“We believe in bringing the freshest local farm ingredients into one’s bath routine, so we sourced U.S. farm-grown ingredients, including goat milk and cow milk, to create four new Milk Soaps shaped like fine cheese wedges which are charmingly displayed on cheese boards in spas and boutiques,” says Shannon McLinden, CEO of FarmHouse Fresh®. “These creamy gourmet soaps are hand-poured and packaged — they are literally farm to bath.”

Farmhouse Fresh Whole Milk and Goats Milk Soaps

The Local Gourmet Milk Soaps Gift Set ($124) has 8 soaps, two of each of the four varieties available. I wouldn’t mind having two of each, since there isn’t a bad soap in the bunch! I love them all and can’t even pick a favorite. The soaps are large triangle wedges that last a long time. They foam up nicely and are attractive conversation pieces with their unconventional shapes that are actually surprisingly practical and quite easy to use.

Blueberry Chia Seed Soap

Blueberry Chia Seed Soap

– Blueberry Chia Seed Whole Milk Soap features blueberries from Oregon and whole milk from the Midwest. Other ingredients include: olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, water, and chia seeds. This is a great exfoliating soap thanks to the chia seeds, and the coconut oil makes it a wonderfully hydrating soap as well. Oh, and it does smell fabulous!

Pistachio Cream Goats Milk Soap

– Pistachio Cream Goats Milk Soap features California pistachios and goat milk. Other ingredients include: olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, and water. This one smells lovely, very sweet thanks to the pistachio. The lather is quite thick and rich, making this a perfect soap for shaving.

Honey Lavender Whole Milk Soap

 Honey Lavender Whole Milk Soap features Texas honey, whole milk from the Midwest, and Washington lavender. Other ingredients include: olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, and water. If you are feeling stressed out, this is the bar to reach for – honey and lavender are wonderfully soothing and calming! Honey is great for skin and super hydrating.

Oatmeal Goats Milk Soap

– Oatmeal Goats Milk Soap features goat milk from California and certified organic oats from Kansas. Other ingredients include: olive oil, coconut oil, rice bran oil, and water. Oatmeal is so good for sensitive skin and calms and soothes angry and dry skin. I also love how this one is an exfoliating bar thanks to the oatmeal in the soap. It’s great stuff!

Farmhouse Fresh Whole Milk and Goats Milk Soaps

The Milk Soap bars are 4.5 ounces and are 97% natural. Individually, they cost $14.  They ae free of parabens and sulfates. and all FarmHouse Fresh fragrances are phthalate-free.
There isn’t one single product from Farmhouse Fresh that I haven’t fallen in love with – I mean, come on, this is the line that actually convinced my blog partner Marcia to try body products! You can find Farmhouse Fresh products in top destination spas, resorts, and retailers across the US, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Middle East, as well as online at farmhousefreshgoods.com.  – Lisa

A relaxing spa day with FarmHouse Fresh Will Dew mask and MegRhythm Eye Mask

I had to work really hard to write today’s post for you. Imagine how difficult it is to wear a soothing steam eye mask and relish in quiet for 10+ minutes and then apply a probiotic milk balancing mask with a gentle fragrance and calming feel. I know you feel for me. Of course you do. Luckily for you though these two products are easily available for you to indulge in yourself.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask and FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Mask

Each month I try to write about the Mask/s of the Month and I’ve been saving the MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask and FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask to share with you. Perfect timing since Makeup Wars has chosen to highlight favorite at home spa treatments. These two masks have made my October days, many of them stressful, much more relaxing and deserve this honor.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

I’m a mask lover and include them as often as I can without overdoing them. The MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask has proven to be one of the most relaxing eye masks I’ve used. It’s totally different too than the many others I have. There is no mess with this easy mask so it’s easy to use at any time of day or night though I’ve only used it when I don’t have eye makeup on.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

The box contains 7 masks that don’t activate until you tear it open to use. Don’t open it until you are ready to use it since as soon as you remove it from the packet it will begin warming up.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

My advice is to apply it near your bed or couch because once it’s on your eyes are covered and you can lay back and enjoy 10 minutes or more of calming relaxation. They are easy to open and it doesn’t slip down since it has ear straps. As you lay back you’ll feel the temperature rising but never to an uncomfortable temperature.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

When I’m using one I notice the heat and a slight damp effect. When I take it off I realize that it’s been steaming my eye area and it’s damp but not slimy. It’s just the steam.

MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask

After I’m done masking my eyes look and feel relaxed. There’s no magic but there is a feeling that my eyes are less hollowed out and smoother. It’s the perfect way to relax and do yourself some good. It’s available in 3 varieties on Amazon: Unscented (my choice), Lavender, and Citrus for only $10.99 for the pack of 7 (bringing the cost down to $1.57 each). MegRhythm Gentle Steam Eye Mask is a treat you’ll all love.

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

There’s no masking the fact that I love FarmHouse Fresh products and my newest acquisition is the FarmHouse Fresh Organics WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask. Talk about a soothing mask and this FHF product will be the first on your mind.

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

This wonderful organic mask is free of synthetic herbicides, pesticides, and GMOs. It’s also paraben- and sulfate-free like all FarmHouse Fresh products. What makes this unusual is that this nourishing mask uses probiotic coconut milk. It combines prebiotics along with the probiotics and certified organic rice extract. Plus there’s sweet almond oil which is “full of essential fatty acids, particularly linoleic acid, that can help maintain the skin barrier and decrease transepidermal water loss, reducing dryness and the look of wrinkles.”

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

That’s just about everything that my skin is looking for. As someone who’s fussy (obnoxiously so) about fragrance I can tell you that this is delightful – coconut with a touch of almond! Really?? How could it not.

FarmHouse Fresh WILL Dew Probiotic Milk Balancing Mask

It’s a very light feeling mask that is moist while on your skin and leaves it with a wonderful glow. It can be left on for as long as you like since it doesn’t dry down or crack. Since it’s so nourishing it can be used as often as you like. There are 14-18 applications in the jar ($40) and after 6 uses I can say I’ll easily get 18 out of it. It’s available on Amazon and Farmhouse Fresh’s website. While I have many masks and love my FHF ones to pieces I WILL buy this one again because I love to look like I have younger skin. Will you Dew this one?

Walk Hand in Hand with Farm House Fresh Organic Hand Cream

Farmhouse Fresh Island Elixir Shea Butter Cream

samplesaffiliate links

Isn’t it great? FarmHouse Fresh now has an organic line! They promise to have us ‘illuminate from without’ by crafting their organic line without GMOs, synthetic herbicides and pesticides. FarmHouse Fresh gets certification required inspections from roots to jar. That  means that their pick bins, gloves, equipment, storage containers, handling facilities and filling processes are all organic. Not only that but there is an auditing firm logo on each jar. Could you get any more organic than that?

FarmHouse Fresh Island Elixir Shea Butter

I was lucky enough to be sent the Island Elixir Shea Butter cream. I have very dry cuticles and love the way this delicately scented (coconut and pineapple) cream keeps my hands supple and moist. I’m typing with the cream freshly applied to my hands and am having no problems hitting the right keys or slipping off the keys. There’s no slippage or inability to be flexible. Plus I smell like a delicious fruity cocktail.

FarmHouse Fresh Island Elixir Shea Butter

The reasons why FarmHouse Fresh Island Elixir Shea Butter cream is so effective are, of course, due to the ingredients: Organic Shea Butter and Coconut Oil containing Vitamins A, D & E, which help skin retain moisture. Those ingredients are boosted by Sweet Almond Oil which is rich in essential fatty acids.

FarmHouse Fresh Island Elixir Shea Butter

 

The Island Elixir Shea Butter Cream is also excellent for soothing and beautifying cracked and dry feet; they have made a big difference to the look and texture of mine.

FarmHouse Fresh Island Elixir Shea Butter

If you can’t visit a tropical island, try Island Elixir Shea Butter cream as a scrumptious alternative. Your hands, feet and budget will thank you.  —  written by Phyllis
 

Feeling fresh with Farmhouse Fresh Body Wash!

Farmhouse Fresh Rainbow Road Body Wash

Farmhouse Fresh Rainbow Road Body Wash

I have been in love with Farmhouse Fresh Shea Butter Creams forever and now three of their best-selling scents are available in Body Wash ($18)! First, let’s talk scents. There’s Fluffy Bunny, which is a southern mint julep with a hint of lavender; Pink Moon, which is spun sugar with licorice blossom; and Rainbow Road, the one I was sent to test, which is white Bartlett pear with coconut. (I adore Rainbow Road so much I have a beautiful Farmhouse Fresh Rainbow Road Shea Butter Cream that I just keep repurchasing because it goes so well with my sink, ha!)

