Let’s tingle a little with FarmHouse Fresh Mighty Tighty Mask #farmhousefresh

Hello, I’m calling in from Michigan and I’m a long time facial mask user.

Hi Marcia, thanks for calling the facial mask hotline. What can I do for you?

I started using FarmHouse Fresh MIGHTY Tighty Mask to tighten, firm and boost facial radiance a few months ago. This is a banana and turmeric scented mask. Actually it smells like banana Laffy Taffy to me. But my question is, why hasn’t it turned color like my fresh bananas do?

Good question Marcia. Even though MIGHTY TIGHTY is 98% natural and a vegan cream we use other ingredients to mix with the banana pulp and banana peel to keep this mask fresh for months.

What exactly does the tumeric do for the mask?

Tumeric is just one of the ingredients and it contains significant amounts of antioxidants that will fight free radical damage.

Sounds interesting but what other ingredients make MIGHTY Tighty so unusual? I find that it’s different than all the other FarmHouse Fresh masks I use and love.

FarmHouse Fresh MIGHTY Tighty Mask

Before I answer, let me ask you what makes this different.

Well it tingles, I mean really tingles and it tightens my skin while it’s on my face as well as afterwards. Is that typical?

I’m glad you brought that up. Let me tell you a little more about the ingredients. Banana pulp and peel are rich in bioactive compounds including antioxidants, pro vitamin A (which the body converts to retinol), cartenoids and phenolics that help skin with healthy growth, repair, and protection.

Turmerones, found in Turmeric oil that is extracted from the roots of Turmeric contain significant amounts of antioxidants that fight free radical damage.

Echinacea Purpurea is extracted to yield meaningful levels of the most lipophilic active compounds in the plant which help reduce the look of wrinkles, sagging, and loss of plumpness in aging.

Bentonite and Illite clays have very high absorption capacity that pull impurities, toxins and excess sebaceous oils from the skin’s surface – purifying and detoxifying. Blood circulation and oxygenation is improved, bringing a radiant glow to skin through rich mineral content including calcium, potassium, magnesium, and silicon among others.

FarmHouse Fresh MIGHTY Tighty Mask

So it all boils down to these ingredients helping reduce the look of wrinkles and sagging then. Interesting. There’s no amount of time to wear this listed on the box, what’s recommended?

The reason we don’t have a time on this is because it all depends on your skin’s sensitivity with this mask. Start by leaving it on until you feel/see it dry. Then wash it off with warm water. Some people can build up a tolerance for leaving it on longer, some like about 10 minutes or so that it takes to dry. And remember, this isn’t really made for sensitive skin. It may be gluten free, paraben free and sulfate free but it’s still quite tingly.

Thanks so much Facial Mask hotline. You’ve helped me a lot. I like FHF MIGHTY TIGHTY but I realize now that I can’t use it just before going out since my face can look a little too red if I leave it on too long. But it sure does make my skin look refreshed and feeling really soft.  —  Marcia

My 3 musts for May or any time #farmhousefresh #ageloc #shickintuition

FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Tonic, Schick Intuition f.a.b. razor, NuSkin LumiSpa Treatment Cleanser

As we are closing out the month of May I wanted you to know about 3 products that are getting a ton of love in my house. I sometimes forget when I use a product constantly that I should be sharing so I’m remedying that right now with three favorites.

samples, some affiliates

ageLOC LumiSpa

ageLOC LumiSpa charging

I reviewed the ageLOC LumiSpa from Nu Skin months ago but at the time I didn’t have the cleanser. The company graciously sent it to me so I can see why these two go together like mac & cheese or Harry & Meghan. Once I received the Treatment Cleanser my experience with the ageLOC LumiSpa went from great to awesome. The “brush” on the LumiSpa is unlike other cleansing machines so having this cleanser that’s included in the system makes my skin smoother and my pores cleaner.

ageLOC LumiSpa

ageLOC LumiSpa Treatment Cleanser

The cleanser is included in the kit and also can be purchased separately. There are five different types (sensitive, normal/combo, dry, acne, and oily) so that all skin types are covered by ageLOC. They are formulated to cushion your skin while the LumiSpa does it dual action job but they work well without the machine. This is a great addition to your skincare routine.

FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Toner

As you can see from my recent photo of FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Toner, it’s gotten a lot of use! In spite of the fact that I moan about fragrance in products, FarmHouse Fresh is the exception to the rule. Whenever FHF comes our way Lisa and I have to argue over who gets to review the products and happily I won this time. What sold me on this is the catchphrase: “Poof! go your pores.” As a teen I had very oily skin and awful blackheads. As an adult I’m glad that I had the oily skin since I’ve aged better because of it but the blackheads led to large pores that have plagued me all my life. So any time a product promises to help with pores I’m going to want to try it.

