If you are looking for a product that delivers both short- and long-term improvements in skin tone and texture, Grape Seed Foaming Face Polish from Nutra-Lift ($22 for 4 oz.
) may be a good idea. It is a multi-tasking product that can be used as a cleanser, mask or exfoliator.
As the name implies, it relies on Muscadine Grape seeds and skin to fight radical damage with a potent dose of antioxidants - namely, resveratrol
, quercetin phenols
and flavonoids. It packs a much higher antioxidant punch than any other fruit or berry. It has also ellagic acid, unique to the muscadine grapes, that promotes better cell function and regulates its inflammatory responses.
Improvements in skin tone also come from “mildly abrasive” volcanic pumice and blueberry skins. The polish is balanced by certified organic honey
, botanicals (coltsfoot, birch sap, horsetail, nettle, red clover, sage, peppermint, orange, yarrow, rosemary) as well as vitamins (C, E, niacinamide, and A). Other benefits include a bunch of nice minerals and DMAE
The face polish really helps shed dead cells without over drying the skin. Calming honey and aloe ensures there is no irritation. Nutra-Lift recommends to those with sensitive skin a patch test before use. All in all, it left my complexion nourished, smooth, and glowing. Results are cumulative as I have used it mostly as a nourishing mask. After a month’s use, my somewhat dull skin was smoothed to a rather pleasing healthy condition. Some people may find that it has a slightly unappealing consistency out of the jar and an unusual smell but to me the benefits sure outweigh those little quirks. Hands down, it’s one of the best face scrubs I have ever used.
