Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Review

Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Review

Skin care products are everywhere and the price tags vary. There is always some miracle cream that promises to take 5 years off and restore your skin to infancy like conditions.

All it costs is your entire life savings and the promise of your first-born.

In case you are like me (and many other women) and don’t have the extra $$$ to drop on skin care products and cosmetics there are other options. Would you believe there are products out there that work and are affordable? Oh yea there are!

Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Review

Recently Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics sent over a bunch of their products to try out. While a couple weren’t really hits with me, there were a few stand out players.

The Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Skin Renewal Facial Peel is probably my favorite of all of the products. The product itself is a little misleading, but the results I saw definitely put a smile on my face.

See, the Facial Peel starts out as a non-conspicuous liquid; no texture or color, just a clear liquid. Once you start rubbing it, it balls up which could make one think that the newly formed texture is the impurities being removed. Instead this texture seems to be what helps remove the dead skin, kind of like a scrub but way more gentle.

After just one use though my skin looked healthier and the unsightly blackheads that plague my nose were almost nonexistent. One use and my blackheads basically disappeared. That right there was proof enough for me that the Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Skin Renewal Facial Peel is awesome.

I wanted to love the Ultra Rich Body Butter, but the antique fragrance (it reminds me of my grandmother’s perfume) and a slight burning sensation put a stop to that. I’m sure it’s just a sensitive skin issue, something to do with the fragrance, since others have tried it and not had the same experience.

The Avani Ultra Rich Body Butter does leave the skin feeling soft and moisturized and the fragrance seems to fade after a while. The texture of the body butter reminds me of cold cream, you know the stuff you used to remove your Halloween makeup as a kid.

I am a fan of the Natural Mineral Body Scrub. It’s similar to your typical exfoliant, no overwhelming smell and a gentle scrub that gets rid of dry, flaky skin.

The Natural Mineral Body Scrub leaves the skin feeling new and refreshed, which is what you’d expect from a body scrub.

The Cellular Restore Night Cream and Eternal Face and Neck Cream are other products from Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics that I wanted to love. The packaging says ‘All Skin Types‘ but I wouldn’t suggest these for sensitive skin. They adds a great amount of moisture, however the slight burning sensation was felt with this too.

The products I had the worst luck with all seem to have the same added fragrance that I’d like to attribute the burning sensation to. My skin gets that feeling whenever I used a heavily scented product.

One of the many things I am thankful for is my lack of wrinkles and sagging eyes. I started getting grey hair in my early twenties so I was expecting more signs of aging by now. Luckily (knock on wood) I haven’t had to worry about sagging eyes yet, but I know it is only a matter of time.

I have been using the Defining Eye Lift Serum semi-regularly to hopefully put that off for even longer. This is a collagen enriched serum designed to stave off the signs of aging by keeping your under eye area firm and toned.

I can’t really comment on how it works since I haven’t experienced the other side of the coin. I can say I still haven’t seen any sagging since using it!


The Deep Cleansing Mud Facial Gel is a new concept for me. I have used mud masks before and love them, but this isn’t that. It’s actually not very mud-like at all. It’s more like a soap but leaves your face feeling like you’ve just had a facial. It’s not a harsh cleanser so I can see it working with most skin types.

The Mineral Cleansing Milk is gentle with a refreshing fragrance. It’s another Avani product for all skin types. It helps wipe away blemish causing stuff and leaves your skin feeling light and healthy.

Overall I’m thrilled with Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics. While the prices may sway you, you can find most of their products on Amazon at deep discounts. ($99 retail on the Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics website to $15 retail on Amazon.) Don’t worry if you can’t find something on Amazon, we have a coupon (valid through January 15th 2016) to take 50% off of the entire Avani website.

Karuna Skin Transformation Kit Review

I have always been a sucker for facial masks. I am always down for pampering myself because, well, I am awesome and I deserve it. There is nothing like the way my face looks and feels after I use a facial mask. So soft, hydrated and dare I say glowing. The only issue I have ever faced with facial masks is the mess that comes with them. Regardless of whether it is mud, clay, or another liquid I always find my hands and the surrounding area turn into a goopy mess. That has deterred me from using facial masks as often as I should. That is until I received the Karuna Skin Transformation Kit for review. Now I have to stop myself from using a facial mask several times a day!

Karuna Facial Masks

What is awesome about these facial masks from Karuna is they are a no-muss, no-fuss, no-mess facial mask. Each package includes a serum-infused cloth mask with the eyes, nose and mouth already cut out for you. You simply peel the backing off and place it on your face then relax. The relaxing part is redundant because you really cannot help but relax when a facial mask is involved!

I am loving this Skin Transformation Kit from Karuna. It has 6 different masks plus an eye mask so there is going to be tons of self love and pampering happening. The masks have left my face feeling so amazing and the time I had to just lay back and close my eyes while the masks did their thing rocked. I don’t get a lot of me time which seems crazy since I’m by myself most of the time. I am always doing something though and rarely take any time to just enjoy life. These masks have let me do that – I can clear my mind and smile for no reason. It’s awesome.


Each mask uses a generous amount of the active liquids. There is definitely no skimping.

I haven’t mentioned the best part of theses masks. You do not have to rinse!! Yes, that is right. Once your mask is ready to come off you simply peel it off and toss it. You can even use it to moisturize your hands. There is absolutely no mess with the Karuna masks – yay! Karuna is a professional DIY skincare line known for producing no-rinse, serum-infused sheet masks targeting specific skin concerns for all skin types.


I realize the picture above may be a little scary (haha) but I wasn’t using a mirror when I put it on. As you can see I have it a little lower than it should be but the precut holes are designed to fit all face shapes comfortably. There is plenty of wiggle room for bigger and smaller faces. These would make an excellent gift for the beauty aficionado in your life but be sure to get a kit for yourself as well!
