Melvita Extraordinary Rose Water

And extraordinary it truly is!

Official info:

This skin prep lotion is not extraordinary for no reason… Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid from soya and Organic Glycerine to lock in moisture, you will love its unusual gel texture.

Rich in Rose Essential Water, this delicately scented formula combines the anti-aging and rejuvenating properties of Rose Floral Water with the firming properties of Marsh Clover. Marsh Clover or Water Clover is proven to firm the skin and improve the oval contour of the face.

I received a sample size of this in  Melvita store while purchasing one of  my staples, Rose Floral Water (which I use mostly  for Lebanese desserts :D).  I fell in love after the very first application… Extremely smooth gel-like texture (I wouldn’t describe it as ”water”!) which sinks in quickly leaving the softest skin ever! It contains Hyaluronic Acid that  makes those tiny wrinkles disappear by plumping the skin noticeably. I use it every morning after washing and toning and before moisturizing. If you’re like me and  happen to like the smell of roses, even better! 😉  When it comes to the brand, Melvita can be described as a less commercial and thus more affordable L’Occitane and definitely closer to pure organic cosmetics with all products meeting the criteria of the strict ECOCERT Ecological and Organic Cosmetics standards and of the Cosmébio label.

I’d say this would make for a high-quality first anti-aging serum for those 20-to -35-year-olds whose skin is in good condition per se.

It’s a real bargain at around 15€/25$/14 £ per 100 ml.

TIP:  Skip cotton pads and use your fingers for application instead – lightly massaging a few drops of Extraordinary Water into the face and neck area. Wait a few minutes and follow with your regular moisturizer.

Would I repurchase? Definitely.



Cheap solution to cellulite reduction…

a very short one today…As I have received some questions about my previous post on L’Occitane and cheaper yet effective solutions to cellulite, here is one great dupe: EVELINE! Great, affordable cellulite fighters!



cca 70 pounds (Firming massager included)

EVELINE   products = 5.31 – 12.49 pounds

Have you tried these? Any thoughts?


A cellulite cream that really works

It doesn’t erase it. No cream does. But it does work wonders to the extent any topically applied thing can. So, what’s so special about this one?
Well, for starters, it’s not one but two:

For my opinion, read on…

I don’t know about resculpting but would agree on the firming part.  Smells fresh, feels fresh… been using it for 5 weeks –  once a day after showering. Great for massaging with L’Occitane‘s Firming Massager!

Unfortunately this almond beauty isn’t enough… For a serious attack on that ugly orange peel syndrome you’ll need one more pricey beauty:

What L’Occitane says:

Almond beautiful shape

Opinion of my unbiased bum and thighs:

This really works, especially used in combo with the aforementioned Shaping Delight and the Firming Massager.The key is to vigorously massage cellulite-prone areas twice a day for few minutes.

It might be used as an intensive treatment over a period of 4-6 weeks alternating between the 2 products, one in the morning and the other in the evening.  Yes, a rather pricey solution but at least it does what it claims.  Finally!

Worth repurchasing? HELL YEAH!
