If you’ve been following my Beauty feeds, you already know I have quite an obsession with organic skincare products. Although we are spoilt for choice as Dubai dwellers when it comes to retail therapy, there seems to be a dearth of high-quality organic skincare brands, most of which are accompanied with hefty price tags.
Well I have some good news for you… We now have a brand new online store that does the dirty work for us, and curates an ever-changing list of natural and organic beauty must-haves from every corner of the globe. Aptly named Green Chic, you are bound to find something for every skin-type and budget on this site: www.greenchicme.com
Green Chic was kind enough to send me a couple of beauty goodies, both brands being new to me. Today I want to share my thoughts on the Melvita Pulpe De Rose Plumping Radiance Duo with you.
Melvita is an organic skincare brand from France. Despite preaching organic beauty and coming from the capital of all things fashionably chic, the Melvita range is surprisingly affordable. This 50ml bottle retails for AED 125 on greenchicme.com
What is the Melvita Plumping Radiance Duo?
“Enriched with wild rose fruit, this duo of rose floral water and rose hip oil helps to smooth and plump the skin. The complexion is more radiant for 87% of women (Consumer test under dermatological supervision on 31 women over 4 weeks).” – Melvita.com
Combining the formulation of oil and water into one, this delightfully fragrant serum bottles up the benefits of rose into one seamlessly compact spritz bottle.
- Rose Hip Oil: Known for its regenerating, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties.
- Damask Rose Water: Revitalizes and refreshes.
How to use the Melvita Plumping Radiance Duo:
As the formulation is made of oil and water, the product has a two-phase composition that needs to be thoroughly shaken up together before use. When shaken well, the product takes on a bubbled-up, milk-like hue. This is when you need to spritz one to two pumps onto your palms, and apply onto your clean, dry face.
Tezzy’s Experience with the Melvita Plumping Radiance Duo:
First off, I love the packaging! I love beauty products that come in glass bottles. They are far more hygienic and classy. Secondly, this comes with a spritz application, making application super easy.
My skin-type varies between normal to combination, and although I love using essential oils on my skin, I tend to get a tad cynical when it comes to the icky-sticky summer months. My skin has a tendency of breaking out, and the past month of fasting has left me rather parched.
However, given this product is water-based, it doesn’t have the oily after-feel I was dreading. Infact, my skin just laps it up rather greedily. I’ve been using it as a serum under my regular moisturizer, but soon stopped applying it in the mornings as it doesn’t sit too well under makeup. I have reserved it for my night-time ritual, and this seems to be working wonders for me.
I don’t even need two spritz, just one spray is enough for my face right before my night cream. I love the subtle hint of rose; it is so dreamy feminine and perfectly apt for ending a long day.
Two weeks on, and my skin looks and feels visibly plumper, refreshed and aglow. There is nothing else I have changed in my beauty regime, so all credit goes to the Melvita Plumping Radiance Duo, a real miracle in a bottle!
A little goes a long way, and best of all it is so very affordable!
Why I LOVE the Melvita Plumping Radiance Duo:
- It’s organic beauty sans any chemical nasties!
- It smells amazing! It has a subtle hint of rose that isn’t overbearingly powerful. So feminine!
- The water-based formulation ensures the product is anything but greasy.
- The product is super easy to use.
- It leaves the skin feeling very hydrated, refreshed and glowing. Definitely lives up to its promise!
