Stop the Madness

Vintner’s Daughter – The Holy Grail

First it was double cleansing.  Now it is triple cleansing.  There is double masking and double misting.  We cleanse, we mist, we apply serum, then moisturizer. Where does it end?

Please stop the madness!

Hey, I am all for self-care.  One look at my bathroom, loaded with products, will confirm that, but sometimes I just want, no…….I NEED simple, but effective.

Suddenly, everyone was talking about Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum.  It was  all over the internet as the only face oil you need….the holy grail.  Every review I found was positive.   Can it really be that good?  Then I saw the price tag.  Well, cult status or not, I wasn’t going to pay $185 for one bottle of face serum.  Add that to the cost of my double moisturizing and double masking, it was just too much!

Well, fast forward to the holiday season…who was I kidding?  I really wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

My husband gave me my first bottle of Vintner’s Daughter for Christmas.  I used it that night and the moment I put those bright yellow drops in the palm of my hand and took a whiff, I knew that it was something special.  Smell is very personal, so I can only tell you that I find the scent heavenly.  It reminds me of the Tata Harper Elixir Vitae scent.

It comes with a little instruction card that tells you how to apply it.  It is a push/press method.  You put the drops in your palm, rub your hands together and gently press and push it into your skin.  This seems silly and ridiculous at first, but it only takes about 30 seconds and when you think about the price tag, you realize that doing this allows the product to quickly absorb into your skin and not end up on your pillow case.  I want every drop absorbed into my skin!

Why is it so expensive?  Is it just hype?  This serum is the only product that Vintner’s Daughter makes.  It contains 22 ingredients that are all natural, organic or wildcrafted.  They are carefully sourced, harvested and extracted to work synergistically to brighten, decrease inflammation, plump and hydrate the skin.  Even the violet Miron glass bottle it comes in was chosen to only allow beneficial sunlight to help activate some of the ingredients yet protect and increase the potency and lifespan of others.

I have found that when I use this regularly, I don’t need anything else and it makes my skin feel and look amazing.  If you add up the price of all the products you use on a daily basis and think about this… You can use it as your serum, oil, moisturizer and eye cream.  One product does it all!

Is it expensive?  Absolutely!  Is it worth it?  Every cent!  Will I stop buying and  trying other products?  No way, I am a collecor, after all!  But…

 I am on my second bottle.
