Melvita Rose Micellar Water and Moisturizing Nectar

Two of my favourite beauty things in one product: roses and micellar water. It’s almost too much to comprehend, but there it is, a rose micellar water. What genius lies within Melvita HQ? The very same who brought us the Extraordinary Waters? Perhaps.

This 3-in-1 cleansing water is utterly gorgeous – really gentle on the skin (because some of these Micellar cleansers, weirdly, aren’t) and pretty effective. I would never use a micellar water for a “proper” cleanse – it’s brilliant for a quickie, so to speak, but if you’re removing tonnes of makeup then you need to be using a rinse-off cleanser. (Just my opinion – some people get on well with wet-wipes and waters and the such, but my skin plays up if it doesn’t get a proper cleanse!) I have this Eau Fraiche Micellaire on my desk and use it throughout the day if I’m testing bits and bobs out. I also use it as a fresh cleanse in the morning, and you can sweep it on after your main cleanse if you like the cool feeling of a toner.

Onwards to the Nectar de Roses moisturizing nectar – again, beautiful scent. The texture is lovely and I find that I’m reaching for this quite frequently as a before-makeup hydrator. It gives long-lasting hydration but isn’t too rich and certainly isn’t greasy. It’s possibly not ideal for combination-oily skins, more suited to dry, but I find that I can easily get away with it during the day. It gives a smooth, plump base for foundation or BB Cream or whatever it is that you want to follow up with. Beautiful. It reminds me a lot of the texture of the Naturalift, the review for which seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth! Or off the face of A Model Recommends at any rate. I’ll have to re-review it, because it’s a really nice day cream. This Nectar de Roses feels just like a rose-scented version of that cream, though I’m sure it has different properties and ingredients.

Fresh Micellar Water is £14.50 and the Moisturiser is £24, both from Melvita, or the moisturiser can also be found with free worldwide delivery at FeelUnique.com

  1. sounds great- a bt similar to the Nuxe rose range?
    Im actually really annoyed that Melvita have discontinued some of their products! They used to do an amazing Apicosma cleansing jelly but it seems to have disappeared off the UK webiste :(

    Ok, but someone, somewhere must succeed in this, because I read a few times that they are supposed to be adequate cleansers. Would work for people who wear only a breeze of powder and a whiff of mascara, I suppose.
    Thanks Ruth :-)

    • Well, yes, but still, I think that it’s good to rinse off the skin once in a while. The micellar’s aren’t being rinsed off, so I wouldn’t use them day in, day out! x
