Melvita Moisturizing Rose Nectar

Melvita Moisturising Rose Nectar
Melvita Moisturizing Rose Nectar* - £24
Hey everyone. Hope you're all having a good week so far. The good news is we're nearly halfway through! I wanted to share a new love with you today in the form of Melvita Moisturizing Rose Nectar. It's basically a simple moisturiser. Any long time readers will probably know I hate rose scented anything, but this is quite mellow and it settles quickly on your skin so if like me, you hate the smell, don't fret as it soon goes!

The moisturiser itself is a tad thicker than my usual Nivea primer but as long as I leave an extra few minutes to settle before applying makeup, it's a great base for my foundation. The sample size is handy enough for travelling and the packaging is still really cute too. I was impressed, until I saw the price for the full size (£24). I go through moisturiser like it's nobody's business at the moment with my dry skin too. Using Simple and Nivea skincare is enough to combat my dermatitis and dehydrated skin (and much cheaper!). I wish beauty products weren't so expensive!

Rose floral water is one of the main ingredients in the Moisturizing Rose Nectar which I hadn't heard of up until then. Rose floral water acts as a direct source of hydration, while the extract of fresh roses helps to hold in the skin's natural moisture. Rose Nectar is 100% organic and provides up to 24 hour hydration - that's a big claim! You can read all about it on the feelunique site here. I'd recommend the Moisturizing Rose Nectar for anyone with dry/normal skin, unless you use it as a night cream, in which case all skin types should be fine with it if you add an extra layer or 2. I'm not completely sold to purchase it, but I like the fact that the ingredients are organic!

Have you tried Melvita Skincare? What's your favourite day moisturiser?
