Vintner's Daughter

When I decided it was finally “Go!” time for the apothecary, there was absolutely no doubt that the first product I had to line up was Vintner’s Daughter. Praised by top celebrity makeup artists and beauty editors alike, Vintner’s Daughter has gained a cult following amongst beauty professionals across the globe. This Active Botanical Serum is a luxurious multi-correctional infusion of 22 of the world’s most active organic and wildcrafted botanicals. It has been referred to as “the face oil to end all face oils”, “liquid gold”, and “unicorn tears”. 


Using her winemaking background (hence the name), founder April Gargiulo sources only the purest botanical actives from the most conscious farmers and like an alchemist extracts and combines ingredients in such a way that the efficacy of each is emphasized- making the sum greater than it’s parts.  And, of course, there are no parabens, phthalates or synthetic fragrances. 


So if you were wondering what multi-correctional implies- just a few drops of this magic can fight signs of aging, stimulate cellular turnover, improve skin elasticity, strengthen capillaries, inhibit melanin production, prevent wrinkles, treat acne, deliver oxygen to cells and protect against free-radical damage.


Seriously.  If you do ONE thing, this should be it.  Even though I’m a product junkie, in real life I have to be a minimalist.  I can’t handle one more job, in addition to the 3 (mom, hairdresser, entrepreneur) I already have! Sometimes the night time regime can feel like that- a job or a burden.  Just too much when I’m basically toast. Speaking of 3 full time jobs… Could there be any connection here to my dark circles, fine lines, chin breakouts and dry patches? 


I use it at night after cleansing and toning, and in the morning before I apply my tinted sunscreen.  The application is crucial- the “push/press” technique is charmingly illustrated in the product packaging and helps the skin better absorb the serum.  Inhaling the beautiful aroma after warming it in the palms and pressing my face, neck and décolletage has become more a meditative, therapeutic and luxurious moment of self care than just another chore on my to-do list.


I noticed a difference in my skin immediately, but it has gotten even better after a few weeks of regular use. My skin is more healthy, even toned, radiant and youthful.  My friends, family and clients are even commenting! For me, Vintner’s Daughter is a silver bullet; a concentrated multi-tasker that delivers immediate results.  Cheers to that!
