Melvita have a few products in the ‘Apicosma’ range including face creams, cleansers and body treats and now a brand new Soothing face cream*. I love my Apicosma body cream, in fact I have nearly used it all up : It’s rich, super soothing and leaves my skin smelling and feeling absolutely gorgeous. The Apicosma range is all about ultra hydration and the key ingredient is honey and the same applies with this new comforting face cream.
The Apicosma Soothing cream is a cream designed for those times when your skin is feeling irritated, sensitive, red and weather-beaten. The patented 3-honey complex (used throughout this range) is repairing and soothing on all skins and promotes cell renewal whilst strengthening the skin’s cell barrier function. 90% of subjects found the skin to immediately feel soothed after application of this cream.
The three organic honeys include acacia, orange blossom & thyme ; rich in amino acids, glucose and fructose that deliver nutrients to the skin. Honey is also a natural anti-bacterial ingredient. Alpha-bisabol soothes and calms irritation. Sunflower oil and shea butter protect the skin’s hydrolipic film. There is a subtle and gorgeous scent of mint, orange blossom, and vanilla ; it reminds me of a really summery beach type smell.
Who should be using this?
From how it feels on my skin, and the ingredients, this is obviously tailored to a delicate, sensitive and maybe normal-dry skins. It feels wonderful and comfortable on my skin, and I have used it on mornings and evenings when I feel a bit tight and dry after cleansing. Also really lovely after those ‘heavy makeup’ days when you have had to double cleanse and it can leave your skin feeling a little vulnerable. This is the ultimate comfort cream. This is similar for me to something like REN hydra-calm, NUXE Reve de Miel face cream & Darphin soothing cream. A big plus for me is the pump packaging too ; makes for quick and hygienic application as opposed to tub-scooping & finger dipping.
