Melvita Nectar De Miels rescue dry & sensitive skin with Thyme honey!

Melvita launched Nectar de Miels bodycare a while ago. Sorry I have been really busy and I wish I could share with you guys sooner on this.

Being a fan of Melvita, I can't help to contains my excitement when they launched this new range that is enriched with organic Thyme Honey because they said this will rescue even the driest and most sensitive skin!

Thyme flowers are rich in nectar and loved by bees of the Mediterranean Basin. The Romans would use it to purify the air in their houses while during Middle Ages, a few spring of thyme would be slipped under the pillows to chase away nightmares and soothe troubled sleep. 

Melvita's organic thyme comes from the La Sierra de Cebollera nature reserve in Spain. It's harvested by a family of beekeepers who have looked after almost 4,000 hives there for the past three generations. This natural enclave, surrounded by mountains, guarantees an organic honey of the highest quality.

Following the research done by Melvita, they found that Thyme flowers honey was able to acts like a natural "dressing" with an instant soothing effect to our skin. It has also reveal an amazing synergic effect when it's combined with acacia and orange blossom honeys in the NEW Nectar de Miels range to HEAL and RESCUE very dry & sensitive skin.

Melvita Nectar De Miels range comes with 3 products ; Hand  cream, Body Balm and Body Milk Lotion.

This exceptional nourishing and repairing range has 3 main ingredients mainly ;

Patents Complex of Three Organic Honeys - thyme, orange blossom and acacia honey which protects, repairs and revitalizes the skin

Soline - an active ingredients derived from sunflower oil, which softens the skin, helps prevent moisture loss and strengthened the skin's barrier function

Alpha Bisabolol - derived from candeia, which immediately soothes the skin

With me I have the comforting balm & milk lotion for review ; 

Melvita Comforting Balm  - RM138 / 175ml

Melvita Creamy Milk - RM115 / 200ml

Both this body lotion has floral sweet honey scent because it is enriched with organic thyme honey.

 that is a little empowering at the first sniff for me but it soon goes away after a while. Soon after that I got used to the scent. I have very dry skin to start off and some times my leg skin is flaky... so I have to constantly have to apply body moisturiser. 

The Comforting Creamy Milk is lighter in texture compared to Comforting Balm which is more rich, smooth and creamy. Both leaves my skin incredibly soft after massaging it into my skin and most importantly it does not leave greasy/sticky feeling behind. Personally I prefer to apply Creamy Body Milk in the morning and Comforting Balm at nigh because it is super moisturizing and it leave my skin feeling soft & supple till next morning although I sleep in my in air-conditioning room. For rough skin areas like elbow, knee and heel, I would suggest to apply comforting balm and after that cover with long sleeve/pants or put on socks for better result. Highly recommending it to people with dry & sensitive skin! 

It think it also heals my skin scratches (I got from playing with my dog) faster by soothing, moisturizing and healing my skin. Highly recommended for people with dry skin as it is a concentrate of nutrition for skin! 

And if you are someone who is really into organic & natural skincare and body care, this is definitely a brand you have to try because Melvita has Ecocert which means at least 95% of their total ingredients are from natural origins, and at least 95% if the total plant-based ingredients are organic while at least 10% of the total ingredients are from organic farming.

Melvita Nectar De Miels range is already available for sale at Melvita Boutiques (1 Mont Kiara, 1 Utama and Mid Valley) or online at

Melvita Nectar De Roses Range & L'occitane x Pierre Herme 2015 Christmas Collection.

Christmas came early for me! Thanks Melvita Malaysia and L'occitane Malaysia for sharing their Christmas collection with me last month. I was so swarm with work and I wish I could share with you earlier. Nevertheless you still have few days to do your last minutes Christmas shopping!

This year my favourite organic skincare brand introduced new Nectar De Roses Range for this Christmas to give you the complete organic wild roses scented layering journey! 

The 3 wild roses that are use in this range are Rosa Mosqeta from South of Chile , Rosa Canina from Vercors and Rosa Gallica from Regions of Drome. Together this bouquet of fresh roses fills the air with bee-jolly season with a delicate fragrance.

With that Melvita introduced 3 products that has this captivating scent that moisturises and revitalises even the thirstiest skin, from head to toe.

Nectar de Rose Rose Petal Shower (RM80/250ml) - Three hand-picked wild roses reveal all the freshness of their scent in this one single shower gel! I love how the gel shower transforms to foam with a light and floral fragrance, feel like I'm having shower of flower petals on my skin ... so luxurious!  This formula is soap-free shower gel and it is formulated with 98% easily biodegradable ingredients.

Melvita Nectar de Rose Hydrating Body Veil (RM115/200ml) - Formulated with a blend of its three unique roses and ultra-getle water, this fresh lotion envelops the body in a light and fragrant veil of moisture. Perfect for thristy skin as it provides instant soothing sensation (up to 24 hours hydration!), like drops of summer rain falling gently onto a delicate flower.

Melvita 3 Roses Nectar Lips and Dry Areas (R62/8g) - This balm comes with fresh delicate scent giving you a soft, smooth, creamy texture with delicate iridescent shade of pink in a jar. This balm will leave lips moisturized, smoother, soft and supple.

On top of this, Melvita also introduced L'Or Bio Extraordinary Oil (MYR178/100ml) this Christmas. This dry oil (which leaves a satin feeling on the skin without feeling slick) consists a blend of 5 rare and precious oils gathered from the four corners of the world, provides a subtle, non-oily, deeply nourishing protective film for both skin (face & body) and hair! Using Argan oil from Morocco, known for its exceptional skincare properties, is combined with two more unusual oils; Kendi oil from Indonesia, Inca Inchi oil from Amazonia (with regenerating properties), Buriti oil from Brazil (helps nourish the skin and promotes a healthy glow) and Pracaxi Inchi Oil from Amazonia (improves hairs shine and strength).

