Review: Melvita Deodorant Spray

Melvita Deodorant Spray 50ml MYR 77.00

When I heard that Melvita has landed in Malaysia, I went "Hurray!". I have heard loads about this brand, firstly being a pioneer in organic cosmetics and has grown to become one of France's leading brands of natural and organic cosmetics. Among their wide range, I was particularly interested in their beauty oils. Their oil range is pretty impressive. Because I am still loving my MVO Anti-Aging Oil, I've decided not to invest in their beauty oil range yet but their deodorant ( since I have stopped using the Moogoo deodorant ).

Product Description

My Experience

This deodorant comes in a nice frosted glass bottle with a spray. To me, the deodorant itself is like water, scented with mint. They did say it contained rose as well but my nose didn't seemed to pick up the scent. I started using it for day and night since October and to date, this deodorant did nothing for me at all. Coincidentally, that month, I went through a detox programme and sadly, this deodorant did not manage to control the unpleasant smell.

I was pretty upset with this, especially seeing that I've spent MYR 77 on an unimpressive deodorant. I was disappointed and even told the salesgirl about it. This had me thinking, is it me or is it that the deodorant is not suitable for people with my condition?


There's really nothing for me to mentioned further about this product. If you want me to compare, Moogoo deodorant worked for a longer period than this ..and much cheaper too! Sadly, after 2 months, the Moogoo deodorant stopped working for me as well and I discovered that the rims of the roll on turned moldly. ( I can't bear to even take a picture of it because it is pretty disgusting to look at )

Despite purchasing a product which did not impress me this time, it would not deter me from checking out their skincare ranges because I believe there must be one or two products out there that will work out for me.....

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.


  1. too bad it didn't do anything at all for u.i like your optimism about how definitely there will be one or 2 products that will work for u ;)

    have u tried the weekly deodorant thing from guardian?

    1. Hi Xin! Hehe...well, I believe one rotten apple doesn't necessarily makes the rest of the apples go bad:P I haven't come across the deodorant thing you mentioned from guardian though. What's the name?
      At the moment, I am taking a supplement, which helps to eliminate ordours( review will be up next month or so ) and also my own so-called DIY Deo..hehe...will give my thoughts of it very soon.

  2. it's called once a week deo, or weekly deo, its a wipe that u use only once a week. not sure they still have it in guardian or not, but i have reviewed it before

    1. Sound's interesting. Perhaps will drop by guardian one day to check it out.

  3. nice opinion.. thanks for sharing....

  4. You may want to try their roll-on deodorant. I was looking for one which is natural but effective enough to stay me away from the smell during work out. It really works. Really impressed.

    1. I looked elsewhere from Melvita for deos because this one was disappointing and I think I wouldn't want to spend too much again on something that might be un-effective to me. Besides, I know I need something more 'heavy-duty':)
