Merumaya Retinol Resurfacing Treatment

The brand Merumaya is no secret to my blog and I am a huge fan of Maleka who is the brains behind all of the amazing products. Whenever something new comes into my hands I can never wait to give it a try and right now I have been using Merumaya retinol resurfacing treatment for some good few weeks now and it is no surprise that I love it.

What I like about this product is that there is an upfront and honest point about Vitamin A (Retinol), it is a known fact that it can often cause irritation and inflammation with the way it works and in order to ensure that this is a product that resurfaces the skin without making your face fall off, the use of speciality natural ingredients have been used to counter the negative effects but to also impart additional benefit.

So what does it do? This cream is designed to resurface, improve density, target fine lines, add moisture, aid blemish control and soothe the skin!  To do that it uses a whole host of ingredients which are as follows:

Vitamin A boosts cell turnover, peeling away top layers to even skin tone, thicken the new skin layers and effectively smooth out wrinkles. For all these reasons and its ability to regulate sebum, it shows superb results for sensitive acne skins and reduces the visibility of resulting scarring. However, because Retinol is unstable, Merumaya used Vitamin A Palmitate, a stabilised version with proven efficacy.
Aroleat Samphira imitates the beneficial effects of Retinol, but without causing skin irritation. Proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out the skin tone, regulate sebum and reduce inflammation. Used together with Vitamin A, Aroleat Samphira allows the Vitamin A to provide its many skin benefits without the associated inflammation.

Mediacalm - This is an active ingredient from the Boerhavia Root which has amazing calming properties. It works to restore softness to the skin and is intensely soothing.

Squalane is a natural component of the skin’s natural lipid barrier. We use Squalane from Olive Oil origin. This gives a luxurious feel to skin while supporting and reinforcing the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Matrixyl 3000 - This is a peptide blend with a powerful skin repairing effect. It restores key proteins including fibrillin which is broken down with ageing.  It works together perfectly with Vitamin A to improve deep wrinkles. 

Finally, there are two different weights of Hyaluronic Acid and this is said to have double the effect of retaining moisture in the epidermis and dermis while also activating the skin’s own beta defensins, that help to prevent the microbial invasion that causes spots.

As Retinol is one of those ingredients that you possibly know about but are not sure whether you need it or know how to use it. This Merumaya Retinol Resurfacing Treatment is, therefore, the perfect product to try because its blend of ingredients ensures you get the resurfacing and peeling action without the without the inflammation or irritation.


This is a cream that for the first few times I used it, I did feel a slight tingle but I have had no side effects, no skin irritations or breakouts. I apply the cream after cleansing and as the tube is pump action, I find just a few pumps is more than enough to cover my face. My skin, is definitely beginning to reap the benefits of this some 5 weeks later. I do suffer from dry and dehydrated skin and this is becoming less noticeable and whilst spots and breakouts are not an issue from which I suffer, dryness on my cheeks is and this has now almost completely cleared up. 

This Retinol Resurfacing Treatment is only to be used at night time as part of your skincare routine, after cleansing. Then the during the following day it is important to ensure you wear an SPF, which you should be anyway because retinol can make the skin more susceptible to UV damage and irritation, but please do protect your skin.
This Retinol Resurfacing Treatment retails for £33.50 and you can find it right here.

  14. Merumaya is a wonderful brand. They definitely don't get the recognition they deserve. Their Mud Marvels mask is amazing.
