250 Gr Natural 8.5 Oz Bath Salt
6.8 Oz / 200 Ml Liquid Dead Sea Salt

NATURAL BATH SALT
Ease muscle tension, stimulate skin hydration and soften skin with 100% Dead Sea salt. Perfect for at home or on-the-go.
Directions For Use: Dissolve entire packet in warm bath water. Soak for 20 minutes and shower off. Rest for half an hour. Note: if you have a history of high blood pressure or are pregnant, please consult a physician before using.
I have used bath salts in the past but am talking a good few years back now so was very exciting to see how and why these differ and how my skin would be.
If you are thinking "why what's wrong with your skin" well just a little information for others I suffer with very sensitive skin and in the past had a lot of bad reactions / flare ups.
As time has gone on you learn that you do need to try new items and not shy away from them as I did in the past as if you did not you will do this you will find it even harder later to try new brands,its best to move away from this as you never know the next item you buy/try could be one of wonders for your skin!
Following the directions from the packaging is one of simplicity so no need for anyone to panic and think "rrrrr what do I do" as to be honest each product has ease of following instructions.The smell from the bath salts was not strong at all I was expecting a very powerful strong sent as you can with others and sometimes find it a little off putting,so was pleasant to find out it was not the case with these.
Did find myself relaxing in the bath and trying to sort out my aching shoulders from a stressful day running after two kids.
The only negative that I could find is if you have any cuts or nics the salt can sting them a little but that soon goes away.
MOISTURIZING SALT SOAP
A soapless bar that gently cleanses face and body, maintaining skin’s pH balance.
I have never been a huge fan of soaps especially for my face so I did use this on my body as you can do,did end up lathering the soap up into a foam and using it for my armpits for shaving and it seem to do the trick.
LIQUID DEAD SEA SALT
A liquid gel with a high concentration of minerals that supports skin renewal, detoxifies, and enhances moisture.
So glad that I found this liquid dead sea salt as never have I felt my skin so smooth as I did with this even after my bath when my Husband came home and gave my a cuddle he said "what have you done" at first did think what his he talking about then he said back to me "I mean with your skin its baby soft" and no did not prompt him at all and in the end did say its the dead sea liquid I have been trying out.
Texture from the liquid is very light and easy to apply to your skin.
SOFTENING BUTTER SALT SCRUB
A butter-textured body exfoliator - rich in natural salts, oils and sugar, that transforms into a lotion with water.
Use body exfoliators so much in my bathroom just love this one I take some of the scrub with a handful of water and rub it into my hips and thighs then to get maximum benefits take my body brush so that I can get even more out of this product.
Love that fact you get a couple if samples to try of other items from the brand to get you more involved and even finding new items you might not of gone for.
All in all my verdict of the dead sea spa collection is one of sheer delight would highly recommend this brand to friends & family and even thinking of ordering a few items for myself :)
Packaging from Ahava is just right its not over the top and its not underrated to me it has a clean fresh inviting adventure.
Skin disorders such as acne and psoriases can be relieved through a good, regular soak that contains water with added Dead Sea salt.
Having skin problems such as I said at the start with sensitive skin and Eczema had no problems at all and even found more skin to be more hydrated so keeping the Eczema at bay.

In the past I had used the Veet wax strips in sensitive not had only problems with the strips, but did want to find another type of system to see if I could do my legs quicker! Do suffer from dry and sensitive skin on my legs but also have other problems that prevent me from shaving my legs.Trying out this kit was one of great excitement to see if this system would cut the mustard. Ease of the set-up to the system is simple all you need to do is follow the instructions that are provided. Applying the wax my first thoughts from the roller "rrrr is going to drag on my skin" but it does not if you leave the wax roller to heat up and use it around 20-30 of heating up and glides very smoothly. I found myself getting very much into putting a few lines of was on when was a little more confident and found it to be quicker and more affective for me to do it is way, as back in the days of me being a Beauty Therapist was kind of used to doing this. Found the roller less painful then my strips not sure why don't know if the heat had anything to do with it? Always been a huge fan of the after wipes makes my skin that extra soft and calming feeling to my legs. Personally would of like a few more wax strips to be in with the kit as I think you will find you will need to buy some extra ones. Love that it has a light on the unit to show its heating up. Some tips to get the best from waxing....
Dos .Exfoiliate your skin 24 hours before and its good to stop ingrowing hairs. .Always test the temperature. .Always apply wax in the direction of hair growth. .When removing the cloth strip, hold your skin taut and quickly pull it off in the opposite direction of hair growth.
Dont's Don't wax the same area twice it can damage the skin plus be painful. Don't Pick ingrowing hairs as it my lead to infections. To see a guide all about waxing visit ----> How to hair removal guide
My verdict.... Veet electrical roller kit is very good at RRP of £30 you can pick it up for around £15 and refills at £10 (up to 4 wax sessions per refill) I think its a good deal and well worth buying and you can always get another re-fill when you run out. Got some good results from the system and would be very happy to recommend to others.Wax roller works wonders on small hairs and even very long. Very happy to keep on using the Veet roller kit.

