One conversation with April Gargiuli and you can tell there’s only one thing that she loves more than wine: skincare. April’s an intuitive winery owner who realized that her beloved skincare products contained ingredients that were concerning to her. After trying everything from organic oils to coconut butter, April realized that many of the products she was using were green washed – that is, they were not as toxin-free or natural as they claimed to be. A pregnancy drove this point even further home for April.
Instead of lowering her beauty standards, April sought to create her own high performance formulation. Using her high quality winery philosophy and honing thoughtful, timeless wine-making practices, April created Vintner’s Daughter – a radiant serum packed with powerful anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, firming phytoceramides and nourishing fatty acids that packs the most powerful punch my skin has seen in years!
Non-toxic is just the starting point with this incredible serum. With 22 active ingredients blended with a wine-makers attention to detail, Active Botanical Serum is a results-driven game changer. All ingredients in Vintner’s Daughter are sustainably harvested, organic, wild-crafted and made from the highest quality growers. With a multi-layered, sexy scent and an easily absorbed formula, this serum boasts almost two dozen highly powerful oils and herbs. Bases of grapeseed oil, hazelnut oil, bergamot peel oil and rosehip oil, tamanu oil (mentioned in this video as being some of my favorites for the skin) plus superfood plants, skin loving herbs and flowers and skin-revitalizing vitamins, these incredible ingredients are also used in some of the highest concentrations in the green beauty industry, and combined to allow specific synergies to occur.

I use this oil twice a day: once in the morning after my shower and again at night before bed. I’ve been using it for three months straight in this way, and it’s had incredible results! Not only has my skin become clearer, more radiant and glowing, I’ve been legitimately getting compliments about how bright and plump it’s become! This incredible serum targets acne, fine lines, wrinkles, dry skin, irritation and redness. It’s a beautiful synergy that enhances circulation, oxygenates the skin, and penetrates deeply to address your largest organs biggest needs. The foundation oils are infused through a process called enfleurage, which involves combining the oils in an environment controlled temperature for 6-8 weeks. There’s that winery background coming in handy!
It’s very cool to see how something like wine-making can help create such an amazing, incredible serum like Vintner’s Daughter.
