Merit Skin Care Products And Instant Glow Serum

With Great Skin and its Instant Glow Serum, the minimalist beauty brand MERIT, recognised for providing premium products that are healthy for the body, skin, and planet, makes its debut in skincare. MERIT has become a leader in the oversaturated makeup space in less than two years by challenging the established beauty playbook. They’re now bringing the same level of deliberateness and excellence to skincare.

About the brand 

In Hollywood circles, Merit Beauty is a well-known brand. The curated collection of minimalist cosmetics has been endorsed by editors, supermodels, and celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Mandy Moore.

The brand has only introduced products that will remain on vanities for years to come, avoiding the industry’s cycle of constant newness and voluminous SKU counts. Following the introduction of Signature Lip and Bronze Balm, both of which became #1 clean makeup bestsellers at Sephora US and Canada, Great SkinTM is only MERIT’s third launch since the brand’s debut in January 2021. 


Over 70% of MERIT’s products are currently the #1 bestsellers in the clean category at Sephora, demonstrating that their deliberate approach not only leads to better products but also better results. 

Great Skin Instant Glow Serum

So far, the brand has only created makeup, though it is frequently infused with skincare ingredients. However, the Great Skin Instant Glow Serum is Merit’s first foray into the skincare market. The serum is intended to be used as the final skincare step before applying The Minimalist Perfecting Complexion Foundation and Concealer Stick to ensure a glowing canvas.


MERIT’s Great Skin Instant Glow Serum is a lightweight, bi-phase formula that hydrates and plumps skin instantly for a smooth, glass-like appearance while also leaving skin calmer, brighter, and more even over time. After four weeks of use, 97% of clinical trial participants reported that their skin felt softer and more moisturized, as well as more hydrated and radiant.

MERIT has a well-earned reputation for creating products that do not cause allergic reactions while also improving the look and feel of skin, so Great Skin is a natural evolution in its unwavering commitment to safe and effective products. MERIT spent nearly five years perfecting Great Skin and tweaking the formula 52 times to ensure its entry into skincare was truly distinct. As a result, the product smoothes and brightens the complexion without relying too heavily on oils, which have become common in clean skincare but are often irritating to sensitive skin types.


Great Skin will improve the health of your skin barrier with regular use. The main ingredients are four types of hyaluronic acid: niacinamide, cacao seed, and Japanese goldthread root. Niacinamide brightens and smoothes the skin texture, while hyaluronic acid locks in and attracts long-lasting hydration. Cacao seed contains caffeine, which fights dullness and promotes plumpness, while Japanese Goldthread soothes skin. Great Skin, like all Merit products, is clean, vegan, and Leaping Bunny-certified; the brand avoided 73 potentially acne-triggering ingredients when developing this serum.
