Merlot Skincare | Review and Giveaway*

Hello my beautiful friends! Today I have a bit of a different review for you all, it consists of a GIVEAWAY! Yippee! 
I’m so excited to share with you all this amazing, affordable skincare line! So without further adieu, let’s get started!! 

Merlot Skincare

What the company says: “Every Merlot product boasts the benefits of natural grape seed antioxidants. Merlot products are free of fragrance and great for sensitive skin. Merlot products are made in the USA and Merlot conducts no animal testing.”

In 2001 Beckley launched Merlot Skin Care, utilizing the power of red grape seeds in each unique formulation. Harnessing nature’s most powerful antioxidants, Merlot products work to protect skin against the signs of aging and to fight free radicals – the harmful molecules caused by smoke, smog, pollution, stress, and UV rays.  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. The real secret?  It’s in the seed!

In 2011 Merlot Skin Care was named a “Breakout Brand” by Global Cosmetics International.  Today Merlot Skin Care is a trusted brand for professional make-up artists and models and is recommended by dermatologists.  Merlot’s good-for-you philosophy maintains that customers can look like a million bucks without spending that much. – Merlot Skincare Website

My Thoughts

Grape Seed Eye Cream

  • The consistency of this eye cream is unlike any I’ve tried, it’s thicker and a more gel like thickness. 
  • Because the consistency is thicker, it does take longer to absorb to the skin.
  • Once it has completely absorbed, my eyes immediately feel moisturized and my skin feels “tighter.” 
  • I don’t suffer from undereye puffiness, so I can’t really put my two cents in about that. 
  • I do however, suffer from horrible undereye circles. I can’t say I’ve noticed a huge difference, but they do look a bit lighter. Hopefully with continued use, they diminish a bit more.

Moonlight Radiance Night Cream

  • This night cream is very lightweight and doesn’t make my skin oily. 
  • I don’t have many visible wrinkles, but I do have one line on my forehead that I swear to you, it is not as deep as it used to be. I can barely feel it! This alone amazes me! 
  • My skin has been super soft, smooth, and supple since I’ve started using this night cream. 
  • Both of these products have a light smell of a citrus-y grape, the smell SO good!! 

I was also sent a deluxe sample of the Grape Seed Moisturizer, as you can see this is a light purple moisturizer, very lightweight and with SPF 15. I have finished this, as you can see above, and I really enjoyed how my skin felt afterward.
