They are either so astringent that they zapp my already dry skin of any moisture, or they irritate my sensitive eyes and then I cannot bare to use them.
When the team at Merumaya got in touch telling me of a new release for the brand I was intrigued. Could there be an exfoliating toner that sloughs off dead skin cells, whilst clearing and refining my pores, and not irritating my dry skin and eyes?!
Ladies and Gentleman, we have a winner!
The Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner a 128ml marvel!
I've been giving this baby a run for it's money - my skin is stressed, being jobless, eating crap food and generally feeling awful has meant that for the past 3 weeks my skin just doesn't look like my skin anymore.
The Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner is powered by Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and balanced with skin hydrating and softening ingredients.
Thus removing the stripping effect that all my previous exfoliating toners have had.
Other ingredients are Hyaluronic Acid which is highly prized for excellent hydration and helps to provide plumpness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Natural Betaine is an osmoregulator manages water balance in skin cells. It can hold 1.6 times its own weight in water. It hydrates the surface of skin resulting in a soft and even finish.
AHA's gently, yet effectively peel away dead skin, detoxify, cleanse and refine pores, revealing fresh, smooth, brighter skin. Hyaluronic acid and natural betaine provide moisture, plumpness and a reduction in the signs of skin ageing and importantly, prevent skin drying out during and after the exfoliation.Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner seems to sink in faster, and my skin feels more even in texture and brighter.
By holding a cotton pad soaked in the exfoliating toner over more problem areas, this has helped to calm my skin, and clear it of imperfections.
Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner have all of these benefits, but I have to mention the toners scent - It's luxurious and extremely calming, and not like anything I have smelt before. I love it so much I wish Merumaya offered the scent in a pillow spray or room diffuser I really cannot get enough of it.
So there you have it, if you're looking for a skin changer, that smells devine, looks like water but offers huge benefits to all skin types then the Merumaya Gentle Exfoliating Toner can do it!
