Siam Seas Review
I’m so excited to share Siam Seas with you today – it’s a green beauty brand that embodies everything I fell in love with about this niche. It is soo tough for a small, indie beauty brand to succeed in today’s landscape where every brand is now “clean beauty,” and I want brands like Siam Seas, that are the pioneers for what clean beauty was meant to be, to continue to thrive. This is where my true passion lives. Each Siam Seas product is infused with the ancestral healing methods of Southeast Asia, where both Chinese and Ayurveda traditions collide. This curious blend of ancient Eastern medicine and wisdom is a secret few have the privilege of experiencing, and while I’d love the world to take notice, I also love that this treasure still feels like a well-kept precious secret.
Reservoir Skin Fortifying Mist
First off, this is not a 80% water mist nor an 85% aloe juice mist. This is an organic Linden and Roman Chamomile flower Hydrosol mist with colloidal copper, colloidal silver, bee propolis, turmeric and N-Acetyl-glucosamine. Sacral-sounding ingredients like White Oak extract, Amurcork Tree extract, Golden Seal extract, Chinese Gallnut extract and Black Atractylodes dxtract provide skin healing and collagen stimulating benefits.
It has a beautiful sweet herbal scent thanks to the addition of Blue Tansy. Much more than a skin-beneficial face mist, Reservoir Mist also feels like an energy healer.

Siam Seas Elements Beauty Balm
Seas Elements was originally created for one of the founder’s closest life-long friends who has dealt with dry skin, eczema and other skin issues. Each ingredient was researched and carefully selected for its fatty acid profile and healing ability. It was also important that the balm be suitable for those with acne prone skin and oily skin.
I can tell this was formulated for oily skin as it’s on the dense and drier side. Instead of a rich salve, Elements Beauty Balm is a solid balm that still melts in contact with skin.
It smells beautiful of fragrant jasmine gardens with a delectable sweetness thanks to blue tansy. The beautiful deep green hue reminds you of lush forests carrying old world secrets.
I hate to use the word slugging for a brand of this caliber, but instead of slugging with petroleum jelly try using a product like Elements Beauty Balm which is filled with skin barrier protecting and antioxidant boosting ingredients.
A rich source of tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, the most skin-penetrable form of Vitamin C to restore brightness and balance skin tone, while Bakuchiol, Yananag, Gotu kola work synergistically with vitamin C to regenerate cells and defense against UV damage, free radicals and collagen breakdowns.
