Following the success the Merumaya eye cream in depuffing my eyes, I was looking forward to trying other products in the same range.
Merumaya Cleansing Balm
I love cleansing balms. For me, there is something incredibly relaxing about melting away your makeup along with your day last thing at night, especially if the balm smells good too (as this one does). I also like to think that I am doing something extra to treat my skin, as well as just removing makeup. I liked the fact that the Merumaya
cleansing balm comes in a tube, far easier than playing with pots and spatulas, and also easy to pop into a travel bag for all those weekends away we supposedly have time for in our 50s!
The balm quite literally melts on your face, and after rinsing leaves your skin feeling velvety smooth. Skin feels good before applying serums or moisturisers. A definite find, and less expensive than other quality cleansing balms I’ve used. a treat to look forward to at the end of the day.
£14 for 100ml
Merumaya Iconic Youth Serum
I have used the Iconic Youth Serum twice a day for 2 weeks. I can definitely say that my skin feels more ‘velvety’ and ‘denser’ and my pores appeared to look smaller.
The serum has a thick, gel-like consistency, and a little seemed to go a long way!
It smells lovely, and after applying my skin immediately felt smooth, as though I had just used a primer.
Merumaya Iconic Youth serum has 10 active ingredients, to smooth, plump and protect.
As I film a lot of ‘how to’ videos I have to be really
careful that I don’t use any products on my skin which I am likely to react to, its bad enough going barefaced on camera without being barefaced with a rash or spots! I’m delighted to say that after 2 weeks of using the Iconic Youth Serum my skin looked and felt fab – in fact I found that I could get away with wearing
less foundation than usual.
A definite ‘fab’ buy.
£34 for 30 ml
