Farmhouse Fresh and fabulous holiday buys

Welcome back to Makeup Wars. We took a break over the summer which then extended into the fall but we’re excited about being able to come back full force now. Today’s topic is Holiday Beauty Buys. My beauty buys aren’t quite within the norm since I’m taking you into bath and body products specifically from Farmhouse Fresh. I didn’t want to go the typical route with cosmetics since I’m sure the rest of the crew will be sharing theirs. I’m so enamored with Farmhouse Fresh and I think they make great gifts for holidays, hostess gifts, housewarming gifts, and, most important, for you!

Farmhouse Fresh Sweeping Softness Body Sampler

Farmhouse Fresh Sweeping Softness Body Sampler

I only have one of the many Farmhouse Fresh gifts but I hope that will change. SWEEPING SOFTNESS is a 3 step sampler for your body. What you’ll get is a ready to wrap box with three of Farmhouse Fresh’s top selling body products. For $18 you’ll be able to see what bloggers rave and rave about. The plastic jars each contain 1 fl oz of product. Enough for many uses and enough to tempt you to try these full size or other FHF products.

Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Scrub, Whoopie Cream Shea Butter, Agave Nectar Body Oil

Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Scrub, Whoopie Cream Shea Butter, Agave Nectar Body Oil

Start your day in the shower with Sweet Cream Sea Salt Scrub. This has been on Oprah’s Favorite List so it’s easy to understand why it was chosen for this set. When you open the jar you’ll see the sea salt and silky rice bran oil. I mix them together with a tiny spatula that I have from a previous jar, then scoop it out to exfoliate my body with its goodness.

It melts on my skin while hydrating it with the oil. The fragrance is sweet and luscious; it will remind you of baking sugar cookies.

From there you want to apply Whoopie Cream Shea Butter, a fluffy body cream that smells like a vanilla layer cake just out of the oven. It’s really wonderful for dry skin as it contains shea butter, vitamin E packed jojoba and soybean oils. Your skin is going to be so soft after. While this smells good enough to eat, save it for your body. My legs are eating this up.

Before dressing give yourself a wonderful experience with the Agave Nectar Body Oil. I’ve previously raved about the FHF Body Oils so having this one is a delight. Since it’s in a jar it’s harder to use though which is why I cut part of the liner off. This is an oil so you don’t want to spill it and waste the delight inside.

FHF describes the smell as similar to Tiramisu with an oat milk scent. I don’t think I’ve ever tried anything quite like this fragrance wise. I smell vanilla in it too. “Barley, Sandalwood and Amurense bark combine with Agave Nectar and a blend of natural oils to deeply hydrate without a greasy afterfeel.” These oils are heaven scent. They don’t leave my body feeling oily and they don’t cloy with their scent. I notice the fragrance for a while but it never interferes with my day.

Sweeping Softness is a perfect gift for any woman you know even if you have no idea of what she likes. It’s the kind of item to have on hand for a last minute gift or to take with you. While I highly recommend it for you too to have the chance to try 3 amazing products from Farmhouse Fresh there are two other gift sets that look pretty amazing too.

Farmhouse Fresh Skin Saviors

Farmhouse Fresh Skin Saviors has 3 shea butter items within: This travel trio of our best-selling shea butters is ready to quench on-the-go. Whoopie! Cream (scented like fresh-baked whoopie pies), Rainbow Road (scented with coconut and Bartlett Pears), and Fluffy Bunny (a light lavender mint julep) bring along decadent scents and the promise to hydrate – wherever you may be!

Farmhouse Fresh Quick Recovery

Farmhouse Fresh Quick Recovery

Farmhouse Fresh Quick Recovery is a face mask kit containing Guac Star Avocado Mask for hydration, Splendid Dirt Organic Pumpkin Mud Mask for radiance, and exfoliate to smooth perfection with Pudding Apeel Tapioca Glycolic Mask. I’ve used both the Guac Star and Pudding Apeel and know that they are outstanding.

