Marlenha is a brand of high-potency Italian skincare which takes nature’s most exquisitely beautiful flowers as its inspiration. Blending botanical ingredients with leading edge bio-active technology Marlenha’s sublime formulas nourish and rejuvenate every skin type, revealing a brighter, healthier complexion.
Recently I was sent one of their moisturisers to try and being a big fan of niche brands I was excited to discover what Marlenha skincare had to offer!
Marlenha Blossom Elixir (50ml, £42)* is a multi action moisturiser which treats combination skin to gentle daily nourishment, which helps balance the skins own oil production, alleviate redness, and reduce the signs of ageing.
This lightweight, rose-scented moisturiser features an expert blend of hardworking botanicals including the following:
Argan Oil – exceptionally rich in tocopherols (Vitamin E) and fatty acids, it helps to prevent early skin ageing, and leaves skin soft, smooth and silky.
Vitamin E – antioxidant that protects and repairs skin
Lipomoist – a molecular film which is easily absorbed into the skin, many benefits including immediate and long-term hydration
Octapeptide (listed as Acetyl octapeptide-3) – anti-wrinkle, anti-ageing. Reduces the depth of wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acids – delivers vital hydration, plumping and moisturising
DN-Age – prevents the visible signs of DNA photo-ageing
Cactus fruit extract – softening and hydrating with anti-inflammatory properties
Rice Bran Oil – a particularly softening and nourishing oil
Organic olive oil – optimal hydration and nourishment, with soothing, protecting and repairing properties; fights the signs of skin ageing
Wild Rose – astringent, toning and balancing
Rose Hip Oil – it contains vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that correct dark spots and hydrate dry
Jojoba Oil – Highly penetrative and very protective, Jojoba oil has excellent softening and moisturising properties
I’ve been using this moisturiser for over month and I can honestly say my skin is so much clearer and brighter. The hormonal breakouts I usually suffer from mid-month are a thing of the past and my t-zone looks less shiny. The texture is light yet nourishing, sinking in readily and leaving the skin soft, supple and bright. The product is beautifully packaged and really is a pleasure to use; perfect for combination skins of any age.
