Review: Mereadesso Lip Treats in Clear, Sheer Pink and Sheer Burgundy

Mereadesso Lip Treat review

Lastly, for lip balm fanatics out there, Mereadesso has the Lip Treats, both in clear and with tints. I’ve been using this since I received it and I absolutely love how it feels on my lips. I really like that it lasts a long time and doesn’t just get eaten up by my lips, but at the same time still provides hydrating and not simply a protective layer. Chock full of awesome ingredients like evening primrose, grapeseed oil, coconut and sunflower oil, and vitamins C and E, my lips feel healthier after each use.

The Tinted Lip Treats are also great because they come out clear and then intensify via layering. You get 2 Lip Treats in each package (for C$28) because we all want to keep one in our bag and one on our vanity. Swatches of the Tinted Lip Treats in Sheer Pink and Sheer Burgundy are below.

Lazy person’s skincare routine: Mereadesso Face + Neck Cleanser, and All-in-one Moisturizer

Mereadesso face neck cleanser and moisturizer review

I previously wrote about meeting Mereadesso founder Linda at brunch. I’ve finally had the time to test out these products since I had to cut everything else out of my regime in order to take these to the true test of all-in-one products. Basically by using Mereadesso, you can cut out everything in your regime and use two products. Normally my skincare regime has anywhere from 6-10 steps, but this will cut it down to just two.

Mereadesso Face + Neck Cleanser

Mereadesso face neck cleanser review

The Mereadesso Face + Neck Cleanser is a light cream cleanser that is supposed to be a makeup remover, facial cleanser, and when used with the accompanying cloth, an exfoliator and face mask. I was extremely confused when I first started using this product because it came out as a super light milk. I used approximately 8-10 pumps of this product to cover my whole face, neck, and also had some left over to rub around my face to remove makeup.

I really dislike this cleanser because I found I had to rub really hard to get all of my makeup off, which was not good for my eye area or my skin in general. Even with vigorous rubbing, it didn’t remove all of my base makeup and left a good chunk of it for my toner to pick up (I used a toner in the first few days to test the efficacy of the cleanser). Also at 8-10 pumps, it didn’t seem like it would last a very long, which is tragic because this cleanser costs a hefty $45.

I wouldn’t recommend getting this, but there is a travel size available for purchase if you want to try this without the commitment.

Mereadesso All-in-One Moisturizer

Mereadesso All-in-One Moisturizer review

The Mereadesso All-in-One Moisturizer is a toner, serum, moisturizer and primer in one; I used this day and night after cleansing my face with the Face + Neck Cleanser. It has the texture of a light, milky cream. I use one pump on my face during the day (otherwise it takes a while longer to absorb and my makeup doesn’t adhere), and two pumps for the face and neck at night.

In terms of its moisturizing benefits, I found that it was slightly lacking. I have normal, somewhat dehydrated skin, and after 2 weeks of using this, I noticed that my skin has become more and more dehydrated, to the point that it is starting to flake in certain areas. My foundation wasn’t applying and adhering properly and my skin just wasn’t doing well in general, so I added a hydrating serum to the regime to see how it would help, and it did. A hydrating serum plus the All-in-One Moisturizer was perfect for my dehydrated skin. Overall, I felt my skin was healthier and more normalized.

With the hydrating serum, the All-in-One Moisturizer also became a really good primer for makeup. I found that my foundation applied more smoothly and didn’t settle into pores as much. My skin felt more balanced, so I didn’t have to blot as early as I used to.

Unfortunately, the All-in-One Moisturizer wasn’t so all-in-one for me, but I did like using it with another serum. If you have normal, combination, or oily skin, you should look into trying this product. Anyone like me with dehydrated or dry skin can also use this but best it’d be paired with a hydrating serum. Priced at $120 for 50mL, it should last you 4 months with daily use.

Simplify your skincare routine with Mereadesso

Mereadesso

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.

Cafe Medina

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.
