I like to think of myself as a wine connoisseur so when I was contacted a few weeks ago by Merlot Skincare to review their products, I couldn’t say no. Their name alone had me hooked (although I must admit Merlot is my least favorite wine). Each of the Merlot Skin Care products are formulated with grape seeds and help protect the skin against the signs of aging.
I was sent the Purifying Peel Off Mask, the Grape Seed Moisturizer and the Moonlight Radiance Night cream. I am addicted to peel off masks, so I tried this one first. The consistency of the mask is a bit runny so you have to make sure it’s applied evenly but once it’s on, it stays put. I left it on for 15 minutes… long enough for the mask to completely dry on my face. The mask peeled away beautifully, leaving me with soft, clean skin. What I liked about this mask is that my skin wasn’t dry afterwards. It was nicely moisturized. Next up, I tried the Moonlight Radiance night creme. This creme combines peptides and natural grape seed antioxidants to help fight wrinkles. I would definitely recommend this night creme to someone with dry skin. It’s a great night creme, that will improve your skin’s elasticity, but it felt too heavy for my normal/oily skin type. Last but not least, I tried the Grape Seed moisturizer. What I loved the most about this moisturizer it’s made with natural red grape seed polyphenols, contains SPF 15 and it’s packed with antioxidants. Who doesn’t love that!! I’ve been using this under my makeup and it works great. My skin is nicely moisturized (not oily) during the day. Overall, I was very pleased with all the products. My skin is more hydrated and clear ever since I started using them. The products work great for sensitive skin and non of the products are tested on animals. Always a plus!
