Everything about Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum is purposeful, from its carefully-sourced 22 ingredients, to the gentle enfleurage infusion process that maintains the integrity of the botanicals, to the sunlight-harnessing violet glass of its bottle that augments the formula’s efficacy. The end result is a golden-hued powerhouse of a product that’s quickly become a fixture in the kits of industry insiders like editorial make-up artist Alice Lane and Heidi Klum-favorite Linda Hay. Linda calls it “Her new secret weapon for healthy dewy skin.”
Founder April Gargiulo consulted Julie Elliot, the genius formulator behind popular eco-lux skincare brand In Fiore (and one of Small Bevy’s biggest beauty heroines) when conceiving Vintner’s Daughter and made use of her connections in the the winemaking industry to source only top-grade raw materials.
The product’s versatile feather-light consistency makes it an effective anti-aging treatment and a beautiful all-natural highlighter. Says Day, “Press into specific areas post-foundation: eyes, tops of cheekbones and bridge of nose.”
It’s non-toxic, high-performance and just feels amazing. We asked April for a few other beauty and lifestyle recommendations that fit that bill. If it’s good enough for April, it’s probably good enough for us.
