin above my lips was no longer flaking.  A great cream to use during those cold winter days to retain moisture in your skin.
