Mèreadesso®

Birchbox Breakdown

For us, traveling used to by synonymous with overpacking. But after a little self-reflection, we realized that our shoes do not, in fact, need a suitcase all to themselves. Let the downsizing begin. Developed by Linda Stephenson, a former beauty exec with a science-based background, this moisturizer streamlines your skincare routine and enriches skin with natural enzymes and antioxidants. This travel-size multitasker also functions as a makeup primer, toner, and eye cream, so it’s perfect for tossing in your carry on—with plenty of room to spare.

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.

Way better than expected
Sampled

I was very pleasantly surprised by this product. I wouldn't use it as a daily moisturizer but it worked well when I used it for going out. Kept my skin matte & my makeup stayed in place the whole time me. The priming aspect of it was pretty good as well, didn't totally mask my pores but did improve them enough for me to like the effects of the product.

Oily Result
Sampled

This moisturizer feels nice going on, however, after application, my skin looked oily and very shiny. I like that it is multi-purpose, it just made my skin so gross looking.

Interesting Concept
Sampled

It says it's all in one. I haven't used it long enough to know if it really works. My skin didn't feel any different after a couple of uses. In my estimation it seemed like just a moisturizer.

Great for travel
Sampled

The packaging and multi-purpose usage make this ideal for traveling; I will definitely consider purchasing before my next trip. I don't like the moisturizer as much as some others, but I would definitely use for a week or two when I am away and don't want to bring a larger jar.

Love

This stuff is amazing. Lightweight moisturizer, and it really works great as a primer too! Not sure if consider it a great eye cream but I definitely love it.

"Old" smell, but seems to work well
Sampled

I couldn't get over the smell of this sample; it kind of reminded me of baby powder, which I don't care for. I don't really like to put strong-smelling things on my face, but this did seem to work as a moisturizer and primer. I did notice, though, after 3 days of use that I started to break out. This product was the only change I made to my skin care routine, but I'm not sure if it was the cause.

This is a pretty good lotiony thing
Sampled

I put this on my face and it worked really well. It smelled good and it wasn't oily or anything, but I don't feel like it should be quite as expensive as it is.

moisturizer

I travel often for work and this was perfect amount for a couple of days. Cannot determine how effective the product will be but like the idea of packing less products when traveling.

Good, nothing really stood out.

This is a good moisturizer, but there's nothing special about it. It moisturized and smelled pretty nice.

Absolutely perfect for travel
Sampled

I wish this product existed when I was traveling through Norway for two weeks with only a small carry-on bag. I was skeptical that one product could serve as eye cream, facial moisturizer, primer, etc., but I'm really pleased with this. My eyes and face felt moisturized even in the harsh winter air, and though it stung a bit when applied to my eyes, it didn't irritate them. The packaging is amazing for air travel if you don't want to check bags. This will replace three different products in my travel bag.
