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?

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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??).

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.

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! If you are like me and love a body scrub then Sweet Cream is going to thrill your body and senses. Can you see why I couldn’t get this out of my mind for Makeup Wars?  —  Marcia

Any season is perfect for FarmHouse Fresh Butter Rum Body Scrub

Yo ho ho and a jar of FHF Butter Rum

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

FarmHouse Fresh One Fine Day Flawless Face Polish makes a great addition to my skincare life

one-fine-day-flawless-face-polish-10

FarmHouse Fresh is the one brand that changed my mind about fragranced products. When this blog was started almost 7 years ago I refused to use anything with a fragrance to it. You’ve probably noticed that my blog partner Lisa is the only one that reviews any true fragrances and at least 80% of scented products. After her second (or so) FarmHouse Fresh review she insisted that I take one of the products to try out. Well Lisa was right and I’ve been on the FarmHouse Fresh bandwagon ever since.

Farmhouse Fresh One Fine Day

FarmHouse Fresh One Fine Day

During the scurry of buying for the winter holidays FarmHouse Fresh had some amazing extras with purchases. At first I bought my essentials like FarmHouse Fresh Watermelon Basil Body Scrub and another amazing body oil (this time in Clementine) and received a great gwp. More offers came in and I couldn’t resist so while looking around I noticed One Fine Day Flawless Face Polish and knew that was going in my cart.

So many reasons that I’m glad I bought this! It’s both a cleanser and exfoliator in one. It’s gentle as can be so I can and have used it daily. It washes off so easily without leaving behind little scrubbies. I always use a wash cloth or preferably The Body Shop Luxury Flannel Washcloth which is more like a shammy in the way it works.

The texture of One Fine Day is unlike any other cleanser I’ve tried. It’s almost balm like without being a balm. It’s very thick and you only need to scoop out a small amount for your entire face.

Farmhouse Fresh One Fine Day

Wet your face with warm water and apply the cleanser with your fingers. I start in a circular motion and am able to exfoliate my face without it feeling rough at all. I still use another exfoliator on some mornings when I’m in the shower and can wash off a heavier one but this is perfect for daily use.

Farmhouse Fresh One Fine Day

Now let me address the fragrance which I can do in one word – yummy – but of course that’s not enough. It’s sweet because it’s a sugar scrub but it also contains a hint of natural grapefruit and citrus oils. And if you get some on your lips just lick it off since it tastes sugary and not bitter.

One Fine Day is good for all skin types, even those of you who might have rosacea. It helps to reduce redness with its gentleness. It hasn’t ever stripped my skin, instead it’s left it feeling soft and hydrated. One Fine Day is 98.5% natural, and like all FarmHouse Fresh products, it is Paraben and Sulfate Free.

Farmhouse Fresh One Fine Day Shea Sugar Face Polish

Farmhouse Fresh One Fine Day Shea Sugar Face Polish

FarmHouse Fresh even told us how the product got its name: “Shea butter’s many vitamins quickly penetrate to nourish skin while the micro sugar crystals clear the way for having one truly fine day.”

If you haven’t gotten onto FarmHouse Fresh’s mailing list you need to consider that since they often do gifts that you won’t be able to resist. I’m glad I didn’t resist and found a cleansing exfoliator that makes my day just fine.  —  Marcia

You need Farmhouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms to get through this winter

Farmhouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms

Farmhouse Fresh Hydrating Lip Balms

If you aren’t subscribed to the Farmhouse Fresh website you are making a big mistake. In December I took advantage of this amazing site by stocking my closets with the items I already love and new ones I’m now loving. Farmhouse Fresh completely changed my personal feelings about fragranced skincare and I’m now addicted to their products. I just recently passed up a great special since I’d fulfilled my dreams already but if they keep up offering some fabulous gifts then you don’t want to miss them. Two items I didn’t have to purchase though were their terrific HYDRATING LIP BALMS since I was sent them to review. These two balms will make winter a lot more tolerable.

Two of Farmhouse Fresh’s best sellers are their Whoopie! Cream products as well as Coconut Beach and those are the two scents that they chose for their new Hydrating Lip Balms. whoopie-cream-hydrating-lip-balm-7Whoopie! Cream Hydrating Lip Balm has the same delicious smell as the other Whoopie! Cream products. It’s sweet but not overwhelmingly sweet. To me it smells like an enhanced buttercream frosting. It’s 96% natural, gluten free, and paraben and sulfate free. It’s so moisturizing on your lips that you won’t even mind if you have to reapply. It contains both jojoba oil and shea butter to keep your lips kissing soft.coconut-beach-hydrating-lipbalm-7

Coconut Beach Hydrating Lip Balm knocked me out. At first I thought I’d be a good blog partner and let Lisa (our coconut queen) have this but no way. I am totally in love with the way this smells and feels. Now I understand why people are coco for coconut.

Coconut Beach Hydrating Lip Balm

These lip balms help with already chapped lips but even more with preventing them before they start. Like the Whoopie! Cream you want to reapply this because it’s so delicious. It will take you away from winter in your mind and make you think of warmth and tropical breezes. If you like coconut you can’t pass this up.

When you order from Farmhouse Fresh be sure that you check off the box that says Bag of Free Samples as it will give you the opportunity to test and smell so many of their products. My buys included a sample bag with about 10 packets as well as beautiful postcards and a booklet.
