Beauty Heroes has become one of my favorite subscription boxes by far. While I love those cheap $10 a month ones, there’s something about a well curated box with full size products and deluxe sizes. I’d rather have one full size of something I loved versus five samples I’ll never touch. The January box is all about Maya Chia. I have to admit I have been dying to try the eye serum for some time. Details per Beauty Heroes:
Maya Chia’s best-in-class, multi-correctional eye serum confidently solves skin’s most enduring challenge – the eye contour. Thin, delicate and quick-to-fatigue, the eye area reveals our energy, emotions and internal health, for better or worse. The Eye Achiever offers unprecedented support with a nutrient-dense blend of five macro and micro marine extracts, including astaxanthin, sea fennel, sea lavender, wakame and brown algae extract that flood skin with antioxidants, minerals and vital nutrients. The star performer, supercritical chia seed oil, is joined by raspberry, black cumin seed oil, rooibos tea extract, pomegranate and cranberry to revitalize, restore and strengthen the fragile skin around the eyes. Mission accomplished.
This month’s Sidekick, The Super Blend, The Super Blend, is a supremely concentrated ‘pressed serum’ that packs a super-sized dose of nature’s most active botanicals into a moisture-locking balm.
January’s Beauty Discovery is valued at $105.
The Eye Achiever is the full size discovery this month, and the sidekick is the delicious The Super Blend Pressed Serum.
The Eye Achiever is a roll-on style light textured oil.
Maya Chia’s The Eye Achiever gets an A+ with its concentrate of potent, nutrient-packed natural marine and plant actives that bring a feeling of deep, intense moisture and protection to skin around the eyes, resulting in a revitalized, radiant appearance.
• This moisturizing eye serum creates an enhanced look of brightness
• Easy to apply roll-on moisture, for a feeling of repair and protection
• Softened appearance of fine and deep lines
Directions Roll the cool rollerball gently from inner to outer corner under eye. Allow to soak in naturally or tap with the tip of the ring finger along the eye area. Roll along crows feet, laugh lines and along the nasolabial folds if desired.

The Super Blend Pressed Serum is just divine. This is like a buttery oil balm. It just gives the most delicious glow.
The Super Blend by Maya Chia is an innovative ‘pressed serum’ that is supremely concentrated. This formula packs a super-sized dose of nature’s most highly effective ingredients, including the potent antioxidant astaxanthin, vitamin c, omegas and polyphenols that together make up this effective balm for a youthful appearance. The formula is further fortified with co-enzyme Q10 to help soften the look of wrinkles, while babassu and kokum butters and white lupin seeds boost a look of skin radiance. This luxurious and powerful combination gives a revitalized look to aging skin by toning down the appearance of oxidative stress and inflammation to increase a look of elasticity and firmness.
• A look of smoothed out wrinkles and fine lines
• Skin looks supple and luminous
• A reduction in visible skin discoloration and dullness

Press palms firmly all over face for 40-60 seconds to warm blend and help it spread onto skin. Apply the Maya Chia pressed serum on the décolleté area AM and PM as desired.

I haven’t gotten to play full on with the Eye Achiever as I was in the middle of an eye oil when this arrived. I like to finish when I start with a product. I have dived into the pressed serum and it’s this lovely buttery oil balm that melts right into the skin. It’s quite divine. I love it at night and I will be sad when it’s gone. I love that Maya Chia used super ingredient Astaxanthan. It’s one of the most potent antioxidants out there. I highly recommend you try this subscription box if you like green beauty. It’s a great way to get introduced to new brands you never would have payed attention to before. It’s a steal as well.
