How to apply Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum and Treatment Essence correctly

Vintner's Daughter is a premium eco-luxe brand specialising in facial serums that are made using the foundations and background of wine making, taking the raw ingredients and working with them over time to hand make powerful and potent serums. Instead of a few minutes or a couple of hours in a lab with premade liquids and powders, April takes each raw ingredient and spends time infusing them in to their base, not just for a few hours or a couple of days, this process happens over a matter of weeks. Each serum is a time intensive labour of love, extracting the nutrients from the finest ingredients grown by conscious growers from around the world.

There are two products in the range, the original Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum (an oil based serum) and the new Vintner's Daughter Active Treatment Essence (water based) which also goes through a further fermentation process to make the nutrients more bio-available for the skin, in the same way yoghurt and sauerkraut are fermented to increase their nutritional value. Each product is applied with a slightly different technique and in a specific order. Please use this guide to help you make the most out of your investment.

Which order should you apply the products

If you are using both the Active Botanical Serum and the Active Treatment Essence, the Essence is applied first using the Pat/Press method (read more below). The Essence is water based and dries on the skin without the need to 'rub it in' like you would a normal moisturiser. The Active Botanical Serum can be applied as the second step while the skin is still damp from the Active Treatment Essence. The Serum is applied using the Push/Press method (read more below).

How to Apply Active Treatment Essence

STEP 1 - Cleanse the face and then place 1/3 of a dropper of Active Treatment Essence in to the palm of your hand

STEP 2 - Briefly join the palms of your hands together to saturate both hands with the essence. Quickly apply to the face by patting and pressing the Essence in to your skin for approx. 5-10 seconds. This is a quick process so ensure you spend no longer than a couple of seconds joining the palm of your hands together before application.

How to Apply Active Botanical Serum

STEP 1 - Prep your skin by cleansing. If you are using both products, apply Active Treatment Essence.

STEP 2 - Place 5-6 drops of Active Botanical Serum in to the palm of your hand

STEP 3 - Activate the serum by rubbing the palms of your hands together.

STEP 4 - Use both of your hands, push and press the serum in to the face, neck and decollete for approx. 30 seconds.
