Review: Melvita Bourbon Geranium Floral Water

16:21


Hey Beauties!

Melvita introduce me to the world of floral waters. They have a high range of floral waters to suit every need. Recently they added a new floral water to their range and I already tested it out for a few weeks.


Bourbon Geranium Floral Water is certified organic floral water. It's obtained through a steam distillation of fresh Pelargonium Graveolens Bourbon, which comes from rare culture in France. It is naturally rich in active ingredients and has delicate fragrance of Bourbon Geranium, which is similar to rose with spicy undertones. This floral water helps to refine pores and smooth skin texture. It refreshed, hydrates and tones the skin. 


It comes in a dark blue plastic bottle. The bottle is made out of 100% recycled and recyclable plastic material. I believe it's dark for a reason, to preserve the ingredients of the floral water. It contains 200 ml of product and costs 15.30€. You can buy it here or in any Melvita store. 


The ingredients list.


The spray pump works fine. It produces a very fine mist. You can't really control the amount that it comes out, but the mist is so fine that you can't overdue it. I usually spray about 3 to 4 pumps for my entire face and neck. When you spray it on it leaves drops of water on your face. It looks like you've been sweating, but it disappears into the skin.


The water is really refreshing, especially now in the summer days. I admit, I sometimes spritz it all over my face just for the sake of refreshment. It actually does hydrate the skin a little. Especially if you don't like to put much on your skin, since it can get really oily in the summer, this will act as some sort of a toning hydrating product. That being said, I like to use it instead of a toner, because if I'm being honest I don't really use the usual toners. This is great, especially because you can just spritz it and you're done. I also use it as a setting spray. I spray it all over my face, after I've done my makeup and it helps to make your make not look as powdery and more like it has settled into the skin.

This water makes my skin feel a bit smoother. It's not like you've made yourself a physical or chemical peeling, but the surface does seem smoother to the touch. I can't really say if my pores are looking any smaller or blurred, because I would probably need to use this for a longer period of time. It may make the appearance of them a bit less visible, but the difference is minimal. I have problems with enlarged pores, especially in the summer, so this might work better on someone with smaller pores in general.

The smell of it is very well, floral. To me it smells like if you've smelled a flower with a bit of spiciness mixed with it. I wouldn't say I'm crazy about the smell, because I usually avoid any kind of floral scents, but for some reason it doesn't bother me as much. I would say that the scent fades away really quickly, which is a plus for me.

I also need to address the fact that I find this floral water to be fine for slightly sensitive skin. I have in general sensitive skin and it didn't produce any irritations. I will say on days when my skin is really irritated, you might want to avoid it, because it may give you some red patches. I think this is due to the floral scent, which can aggravate sensitive skin a little. 

I've never really tried any of the floral waters before, but I seem to really like the refreshing feeling of it and the non fuss application that can replace your usual toner (if you use it). This is perfect for summer and for anyone that loves quick products for slight hydration with the benefits of an over all more beautiful skin with the use of longer period. 




Melvita mi je predstavila svet cvetnih vodic. Imajo velik nabor cvetnih vodic za vsakršno potrebo. Pred kratkim so k svoji liniji cvetnih vodic dodali novo in jaz sem jo že preizkušala približno dva tedna. 

Cvetna vodica burbonske geranije je pridobljena s parno destilacijo sveže zeli burbonske geranije, dragocene rastline iz zaščitene francoske pokrajine. Cvetna vodica je naravno bogata z aktivnimi sestavinami in pomaga zožiti pore in zgladiti teksturo kože za opazno lepšo polt. Tudi osveži, vlaži in tonira. Ima naravno nežno dišavo burbonske geranije, ki spominja na vrtnico z začimbnimi podtoni. 

Vodica se nahaja v temno modri plastični steklenici. Steklenica je narejana iz 100% reciklirane plastike, ki je primerna za reciklažo. Steklenica je verjetno temna z razlogom, da ohranja sestavine cvetne vodice. Vsebuje 200 ml izdelka in stane 15.30€. Kupite jo lahko tukaj ali v katerikoli Melvitini trgovini.  

