Smoothing and Firming care - Hibiscus Seeds, Camelina, Beech buds
Naturalift® Youthful Skin Cream is the ONLY certified organic moisturiser to win an AWARD in the new Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible in the Anti-Ageing Miracle Cream category.
This youth-restoring cream softens lines and wrinkles and has an immediate smoothing effect on the skin. The highly moisturising extract of wild Beech buds, rich in flavonoids and polyphenols, energises the skin’s microrelief, whilst the oligopeptides in the Hibiscus seeds help to reduce the appearance of expression lines.
Feel the difference on your skin with the immediate tightening, firming effect from the Argan nut proteins. Combined with vitamin and mineral-richChestnut, Camelina and Saflower oils, the Alpine buddleia works as a powerful anti-free radical. The juice of a New Zealand fern, Mamaku, revitalises the skin and fights against skin ageing, making this ‘wonder cream’ the star product of any skincare routine.
With its pleasant, light texture, this certified organic cream leaves the skin looking soft, supple and smooth, with a subtle scent of Rosewood and Geranium.

Directions

Apply a small amount of cream to face and neck, morning and evening, after cleansing thoroughly.
Melvita Beauty Tip: For greater moisturising action (for Dry skin), revitalising action (for Sensitive skin) or rebalancing action (for Combination skin) combine the product with the Quintessential Oil specific to your skin type. This extra treatment is particularly effective for restoring skin overnight.

Natural and light

From my very first use i was pleased the scent was nice and natural and the texture of the cream was silky and light it absorbed into my skin instantly which left it feeling smooth and hydrated i really loved this my skin has been so smooth and nourished since ive been using this although i wouldnt say it tightened and firmed my skin in any way.

May not smell rosy but made my skin look brighter


I was lucky enough to be selected to trial this cream for Beautyontrial and was thrilled to bits to receive a full sized pump container so I really can get a good trial from it. I have now been using it just over two weeks and feel that it has given me enough time to give me views.

A BIT ABOUT MELVITA
This is a French company that has been working with organic natural ingredients and creating beauty products since 1983.

The company do not test on animals and create their products using natural organic ingredients certified by ECOCERT and according to the box 99.31% of the total ingredients in this are from natural origin and 29.91% are from organic farming. They also believe in using fair-trade ingredients where available too.
What is really great news for the company and of course for us as purchasers of this is that Naturalift® Youthful Skin Cream is the ONLY certified organic moisturiser to win an AWARD in the new Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible in the Anti-Ageing Miracle Cream category.

WHAT DO YOU GET AND HOW MUCH?
My pot is the full sized pump bottle which holds 50ml and the price from the website is £32 which is not cheap but when you consider the company ethics and compare it to similar natural products it is about average.

MY EXPERIENCE
The pump is very efficient and I found it easy to squeeze varying amounts according to my needs at the time. Often this is not the case and you either get far too much or not enough so that was useful for me. The container is hard plastic so no danger of breakages if accidently dropped either and then you can recycle it wherever you recycle your plastics.

The cream is very light and is absorbed very quickly into my face leaving it feeling cool and much tighter instantly. It also feels well moisturized too with no greasy feeling at all to my skin. The instructions tell you to apply a small amount of cream to face and neck, morning and evening, after cleansing thoroughly. This I did religiously for the last few weeks and I do think my skin is looking a bit more youthful, tighter and firmer in the places where it had been a little tired and sagging. This is designed and sold as a ‘youth-restoring cream ‘ and I really did find it softened the lines around my mouth ( laughter lines) and those on my forehead have also become less obvious. My skin feels all round much tighter and smoother and it does work almost straight away. I notice it especially in the morning as I out this on then have my breakfast before adding any make up and in that short time it seem to have woken my skin uo and made it look more youthful.
On the box it also gives you the extra tip which does require you to spend a bit more on their site and that is :

“ For greater moisturising action (for Dry skin), revitalising action (for Sensitive skin) or rebalancing action (for Combination skin) combine the product with the Quintessential Oil specific to your skin type. This extra treatment is particularly effective for restoring skin overnight.”
I can’t give you any feedback on that advice as I have not bought the appropriate serum from Melvita personally.

I do find the smell a little odd. It sort of smells slightly like lemon but with a slightly house cleaning product sort of addition. I can’t quite put my finger on what it is but let’s put it this way I would not choose to have the scent created into a perfume to wear! Melvita say it has a subtle scent of Rosewood and Geranium but I can’t say that I can detect rosewood which is lovely as a scent nor can I detect geranium certainly not a scented geranium but it is not bought for its smell so I won’t down grade it on that score..

