During my trip to Israel back in December, one of the highlights was definitely visiting the Dead Sea. For years, I'd heard that it's impossible to sink -- that one will just float, no matter how hard you try to reach the bottom. And until I experienced it for myself, I just didn't understand how this was possible. But once I waded in, I discovered that this was in fact the case! Truly unbelievable.
Also unbelievable ... the AHAVA store set back from the beach. I'd seen AHAVA products before, I'd tried them before -- but, let's be honest, there's nothing like buying them in ISRAEL. I restrained myself and only bought a couple products, among them the AHAVA Mineral Eye Cream.
If you're looking for an eye cream that packs a moisture-filled punch, this is most certainly it. It's rich without being heavy, fluffy but somehow still substantial, and so amazingly cooling to the skin -- and it absorbs instantly, leaving behind no greasy residue. I like to apply it at night, giving my tired eyes a pick-me-up that lasts all the way through the next day. An all-natural blend of botanical essences, selected vitamins and Dead Sea minerals don't hurt, either.
