Product: Natural Grape Seed Skin Care
In Their Words:
History of Merlot Skin Care His friends call him Dr. Grapes, others often refer to him as Mr. Merlot. With his signature skin care line, Wayne Beckley, creator of Merlot Skin Care, is quickly gaining a new title as the “Father of Grape Seed Technology.”
More than 10 years ago while watching “60 Minutes,” Wayne Beckley first learned of “the French Paradox” – a report on people in France who consumed diets heavy in saturated fat, but who seemed to suffer virtually no heart disease. The report linked the findings to the drinking of red wine.
Intrigued, 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 have thick lines around my neck so I picked to review the Chin Up Neck Firming Cream. I have read the lines like mine are hereditary but I can always try 🙂 I used the cream in the morning and at night. It was smooth and easy to apply. It also smells great but not over powering. I can’t say a lot about the firming because I’m not at that age yet but it did help with the lines quite a bit! That’s saying a lot because I have tried a lot of products that were quite pricey to help with this and they did nothing. They are not gone but a lot less noticeable.
I also was sent some sample sized products to try. Merlot Lip Moisturizer, Grape Seed Moisturizer, & Grape Seed Eye Cream.
The lip moisturizer felt great in my lips. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know I LOVE lip balm so I was so happy they included this, I don’t go anywhere without it. This one felt like liquid satin on my lips.
I used the Grape Seed Eye Cream right before bed and my under eyes feel so much better in the morning.
I really enjoyed all the products and love that the products are all very affordable!
