Anti Aging Beauty Skincare Dead Sea Products Review & Giveaway, Ends 3/6/13

Giveaway details below

No one really can bottle the intrinsic beauty of the Dead Sea -- the lowest point on Earth -- along with the fictitious Fountain of Youth into a single bottle. Mineralium, an established Israeli brand now launching in the U.S., comes pretty darn close though. That's because they are one of an elite group of Dead Sea brands worldwide to be certified by Israel's Manufacture Association as an Israel Original Dead Sea Product maker.

What that means to consumers is that Mineralium's entire premium luxury skincare collection meets the highest standards for Dead Sea products, containing the required levels of genuine naturally occurring Dead Sea minerals that have provided a multitude of health and beauty benefits for centuries.

Over the years I've been privileged to visit the stunningly picturesque ancient land of Israel and the Dead Sea many times, mostly recently in Summer 2o12. So naturally I was excited when Mineralium offered me the opportunity to try and review three of their Made in Israel packaged beauty solutions leveraging the wonders of both Dead Sea Salt and Dead Sea Mud. 

The road down to the wonderous Dead Sea is as beautiful as the view from the shores of the saltiest body of water on the planet...

Now that you know a little about what makes the Dead Sea so special, let's get on with this review. In this blog post I'll be sharing my first-hand reactions and experiences stateside with some of the brand's popular Dead Sea based products including HydraSource Eye Cream, YouthSource Collagen Masque, and YouthSource Anti-Aging Cream.

The beautifully-packaged Mineralium Products that I received
I may be in my mid-50s but thanks to inheriting great skin from my mom I'm very fortunate to have a complexion with few wrinkles, making me look much younger than I actually am. As nice as my skin is, I have something to confess. I think I have the darkest chronic black circles under my eyes that you'll ever see and I absolutely hate them. So when it came to deciding where to start with this project, it was easy to pick the first product to experiment with: the Mineralium HydraSource Eye Cream, $50.

To try it I gently dotted on just a little bit of the eye cream in those problem areas under both my eyes in the morning and again before bed until it was well absorbed. Though this cream was very light weight on my skin, it felt totally hydrated and more supple after I applied it. Unlike other eye creams I've used before this one didn't leave sensitive under skin skin feeling either sticky or taut. The best part of all, the black circles under my eyes appeared almost to vanish after the first application.

I had similarly positive experiences with the other two products which included the Mineralium YouthSource Collagen Masque, $43 and YouthSource Anti-Aging Cream, $37.

Mineralium YouthSource Collage Masque
The masque -- designed to be applied twice a week -- is formulated for normal to dry skin and is rich with collagen which promotes healthy skin and cell renewal. From the first time I used this my face felt revitalized, freshened and more plumped up.

Mineralium YouthSource Anti-Aging Cream
The Anti-Aging Cream also produced results I could actually see and feel from the start. Using this once per day, I experienced a noticeable reduction in the fine lines and wrinkles that I thought were mine to keep. An added side benefit is that because my skin now feels more relaxed, I feel a whole lot less stressed overall. 

This close-up of me from a family portrait we had taken just this week says it all.

With such impressive results after just a few uses I can't wait to see how well the Mineralium products I received perform over time.
