Melvita L’or Bio Extraordinary Shower


Melvita pride themselves on the use of natural and organic ingredients in their beauty products, which are designed for everyday use without the need for harsh chemicals. Melvita was founded in 1983, way before it was trendy to produce natural/organic products, they were one of the first to receive the ECOCERT certificate for organic products in 2002. When I was first approached about trying the Melvita L’or Bio Extraordinary Shower, I had visions of slipping and sliding around my tub, but I was intrigued to find out how two contrasting textures such as gel and oil would be combined. The Shower Oil contains five rare, precious and organic oils combined with the L’or Bio scent. The oils are chosen for their enhancing properties and include Argan Oil from Morocco, Kendi Oil from Indonesia, Buriti Oil from Brazil, Inca Inchi Oil and Pracaxi Oil both from Amazonia.

I have to say this Shower Oil smells divine, I’m awful at describing scents, but Melvita describe the L’or Bio scent as having notes of Italian Bergamot, White Jasmine, Fig-tree, Tiare flower and Virginian Cedar. I would definitely consider purchasing the fragrance based on how it smells.

Melvita state that this oil will leave your skin silky soft and delicately scented, and the fact that I was still able to layer my usual fragrance on my skin in conjunction with this proves that they are right. This item produces a rich lather, much like any other shower gel, so I still had to moisturise afterwards. It’s £14 for a 250ml bottle, which is expensive for a shower gel, but I would buy this again and consider it as a treat.

Melvita L’or Bio Extraordinary Shower is available to buy from their website.
