Let's face it, when we're younger we don't take nearly as good care of our skin as we should. No matter how many times you were told "don't forget to put on sunscreen" before going outside or "don't forget to wash your face" before bed we inevitably "forget" or just plain ignore the warnings bestowed upon us when we were younger. Which inevitably leaves us all searching for that miracle product, "the fountain of youth", or skin care products to reverse the damage (no matter how minor) done to our skin when we were younger. So when I got approached to review VineVera's skin care line of course I jumped on the opportunity!
After taking a look at the VineVera website I choose several products I thought sounded like good options to try then headed over to the review page to see what others thought of the products I selected. After doing some research and review reading I learned that VineVera uses a cutting edge ingredient called Resveratrol in all of it's products. Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in wine that has serious anti-aging effects. Yeah, you had me sold at wine.
In addition to Resveratrol, VineVera uses other high quality, effective ingredients and offers something for everyone. They offer several different collections inspired by several different kinds of wine to focus on a specific skin type or concern. Being at the age I am and as curious as I was I selected a few different items from the Vitamin C, Merlot, and Zinfandel collections. Looking back on it now I really wish I would have tried several products from the same collection to really get a feel for how the products work together but it was nice getting to try a little of everything....which isn't unlike my normal wine selection any way!
I've been using the VineVera products for a few weeks now (I really wanted to make sure I had a good sense of how they worked before writing the review) and I must say, I'm pretty impressed. All of the products arrived in beautiful packaging which is great but when you're looking for a product that really works it's about what's inside, not the presentation. Luckily, VineVera seems to have both! One of my favorite products has been the Zinfandel Illuminating Mask. Having clear skin is great but the key to truly beautiful skin is the glow. This product refreshes and reinvigorates the deepest layers of your skin to make you face radiant. I was surprised with the smell of the VineVera products, as most I've tried don't have the most pleasant scent but these have a very light, enjoyable fragrance. The thing I love the most about the VineVera products is they leave your skin feeling refreshed and silky without being too heavy or leaving a residue on your skin.
At the end of the day VineVera definitely has me convinced of the power of Resveratrol and now I understand why the French drink so much wine!
Happy Friday lovelies! I'm not going to lie, I had every intention of taking today off from blogging since this week has been crazy ...