Available from selected Tesco Stores and online, Dixons Travel, PC World, Carphone Warehouse, Argos and www.fitbug.com
Just a little intro to how and why this is good for my use I recently got married in May this year I had been on a healthy eating plus exercise plan prior to my wedding but after for the next few months I let go and went back to my old eating habits.
This had made me put on a little weight on and now I am unhappy with this so getting to review and try out the Orb was just the kick in the right direction I needed.
Once your Fitbug Orb arrives it comes presented in its own box that clearly tells you what the item is and how it tracks and what you can achieve from the orb,this is good if you are looking at the item in store.
How to setup your Fitbug Orb
Insert Fitbug battery
You’ll find your Fitbug battery in a plastic wrapper in the box. Remove the Fitbug battery from the plastic wrapping.
Use a small coin to remove the back of the Orb. Insert the Fitbug battery into the rear of the Orb. Make sure the rubber seal is firmly in place before you close the lid. Use a small coin again to twist and securely close the lid of the Orb.
There are two ways to sync your Orb to your Fitbug account
The Orb tracks steps, sleep, calories burned and motion and then sends this information wirelessly to your Fitbug account.
Make sure your Bluetooth is enabled on your mobile device before the setup process. Start the app and log in. Press the Devices tab and select your Orb. Then press Device setup and follow the onscreen instructions to setup your Orb..
Device set-up is complete
Remember to keep the app running in the background to synchronize data.
We hope you enjoy your Bug as much as we do, pleaseget in touch if you have any questions.
How the Orb works, sending your data
There are three ways to send data:
Push mode - Click the button once so the light goes green, this pushes the data to the Bluetooth device. The light will switch off once all the data has been sent.
To Stream your data as you walk, click the button twice. To show it' s working, the green light will blink every five seconds.
Beacon mode Sends data to your Fitbug dongle at regular intervals (every 15, 30, 45 minutes). Select Beacon mode on the Device Setup page after choosing your Orb from the paired devices list on Devices page.
To track your sleep, press the button three times rapidly (3 clicks within 2 seconds) before you go to bed. The light will flash to let you know that the sleep mode has been activated. To cancel, hold down the button until the light flashes again. Or walk fifty steps and the sleep mode will turn itself off.
Please leave in sleep mode for at least 30 minutes or your sleep will not be recorded.
Once all set up and I do have to say it took me 1 hour to do as did struggle with it and getting it to sync but if you are patient it does work.
When out and about I use the orb in the watch form as shown in the pictures above.
Found it comfortable to wear around my wrist and has several size settings.
Tracking all the information from the day is easy as you can see it all on your app on your phone or you can also online plus the added bonus of getting emails too.
Was happily shocked the amount of calories burned in just my first session but sometimes can get in your mind "oh I have burnt all this just with being out so now I don't have to exercise"
Try and get on top of that and make the effort to do your normal exercise routine as I have done such as going on my cross-trainer during the evening.Once you have this formula then you will see the benefits coming in for example loosing the pounds.
When at work I simply change the Fibbug Orb to the pocket clip.
I have now been using the Fitbug for around two weeks now and has become one of my favourite gadgets.
TO SUMMARIZE MY VERDICT ON FITBUG ORB
Benefits & Features
Fitness in a handy stylish piece of gadget
Battery life (around 6 months)
Data syncing with bluetooth
Downsides / Cons
Only comparable with certain devices & only a handful of Android ones
