Ever heard of the Dead Sea? The Dead Sea is a unique body of water, referred to as the largest 'Natural Spa' in the world. It is the lowest point on earth at 417meters (1,373 feet) below sea level and is located in Israel. It's actually referred to as it's own mini-universe because it's got a unique micro-climate with an average of 330 full days of sunshine per year. It's the saltiest and most mineral laden body of water in the world and is most famous for it's mineral black mud.

Why the history lesson you ask? Well because this brand which I am about to share with you is a product line created using elements from the Dead Sea! MERSEA DEAD SEA aims at being the first major Dead Sea extensive product line in Nigeria. Their products are manufactured, packaged and distributed from Israel. Unlike lots of other dead sea companies which acquire their ingredients from Israel but manufacture elsewhere, like Europe, Australia, etc.  I got my hands on a few of their products which I am about to share in this post!

I haven't been able to try out most of these products yet because I have been dealing with some skin issues. I mistakenly used an expired makeup product early last month and my skin is STILL trying to recover from that. So, I've had to scale back on a lot of the skincare products I use in an effort to just allow my skin heal itself. Sometimes "doing too much" may just aggravate the issue. Nevertheless, the fact I am not able to use some of these products doesn't mean I can't share them with you guys.


Mersea Hand Cream and Nails - N1,600

Mersea Aromatic Body Peeling (Body Scrub) - N3, 600

Mersea Facial Cleansing Soap pH5.5 - N1, 900

Mersea Dead Sea Mineral Acne Soap - N1,000

Mersea Dead Sea Mineral Black Mud with Aloe Vera - N1,600
One thing that stood out for me the most with these products were their prices, this is affordable skincare at its best!

Mersea products all contain minerals derived from the Dead Sea as well as essential vitamins and oils formulated to provide a vast array of benefits including:

-         Restore the skin’s elasticity
