Some of you might already know this, but Bend, Oregon had a pretty rough winter this year. There was a lot of snow, a lot of ice, and a few extra “snow days” that we hadn’t anticipated. So, these early signs of spring that we’re already starting to see are thoroughly being enjoyed and celebrated at the farm. But, we also just realized that it’s probably time for us to start getting our skin looking it’s best for the hot summer days ahead…
So whether you’ve had a rough winter or not, we decided to share some of our favorite spring-inspired products that are sure to have your skin looking (and feeling) it’s best and in gear for the summer months ahead.
#1 Lip Butters, 1 for $2.95 - 4 for $7.95
These all natural Lip Butters are perfect for kids and adults and come in a variety of sweet scents. Created after our serious struggle to find a lip balm that actually keeps our lips hydrated, our Lip Butters are made using a combination of rich butters and oils and even has a natural dose of SPF due to the Shea Butter. Available in a single tube or pack of four, make sure you get your hands on some of these this year.
#2 Natural Foot Scrub Brush, $5.95
At first glance, this might seem like an odd thing to associate with spring, but this natural bristled brush will help you get your feet looking and feeling their best. Called an “exfoliating powerhouse” by some, the stiff natural bristles do all the hard work for you, removing unsightly dry skin from even the toughest feet.
#3 A tub of Sugar Scrub, $9.85
If you haven’t experienced it for yourself, our Sugar Scrub is an easy and affordable way to get your skin looking and feeling it’s absolute best. Made using all-natural ingredients, you’ll find that the Sugar Scrub is actually a wonderful compliment to any Milk Bath. The best part about this Sugar Scrub is that it’s made using only high-quality coconut and olive oils (unlike the GMO soybean, canola, or vegetable oils that you’ll find in many big-name sugar scrubs). Using high-quality oils is more spendy than the ingredients used in other sugar scrubs, but we refuse to compromise on quality to ensure our customers get the best sugar scrub possible.
#4 A bar (or two) of Goat Milk Soap, $4.95
Yes ladies and gentleman, it’s time for us to start preparing our skin for the warm weather that’s soon to come! With seasonal transitions, many people find that their skin is dry, dull, and could use a little TLC. If you’re not sure where to start, grab a bar of Goat Milk Soap! Each bar is packed with rich moisturizers, vitamins and minerals your skin craves. Plus, because we use a limited number of all natural ingredients, our soap works with your skin, not against it, gently buffing away dead skin cells and locking in moisture.
We have 15 different scents to choose from (check all of them out here), but here are a few scents that might fit the bill this special time of year:
Looking for something that’s truly spring-inspired? Try our English Garden or Vienna Rose scents.
If you think that spring is great, but you’re just an overall outdoors lover, grab a bar of Mount Bachelor Pine.
- When it comes to wearing short sleeved shirts and shorts, eczema and psoriasis are definitely not fun to deal with. If you can relate, pick up our go-to for sensitive skin, Oatmeal & Honey.
- If you’re a gardener who’s looking for a little extra oomph, try our Lavender Blossom (it’s packed with tiny lavender buds that help exfoliate as you clean).
#5 A bottle of All-Natural Goat Milk Lotion, $9.95
Have you ever taken a second to look at the ingredients that were in a normal bottle of lotion? You’ll probably be surprised to know that alcohol (in various forms) is typically one of the top five ingredients listed on the label. The irony of this is that alcohol zaps moisture from your skin and actually dries out your skin. If moisturized skin is what you’re after, this is the lotion you need.
Our Goat Milk Lotion is free of:
- GMO oils
- Synthetic preservatives
- And other toxic ingredients
Each bottle of our lotion is hypoallergenic and gluten free which is exactly why we use it as the main ingredient in our DIY Natural Sunscreen recipe. Perfect for your entire body! If you’re looking for an everyday lotion that’ll do what it’s supposed to do (keep your skin moisturized and packed with nutrients your skin is craving) then pick up a bottle today!
