I love Winter time. The crisp cool air, pretty snow and cuddling up with my family on the couch drinking hot chocolate.
My skin though isn't a fan! I battle dry skin and the breakouts for curing the dry skin all winter long. And no I don't just mean my face! My arms, legs and even feet suffer the wrath of dry skin.
I learn over the years using top quality products helps to keep this dryness under control.
One of those companies is Merlot. I've used the lotion several years ago and couldn't get over both the smell and the results.
You may not know this but red grape seeds have an all natural powerful antioxidants that help with anti-aging. Grape seeds are 50 times more powerful then Vitamin E and 25 times more powerful then vitamin C.
Merlot Skin care is a family run business based in the USA. Their products are NOT tested on animals and they are Parben Free.
Getting excited about Merlot yet? Well that is nothing, they don't just stop at keep the skin on our face healthy they offer products for every inch of our bodies! Bye bye dry skin and hello fresh smooth skin!
I was able to try 3 products:
Winter Weather equals dry skin! I need something to give my skin back its natural moister and the Merlot Grape Seed Moisturizer does just that! It leaves my face feeling fresh and never greasy. The 15 SPF adds a little extra protection to my already sensitive skin.
You rub this into your neck and face until it absorbed. It can be used everyday and works almost instantly to give your face a smoother feel.
This smells amazing! I mean really really good! After taking a shower my bathroom still smells like it an hour later. I love that it uses both grapes and aloe to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. It gets down into skin to give it an all out conditioned feeling.
And it lathers up really nicely. A little bit goes a long way.
Last but not least is the face mask. I wear make up most days and my face tends to take the brunt of it. My pores can get a clogged up yucky feeling. I need to do weekly masks to get it all out.
The Merlot Clay mask is perfect for this. It draws out set in dirt and gives my skin that deep down clean it needs. I simply let it dry and then use warm water to wash it off.
Easy to do with great results.
The three products I reviewed are only 3 of many! I am so impressed with Merlot and can't believe how amazing my skin feels after only a few days of use.
