Cleopatra's Choice Products Review



I recently got to review some really awesome facial/skincare products that I think you will also find exciting and that really does work! One of the many lines that Cleopatra's Choice offers is called Adovia Mineral Skincare. I have previously used Adovia's hand cream several years back when I ran across them in a store while traveling up north. I loved the way it felt on my hands and so when I got the chance to review a few more products, well, I just had to say YES!

Here is what I got to review:

1. Dead Sea Mud Soap
2. Moisturizing Day Cream
3. Purifying Mud Mask

Since I already have the picture of the Dead Sea Mud Soap up at the very top, I will start with that one, besides it really is the first thing that you should do before putting anything else on. The great thing about this soap is that you can use it on your face or body! Now, that is my kind of soap so we wash everything all at once and not have to use 2 kinds of soap.

Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Soap gives you these benefits:

**Great for Eczema, Psoriasis or Acne!
**Adovia Mud Soap removes dirt and cleanses your skin, while simultaneously infusing it with minerals essential to keeping your skin hydrated and moisturized.
**Enriched with century old Dead Sea mud, leaving your skin cleansed and nourished
**The mud soap gently cleanses away oil, bacteria and dirt particles, leaving skin purified, detoxified and fully cleansed.
**Note: This soap has been found effective at relieving acne.
 

I don't know if you have ever used a clay like type mask before, but if you have, then this is sorta similar to that. It really does a great job of tightening your pores so they don't look so big and so that your makeup does not fall into those pores, thus making your face look uneven in spots. I have been using clay like mud masks for years and I really like Adovia's the best.
 
Why? Well, here's why:
Made from a formula comprised of mud extracted from the Dead Sea, Vitamin C and Aloe Vera, the mask works to extract oil and other debris from the skin – leaving behind glowing, healthy skin. As the mask dries, it gently pulls out toxins and impurities that can contribute to clog pores that can make the skin appear aged.

It will also help to give you these added benefits:

**Adovia Purifying Dead Sea Mud Mask is a great solution for treating and preventing acne.
**The product can work as an emergency spot-treatment for acne, pimples and blemishes.
**The product leaves the skin with a noticeable healthy glow.
**Dead Sea mud infuses the skin with minerals while firming and improving skin elasticity.
**Adovia Purifying Dead Sea Mud Mask is a “MUST-HAVE” product for anyone who suffers from oily or acne-prone skin.

Your face should look like this to get the maximum benefit from the mud:
 
If you will use the (2) products I just told you about together as part of your regime, you will notice a difference in your skin. Everyone's skin is different and we all won't get the same results in the same amount of time, I can only tell you about mine. I saw healthier looking skin within 2 weeks, which is about normal. I know alot of company's say their product works instantly or in a few days, but I have found that not to be true. I always tell my friends to give it a good (2) weeks before you make any snap decisions.

Lastly, I want to tell you about their Day Cream. I like my day creams to be light and hardly noticeable, so I was excited to see how this one would go on and I wasn't disappointed! In the end, people will wonder why your skin has than new, natural "glow". I have been getting more and more into the mineral cosmetics and skincare because they seem to make my skin look better as I age.
 
The regular makeup that I used to use when I was younger no longer works for me now. It's the same color and same product but when I try to use it, the liquid foundation just ends up sitting there and making me look hollowed out. Thus, was my reason for seeking out a "new" way to do makeup and skincare.

Here are the benefits of the Moisturizing Day Cream:

**With Dead Sea Minerals, All Natural UV Protection and Aloe Vera.
**HYPOALLERGENIC. DERMATOLOGIST TESTED & APPROVED.
**Moisturize and protect your skin with Adovia's quick absorbing and non-greasy, daytime moisturizer.
**Quenches your skin's thirst with natural, deep hydration that lasts all day giving you a more radiant complexion.
**Helps protect skin from harmful effects of the sun and daily pollutants without clogging your pores.
**Contains an active complex of Dead Sea Minerals for natural moisture balance.

I love it because it truly makes my face feel less dry but without all that goop added and making me feel like I have a pound of grease on my face! I hope that you will give some of these awesome products a try. You won't be sorry that you did try them.
 
Oh, I also have some interesting facts to let you in on and one is if you order $49 and over, shipping is FREE in the United States. Also, they will give you 90 days in which to return any items and lastly you can earn loyalty reward points every time you place an order. They also give you $10 for each friend that you refer and they make a purchase.

I found this interesting piece on their site telling us why they call themselves Cleopatra's Choice:

Why are you called Cleopatra's Choice?
Cleopatra was a Queen of ancient Egypt and is legendary as the most beautiful woman in the world at that time. She was famous for her youthful skin and looks which stayed radiant and healthy even as her age progressed. Cleopatra thought so highly of skin care products from the sea, that she went to great expense to have cosmetic factories built on the shores of the sea.

Their remains can still be seen today at Ein Bokek and Ein Gedi. Since we started Cleopatra's Choice by selling primarily Dead Sea products and Dead Sea salt, and we believe that Cleopatra was no fool when it came to beauty, youthful looks and healthy skin, we decided to name our website Cleopatra's Choice. Our belief is that you too deserve to treat your skin like royalty.

Today Cleopatra's Choice represents the finest choices of the most unique and effective skin care secrets found around the world. We travel the planet to find these products for you, and bring them to your door along with the story of what they are about.

Also I ordered the Macadamia Nut Shampoo, Conditioner, which they call (rinse). I also bought the Macadamia leave in cream, a little goes along ways. I have noticed my hair being healthier and I have been using it for 3 shampoos. I have very dry frizzy hair especially in humidity.
I do not have acne or bug pores, so I am all set there. I had to share their hair products, so I am sure all their products are really excellent.:)
