Organic, Multi-Purpose Dry Oil? Melvita Extraordinary Oil


Having dry skin, oils are a necessity in my skin regime. Oils are not only beneficial for dry skintypes but also a lovely addition for all skin types. Multi-purpose oils are around in cosmetic industry for quite some time by now. Leaving a non-greasy, satiny feel, they come out as a perfect product for face, body and hair. Being a huge fan of Nuxe Multi-usage Dry Oil (review here), I was thrilled to try out a natural, organic version by Melvita. Satin/dry texture, competitive price point, made in France, 5 precious oils and Ecocert organic certification? Sounds like an organic dream come true.

Ker imam suho kožo, so olja nujen del negovanja kože. Olja na splošno niso odlična le za suho kožo, ampak nepogrešljiva za vse ostale tipe kože. Večnamenska olja so v kozmetični industriji že stalnica. S satenasto teksturo so odlični izdelki za vse dele telesa - obraz, telo in celo lase. Sama sem velika oboževalka Nuxe Multi-Usage suhega olja, zakar sem bila navdušena nad odkritjem bolj naravne, organske verzije od Melvite. Suha tekstura, konkurenčna cena, francoske korenine, 5 dragocenih olj in Ecocert organski certifikat? Sliši se kot uresničene organske sanje.


Melvita L'Or Bio Extraordinary Oil has all the basic components I'm searching in dry oil. Texture is obviously oily at first, but transforms into velvety dry finish once applied. It's non-sticky, absorbs quickly and leaves no obvious residue. Perfect score. While I enjoy scented oils for my body, Extraordinary oil has quite a noticeable fragrance. It's not too overpowering but you can definitely spot it's sweet nutty scent on first sniff. Yet, it's not disturbing or irritating applied as a face oil. It's subtle yet noticeable. Personally, I use it as a face oil, rather than body or hair oil. In my eyes, it's too luxurious and precious to waste it on my body. And body oils & butters do a nice job anyway. For elbows and knees, this is a great little treat. As with my fine hair, oil seems to be a bit too hefty for every day. For ingredients, there are 5 different oils mentioned. Argan oil for soft skin, while extravagant Kendi oil and Inca inchi oil serve for protection and balanced skin layers. Buriti Oil has a lot of beta-carotene and oleic acid for indepth nourishing and antioxidant protection. Pracaxi Oil is supposedly beneficial for shiny and soft hair. While I'm not familiar with most ingredients, I can't say much. I do know though, I'm in love with this oil due to dry texture, nourishing properties and organic ingredients. Melvita Extraordinary Oil also has a practical pump for disposing oil into your hands or specific areas.

Melvita L'Or Bio Extraordinary Oil ali Izjemno Zlato Olje ima vse potrebne komponente za popolno suho olje. Tekstura je na začetku oljnata, vendar se preobrazi v žametno suho teksturo ko olje nanesemo na kožo. Koža se ne lepi, olje je vskrano v minuti in ne pušča mastnih sledi. Odlična ocena že na tem mestu. Poleg vsega ima olje dokaj sladek vonj po oreščkih, kar pa je lahko dobra ali slaba stran produkta, odvisno od Vaših zahtev. Vonj je subtilen. Osebno uporabljam olje predvsem za obraz, komolce in kolena. Olje sicer ni pregosto, vendar lahko zmasti moje dokaj tanke lase. Olje tako zajema 5 različnih dragocenih olj. Arganovo olje, ki ga vsi predobro poznamo, je odlično za mehčanje kože. Eksotično Buritijevo olje in Inca inchi poskrbita za globinsko hranjenje kože in uravnovešene plasti kože. Olje Kendi in Pracaxijevo olje sta odlična za zaščito in mehke lase. In ker nisem ravno ekspert za sestavine, vem le to, da imam odlične prve vtise s tem oljem. Izjemno zlato olje ima prav tako pumpico z razpršilom za lažji nanos. 



All in all, I'm delighted to spot such a beauty gem in one of the best organic french skincare brands. It does everything I want from my multipurpose oil and more. Negative aspects? Price point could be a downside along with sweet nutty scent. Melvita, as an extremely appreciated brand in France, has to offer loads of good quality products and more. Fascinated with their Extraordinary Water in the past, I'm likely to be trying a product or two. The variety of oils, Floral waters and Extraordinary Waters makes them stand out, along with Ecocert certification and quality. This oil might just replace my old faithful Nuxe Multi-Usage Dry Oil. L'Or Bio Extraordinary Oil retails for around 32,50€ (100ml). You can discover Melvita here and also buy from FeelUnique

Če povzamem, sem presenečena nad novim odkritjem. Melvita kot ena izmed najbolj cenjenih francoskih znamk, me je presenetila s kvaliteto in sestavinami. V preteklosti sem preizkusila tudi odlične Cvetne vodice, ki jih priporočam. Več kot 13 hladno stiskanih olj navdušuje, zato so vredni pozornosti. Najde se olje prav za vsak problem in tip kože. Negativne strani Izjemnega zlatega olja? Poleg višje cene lahko v razmislek vzamete sladek vonj. Mislim, da bo Izjemno zlato olje odličen organski nadomestek mojega Nuxe olja. Izjemno zlato olje ima ceno 32,50€ za 100ml. Melvita se nahaja v Ljubljani in Mariboru, prav tako pa se lahko naroča preko spletne strani tukaj.

    1. Diši, ampak mogoče za koga preveč. Hm, verjetno je kar risky za obraz. Pri meni ni problema, ga pa ne nanašam več kot 2-3x na teden :)
