|Melvita Ultra Nourishing Body Balm|
This is another one of those products that's been sitting here for longer than I care to say and I can't figure out what took me so long to give it a try because it is SPECTACULAR! It is actually one of Melvita's best sellers and I totally understand why! Melvita Ultra-Nourishing Body Balm (MSRP $34 for 5.2 fl. oz) is one of the rare products that I've received for review but will come out of pocket to repurchase once it runs out.
According to the Mevita website, this luscious cream features "an innovative synergy of 3 honeys (Thyme, Acacia, Orange Blossom ) to provide exceptionally effective revitalizing care for dry and delicate skin. This rich, creamy, deliciously-scented body balm, ... helps to provide intensive nourishing care for very dry skin. It combines the amazing regenerating properties of Royal Jelly (the exclusive food of the Queen Bee) with nourishing Cocoa Butter and moisturizing Stevia leaf extract, to leave skin feeling incredibly soft and comfortable."
It smells light yet lovely and has a very unique texture that I love. My jar lives on my bedside table and it feels like absolute luxury to spread it on my parched skin before I go to sleep. It absorbs so quickly and works just as well on my hands, feet, knees and elbows as it does on the rest of my skin. I will admit that it leaves a bit of a finish that I like to view as a delicate sheen, that others may interpret as slightly greasy, but I promise you, if you suffer from dry skin, it leaves you feeling soft, smooth, and absolutely silky. This body balm is definitely one of my favorite products that I have had the pleasure of reviewing to date, and I will be going back for more! Until next time...
