Drops of Liquid Gold

Today I want to introduce you to one of the best beauty products I've ever had the pleasure of using. Yes, you read that correctly. The product I want to write a bit about today is truly the creme de la creme of facial oils - it's liquid gold. This absolute gem of a product has the ability to turn even the dullest skin into glowing perfection, and after several weeks of use I'm finally ready to share a little more about it with you all. Okay, I'm going to try and calm down a bit and say that the product is Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum* and, if you haven't read about it by now, prepare to read a seriously gushing love note.

Vintner's Daughter was started by the stunning and incredibly kind April Gargiulio, a winery owner who, during pregnancy, realized that almost all of her current skincare routine included ingredients that should not be used. After doing a lot of research and trialling tons of different products, she decided to take matters into her own hands and create her own "hero" formulation, using only the best of the best ingredients. What resulted from this was her Active Botanical Serum - a infusion of 22 of the world's most active ingredients, created with a process heavily influencoed by April's background in winemaking.

Instead of going through the entire list of ingredients bit by bit, let me list them for you and pick out a few stars (a harder process than you might think). There is:

Grape Seed Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Bergamont Peel Oil, Avocado Oil, Marigold, Rose Absolute, Carrot Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Lemon Peel, Lavender Flower, Alfalfa Leaf, Nettle Leaf, Dandelion Leaf, Frankincense Oil, Neroli Flower Oil, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Sea Buckthorn, Tumeric Root Oil, Cypress Leaf Oil, Jasmine Flower, Tamanu Oil

So...just a few ingredients, yeah? But seriously - look through this list and you'll find some of the most impressive pieces of skincare currently on the market. Sea Buckthorn is a deeply nourishing oil filled with Omegas 3, 6, 9 and the incredibly rare Omega 7; Tumeric Root Oil is an anti-inflammatory and skin brightener that helps to neutralize free radicals; Dandelion Leaf is a potent detoxifier that promotes cell regeneration. The list goes on and on (literally). 

That leaves us with one thing to discuss - what did I think of the oil? Well, as I'm sure is obvious if you've made it this far, I'm head over heels in love. When I first received this dreamy skincare piece I was experiencing some rather blemish-y skin. At the time I was actually a bit nervous to start using this, afraid that any new product might make matters even worse. I first used it at night, using a process that April had recommended to me, her "push and press" technique. You start off by placing 6-8 drops of serum in the palm of your hand, activating the ingredients by gently rubbing your palms together. From there you place each hand on either side of your face, pressing firmly. Repeat this all over your face (for a recommended 60 seconds, though take as much or little time as you need) until the formula absorbs into your skin. It's truly more than a skincare routine, it's a whole, relaxing experience. 

After just a few nights of use I noticed my skin was already looking improved. It was far less red with much less angry blemishes, and I attribute the change purely to this oil. From then on out I started using this both day and night, either underneath my makeup or mixed in a bit with it. Since then, the serum has made my skin more even, more resilient and more evenly textured. These are all things that might sound simple, but in reality it's something that one single product has not been able to achieve in the past. 

April's beautiful formula has fans of all different ages with all types of skin concerns. They have all discovered, as I have, how magical this formula truly is. I would not only add myself to her extensive list of fans but would consider myself someone whose skin has been totally transformed and changed for the better from using her beautiful product.

I implore you to check out the Vintner's Daughter website, or follow April on InstagramTwitter, or Facebook and discover more about the wonderful story and formula behind this fabulous product. April also offers free shipping and a free sample with each and every purchase, if you weren't already convinced you need this in your life. In case you couldn't tell, I like it just a little bit...
