MeruMaya Iconic Youth Serum

MeruMaya is one of those brands that doesn't get as much support as it should because it is such a lovely brand and each product I have tried, this being my second, I have loved.  As a brand, I love that MeruMaya integrates clinically tested active ingredients and natural resources to ensure that their products offer you the best of everything whilst taking into consideration that not all skin is the same and some are more sensitive than others.  As a brand they have everything you need for a basic, yet thorough skincare system - Cleansers, Cleansing Balm, Toners, Eye Cream, Night Cream, Face Wash, Oils, Serums, hand wash, hand cream, masks, peels, supplements and spot treatments to name just a few and even their gift sets are designed with you in mind and are well worthy of looking at.


The Iconic Youth Serum(£35.50) I loved from the first use. I am total serum convert after having a facial a few years ago and being convinced that one is needed to be part of my skincare routine. This serum is said to integrate ten 'evidence based' active ingredients, with a formulation that is carefully designed to help prevent further skin ageing, perfect existing signs of ageing and help the skin to perform better. Essentially it designed to significantly improve lines & wrinkles, elasticity, radiance, hydration, dark spots and plumpness, resulting in a more youthful, healthy-looking skin. Now it isn't going to do all of these things overnight, so you need to use it regularly. I have been using it for a few months now and one major difference in my skin is the hydration levels, which at a result skin scan, saw my skin nowhere near as hydrated as it had been just 6 months before, so that is a huge plus point. I am one of those lucky people who hasnt yet got lots of lines and wrinkles and nor do I have dark spots, but my skin looks and feels so much better after using this serum.

MeruMaya Iconic Youth Serum

This Serum uses a formula which contains, minerals, stearidonic acid, stem cells, powerful anti-inflammatories, antioxidants and enhances beta defensins, endorphins, collagen and elastin while evening out dark spots and unevens skin tone and improving lines, elasticity, radiance, plumpness, smoothness. There is also Echium oil which is rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 (fatty acids) and is clinically tested to stimulate the production of dermal tissue proteins, soothe the skin and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restore smoothness and elasticity. 


With serums, for me the texture is quite important, this one is more of a rich balm than a runny gel which I really like. It is easy to apply to the skin and is a delight to massage in. It leaves no sticky residue behind and there is no evidence of it having been on and massaged into the skin other than the feeling afterwards of my skin left feeling just amazingly soft and smooth to the touch. I use it both morning and evening after cleansing and before adding my moisturiser and if there is any excess left, it makes a great lip balm for those dry and chapped lips.

  13. I have never heard of MeruMaya before. I too prefer serums that are balm like as opposed to runny gel texture - I will save this and have a closer look at when I am next shopping for a new serum. Thanks for reviewing

  35. I'd actually never heard of this brand. It sounds good. I've never used serums so far though. Maybe I should.

  36. This sounds pretty good, I like the serum that I'm using at the moment but it's one of the runny gel types. The fact that this is more of a balm sounds much more appealing. xx
