Merumaya top 5 for 5th birthday

A couple of weeks ago, I came home to a mystery package. Here it was a lovely gift by Maleka and her team in preparation for Merumaya's 5th Birthday! So I thought what better way to celebrate than share with you my top 5 créme de la créme of an incredible skincare from my  favourite brand. Because there's no better time to update your skincare stash than autumn, am I right?

Fifth place goes to... Merumaya Melting Cleanser*

I wrote about my love for this melting gel cleanser many times (here, here, oh here, and here, here too). The formula is amazing, thick gel goes on smoothly and removes both makeup and the rest of nasties. Perfect first or second cleanse in my opinion. That Merumaya scent too <3

4th place goes to... Merumaya Mud Marvels Mask

Spots? What spots you'll ask yourself when you try Mud Marvels Mask. Best for when my skin feels congessted and experiences hormonal breakouts. The mask clarifies, decongests and cleanses pores like no other. If your skin lacks radiance or you're having a bad skin day, the active ingredients Activated Charcoal, Volcanic Ash, AHAs, Oat and Sweet Almond Oil will oxygenate, deeply hydrate and brighten your complexion. Detox in a tube for a busy city girl!

3rd place goes to... Merumaya Retinol Resurfacing Treatment*

One of my favourite overnight treatments, this is a dry skin friendly retinol. Retinoids are difficult ingredients, especially for dry and sensitive skin types. This retinol treatment has changed my view on retinol in skincare. The complex of ingredients such as Aroleat Samphira, Mediacalm, Hyaluronic Acid and recently popular Squalane balances the side effects often experienced with retinol treatments such as drying, even flakiness as well as increased sensitivity and irritation. I love using it at night when I need to go that little extra mile. It smoothes my skin and fills in little fine lines in no time and also helps with problematic areas too.

2nd place goes to... Merumaya Iconic Youth Serum

This serum does it all and some more too. No wonder it founds its place on Vouge's top 15 anti-ageing products list. Whilst myself and Maleka both despise the way beauty industry classifies anti-ageing, Vouge has got it right for once. The results are instantly visible but what makes this product remarkable is the long-term use. My skin feels plumped, nourished, moisturised, smooth and glowing. And when your skin looks this good, you'll feel happier. Happy skin, happy life, don't you agree?

1st place goes to... Merumaya Treatment Toner*

Ok, so this one was a no-brainer. What this toner does to my skin isn't easily explained. It is a glow in a bottle. I use it religiously every morning after cleansing and believe me the results are instant. I don't know what it is, but I assume all the goodness of ingredients such as Vit C, Hyaluronic Acid, Betaine and algae complex work together to deeply hydrate and brighten the complexion. It is a revelation and definitely my most loved skincare item EVER. Ever!!!
