Merlot Grape Seed Skin Care Review and Giveaway

With my rough and dry skin, I have yet to find any beauty or skin products I really like or that even work at all for my skin or complexion. With that said, I think it was too be expected that I'd be slightly skeptical about trying some new products from Merlot Grape Seed skin care. I am always open to something new though, so I was game!

Merlot Grape Seed skin care uses nature's most powerful antioxidants in their various beauty and skin care products. Merlot skin care was launched in 2001 by Dr. Wayne Beckley. Each product has it's own unique formulation hat utilizes the power of the seeds in grapes, which have been proven to have several benefits to our complexion.

From their website:

"....Beckley chronicled over 70 research studies that indicated that drinking a couple glasses of red wine each day could be beneficial in warding off certain cancers and lowering cholesterol in the body. The reason: the antioxidants found in red grapes. Investigating further, Beckley found studies revealing the grape’s true power, their seeds. Research studies have shown that grape seed antioxidants are 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and nearly 25 times more powerful than Vitamin C. In 2001 Beckley launched Merlot Skin Care, utilizing the power of the grape seed in each unique formulation. Harnessing nature’s most powerful antioxidants, Merlot products work to fight free radicals – molecules caused by smoke, smog, pollution, stress, and UV rays – and protect skin against the signs of aging. From his first experiments in the garage to today, Beckley has built Merlot into a powerful line. Merlot Skin Care products have been praised for their high quality formulations and tremendous value. But the real secret is in the seed."

I was eager to try these products out as soon as I got them!

The first one I tried was the fragrance. I wear perfume every single day, and am always looking for new, yummy smelling scents. I love this perfume! It smells surprisingly good (like I said, I was skeptical!), and unlike some cheap perfumes you find in stores, you don't need to spray a lot on for it to be effective.

The second product I tried was the warm heart hand lotion. This lotion smells very good, and leaves my hands feeling soooo smooth! I use it multiple times a day because my hands get very very dry, especially during these harsh winter months.

The last product in the group I tried was the cleanser. I could not be happier with this product! I use it every single night before bed. I was skeptical at first, as I always am with new products like this. But it definitely did not disappoint! The smell is very very pleasant, and the texture of the cleanser is nice and smooth and light. It absorbs well into my skin to get in deep and work it's magic, and the after effect of it is truly amazing! My face was so unbelievably, amazingly smooth after the first use and is that way after every time I use each night. It also leaves my skin looking shiny and clear, which I love! I wold highly recommend any of these products, but especially this cleanser!
