Taking care of my skin is something I’ve been passionate about since I went to charm school when I was 12-years-old. Actually, it was a class given by a neighbor who worked as a model at our local Sears store. She told us to always wash our face and I’ve been doing it every morning and night ever since. I was also a sales director for a famous skin care company so I know a little about it. Even still, 62 years on the planet and tugging on contacts since age 14 has done a number on my face. I’ve tried all sorts of brands over the years but was curious to find out how AHAVA Dead Sea Minerals skin care may be different.
When I consider a new skin care program, the best way to test if it’s worth buying is to try it on and use it for a while. The idea of Dead Sea minerals sounded intriguing, but I needed to have proof it wasn’t any better than anything else out there. My skin is on the dry side so I need plenty of hydration that will last throughout the day. AHAVA sent me bottles of their Beauty Before Age Uplift Night Cream, Uplift Day Cream, and Crystal Osmoter™ Facial Serum to sample and I’ve been using it for several weeks.
Minerals from the Dead Sea
The Dead Sea in Israel and is said to be the Earth’s largest natural spa with the highest concentration of natural minerals and elements. AHAVA is known for its rejuvenating mineral bath salts. The company is located on the shore of the Dead Sea, is eco-friendly and responsibly harvests its ingredients. Their laboratory carefully studies the ingredients they use. Now, in sustainably-produced packaging, the products have been reformulated with no parabens, SLS or SLES, with no petroleum, harsh synthetic ingredients or GMOs. AHAVA products are also not tested on animals.
Crystal Osmoter™ Facial Serum
Crystal Osmoter™ Facial Serum is a triple charged super-serum blended with 5 plant oils, squalene, and Dead Sea minerals that include magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride, and bromides. They boost healing, keep moisture in, relieve stress, and nourish the skin. The serum reduces UV and free radical damage and is made for mature skin. It comes in an elegant glass bottle with an eye dropper. All you have to do is apply 4 drops every morning and night. After using it, I noticed my skin felt super soft without feeling greasy. It also has a light and pleasant fragrance. You can use it on your face and décolleté.
Beauty Before Age Uplift Day and Night Cream
The Beauty Before Age line is formulated to lift sagging skin and is designed for women aged 50+. You should see results in 2 weeks. Some of the concerns it addresses, in addition to sagging skin, are age spots, uneven skin tone, deep wrinkles and rough dull skin.
The Uplift Night Cream restores your skin as you sleep by making it more elastic.
Both products include the Osmoter™
I find it hard to determine whether my skin has actually lifted, if the sagging has diminished, or if it’s even possible. What I do know is that my skin has been consistently soft and supple all day long. In fact, much more than other products I’ve tried so far. Most dry out after a few hours.
The quality of AHAVA is considered to be on the higher end. The Night Cream is $82, the Day Cream $79 and the Crystal Osmoter™ Facial Serum $74. Its packaging is sophisticated, classy and functional. I have a stack of skin care products that brands have sent me to try and so far AHAVA has been my favorite. I hope you will give it a try.
