If you have been blog-hopping or mall-hopping, you should have heard or seen Melvita boutiques locally (KLCC & 1-Utama).
Being the pioneer of organic brand in France, they have a lot of products to offer from head to toe, including tooth paste. I would really love to test the strawberry flavored toothpaste one day
But right now, let’s focus on the toner – Narcissus Extraordinary Water, a toner that I have been using for the past months. There are many debates on whether you need to use a toner or not, and actually I don’t notice a huge difference with or without. At the end of the day, if you feel good about using it, why not?
Narcissus is said to have brightening effect with regular use. To use this, the best way is to pour on your palm and gently pat it onto your face. This is to minimize wastage and easier to reach the hard-to-reach areas on your face. I will usually use this right after cleansing, and continue with moisturizer while the skin is still moist.
The texture is quite light, and non-sticky. It gets absorbed pretty fast too. It has light fragrance that will not irritate your nose too much.
For extremely dry cheek area, sometimes I soak up cotton pads and let it rest on my skin for 5-10 minutes. I don’t recommend longer than 10 mins because once it’s dried for too long, your skin will feel even more dehydrated.
Overall, I have no complaints about this toner as a treat for my skin, however, I don’t see any significant effect either. I call this a treat because the price tag is rather heavy for a toner, and there are definitely other toners out there which can perform the same, but if you judge it from the view of it being organic, then it’s not too bad.
