Maya Chia The Eye Achiever REVIEW

MAYA CHIA THE EYE ACHIEVER REVIEW THE BEAUTY IDEALIST
I’m keeping this concise because my thoughts on Maya Chia’s The Eye Achiever are pretty straight forward. This is an oil-as-eye serum. Eye oils are my least favorite medium for the eyes because they travel, and can potentially get in the eyes leaving some irritation and temporarily clouding your vision. The rollerball applicator is good for massage and if it’s cool, can help de-puff and increase circulation, but it’s hard to control the amount of oil that gets out, which can leave oil streaking down your face.

The formula of Maya Chia’s The Eye Achiever is promising because there are stellar ingredients like astaxanthin (as the 2nd ingredient no less, so you’re getting a good dose), and oil soluble Vitamin C, in addition to lots of great plant oils like the brand’s namesake Chia Seed Oil (as the 1st ingredient), Raspberry Seed Oil, and Cranberry Seed Oil which are very nutritious and loaded with antioxidants. Unfortunately, where The Eye Achiever falls apart for me is the inclusion of spices like black cumin, fennel, and sea fennel. While I appreciate their collective nutritional aspect, I think it’s problematic to put these spices in a product that is used so closely around the eyes, especially in the oil format that is notoriously prone to traveling and getting into the eyes.

MAYA CHIA THE EYE ACHIEVER REVIEW - THE BEAUTY IDEALIST

Each time I have tried The Eye Achiever, I’m not able to go for more than 2-5 minutes without feeling some irritation just from the proximity to my eyes, that leads to my eyes watering. Due to the oil texture, I can’t actually rub this off my eye area as it just ends up getting everywhere, especially my eyes, which significantly aggravates the problem. There are times where I have had to wash my face again and start over just to remove The Eye Achiever, and deter further irritation.

I would be open to trying Maya Chia’s The Eye Achiever again in a spiceless version because I do like many of the ingredients in the formula. But as of now, if I wanted an oil for my eyes, I would most likely just separately apply my face oil around my eyes. If you want an oil that is ‘specialized’ for the eyes, I am kind of curious about Kora Organic’s Noni Eye Oil, which is a more forgiving $38 for the same size as Maya Chia’s The Eye Achiever which retails for $70.

  1. First of, very few people are as honest as you, when it comes to brands/products, respect & love for that.
    I also completely agree that this product is not working out all. Why an oil-near the eyes!, make no sense to me..
    My favorite “eye“ serum (not labeled as eye product) is A.F Resurrection cell recovery serum. Its my Favorite.
    Wondering, have you tried Maya Chias Retinol A oil? I do like it, and I find it working great.

    Do you have any top A.B & Yuli products?
    🤗

  2. Had the same experience with Maya Chia’s Eye Achiever, and a similar problem with their facial cleansing oil, which irritated my eyes when I used it around them to remove sunscreen or light makeup. Agree that Maya Chia has some wonderful ingredients, but most of the products didn’t quite come together for me. Adore their toner The Optimist, their oil The Super Couple, and their mask The Refresh Mint. The mask worked well on my skin, but it was powerful and a bit hard to remove. Thank you for your honest review.
