Gaia Creams, in its jars, is sending to the world natural good that takes care of the skin "without any chemical craps". We test a unique serum Chia & Peach Kernal Superpowder Blend on ourselves, instead of animals.
Lets start from the beginning – the purpose of the Gaia Creams is not to sell its cosmetics but to help us in taking care of our skin. Anna McGurran asks about our complexion, its condition and appearance. On this basis she is trying to diagnose its needs and match the right cosmetics that can be useful for the skin. Of course - you can try by yourself to order on the website all that you like or what has a nice composition. But it is much better to ask for advice. After all, no one knows these natural cosmetics better than the owner of the brand.
While starting with its application it is worth trying to change the habits that can have negative effects on the skin. You should drink more water, take care of healthy sleep. The condition of our skin, as Anna McGurran emphasizes, reflects the state of our body. Creams are meant to help to stimulate good mechanisms and to support the fight for health and good looks. For me, it is also important that the Gaia Creams does not promise any immediate effects. It does not promise that the appearance of the skin will be better right after the first application. Reasonably thinking - any natural substance, after all, needs time to improve your skin condition.
Serum Chia & Peach Kernal Superpowder Blend is a unique mixture, designed for oversensitive, delicate and problematic skin. It is closed is a blue, glass bottle, with an aluminium cap. As a result, the serum is not contaminated by any harmful substances from plastic packaging which are commonly used by big companies in their productions of the creams. The serum has a delicate fragrance, and its aroma is difficult to describe, yet very natural. However, do not expect any peach scent – after all, not peaches, but the oil from their stones is a component of serum.
What is there in the serum? Not much. First of all, it is a Spanish sage (Salvia hispanica), that is the mysterious Chia. Chia is a unique variety of sage, native to Mexico. Chia seed oil is rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty oils, minerals, and vitamins. It delays aging, promotes skin regeneration, moisturizes and nourishes it. Chia Oil tightens pores and softens the skin. It is absorbed perfectly and it does not clog the pore.
Apricot stone oil is another component. This light oil, extremely rich in Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty oils is quickly absorbed, it softens the skin and restores radiance. It is accompanied by another miracle of nature – rosemary. Essential oil from the leaves of this herb has stimulant and antiseptic features. Thanks to bacteriostatic effect it is extremely good for oily skin and skin with acne. It tightens blood vessels and promotes blood circulation. Due to these properties, it is often used in anti-cellulite products.
For the first time I have met Boswelia resin oil in the serum. Perhaps it is responsible for elusive and unknown to me smell? It was known by women almost 3,000 years ago. Women from Scythian tribes applied it on a skin, the Chinese used it for the treatment of leprosy and infected wounds. It is a potent stimulator of the immune system, it clears and regenerates the skin, promotes healing of wounds and scars. Finally – the oil reduces the oiliness of the skin.
The extract of amaranth – another "acid bomb" – is extremely rich in Omega fatty acids. It contains a lot of vitamin E. Like Boswelia oil it promotes wound healing, it has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties, and what is more it increases the immunity of the skin. The serum is additionally enriched with natural vitamin E, which inhibits the aging of the skin. At the same time vitamin E in the serum acts as a natural antioxidant, which prevents oxidation of the valuable oil components.
The serum contains no water – which is the primary ingredient in most popular cosmetics. It is a pure, not diluted, plant good that supports the natural processes occurring in the skin. All ingredients are organic and ethical. The serum is also extremely delicate. It should not be kept in temperature above 25 degrees or in direct sunlight. Therefore, for the safety and comfort of my skin, I decided to store it in the refrigerator.
The serum is completely liquid. Applied on dry skin it shines, though not very aggressively. It works best applied on a wet skin of the face, right after washing it. Just rub a few drops of this wonderful product in it. The serum, which is a mixture of oils, is extremely lightweight and it is quickly absorbed by the skin. When applied on wet skin it does not shine. It does no weight down and plug the pores.
According to the guidelines of Anna McGurran I did not expect any immediate results. I use serum at night, I massage it gently into wet skin after bathing. Twice a week I exfoliate facial skin to better support its regeneration. The serum gradually and consistently improves skin condition. It accelerates the healing of acne spots. After some time, the number of them also decreases. I can slowly notice pores shrinking. And in good conscience I can recommend it to anyone with problematic complexion, acne and problems with healing. Gaia Creams serum supports the natural processes of the skin when used regularly.
However, the most important is the fact that I can feel my skin breathing under the serum. The serum neither clogs the pores, nor it causes new pimples. It also gradually evens the skin tone. Chia & Peach Kernal Superpowder Blend is very efficient. 30 ml bottle costs 110.50 zl. It must be used within 4 months from the date of its production. Therefore, the serum is produced right after its ordering.
