Maya Chia Ultra Luxe Face Oil + Waterless Wonder Balm Review

beauty heroes discovery: maya chia ultra luxe face oil + supercritical waterless wonder balm
I signed up for Beauty Heroes this past January after several bloggers revealed that the luxurious Maya Chia was featured. The great thing about Beauty Heroes is that they open sign-ups for subscriptions until the 20th of the month or until supplies last. I always thought Beauty Heroes was too pricey but you're actually getting a lot more than what you pay for (we're talking about luxury makeup and skincare that would normally retail for ~$50 per item).

Beauty Heroes' monthly beauty discoveries cost $115 for 3 months, which is a little over $38 per month. Each box comes with a full-sized product and a side-kick, a smaller version of what a line would usually offer. Also, they offer 15% off their entire store if you're a subscriber!

The January 2017 Beauty Discovery included a full-sized Maya Chia The Super Couple Ultra Luxe Face Oil (30 ml) which retails for $85 and a mini-sized Supercritical Chia Waterless Balm (15 ml) which is worth $12. The overall value of this box is $97! Both products contain chia, a superfood that's rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids to help improve the skin's appearance, hydration, and fight wrinkles.

This multi-functional chia seed oil is infused with Astaxanthin from microalgae, which contains 65x the antioxidant levels of Vitamin C, and other potent botanical extracts to brighten, firm, repair, protect, and soothe inflammation.

I let my parents use this oil and they like it! This product didn't wow me because I didn't see it doing much for my skin.

Pros

  • Lightweight texture
  • Absorbs quickly into the skin
  • Light, pleasant scent
  • Slightly improved the radiance of my skin (includes fading of scars)

Cons

  • I don't notice as many improvements with this as I did with the Supercritical Chia Waterless Balm (I don't have much wrinkles to repair at the moment)
  • My blemishes still look red and inflamed 
  • Not moisturizing by itself

Limited Edition Supercritical Chia Waterless Balm
Ingredients: *Butyrosperumum Parkii Butter, Salvia Hispanica (Supercritical Chia) Oil, *Prunus Armenica (Apricot) Kernel Oil, *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Beeswax, Tocopherol (Non- GMO Vitamin E), 2% Essential Oils and Botanical Extracts
*Organic of Wildcrafted (when available)

This balm is AMAZING! It has transformed my skin from dry and patchy to soft and healthy! Plus, this limited-edition scent is infused with lavender, vetiver, patchouli, cardamom, and chamomile which has an overall beautiful and calming scent (kind of like luxury baby product scent, haha).

Pros

  • The texture is thick but melts into the skin upon contact so a little goes a long way
  • Absorbs quickly and doesn't have an oily residue so it can be used during the day and night
  • Smells amazing
  • Nourishes dry skin but is suitable for all skin types
  • Leaves the skin looking plump and feeling baby soft 
  • Improves radiance
  • Doesn't cause breakouts
  • Minimal, high quality ingredients

Cons

  • I wish this scent is permanent (Beauty Heroes is selling a limited amount of this limited-edition scent on their website though)

I'm glad to discover these products from Maya Chia through Beauty Heroes! I would definitely repurchase the transformative Waterless Wonder Balm but would pass on the Ultra Luxe Face Oil. Note: I tested these products individually and separately from each other (I used the balm for a week with my usual cleanser and toner and vice versa).

Are you subscribed to Beauty Heroes or have you tried any of these products? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
