The easiest part of your cleansing routine to forget is often the very end part. You’ve removed your makeup, you’ve cleansed and buffed the skin and then you go to tone… Is it worth it? What does it actually do? Can I face to use yet another product? This is actually a really important part of the routine as not only does it help to remove the last traces of impurities and product, but it helps to re-balance the skin and ensure it’s able to absorb moisture effectively. Toner is a really loosely used term, but we all generally get what it means and understand it’s part of the essential daily maintenance of skin. These two products from Melvita do that and more, providing a light final touch to skin while giving you a sneaky sniff of turkish delight.
Melvita is an organic brand, so there’s no harmful chemicals or alcohol which can work against skin or strip it of essential oils. The products both contain wild rose petal extract, which not only gives it an amazing scent, but also helps to rejuvinate and moisturise skin. The ‘fresh micellar water’ removes makeup, cleanses and tones all in one while targeting areas of the skin to provide the perfect amount of hydration where needed; you can use this on its own or after washing the face for an extra clean feeling. It doesn’t leave skin feeling tight or in need of extra moisturiser, but refreshed and healthy. If you’re a ‘no fuss’ kind of gal then this is perfect for you, making skincare very simple yet effective; you just need one swipe of this on cotton wool and you’re done.
The ‘rose extraordinary water‘ has become something of a cult product with those in the know. Its unique gel texture melts onto the skin to remove impurities, whilst firming and helping to contour the face. You can use this either before or after makeup – it’s somewhat a flexible product that just really helps to keep skin looking and feeling healthy. I’ve been using this before bedtime moisturiser, as well as after the shower to leave my skin feeling comfortable and ready for makeup. It’s a universal ‘must have’ that is almost as multi-tasking as vaseline… You’ll be discovering new uses for this and wondering how you ever lived without it. At £14.00 and £14.50 these are both reasonably priced, considering the purity of the ingredients and the size of the bottle. The brand is definitely on the rise in the UK, so grab a small part of France and get tres chic before anyone else.
