Merit Great Skin Instant Glow Serum Review

Mark A. Carlson

As I strolled through Sephora, I saw this golden goodness enclosed within a beautiful glass bottle. I had to know more. After I got home, I did some research that quickly yielded results. I placed my online order. That’s how I came into possession of my Merit Great Skin Instant Glow Serum.

Merit Great Skin Instant Glow Serum

The Sephora website says this is “A lightweight, bi-phase serum that quickly hydrates and visibly plumps skin while helping to leave it calmer, visibly brighter, and more even-looking over time.”

Packaging Of The Merit Great Skin Instant Glow Serum

This serum is packaged in a frosted glass bottle, with a golden cap. It has a spray mechanism to dispense the product. The product name is written across the bottle in gold letters.

Formula Of The Merit Great Skin Instant Glow Serum

This is a liquid, bi-phase liquid formula that can be used by someone with normal, dry or combination. It addresses dryness, dullness, and uneven texture issues. This product is vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free.

The highlighted ingredients include Hyaluronic Acid, that targets multiple layers of skin to lock in hydration for all day moisture. Niacinamide that helps to visibly brighten skin and refines texture for a smooth, visibly glowing complexion. Lastly it also has Cacao Seed Extract which has caffeine-rich antioxidant that helps to stimulate blood flow for a plump effect. Information taken from the Sephora website.

My Experience

I use the Merit Great Skin Serum under my makeup. I have combination skin so I use one pump as instructed by the brand. Makeup goes on seamlessly. My skin has a dewy look. Its dewy but not oily. My skin has a healthy glow immediately after using this serum. It’s like a natural glow, that I love. I wear this serum by itself sometimes, followed by sunscreen on days that I do not want to wear any makeup. And love how it makes my skin feel and look.

I love that this serum has Niacinamide. Niacinamide works well for my sensitive skin. I also could not detect any fragrance. If you want a youthful glow, try this serum.

My only problem is the spray mechanism of the bottle. It squirts out product with force and dispenses too much product in my opinion. Hopefully Merit changes the packaging to something that works better.
