I have a normal but quite dehydrated skin and I’m mainly looking for products that can treat this concern. I’ve discovered accidentally this product some days ago in a para-pharmacy department at Monoprix while I was looking for Weleda shower creams. As we have a Melvita store in Paris decided to drop by the same day in order to have more information and why not buy it. Girls at Melvita are always charming and ready to assist you and they confirmed me that this product address my concern – dehydrated skin.

What I really like about the product is that it can be used in different ways, depending of what you’re looking for:
- Toner – after the cleansing regimen and before applying a day or night cream,
- Serum – before a day cream or used alone for night regimen to really treat dehydrated skin,
- Refreshing and cooling – placed in the fridge, applied all over the face and neck during the warm season.
Texture is thicker, I would say more like a gel than a floral water, so few drops will be enough to treat face and neck area.The texture makes the product really convenient as a little goes a long way and I would say a bottle will last you for at least 2 to 3 months on a double daily usage base.
None, not even the price… as it’s quite affordable for 100 ml container it costs around 14,5 €.
How to use
Applied after cleansing it tones and prepares the skin to receive the day time or night time treatment. Not being a big fan of creams for night treatment I’m just applying this water after cleansing and my skin is perfect. I’ve never used heavy and oily creams specially for night regimen, as I want to let my skin breath during the night and don’t intent to over suffocate it with a bunch of products. Skin regenerates over the night and a simple oil or just a natural serum (mixture of vegetable oils and essential oils) are just fine to bring all the elements to help the skin during its own regenerative processes.
I really love the light gel texture of this product, it’s easy to use and the Orange Blossom fragrance is really pleasant. I won’t say this is good alternative to a real serum as it isn’t, but I found it quite effective to really hydrate the skin. The product is really convenient as a little goes a long way and I would say a bottle will last you for at least 2 to 3 months on a double daily usage base.
For an average dehydrated skin this could be a good and natural solution to reestablish the hydration.
Summary: Really nice product to treat medium dehydration with an enjoyable fragrance…!
