Lovely oil face cleanser. Remove with a wet cloth. Melts makeup and leaves your skin clean and feeling comfortable.

Great day and night moisturizer. Comes in a pump bottle which ensures that the product stays hygienic and fresh throughout.

It comes in a cream like texture, however it is not heavy. It is lightly scented with rose, and comes with a pink tint. Like its name suggests, it does impart a soft glow to the skin upon usage, so this is definitely not the product for you if you have oily to very oily skin. I would not recommend this to acne-prone skin as well.

Infused with rose water and rosehip, this face cream is targetted to people with first signs of aging. With that, do expect a slightly heavier texture- this is not your lightweight gel type face moisturizer.

Another great product from Melvita!

I got a sample of this. It is a light moisturizing cream with a nice texture. It made my combination to oily skin shiny during the day so I used it as a night cream instead. It moisturizes well without being too heavy. Smells strong of roses so be careful if use you are sensitive. Good cream for everyday.

i have combination moving towards dry skin that used to be combination moving towards oily so i have been in a bit of a transition the past few years due to my age. i really like using this at night, on my face, neck and eye area. it's very moisturizing and fairly heavy at first but it sinks in nicely. the smell is a bit avocado-y as you'd expect, but it dissipates as well. i wake up to very soft skin using this oil. i'm sad our lone(?) U.S. melvita store closed down a couple years ago as i was really loving it and buying many products there. I am near the end of my bottle of avocado oil, the last thing i have from them, unfortunately. i hope melvita will come back to the U.S.!


Cleansers -Melvita -Rose Nectar Fresh Micellar Water

I love this stuff! Previously I was using LaRoche Posay's micellar, which was more drying. Although this has alcohol in it, I find that the glycerine compensates and my skin doesn't feel overly dry. I usually use this at the end of the day before exercise, so it's great for taking off my mineral makeup and mascara. It's also nice as an end of the day make up remover before using a gentle cleanser. I've noticed that my skin feels much cleaner, less likely to break out. Sometimes when I'm in a rush in the morning or if I haven't worn makeup that day, then I'll forego cleansing and just use a swipe of this. I love the natural rose aroma and the attractive bottle. Almost done with my 2nd bottle of this. It does not aggravate my rosacea or dry skin. Really very pleased with this product.

Very good product. Does what it says. It is very natural and soothing with arnica, and a subtle honey fragrance. It gives a sheer, natural sheen to lips and is also a great base for lipstick. Very moisturising. Product lasts for a good 6 months in the pot as you don't need to apply much and I find it keeps skin moisturised for a good few hours.


Skincare - Body -Melvita -Argan Oil

I bought this oil for heat protection for my hair. My hair is oily at the roots and frizzy at the ends. Its a decent oil but somehow I'm not too fond of it. On the hair, I cant figure out how much is the right qty. It always make my hair either too greasy or doesn't help with the frizz at all. It make my hair very soft when I oiled it at night as a treatment but at 20 Euros its too expensive for an overnight treatment.

I tried it on my face and it didn't break me out, so thats a good thing, but you really have to massage it in hard to get it to absorb. It leaves a bit of a sheen which gets absorbed by morning, but if you don't massage it well, you will find it covering your entire face like a greasy film. As a spot treatment, i dab a drop on cystic acne and rub a little. It helps with the pain and heals them quite fast. That's what the three stars are for.

Hate the packaging, a dropper type bottle is the best because you can take as per your preference. This pump usually dispenses too much so I end up rubbing the extras on my elbows or knees. Its a waste really.

I read many reviews of different Argan oils and people said look for the amber bottled ones with a dropper. I have no negative feelings about this oil but none that are glowingly positive either. I will not repurchase.

I've used rosehip oil for years but I'm quite new to argan oil. I've tried a few different brands. Melvita one although pricey is by far the best. I did some research prior to purchase and discovered that proper unrefined argan oil should be golden yellow, a bit cloudy with a nutty smell. This is exactly what Melvita Argan oil is (unlike some others I tried which were totally transparent, clear with no particular smell). This one is very well absorbed and leaves skin very soft and smooth. I put just a drop or two on top of rosehip oil and my skin loves it. Highly recommend!
EDIT: After about 7 days of using this oil on my face I developed contact dermatitis that has been taking well over three weeks to clear. It is really surprising that argan oil is recommended to treat eczema and rashes. Having conducted thorough research I discovered that many people react to argan oil. In fact many dermatologists state that reactions to argan oil are one of the primary reasons why they get new patients. I still strongly believe that this is one of the best argan oils around but if your skin is sensitive test it on a small patch first to see if this oil is suitable for your skin.

