Earlier this week, a wonderful package of Ahava Skincare products arrived at my door. When I opened the box I couldn’t believe it was Ahava’s new Prickly Pear and Moringa skincare line! I had been looking at these products on their website for about a week wishing I was able to try them. Well, Ahava saw my posts and sent me the products complimentary for my review.
I live in southern Arizona and have Prickly Pear Cactus growing in my yard and everywhere in the wild around me home. Every summer we pick the pears and use them to make jams and pies. They taste delicious and are full of health benefits. Prickly pear cactus, also called nopal, is promoted for treating diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, and hangovers. It is also touted for its antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Some preliminary evidence shows that prickly pear cactus can decrease blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.Prickly pear contains magnesium, amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins C and B, beta-carotene, iron, calcium, potassium, and many other nutrients.
The beauty benefits of Prickly Pear Cactus comes from cold pressed seeds into oils . The oils have not widely been known until recently. Beauty experts are now saying goodbye to Argan oil and hello to Prickly Pear oil. The oil contains vitamins E and K, Prickly pear seed oil is an excellent choice for mature, aging or damaged skin.
This photo is from the plant in my yard, the fruit is almost ready for picking in about two more weeks when it turns a bit darker purple. You pick them with tongs and then burn the thorns off. I absolutely love this plant so needless to say I am thrilled with Ahava’s use of the plant in their new products.
Deadsea Water Mineral Body Lotion with Prickly Pear and Moringa. The bottle is 8.5 fl oz with a nice pump applicator.
Every day after I get out of the shower with my skin still a bit damp I slather my body in this lotion. The texture is very silky, light weight with a soft scent of Moringa and Prickly Pear. My skin has become nicely hydrated and so soft. This is now a regular part of my daily skin care routine.
Deadsea Plants Dry Oil Body Mist with Prickly Pear and Moringa
This gorgeous smelling body mist really boosts my mood. Moringa is one of my favorite scents I find refreshing, clean, light floral soft and subtle for every occasion. The mist is a dry oil that hydrates and softens your skin with no oily feel. Best I can describe the spray feels like you are putting silk on your skin, so soft. I gently rub it all over my body and all over my hair for a long lasting scent. Excellent for layering the scent with the body lotion. Light green glass bottle with a nice spray applicator comes in 3.4 fl oz.
- Jojoba Seed Oil, one of nature’s greatest replenishing agents, smoothes, softens and hydrates skin

This is my favorite product of the line. I am using it constantly !
Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Creme Prickly Pear and Moringa
Over the years I have used hundreds of hand creams and none of them compare to this product. This cream leaves my hands absolutely silky smooth and very hydrated. I have a problem with eczema patches on my fingers. And sore Rheumatoid nodules on my joints that become red and swollen. I’m sure the Prickly Pear in this cream is helping these issues. My dry spots are gone and the swelling of my nodules has reduced. I do catch myself applying the cream three to four times a day because I love the smell and feel so much. I know Prickly Pear is, known to have anti-inflammatory properties to it but I am not a doctor so I cant say for sure. But I am happy with the results!! I carry this in my purse along with the body mist.
- Allantoin heals dry cracked skin and blemishes
- Witch Hazel extracts sanitizes and smoothes skin, providing a refreshing, revitalizing effect
The Allantoin could be what’s healing my hands as well as the Prickly Pear properties.
