Parcel of Goodies! (Part 2) Review : Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Mineral Eye Cream

Jesus!  If there’s ever a reader out there, I’m totally sorry for the lack of updates.  Traveling, old story retold, has taken a toll on me.  The very lack of time, lack of mental space, and the lack of updates.

For those who still read, *muacks* –  kiss on your forehead.

In a strange way of coincidence, I ONLY opened Cheek Venom today cause damn it, my skin is too glowy for any makeup!  😛  So I thought I’d give this a try, see how pinched cheeks look like.  But for the sake of a sequential review, I should review the Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics – Mineral Eye Cream for this post.  Check out Part 1 here.

First off, a little introduction on the company and the products.  I bought this range of Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics  from MySale.   And boy, did it take long.  In a nutshell, they are from a US company but all ingredients, manufacture are all done in Israel.  So, purest of the pure of the dead sea related benefits.  So, there’s that.

What Are The Claims?

And What Are The Ingredients?

The Ingredients

Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Mineral Eye Cream – The Ingredients

I’m not sure what the first sign says, but glob it I wanna pinch the butt out of the bunny.  So there you have it!  The packaging is recyclable, not tested on animals especially cute little bunnies, and it’s PARABEN-FREE.  And I”m guessing that this can last another 18 mths after it’s opened, guessing from the first icon.  Not only that, the listed ingredients look actually ass-kicking.

*2 thumbs up*

The Experience

Alright, as stated on the label it is a light textured cream.  But this should have a class of its own cause it’s been days and I still can’t figure out the right word to describe the texture.  The closest thing I could think of, do you remember when we were kids?  Or… back in the 90s, there’s this jar of white cream with a picture of an ice berg?  That’s supposed to make you skin beautiful or something.

The White (Fluffy) Texture

The White (Fluffy) Texture

The texture is very similiar but lighter than that.  It is spreadable, yet again so easily absorbed.  It leaves NO RESIDUE at all.  None, I swear by God.  Unlike any other cream, or even eye gel, it absorbs so well and there’s no trace of oil, stickiness, or any that you would relate to any eye cream.  For the lack of a better word, it dries even better than a serum!

One way to find out, is I’ve been experimenting with this eyelid tapes of late.  (I totally f-ed it up)  And because of this I haven’t been applying any eye cream/gel/mask to my eyelids, just on the eye bags.  Because if your eyelids are wet/oily, the eyelid tapes won’t stick and when greasy, they become visible.  But amazingly, with this eye cream, it just absorbs so well that allows you to use the eyelid tapes without sliding off.  And the eyelid tapes don’t appear greasy and become visible.

And what more, it comes in such a huge jar!  Like I said, it’s highly spreadable.  So a week into it now it hasn’t even dipped!

Bunny!

Bunny!

The Conclusion

I quite like it.  I think I’ve gone past the point of believing in magical claims so as long as the cream is sturdy, does what it does, keeps my eyes protected, hydrated without funny side effects, it counts as a pass in my book.  Only thing is it’s a HUGE jar, it kinda prevents me from… shopping for more!  What kinda valid complaint is this, sigh… *first world problem*

The Experience

As you can see, the sea salt is not infused with the oil, they are just incorporated in a jar.  The first time I used it, I almost gave it a 2/5.  One thing, I kinda had a nappy rash (oops!) on my bum and … really? salt on open wound?  Brilliant.

Upon opening the jar, my first concern was definitely that the oil will finish/dry up way before the sea salt does.  And I’ll tell you, these sea salts r like the size of… evil sharp crystals man!  So What am I gonna do when all the good and heavenly oil run out?  Cook with the sea salt?  Might as well I pan fry some dead sea fish with the nutritious oil and  season it with this dead sea sea salt.

And if you are the type that likes really clean and dry skin after shower, you will hate this product.  No shit.  Because, your skin is just infused with oil, you definitely don’t get that squeaky clean feel.  After shower, there are droplets of water on your skin, which is kinda a cool sight to look at.

But by my second use, I like it, heck, I enjoy it more now!  Somehow I grab a handful of ’em badass sounding sea salt (trying to squeeze as much oil out as possible) and start my scrubbing ritual.  And this time, probably without any open wound, the sea salt doesn’t feel rocky, and it actually melts!

So I scrub scrub and scrub… so much fun you can have on your own! 😛

Well, if you’ve been paying attention of my chronic severe dry skin with atopic dermatitis, I certainly don’t mind the sensation of oil infused in skin.  (Not like baby oil rubbed and layered on your skin, this actually penetrates into your skin.)

The Verdict

If you need and immediate dry skin relief due to pro-longed air conditioning or you need a winter rescue kit, this would be perfect for you.

For those who hate any form of oiliness and are used to harsh form wash to be considered a fresh-and-clean shower.  You would definitely want to take another shower.
