I’m reporting live, from the icy tundra that is currently Austin, Texas! I am still staying home as much as possible, but I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday morning, and I picked the coldest day to leave the house.
It was a whopping 32 degrees when I left, and while I was at the appointment, it started raining… and all of that rain turned to ice! When I got home, the tree outside my apartment had a layer of ice on it, and the stairs to my apartment were super slick.
It was storming all day, so I pretty much worked from underneath my electric blanket. I woke up around 2:30 this morning because someone was scraping ice off their windshield and it seriously sounded like someone was sawing through a 2×4.
Anyway, it’s supposed to stay this way all weekend — but I had no real plans of going anywhere. If it’s not so dangerous on the roads, I would like to get takeout, but we’ll see.
So, let’s get into the product review because it’s actually perfect for winter + a weekend of indoor self-care. It’s the Ahava Liquid Dead Sea Salt.
Full disclosure: Ahava is officially a brand I love. I have yet to try something I didn’t like, so whenever I see any product on sale, I buy it, and this was one of those items. The reviews were mixed, I think because it’s a very unique product.
So, what the heck is this? It’s literally liquid dead sea salt, with a little algae. It’s in a gel-like form (a tad more liquidy than a gel). It’s meant to add minerals back into the skin and help it retain moisture better.
You put it on your skin and let it sit for two minutes before rinsing it off. I have been putting it on and letting it sit while I fill up the bathtub. By the time the bath is ready, it’s time to rinse it off. You can also put some of it in your warm bathwater, but I haven’t done that yet.
It’s not a product you necessarily NEED — this is definitely a treat. And, you won’t notice a difference right away. But, per usual, I’m a fan. You can smell the salt when you start putting it on, which probably doesn’t sound desirable, but it makes me feel like I’m at a spa.
All Ahava products are vegan, paraben-free, no fillers, no fake stuff… and that’s another reason why they’re gaining points with me. I swear this isn’t sponsored!
There was one review i read that said this made the person’s skin feel like they’d swam in the Dead Sea — one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water. I haven’t been there, so I wouldn’t know, but it stuck with me. Maybe when we can travel again, I’ll go and report back 🙂
Have a great weekend!
