Melvita Moisturizing Rose Nectar (available here) - Rose floral water, extract of fresh Roses and Wild Rose petals make this ideal for dry and dehydrated skin. This sheer, comfortable cream intensely moisturizes the skin for 24 hours. Rose floral water acts as a direct source of hydration while extract of fresh roses forms a film that helps hold in the skin's natural moisture. Perfectly moisturized throughout the day, the skin feels soft and supple again – and the complexion looks beautifully rosy!
Melvita is a leading French skincare brand that specializes in skincare using the finest natural and organic ingredients. Not a commonly seen brand in most of the shops, Melvita is available online through their website or at a few stores that they have in in the US. It wasn't a brand I was familiar with until recently when I got to try out a couple of their products. The Melvita Nectar de Roses Facial Moisturizer is a product made for dehydrated skin and promises the hydrating benefits of rose water and rose extracts - organic ones, of course!
I love the clean packaging of the product with the pump dispenser - keeps the product clean while ensuring the plant extracts stay fresh longer. It also makes this perfect for travel and carrying around in the bag without worrying about spilling. The moisturizer is like a light runny lotion that smells really strongly of rose water. I am quite tolerant of fragrance in my skincare, so this isn't that much of an issue for me but could be for those with more sensitive noses.
Fast-absorbing and light, this moisturizer does a fabulous job of instantly soothing and hydrating dehydrated, dry skin without leaving it oily or greasy. That's the part that I like the most about this moisturizer - as a combination skin girl, I get quite frustrated by products that equate moisture to oil. Melvita's Nectar de Roses Moisturizer provides just the right amount of moisture, and it lasts the whole day without making my skin get oily or cause any breakouts. Overall, a fabulous product if not for the slightly strong fragrance and difficulty finding it in regular stores. You could always buy it online, though, from Melvita's website.
