Mèreadesso skincare review

I was very kindly sent a set of Mèreadesso skincare a while back by their lovely PR, and after using their products for the last 3 months I am ready to write my review!

Mèreadesso is higher end Canadian brand developed by former cosmetics executive Linda Stephenson. Linda has worked at top cosmetics brands such as Estee Lauder, MAC, and Mary Kay for over 2 decades.
A jet setting career and a busy family life meant that Linda no longer had the time to put 16 different products on her face so she put her Chemistry and Botany degrees to use and set out to develop a one step program which would address all our skin's needs.
For the past 3 months I have put their Face + Neck Cleanser and All-In-One Moisturiser through vigorous testing in hot and dry Kona, and cold and humid Vancouver, and the products have really endeared themselves to me.
 Mèreadesso Face + Neck Cleanser
"A non-foaming all-in-one makeup remover, mask, scrub and toner that will even conquer waterproof mascara.
The globally sourced ingredient blend includes botanical extracts and vitamins. Effective as a deep cleanser but gentle enough for use around the eye area. After rinsing, your face will be free of residue and perfectly prepped for our All-In-One Moisturizer. Comes with a specially designed cleansing cloth (to be used with cleanser every time) in a reusable plastic pouch that’s great for holding everything from the cleanser to makeup brushes."
Damage: $45 for 120ml
Nunu sez: This is a non-foaming, cleansing milk type cleanser. I found it to be very gentle on my skin and left my face feeling very soft and smooth instead of dry and stripped of all moisture. During Winter, my face usually feels quite tight after cleansing but this product left my skin slightly moisturised which is quite unheard of for a cleanser.
I like that the product is house in a handy air tight pump bottle, it disperses easily and there's no more fumbling with flip caps!
I really like the micro-fibre cloth included with the cleanser! It exfoliates and removes any residual makeup that the cleanser doesn't remove. Looky how it performed against lipstick, waterproof eyeliner, waterproof mascara and foundation!

Mèreadesso All-In-One Moisturiser
"A single-step solution for your face and neck full of incentive to toss every other moisturizer, toner, serum, primer, day cream, night cream and eye cream you own. Talk about minimizing packaging.
This lightweight gel-lotion’s globally sourced ingredients include 16 botanical extracts, 8 minerals and enzymes and over 20 antioxidants. Easy to apply, quick to absorb and impossible to give up because the longer you use it, the less you’ll need it."
Damage: $120 for 50ml
Nunu sez:  This was only moisturiser I took with me to Hawaii. Yep, no toners, no eyecream, no specialised serums, just this one moisturiser because I really wanted put its claims of being an "all-in-one" to the test.
Well whaddaya know. My skin is brighter, redness has been reduced, and I swear my pores are tighter. I don't really have any wrinkles to speak of so I can't really attest to whether or not it does anything for wrinkles.
The formula is light, non-greasy, and fast absorbing with a runny gel-like texture. Unfortunately there is SPF so you will need to layer it with a sunscreen. Like the cleanser, it also comes in a vacuum pump.
Whilst this moisturiser alone was enough for the Summer months, now that Winter has come and indoor heating is on full blast I need something richer for the evenings, however, I've continued to use this as my day moisturiser as it really saves me time in the mornings when I am always in a rush.
There's only two cons of this moisturiser is the smell and the price. To me the smell came off as being very "green" and "earthy". It's not the most pleasant smelling moisturiser out there but I got used to the scent over time. The price is a bit harder to get over but the 50ml bottle has lasted me well over 3 months with continuous daily use and the time saved and the results are quite worth it.
At the moment Mèreadesso is only available for purchase online at Mèreadesso.com. Also available is the Beautiful Body Balm ($54 for 200ml) and the Lip Treats which come in clear and tinted ($28 for 2 sticks of 1.2g each.

  3. Phew that is pricey for the quantity, but I guess it's well worth it actually if it does enable you to replace all those other products! Did you actually use it as an eye cream too?

  5. Yon-Ka are one of those high-end French skincare brands that have been on my radar for a long time, but one that I've never really explored or tried out properly. I was kindly sent these two to remedy that problem, et voilà. Here's what I thought about them.Mike Walden Review

Healthy skin professionals perform facials and skin health management medicines, for example dermabrasion and facial purging, to enhance an assortment of skin conditions, incorporating rosacea, drying out and wrinkles, created by maturing and sun harm. They assess and prompt customers on healthy skin medications and results, making referrals to dermatologists as required. Healthy skin professionals' work obligations incorporate keeping work zones and apparatuses, for example amplifying lights, clean and sterile. onestopshoppinglist.com
