Today I’ll be reviewing a skin care product from my favourite brand, The Face Shop. As we all know, it is a famous Korean brand. I’ll be reviewing their Chia Seed No Shine Intense Hydrating Cream today. I wanted to give this cream a try for a long time and finally got my hands on it. So, here is the review.

My Experience with The Face Shop Chia Seed No Shine Intense Hydrating Cream:
The cream comes in glass tub packaging which is pastel green in color. It has the name of the cream printed over it. The tub comes in a cardboard packaging, which contains all the information about the cream. It comes along with a transparent spatula as well to scoop out the cream.
The cream is pure white in color and you need a little amount on the spatula to completely hydrate your face. I wanted to try this cream for a very long time as I had read various positive reviews about this one. Now when I am using it, I know the reason why.
Since I have a combination to oily skin type I am always looking for products with “shine free” claim. This cream claims to be shine free but hydrating and is just perfect for me. My skin loves this cream quite a lot.
I usually apply this cream after my cleansing and toning routine. I have observed that over a period of time this cream has made my skin softer. When I use this one at night, I can see a subtle glow and softness on the face in the morning. It effectively takes care of my skin without making it super oily and sweaty.
My skin drinks it up quickly after the application. The cream hydrates my skin and, at the same time, controls the oil glands from releasing an excess of sebum. Overall, I am in love with this moisturiser and I carry it everywhere I go. It’s a staple in my skincare regimen now.
Pros of The Face Shop Chia Seed No Shine Intense Hydrating Cream:
• Suitable for normal to oily skin.
• A little amount goes a long way.
• Makes the skin soft.
• Imparts a subtle glow.
• Comes with a spatula.
Cons of The Face Shop Chia Seed No Shine Intense Hydrating Cream
• Unavailability can be a con.
• Heavy packaging.
IMBB Rating: 4.5/ 5
