A few weeks ago I had the honour and great pleasure of meeting Linda, the founder and CEO of Mereadesso. If you haven’t heard of Mereadesso, it is a Canadian brand that emphasizes one-step skincare. It’s star product is the All-in-One Moisturizer, which replaces toner, serum, eye cream, moisturizer, and all the in-between steps in your skincare regime.
Held at Cafe Medina, one of my favourite brunch spots in the city, we sipped on their signature lavendar lattes, snacked on waffles, and learned about skincare.
Linda, the creator of Mereadesso, has a background in biology, chemistry, and botany, and has experience working in product development for Johnson & Johnson, MAC and Estee Lauder. She created Mereadesso because she felt that skincare had become too complicated with too many steps, and women, in their busy daily lives, are looking for time savings in any form.
The All-in-One Moisturizer in action:
In addition to the All-in-One Moisturizer, Mereadesso also offers the Face + Neck Cleanser, which is a non-foaming light cleansing cream that acts as a makeup remover, cleanser, exfoliator (when used with the accompanying facial cloth), and mini mask. Linda demonstrated the efficacy of the Face + Neck Cleanser for removing makeup by using caked-on waterproof mascara as the victim for removal. You apply the Face + Neck Cleanser on a dry face, massage, and add a bit of water and remove it with the facial cloth. The result is a clean and smooth feeling face that’s free of makeup, grease, and dirt.
Mereadesso has a Body Balm, which is a non-greasy all over body lotion, hand cream and foot cream. Lastly, for lip balm fanatics out there, Mereadesso has the Lip Treats, both in clear and with tints.
Detailed reviews of the All-in-One Moisturizer, Face + Neck Cleanser, and Lip Treats will follow in the next couple of weeks! So far… I’m loving the results.