What makes this toner stand out is that it’s an alcohol-free toner that will smoothe skin while helping with moisture. It uses U.S. grown organic aronia berries which is one of the highest antioxidant fruits ever. It helps reduce the look of fine lines too. Now we all know that the pores aren’t going away so the best we can hope for is that they appear like they aren’t there. It contains Rose Water, Aronia Berry Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ascorbyl Glucoside.

Rose water – the steamed distillate of Rosa Damascena flower – hydrating, anti-inflammatory, and calming.

Aronia Berry extract – Contains the highest recorded antioxidant concentration of any fruit or vegetable.

Sodium Hyaluronate – the salt form of skin-identical hyaluronic acid – which can help boost skin’s moisture content and prevent moisture loss.

Ascorbyl Glucoside – a stable form of vitamin C and glucose – a combination that functions as an antioxidant to help skin preserve key substances needed to look younger and brighter.

FarmHouse Fresh Vitamin Berry Facial Toner

The smell is really delightful. I don’t care for rose so at first I was hesitant but it’s the berry that comes through. While you can spray it on during the day I like to use it on a cotton pad in the morning before moisturizer. FarmHouse Fresh is a brand that I totally trust, one that is 99% NATURAL | VEGAN | GLUTEN-FREE | NO PARABENS | NO SULFATES | NO PHTHALATES. Yes, you want this and need it!

Schick Intuition f.a.b.

Now the last is the Schick® Intuition® f.a.b.™. I don’t know how I lived without this. I received it and put it aside for a while since a razor is a razor is a razor. But this has two completely different blades in it so the concept of shaving has been turned on its head.

The unique razor head shaves both forwards and backwards. For someone who wasn’t encouraged to shave I never really knew if I was doing it right. But now I know and this head is the bomb. If you don’t want to buy the whole razor you’ll find that the razor head fits Venus razors too. I’ve already ordered refill blades.

Schick Intuition f.a.b. razor

The bi-directional blades allow you to shave either up or down without even lifting the razor. I admit that I have to shave certain areas on my face. I have dark, thick hairs that make me feel like people are staring at me. So about three times a week I shave those hairs. To get close to my nose I can now shave up! You don’t know how easy it makes it for me now.

The Schick® Intuition® f.a.b.™ razor makes shaving everywhere easier and almost enjoyable. No woman wants to shave legs, underarms or face but most of us need to. Might as well use a unique razor that was made with us in mind.

What are your May musts? I’m sure all 3 of these will be June musts for me too.  —  Marcia

Going back to my youth with Farmhouse Fresh Moon Dip and Three Milk Ageless Night Cream

Farmhouse Fresh Moon Dip and Three Milk Ageless Night Cream

Ah youth. Isn’t it in the movie It’s a Wonderful Life that the grumpy old man says it’s wasted on young people??  I sure didn’t appreciate it enough when I was young! Now all I try to do it get it back. Farmhouse Fresh has some really lovely products that do everything possible to capture some of that magic.

Farmhouse Fresh Moon Dip

Farmhouse Fresh Moon Dip

For your body, the Moon Dip Back to Youth Ageless Body Mousse ($32) is truly incredible. I mean seriously…if I could eat this with a spoon I would. And the accompanying silver applicator is almost a spoon, so no wonder I keep having this thought! This body mousse has the most amazingly light, fluffy texture…it’s like soft, fluffy, pillowy goodness.

The scent is incredibly delicious, a sweet mixture of milk and oats and honey. The ingredients are exactly what skin loves – emollient oils that deeply hydrate thirsty skin and peptides that fight crepey, wrinkly skin. It’s a thrill to smooth this all over from neck to ankles. Moon Dip Back to Youth Ageless Body Mousse is a major home run.

Farmhouse Fresh Three Milk Ageless Night Cream

Farmhouse Fresh Three Milk Ageless Night Cream

For your face, Farmhouse Fresh has Three Milk Ageless Night Cream ($45) to get back that youthful glow. This is actually Farmhouse Fresh’s top-selling face cream in a night-time version. The Three Milk Ageless Night Cream has a time release retinol that is very gentle so it doesn’t irritate skin. The cream is very thick and ric, so if you have dry skin this is a great night cream for you.

The cream doesn’t sink all the way in when you apply it. It’s not supposed to…it leaves a barrier so you can sleep knowing that it’s protecting the peptides and the retinol, allowing them to work under the surface. Even if you are a restless sleeper who tosses and turns, you aren’t going to leave this night cream all over your pillow. When I use this, my skin definitely feels super soft and looks very glowy in the morning. I use this under my eyes with no problem and it works especially well as a neck cream. Farmhouse Fresh’s own tests showed a 45% reduction in the appearance of deep wrinkles within weeks. That is definitely going back to your youth!

You can find the super dreamy Moon Dip Back to Youth Ageless Body Mousse and the skin nourishing Three Milk Ageless Night Cream 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 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 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.

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.
