I feel truly spoiled!
My skin tends to be dry and itchy, so goat milk is one of my favorite skincare ingredients (see this post). With it being winter, there couldn’t have been a more perfect time to receive a package from Honey Sweetie Acres! One of the items in it was the Goat Milk Lotion in Starry Night.
The goat milk used by Honey Sweetie Acres is superior to most other companies as they use real milk from their own Nigerian Dwarf Goats, which are renowned for extremely high butterfat. Nutrition, feeding, and health are a top focus. Additionally, they use an organic coconut oil base, high oleic olive oil, and never any GMO products. The products are preservative-free, with only local honey, natural antioxidants and botanicals to prevent oxidation (Honey Sweetie Acres, 2015).
Honey Sweetie Acres Goat Milk Lotion has an impressive ingredient list, including aloe vera, natural glyceryl ester, shea butter, silk amino acids, sunflower oil, coconut oil, raw goat milk, coconut fatty acid, and Vitamin E. I love that there are no irritating chemicals or alcohols.
The lotion comes in Vanilla Bean, Lavender, Honeysuckle, Cherry Almond, Unscented, and Starry Night. I got the Starry Night, which is described as being a slightly fruity and sweet blend of rose, musk, grape, peach, plum, and a few citrus notes (Honey Sweetie Acres, 2015). The scent is just right, not too strong, but not too light. My other half even commented on how great I smelled!
The problem I have with many thick lotions and creams is that they are often sticky or difficult to spread. That is NOT the case with Honey Sweetie Acres Goat Milk Lotion- it’s thick enough to be insanely moisturizing and soothing, but it spreads and absorbs very easily, and is not at all sticky. With most lotions, I have to reapply throughout the day. With this one, I apply once in the morning, and once when I get out of the shower at night, that’s it! In the summer, I’ll probably only need it once a day.
Another plus is the price point- Honey Sweetie Acres’ products are very reasonably priced, especially for the artisan quality. You can order soap and lotion, and even with shipping, you’ll still pay less than most high end brands. Four ounces is just $6.75, and eight ounces is $11.95. Orders over $50 ship for free, and there is a flat rate shipping charge of just $7.95 for orders less than $50. Since soaps and skincare products can tend to be heavy and bulky, that’s a really good deal.
The verdict? Well, as much as I love my 100% Pure body cream, Honey Sweetie Acres Goat Milk Lotion has become my new fave! I almost wish it didn’t last as long because it’s truly a joy to use. So, head on over to www.honeysweetieacres.com and place your order so you can have soft, smooth skin all winter long!
