It’s rare to find a brand that checks all of my boxes (clean ingredients, sustainable packaging, brand values, etc.) Truly, Mélan Skincare is a standout skincare brand that I wholeheartedly love and recommend.
If you’re not familiar with Mélan Skincare allow me to fill you in on a few facts about them.
- They are non-toxic, cruelty-free, vegan, and made with love in Cape Town, South Africa
- They’re super big on aromatic, skin-friendly ingredients, the formulations of which are placed in simple, environmentally-friendly packaging.
- The line is pretty unisex too, i.e. even a guy could use them!
- And don’t get me started on the scents. I can’t say for certain what heaven smells like — but I’m pretty confident it’s something like this brand: delicately divine (thanks to the essential oils and plant-based ingredients).
I was excited to dive into the products they sent me and report back to you guys with my thoughts.
This cleanser wins for how gentle it is while still being effective.
The formula is soap-free, yet it still manages to remove dirt, oil and impurities from the skin. I apply a small amount onto my hand and massage onto the skin, working into a soft, creamy lather.
The result? A refreshed, hydrated complexion that’s perfectly prepared for a great moisturizer.
Balancing Day Créme
This velvety cream feels great and absorbs quickly to replenish and soften the skin.
It contains antioxidants that purportedly boost hydration and smooth fine lines for when my skin is looking less than great.
But the real selling point is the texture — an airy, lightweight cream that really moisturizes without heaviness. It sinks in so fast you’ll forget you even applied it.
Balancing Night Créme
This night cream is truly magic in a jar.
It’s enriched with plenty of botanical extracts, and antioxidants to help smooth skin and give it a more rejuvenated look.
I love that it’s thick enough to have that luxurious feel on my face, yet so absorbent that it immediately sinks into the skin.
I use it every evening to help with hydration, smooth rough texture, and eliminate dry patches.
With continued use, I’ve noticed a positive effect on my skin — it provides purifying, calming, and soothing benefits, making it suitable for even the most compromised and sensitive skin types.
This mask is an all-in-one facial treatment in a tube, call it the perfect ingredient for a self-care Sunday!
This rich formula is loaded with skin-healthy ingredients, like vitamin E, geranium and shea butter, which target signs of dryness, fatigue and environmental stress in your complexion.
You can apply it as a quick hydrating mask, or leave it to sink in overnight.
This allows me to enjoy a night of recovery, repair and nourishment so I can wake up looking recharged, replenished and rejuvenated.
Energising Booster Oil
By definition, any type of oil will impart a gorgeous, youthful radiance, but this particular pick, really takes the cake.
This formula features, argan, sweet almond and grapeseed oil that are especially high in antioxidants, the ingredients responsible for warding off dryness, discoloration, and dullness.
And since oils are very concentrated, a little goes a long way, so only a few drops are needed, and then it can be patted into the skin.
Once absorbed, I’m left with a glowy effect instantly, but it also works overtime to leave your skin feeling even more smooth, radiant and moisturized.
It may sound unusual to describe a mist as “silky,” but if I’m being frank, it may be the only way to explain the soft, soothing feel of this product.
One spritz and my dry, dull skin feels instantly refreshed and energized.
The best part? There are several ways to use this product.
You can apply it when your skin needs a quick pick-me-up, as a toner or even as a makeup enhancer to refresh your look and hydrate your skin throughout the day — for a plump and bouncy complexion.
