In my recent beauty routine I’ve become pretty much minimalistic treating the skin of both face and my body with the amazing organic cold pressed coconut oil. I love its moisturizing, cleansing and regenerating effects. However, the oil is obviously not an ideal base to start with in the morning before you apply a foundation. Thus I was searching for a natural product with long lasting hydrating effects.
I came across MELVITA, an expert in organic beauty care and France’s leading ecological and organic beauty brand. When I saw they have a rose nectar edition, I knew that this is what I need to test (I absolutely love roses in all forms and also like to pick beauty products and fragrance with roses scent). I decided to try out the Melvita Nectar de Roses Hydrating Face Gel, a winner or a Cew Eco Beauty Award from 2013. With its 24-hour hydration effects, the product is aimed at a very dry skin using the rose floral water and the extract of fresh roses to supply the skin with constant hydration.
When I checked the product rather light milky consistency, I actually did not believe at first that this can properly moisturize my skin and my first idea was that I will probably have to use a bigger amount of this rose day cream with every application. With the first use, my skin literally drank the applied gel but already the next morning I could see that I need a smaller portion which means that this rose day cream moisturizes my skin well. Now, I’ve been using my Melvita Nectar de Roses gel for more than a month and I am still just half way through the 40ml package.
Every application is amazing for me cause besides the perfect sensitive skin treatment, it smells just fantastic. It’s like enjoying a morning walk in the garden full of briar roses.