No matter which of these is your choice, you can’t go wrong. There aren’t enough superlatives in my vocabulary to describe how I feel about Farmhouse Fresh and these holiday gift sets will make your days and nights a lot brighter.  —  Marcia

Farmhouse Fresh has altered my life. Citrus Cilantro Body Oil and Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard are 2 reasons why.

Farmhouse Fresh Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard and Citrus Cilantro Body Oil

Farmhouse Fresh Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard and Citrus Cilantro Body Oil

Upon discovering Farmhouse Fresh my sensibilities were altered. I always said I don’t like fragranced products. Anything fragranced that came to Beauty Info Zone via PR was something that my blog partner Lisa received and wrote about. She finally twisted my arm and told me that Farmhouse Fresh was a line that she knew I would love and she was so right. I don’t just love the line, I’m crazy about it. My former beliefs were turned upside down and now I crave Farmhouse Fresh. Happily I was sent two new products to adore and teach you about.

It’s important to know what makes Farmhouse Fresh stand out from the crowded field of bath and body. This is a company that uses farm fresh ingredients that are grown in the U.S. Resorts and spas throughout the states proudly use their products knowing the clients will be clamoring to come back for more. 99% of their products are vegan and gluten free. Each product ranges from 90-99% natural. Finally the scents are exquisite.

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil and Citrus Citlantro Body Oil

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil and Citrus Citlantro Body Oil

Citrus Cilantro Body Oil is the second Body Oil I’ve been privileged enough to use. When I reviewed Quinsyberry Botanical Body Oil I noticed the other scents and drooled. I knew that more would be in my future. Citrus Cilantro is a totally different experience. While Quinsyberry is sweet and seductive Citrus Cilantro is like a breath of fresh air. It’s an outdoor  fragrance to me. It’s summery in the same way that freshly cut grass is yet it has an edge to it with the citrus. Citrus Cilantro Body Oil is formulated with antioxidant-rich olive fruit & grapeseed oils and contains orange peel, jojoba, sunflower seed & apricot kernel oils.

Farmhouse Fresh Citrus Citlantro Body Oil

It’s wonderfully hydrating and I like to apply this upon getting out of the shower. If you love to luxuriate in a bath then a Farmhouse Fresh Body Oil is a great companion. Pour some in and it will automatically hydrate your skin without leaving it oily. Since it’s a glass bottle it lives on my counter and not in the shower stall. I’m always amazed at how little I need to moisturize my body and how long lasting this is. Even though an $18 bottle of Farmhouse Fresh Body Oil lasts forever I’ve still ordered Clementine since these are what I like to use for fragrance. Who’d have thought this would ever happen to me?

Farmhouse Fresh Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard

Farmhouse Fresh Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard

Newer to my life is the Farmhouse Fresh Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard. Oh my goodness. You don’t know what delicious smells like until you use this body moisturizer. It’s like getting two for the price of one. Unscrew the glass jar and from your first sniff you’ll be thanking me for introducing this to you. It’s that scrumptious.

This light orange and white body moisturizer comes with a great wooden spoon for mixing. It’s created from a 2-part blend that includes 1/2 whipped shea butter and 1/2 live fruit cells that are suspended in an aloe gel. Imagine yourself wrapped in this blood orange cream with a hint of delicate honeysuckle flower essence! This is a fabulous warm weather body cream. It’s rich enough to make your skin feel soft and moisturized but light enough for summer skin. You’ll not only feel soft and supple but you’ll smell delicious. Both the mason jar and the wooden spoon are reusable too. One of my favorite parts is this bag that it comes in, all ready for gift giving!