Layering scents is the best, so lathering up with Rainbow Road Body Wash in the shower or as a bubble bath then slathering up with Rainbow Road Body Lotion afterward is a heavenly experience.  The coconut base is rich and deep, and the fruity Bartlett pear is fresh and clean. Together it makes for an amazing scent that is great to catch a whiff of all day long.

Besides smelling terrific, the Body Wash has tons of skin loving ingredients, including aloe, vitamin E, chamomile, arnica Montana flower, and green tea. It lathers up nicely and leaves my skin feeling clean yet soft and hydrated, with the barest hint of scent…which I then always solidify by adding that extra layer of Farmhouse Fresh Body Lotion (or Body Oil…the Clementine Body Oil and Honey-Magnolia Body Oil are especially nice). The Body Wash is 95% natural, vegan, paraben and sulfate-free.  Great stuff!!

There isn’t one single product from Farmhouse Fresh that I haven’t developed an instant passion for – I mean, come on, this is the line that actually convinced my blog partner Marcia to try body products!!! The Body Washes are terrific and well worth checking out. You can find them in top destination spas, resorts, and retailers across the US, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Middle East, as well as online at farmhousefreshgoods.com.  – Lisa

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You wins my Makeup Wars battle

This week Makeup Wars chose the topic of favorite scrubs and exfoliators. I thought and thought about what to share and had several choices but FarmHouse Fresh won my heart with THIS BUNNY LOVES YOU Soft Skin Gift Set. When this set was sent everything else flew from my mind and I couldn’t think of anything else that I wanted to share besides this.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

If you’ve read Beauty Info Zone then you know that FarmHouse Fresh is the brand that changed my mind about fragranced products. Once Lisa talked me into trying their Watermelon Basil Body Scrub I was sold. I’m pretty sure she’s sorry about that because we now have to fight over who is the one who can keep this as part of their bath and body routine.

This Bunny Loves You is a gift set for you or for someone you do love. It would make a great Mother’s Day gift as well. It contains 2 full size products ($36). Inside you’ll find Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub and Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream plus on the outside you’ll find a great wooden spoon meant to mix the scrub.

FarmHouse Fresh This Bunny Loves You Gift Set

It’s the Sweet Cream body scrub that is the most loved product in this box for me. While FarmHouse Fresh has many products in this fragrance this is the first time I’ve had the pleasure to use it.

FarmHouse Fresh Sweet Cream Fine Body Scrub

Let’s talk about the wonderful scent. It’s reminds me of sugar and cream and everything nice. It’s a sweet fragrance even though it’s a sea salt exfoliator. FarmHouse Fresh scrubs separate in the jar so you need to mix them up which is where the great wooden spoon comes in.

Mix up the fine grain fresh sea salt and rice bran oil and you’re on your way to a lightweight, non-greasy soft feeling. I love this all over my body and it leaves me with a fragrance that lasts throughout the day. You can even use this at your sink to exfoliate your hands and/or feet to keep them soft and smooth.fhf this bunny loves you box info

While Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Hand Cream doesn’t officially fit in this week’s Makeup Wars it’s worth knowing about. FHF makes several hand creams and Fluffy Bunny fits in perfectly for spring. The scent is described as a Lavender-Mint Julep (Kentucky Derby anyone??).

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream

FarmHouse Fresh Hand Creams are loaded with supple shea and cocoa butter and Vitamin E packed jojoba and soybean oils along with Aloe to help with skin irritation. They are created to help with even super dry skin yet they aren’t greasy. Within minutes of massaging this in you can go about your business.

FarrmHouse Fresh Fluffy Bunny Hand Cream is 96% natural and like all their products are paraben free, sulfate free, and of course cruelty free.

While you can buy these products separately if you are in need of a gift then This Bunny Loves You will win you extra points!

Any season is perfect for FarmHouse Fresh Butter Rum Body Scrub

Yo ho ho and a jar of FHF Butter Rum

Farmhouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

FarmHouse Fresh Butter Rum Scrub

Who doesn’t love Farmhouse Fresh? Only those who haven’t tried the line. So what are you waiting for? If you love body scrubs and the delicious scent of butterscotch, you will adore FarmHouse Fresh Butter Rum body scrub made with premium rum liquor. As the jar says:  This buttery body exfoliator combines sugar and premium aged rum with vitamin E and a smooth butterscotch scent for a scrumptious cleansing experience that stimulates your skin’s renewal-leaving you soft and touchable. Apply in circular motions to wet skin while in the shower or bath.

