For anyone who has read my prior product reviews, you know that anti-aging and hair softening products are my absolute favorite to try. Sadly, most great products also come with an insane price tag making them easy to love but difficult to commit to. Thankfully, after trying the products sent to me from Zaija, it seems exceptional finally can be coupled with affordable. The company sent me five products to try; Goat’s Milk Eye Cream, Goat’s Milk Day Cream, Goat’s Milk Night Cream, Goat’s Milk Body Balm, and Natural Olive Hair Mask Regenerating, and each was surprisingly incredible.
Admittedly, when I saw the words, “Goat’s Milk” I was a little worried. I immediately ran to my computer and Googled the ingredient to see what the possible benefits could be. As it turns out, goat’s milk contains Lactic Acid that stabilizes the skin’s PH levels, naturally soothes dry, irritated skin, and contains protein and fatty acids that smooth lines and wrinkles while keeping the skin hydrated. Okay, I’ll admit it, I was intrigued. As I logged on to researched the company Ziaja, I found that all of their products are derived from natural ingredients like goat’s milk, olive oil, aloe, cucumber, marine algae, and argan oil, and are free of the irritants and perfumes found in most hair and skincare lines. What’s even more important is that all of these amazing products can be purchased for under $10.00. Now, on to the review!
Goat's Milk Eye Cream
Honestly, this is one of the best eye creams I have ever used. The texture was very concentrated and thick yet it melted into my skin within seconds. I often have issues with dry patches and even a weird breakout of little bumps near my eyes in the summer time and this eye cream kept both at bay. It also seemed to help with the occasional bags that accompany my countless sleepless nights.
Goat's Milk Day Cream
At first I wasn’t sure about these. My skin did seem a bit shiny and I required more powder during the day. However, after about a week I started to realize that I was using way too much. The day and night creams are very thick and concentrated and you literally need only about a dime’s size for your face. Once I adjusted the amount, the results were amazing! Not only were my fine lines diminished but my skin actually seemed to glow. At my last hair appointment, my stylist asked what skincare products I was using because my skin was gorgeous and whatever it was, she wanted it. After taking a few personal moments to gloat, I referred her to the Ziaja website.
Goat's Milk Body Balm
Much like the day and night creams, a little of this stuff goes a long way. To be honest, the scent was a little stronger than I would have preferred but luckily it fades after a few minutes. The look of this cream on my skin however was sensational. Just like the face creams, the body balm gave a dewy kind of glow to my skin (a total benefit for summer fashion). I also found that by the end of the day, my skin felt just as hydrated as it had when I first applied.
Natural Olive Hair Mask
Hands down this was my absolute favorite of the products. Historically, I have been a Moroccan Oil girl. Ever since I made a rapid transition from reddish brown to platinum blonde (which left my hair dry, damaged, and in need of a 4” cut), I have been forced to use the Moroccan Oil products in order to get my hair to do anything. While I liked the products and what they did for my hair, the deep conditioner alone would run me about $40.00 which quickly adds up over the months. I have to say with total confidence that this Natural Olive Hair Mask is equally as good if not even a little better than the Moroccan Oil hair mask. The added bonus is that this one will only run you $8.79.
For all of you beauties out there hoping to defy age and get your glow on, I urge you to check out these products ASAP. Not only will you see a drastic improvement in your skin and hair, you’ll also notice a few extra dollars in your bank account