These two products have strengthened my admiration for Farmhouse Fresh and I’m eager for a fragranced future with them. —  Marcia

Yummy body products from Ola Tropical Apothecary

Ola Tropical ApothecaryNothing says summer like coconut scented body products! Ola Tropical Apothecary, a wonderful boutique line from Hawaii, has everything needed to get your summer on. This is a very special line that has blown me away – the products are so good, you owe it to yourself to read on!!                   samples

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Sugar Polish

Summer skin needs to be soft, exfoliated skin – beware the poolside moment when you suddenly realize you are ashy. Ola Sugar Polish ($30 for 13 oz.) is a great way to gently exfoliate and hydrate your skin. Beautiful ingredients include pure Hawaiian cane sugar (and none of the guilt!!), organic Hawaiian honey, healing Hawaiian plant extracts, natural cleansers, Kukui nut, Macadamia nut, Cocoa and Organic Coconut oils. Ola Sugar Polish is a luxurious way to pamper your skin.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Lotion

After polishing, you want to moisturize to seal in all that goodness. One option is the Ola Coconut Body Lotion ($29 for 8 oz). This is a soft, light cream that sinks in quickly and leaves behind a criminally delicious deep coconut scent. The ingredient list is incredible:  We blend Aloe Vera Juice and Coconut Creme with Avocado, Mango, Passion Fruit, Tamanu and Organic Virgin Coconut oils and locally harvested Macadamia and Kukui nut oils.  Infused with our unique synergetic healing blend of Organic and Wildcrafted Hawaiian Botanical Distillates (Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potato, Banana, Seaweeds, Aloe Vera, Sugar Cane, Bamboo, Ginger, Noni, Olena and Taro), to create a super hydrating and quickly absorbing formula to repair, replenish and heal your skin.

The Coconut Body Lotion is a little more expensive than others out there, but when you check out that ingredient list it’s no wonder why. Oh, and by the way — TOTALLY worth the extra expense.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Butter

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Butter

If you want a moisturizer that is a little more rich, check out Ola’s Coconut Body Butter ($29 for 4.6 oz). I typically don’t go with heavier body moisturizers in the summer, but this is the lightest of body butters. It’s whipped into perfection and feels cool and soothing on the skin. It melts in immediately and smells so good…I can’t get enough of this stuff. I want to eat it with a spoon.

The body butter is a blend of Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Cocoa and Organic Mango Seed Butters.  Infused with our unique synergetic healing blend of Organic and Wildcrafted Hawaiian Botanical Distillates (Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potato, Banana, Seaweeds, Aloe Vera, Sugar Cane, Bamboo, Ginger, Noni, Olena and Taro), to create this creamy, luxurious formula that will repair, replenish and moisturize dry, thirsty skin.

All I can say is that I am head over heels in love with Ola’s Coconut Body Butter.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Body Mist and Body Oil

I can’t get over the next two products, they are THAT good. I start with the Coconut Body Oil ($29). This is a fantastic and unique blend of tropical oils that soften, heal, and scent your skin.  Oils include pure organic coconut oil, organic avocado oil, Passion Fruit oil, and locally sourced Macadamia nut and Kukui nut oils. They leave skin satiny soft and glowy. This feels sooo good after swimming in the poor or lake.

I finish with the Body Mist ($22 for 4 oz) for perfect summer skin. This is no ordinary scented body mist….it has a secret ingredient, 100% Hawaiian Deep Sea Water. This water is found at 3000’ below the ocean surface off the Kona Coast and it “contains life’s most precious nutrients and minerals in nature’s perfect ionic and absorbable blend”.

The Hawaiian Deep Sea Mist has over 90 trace minerals, is high in calcium and magnesium, pathogen free and some of the cleanest and most nutritious water in the world. I keep it in my gym bag or my beach bag. Just knowing the goodness inside that bottle makes me feel refreshed and pampered.  Some of the other ingredients:

Infused with Aloe Vera Juice and our unique synergetic healing blend of Organic and Wildcrafted Hawaiian Botanical Distillates (Sugar Cane, Bamboo, Ginger, Noni, Olena and Taro), this formula has a naturally high alkaline ph which makes it exceptionally hydrating and nourishing for the skin, hair and face.

You can also mist your sheets, fabric couches, rugs, or the air to get some Hawaii into your space.

