Am I in love with Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water?


What’s my verdict? Unless you hate rose scent, you’ll find it hard not to love this floral water. It was unmistakenly, love at first spritz for me and then head over heels after that! So I had no issue swiping my card for this mere floral water that comes with a luxe price tag. Why? The smell of sweet rose is simply divine and I feel so refreshed and uplifted each time I use this. It isn’t overpowering for me and I definitely don’t feel like fainting after each use. LOL.

However, I am not sure what it does for my skin other than hydration although I noted that this is particularly suitable for sensitive skin and so those with such skin conditions may see a more significant difference. Perhaps I can tell a more marked difference after some bottles?

Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water is definitely not a necessity but if you love rose scent like me, you should at least try it at some point. It’s probably the best floral water I’ve tried and I’m not exaggerating. Yes, it’s a splurge but definitely a nice splurge to pamper your skin and maybe, your soul too.

Oh, I received a sample of the Melvita Orange Blossom Floral Water too which does the same thing as Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water. It is supposed to help prevent the appearance of dark spots and naturally brighten the skin—something more suitable for my skin needs. However, the orange floral scent, while pleasant, just isn’t as inviting so I actually gave up using it after a few spritz.

Melvita Fresh Cleansing Milk | 200ml, HK200, u00a316.00 or RM118
I started out using Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water and so my expectations were inevitably up when I finally began using the Melvita Fresh Cleansing Milk. I was hoping for that WOW feeling but alas, it was not meant to be.

This is a light cleansing milk that reminds me of Logona Organic Rose & Aloe Cleansing Milk. It is a light lotion and comes with a very light rosehip scent. It’s supposed to cleanse the skin and even remove face and eye makeup without any drying effects.

However, I found the instructions rather odd. I’m supposed to apply Melvita Fresh Cleansing Milk to my face and eyes with a cotton pad, follow with a mist of rose foral water to tone and refresh the skin. But how is this able to cleanse my skin well especially if I’m using this at the end of the day?

So I don’t follow the instructions. Instead, like the Logona one, I use this as a pre-cleanse to remove my makeup or sunscreen before finishing off with a foam cleanser. But because this cleansing milk is so watery, it does work better with a cotton pad. Still, I didn’t feel I can cleanse my face that thoroughly using this alone. Perhaps it can cleanse on a relatively clean face during the morning but I’m not convinced this alone does a good job on a face full of makeup.

But as I continued to use this, I grew to like it a bit more. At least I found the rosehip scent comforting. However, it is probably not a product I would repurchase unless it is a lot cheaper.

Limited availability a bane
So am I in a love relationship with Melvita or not? Well, yes for now because I’m still using the products but I’m also afraid to say that the love relationship is coming to an end quite soon. You see, I have no confidence in maintaining a long distance relationship. It’s too taxing on my time and my wallet. I might be willing to extend the relationship with Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water but I doubt I have the passion to sustain it.

In reality, Melvita just has too many competitors vying for my attention. So just too bad the brand is not physically available in Singapore as adding on the shipping cost from Malaysia doesn’t make my purchase too worthwhile. I might shop from Naturisimo in UK since I can get free shipping but then again, I’m half-hearted because I don’t believe a girl has got to do the courting in a relationship. I’ll tell you honestly—I can be madly in love with a product but once it is out of sight, it is out of my mind.

    That’s so true, out of sight, out of mind. Melvita is a brand that I’ve came across on the internet and it definitely spiked some interest in me, due to the accessibility of the brand, it was all the way down my list to try ? unless I’ve a chance to transit in HK or Malaysia to grab them in between my travels.

    I’ve enjoyed using the logona cleansing milk though, due to my odd skin breaking out yet I can’t use foam cleansers. Thanks for the awesome review!

    You know, it’s available here and online, and I still have a love-hate relationship with the brand! I do like the Rose water but it only works to give that short burst of hydration and rose scent and honestly, it’s just too expensive to sustain over the long run. There are more affordable options and I found one on iherb ? Everything else I’ve tried just doesn’t give me the results I’m expecting so the brand has eventually fallen off my radar. As you said, it’s a decent enough brand, but the price point isn’t friendly enough, and it lacks that attraction especially when I find the products fairly mediocre.

    You like Logona? I don’t mind it but I’ve not repurchased the product since my last usage.

    Pity that the brand didn’t do much for you. Their Damask Rose Floral Water is truly awesome–it’s such a feel good product. I’m not sure if I can get the same level of satisfaction with others.
