A single bottle of Vintner’s Daughter’s coveted Active Botanical Serum takes three weeks to make—a process founder April Gargiulo describes as “arduous, painstaking, time-honored and worth every second for the powerful and lasting results it delivers to the skin.”

TAKE TWO
Gargiulo has “no interest in filling up drawers with bottles that just take up room.” Enter: Active Treatment Essence, “the hydrating yin to the Serum’s moisturizing yang.”

WHAT'S IN A NAME?
Vintner’s Daughter is actually named after my daughter, not me. I was pregnant when I began developing products, and was running my family’s winery. I am the vintner and she is the daughter.”

LIGHT BRIGHT
“I use microcurrent and red light almost every day.” Her high-tech heroes: NuFace and Celluma. “I love the results they deliver.” Berry-hued Rodin lipsticks complete her fresh-faced look. 


JAVA JIVE
“I’m obsessed with Lady Falcon Cascara—the husks of coffee cherries—which is higher in antioxidants than green tea or coffee.”
