In the past The Amazing Blog may have said that wine was our favourite grape-based product on the market but now we have a very different answer; anti-aging cosmetics. M.Asam Cosmetics is Germany’s first producer of anti-aging products developed from the ingredients found in grapes. 10 years of intense research into the anti-aging properties of grapes lead M.Asam to develop their high quality skin care line, which aims to battle against signs of premature skin aging. We managed to get a few samples of these brilliant products, including the Perfect Teint II, Vinolift Skin Tightening Cream, Vinolift Eye Cream and Vinolift Lip Lines Cream.
There’s a huge amount of complicated science behind the range, so we’ll try and sum up what makes it so fantastic. The Perfect Teint II acts as a temporary filler, providing a mattifying base for makeup. The product wears evenly throughout the day and is easily removed with a facial cleanser. The formula contains a retinol-peptide complex meaning that it joins up the forces of retinol and peptides. Retinol works on preventing collagen loss, treating fine lines and acting as an antioxidant, while the peptides stimulate collagen production. M.Asam combines these two agents in the Perfect Teint II, producing a makeup base that expertly blurs facial lines and enlarged pores to produce a matte complexion. It’s easy for us to see why they call it their ‘hero product.’
The Vinolift range is specifically designed for mature, dry skin and combines grape stem cells, resveratrol and OPC extracted from grape seeds. The Vinolift Skin Tightening Cream intensely hydrates the skin both morning and evening, reducing signs of aging all over the face. The Vinolift Eye Cream and Lip Lines Cream target their specific areas to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the delicate eye contour and providing a plumping effect to the lip contours. The Eye Cream also has the benefit of being fragrance free, a bonus for those with particularly sensitive areas around the eyes.
We love these products and hope you do too. The Perfect Teint II (50ml) retails for £23, The Vinolift Skin Tightening Cream 100ml retails for £29.50 and 50ml for £24, The Vinolift Eye Cream (30ml) retails for £21 and The Vinolift Lip Lines Cream (30ml) retails for £15.50.
