If you have breakout-prone and irritable skin, this Melissa Cream is your new BFF!
Formerly known as the Balm Mint Cream, this rich moisturizer balances and repairs oily-sensitive skin types while calming and relieving irritated skin.
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter is known for its healing and calming properties. It's excellent for ultra-sensitive skin that is prone to rosacea, eczema, and/or dehydration.
Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) extract is great for combating breakouts as it is anti-inflammatory as well as a mild astringent, ensuring that your skin is calm and refreshed.
Melissa (Balm Mint) Leaf is a calming ingredient with antibacterial properties.

Have used Melissa cream for over a decade and LOVE it, as well as other Martina products.
My skin is really red on the cheeks and prone to breakouts. This cream is on the thicker side so I was hesitant at first since I’m used to lighter creams but every time I use it I notice a big difference the next day on my cheeks. It really looks like I cleared up and significantly less red. Great for colder winter months too
This cream is amazing for healing skin problems. It's a little heavy for me for daily facial use, but it's very calming. If I ever have any issues - like a rash, sunburn, prickly heat, etc., anywhere on my body - this cream is like a miracle. I just ran out after using the last of my little tub on a sunburn that produced little itchy lumps. I would recommend it highly.
This is my favourite product. I use this morning and night without fail! I sometimes get acne,but my skin is too sensitive and dehydrated for traditional drying acne treatments. It took a little bit of courage to try such a heavy cream,but now I will never go back to lighter lotions. Some people may want to use a lighter cream in the morning,but I love that my skin still feels moisturised all day. My skin feels less tight and red and my cystic acne seems less frequent.
