When one of your favourite brands brings out a new product you’re naturally going to be excited, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the new Gentle Exfoliating Toner from Merumaya at £17.50. I’ve actually had the pleasure of meeting the mastermind behind Merumaya and after finding out about the background, getting a real sense of what it’s about and seeing Maleka’s enthusiasm and love for her creations in the flesh, you do tend to love a brand more.
The famous and signature scent of Merumaya is something everyone needs to experience, although it’s kept a tight secret you’ll definitely recognise parts of it, but it’s just one of those blends that you would wear daily, spray around your home and bathe in (just another subtle hint that I’m waiting for bath products!) The new Gentle Exfoliating Toner has come from the uprising of exfoliating toners in the past year, but more often or not they aren’t suitable for more sensitive skin types. This one goes above and beyond by containing the maximum level of Natural AHA’s. I know what some of you and myself may have thought when you first read that, AHAs what? Merumaya explain….
‘Natural AHA’s Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are proven to act as exfoliants, loosening and removing the top layer of dead cells. This reveals the new skin cells below. Natural AHA Complex provides a superficial peel action resulting in an improved surface appearance for a fresher, smoother look to skin. AHAs help to remove dry skin and can be useful in treating blemished or problem skin, unblocking and cleansing pores.’
Sounds amazing, right? Well, it really is! Not only does is contain these incredible acids, but it also has the skincare must have, Hyaluronic Acid. You probably all know by now just how truly fantastic this ingredient is for keeping skin hydrated, as it can hold x1000 of its own weight in water. Which helps to improve plumpness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains Natural Betaine which helps to manage the water balance in skin cells as it can hold 1.6 times its own weight in water! There’s some seriously clever ingredients in this toner which makes it an incredible product to use morning and night to really enhance your skincare routine.
This has been incredible for my skin whilst I’m trying to get over a cold and the spots it has left behind! I cannot recommend Merumaya‘s product enough, it’s not often I have to buy skincare with testing so many out, but I do always try to keep stocked up on the melting balm cleanser, it’s truly my favourite.
