"Grape seed" had me at hello. As you know, I'm a sucker for this extraordinary antioxidant, and Davi knows best. Davi is a boutique line based out of Napa Valley (produced by well-known winemaker Robert Mondavi). The Grape Seed Exfoliating Cleanser ($38.50) is formulated using the polyphenols found in grape leaf extracts and fermented grape extracts (from their own vineyard!). If you don't know already, polyphenols has some of the strongest (if not the most) antioxidant properties, so you can ensure a good, tough, anti-aging cleanse.

What I love about Davi Crushed Grape Seed Exfoliating Cleanser is that it features a concentration of Meritage, their own unique blend of fermented wine extracts, green tea, raspberry, black currant and bilberry extracts, rosemary and olive leaf extracts created through a unique double fermentation process. This blend of natural ingredients creates a shield to basically protect the skin and fight free radicals, which, as you know, lead to premature signs of aging.

The grape seeds and walnut powder is quite subtle too and not that harsh so you can use it daily (I do, happily). I'm sour about the sodium laureth sulfate and fragrance but there's too many good things here to deter me from using it (and we know as long as the SLS isn't on your skin for, like, hours, the less harm it can potentially make). As you would expect, there's a gorgeous scent to Davi Crushed Grape Seed Exfoliating Cleanser, mostly natural and fruity-ish. The results of the cleanser is just what the doctor (or winemaker) ordered.

    I just purchased this cleanser and I really like it, thank you for the review. I'm wondering if I need to continue exfoliating regularly in addition to this cleanser since it is an "exfoliating cleanser"? Also how worried should I be about the the sodium laureth sulfate and fragrance? What level of risk am I taking by using the cleanser daily?
