Aqua Spa Body Cleanser Review

I strongly believe that one should make time spent in the shower as relaxing and enjoyable as possible...even if it's one of those two minutes showers that seem to be occurring with more frequency as we are all continuously pressed for time. One of the best ways to turn shower time Read more

Pretty Woman Kingfisher Feather Polish Review

I love the look of textured nail polish. However, many textured polishes tend to scrape off easily making the effort of applying them practically useless. The Feather polishes from Pretty Woman are another story entirely. You can achieve a textured look that is still smooth to the touch minimizing Read more

Health and Beauty Dead Sea Minerals Review



Health & Beauty Dead Sea Minerals #Skincare

The Dead Sea is known for its one-of-a-kind mineral-rich properties. It is highly sought after in skin and body care because of how well it nourishes the skin.

Health & Beauty Dead Sea Minerals, an Israeli based beauty brand, recently reached out to me to try some of their skin care. This winter has caused carnage with my skin, so I agreed without batting an eye.

Soapless Face Peeling with Dead Sea Mud: This is an exfoliating cleanser that contains dead sea mud, green tea extract, argan oil, olive oil, tea tree oil, aloe vera and chamomile. It is gentle enough for everyday use. The consistency is like a thin gel and it’s not drying to your face. The exfoliation is nice and my skin felt great after using it. It does have a strong fragrance to it.

Purifying Mud Mask: I do love a good mud mask, which always works best with my combination skin. While oftentimes the downside is that clay or mud masks can tend to also be drying, this particular mud mask is enriched with aloe vera. While Health and Beauty says this product is safe for use 2-3 times per week, I always advise to only use a mud mask 1-2 to prevent skin from going into overdrive with sebum production. The texture of this mud mask is creamy and it does have that familiar mud fragrance that I love. Read more
