Ziaja Skincare Haul 2016
Helloo loves! So, I think I’m winning at life currently because I’ve managed to put up two back to back posts 😀 Cool yes? Yess, I think so too. My last post was all about the Ofra Liquid Lipsticks if you wanted to check that. But let’s get on with the reason we’re meeting again. Today I’m back with another #takemymoneytuesday haul. We’re talking about a new to me brand -Ziaja- and discussing thoughts on it. So, let’s get started with this Ziaja skincare haul.
Ziaja Skincare Haul
About the Brand
ZIAJA Ltd. is a Polish producer of pharmaceuticals and high-quality cosmetics based on natural ingredients for face, body and hair care. It is a family-owned company, established in 1989 in Gdansk by pharmacists Aleksandra and Zenon Ziaja. Ziaja cosmetics combine highly regarded traditional components, such as herbal extracts and vitamins with modern technology. The formulas are based on pharmaceutical expertise.
Ziaja is a skincare brand originating from Poland. I personally got introduced to this brand through Ipsy. The three products in this haul were all bought as part of an offer from Ipsy a couple months ago. I am super late in getting this haul up. Butttt, worry not. Ziaja is currently selling this same bundle for only $19.00 on their website with free shipping! I am not sponsored or anything. I just feel bad that I am so super late in telling you guys about this Ziaja skincare haul, so I’m keeping you upto speed on the fact that they still have this offer going on. Even without the discount, this brand is super affordable.
- Ziaja Sensitive Skin Enzyme Peeling
This product is basically your ‘acid toner’ or a ‘peel’ as the name suggests. This is a chemical exfoliant that is meant to peel dead cells off the skin and facilitate better absorption of all the skincare products you layer on top of it. I bought the sensitive skin version because 1) it was the one on sale and 2) I hadn’t heard any reviews on this, so I didn’t want to buy the regular version in case it was too strong for my skin and ended up breaking me out. Even though I bought these items a while ago, I haven’t had the chance of trying these out just yet. So, I’ll update you guys in a different post on the efficacy of these products. When I looked at the ingredients, my mind was immediately at ease upon seeing a very minimal ingredients list. However, I know that parabens are frowned upon these days. Their products contain parabens so I’m not sure how good these products will perform. Will have to test it out.
Miscellaneous: Retails for $10.99 here.
- Ziaja Sensitive Skin Firming Night Cream
According to the brand, this night time moisturizer is supposed to firm and soothe the skin. It claims to eliminate redness and burning sensation of the epidermis while reducing roughness, dryness and flaking. This is also supposed to restore the skin protective barrier and replenish lipids. So basically, this cream claims to do a lot of serious good here. Again, these will have to be tested out. Actually, I have used this night cream a couple times now and I can definitely say it was a positive first impression. More to comee..
Miscellaneous: Retails for $12.99 here.
- Ziaja Sensitive Skin Micellar Water
Here is the last piece of business in this Ziaja skincare haul. Ziaja has an incredible range of micellar waters on their website some of which look soo intriguing. The one I have is again in their sensitive skin range. If you are not familiar with micellar waters, I did a brief intro on them and a post on my favorite micellar water which you can read about here. I have used this micellar water quite a bit since I got it. And it is really really nice. It is not my absolute favorite like the Simple Micellar Water, but I still like this. This has a more ‘water based’ feel to it whereas the Simple micellar water feels just a tiiiiny percent more viscous and moisturizing. I can use the Simple one for either cleansing skin or even makeup removal. This Ziaja micellar water is reserved solely for cleansing the skin in my routine. Not for makeup removal.
Miscellaneous: This retails for $12.99 for 7 oz. I think that this is a little expensive. Especially when compared to Simple. The Simple one retails for $6.99 for 6.7 oz. This one is almost twice the price for the same amount. By that logic, I already know that I won’t be giving this micellar water the ‘holy grail’ status.
Alrightyy guyss! That was a quick haul of some of the items I picked up from the Polish skincare brand Ziaja. I will let you guys know how the products end up working out for me. So far, I am almost 99% happy with the ingredients lists and affordability of the items. None of the items have any mineral oils or fragrance in them which is a huuuuge bonus. I’m super curious to know if you guys have heard of the brand or if you have tried anything from them. Please please do let me know. Love you all :*
