Do you know Ahava? Do you believe in love at first sight?

It might happen now. Ahava (Hebrew: אהבה‎) means love, in this case love for your skin. The Israeli cosmetics company, that was launched in 1988, manufactures skin care products made of mud and mineral-based compounds from the Dead Sea which are outstanding, especially for sensitive skin. And don’t forget to enter the contest at the end of this post!

The Dead Sea is a natural geological wonder formed throughout the millennia and located at the bottom of the world, some 410 meters below sea level. I have been there. It’s a strikingly beautiful and peaceful place that only Mother Nature could create. It’s mysterious: A unique salty lake, in which bathers rather float than sink, and a muddy shoreline that holds the earth’s greatest concentration of skin-moisturizing minerals. The sea water is filled with a one-of-a-kind, age-delaying algae; and skin-soothing plants that grow in the driest desert conditions. Once the legendary, personal spa of Cleopatra it has become a modern-day oasis for people everywhere seeking its clinically-proven skin therapies and treatments.

The AHAVA Dead Sea Laboratories have developed the exclusive Osmoter™, a blend of Dead Sea minerals that helps delivering moisture to even the deepest layers of the skin. It’s a sensation that says “my skin reborn”, included in all three products below. I have tested them all and am absolutely convinced of their replenishing power.

Comforting Cream Ahava


This effective calming moisturizer provides total relief from sensitive skin and can be used every day or for occasional flare-ups. It soothes irritations, reduces redness and lessens the skin’s reaction to aggressors by fortifying the skin’s natural barrier and providing deep hydration and nourishment. A MUST FOR SENSITIVE SKIN! You will thank me forever!

A fast-firming, active mineral based mask that provides skin with a vital boost of radiance. Enriched with hydrating Dead Sea minerals, Moroccan Argan oil, and augmented by a rich concentrate of detoxifying botanical extracts from the Himalayas, the ingredients combine their collective powers to achieve an instantly firmer, smoothly toned youthful complexion.