Ola Tropical Apothecary Coconut Lip Renew

Finally, I have to give a shout out to the Coconut Lemongrass Organic Lip Moisturizer ($6). When you place an order, be sure to throw in one or two of these. I am a real lip balm snob and this is, by far, the BEST lip balm I have ever tried!! It hydrates lips like crazy, feels sooo good on, and tastes lightly coconutty.

Locally sourced tropical oils and butters are blended to provide long-lasting moisturizing benefits

Locally harvested Organic Beeswax is added to protect and seal in moisture

Flavors include Banana Honey, Coconut, Mango Passion Fruit, and Tropical Melody. I want one of each!

If you only splurge on one thing this summer, make it Ola Tropical Apothecary. This beautiful line has some of the best body products I’ve ever tested. Ola Tropical Apothecary products are available at better specialty stores, fine salons and spas nationwide or by visiting www.hawaiianbodyproducts.com.  – Lisa

 PS – they also have exfoliating towelettes, sunless tanning, hair products, home fragrances, and more!!

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Botanical Body Oil is perfection in a bottle

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil

I want to be one of those women who can walk by a bath/body section or store and admire the yummy sounding confections. But I’m not. I need to be seduced into trying a fragrance item. FARMHOUSE FRESH knows how to seduce me. Their seduction factor runs high. Everything I’ve gotten from Farmhouse Fresh has been amazing and made me went to dive head first into their manufacturing facility.

When I was offered the chance to try Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil I didn’t hesitate for a minute. I absolutely knew that I’d want to try this out and now happiness abounds. How could I say no to this? “96%-Natural, Vegan  & Gluten-Free Body Oil Features Vitamin A- & C-Enriched Black Currant Which Helps Prevent Premature Aging While Restoring Skin’s Natural Glow”

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil contains a blend of blackberry extract and light botanicals oils. The fragrance has a soft apple blossom aroma mixed with the blackberry. I’m not one to be able to describe scents well but I know what I like and I really like this. Besides being rich with vitamins this body oil makes my skin feel soft and warm. I love the feel of this on my body.

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil

I started slowly since that’s how I roll with a fragranced item so my legs were first. I noticed just a soft whisper of fragrance but that my skin felt so moisturized. So I moved up and used it on my body. As I became more enthusiastic about the aroma I moved to my arms. Even my husband asked why I smelled so good.

Ingredients that make this so wonderful:

  • blackcurrent extract – which is rich in antioxidants that help repair and nourish damaged skin while restoring your skin’s natural glow
  • Vitamins A and C to help prevent premature aging
  • Soybean, jojoba, sunflower and apricot kernel oils – these all have high natural moisturizing factors that will reduce dryness and retain moisture
  • Grape seed and olive fruit oils – powerful antioxidants that diminish the damaging effects of sun and enhance healthy collagen and elastin
  • Shea butter – a terrific skin hydrating ingredient
  • Cocoa Seed Butter and Vitamin E
  • This is a vegan formula and is free of gluten, parabens, sulfates, and mineral oil

Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil ingredients

This botanical oil is very light and doesn’t make my skin feel oily or greasy. It absorbs quickly so I don’t have to wait to put on clothes. I can still use my Aveeno unscented body lotion right after my shower and then layer this oil over it. The combination keeps me moisturized for 2 days before I have to apply more.

I highly recommend Farmhouse Fresh Quinsyberry Body Oil as a gift for anyone – grad, mom, sister, friend. At $18 it’s a beautiful bottle and will make someone’s eyes light up with delight. While you may never find me at a bath and body store, you will find me stocking up on Farmhouse Fresh in general and Quinsyberry Body Oil in particular.

Two ways to refresh and detox: Ban Refresh Cooling Body Cloths and ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil

Ban Refresh Cooling Body Cloths and ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil

Ban Refresh Cooling Body Cloths and ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil

I resolved to focus on health for 2016 and so far so good. I want healthier skin and a healthier body. I’m working out with a personal trainer twice a week and riding my bike/doing the treadmill/attending yoga classes/suffering through core workouts at least three other days each week. I’m also taking good care of my skin – religiously washing my face at night, washing my makeup brushes once a week, and using treatments with proven ingredients.

