Merlot {Review & Giveaway}


About Merlot:
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.

Fun fact...
Merlot was featured on the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda!

What I got to review:

Merlot Divine

Sparkling fragrance inspired by the fruits of the vine. Bursting with citrus followed by a floral bouquet, top notes give way to a light and woodsy musk. Appealing to refined senses, Merlot Divine is a perfectly fresh fragrance to last all day. Merlot Divine is packaged in a tall glass bottle that can be reused as a single-bloom vase.

What I love about this product:
-It truly has a fresh citrus smell with a mix of floral. This frangance is unlike any perfume I have smelled in the past. 
-Fragrance smell last awhile on the body (I put it on my wrists and neck).
-The bottle can be later used as a vase. LOVE this because I enjoy to up-cycle.
-The perfume is made in the USA.
-No animal testing.
-My boyfriend approves the smell :)

Grape Seed Moisturizer

Creme de Vin is made of natural red grape seed polyphenols. Its sensational antioxidant properties help inhibit the aging process. Merlot’s signature product absorbs quickly, and works as the perfect primer before applying makeup or facing the day. This ultra-gentle, lightweight formula does so much more than just leave skin feeling silky smooth. This moisturizer works to fight against free radicals – the particles that contribute to the signs of premature aging. With an SPF, it’s designed for daily use and can be used as a primer before applying make-up.


What I love about this product:
-It's fragrance free. I hate strong smelling lotion on my face.
-Moisturizer doesn't make my face feel oily. That's a plus! I have been putting this on my face and neck morning/neck. 
-The cream is a pretty light purple. Not the typical white!
-It contains SPF 15 and I am a big believer in sun protection.
-Has a powerful antioxidant in the cream (red grape seeds).
-The cream is made in the USA.
-No animal testing.
