MERUMAYA's Iconic youth serum

I personally love MERUMAYA's best selling serum, which is a must-have for any skin savvy lady. It integrates ten evidence-based active ingredients, with a formulation carefully designed to help prevent further skin ageing.

It perfects existing signs of skin ageing, helps the skin to perform better  and it protects from ageing factors. The list is endless as it improves radiance and luminosity, reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles, it also improves moisture and elasticity. Integrating the MERUMAYA Signature Essence Blend reputed to uplift confidence levels with a sensually silky texture and clinically tested active ingredient, Iconic Youth Serum ™ engages multiple senses to provide a more pleasurable experience while delivering immediate and long-term results. Oh yes, we do like the sound of that. £34.50 (30ml).

Not only is this a gorgeous unisex scent but the packaging is just fab, exquisitely wrapped in the brand's iconic box and tied with a beautiful grosgrain ribbon.
