One Lucky Reader (US Only) to Receive Your Very Own Bottle of Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum (Value $185.00) CLICK HERE TO ENTER

A few months ago, I discovered the multi-sensory luxury of testing the exquisite Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum. I was so excited after reading all the positive reviews and press. The idea that what was inside this beautiful deep violet Miron glass bottle, with this special infusion of 22 of the world’s most active organic & wild crafted botanicals had me jumping up and down. I had researched all the available information on Vintner’s Daughter. I learned about the small particle size of the proprietary formula which allows the botanicals to deeply penetrate the skin’s layers. Allowing the skin to become more healthy, nourished and radiant. I was very impressed by the stellar ingredients and the careful and ethical sourcing of the botanicals.

BUT, more importantly I was wondering how my super sensitive and reactive skin would handle this rich active serum. So, I contacted the Founder, April Gargiulo, and asked her what she thought! We talked on the phone and she recommended that I start slowly with 2-3 drops daily. I took her advice and in the evening after cleansing + toning, I used 2-3 drops and incorporated all her steps for the “Push and Press” technique. I found my skin loved every single drop and that 2-3 were and still are, perfect for me. The cost of the Active Botanical Serum is expensive at $185.00 per bottle. I found that using the smallest (yet effective) daily amount for my particular skin condition was the most economical way to have this product last for a really long time! I also dread the day that I catch a glimpse of the bottom of this bottle. The scent is extraordinary and the formula, really is, “that special” to me.



I even shared (reluctantly!) with my Mom, who’s 56 and has Rosacea. I had read that this serum can strengthen capillaries, so I recommended for her to give it a try for a few weeks. She mixed two drops in a small amount of Sun Potion Shea Butter (my personal favorite) and applied to her face. I had read that Lacy of Free + Native used this combination when she uses the Active Botanical Serum. My Mom’s skin and Rosacea look better than it has in a really long time and she’s thrilled with the results. It’s a very powerful product and for the both of us a little goes a very long way.

April, along with her carefully chosen natural beauty industry experts, spent two years formulating this unique Active Botanical Serum before it was perfected. Every drop of this serum is filled with skin nourishing beauty. The essential oils were specifically targeted help fight signs of aging; stimulate cellular turnover, strengthen capillaries and inhibit melanin production. April was influenced by her fine wine making background. Fine wine making is about growing the highest quality grapes and honoring them through thoughtful and diligent wine making practices.

So it is that April brought these same principles to her sourcing of the world’s finest raw ingredients and adhering to an exacting formulation process. The result is a serum with anti-inflammatory phytonutrients, firming phytoceramides, nourishing fatty-acids and filled with powerful anti-oxidants that work together to restore radiance and vitality to unbalanced skin.

  1. I have heard so many great things about this serum. It would be exciting to win this because I have found since using facial oils and serums on a regular basis they have greatly improved my skin. This would become a staple in my skincare if I win it. Thanks for such a great giveaway!!:)

  2. The serum sounds incredible, especially the anti-inflammatory, capillary health and inhibiting melanin! I think this would actually help the dark circles and puffiness around my eyes that I wake up with everyday. I always look as though I’ve been crying all night despite the fact I haven’t. Would LOVE to be able to try this 🙂

  3. I’m a sucker for serums LOADED with nutrients. This one sounds absolutely amazing! I have hyperpigmentation, post inflammatory marks, dark circles, pores that need toning, you name it. I would love to be able to try such a gourmet serum that is a cure-all for skin. Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Got a sample of this and have been saving towards a bottle since the first application. Would be lovely to win a bottle-thanks to you both for this generous giveaway 🙂

  5. Very excited about this product! April, can you speak more about the number of drops one should use? Britanie mentioned only using 2-3 drops but the recommended dose in your push press technique says 6-8 drops. I have fairly clear skin, with the exception of a few pimples that crop up on either side of my cheek, and am still trying my best to heal my scars along with diffusing active acne.

  6. Oh, I forgot to leave a comment on what I find exciting about this serum.! I was initially curious because I remember reading somewhere that April has acne prone skin, and that the serum has helped balance her hormones to the point or controlling breakouts. I have yet to find a green beauty product that has delivered on that promise so far– great as many of them are– and am hoping that this will be the breakthrough product for me!

  7. I never heard about tis product before. The serum sounds incredible, Just by this description ” filled with powerful anti-oxidants that work together to restore radiance and vitality to unbalanced skin.” it´s amazing. Unfortunately is expensive. Thanks for such a great giveaway!!

  8. So many great ingredients in this serum. I would love to see how it works for my sensitive, acne prone skin! I’ve also heard great things about this brand.

  9. I am so, so excited about this serum! I’ve been reading so many glowing reviews about it but the price point is a little daunting – being able to win a full sized bottle and give it a chance to really work its magic would be amazing. I’ve been using Laurel’s anti-inflammatory serum and it has really turned my skin around. My skin is super sensitive and prone to congestion and this sounds like it would be perfect! The tumeric oil in the formula is particularly interesting. Thank you so much for an awesome giveaway!!

  10. I would love to try this ❤ I am 42, and have sensitive, aging and acne prone skin-yea me!!! I have tried many oils out there and none have worked 😦 I have heard great things about this oil, but unfortunately my wallet say otherwise. I am at my wits end with my skin, maybe it's hormones but it needs help!

  11. This serum sounds absolutely amazing and life changing for your skin! I would love to try this product not only because it is a miracle in a bottle, but for all the nutrient benefits for my skin in the serum 🙂

  12. Having sensitive congested combo skin this sounds amazing to try! Sounds like a great skin day in a bottle!

  13. Wow! I always wanna try out something new and especially organic skincare that will work for you. This product looks.amzing and would try out for.the first time , crossing my fingers 🙂

  14. I’ve actually only recently heard of this brand. But it sounds like something my typically unbalanced skin could use for glowing summer skin. I normally use facials oils and some serums from Kypris so Vintner’s would be a nice addition to my skincare ritual. Fingers crossed!

  15. I’ve read of many studies that suggest that topical antioxidants are the key to fighting inflammatory skin conditions such as acne and rosacea. This serum seems absolutely incredible in its ingredient composition!! I’ve struggled with breakouts for ages, and would love to try this serum in hopes of controlling the little demons 🙂 thank you for this super generous giveaway!!

  16. Would be great to try a potent serum like this to prepare the skin for harsh autumn and could winter close to the polar circle in Norway where I live

  17. I would love to try this luxury serum since I also have very sensitive skin. I am very curious about the ingredients, and would love to see what wonders it can do for me!

  18. I would love to try this serum because I have blotchy skin right now due to dealing with stuff from my past (stress). Plus, I’ve never tried a serum before. Thanks for doing such an awesome giveaway!! 🙂

  19. At 62 I am new to the green beauty world. I would love the chance to try this. I have been using products like Avon and every drug store brand out there. I have minor breakouts-and at 62 you wouldn’t think this would be happening. Thank you for the giveaway!
