One of my favorite skin care products of all time is the face cream made by AHAVA, a company indigenous to to the Dead Sea region.

The Dead Sea is known for its mineral-rich curative powers. Cleaopatra once made this oasis her own personal spa, so you know it must be good. Today even the plebians can benefit from this beautiful and healthful place, as AHAVA combines modern research with ancient skin soothing remedies.

The facial moisturizer is rapidly absorbed by the skin without a greasy feel. It is long lasting and smells light and fresh. I use it as a night time cream as well as in the mornings (it works well under makeup.) Having rather dry skin in the winter makes me fully appreciate this product, which incidentally, is hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested.

I usually get my AHAVA fix from a friend who picks it up on her way back from Israel. You can also find it online and in some specialty shops!
