Melvita Perfecting Cream

I want to share my experience with my brand new moisturizer – Melvita Perfecting Cream ($29).  Melvita offers certified organic skin care products and is the #1 certified organic beauty brand in France.  I’m trying to use more natural & organic skin care products as much as possible, just like with my diet.  Fewer chemicals mean less allergies and irritations.  Love that!  Going into sunny spring & summer, I wanted a moisturizer that is light while improving my overall complexion.  Melvita Perfecting Cream is just what the Dr. ordered.

Melvita Perfecting Cream

“This light, repairing cream is a technically sophisticated care product that offers oily and combination skins greater radiance, comfort and protection.”

Organic!  Yay!

Light cream for oily & combination skin… I like that.
Packed full of healthy stuff.  I see my favorite ingredient – green tea!

Don’t forget to check the expiration date.
This baby will be long gone before the date showing.

Fits nicely in the palm of your hand.

The cap provides extra protection
and keeps it from accidentally leaking while traveling.

Hassle-free, airtight pump dispenser.  Keeps the air away!

Has a green tint to it.  It’s actually slightly darker in person.

Lightweight with a perfect consistency.
Spreads easily and a little goes a long way.

Right after the application.  Soaks right into the skin.
No greasy residue whatsoever!

There is a noticeable difference with how my skin felt after the application –
soft & supple!  Looks shiny but it actually has a mattifying effect.

So, I’ve been using this cream for just about a week now. 
Here is the verdict.

Design – Love the vivid green and floral packaging.
Easy to hold and carry.  The cap keeps it clean-looking.
Love the airless pump dispenser!

Price – Comparable to other organic products.

Quality – I don’t use this cream just for moisturizing purposes but rather to feed my face with healthy nutrients.  It’s like an organic smoothie for the skin!  Very light without being greasy or sticky.  Not super moisturizing yet it doesn’t pull my skin like other combination lotions I have used.  Plus, it doesn’t leave my face shiny which is a must!  Also the soothing scent makes me crave for it even more.  Haven’t noticed the radiant effect… yet.

Perhaps not the best cream for dry skin but fantastic for oily combination skin by keeping the face looking matte & dewy for hours.  Best of all, no breakouts or any irritations so far.  Works well under other topical or makeup.  I layer on this first and apply another lotion on top if I need more hydration.  I find this cream so refreshing especially for spring & summer.
