Melvita Moisture Replenishing Facial Gel

Want good basic, but not that basic , natural skincare? Melvita might be for you.

Melvita is a top French organic beauty company and most products are  EcoCert certified. Honey plays a big role in much of their line ( they even have delicious honey hard candies)  as the company was founded by a beekeeper in 1983.

New  though, is a line based on rose,one of my favorite things.  They have have  made the Rose Nectar Collection using a blend of many of the rose's extracts including rose hip oil and rose enfleurage.

All this means it's rather nice for your skin and a bonus, it smells lovely too.

I tried the Moisture Replenishing Facial Gel as it's geared towards normal to combo skin and that's me. It's a nice lightweight, refreshing  formula that is exactly what it says- a gel cream. It looks like cream , goes on like gel.  It has rice powder to help mattify  with rose floral water ( long known to be very good for skin) and rose seed milk for moisture.

It comes in a nice pump container to keep out contamination and is meant to be a  day cream.

The Replenishing Facial Gel has 99 % of ingredients as natural origin , 36 % from organic farming and is ECOCERT certified.  Retail is $ 37.00

Overall, Melvita seems to be a nicely priced, and nicely done natural skincare line .    Within the Rose Nectar line there are cleansers- creamy and micellar, as well as night cream and  drier skin day cream.

Find them at www.usa.melvita.com  and at their US stores in San Franciso, Newport Beach, CA and Seattle.
