Skincare is becoming more and more vital to my life. I reluctantly started using good skincare, doing so only because I knew I had to. In my twenties I didn’t project to the future enough to know that what I was using back then would make a difference all these years later. Well now I know so I want to encourage you, no matter what your age, to use good skincare on a very regular basis.
My latest discovery is MultiV6 and it’s a winner in all ways for me. I was sent all 3 of their products to test and I’m loving every minute of using this brand. The brand was created by Wayne Beckley, the founder of Merlot Skin Care – the best-selling natural grape seed based brand. I knew from that that this wasn’t just another brand trying to get business. He has long known how important antioxidants are for helping to protect skin and combat damage caused by harmful free radicals, including UV rays, smoke, and environmental factors. Now he’s launched MultiV6, a brand that uses a combination of 6 vitamins plus resveratrol to deliver nutrients and intense hydration to the skin.
Now that the weather has become milder I no longer need a moisturizer that is heavy duty. I’ve switched to lighter weight foundations and tinted moisturizers and love that I have switched to a lighter weight skincare system that still does everything I need it to do for my skin.
Three vitamin packed products make up this cruelty free, made in the US line.
Multivitamin Day Cream
Multivitamin Night Cream
The vitamin mix contains
Vitamin A: reduces redness, fades brown spots
Vitamin B5: reduces moisture loss, boosts hydration
Vitamin C: smoothes & firms skin, fades sun spots
Vitamin D3: diminishes fine lines
Vitamin E: alleviates dryness, bolsters UV defense
Vitamin K: helps diminish under eye circles
Resveratrol: protects from free radical damage
I have to praise all of the Multi V 6 products for their lack of fragrance. Not even a hint. This makes me incredibly happy. The Day Cream offers all day hydration and defense against the elements. With this light as air moisturizer I can layer sunscreen over it without a problem. It works perfectly under any cosmetic item I use without balling up. My foundation goes on smoothly and evenly, it feels almost like a primer but without primer ingredients. It has a silky feel to it.
While the day cream is $40 for 1.7 fl oz, the night cream is $45 for the same amount. This night cream is richer without being heavy. It feels just right for spring and summer especially. My skin has reacted beautifully with this over the past month. I enjoy the clean feeling that smooths on evenly. There’s no tackiness and it absorbs quickly. I do my nighttime routine just before bed since I’m a procrastinator. Sometimes I’m afraid to put my face on my pillow but MultiV6 doesn’t interfere in any way with that. The night cream is cool to the touch and glides on easily. It’s recommended to apply a little more on deeper lines or wrinkles.
Now for the best part – MULTIV6 MULTIVITAMIN SERUM ($50, 1 oz)
I am crazy about a great serum and this is one of the great ones. If you notice the packaging you’ll see that it’s got +RESERVATOL on it. That’s because in addition to the 6 vitamins that are so helpful they’ve increased the amount of Reservatol in this serum. This is a very hydrating serum yet you won’t feel like your skin is being smothered. It’s so lightweight and absorbs beautifully.
I use this alone during the day and layer it at night. I’m a big believer in taking vitamins and supplements like resveratrol so it’s great that not only am I absorbing them internally but now my skin can benefit from them too.
What does Resveratrol do for your skin?
Applied topically, resveratrol helps protect skin’s surface, interrupts and helps rebuff negative environmental influences, and brightens a tired-looking complexion. It also has significant skin-calming properties that may help minimize the look of redness. Look for resveratrol in moisturizers and eye creams.
