Merlot Grape Seed Skin Care Review and Giveaway

It doesn't matter how much us women try to kid ourselves, we are always on the hunt for the next best thing in skin care! I'm personally drawn to bright and shiny containers, ones that smell really good, and most importantly, ones that keep my skin moisturized the best and the longest because I have a whole lot of tattoos to take care of every single day!

One day while online, I discovered the web site for Merlot Grape Seed Skin Care. I now know that I am pretty behind the times with this but I had not heard of grape seed being used in skin care prior to finding their web site. 
To check out Merlot's web site click here, it's worth your time, I swear!

"About Merlot Skin Care: 

Since 2001 Merlot Skin Care has delivered skin care innovations to help women look and feel their best. Our good-for-you philosophy maintains that customers can look like a million bucks without spending that much. The Merlot Skin Care line utilizes the power of natural grape seed antioxidants to fight free radicals - the particles generated by smog, pollution, and harmful UV rays that routinely damage our skin.

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. Beckley launched Merlot Skin Care, utilizing the power of grape seed in each unique formulation. 

Merlot is a family-run business based in Texas. All products are made in the USA."

Merlot sent me their amazing 100% Pure Grape Seed Oil and Merlot Moisturizer. I also received a sample of their Moonlight Radiance Night Cream. These are by far the most amazing skin products I have ever used, hands down. I am completely in love with the 100% Pure Grape Seed Oil!! It was originally recommended to me to try this and that it was really good for tattoos. I began using it as soon as I got it and WOW



I live in Phoenix, Arizona, and the heat and sun really dry out our skin here. It can be so difficult to find anything that helps after the moment you step outdoors! For once I have found a product that lasts, and super moisturizes! My search has ended and I can't wait to order more 100% Grape Seed Oil! On top of all that, the perfect opportunity for a review happened! I got a ton of new ink! I was so stoked to know I had Merlot's Grape Seed Oil to use on it during the healing process, and that is exactly what I did! I had minimal itching, peeling, and all my new ink healed in record time! Look how perfect it looks when it was healed, and the colors held just amazingly!


Not only will I, and have I been, recommending this Skin Care line to everyone I talk to, but I am sold for life myself as well! I definitely do not ever want to go a day without the Merlot's 100% Pure Grape Seed Oil for my entire body. The Night Cream is anti-aging, it promotes thicker skin and better skin tone, it helps reduce and reverse deep lines and wrinkles... And it feels great! Very relaxing, which is what you need at night when you have three kids, two of them being teens. There is truly no other Skin Care product line I would recommend above Merlot Skin Care. My brain, my skin and my tattoos are all very thankful for these products, especially since this is Thanksgiving Month!