While I feel so much better physically, I do find that since I am going from work to workout I am always wanting to freshen up.  Two products I am finding invaluable for this are Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths ($3.29) and ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil ($68).

Ban

Ban Refresh Cooling Body Cloths

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths are always in my gym bag! They instantly wipe away  sweat and grime, refreshing me after even the most grueling workout. I like to use them to clean my hands during my workout too – gym floors and equipment can be kind of grimy. These wipes aren’t overly wet so they don’t leave me all sticky and trying to dry off. They have this powder finish that is soft and smells so good. I love them.

ESPA

ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil

ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil

I am also loving the ESPA Detoxifying Body Oil. Body oils in general are an awesome way to keep skin soft and supple, and this one is incredibly refreshing. The grapefruit scent smells clean and happy, and the sweet almond oil is terrific for skin hydration. It is detoxifying in that it boosts circulation (which also helps reduce the appearance of cellulite — hooray!).  Cypress and juniper berry also help stimulate the lymphatic system which then flushes away toxins. This elegant oil is refreshing and so good for the body that it’s totally worth the price tag.

If you are looking for a fresh, healthy year, here are two products that will help you get there quickly.  Here’s to a happy healthy new year!  – Lisa

Gorgeous skin the organic way with Kypris Body Elixer: Inflorescence

Kypris Body Elixir: Inflorescence

Kypris Body Elixir: Inflorescence

Already a huge fan of body oils, my latest one – Kypris Body Elixir: Inflorescence – has me swooning.  It’s organic luxury that is so good for the skin I feel positively virtuous every time I use it.

KYPRIS is an organic line of holistic skin care with wild-crafted, sustainable grown ingredients.  You may have heard of them before since they were Green Spa Network’s 2014 Green Product Company of the Year. Entrepreneur and feminist champion Chase Polan created this line which debuted in 2012. Kypris has six serums and elixirs the moisturize, protect, and repair the skin.

Body Elixir: Inflorescence  ($95) is skin care for the body.  It’s the first product on the market with actives typically found in face products.  Kypris says this body oil is “equal parts ecstatic beauty experience, targeted, multi-active skin care, lymphatic movement, aromatherapy and AM/PM self-care ritual tool”.  The oils and essential oils are organic, wild crafted, co-op sourced, local, and sustainable procured.

Kypris Body Elixir: Inflorescence

Kypris Body Elixir: Inflorescence

I am absolutely in love with the Arts and Crafts era, so I adore the packaging.  The body oil comes in a beautiful felt bag that houses the  3.4 fl oz glass bottle with a lace motif design that was inspired by Arts and Crafts.  The body oil isn’t greasy, and it leaves skin unbelievably soft, plumped, and luminous.  It has a definite herbal scent when first applied, but the scent is gone within five minutes so it doesn’t conflict with your favorite fragrance.

Kypris Body Elixir: Inflorescence

The fabulous ingredients treat your body with the same loving care that great skin products treat your face.  Chase Polan developed this oil because she knows that women typically take good care of skin from the neck up…but the decollete and beyond are often completely forgotten.  Just take a look at these amazing ingredients that not only hydrate and enhance elasticity, but also give an antioxidant boost to SPF:

Morinda Oil From the kernels of The Miracle Tree which thrives in extreme weather conditions and yields parts so nutrient-dense they are prized in malnutrition relief and wellness circles alike. KYPRIS’ moringa kernel oil is from a co-operative effort that uses the leaves for hunger relief and the kernels for the oil. A wealth of vitamins, nutrients, and fatty acids from the kernels of this miraculous tree that flourishes even in drought soothes and nourishes stubborn, dry skin. The kernels can be used to regrow the trees but so can clippings of the leaves. The kernels can clarify water but not purify water to an extent that it is potable, so they are best used for their nourishing oil which is not traditionally consumed. The Moringa Kernel oil in this product benefits Trees for Life. (Nicaragua)

Prickly PearWild crafted from the Arizona high desert and the result of a 3+ year collaboration with a wild crafting group, our organic, wild crafted Prickly Pear seed oil is a unique wealth of amino acids and vitamin E that soothes stressed and tired skin.

