I am completely new to the Melvita skincare, so I was excited when I saw invite to their press day showcasing the latest releases coming up in the next few months. Melvita is a French skincare brand founded in 1983 by biologist and beekeeper, Bernard Chevilliat. Taking bees and flowers heritage seriously, Melvita combines knowledge about nature and beauty to create numerous ranges from beauty oils, floral waters, nectar purs and something for a mother and a baby. Also, with every purchase you help the Melvita Foundation which is working to protect nature by promoting organic farming and safeguarding the future of the bees.
New Melvita Plumping Rose range coming up in June was designed to boost skin's radiance and reduce first wrinkles. It takes wild rose petals and an extract from the rose's vitamin rich fruit, rose hip. The hero product is definitely Plumping Radiance Duo* (RRP £25) - which has an incredibly gentle bi-phase formula combining skincare benefits of water and oil in one single product. You simply shake it, spray into the palm of the hand then gently massage over face and neck to smooth and plump skin. It is ideal as a preparation for day or night cream, or as a lighter alternative to facial oil for the summer months. The two other products in the range are Plumping Radiance Serum* (RRP £34) and Plumping Radiance Cream (RRP £30). Both are fighting the early signs of ageing leaving the skin plumped, radiant and moisturised.
Another Melvita range coming up in September is Bio-Excellence Naturalift. Consisting of Youthful Eye Contour, Youthful Day Cream*, Youthful Night Cream, Youthful Serum and Youthful Extraordinary Water this is a new anti-ageing collection that harnesses the powerful regenerating properties of organic buds. Melvita's patented bud complex of beech, pine, blackcurrant and raspberry plant extracts combine together to strengthen, firm and smooth the skin.
