I have been using this Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm* for over a month now & I wanted to wait a good while before I posted about it even thought I knew pretty early on that I absolutely loved it. Merumaya was a brand I hadn’t heard off but since doing a little background reading I have come to realise that once again I’m late to the party on this one. Merumaya is a brand that receives great reviews and in particular this Melting Cleaning Balm is a firm favourite in the beauty community. I even hear that my Oracle Caroline Hirons is a fan and recommends this as an alternative to the much hyped Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm.
I’ve never tried a Cleansing Balm before and was very excited to try this. It recommends you massage on to dry skin and it’s quite amazing how a little goes a long way. So don’t put too much product on as it’s really not needed. I take my time to really massage the Balm in and I adore the scent of this, I find it quite calming. As the name suggests my makeup melts away and it removes every last trace of foundation and dirt. After massaging this in to your skin you then add water. I clean it all off with a flannel and my skin is left feeling amazingly soft, like the kind of soft you’d expect after you’ve had an expensive facial. This balm is very effective and I’m absolutely sold on it.
The whole Merumaya range was created by a lady called Maleka Dattu, it’s developed to combat the signs of ageing and also to protect skin against ageing aggressors. So this is perfect for my skin as I’m in my mid 30′s and my skin really benefits from the anti oxidants and rich ingredients in this balm – such as
Almond Oil, Echium Oil (plant-based oil high in Omega 3,6 and 9), Mangosteen Extract (full of powerful anti oxidants) and Merymaya Signature Essence Blend. All very natural ingredients.
This balm is effortless to use and by massaging it into your face you remove all traces of makeup and give your skin a boost of moisture and hydration. I have oily skin and this leaves no greasy residue on my face, it has been a pleasure to use. I use this Merumaya Balm in the evening and my beloved balance Me pure skin face wash in the morning I seem to have an effective routine that is very gentle and soothing – Oh and that smells amazing too! My skin is looking bright and I have been getting less breakouts, infact I have had only one breakout since I began using this and that makes me a very happy lady.
If you’re in the market for a Cleansing Balm I highly recommend trying this one from Merumaya it is a complete bargain at£14.50 for 100ml.
