Merlot Skin Care Review!
Here are some MORE wonderful skin care products for you to sink your teeth into, this week from MERLOT skin care - boasting non-animal tested, fragrance-free products full of all the natural benefits of grape seed antioxidants!
From creams to face masks, Merlot has a lot to offer and I was lucky enough to try out their Purifying Peel-off Mask, Foot Cream and Anti-Wrinkle Cream alongside some trial sized night cream and moisturizer!
The package arrived safe and sound, well packed and in great condition alongside a wonderful pink bag complete with bow and floral tissue paper, which is currently available with your orders and makes for a great Mothers Day gift wrapping and perfect for any special lady in your life!
I immediately jumped at the Purifying Peel-off Mask as I am a HUGE fan of face masks in general and everyone knows that they're a lot of fun when it comes to taking them off at the end of the treatment! I tied back my hair and applied evenly over my face and let it set while carrying on with my household chores!
Very simple and easy to apply, the mask sat for a little while until I felt ready to take it off! I then gently peeled it all back and made sure there were no flakes left in my hair and I have to say my skin did feel quite soft after! I had no negative reaction and I loved how it wasn't too sticky or impossible to apply! I am going to use this once a week or so over the duration and see how I feel at the end of it - I should imagine that I will be just as pleased as I am now if this is the result after just one application - soft and replenished for sure!
I then tried the Foot Cream! After spending all day on my feet, and being pregnant with the next member of our soccer team, my feet are always sore and in much need of rescue by the end of a long day! I followed my usual foot care regime and soaked my feet with a wash I already had on hand and then dried my feet well. I then applied the foot cream, liberally and covered them with a clean pair of cotton socks! I felt satisfied that the cream moisturized and put some life back in my tired feet and would not hesitate to use it again! I soak my feet regularly as I find it helps me, personally, and so I will apply this cream every time I do so to keep my tootsies soft and not at all greasy! This product does fabulously!
Lastly I tried the Anti-Wrinkle Cream, which is something I am constantly on the look at for since I started to develop a few lines here and there as I roll on into my 30s! I applied the cream as instructed and it did well as a moisturizer to start and I am satisfied thus far with that aspect of it! I plan to use this cream a little more before applying judgement to the anti-wrinkle effect, but so far-so good! I have yet to try the trial sized creams as I am currently using a day and night cream that I want to use up first!
All in all, I don't have a bad word to say about these products! I feel clean and hydrated using them and they are not at all harsh on my skin! The prices are very reasonable AND right now there is also a Big Beauty Sale happening over at Merlot's website where you can snack products at up to 35% off the regular price - perfectly timed to treat yourself of a loved one for Mothers Day!
Have you tried Merlot's products yet?! I would love to know what you think or what you would love to try from their vast line of products! There is something that everyone! Enjoy!
