At this year's International Spa and Beauty Conference, held in New York City over the weekend, I assisted with an exclusive bath and body line, made in Fresco, Texas, called Farmhouse Fresh. And, I fell in love with their products – the clean ingredients, delicious fragrances and whimsical, reusable glass jars and jugs! Plus, I spent two fabulous days with the nicest, hardest working Texan women [one by way of San Diego] you will ever meet. Always straight-talkers, never once did anyone push a sale, or try to sway a customer to buy a moisturizer not right for her.
Launched over five years ago, and rapidly growing in popularity, the skin care line is sold at luxury spas across the country, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Red Mountain, the Ritz-Carltons and the Gaylord Resorts. The fine grain skin scrubs, rich shea butters/massage creams and whole milk-chicory root bath soaks are 88% - 99% natural, as well as, paraben and sulfate free. Customers, who include Oprah Winsfrey and Courtney Cox, rave about how good FHF's body products feel and smell.
The Honey Heel Glaze (vitamin enriched to heal dry, cracked heels, elbows and cuticles), the Agave Nectar Ageless Oil (clients smooth it on skin after a bath and on the ends of their hair), and the Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard (a double moisturizer of aloe and shea butter for dry skin) are a few of my personal favorites. Fluffy Bunny Shea Butter Cream smells like mint julep, cream and a hint of lavender. And, a sweet scented shea butter whip, appropriately named Whoopie Cream, is the company's number 1 best seller.
You get generous portions at reasonable prices; and the cute, clever packaging makes any of the offerings a great gift!
