FarmHouse Fresh Body Lotions and Hand Lotions
As a professional globe trotter, I am forever on the lookout for innovative skincare products that are multi-functional for traveling purposes. If you’re familiar with my reviews, you’ll know by now that I am obsessed with good skincare habits, particularly those that have to do with moisturizing (both face and body). What some of you may not know is that in my every day purse, I carry a pouch that has travel sized everything. From small toothbrush with toothpaste set to eyeliner, compact powder, mini facial wash, dental floss- you name it, I’ll likely have it in miniature.
The reason for this “Target” in my purse? There are times when I have last minute travel plans, whether it’s for a last minute celebrity interview where I have to jump on a plane and stay overnight without suitcase in hand or non-work related situations where my boyfriend and I decide to spontaneously spend a night in Napa. My life’s journey has prepared me to be never unprepared.
If we’re talking about traveling via commercial aviation, you all know the liquid carry-on limitations. That’s how I came to fall in love with Farm House Fresh’s newest addition to their already awesome line-up of skincare products- their Body Milk Lotions in travel size that double as hand lotion. These 2.4 oz tubes come in at US $14 per tube and last an indeterminable amount of time. I’ve been carrying one tube in my everyday purse for about 2 months now and use it as hand lotion on a several times per day basis and I’ve barely made a dent in the tube.
Like all Farm House Fresh skincare products, these Body Milks turned Hand Lotions are paraben and sulfate free. They’re also infused with Vitamin E-rich rice bran oil, jojoba seed oil, sweet almond, avocado and sesame. You can check out my other FHF reviews below to read more about why I’m a huge fan of their products.
These milk lotions do triple duty- moisturizer for body, moisturizer for hand, and last but not least, they provide a lovely scent that nullifies the need for perfume. I can’t stress enough how functional these tubes are- fitting in just about every purse I have (except for tiny evening clutches). These come in 4 distinct scents- Melon, Sweet Cream, Backcountry Caramel and Ginger Sorbet.
Because I have sensitivity towards strong perfumes, my favorites are the Sweet Cream- the lightest out of the 4, and the Ginger Sorbet- the freshest scent of them all. For those of you who prefer stronger scents, you’ll enjoy the ultra fruity Melon and for those who prefer a sweet scent, Backcountry Caramel is for you.
These milk creams do a lovely job of light to normal hydration for the body and a just perfect hydration for hands. Remember- after the eyes and neck, hands are the next part of us that shows aging the quickest. We are constantly washing our hands and while necessary, that washing depletes our skin of its natural moisture. These milk lotions will help solve that problem, keeping your hands smooth, wrinkle-free and youthful.
Did I mention that these make adorable and much-appreciated gifts?
