When we received the Chia & Peach Kernal superpower blend from Gaia we have been a little anxious as we haven’t used a skincare oil in a while! We straightaway looked at its properties and the ingredients which suitable for both of us, despite hang very different skin types.
We have already written in more detail about Gaia, their amazing products and company ethos, and this oil was no less perfect.
When we tried it the first time, we were mainly interested in the consistency of the oil. Whilst it is quite rich and a small amount goes a long way, it is also really well absorbed. Often, oils are associated with leaving a thick layer and clogging up pored, however this isn’t the case with this product! We have been applying it before sleep, as it might be a bit too heavy if you are doing your make up in the morning in a rush, and you wake up with glowing and well-moisturized skin. The serum is great for sensitive skin or with eczema as it reduces redness and large pores, but also provides great hydration and is anti-inflammatory.
The oil also has a very delicate natural fragrance, which isn’t sweet or overwhelming. Generally, all Gaia’s creams have a very natural, forest like fragrance.
Our verdict: Having been using the oil serum for about a month now, we can say with confidence that we are converted! 🙂
