When creating this product, I imagined you, like me, walking up the stairs aroung midnight, absolutely pooped and thinking 'I wish I had taken my make up off at 9pm when I came up for a wee. All I want to do now is fall into bed'

What could I do to make your cleanse more pleasurable and more practical/time saving, without sacrificing effectiveness and efficientcy?

Cleansing balm that squeezes out of a tube so, easy and portable. One that does not need warming in the fingers, takes a lot to spread over the face and to remove all residue. That saved 45 precious seconds on a cleans and in a year that adds up to over half a day of sleep time or if you wear face make up, allows you to do a double cleanse in the same time as current.

So, it had to come out of the tube and easilsy massage into the skin - that is where the 'Melting' bit came in. It had to be super effective and hydrating which is where the Sweet Almond Oil, Echium Oil, Mangosteen came in. It had to be easy to remove and not leave a dry or waxy or oily residue but had to feel soft and velvety. That's where the addition of water to turn into a milk came in.

It is designed to be used with Daily Cleansing Cloths but if you are in a hurry, a bit worse for wear, do not have a clean cloth to hand or feeling a bit lazy, you can rinse it off and your skin will feel great.

Next for pleasure. I wanted you to come out of the bathroom with an...'aah! that was not so bad' So I added my signature essence blend to further engage your senses and it has ingredients that are said to uplift confidence too.

Finally price, I had to be able to do it and ensure that mine not only compared favourably on performance, but that it would be at least half the price of leading cleansing balms on the market and it is about 40% of the cost of some popular ones.

I hope you love it.




Customer Reviews

I love the signature Merumaya scentReview by DesZeLL
Another HG cleanser of mine. I hate to use this as first cleanser, but this is really good for first cleanser. Dissolve makeup like a great cleansing oil does. But this is balm, which is my favourite kind of cleanser. It's gel-ish balm, not like Clinique or The Body Shop balm that is buttery. So it will only melt after you massage it. But I still prefer using this as a second cleanser or morning cleanser because the scent is just so calming.
I love the signature Merumaya scent.
It emulsify easily, but as usual, when you're rinsing balm from your face, you need to use a lot of water. (Posted on 18/01/2017)
AMAZING FIND!Review by Sylv
I discovered this product when I was bought a gift from another beauty company and I ordered a sample size to try and I'm so glad I did! It beats anything I've EVER used to take off my make and leaves your skin clean and moisturised into the bargain. I love it so much I bought myself the larger size and 3 more for family members as Christmas presents! A definite find and worthy of 5***** (Posted on 27/12/2016)

FantasticReview by Lindsay
I received a 25ml sample size in Pink Parcel. This cleanser removed my foundation and eye makeup easily and left my skin feeling moisturised but not oily. The fragrance is so nice. I'll definitely be purchasing the full sized product and would love to try other items from the range. I'm so glad I've been introduced to this brand. (Posted on 13/10/2016)

