In the month of January, TheFaceShop launched a new skincare line called the CHIASEED. For that, they sent me a press kit to feature it on my blog. The press kit is cute! Scroll down further to view it yourself! ^_^
The parcel I received is in TheFaceShop (TFS) paper bag. See my name there? lolx~ And the press kit comes in a huge box.
ChiaSeed Press Kit
The box says, "Do you want moisture? Open this box."
And I was thinking, "d'hell, of cos I do!!!" *opens box*
And then I saw this... 500ml? 50ml? x10? Basically its saying that Chia Seed can absorb 10 times its weight in water. Therefore it comes up to 500ml of moisture! You get 500ml of moisture in this 50ml of product! ^o^
Oh yeah, not forgetting.. there's a spatula too! (the spatula kinda camouflaged in this pic. hahax~)
CHIASEED - Seed moisture on your face all day long.
Your inner skin fully hydrated with the powerful moisture-capturing Organic Chia Seed.
Before I continue showing more of the product, I'm going to introduce you to Chia Seed... in its real form. Looks like little stones eh?
After researching, here's what I found:
Chia can absorb between 9 and 12 times its unit weight in water
, and when soaked in water forms a thick gel-like substance
. This can be added to different foods, or can be used as a substitute to create healthier versions of your favourite recipe. Chia seeds are jam-packed with goodness
(read more to find out...
) Chia seeds are also one of Athlete's nutrition aside from Spinach, Gogi, Acai berries etc..
In the pic below, what you see surrounding the Chia seeds are the gel-like substance.

ChiaSeed Moisture-Holding Seed Cream
I was sent a 50ml tub of Chia Seed moisturizing cream. Expiry date is shown at the bottom of the tub.
The cover with a heart shape flap ♥
When I lift the cover up, alot of product sticked to it.
The cream appears to be a gel-like cream (kinda like the gel substance that comes out from the actual Chia Seed?) and it looks almost yummy to me *thinks chia seed*.
Base on just looking at the content, it looks sticky and somewhat.... gloopy? Not sure if it's the right word to describe. lolx~
Every morning and evening, dispense an adequate amount during the final stage of skincare according to the following sequence and gently apply along the skin texture in an outward direction and let absorb.
I will be changing my moisturizer to this Chia Seed Moisture-Holding Seed Cream soon and I will review it with swatches and all in a separate post. ^_^
