There is something magical about FarmHouse Fresh. Every product calls to you. From the warm hugs packaging to the swoon worthy stuff inside, each moment with a FarmHouse Fresh goodie is a moment of joy. The fabulously named Maypop Steeped Milk Lotion ($31) is no exception – I oohed over the package, aahed over the glass bottle, and drenched myself in the sinfully rich lotion.
Gives me chills just thinking about it!sample
I think that what is truly amazing about FarmHouse Fresh is that while it’s so magical, it’s also supremely practical in every way. That’s what really delights me. The packaging wows me with its creativity and throwback appeal, and the products delight with the unusual scents and unique ingredients. But what is truly fantastic is the practicality of it all. Let me explain.
The packaging of the Maypop Steeped Milk Lotion is a super cool thick glass bottle that harkens back to a time of milkmen, grandma and mom canning vegetables, grandpa making dandelion wine. This is a gorgeous vessel that looks delightful while you use the lotion inside and you will definitely want to refill it with more lotion or liquid soap or bubble bath once you run out. It is most definitely repurposable! Practical, just like grandma was back in the day.
What is inside is also both unique and practical. Passion fruit pulp is slow-steeped in organic coconut milk, a fantastic skin softener. The steeped milk is blended into FarmHouse Fresh lotion, creating a super thick, incredibly hydrating lotion that smells fantastic – like rich berries. The lotion is so rich that it is even recommended for those with difficult skin issues like eczema, “as our formula creates an occlusive barrier that aids in alleviating eczematous irritations.” Besides the passion fruit and organic coconut milk, there are other awesome ingredients that are workhorses:
Sunflower & safflower oil are high in linoleic acid, proven to quickly reverse skin deficiencies like dryness, scaliness, redness and more.
Sodium hyaluronate & Tremella mushroom extract can hold several times their weight in water, helping reduce the loss of moisture through evaporation.
Panthenol-Provitamin B5 improves wound healing.