TamanuOrganically grown and pressed by a co-operative in Tahiti, Tamanu oil inspires cellular renewal, is used in France to help heal burned skin, and is fantastic for enhancing the elasticity of pregnant bellies.

SunflowerLocal, organic blooms yield a golden seed oil wealthy in sun-protective beta carotene and an auspicious fatty acid composition for a delicate emollience.

Neroli and Sweet OrangeClinically tested with zero evidence of irritation or photo-toxicity in the sun, our sun-safe blend of neroli and sweet orange essential oils are aroma-therapeutically beneficial for both the nervous system and the skin. Uplifting, energizing, soothing, toning to both the nervous system and the skin.

Iris Leaf Stem Cells and Vitamin C EsterCreated using the best of green technologies to inspire and protect collagen and to plump skin to a vibrant luminosity.

Body Elixir: Inflorescence retails for $95 is available through estheticians, skin care spas and centers, physicians’ offices, apothecaries, and online at www.kyprisbeauty.com.  Do your body a huge favor and pick up a bottle of this fabulous body oil.  – Lisa

Planning a Labor Day getaway? You’ll want to take some CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray

CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray

CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray

I am not ashamed to say that  CapriClear® had me at the word ‘coconut’. I love all things coconut…sweets, cooking oil, fragrance, skin care. It’s just so darn good for so many things.  So of course I jumped the chance to review the CapriClear® 100% Fractionated Coconut Oil Spray ($10.99 for the travel size).

This is a terrific drugstore find that is available at CVS, Walgreens, and Ulta. I got the travel size, and trust me this gem is going with me on my Labor Day Weekend trip! The ingredients are pretty simple – 100% fractionated coconut oil (Caprylic / Capric Triglycerides). That’s it. This spray-on moisturizer is all natural, hypoallergenic, colorless and odorless. I was definitely hoping it would smell like coconut, but it doesn’t smell like anything. Actually that makes it more versatile since you can use it knowing it won’t clash with any other fragrance.

CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray

CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray

I use this right after I shower. Once I spray this on, dry skin, flakiness, and irritation is a thing of the past. My wrist became irritated by my watch, so I applied the 100% Fractionated Coconut Oil Spray for a few days. Even though I kept wearing my watch, the irritation disappeared. The oil dries very quickly so there is no wait time before putting on clothes. It does wonders for skin and also works on nails, scars, and stretch marks. It even helps tame hair frizz and flyaways. Sounds like everything I need for a weekend getaway!

CapriClear Coconut Oil Spray

If you are wondering what exactly Fractionated Coconut Oil is, here’s what CapriClear® says:

Fractionated coconut oil (FCO) is a fraction (portion) of the whole oil, in which the different medium-chain fatty acids are separated for specific uses. Lauric acid, a 12-carbon chain fatty acid, is removed. Fractionated coconut oil may also be referred to as caprylic/capric triglyceride oil or medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil because it is primarily the medium-chain caprylic (8 carbons) and capric (10 carbons) acids that make up the bulk of the oil. MCT oil is most frequently used for medical applications and special diets. As part of this method, the familiar coconut smell is eliminated.

It has no emulsifiers, fragrances, animal products, artificial dyes, preservatives or other additives such as sulfates, parabens or toxins that can lead to skin irritation.

I am a big believer in body oils, and this is definitely one of the best I have tried. Be sure to check it out at CVS, Walgreens, or Ulta.  I know you will love this TSA friendly travel essential.  – Lisa
