Ziaja - Natural based cosmetics developed under medical and pharmaceutical expertise

 Few months ago a Polish friend of mine told me about some amazing skin care products and introduced me to Ziaja. My blog post today is about how I discovered a range of quality skin care products, cruelty free, based on plants and developed by Polish pharmacists and chemists.


 I was quite intrigued and curious when I've heard that some of their products even received awards, before I made my first order I had to know more about their products to be able to choose the perfect creams and lotions that will suit my skin needs.

 As a client and as a beautician I am really happy to find a cosmetic company concerned about the health of their clients and in the same time a company that is environmentally aware (they have an empty packaging recycling process and they never test on animals).
For me Ziaja means modern beauty, safe skin care (the products are tested at the Medical Academy and in dermato-clinics from Poland), quality skin care products produced with a modern technology, amazing active ingredients and affordable prices. 

 I was pleasantly surprised and really happy that I was allowed to choose 3 products from Ziaja NL  to try out and test for my blog and for you, my readers!

 I really wanted to tell you a little bit about the company and show you why I decided to use and trust their products, just in case someone might think that I received 3 free products and I will try to talk you in to buying them. I am writing about these products on my blog just to share my experience with  the products and with Ziaja as a company so if you are interested in what I  have to say please read on. :) 

Here are the three skin care products I chose to test for you, but for me as well! :)


1. Cocoa Butter Shower Scrub. This scrub is absolutely delicious and perfect for summer. It smells like chocolate, summer and holiday.


 This scrub has a special blend of pure cocoa butter, coconut oil, crushed walnut shell, vitamin E, a lot of anti-oxidants and macro granules to peal off dead epidermal cells and reveal super soft skin. This product is from the Cocoa line, it has 200 ml and it costs 5.99 euro. I have a very deep love relationship with this scrub since the very first time I used it. It has a very creamy and delicate texture. It can be used 2-3 times a week with a circular motion massage that will enhance blood circulation and give a healthy glow to the skin. I think this is a fantastic product for exfoliation. Thank you Ziaja, you really spoiled me!

2. Marine Algae Spa Smoothing Eye Cream youth formula 30+. This product is an eye cream for daily skin care routine, developed for dry and normal skin, age 30+. I am somewhere between 30 and 40 (somewhere in the middle) :) and I cant live without using an eye cream. I have dry skin with a sensitive eye area and I chose this product based on my needs. This eye cream is rich in grape seed oil; the perfect ingredient to fight aging, relieve dark circles and improving the skin elasticity making the fine lines less visible and deep. I didn't know much about marine algae in skin care but I have done a small research, the conclusion of which is: they work great for skin regeneration because they have strong healing properties.


 I used this eye cream only 3 times and for now I can only say that it has no fragrance, it has a hypoallergenic formula under a ophthalmologist control and I noticed it has a very special texture that absorbs fast in the skin and doesn't make my eyes watery or irritated. On the pretty blue packaging is mentioned that the cream is suitable and recommended also for contact lens wearers. I was thinking to make a more detailed review about this eye cream after I use it for a while and see what exactly are the benefits.
This eye cream is from the Marine Algae spa line, it has 15 ml and it costs 4.49 euro. This is probably the best price I ever seen for an eye cream based on natural ingredients and suitable for people who wear lenses. I promise to come back with a review and update about this product.

3. Denova Pro Express Rejuvenating Mask with Hyaluronic Acid. Denova Pro is a special line from Ziaja with skin care products and treatments for a professional use in beauty salons but also in the comfort of your home. 


 The key ingredients of this products are molecular hyaluronic acid, proteins and brightening particles. The molecular hyaluronic acid creates a natural film that strengthens the skin's protective hydrolipid barrier, actively moisturizing the skin and preventing water loss. Hyaluronic acid is actually a natural structural component of skin, and in fact is present in connective tissue throughout the human body. As we age our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen the skin’s barrier. Hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage and reduces inflammation.

 This is a modern product that works really well as a treatment for dry/mature skin and skin damaged by sun exposure. 
Because of the low molecular weight, as used by Ziaja, the hyaluronic acid can penetrate beneath the skin’s surface and really helps promote radiant, younger-looking skin.

 Direction of use are really simple, all you have to do is to apply a thin layer of mask on cleansed skin and leave it until absorbed. The mask will form a supple and elastic film on the skin surface and it will visibly smooth the epidermis. I think this product is quite a radiance booster for mature, dry and dull skin.
This product comes in a squeezing tube of 50 ml and it costs 5.99 euro. If you decide to try this product I suggest that you only use a thin layer and combine it with vitamin C products to increase the efficiency.


 At the bottom of the box I found also several testers. I have not tried them yet but am really excited and happy to try more Ziaja cosmetics and to discover more amazing products!

 I am almost finished but before I end this post I want say thank you to the Dutch team from Ziaja NL, not only for the products but also for the way they treated me as a client long before they sponsored this post and for making available in The Netherlands real skincare, based on medical and pharmaceutical expertise!
