The Ultimate Summer Glow with Maya Chia

Maya Chia’s radiant new releases create the ultimate summer glow from head-to-toe in ultra flattering rose-gold tones. Picture your complexion at sunset, the warm pink and golden rays of the late afternoon sun – well Maya Chia has essentially captured that light and bottled it up in their new Highlight of the Day Illuminating Body Serum* and Highlight of the Day Illuminating Face Serum Makeup*.  Going far beyond their illuminating qualities, these serums feature a fully loaded cocktail of powerful and active ingredients for healthy skin.

The Highlight of the Day Illuminating Face Serum in After Hours* 

After Hours is the newest shade to join the Illuminating Face Serum collection, alongside Happy Hour and Golden Hour (see my review here). The latest shade, After Hours, is a densely pigmented bronzed-rose tone that adds a natural luminous warmth to the skin. It is the perfect summer shade that enhances the complexion, creating a healthy sun-kissed radiance. The Illuminating Serums can be used in multiple ways; as a highlighter for a strobing effect, applied directly onto your skin (both under and over your makeup) or mixed into your favorite foundation or moisturizer. I seriously can’t get enough – I’ve been using it on the high points of the face, and both eyes and lips, skipping blush entirely.

Gorgeous Ingredients: *Supercritical Chia (Salvia hispanica) Seed Oil, Brassica Oleracea (Broccoli) Seed Oil, Capriylic/ Capric Triglyceride, *Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Mica, Iron Oxide, Titanium Oxide, *2% Essential Oil Blend.

The Highlight of the Day Illuminating Body Serum ‘Limited Edition’*

Maya Chia introduces its first ever Illuminating Body Serum and its hands-down one of the most beautifully crafted shimmering body oil that I’ve come across. The beauty is in its subtlety – micro fine shimmer is suspended in an artfully selected base of hydrating oils (that add a glow of their own), the effect is a healthy, luminous sheen. Its rose-gold hue flatters all skin tones, and helps to minimize the appearance of flaws. Sweet orange essential oil, along with neroli lends the serum a light sweet, citrus scent that is just SO gorgeous (can we get a fragrance please!) Sadly this product is ‘Limited Edition’ – but hopefully high demands will change that status.

The Illuminating Serum contains Maya Chia’s very own supercritical chia oil, said to be the most “nutrient dense botanical source of omega fatty acids, antioxidants, and essential minerals.” Uniquely, the body oil contains gotu kola for its anti-inflammatory and collagen stimulating properties, along with arnica oil, an herbal remedy for bruising. Broccoli seed oil, or “natures natural silicone,” helps to excel its performance. 

Gorgeous Ingredients: Supercritical Chia (Salvia hispanica) Seed Oil, Coconut Alkanes (and) Coco-Caprylate/Caprate, *Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil, *Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica Extract), *Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Brassica Oleracea (Broccoli) Seed Oil, *Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Capriylic/ Capric Triglyceride, Mica, Iron Oxide, Titanium Oxide, *Citrus Sinensis (Sweet Orange) Essential Oil, Citrus Aurantium (Neroli) Essential Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Non-GMO.
