Hello lovelies,

this one brand is quite special for me. I’ve used AHAVA since 10 years ago, my mom bought them during her trip to the Israel and Egypt. It wasn’t anything fancy like the new packaging and the whole collections as seen nowadays, but I already very much love their original dead sea mud, suncare and hand cream too. All in the old bottle, tube, and pack, but still, ’till this day, their scent and effectiveness unchanged.

Thanks to @Phanie14 I’m trying Time To Hydrate Essential Day Moisturizer, normal to dry skin type.


Details from ahava.com:

This creamy, gel-textured formula transforms into a light absorbing moisture cream when it touches the skin for a cool and refreshing sensation.

  • Amino Acids are rich in humectants
Ingredients: Aqua (Mineral Spring Water), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Isopropylmyristate, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Propanediol (Corn derived Glycol), Alanine & Creatine & Glycerin & Glycine & Magnesium Aspartate & Saccharide Hydrolysate & Urea, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Peg-40 Stearate, Sorbitan Tristearate, Caprylyl Glycol & Chlorphenesin & Phenoxyethanol, Maris Sal (Dead Sea Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Dimethicone, Allantoin, Parfum (Fragrance), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Coumarin, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Linalool. Do not use if you are hypersensitive to one of the ingredients.

The scent is that signature scent of AHAVA, it’s like going back to 10 years ago, the rich feeling of the cream also still feels the same. I love how it pampers my skin like none other. The minerals are indeed different. Smooth on the skin and the feeling does last longer than any other cream. Those who have oily skin should not use this product as there are some oils felt. So please read and consult before purchasing to get the correct range for the skin.

For my normal to dry skin, it was a match made ^__^ the feeling of hydration last long and stays there until the next day. I don’t feel a cool and refreshing sensation, more like hydration, like swimming in the sea and the skin absorb the minerals from it and become plump.

Use it after cleansing, toner and serum. So far, I’m able to use with other brand and range. Suitable for long wear with minimum retouch in a dry climate including in-flight air.