FarmHouse Fresh says : Each product is crafted around delicious food and drinks, using up to 99.6% natural and naturally derived ingredients, and chock full of fruits, vegetables, milks, and more from U.S. farms, including our own. Butter Rum Scrub is 95% natural, and like all FarmHouse Fresh products, is Paraben & Sulfate free!  The scrub contains Sucrose, Soybean Oil, Sodium chloride, rum, laureth 4, peg-40, castor oil, rice bran oil, parfum, and tocopherol.

The scrub is a little different from others I’ve tried in that the sugar is on the bottom of the jar while the oil is on the top. You can use your hand or a spoon to blend the contents together. You may wind up, as I did, with quite a bit of oil left over when the sugar part is used up. Unless of course, you do a better job of mixing than I did, which is entirely possible. But I don’t care. The scent is absolutely delicious and the scrub makes my skin feel soft and smooth. It also disappears easily down the drain. I hope they make other products using this scent as it does linger a bit after you wash it off. And it makes your bathroom smell delicious.

Spread the love with FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

There are lots of ways to spread some love and one of my favorite ways is with FarmHouse Fresh. I always think of this company as the one that got Marcia to cross over to the dark side of body products!!  I couldn’t get her interested until I insisted she try FarmHouse Fresh, and now we have to arm wrestle for every product they send us to test. But don’t worry, we arm wrestle with love in our hearts!!  sample

I believe Marcia told me that the Whoopie! scent from FarmHouse Fresh is yummy deliciousness in a bottle. If you haven’t smelled this before, you are missing a real treat – FHF says it’s an ‘irresistibly delicious buttercream aroma reminiscent of the home baked Whoopie pies made famous by farmers of yesterday who would shout with joy, “Whoopie!” when they found the heavenly desserts in their lunch pails.”

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set

Right now, FarmHouse Fresh has a fantastic gift set of Whoopie! goodness available, which I think is a perfect V-Day gift for a friend – or, of course, for yourself.  The Whoopie! Deluxe Gift Set ($54) comes with four fabulous Whoopie! items:

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Shea Butter Body Wash

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Shea Butter Body Wash

1.  Full size Whoopie! Body Cream:  I love this body cream. The scent is soft but noticeable. In fact, I probably look a little weird when I wear this because I keep stealing a sniff of my arm every so often. Ingredients include Shea and cocoa butters, jojoba seed oil, soybean oil, aloe and vitamins A and E.  This 90% natural, vegan and gluten free body cream leaves skin incredible soft, and it calms irritated skin.

2. Travel size Whoopie! Shea Butter Hand Cream:  I actually keep a tube of this 90% natural, vegan, and gluten-free hand cream at my work desk and people will stop by just to ask for a squeeze of the white velvet cake-scented goodness. Not only does Whoopie! Shea Butter Hand Cream smell magically delicious, it is a heavenly moisturizer for dry skin and cuticles. Packed inside the cute light pink tube are shea and cocoa butters plus Vitamin E saturated Jojoba and Soybean oils for tackling the most problematic dry skin. The travel size is perfect for keeping in your purse and for taking on your adventures.

3.  Whoopie! Cream Body Wash: This is a delight. The body wash has aloe, vitamin E, sodium PCA, plus a bunch of extracts like chamomile, arnica flower, and green tea. It smells fantastic, cleans beautifully, and plumps up skin with tons of hydration. This 95% natural body wash is in a travel-friendly 3.3 oz bottle.

FarmHouse Fresh Whoopie! Soy Blend Candle

4.  Whoopie! Travel Candle: it is amazing how useful this candle is! I just went on a three day business trip and the hotel I stayed in was fine…but the room smelled stale and just…not like home. I burned this lovely soy-based candle and was immediately less homesick. The 1.7 oz. candle has 15 to 20 hours of burn time.

If you need a great V-Day gift for your mom or your girlfriend or just for you, I highly recommend this wonderful gift set. And unlike the namesake buttercream cake, this luscious hand cream won’t add inches to your waistline.

Be sure to check out this lovely (and still practical!) gift set.  – Lisa
