Body care from the Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is said to be one of the world's natural wonders. It is often credited as the first centre of skin care the world has known as it is now a world-renowned natural health spa with its abundance of healthy minerals and salt. This unique source of natural care has been used by the Premier Dead Sea laboratories to produce wonderful, rich skin care products.

"Compared to the 3% salt content of ordinary sea water, the Dead Sea water contains 32% salts with relatively high concentration of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, bromide and potassium. Exposure to Dead Sea water is uniquely acclaimed for nourishing the skin, easing rheumatic discomfort, activating the circulatory system, and relaxing the nerves. "

I am always so interested in ancient and natural beauty rituals. You easily convince me when a products has this kind of story to tell, and when I visited the Premier shop in Venice I could just sense the legend of Cleopatra bathing in the Dead Sea, using her soft and nourished skin to seduce her Marcus Antonius. Knowing that the products from Premier all come from Dead Sea minerals and are absolutely a revival for your skin, just made me want to test the products really bad. Especially with the colder days and its danger for dry skin coming closer, I really wanted to go for a body care product.

Therefore I got the Aromatic Salt Scrub and the Milk and Honey Body Butter. The scrub uses natural Dead Sea salt crystals, in a blend with selected aromatic oils. I carefully took not too much of it, with a spoon out of the pot to not get any water in it, and scrubbed my full body - neck to toes - with these fragranced salt crystals. The scrub is not too mild, you really feel that you're taking away dead skin cells yet you don't look all red and hurt after rubbing it around. When I rinsed my skin with water, I felt that the scrub left an oily feeling on my skin which I absolutely LOVE! It just makes your skin ten times softer and I'm a sucker for oils anyway, so this is a real plus for me. You don't get the feeling that you scrubbed and rinsed and that all is gone ; the product really leaves its positive effect on your skin.

After my bath, I used the body butter. I love the smell of this after the scrub. I specifically asked for the most neutral smelling body butter and I really got one with a pleasant, subtle but REALLY amazing smell. It smells and feels so luxurious, it's really hard to describe how much I love the fragrance of both the scrub and the body butter.

My skin had never been as soft as after this bath, and I can really assure you that I am not exaggerating. As you only have to use it once a week, the scrub is said to last a year. Well then, this will definetly be a year of body care love!

So excited to try more from Premier as well!
