ZIAJA LAUNCH NEW CUPUACU COLLECTION

By Rachsbeautique - 10:00



Meet the first cupuacu beauty range to hit Irish shores – cupuacu (pronounced koo-poo-ah-soo!) is a hot new Brazilian skincare ingredient that makes moisturisers much more powerful and has many therapeutic benefits for your skin – it’s referred to as ‘the pharmacy in a fruit’ by Brazilians because of its numerous health benefits and is also listed as the Brazilian national fruit.

Cupuaçu is a fruit with a creamy white pulp that grows in the Amazon Rainforest.  Similar to cocoa butter, but with double the potency - cupuaçu has antioxidant and emollient properties that soften, hydrate, and improve skin elasticity. As a skin hydrator, it can attract and hold more than twice the amount of moisture in the skin.  Ziaja’s new line of cupuacu based products are enriched with shea butter and macadamia oil to transform from drab to fab skin instantly, they are intensely moisturising but absorbed easily into the skin leaving a lustrous silky after feel.

The range includes 4 different products ranging from a sugar scrub to a bronzing lotion. I want to introduce each of the products and then give a deep review on the shower gel and bronzing lotion I recieved. 

Ziaja’s New Cupuacu Collection:

Cupuacu shower balm for face, body & hair €6.99 (300ml)
Replenish skin while you rinse with ziaja’s Cupuacu shower balm enriched with cupuacu, shea butter and macadamia oil to restore smoothness, softness and hydration with every shower or bath.  Used just like a daily body moisturiser in the shower or bath, this conditioning silky, smooth balm conditions, nourishes and softens skin.

I received the Crystalline Shower Soap and the Bronzing Body Lotion. They first thing about these products is the iconic design. It screams summer at you. Once you open the cap of each of them you are greeted with an iconic smell. It is so hard to describe. To me it smells like the beach on an exotic island all mixed together. 




Cupuacu crystalline shower & bath soap €3.99 (500ml)
This soap is packed with emollient cupucua, shea butter and macadamia oil – a replenishing gel formula that nourishes and softens while the sweet cupuacu fragrance provides a pleasant smell. My skin has always been particulary dry, and to be honest I am dreadful at moisturising. This shower gel helps as it nourishes the skin. I find the condition of my skin has really improved. The dryness has just about been eradicated and it now feels soft and supple. The smell from this soap is amazing. It reminds you of holidays and it is so refreshing to use in the shower. Excellent value at €3.99 for 500 ml. 

Cupuacu bronzing body lotion €7.99 (300ml)
An ultra-hydrating tanning lotion formulated with a moisture-rich mix of cupuacu and shea butter that work alongside brazil nut and macadamia oils to provide a hydrated smooth canvas primed for a subtle, delicate golden tan that gives a healthy radiant look to the skin. This is just amazing. I love having a glowing skin, and while in college we weren't allowed wear tan. I am a fan of gradual tans as it allows you to build up the colour until you get the desired effect. This applies here with this one. It smells amazing, no soggy biscuit smell. It is a buildable colour. I apply mine and then let it dry and wear a long sleeved top going to bed. I wake with a glow to my skin. I find it takes 2-3 applications to get the bronzed look, but after 1 application you definitely have a very natural glow to the skin. In the picture below I have 2 layers on my skin. It lasts a week and wears evenly. 


I am super impressed with the two products I received. I have the sugar scrub on my list for the next product I want from the range. Ziaja never fails to impress me.
