Beauty Heroes August 2019 Review feat. Maya Chia
There’s a card that you can detach from the lid of the box that suggests a “DIY Ritual” on how to incorporate your new products with others. You’ll also receive a booklet that introduces the featured brand (Maya Chia) and the products they chose to highlight.
Maya Chia The Refresh Mint Resurfacing Moisture Mask, 1.7 oz. – Retail Value $68.00
How fun is the color of this mask?! I love the electric teal blue and it is only compounded by its unique texture. A little citrusy, a little minty, and a little fennel-y, this mask has one of the most complex fragrances I’ve encountered. It looks like a fancy jar of slime which I am here for and is really fun to spread on to my face even though I don’t love the fennel smell. Once I’ve got a thin layer that has the slightest blue tint, I let it sit until it dries (5-10 mins) to a clear glassy look. There is tingling! There is a comforting tightness! After I feel satisfied that it’s dry, I use a warm washcloth to wipe my face clean to reveal skin that is as fresh as a newborn’s. The info pamphlet mentions the word “plump” – check! As well as “hydrated”- check! It has really made my skin feel new and I am stoked. In the first week, they suggest using this mask every two days, and then 2-3 times a week to maintain that newborn glow. This is probably the most unique and performing mask I’ve used in a while. Thanks, Beauty Heroes!!
Maya Chia The Optimist Hydrating Essence, 1.7 oz. – Listed Retail Value $29.00 (Buy full-size 3.4 oz. for $58.00)
My goodness gracious. If ever there were just one refreshing mist to spritz on my face – this might be THE ONE. Having a similar scent to it as The Refresh Mint, this ultra-fine hydrating mist has a licorice scent and includes neroli, organic white tea, chia seed extract, and organic sake rice extract among others. I use this after The Refresh Mint mask, after cleansing, or anytime during the day when my face needs a little pick-me-up. It immediately perks my mood and gives me a glorious feeling. I simply love it!
Verdict: Beauty Heroes has once again introduced me to obsession-worthy products from a brand I wouldn’t have heard of otherwise. I love love loved both experiences with the two offerings from Maya Chia and I can see myself easily adding these to my regimen since both are so enjoyable.
