VINTNER’S DAUGHTER ACTIVE BOTANICAL SERUM

A great face serum that is truly active and fortifying is the key to great skin. Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum is one of the rare standout ones. With it’s dry oil texture that feels both nutritious and luxe, it delivers instant gratification to your skin and your senses!

There is a very good reason why for years, this has been a truly, madly, deeply beloved cult favorite. First off, it was a trailblazer in clean, non-toxic beauty with 22 highly active, meticulously extracted, organic, wild-crafted, or sustainably harvested ingredients. Their cold-pressed whole plant formula infuses grape seed oil with the purest most natural form of the flower, herb, etc. over the course of an eight week extraction process. Second, this nutrient dense serum-oil hybrid works on all skin types and penetrates the dermis so deeply and effectively with it’s smaller molecules, that it can truly be your one and only product. Granted, I still can’t manage to bench my vitamin C and peptides. I love playing mixologist and switching it up to keep my skin on its toes. But this Active Botanical Serum does cover all the key bases. It is highly anti-inflammatory, nourishing and regenerating. Chock full of ceramides, phytonutrients, fatty acids, antioxidants and minerals, it tackles skin aging, while hormonally balancing the skin.

I love using Vintner’s recommended push and press method. I warm up 5 drops by rubbing my palms together, sneak in some inhales and then push and press the golden hued oil into my skin. In fact, I push and press everything I put on my skin now. Heating up the product and working it in stimulates blood flow, while increasing penetration. And bonus, the intoxicating aromatherapy benefits alone feel like a rejuvenating spa getaway.

In terms of glow and vibrancy, this treatment is like skin resuscitation! Your skin will be smoother, brighter, stronger, decongested and completely balanced.

Jao All Over Long Lasting Natural Body Goe Oil

I hate you Jao. Because I love you too much. I wish I had a free lifetime supply because then I wouldn’t be so miserly when applying you. At 30z a tube, it’s just not enough when all I want to do is repeatedly dip myself head to toe in a vat of you. In fact, that is one of the many reasons why I’m obsessed with this decadent indulgence. You can apply Jao’s All OverNatural Body Goe Oil anywhere and everywhere. Hands, feet, face, lips, legs, hair. This super thick cream melts into an oil and sinks right into the skin, for deep penetrating hydration that’s never greasy, heavy or sticky. And best of all, it doesn’t fade after a few hours. My skin still feels nourished and moisturized a full 24 hours later. It tames flyaways, adds shine to your hair,  nourishes cuticles and cracked heels, soothes irritated skin. All that and it’s exceptional as an aftershave cream, calming and replenishing the skin with zero irritation, zero stinging.

Derived from 28 plant fruit and flower oils and butters, Goe is 100% truly natural and organic. Just look at the ingredients.  100% pure. Hemp, Kukuinut, Chamomile, Rosehip, Meadowfoam, Grapeseed, Mango, Pumpkin, Jojoba, Shea and the list goes on. A powerhouse rich in omegas, essential fatty acids, and vitamins A, E, C, B, G, and Beta Carotene. Luckily the smallest amount goes a long way, which makes the list price of $38 go down a little bit easier.

In these wintery months, dehydrated skin becomes the norm, but Jao’s Goe will put an end to that. The results are immediate from the very first application. And the light Tahitian Monoi scent will become an instant addiction. It will lift you into a euphoric state and your skin will thank you for it!
