The other day I was browsing around at The Paper Store, a new gift shop that opened near my house (I believe there are locations all over New England). It's a great store because they have jewelry, cute boho clothes, home decor and of course, beauty products. As I was browsing the beauty section I saw a table of bath and body products from a company I had never heard of before- Farmhouse Fresh. Based out of Dallas, Texas, they believe in creating natural (up to 99.6%!), whimsical products that are totally giftable (or to keep for yourself).
They had some testers out and the Agave Nectar Body Oil ($16) caught my eye. When you have dry skin, body oils are the best because there's no water in them like lotions have, so it doesn't evaporate from the skin. It sinks in and lasts all day long.
"If you love a deep-soaking, luscious after-shower body oil, Agave Nectar will love you back! The scent is heavenly light - an oat/milk scent (comparable to a to-die-for tiramisu dessert) that women and men alike adore. But it's so much more than a body oil. Made with a special blend of extracts tested and proven to reduce the rate of your skin's water loss - one of the culprits in signs of aging. Barley, Sandalwood and Amurense bark combine with Agave Nectar and a blend of natural oils to deeply hydrate without a greasy afterfeel. This bottle of glistening comfort even turns white in the water, so any droplets on your clothing or sheets remove clean in the wash. No staining. How brilliant! 96% natural and like all FarmHouse Fresh products, Agave Nectar Ageless Body Oil is Paraben & Sulfate free".Here's the ingredients panel (click the photo for a close up):
This comes in a beautiful glass jar with a pump but I had to take 1 star off for the glass. It makes it more luxurious to look at than plastic, but also a potential hazard since I'm holding it with wet/oily hands over a tile bathroom floor. I can see it shattering into a million pieces.
I love the formula- it's so luxurious and it works! My skin actually glows when I wear it.
I so love this soft scent before bed, but not sure I would want to smell like oatmeal and milk all day.
Really, it's more like a 4.5. This is my favorite body oil out of all the ones I've tried so far. If it wasn't in a heavy glass bottle and came in a few other scents (maybe a really light and fresh one for daytime) it would be perfection!
You can buy it at The Paper Store or at Farmhouse Fresh.
