Everyone (from aestheticians to makeup artists to editors) swears by Vintner’s Daughter. And this is the ultimate gift for both the Vintner’s curious and the Vintner’s obsessed: the brand’s two cult heroes for your best skin, now in a limited-edition Japanese travel case. You get the Active Treatment Essence—a potent blend of probiotics, microalgae, hyaluronic acid, apple cider vinegar, and more than 30 active botanicals. And the Active Botanical Serum—a skin-balancing infusion of phytoceramides, nourishing fatty acids, and organic active botanicals. Use them together (start with the essence, follow with the serum) or on their own to see an enormous difference in your skin.

April Gargiulo’s foray into skin care started simply enough. She had been researching her favorite products and realized many of them were packed with ingredients that were potential health hazards (want to know more about clean beauty?). So the vintner—her family owns a winery in Napa Valley—started a side project: creating a supremely effective face oil with no harmful ingredients. It took two years to develop what would become an iconic product, a luscious face oil packed with 22 active botanicals that make a noticeable difference in your skin. (Gwyneth, makeup artists all over the world, and our beauty director, Jean Godfrey-June, are all huge fans.) In 2019, Gargiulo created a second product, a powerful treatment essence, which restores skin with water-soluble nutrients—the yin to the serum’s yang—and now, at last, there’s a third. It’s a foaming, pH-balancing cream cleanser that brightens and treats any skin type to the brand’s proprietary complex (it’s distilled from whole plants over a weeks-long process for max potency). Used together in a routine, the trio works to transform skin, no matter your skin type.
