Zorah Biocosmetics - Your Body, Your Earth!

Recently, a TV commercial caught my attention - yes, it happens quite often, but this one is... interesting. Come on, have a quick look at it, it's just one click away! ...So, what do you think? Personally, I knew that petroleum was bad for our health, but this is a genius wake-up call, isn't it? Of course, after seeing this ad, I had to do some research about the company behind the commercial...

Zorah, Quebec’s first line of high-end organic, eco-friendly and fair-trade cosmetic products - has a mission - to offer cosmetic care products of the highest quality, equalling or surpassing the best products already on the market, while using only ingredients which are organic, environmentally friendly and fair-trade.

I was very kindly given the opportunity to try two products to help with my dry and eczema-prone skin, Bioserum Structure and Xia Ultramoisturizing Facial Cream. I have been using both products every day since I got them and I liked them so much that I already used up the serum!

Bioserum Structure ($73.99 / 15 ml) is an incredible skin repair made of Argan, Chia and Kendi oils. It instantly moisturizes your skin to perfection and quickly stimulates the skin’s renewing function so that damaged and loose skin regains firmness and shine. 

I don't think I have firmness issues - yet - but as far as moisture goes, this product is awesome! Even though it's recommended to apply 2-3 drops at night over whole face and neck - the dropper makes it easy to use the right amount of products - I always felt like it was too much and it left my skin a bit greasy, so I only used about two drops and it was really all I needed! I like how this product leaves my face imediately soothed and smooth. If you use the right quantity, Bioserum Structure is quickly absorbed into the skin and you don't have to wait forever to apply your night cream.

I was also happily surprised by Xia ($56.99 / 50 ml), an ultramoisturizing facial cream made with Argan, Chia and Kendi Oil, which managed to moisturize and nourish my dry skin in only a few uses! Its texture is creamy yet lightweights and again, I have to be careful not to use too much because it can feel a bit heavy. 

When I received Xia, I used it morning and night, as advised, but when summer came, I felt that it was a bit too much to use in the day so I kept it for night. It is really moisturizing without feeling greasy (if I don't use too much product) and I love the unique packaging - I have never seen something like this before! You have to twist the tube to make the pump appear, then twist the opposite way to make it disappear in the tube, minimizing spillage and making it travel-friendly - absolutely genius!

Overall, I'm glad to have had the chance to try some Zorah products and I'm happy to report no eczema flare ups at all since I started using Bioserum Structure and Xia!

Zorah Biocosmétiques products are available in most Canada natural food stores and in a number of pharmacies such as Uniprix and Brunet, as well as on their website, www.zorah.ca
