Last weekend, I tried out Ahava products... and like Nathalie Portman and many others... I LOVED IT !

 I already tried Ahava products in the past after I read celebrities talking about it in interviews...
The special point of this wonderful brand is that they use dead-sea minerals in their skin care.
For generations, the Dead sea has been visited by peoples seeking new life for their skin. Well, if like me you don't have time and/or money to buy a plane ticket to go there and pamper your skin, well, you'd better just buy Ahava!!!!

 I received a cute little box with two samples: a purifying mud mask and an essential day moisturizer.

Ahava face care range claims to address every progressive need, from cleansing and purifying through natural moisture balancing to nourishing age management. Truth be told,  Ahava keeps its promise and your skin is reborn ! 

I first tried the mud mask. This is ideal to purify and deeply cleanse your skin. The crazy thing is that once you apply the mask on your face you can actually feel that it's doing its job and it's clean your little cells one by one ! Cleansing your skin with dead sea ingredients is the ideal start for purifying the skin, activating ts metabolism and preparing it for deeper treatment.

Time has come to hydrate: I then applied the moisturizer.
 The texture is light and smell so fresh and "comfy". I don't know if you can use this word to describe a texture but that's how i felt: like home !

The magic happens here again that to dead sea minerals... they play a crucial role in helping cells to retain moisture at optimal levels.
 To finish up the process, I applied the extreme firming eye cream serum. It reduces wrinkles and significantly firms the delicate area around the eyes. I ended up buying the full size version ! Just because I believe a woman smiles with her eyes :)SO you have to take care of those pretty eyes of yours ladies!
The wonderful thing is that this serum is a mix of dead sea minerals coming from the lowest point on earth and at the same time, nourishing Himalayan plants growing on the world's highest mountains! How cool and exclusive is that! 

 Finally for a week I used this wonderful shower cream wash...

In the mood for ... Flowers

Summer is around the corner! What kind of swimwear will you be rocking ??
