While I'm fairly open to trying new products when it comes to facial skincare, I tend to stick with the same products in terms of body care. As summer approaches, I've been paying a bit more attention to the skin on my body to ensure that it will look it's best as I make the switch from long sleeves to short and pants and tights to bare legs. I added a sunless tanning product into the routine a few weeks ago and I'm now trying out this AHAVA Dead Sea Plants Firming Body Cream.
About the Brand: AHAVA Dead Sea Laboratories was founded to study the powerful, rejuvenating minerals found in the Dead Sea and grown to become the definitive Dead Sea mineral beauty expert. AHAVA's formulations use a unique blend of minerals from the Dead Sea: magnesium, calcium, bromides and potassium, necessary ingredients for glowing skin and overall good health, are present in unsurpassed concentrations. Their unique cruelty-free product line features the exclusive benefits of the Dead Sea paired with the latest innovations in skincare.
Product Claims: A nourishing anti-aging cream that defines body’s contours and recovers lost skin firmness while improving tone and elasticity. This product is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic and suitable for all skin types even sensitive.
Key Ingredients: Powered by Osmoter, AHAVA's exclusive blend of minerals, sourced from the waters of the Dead Sea which optimize cell metabolism, strengthens skin against UV damage, and significantly increases moisture levels to keep it looking young and supple. Caffeine and artichoke extracts promote firmness and improve tone in sagging areas while centela asiatica and palm date peptides encourage collagen and elastin production. Aloe vera gel cools inflammation. Green tea extract and vitamin E neutralize free radicals. Paraben and SLS/SLES-free.
Packaging: A plastic squeeze tube with a flip top dispenser.
Price: $39 for 6.8 oz / 200 mL
My Impressions: This product has a lightweight, silky texture that really makes it feel more like a cream than a lotion. Considering the dead sea ingredients, I expected it to have a marine scent but it's more of an overwhelming floral fragrance which I didn't particularly care for. At least it spreads evenly and absorbs quickly without feeling greasy. This cream works well as in terms of hydration leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturized. I'm not really sure about it's efficacy in terms of firming since I don't really have any saggy skin. My skin looks toned but I honestly can't tell if it appears any firmer. AHAVA Dead Sea Plants Firming Body Cream is a good moisturizer and the contouring benefits are nice but not something I need right now so I don't see this as a product I would repurchase. The strong scent was also off putting.
AHAVA Dead Sea Plants Firming Body Cream is available through Amazon and Skinstore, as well as the brand's own website.
