The Vine Vera Reviews website has a whole page devoted to Resveratrol which is an ingredient in every product they carry. Luckily I am a blogger, and for the benefit of my readers I contacted Vine Vera to try their Resveratrol products. Went to see a skin care specialist recently. Just wanted to do a double check on the health of my skin. You gotta do those every so often just to make sure everything is going ok, ya know? Well I was thrilled to hear these words come out of the esthetician’s mouth: ”Your skin is looking pretty good.” What lovely words to hear! I have been religiously using my Vine Vera products and ensuring I take great care of my skin on a daily basis. I am trying to make sure I drink TONS of water, eating healthy, not picking at my skin, washing my face morning and night – you know all the good skin care stuff. And let me tell you guys it is paying offffff! My skin is looking better than ever… brighter, more even. I am so excited with the results so far. I cannot wait until I can go completely makeup free! I’ll keep you guys updated on further progress!
Hello again guys! I just wanted to let you guys know about a different product line of Vine Vera‘s which I tried. Well, not me personally… I have really been enjoying these Vine Vera products so I got my guy the men’s collection to try out. It comes with 3 things: After Shave Balm, Renewal Mask and Renewal Serum. My man likes to keep things looking on point – shaves every other day, haircuts every week, takes his stuff to the dry cleaners- so I knew he’d enjoy some manly skin care products. Of course, he would never buy them for himself cuz obviously he is too macho to venture beyond the drugstore into a skin care store (hehe) so I had to buy it for him as a gift. Glad I did cuz he seems to be loving it so far. I am loving it also. I swear it actually makes his face so much softer. Ladies, don’t you hate to be kissed by a prickly face? You know, when your dude has a 5 o’clock shadow and is trying to actually be affectionate and your like nooooooooo… HAHA! Don’t get me wrong, getting the affection is awesome but having a scratched up face afterward is no fun! So I have come to the conclusion that this stuff has helped his face and beard/goatee/whatever to be softer. And that is definitely a win! Also, like the rest of Vine Vera products, the men’s line includes Resveratrol and anti-aging benefits. Hopefully, not only will he stay soft but he’ll keep his baby face 🙂 Am I being a little cheesy? Sorry guys! But seriously the more I experience Vine Vera, the more I love their stuff. the products are pretty great.
Every several months or so there is a new and supposedly amazing cosmetic company that sweeps the beauty industry. This time I came across Vine Vera Skin Care. Lately ingredients related to anti-aging in skin care have been all the rage and Vine Vera is no exception to this. They use Resveratrol, a compound found in the skin of grapes, in all of their products. Some call it a rip off others say it’s a miracle skin care ingredient, which is it? In cosmetics, as with many other industries, all a company needs to do is employ an excellent marketing team and the world starts to believe they can pop a pill or apply a product to solve all their issues. Companies spend tons of money on their marketing department. Listen guys, you cannot always believe the hype.
So let’s talk about this newest world-is-ending-because-its-so-awesome ingredient; Resveratrol. I have read and seen information about this ingredient on the net, in newspapers, on TV… its everywhere! I have heard such outrageous claims as it making you look 30 years younger. Or that taking it as a pill will turn back the clock on aging in the body by 30 years. Seriously? Please show me this person that has become 30 years younger. Well, scientists have done studies on flies and this compound was proven to extend their life cycle by 30 minutes which is equivalent to 30 years in a human… Does anyone else find this preposterous? A story about Resveratrol aired on 60 Minutes and next thing you know, here comes the onslaught of companies with Resveratrol products; pills, creams, potions, and more. Vine Vera claims to be bringing the fountain of youth to its customers. The products are sold at a price point that would make most people assume they are effective (aka pricey), but is Vine Vera a scam ??
