History of Merlot Skin Care
“His friends call him Dr. Grapes, others often refer to him as Mr. Merlot. With his signature skin care line, Wayne Beckley, creator of Merlot Skin Care, is quickly gaining a new title as the “Father of Grape Seed Technology.”
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.
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.“
For my review, I received the First Crush 3-in-1 Acne/Blemish Treatment. First thing’s first, I love the packaging. The tube has a rainbow splash on it. If I were shopping in the store for an acne treatment, my eyes would be drawn to this. With that being said, just because a product has great packaging…doesn’t mean it works great. So, does the First Crunch 3-in-1 Acne/Blemish Treatment work?
It cleanses, tones and treats your skin while allowing your acne and blemishes to gradually disappear. First Crush 3-in-1 Acne/Blemish Treatment was specifically designed to put the power of a multiple-product acne treatment kit into convenient tube. It provides three products into one. It takes out all the fuss that other acne treatments can. It is less time-consuming and definitely less expensive. They offer an alternative to bulky, messy treatment kits.
- Cleanser – Gentle non-drying cleanser eliminates dirt and oil
- Treatment – Breakthrough treatment combats blemishes without being harsh on skin
- Toner – Renewing toner freshens, firms, and invigorates
First Crush 3-in-1 is great for ALL skin types! It contains no harsh benzoyl peroxide and won’t aggravate current breakouts. It has ten active ingredients and utilizes grape seed extract, which is a natural acne fighter. It uses gentle salicylic acid to eliminate dead skin cells. Also, it combats blemish-causing bacteria with Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil.
I was so amazed at how much clearer my skin became after the first week. My blemishes were less noticeable, and my skin was smoother. It gets all the junk out of my pores, then gets rid of those unsightly pimples. I strongly recommend this to anyone suffering from acne.
