While I did not get to review these particular items, I have in the past reviewed other products. And they were all exceptional and you will definitely want to try any of their products. Here's a sample of some things that I have reviewed in the past.

I have to tell you that I have used quite a few toners in my life but this is one of my absolute favorites! It just soaked right into my skin and made it feel so good and it was so much more easier to apply the moisturizer after using the toner first.

I felt nice and fresh for pretty much most of the day. Merlot's Hydrating Toner helps clean your pores and will help firm up the skin as well. This will become one of your favorites also, I can guarantee it! Plus, I love the color, I almost think it looks like the real Merlot wine!

The Grape Seed Toner helps do these important things:

**Refreshes skin
**Purifies and clarifies skin
**For all skin types
**Helps boost skin's tone after cleansing
Now, this is also my favorite product, the Grape Seed Moisturizer! I loved the purple color and how thick it was but it went on nice and smooth and my skin just drank up the moisturizer without making my face feel like it was packed with cream.

This is your main benefits of this moisturizer:

**Contains red grape seeds, nature's most powerful antioxidant
**SPF 15
You will come to love this purple face moisturizer because it is so versatile and it actually works! It really did help my face stay moisturized and feeling very pampered. But, it can so alot more than just that! Creme de Vin is made of natural red grape seed polyphenols. It's antioxidant properties help inhibit the aging process and is a perfect primer before applying makeup! It is a lightweight formula that does so much more than just leave skin feeling silky smooth.

This moisturizer works to fight against free radicals – the particles that contribute to the signs of premature aging. We need all the help we can get with today's environment, unfortunately, we actually have a harder time than our mothers and grandmothers at keeping our skin looking good longer because of what is going on with our air and other natural resources.

Here is one of their awesome video's that can explain about some of their other products:
I grabbed a little history on how Merlot Skincare was formed. I left some out so go read the rest when you can. 
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.
