The same month that Ipsy gave me LeeAni Eco, Birchbox sent their own version of a 3 in 1 product in the form of Mèreadesso® All-In-One Moisturizer.
Both of these are sold as a multi-tasking/3 in 1 type of product. However, these two could not be any more different.
Mèreadesso® All-In-One Moisturizer promises to be a moisturizer, eye cream, and primer in one. This is a slight difference from the LeeAni claim of being a toner, serum, moisturizer.
Also different – the price. Mèreadesso® All-In-One Moisturizer will cost you $120.00 USD.
When we first encountered the iPhone, we learned that a great all-in-one product could change our lives forever. Mèreadesso brings this principle to skincare with their simple one-step moisturizer, which also functions as a toner, primer, and eye cream. With benefits ranging from redness reduction to antiaging properties, this multitasker is tailor-made to streamline your routine, all while nourishing skin with a host of natural enzymes and antioxidants.
How it Works
This aloe-based gel contains 16 botanical extracts, 8 enzymes and minerals, and over 20 antioxidants chosen for their purity and effectiveness—adding up to one powerful product. A combination of caffeine and apple and cucumber extracts contributes to the all-in-one moisturizer’s refreshing cooling and tightening sensation.
How to Use
Morning and night, after cleansing, gently apply one pump of product to your face and neck. Apply a second pump if skin is extra dry, but remember, this serum is potent: A single bottle should last 2-3 months with daily use.
Cool package, even for a sample. The opening is so tiny, you are able to really control how much product is dispensed.
Okay, so let’s break down the claims-
1) Does it moisturize? – YES. Very very very well. The formula is very creamy and although it’s not thick, it is very moisturizing.
2) Does it double as an eye cream? – Yes, because of its thick consistency it makes for a really pleasant eye cream.
3) Does it prime? – Meh. Sorta. Here’s the deal; if you are wearing a BB cream or are going without foundation of any sort, this will provide a nice finish. However, if you are looking to be a Pow! Hottie! with flawless primed skin, you will need another primer. For me, this didn’t do as good of a job preparing my face for a foundation as my beloved Smashbox does.
HOWEVER, what it does slightly do is even out your skin tone when you are wearing it. The cream itself is slightly green tinted, so it combats the redness in your skin. Win!
Additionally, because it is so moisturizing, it can leave you sort of dewy looking Which is great for me, I love that. However, it doesn’t work super well under a liquid foundation. Also, if you are on the more oily side, you may not like to do the dew.
Would I purchase?
Would it surprise you if I told you I’m thinking of saving my Birchbox points for this?
I think this is a great product, even if the priming aspect is lacking. I think it would be a great summer product if you do lots of outdoorsy things. I am picturing it during beach and camping trips.
