What exactly is Chiaseed?
Considered as one of power foods, Chiaseed is a species of flowering plant in the mint family. Native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemela, its nutritious seed provides calcium and protein to body tissues. Also rich in boron, the seed helps the body assimilate and use up calcium. The seed can soak up ten times its weight in water.  When applied or consumed, the seed can help you stay hydrated longer!

Strongly recommended for customers in their 20’s
Both men and women who seek for non-sticky skincare with full hydration
For those existing customers who seek for faster absorption of moisture essence"

the ingredients
the container
a protective cap, what a cute flap!
a gel like product
that isn't runny but not too creamy
that gets absorbed almost instantly with no greasy residue on my skin
and the next day, i don't end up looking like a grease ball.
that has consistent results throughout the day, meaning my skin is moisturized yet I am do not end up looking like a grease ball throughout the day.
the collaterals 
and leader

  • now available in the Philippines at our local the face shop boutiques found in major malls in the country
  • suited for all types of skin, even for oily combination skin like mine
  • absorbs by the skin, even for someone's skin as NOT dry as mine, very quickly.
  • really moisturizing without making me go oily
  • does not conflict with my tsuya serum AND the face shop's sseal secret seal of nature escargot cream
  • AND AND AS IN AND!!! i'm actually less greasy when I started using this WITH the face shop's sseal secret seal of nature escargot cream.  (whereas i would end up getting greasy by morning - when i wake up when i applied JUST the escargot cream)
  • a little product goes a long way to cover my entire face
  • does not break me out or give me dry patches like on the sides of my jaw or forehead, you know what i mean, a bad dry scaly itchy reaction when your skin doesn't like it's new thing
  • since it's absorbed quickly, it does not affect my foundation, therefore my foundation or bb cream does not slide off my face throughout the day

  • because of my current skin care the tsuya skin and escargot cream, i can't tell if my skin is MORE supple now then when i started.  but at least it doesn't dry my skin
  • the packaging, it's in a tub, whereas it could've been in a pump bottle, the product is certainly smooth enough to go through a pump.  we are provided with a spatula though.
RECOMMENDATION: you know i walked around in heat today with this under all my makeup, and well, my makeup held and didn't slide off considering the time released moisture of the product.  i do recommend this to women with dry skin and even women with oily combination skin. this product is cooling on the skin and really moisturizing without overwhelming my skin.
