Melvita are well known for their beauty oils and this newest offering is simply gorgeous. The Rose+ Face care oil (£32 for 30 mls) Is currently exclusive to Marks and Spencers, so you won’t find it on the Melvita site. It is great to see M&S bringing brands like Melvita to the high street and their beauty departments are going from strength to strength, so this is a fantastic pairing in my opinion.
Rose+ reminds me a little of the Melvita Argan+ which is one of all time favourites from the brand. What Melvita do so well is make beauty an absolute pleasure, this oil is almost serum like in it’s silkiness but without the silicones used by other brands. Designed for first signs of ageing, I actually think this would be a great first oil for all skin types. Like most oils it is versatile in ways in which you can use it, I have added it to clay masks, moisturisers both day and night (goes really well with the Rose Nectar range!) as a standalone treatment, especially nice used before bed as you wake up to nice soft plump skin in the morning.
Melvita had added algae and rosehip as well as Neolastine for the anti-ageing benefits to what is essentially a very light blend of other carrier oils. Melvita say that the oil will reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but I would use more as a preventative product rather than to treat. I find you get the benefits of a face oil without some of the heaviness other blends can bring, however if you are looking for something with lot’s of different oils, this perhaps won’t be for you. The scent is very interesting, not so much pure rose as a sweet almost desert like aroma, pleasant on the senses without a doubt.
Another lovely offering from what is a very solid brand, certified by Cosmebio and with Melvita’s commitment to natural and sustainable ingredients. Head over to the Melvita website if you want to see more of the range.
