As much as I am vary of trying new skincare products, I love trying out different facemasks and exfoliators and love them all the more when they contain natural ingredients. I recently got to try the Revitalizing Skin Gel by Gravitale. It is a gel-based exfoliator made using crushed grapes and not just the stem or seeds of grapes, but actual whole grapes.
Gravitale is the first brand to introduce vinotherapy in India. Vinotherapy is basically the use of leftovers of grapes from wine-making for skincare treatments. Grapes are not only meant for making wine, but have amazing skincare and health benefits and have been used for treating innumerous skin and health concerns. They contain a good amount of antioxidants. Seed of grapes are used to strengthen the elasticity of skin, they also help in reducing acne and protect the skin from pollution and damage. Grape seed oil is also used for moisturizing. They contain Vitamin C and E too.
Anyway, coming back to the product, the Revitalizing Skin Gel is an exfoliator and is made using whole grapes from the Blue Mountains Vineyard in South India. It does not contain any sulfates, parabens, petroleum derivatives, soap or animal origin ingredients. The texture of it is very smooth as compared to other exfoliators. It does not contain gritty particles. The brownish colour turns slight white when you start massaging it onto your skin.
It does sting a little bit when you apply it, but nothing that that our skin cant take. However, I would recommend people with extremely sensitive skin to do a patch test before they apply it on their face. It smells of cola strangely, but I love its fragrance.
As with any other skincare product, you need to use it repeatedly for a continuous amount of time to see its results, I have been using this skin gel for a couple of weeks now. I usually use it once a week. My skin feels quite soft and clear when I use it.