Fantastic!! Review by eighties elle
I chose this in a beauty box subscription and oh my goodness im in love! So luxurious and melts your makeup away effortlessly! The smell reminds me of a spa treatment and leaves your skin hydrated and glowing! (Posted on 08/10/2016)
Wonderful and smells lovelyReview by Natasha
This is the product that got me hooked first. The cleanser is absolutely fantastic and removes all makeup quickly, easily and feels and smells luxurious. I was amazed how little of this cleanser is needed and how easily it removes all makeup. It also smells fantastic and makes you feel like you are in your own aromatherapy spa and is just so relaxing and the smell lingers and you just can't help but relax and take in the glorious fragrance. Thank You Merumaya x (Posted on 16/05/2016)
Best Cleansing Balm!Review by Nadira V
Nothing else beats this product - my skin always improves it's moisture levels when I use Melting Cleansing Balm. Its a great product to double cleanse as skin never feels stripped of natural oils. I love the plumped up feeling after each use and equally love the hydrated quality to my skin - in the summer I can sometimes get away with no moisturiser, just a spf and I'm good to go. Great cleanser to take on holiday too, no fuss at all! (Posted on 06/05/2016)
WonderfulReview by Jules
A must have for feeling super clean at the end of the day. This glides on the skin, leaving a silky smooth feeling and the smell is just divine. No turning back - once used you will be hooked! (Posted on 19/10/2015)
Favourite Cleansing BalmReview by Annie Writes Beauty
I tried the melting cleansing balm for the first time, over a year ago and since then I've tried a range of their products. The Melting Cleansing Balm does exactly what it says on the tube while leaving skin clean, soft and prepped for the rest of your skin care. It also has that familiar Merumaya scent that I love. I wouldn't use anything else having tried this. (Posted on 11/10/2015)
Fantastic!Review by Cynthia
I purchased this balm and the facial clothes and love them both. The balm smells gorgeous and leaves my skin feeling so soft. Also have the toner and mask - I'm a convert!! (Posted on 29/09/2015)
Amazing!!Review by Tanya
I suffer from very sensitive skin and breakouts, and found Merumaya products to work so well. Have been taking the supplements and using the eye makeup remover, and serum and my skin has never been better. Highly recommend ALL the products in the range. I'm sure my fine lines and wrinkles seem to be decreasing (Posted on 23/04/2015)
A pleassure to useReview by jan
A pleasure to use, I've mature combination skin, Oilier in summer, so am using this and the luxury face wash. Please introduce larger tubes! I've always shied away from anything perfumed as my skin is also sensitive ,but love this it's more an essential oil sort of smell, fresh and clean. (Posted on 03/03/2015)
Texture of the balm is just amazingReview by Louisa Hunter
Have just bought this from John Lewis on-line. I had done some research on line which the best cleansing balms were, and I kept seeing this one. So I bought it, and starting using it yesterday, I also got the flannels which are also great. The smell is divine, and the texture of the balm is just amazing, my skin feels just fab. I will be using this from now on. I'm now going to get a few more things in the range. (Posted on 04/02/2015)
Love this cleanserReview by Jane
Love this cleanser. Feels really nice, smells lovely and is affordable. Really works on my combination/prone to occasional break outs skin. However, it's a shame the price has already increased from £14.50 to £15.50 already for 100ml. Really hope it doesn't keep increasing. (Posted on 04/02/2015)
Love thisReview by Christabel Ng
Love this, on my second tube! (Posted on 30/01/2015)
Amazing cleanserReview by Stania
Amazing cleanser that I have been using for a while now with great results. The only suggestion I would now have is to introduce larger size so that I do not have to buy it so often... for the big fans like me that would be a great plus! (Posted on 17/01/2015)
LusciousReview by D Nelson
Just cleansed with the luscious melting cleansing balm, that scent always puts me in such a good mood! (Posted on 21/10/2014)
I have an amazing skin now! Review by Marina T
This and Luxury Facial Wash saved my life! I have an acne-prone, sensitive, combination skin. Tried so many products and they were either too harsh for my skin or not effective against acne! Double-cleanse with these two products (I also use Manual Cleansing Brush with the Facial Wash) and I have an amazing skin now! I never write reviews but thought these products helped me so hopefully will help someone else too! (Posted on 21/10/2014)
Flawless skin!Review by Priya Joshi
Recently sampled the Melting Cleansing Conditioner and Iconic Youth Serum, both of which I love and picked up from John Lewis whilst on my travels in Glasgow yesterday - couldn't wait a day without them - sink straight into my skin, which I can feel working overnight and wake up to ''see-through" flawless skin! (Posted on 26/09/2014)
Absolutely love this cleansing balm! Review by Noddy
Absolutely love this cleansing balm! The scent, the texture, the softness of my skin after use are all reasons to continue using this product. Im hooked! (Posted on 28/08/2014)

It removes makeup beautifullyReview by Nicola Aldred
I have tried many cleansers in the past,but none as good as this.It removes makeup beautifully and your skin feels very soft and comfortable after use,not at all drying. (Posted on 20/06/2014)
Highly recommended !Review by Kirsty Chard
I was given this by a friend, I immediately LOVED this product. Wonderful velvety texture and very effective, it does feel like it's gently melting your make up off. I've tried lots of high end cleansers that are considerably pricier than this one but this is the best I've tried by miles. Both my teenage daughters have started using it and I've even started buying it for friends - the serum is great too by the way . Highly recommended ! (Posted on 20/06/2014)
Really lovely cleanser Review by Carly Gilbert
Really lovely cleanser that literally melts on your skin & removes make up gently...must get the cleansing cloths to try! Loving this new product range (Posted on 20/06/2014)
Skin felt silky smoothReview by Kelly Aylward
Skin felt silky smooth with no drying at all, great feeling afterwards (Posted on 20/06/2014)
brighter cleansed skinReview by Jessica Anderson
A little goes a very long way, immediate sensation is the beautiful smell which creates essence of a beauty parlour in your own bathroom! Skin felt cleansed and still subtle without that squeaky clean feel factor which is only a sign the skins oils have been stripped back too far? Your cleanser on the other hand smells invigorating, minimal effort yet a brighter cleansed skin with immediate appearance of better skin tone and texture. (Posted on 20/06/2014)

Feel of skin after was great – soft, smooth, not tight (Posted on 20/06/2014)