Razpršilka ustvari fino meglico. Količine ni možno kontrolirati s pritiskom, vendar je meglica tako fina, da ne more nikoli biti preveč izdelka. Jaz po navadi uporabim 3 do 4 pritiske za celoten obraz in vrat. Ko si pošpricam vodico, na obrazu ostanejo kapljice vode kot bi se potili. Čez čas se vpijejo v kožo.

Vodica je zelo osvežilna, še posebej v teh vročih poletnih dneh. Priznam, včasih si jo našpricam samo zaradi tega, ker mi daje tak odličen osvežilen občutek. Vsekakor malo navlaži kožo. Še posebej v teh vročih dneh, če si neradi nanašate kreme in ostale izdelke, saj je lahko koža precej bolj mastna. Potem je ta vodica več kot odlična za rahlo hidratacijo z nemastnim občutkom na koži. Jaz jo rada uporabim namesto tonerja, ker če sem iskrena, klasičnega tonerja niti ne uporabljam. Ta vodica je tako enostavna, samo našpricam in lahko nadaljujem z ostalimi izdelki. Uporabljam ga tudi kot sprej za fiksiranje makeupa. Pošpricam ga po obrazu po tem ko končam z nanosom makeupa. Vodica naredi videz manj pudrast in bolj kot da so se ličila že zlila z mojo kožo in naravnimi olji. 

Trditev, da zgladi površino kože vsekakor drži. S tem ne mislim, da bo občutek enak kot če ste si nanesle fizičen ali kemičen piling, je pa površina kože vsekakor gladka na otip. Glede zmanjšanih ali zabluranih por ne morem povedati veliko, saj se mi zdi, da bi jo morala uporabljati dlje časa, da bi videla rezultate. Mogoče so pore res malo manj vidne, ampak razlika je minimalna. Jaz imam na sploh probleme s povečanimi porami, sploh poleti in dvomim, da bi lahko kak izdelek to zakril. 

Vonj je zelo cvetličen. Mene spominja na trenutek ko povoham rožico. V vonju se meša tudi vonj začimb. Ne bom rekla, da sem navdušena nad vonjem, ker na sploh ne maram svetličnih vonjev, vendar me iz nekega razloga ne moti preveč. Sam vonj kar hitro izhlapi in ne ostane na koži. 

Vodica se mi zdi v redu za rahlo občutljivo kožo. Jaz imam na sploh občutljivo kožo in vodica ni izzvala iritacij. Samo ob dnevih, ko je moja koža res ekstremno občutljiva, lahko dobim po uporabi kakšen rdeč madež. Zdi se mi, da je izvor iritacije v cvetličnem vonju. 

Nikoli prej nisem preizkusila nobene cvetne vodice. Najbolj všeč mi je osvežilen občutek in enostaven nanos, ki lahko zamenja navaden toner (če ga uporabljate). To je perfekten izdelek za poletje in vsakogar ki si želi hiter izdelek za hiter učinek nežne hidratacije z učinkom lepše polti skozi daljše obdobje uporabe.

    1. Jaz pa nikoli prej nisem uporabljala teh vodic. Ampak mi je res super namesto tonerja, ker je tako preprosto za uporabit. Še zvečer ko nimam za nič časa to pošpricam pa dobim vsaj malo vlage :)

  2. Super, ravno pred časom sem jo gledala v Mullerju in sem želela prebrat kakšno oceno, tako da mislim, da bo v prihodnje moja, ko porabim vodico, ki jo imam sedaj. Tudi pri meni del nege in sem se že tako navadla , da ne morem brez:) Imam precej suho kožo in malček vlage od kjerkoli ne škodi):):):)

  4. Super so!

    Meni je sicer tista z vonjem vrtnice boljša, ampak je pa res super ker se jo dobi tako veliko - da ti zadostuje vsaj za 6 mesecev, tudi če jo vsak dan uporabljaš! :)
