Merumaya Melting Cleansing balm

I've been a fan of cleansing oils for a while now and have recently come around to cleansing balms, so when I saw a tweet looking for people to try Merumaya's Melting Cleansing balm* I put myself forward.

Merumaya Melting Cleansing balm

Although I have heard of the brand Merumaya this is my first experience of using one of their products. The Melting Cleansing balm contains echium oil which contains omega 3, 6 and 9 to reduce lines and wrinkles, improve elasticity and help to repair barrier function. It also contains sweet almond oil, which Merumaya refer to as a 'wash on' moisturiser, leaving a velvety feel on the skin. Although called a balm this is somewhere between a cleansing oil and a traditional 'solid' balm. Whereas an oil will usually come in a bottle with a pump and a balm in a tub or pot, this one comes in a squeezable tube. It dispenses easy providing a 'blob' of silky feeling balm. Although it doesn't actually require melting down the best way to apply the balm is to rub it between your fingers to spread out the balm before applying to dry skin.

There is a fragrance to the product but I can't actually place what this is. Although reasonably strong I don't find it particularly overpowering and it's quite pleasant as you massage the product in to your skin. I haven't actually tried using this to remove make-up but while I don't like using solid balms because I have trouble removing them from my eyes, I don't think this would be a problem at all with this one. As I said this is a very silky feeling balm so you don't need to use an awful lot and it glides over skin easily. After massaging into the skin for a while you add water to emulsify into a milk. Merumaya recommend then removing with a cloth but I've found it is easy enough to remove this just with water. 

As winter has been starting to change into spring I've been struggling with very dry skin and I've turned to this to try and get some moisture into my skin. It's one of those cleansers that not only leaves your skin feeling really clean but also not at all stripped, as if you've used a light moisturiser rather than cleanser. Using this and a few other fail safe products my skin has improved and I'm not having to battle with dry patches as much now. 

The Merumaya Melting Cleansing balm is £16.50 and is available from the Merumaya website. 

Have you tried any Merumaya products?

  3. Having a drier skin-type, nourishing, balm cleansers are a must for me. This sounds lovely and it's significantly cheaper than the ones I'm currently using, so I'd love to give it a try!

    1. My skin is so dry and sensitised at the moment so I'm definitely turning to oils and balms like this to cleanse but also try and add some moisture at the same time x

  8. I haven't used a cleansing balm before (neither a cleansing oil), but I love natural oils for my face, they are so good! I have combination-oily skin but sometimes it gets very dry. I don't know if it's the change of season and the weather warming up, but it bothers me a lot.

    1. It may well be the change in season as I have that problem too but maybe your skin might be dehydrated if it swings between oily and dry? x