The Vine Vera website has a whole page devoted to Resveratrol which is an ingredient in every product they carry. Luckily I am a blogger, and for the benefit of my readers I contacted Vine Vera to try their Resveratrol products. Surprisingly, they didn’t try to shove whatever product they wanted down my throat. They were very aggressive but everything they told me ended up being helpful. They asked about my skin, explaining that for the best results they need to send me products that will be tailored to fit my skin type. I was game and played along. After a little bit of chatting about my skin I was told that I do not need to use the strongest products because I am still young. I don’t really have any wrinkles yet, just the beginning traces of some laugh lines. We agreed that something focusing on brightening and moisturizing would be best to deal with my leftover acne marks and uneven skin tone. They recommended the Merlot Collection for me – I was told it is the most widely ranging collection and perfect for starting a new Vine Vera beauty regiment.
About a week later I received my shipment of the Merlot Collection. It was beautifully packaged and included the following products: Resveratrol Merlot Moisture Day Cream, Resveratrol Merlot Nourishing Night Cream, Resveratrol Merlot Facial Serum, Resveratrol Merlot Refining Peal, and last but not least, a cleansing kit with a Milk Cleanser and Radiance Toner. After this huge rant of an article I must tell you something shocking: this stuff seems to be actually working! I have been using it for over a month now and I see a difference in my skin. I have had to change up my makeup, I switched from heavy foundation to a lighter BB Cream and I’m thinking about switching yet again to a tinted moisturizer. For a girl who puts on a full face of makeup everyday this is exciting and serious stuff. I can’t say how effective the anti-aging portion would be on someone more mature, because as I said, I don’t really have any wrinkles yet. But the things that improved, which were implied when I talked to the company about which collection I should try, were delivered. My skin looks smooth and much more even.
Even though I will still treat new beauty products with a heavy dose of skepticism and I still can’t tell you that Resveratrol is a miracle drug, I definitely feel that Vine Vera has fulfilled its promise. I would love to what their products can do for someone that is more mature or has more serious skin issues. Maybe Resveratrol cannot actually make you many years younger but it seems that at least one company has been able to harness its power to make you look better. I’m still not sure about the 30 years part, for myself I will go with 5 years, maybe.
So it has been a couple months now that I have been using the Merlot Collection and I’m back to give you all an update. I haven’t run out of any of the products yet. Seems like they will last a long time. You don’t need to use a lot so that’s helpful. Though I think I might run out of the cleanser and toner soon because I use those twice a day and do not skimp. I really like this set, especially as a starter, because it includes all the basics that you need. I think this set would be really perfect for people who are young or those that have not really been paying much attention to skin care products before. It is a good introductory set of high end skin care. As I said in my review before I am happy with the improvements this collection made to my skin. All that being said, I think I would like to try some products which are aimed at targeting some specific issues with my skin. I did already lighten up my makeup routine because I felt like my skin was looking better and more even. My ultimate goal is to get myself to a place where I would not feel the need to wear makeup on a daily basis. I still have some pigmentation in different areas of my skin from acne and that is something I would like to focus on. But I am still very happy with collection, I just think I would like to work in some products specifically for pigmentation or dark spots. Regarding the anti-aging aspect: they say that the best things for anti-aging are taking preventative steps. I hope that by following a skin care routine religiously I will avoid a little bit, or at least lessen, the problems that most people associate with signs of aging – wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin… I am getting close to 30 and see a lot of my girlfriends in their early to mid 30s starting to get Botox injections and things like that. While I am not against that I really hope that I won’t need that until much later. Not only do I try to do things more naturally, but I also am not thrilled with the thought of needles… If you must take my blood for medical reasons, fine, but why would I willingly let people poke me with needles? So, as you can tell, I will try to avoid needles as much as possible. Plus I wanna look like a real person when I am older. I mean, lets be honest, I want to look good and not look “old” when I am older but I don’t want to look fake and not be able to move my face! So I am betting on Vine Vera to help me out with that. Maybe in 20 years I’ll be back to update this post again, to let you guys know how that went. That will be the true test for Vine Vera! Haha.
I just want to let everyone know that any comments you write do not get posted immediately – they are moderated by the site admin before they show up. I’ve seen several comments from people worried or frustrated that their comments seem like they’re not showing up so I checked on this for you. The reason for the moderation/wait time is to combat spam. Apparently the amount of spam that gets into the comments is huge so Beauty Frizz admins go through each of the comments to make sure there isn’t a huge spam build up. I hope that clears up some confusion!
