So I have been trying out these two cream washes from Ahava a company that specialises in Dead Sea Mineral Products.
Velvet Cream Wash – 500ml £15.00
What Ahava say – ‘Your skin is for life – protect it well. Ahava Mineral Botanic is a body wash free of harsh detergents, prepared with healthy Dead Sea minerals, sunflower oil and organic plant extracts. That is why its foam is different and more velvety than regular soaps. Work with a sponge for a richer lather and let the soothing blend of Orange & Frangipani revive your skin with their refreshing, moisturising and antioxidant properties. Love your skin. SLS/SLES free, Paraben free, Approved for sensitive skin and Allergy tested‘
What I say – The first thing I noticed was the smell its a really nice orangy refreshing smell, perfect for my morning shower! I then noticed how creamy it was as I applied it to my skin it actually felt like a moisturiser that was lathering up in to nice tiny silky bubbles, plus a little goes a long way. It left me feeling refreshed but not as soft as I had hoped it would of from the texture of the actual wash but it didn’t dry me out just left my skin feeling normal, it also didn’t linger on my skin afterwards which I was a bit disappointed about too. I love the fact that it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals though so you don’t feel like you are being stripped or have that film like residue left on your skin.
Micro-Peeling Cream Wash – 500ml – £15.00
What Ahava say – ‘Your skin is for life – protect it well. Ahava Mineral Botanic is a body wash free of harsh detergents, prepared with Dead Sea minerals, sunflower oil and olive and apricot seed powder for gentle peeling. That is why its foam is different and more velvety than regular soaps. Work with a sponge for richer lather and let the unique composition of Water Lily & Guarana protect your skin with their moisturising, soothing and stimulating properties. Love your skin. SLS/SLES free, Paraben free, Approved for sensitive skin and Allergy tested’
What I say – I am just going to come right out and say that I LOVE IT!! First off the smell is what I would describe clean, creamy and fresh but maybe that’s what Water Lily’s and Guarana smell like but I wouldn’t have a clue about that. (I have used this with my hands and with my exfoliating gloves and each time have achieved the same results as I am about to tell you) This lathers up the same as the Velvet cream wash with the tiny silky bubbles but also has loads of lovely little scrubby bits in it that I could feel really working away at my skin, the only downside to this one is the fact it is quite runny so be careful not to squeeze to hard or you will have way too much product plus a little really does go a long way with these.
It left my skin feeling the softest I have ever felt it after coming out of a shower/bath, I was possibly even softer than after I moisturise… I have never felt my skin like this before ever!
The scent also stayed around with this one which is surprising seeing as the Velvet cream wash has more of a stronger smell but it was so nice to get whiffs of fresh, clean and creamy throughout the day.
Once I run out of the Micro-Peeling cream wash I will definitely buy another one as it is gorgeous plus I can see it lasting a very long time so I wont mind the £15.00 price tag but I will not be buying the other, maybe the reason I don’t like it as much is because I had tried the Micro-Peeling cream wash first so had extra high hopes for it but they are both nice products but just with the scrub coming out trumps for me personally.
You can buy both of these from the Ahava website
What do you guys think of these? Are you wanting to try them out?
(These products were sent to me for the purpose of review, just because they were free it no way sways my opinion)
