Merumaya Melting Cleansing Balm

Merumaya is a new range from a beauty industry ‘insider’, fiftysomething Maleka Dattu, who’s brought years of experience to her signature line – not just from sitting on the other side of the beauty ‘fence’ (in marketing), but as a sufferer of adult acne herself.  Merumaya just landed in John Lewis, and we very much like this easy-to-use cleansing balm, which combines natural oils of echium seed and sweet almond oils with age-defying ingredients:  it won’t exacerbate spots and breakouts, but does a brilliant job of melting make-up and leaving skin comfortable.  Just add water to emulsify, then swish away with her Daily Cleansing Cloths.  Fab smell, too.
