Here is our Exclusive Spa it Girl Q&A with April Gargiulo, Founder of Vintner’s Daughter:
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? I am a mom, wife, friend, daughter, entrepreneur and activist.
What Inspired you to start Vintner’s Daughter? I had struggled with my skin all my life and had used everything. I no longer wanted to use products with toxins in them, but nothing in the natural world delivered the level of multi-correctional performance that my skin needed. I wanted a one-stop, do everything serum. Active Botanical Serum is my desert island product. It is complete skin nutrition in one simple step.
What does the name Vintner’s Daughter stand for? I come from the world of fine-winemaking. The same philosophy that guides fine winemaking guided the formulation of Vintner’s Daughter. Just like my family’s winery, we are completely focused on the highest quality ingredients, working with the most conscious growers and producers and delivering unparalleled results. The name comes from this background. I was also pregnant when I first started working on this, so it is named after my first daughter.
What do you love most about being a Natural Beauty? I love the freedom that comes from not being beholden to someone else’s definition of beauty. True beauty is a light in the heart and the eyes.
Can you tell us your own Skincare Routine? I keep it super simple and really effective. I cleanse with a creamy cleanser, I tone with an acid toner and then I apply Active Botanical Serum with Push / Press Method. If my skin is dry from traveling, I apply a moisturizer at the end. Drop the mic. Walk away.
How do you Keep Healthy & Well from within? I stay away from processed foods, gluten and refined sugar. I also practice intermittent fasting 5 days/week by giving my body a 12-16 hour window each day to detox. I also (sadly) do not drink coffee anymore and I sleep so much better.
Do you have Must Do Daily Rituals? Cuddle and play with my daughters. Meditate. Physical Activity. Spending time with my husband.
Do you tend to want to use Natural, Chemical Free things whenever you can? Yes.
Why did you choose to want to give 2% of every Vintners Daughter Sale to Charity? I think generosity is one of the most beautiful parts of humanity. Also, I think we all have a responsibility to give back what we can. We focus on charities helping women and children around the world.
What’s your Go-To Morning Drink? Matcha
What do you love most so far about your #GIRLBOSS Vintners Daughter Journey? The community of passionate women I have met as a result of being in this world is one of the greatest gifts that has ever come my way. I will always be grateful for the inspiration and generosity of this community.
For someone starting out trying to build a brand presence on-line can you share any #GIRLBOSS words of wisdom? Be real, be yourself. Make sure you love what you do. Get sh*& done.
Can you share any tips on how to stay on top of everything as a #GIRLBOSS? Get organized early. Ask for help.
What Makes you Happy? Spending time with my family.
What Inspires You? Generosity.
What’s one thing you really want to do? Go on a silent meditation retreat.
Do you have any Go-To Mantra’s? Practice gratitude.
