Melvita LÓr Bio Extraordinary Oil – They weren’t kidding on the “extraordinary” part!
To go hand in hand with this post, the L’Occitane team also sent me a 17ml of Melvita LÓr Bio Extraordinary Oil – RM 178 (100 ml). The timing could not be any more perfect — I was running out of ideas of how to cure the dry patches on my face!
Oh, by the way — Did you know that Melvita means honey (Mel) and life (Vita) in Latin? Melvita started from a passion for bees and their invaluable role as sentinels of nature. Sounds delectable!
Upon receiving this Extraordinary Oil, I must admit that I was a little skeptic to use it. I thought — wouldn’t adding oil to my regime result to looking like a grease ball at the end of the day? What if it made me breakout? Several what ifs came to mind. Hence, the bottle was placed in my beauty drawer for several days, untouched. After all, I survived long enough without it.
… or so I thought.
First of all, let’s talk about my skin. My skin has been dry and flaky, as of late. I would blame the weather, but I know that is not the case. My body is definitely dehydrated — the warning signs were apparent everywhere. It even go to the point where my skin is becoming eczema-prone. How scary is that? I couldn’t even use a regular foaming cleanser without having a tight feeling on my face — and not the good one! If I don’t get to the bottom of this problem, my skin would go from 100 to 0, real quick!
In addition, I am almost always excessive when it comes to applying skin care on most days. Therefore, before my makeup routine — I would pile several pumps on hydrating lotions, serums and moisturizers before applying my tinted moisturizer or BB cremé. I believe that having a well-hydrated canvas to work with, my makeup application will go on smoother. To my dismay,
it’s too much work it doesn’t always work out that way.
What a bummer.

Here’s a short description that I found from the website:
With all the skill of a goldsmith, Melvita has crafted the most exquisite jewel for your skin: L’Or bio® Extraordinary Oil. A 100% natural oil that nourishes, beautiﬁes, protects and leaves behind a truly sublime scent! The ﬁne, silky texture sinks in quickly and gives a satin ﬁnish to delicate skin.
The L’Or bio® Extraordinary Oil is a 100% natural oil that nourishes, beautifies, protects and leaves behind a truly delicious scent! The ﬁne, silky texture sinks in quickly and gives a satin finish to delicate skin. What I find extremely pleasant is that this unique synergy of 5 rare and precious oils provides a subtle, non-oily, deeply nourishing protective ﬁlm for both the skin and hair. Argan oil from Morocco, known for its exceptional skincare properties, is combined with two more unusual oils: Kendi oil from Indonesia and Inca Inchi oil from Amazonia, with regenerating properties. Buriti oil from Brazil helps nourish the skin and promotes a healthy skin glow while Pracaxi oil from Amazonia improves hair shine and strength.
The skin is nourished, its beauty enhanced. The hair is radiant, shiny and protected!
This product is well loved! After a few unsure days, I decided to take the plunge. In all honesty, the product is super lightweight. What I also love about it is that the texture is runny and not too concentrated to be used on the face. In addition, this Extraordinary Oil is amazingly fast-absorbing — exactly how I would want a dry oil to be.
The L’Or bio® Extraordinary Oil is also multipurpose; you can use it in the shower, for your hair, for your tan — everything! Perfect for travelling, as well! In the terms of the fragrance, I was actually surprised. The Oil has a rich woody and floral scent (beautiful), but it disappears soonest I massaged them on! Definitely scored on my cards.
I would highly recommend the Melvita LÓr Bio Extraordinary range for your household. LÓr Bio Extraordinary is dermatologically tested, paraben-free, alcohol-free, as well as suitable for vegetarians!
Perfect for a Christmas present, no?
