Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum is the hidden beauty secret nestled amongst my other skin care products, the unassuming brown glass bottle (chosen to protect and reserve the integrity of the active ingredients inside) doesn't quite hint at the pure liquid gold magic trapped inside. As any good facial oil should, Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum does indeed feature a dropper dispenser to control just how much product you dispense - for the record as this is so potent (and dare I say expense) less is truly more. After cleansing at night, I gently measure out three small droplets of oil - one for my forehead and one for either side of my face- before thoroughly massaging in and following up with my regular night cream (Origins Night-a-Mins FYI).
Admittedly Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum is not the lightest textured oil I have come across but stick with it, give it five or so minutes to fully absorb, sleep on it and bask in the glory of your rejuvenated skin the next morning. Grab that list of skin wishes and tick them off, as Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum delivers it all. Brightened skin? Check. A smoothed out and softened complexion? Check and check. A solution to fine lines, deeper set wrinkles and general ageing concerns? Check, check and of course check. For me the real seal of approval came after a long flight, a bout of hives and an weekend of air conditioning - miraculously this oil quenched any dryness, brightened and comforted in one quick step. It was like having my own facialist and skin care specialist at my beck and call, without the need for small talk and a tip. Think of this as your one stop beauty fix - a product that not only cares and caters to your skin needs but protects and rejuvenates at a lightening pace. Yes at £150 this is not a product anyone should, nor will purchase on a whim - run a Google search, ask a friend and a lot like the current state of my skin you will find that the reviews are no less than glowing.
Best start digging under those sofas now for any stray loose change...