I personally love rose scent...and if you are like me... Nectar de Rose is for you! With the 100% organic active ingredients for 24-hour hydration, this would be the perfect gift for yourself and your loved one.. So don't forget to check out Melvita organic Christmas set at their website here 

 This year L'occitane has an interesting collaboration this year for their Christmas collection when their founder Olivier Baussan invited his friend Pierre Herme who is a  renowned pastry chef in Paris to come up with  L'occitane x Pierre Herme collection.

The collection is perfected when Olivier focus to create the shape and colors for the collections bottle and the box while Pierre Herme creates the fragrances and flavours.

L’occitane 2015 Christmas Collection consists of Jasmin-Immortelle Neroli, Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe and Miel-Mandarine. 

Jasmin-Immortelle Neroli is my favourite collection of all because it has floral and really nice feminine scent that  Pierre Herme has created. He balances the white rose notes of gardens at dawn with the gold of a flower that still flourishes throughout the Corsican masquis.

Middle notes: Jasmine, Immortelle, Neroli, Orange Blossom 
Base notes: Amber, White Wood, Musk

Perfumed Soap - RM24/50g
Handcream - RM41/30ml
Lipgloss - RM41/12ml

L'occitane Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe collection offers quivering accord that tantalizes the nose and the taste bud. When Pierre Herme places Grapefruit at the heart of a creation, he means to celebrate all its facets. And that includes the slightly bitter, white inner skin – its character underlined by the green and crisp aromas of Rhubarb. This beautifully balanced note is soon ruffled at its heart by sensual, piquant spices. In this original composition, woody notes of Cedar conjure up the sensation of mischievous Grapefruit cutting through the tartness of Rhubarb stalks.
Head notes: Grapefruit, Rhubarb, Lemon, Cypress 
Middle notes: Clove, Nutmeg, Lavandin 
Base notes: Cedar, Vetive

Shower Gel - RM88/250ml
Body Lotion - RM127/250ml
Perfumed Soap - RM24/50g
Handcream - RM41/30ml

L'occitane Miel-Mandarine collection is made from Mandarin orange... I know some of you are thinking of Chinese New year now! Soon ya! Anyway in this range only handcream (RM41/30ml) and lipbalm (RM41/12ml) available.

Head notes: Mandarin Orange 
Middle notes: Immortelle, Beeswax 
Base notes: Benzoin, Tonka, Cistus

Out of the 3 collections, I prefer the L'occitane Pamplemousse-Rhubarbe because it has the refreshing citrus scent which keep me fresh and awake throughout. Don't forget to check out  L'occitane x Pierre Herme Christmas set promo here.

So I would like to share some Tips to have Longer Lasting Fragrance here. In fact the secret is in your daily body care routine. Build up different layers of fragrance from your shower gel, body lotion, deodorant and finished off with a spritz of fragrance behind your ears and on the nape of your neck to have a lasting effect. Lastly don't forget to touch up at mid-day with roll on or body spray.

Hope this give you some ideas what Melvita & L'occitane got to offer this Christmas and what you can pick for Christmas.  For more info visit and

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you have a wonderful celebration with your family and friends! I would be away flying off tonight to celebrate my White Christmas.... and follow me on my Instagram @jessyings or my Jessying Facebook Page to stalk me :p

Review : Clarins Body Shaping Cream

It's no secret that I love Clarins skincare and here are some of my favourite!

If you haven't try their HydraQuench Mask or One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, you should totally try them. I lost count how many tubes of HydraQuench Mask I have used actually. And thanks to my friend recommendation Juli I bought this One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. I actually bought one tube when I arrived Taipei Airport but accidentally left it in the first hotel after using for one time before moving to another hotel. And came back to KLIA2 Airport and bought this tube again cause I  really like it!

I have heard so much about Clarins body products but haven't really try it.

With me here is the new Clarins Body Shaping Cream that helps to target stubborn fat, firms and redefines shape.

It has Organic Quince extract which helps improve firmness and elasticity and Hibiscus Flower acids and Betaine which helps to hydrate and smoothed the skin 

It comes in a super big jar! 

The texture is light cream type which leave the skin smooth after application. The texture has the melting designed formula that is easy to use for massage. It is neither oily or sticky after application, yay! I really like the light floral-woody scent which gives a sense of freshness after application.  

It's recommended to use Clarins Anti Stubborn Curves Self Massage Method.

How to apply Clarins Body Shaping Cream: 

1. Apply a small amount of Clarins Body Shaping Cream to the targeted area 
2. Massage your cream in circular motions to increase circulation and target the deeper tissues 
3. Use daily for optimal results.

What I usually do before I sleep is to glide through my fists over my hips, abdomen, arms and other targeted area before I massage in circular motion.
In case you are wondering, this is not a magic cream that can works overnight to slim you down. It needs determination to apply this Clarins Body Shaping Cream daily to see result, it's better to use hard pressure while doing massaging as it will effectively break down fat and it's a bit painful honestly. I can feel slightly ache at some areas and my body felt a little bit lighter. I guess it takes the bloatedness and water retention away. Luckily the muscle soreness disappeared quickly after a few days leaving the skin firmer each and every time. 

To get the triple sculpting, firming and refining action in a sumptuously soft formulation to be working, it is also important to have healthy & balance lifestyle to complement. And I have tried to sleep early nowadays, go for swimming and eat healthily (avoid eating too late etc) hopefully can lose all the stubborn fats away slowly and healthily.

Clarins Body Shaping Cream is priced at RM245 for 200ml and available in Clarins counters.
