Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm Review

I had the pleasure of meeting the Merumaya team at #BlogConLND this year, see my post all about that hereI got to speak to Maleka Dattu, Founder & Creator of the brand. She was so passionate about the brand and her products. My favourite thing was the brand ethos. It all about celebrating women and men for who they are, the beauty they already have, rather than focussing on changing people's flaws and imperfections. Merumaya also focus on celebrating ageing and emphasising that there is no shame in ageing or taking measures to prevent ageing. I absolutely love it! 

I was given a sample of the Cleansing Balm to try at the event. Maleka put the product on the back of our hands and got us to test it out during the event. The main thing I noticed was how soft it left the skin on my hand. At this point, I was very excited to try it out when I got home.

Since the event, I have been trying out this product and the overall verdict is I love it! The product is a balm-like consistency, somewhere between a cream and a solid oil cleanser. It works into the face really well, breaking down your makeup. They named it right when they said melting, it really does melt the makeup away. When you add water to the product, it turns it into a more milky/oil like consistency, which really helps to keep breaking down the makeup. I then finish by wiping all the product and makeup away with a face cloth. My skin was left feeling soft and nourished. It also did a really good job at removing all my makeup. The only issue I found was I didn't know if it could be used with eye makeup or not - so I haven't been using it on my eyes. Better to be safe than sorry. 

In terms of its ingredients, it contains Echium Oil - a source of Omega 3 which helps to reduce wrinkles, sweet almond oil - rich in vitamin E to hydrate and mangosteen fruit extracts - which is an antioxidant and has antibacterial properties. Lovely natural ingredients, containing no parabens or paraffins.

Overall, I have really loved this product, so much so I have now completely run out! The product has been fantastic, but for me, the brand ethos is even more amazing. I'll definitely be checking out other products from Merumaya and putting them to the test too. 
Have you tried anything from Merumaya before? What are your recommendations?

  1. I've never tried anything from Merumaya before but I usually love these kinds of 'melting' cleansing balms because they seem to remove makeup so effortlessly and gently.

    Lovely review :)


  2. Oh this sounds wonderful, I really like balmy cleansers so I need to check it out. Also love their ethos.