I usually use Neal's Yard Argan Oil for my night time moisturiser, but couldn't get any recently so bought this one instead. As Argan oils go it's okay, but for me it doesn't rival the Neal's Yard version at all. This has a very distinct scent which the Neal's Yard version doesn't have, and once it's warmed up on my face, it takes much longer to work in to my skin. In addition, I've noticed it still lingering in patches on my face in the morning, suggesting it's not sinking in as well as it perhaps could.

On a plus note, it's reasonably priced - £20.00 for 50ml (which is good for Argan oil) - and it's never made my skin react. The pump action glass bottle is also very good quality and dispenses just the right amount of product, but for me it's just not as good as the Neal's Yard version, which is what I'll be going back to once this is finished with.

I bought this product thinking it would be a gentle and effective way to take off makeup. Unfortunately I had an immediate allergic reaction to it! My face broke out in red splotches.
Please don't be under any illusions that natural skincare products are gentler, they aren't. I've since learned that many essential and fragranced oils and essences used in these products (not only Melvita, of course) are common allergens. Needless to say I won't buy again.

Skincare - Face -Melvita -Avocado Oil

For me, it feels a bit heavy and hard to absorb if only using this product alone on my eyes. I usually pour some Melvita's Field Cornflower floral water onto cotton pads along with a few drops of avocado oil and place these pads on my dark circles area for 15 minutes. Finally massage in circular motions.

To be honest, this is not the one you'd expect to fade your eye bags or erase dark circles. But what it does is to give an instant soothing effect for your puffy eyes and moisturise your eye areas. To your liking, you can also apply this oil on your neck area and elbows in the winter.


Toners -Melvita -witch hazel floral water

on 11/9/2015 12:49:00 PM

Melvita's floral waters sure are a treat, I've tried all of them and my favorites are the witch hazel and Rose floral waters.

Even though I've got combination / Oily skin, using this product everyday does have a tendency to dry my cheeks out. I also ought to mention that I do not use this as a toner. Instead, I use this as a face mist prior to using facial oils.

I used to spritz on Melvita's Lavender Floral Water when I'm suffering from breakouts but in recent years, I've discovered that the lavender floral water has become a tad harsh for my skin (woes of getting older!), hence I moved over to using the witch hazel floral water. I find this soothes my irritated skin, especially when I'm breaking out and it does help tone down the redness in my face ever so slightly.

I've recently switched over to using Thermal Sprays instead of essential oil-based face mists before using facial oils, but the Melvita Witch Hazel Floral Water will always stay on my vanity as I still reach out for it when those pesky zits come to visit.


Toners -Melvita -Rose Extraordinary Water

on 11/9/2015 12:39:00 PM

This is a hyaluronic acid-packed essence / toner / lotion. Its texture is more viscous than that of a regular toner, pretty similar to the "sticky" texture of La Mer's Treatment Lotion and Hada Labo's lotion.

I have tried most of these "waters", as Melvita puts it and I have to say this didn't break me out the way Hada Labo did (it really clogged my skin up), but it didn't hydrate the way La Mer's Treatment Lotion did either. It smells lovely, of roses but is this a must-have in your skincare routine? Personally, I do not see it as a necessity if you already incorporate a hydrating serum in your routine, but if you have really dehydrated skin and you are in need of a serious boost of hydration, I'd say go for the La Mer Treatment Lotion instead.

The La Mer Treatment Lotion is costly, but you do get more benefits in a larger bottle (150ml), and I only ever use two-three drops at a time - one bottle lasts me over 6 months.

The Melvita Rose Extraordinary Water, on the other hand, comes in a 100ml bottle, and I normally use this up within a month or so, as I find myself pouring out more product to get that nice, soothed and hydrated feel. I sure sound weird here but those with dehydrated skin would perhaps get what I mean. :)

In all, it isn't a bad product, I used to use this in the hotter months back in uni, but have since moved on to using La Mer's Treatment Lotion exclusively as this really does make my skin feel more comfortable and hydrated.
