MERUMAYA Melting Cleansing Balm™, 100ml

Product information

A cleansing balm from MERUMAYA that spreads effortlessly over your skin, melting on contact so that your fingers glide easily, picking up make up and the day's grime. When you add water to the massage, it turns to a light milk, making it easy to remove with Daily Cleansing Cloths ™ or a splash of water.

Features Sweet Almond Oil and Echium Seed Oil (RevitElix ™), Mangosteen extract and the MERUMAYA Signature Essence Blend, integratively balanced to make Melting Cleansing Balm ™ an experience you cannot do without.

MERUMAYA recommends: Use with Daily Cleansing Cloths ™ for thorough cleansing right up to the hairline without ruining your blow dry, as well as providing a facial-quality cleanse.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautifully clean skin! A great product with a supple smooth consistency, melts softly into your skin, a d wipes or rinses all makeup away! Absolutely love this product! Very herbal uplifting aroma! 18 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best cleanser Really good cleanser takes all make up off and leaves my skin feeling great 17 June 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Caused puffy eyes After reading some excellent reviews I decided to try this balm. Smells OK, not wonderful though. I used it to take all make up off including eye make up. Removed it well and left skin feeling soft but I woke up with really puffy eyes the next morning. I will continue to use it but not on the eye area. 13 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant, gentle cleanser I'm on my fifth bottle of this after Caroline Hirons recommended it on her blog around a year ago. In a squeezy bottle and with a gentle, melting consistency, it's an easy, fuss-free cleanser that is ideal for the morning when you just want to gently clean your skin and get it ready for make-up application that day. It has a lovely, subtle herbal fragrance which makes using it even more pleasant. This could definitely be used for removing make-up, night-time cleansing etc, but for myself I prefer to use blemish targeting products in the evening before bed. I absolutely love it and can't see me buying another cleanser any time soon. If that wasn't good enough, it's also very affordable. I guess that's why I've been repurchasing it all year. 31 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product As a new client to Merumaya, I am really thrilled to have found a very special product range that seems to suit what I look for in regard to a mature skin type, but without being too oily or thick or that you actually have to take an overdraft to enjoy the pleasures of beautiful things. I found Merymaya whilst shopping at John Lewis in Cheadle and as soon as I tried the cleanser and toner testers and smelled the amazing perfume of your products, there was no doubt in my mind that this was something I would be happy with. After living in South Africa for many years and having a good friend who was a practicing Homeopath, she always advised that the product should feel good but also smell good, hence I left John Lewis with two products. I look forward to trying the various other items in the range and congratulations on Merumaya - I will not hesitate to compliment your range to family and friends. 15 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Eat your heart out Liz Earl! A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to meet Maleka Dattu founder of Merumaya and was given a few of her samples to try. Instant love for this gorgeous cleansing balm . It is rich and silky and great for massaging in to the skin, but it turns milky when you add water and it rinses off clean. I think that this one would be OK for just about every type of skin, including oily. It removes makeup very well and doesn’t leave any greasiness to the skin – Big bonus point for the fact that this is packaged in a tube – for seasoned travellers such as myself this is a total coup. Lightweight packaging and an all-in-one makeup remover, top marks! 01 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flawless Skin Recently sampled the Melting Cleansing Conditioner and Iconic Youth Serum, both of which I love and picked up from John Lewis whilst on my travels in Glasgow yesterday - couldn't wait a day without them - sink straight into my skin, which I can feel working overnight and wake up to ''see-through" flawless skin! 26 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smells lovely and super quick to use For those used to face washes, it might seem strange to initially apply this to your face with no water. However, after the first few uses, you get to used to it and it makes sense to emulsify the make-up off your face before adding water. It really gets rid of everything, is very mild and smells lovely. Give it a go! 16 September 2014
