MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Enriched Moisturising Facebase
MeMeMe are an affordable beauty brand with a boutique appeal. The inspiration behind the brand are steeped with historical references with themes from the ancient Greeks, moving onto the Renaissance period, then finishing with a Bohemian embodiment. I tested their Seventh Heaven Enriched Moisturising Facebase, which is described as being a rich but lightweight moisturiser to nourish and hydrate skin whilst. It contains active extracts that brighten, smooth and even out skin tone. What I like about this moisturiser is that it doesn’t simply keep skin hydrated but works to achieve lasting benefits to your skin, such as tackling discolouration. I really like the appearance of the pot that the cream comes in. It’s made of a thick, frosted glass, the frostiness of which adds to the boutique experience you should get when using the product. It’s reassuringly sturdy too. I think the swirly cream and white pattern on the box is where the Renaissance inspiration has been injected.
The actual cream is a very light, pale yellow coloured cream with a strong fragrance of oranges. This isn’t by accident - MeMeMe have purposely scented the cream with lemon, orange, lime and mandarin. Although the fragrance is artificial, I don’t mind it in this case as it’s very pleasant. I would describe the texture as like that of a thick lotion, rather than a full-bodied cream, which I prefer as it’s lovely and light on the skin. It contains Shea Butter, Vitamin A and Beta-Carotene, which is probably why I feel that this facebase does an ace job at moisturising.
I not only apply this in the morning and evening but also before makeup application, since it acts as a primer too. Whilst it doesn’t increase longevity of makeup (nor does it claim to), it did create a brightened complexion and made my skin cushiony soft and perfectly primed. This face cream is not as expensive as you might think -£15 for 30ml - and I recommend you give it a go if you want added hydrated and radiance to your skin.