HOW DOES THIS WORK?
The extract of wild Beech buds are rich in flavonoids and polyphenols and as well as being great at moisturising, they also help to energise the skin..
The Hibiscus seeds apparently have oligopeptides which are said to be the ingredient that helps to reduce the appearance of those nasty laughter and frown lines.
Argan nut proteins are the ingredient that works on firming and tightening and is the magic ingredient of the moment as you fing Argan oil in so many beauty products these days.
Chestnut, Camelina and Saflower oils are all full of rich oils containing vitamins and minerals beneficial to skin.

Alpine buddleia works as a powerful anti-free radical to get rid of allthe nasties we absord in just living day to day in our world
The juice of the New Zealand fern, Mamaku is there to fight the aging of the skin and to revitalize it and make the skin on our face look more youthful.
Also in this cream we find water so essential for rehydrating the skin. Incidentally drinking lots of water is also very beneficial for our skin and what is even better is that it is free!


RECOMMENDED?
Yes indeed. It is not the instant face lift in a bottle that we all wish for but it does a very good job. It makes my face skin feel less old and certainly gives it a bit of a lift and extra firmness. The lines and wrinkles are sadly still there but they look less obvious and my face somehow looks brighter so I am very happy with the results. It is certainly a brand I shall be looking out for in the future as I admire their ethics and feel that this is the way we should be going with our beauty products. Beauty without cruelty should be the motto for all in my view.

The cream is gentle and effective. I have had no allergic reaction from using this and it makes me happy to know no animal suffered in its creation either. I am not that fussed by the smell of this one but as a tightening and firming face cream it does a good job.

Strongest points
Pleasant scent, good hydration, natural ingredients, pump action dispenser, suitable for sensitive skin.
Weakest points
Absorbtion takes a few minutes, more expensive than family products, not widely available.
Summary
This light-to-mid textured cream has a delightful scent making it a pleasure to use, and which relaxes and pampers the user. The pump is an effective dispenser for regulating the quantity and speed of use. The product is easily applied to skin, and moisurises deeply, however absorbtion takes a few minutes. I found it best to leave a few minutes before applying SPF as my skin felt a little moist, even with a small amount of product. Skin felt hydrated over several hours after application and the product did not cause any difficulties with eczema prone skin.

A Wonderful Defence Against The Ageing Process

I have become an ardent fan of Melvita products and I was really excited to trial this new face product, especially as my skin is starting to show the signs of ageing and I am always looking for a natural ingredient product to address the ageing issues. The moistuirser is white in colour and has a silky smooth medium to thin consistency. The bottle has a lovely slim and lightweight design with a smooth action pump dispenser nozzle which prevents over dispensing and gives controlled measures of product. The packaging is 100% recyclable and has a simple, clean, no fuss design. The cream is highly concentrated and I only need two pumps for my entire face, neck and décolleté area. The cream instantly absorbs and leaves no greasy residue or shine. I can certainly feel a subtle tightening effect on the skin which at first concerned me into thinking that the cream was not moisturising enough but I soon found that the moisturisation lasts all day until my evening cleanse and the tight feeling is simply the clever blend of ingredients working on the tone of your skin. The cream does not cause any greasiness or shine and provides an excellent base for my makeup. It has a fairly subtle, powdery rose and geranium fragrance which is not too overpowering and it reminds me of sherbet sweets?
After two weeks of use I have suffered no breakouts or irritation and I have noted a subtle but pleasing reduction in some of my finer lines and wrinkles. Mt skin tone looks more even and my skin is hydrated and smooth.
As I am finding that dehydration is a major concern lately, I would not say that this cream is the top of the Melvita range for hydration, however, I have continued to use my facial oil prior to application and my complexion has retained its normal moisture. For such a lightweight fluid moisturiser I have been pleasantly surprised by the results and with the added bonus of 100% natural ingredients. Well worth the purchase

Light yet effective

User Reviews

Strongest points
An easy to use pump dispenser. Subtle aroma, light texture that absorbs quickly.
After using for 2 weeks morning and night I can see and feel a difference. My skin looks more refined, firmer and the fine lines have diminished a little.
It has given my skin a more youthful appearance.
Weakest points
Just a tiny bit pricey
Summary
An effective moisturiser that is easy to use. Absorbs quickly and has a pleasant subtle aroma.
Gives results almost instantly, more noticeable after one or two weeks. You only need a small amount so will last quite a while. This is a serious contender for me when it comes to moisturisers. I am looking forward to using this further and seeing more resulys.
Well done Melvita
