The number one question asked of me, well just behind “what kind of curling iron do you use?” (psst – this one), is:
What eye cream do you recommend?
And, up until a few months ago, my answer was always the same. “I don’t use eye cream. Don’t see a point.” (Seriously, just search for “eye cream” on this blog. A self-professed eye cream non-believer, I was.)
However, over the past year, as the Maya Chia brand has become a complete staple in my morning and nightly routine, I started using The Eye Achiever when it launched this past fall. It’s essentially a roll-on applicator filled with some serious powerhouse ingredients. A nutrient-dense blend of five macro and micro marine extracts, including astaxanthin, sea fennel, sea lavender, wakame and brown algae extract that flood skin with antioxidants, minerals and vital nutrients. Plus, the star performer, supercritical chia seed oil, is paired up with raspberry, black cumin seed oil, rooibos tea extract, pomegranate and cranberry to revitalize, restore and strengthen the fragile skin around the eyes.
Bottom line – this stuff works. It reduces puffiness, fades dark circles, and really helps soften fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. And if you really want to step it up a notch, keep it in your refrigerator for the ultimate cooling, de-puffing amazingness.
By the way, I spoke in detail about my morning skincare routine (and the Maya Chia products I use) in this podcast. You can skip to the 11-minute mark for my morning routine, and the 17-minute mark for my Maya Chia favorites. (Although I’ve already added an extra step/serum…always changing things up, this girl!)
Why am I telling you about this eye serum this right now? Because this month’s Beauty Heroes box contains The Eye Achiever AND The Super Blend, a pressed serum moisture concentrate by Maya Chia. (So perfect for this time of year.)
Do you remember me telling you about Beauty Heroes? The monthly subscription box with full-sized, luxury, natural products? (It’s only $39 per month and always contains at least $100 of product.) And on top of receiving the best-of-best products for a steal every month, Beauty Heroes members always get 15% off in the online shop, which has over 30 green beauty brands. It is SO worth 39 dollars a month, I promise you. (And psst…I know what the next few months’ boxes are, and you will want to get in on this action.)
Y’all know I love my monthly Beauty Heroes delivery, but when it actually contains a product I firmly stand behind and use every day, you can bet I’m going to write about it. (Remember the Josh Rosebrook box?) This January beauty discovery is valued at $105, but as always, the monthly box is $39. This one, just like the Josh Rosebrook one, will sell out.
It is SUCH a deal, people. I pride myself on hanging back and not shouting about every. single. beauty. box I receive, but this one? This is one you want to get your hands on. Please feel free to ask any questions in the comments!
