When you think vegan, paraben-free beauty, what comes to mind for you? Boring? Smelly? Not so rich and luxurious? Yeah, those rather lackluster products do exist. Not to say they aren’t effective but between you and me, they don’t always inspire love and loyalty.
But some beauty lines have managed to figure out how to deliver both — ingeniously crafted, luxe formulations that are eco-conscious and lean on botanical ingredients to nurture our skin.
Case in point, AHAVA. Now here’s a line deeply rooted in nature with an undeniable spa quality. Their promise of no fillers, no fluff, no falseness rings true of their overriding philosophy and the quality ingredients in their products.
I’m a longtime fan of the AHAVA brand and love their dedication to bridging nature and science and wrapping them up in products with at-home spa experience.
Two AHAVA finds you’ll want to integrate into your own home selfcare routine is their Purifying Mud Mask and Essential Day Moisturizer.
Why? Well, how much time do you have? I’ll get to the point….
Purifying Mud Mask
There is nothing, I mean nothing, like a great mud mask. Mud is great for pushing out impurities from your pores as it dries. AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask is the “holy grail” of mud mask (taken from an actual review) because of the added benefits of the mineral-rich Dead Sea mud. I slather it on post-shower a couple times a week.
As it dries, you can feel your skin tightening and It has a very clean aroma. You can smell the Dead Sea minerals along with subtle whiffs of the rich botanicals like fruit and flower extracts. The best part is that once you rinse it off, your skin feels clean, smooth and refreshed but not parched and dry.
Essential Day Moisturizer
Available in Normal to Dry and Combination Skin formulations, AHAVA Essential Day Moisturizer provides a host of skin-nurturing vitamins and botanicals in a rich and dreamy moisturizing cream. It’s no exaggeration to say that this best-seller leaves a dewy finish to your skin and feels like donning a superhero cape to protect your skin from moisture loss. Loaded with 21 essential minerals, this daily cream is formulated to lock in hydration and keep your complexion balanced and protected from hydration loss. It has a subtle, pleasantly floral scent.
And a little tip. When you use both the mask and the moisturizer, don’t forget your neck! Get in the habit of doing everything you do to your face to your neck and even upper chest.
