Melvita Organic Skincare

January 27, 2016

Melvita is an organic beauty brand owned by the L’Occitane Group, to which L’Occitane as a brand you might be more familiar with. I am such a champion of organic skincare at the moment, I dabble in both organic and non organic and can see results from both, but with my sensitive skin, the organic ranges can really work wonders for me.

Never having tried anything from Melvita before, I tested out some of their hero products.

Melvita Nectar Lip Balm Review

Melvita Nectar Balm £10

This little pot of wonder as Melvita describe it, is ideal for dry chapped lips and includes a 3 honey complex, including Thyme, Orange Blossom and Acacia Honey to revitalise and repair dry areas. Arnica extracts soothe and shea butter and coconut oil nourish and protect. It’s multi-purpose so not just for your lips, it can be used on cuticles, dry skin and the ends of your hair. It has a honey scent and is ideal to pop in your handbag. I loved this lip balm, it really seemed to nourish. I avoid any lip balms that have Petrolatum in them (basically Vaseline) as they just don’t help your lips at all, yes they might give relief but in the long wrong something like this is much more beneficial. From a sufferer of dry lips on a daily basis, this one gets a thumbs up from me.

Melvita L’Or Bio Oil £15

I am loving anything oil at the moment, whether it is a facial cleansing oil or a night oil, but body oils are a must for me too. Melvita’s oil contains five rare and precious oils that work together to nourish and repair the skin. Kendi Oil, Argan Oil and Inca Inchi Oil are great for the body and help strengthen the skin’s barrier function, soften and nourish. Buriti Oil is good for the face and is rich in antioxidants and oleic acid helps to maintain the skin’s elasticity and suppleness (add a few drop to your usual moisturiser). Whilst finally Pracaxi Oil is fab for hair and can protect against humidity and adds shine. You can also apply a few drops to your bath water for a nice relaxing bath. The bigger version comes in a spray which would be really handy as I find when you pour it in your hands it sort of goes everywhere, so I’d definitely opt for that one.

Damask Rose Floral Water £15

As well as oils, I am loving rose-water. For someone who has dehydrated and dry skin these two are perfect.  Rose floral water is ideal to revitalize skin that is dehydrated, it just gives an instant boost. I like to use it in place of my toner or throughout the day for a hydration boost. This one really feels and smells like pure rose-water and I loved it!

Gentle Cleansing Jelly £15

Melvita’s cleansing jelly combines rose floral water and orange blossom water to create a foaming gel. I must admit I avoid all foaming cleansers as I have sensitive and dry skin but this one has such gentle ingredients and hydrating properties that it worked well for me. It’s formulated with a prebiotic which protects the skin’s ecosystem and left my skin feeling soft afterwards, as well as removing make-up well.

I enjoyed using the Melvita products, I think they are moderately priced and very effective for an organic skincare line. To check out the range visit uk.melvita.com.
