Melvita Eau Florale de Rose

12 Feb

I miss you. I miss us. I miss what this was becoming, before I birthed a child who now consumes my every waking moment. I think it might be different if he didn’t have colic that keeps us both awake every. single. night. between 1am and 8am. But I don’t know. I guess only time will tell.

In the meantime…

BAM, Melvita Rose Floral Water, or Eau Florale de Rose if you want to be all Frenchy about it.

I started using this stuff at the end of my pregnancy when I was getting night sweats. I would spritz it all over my face and it made me feel a little fresher and less sticky in the middle of the night. Then, after baby, I was doing a lot of crying because of the situation, and my skin started to show it. Really dull, breaking out, etc. I started spritzing this on and letting it dry after washing but before moisturizing. It really made all the difference. My skin resumed its glowy-ness, pimples first became less red and then disappeared, and my skin seemed overall healthier. Totally non-drying, smells lovely, feels great, and a $22 bottle will last forever.

Really recommend this stuff as a sort of cure-all for winter- or hormone-ravaged skin. Well done, Melvita. Well. Done.
