Narcissus, super Hydro powers!

Hi Luvs,

Today we will talk about Narcissus, a super flower that is great at storing water. “Once in bloom, Narcissus flowers have the ability to circulate hydration between multiple flower heads” [1 ]. Narcissus has a history of being used in herbal medicine (particularly Japanese) but lost its popularity because of the toxins that it contains.  If ingested, Narcissus can cause poisoning in humans. But science is amazing and now they are able to extract to the virtues of this plant without the allergens or toxins.

One brand that has studied the Narcissus flower extensively and have created amazingly hydrating skincare products with Narcissus extract is Mamonde! Mamonde has its own flower garden where they spend years studying flowers in a natural setting. Because of this, they are able to harvest flowers not only at their peak but also at the ideal time in the day to harvest each individual flower! “Just like the Narcissus Flower that holds onto moisture, [Mamonde] utilize low molecular Hyaluronic Acid that results in holding more optimal moisture levels for intense moisture in even the most dehydrated skin.”[2]

I personally use 2 products that Mamonde manufactures using Narcissus extract: The Floral Hydro Cream and Narcissus Flower Lab Essential Sheet Mask.

PSX_20180411_152403The Narcissus Flower Lab Essential Sheet Mask:
What I loved about this Mask, it is super hydrating, plus after 1/2hr the sheet mask was still moist. So there was no fear that it would dry out and draw moisture from the skin. Added bonus, there was enough fluid left in the packet for 2 more applications (I applied it like a regular mask, not a sheet mask, just paste it on your face and neck). My skin feels so soft and smooth after each application and my face was glowing. Definitely dry skin approved.

PSX_20180411_152058The Floral Hydro Cream:
This is my new daily moisturizer. I fell in love with it the first time I tried it. It’s hydrating but light weight. Many moisturizers for severely dry skin are so thick with oils, they clog my pores and cause acne. With the Floral Hydro cream, my skin breathes freely and I have less break outs. You have to feel it to believe it!

I received both of these products complimentary from Mamonde to review. Prior to this I never thought about the hydrating properties of The Narcissus Flower. Now I’m going to be on the look out for more moisturizers made with extracts from the Narcissus flower. If you see any body lotions made with it, please send me a link, I definitely need it.

Have you tried any products made with Narcissus Flowers? After reading the blog post, do you think you will?

Until next time,

Stay Beautiful,

XOXO,
Avi

  1. I Love narcissus flowers. I didnt know about all their properties but my granny used them to make salves when I was younger. So last spring I used some in a toner I created and it came out really nice. It added a nice element to the scent along with my roses, chamomile and lavender and since I have sensitive skin I think it helped in the soothing aspect as well.

  2. I found this so fascinating & never knew you could use the flower in skincare because I knew it was poisonous if consumed. Being that bit older I find my skin can dehydrate a lot so this sounds like it could be beneficial to me.
    Thank you so much for this review, I loved reading it

  18. Lovely article! I have extreme dry skin and I suppose such hydrating skincare products like this will help me out. I had bought a cream from online which was kind of gel based but had rare flowers infused in it in the form of petals. 🌸 It has a very strong fragrance to it though. I have come across articles reading that those who have irritating skin should stay away from creams having fragrances.
