Farmhouse Fresh's Cheese-Shaped Milk Soaps Are The Perfect Gift For The Dairy Lover In Your Life
If you have someone obsessed with cheese on your holiday gifting list, you're about to hit the stocking-stuffer jackpot. Farmhouse Fresh's Milk Soaps are shaped like artisan cheese wedges you would pick up from stores you actually can't afford. They might not be an actual topper for fancy sandwiches, but they will get your skin feeling soft and pampered.
Made with goats milk or cows milk, each soap includes gourmet ingredients like pistachio, chia, lavender, blueberry, oatmeal, or honey. Even more impressive, all the ingredients that go into making these fun all-natural soaps are American sourced.
“We believe in bringing the freshest local farm ingredients into your bath routine, so we sourced U.S. farm-grown ingredients, including goat and cow milks, to create four new Milk Soaps shaped like fine cheese wedges," Shannon McLinden, CEO of FarmHouse Fresh, tells Bustle via email. “These creamy gourmet soaps are hand-poured and packaged — they are literally farm to bath.”
Bring your cheeseboard into the bathroom, because there's no other way to display these soap wedges. Sprigs of rosemary and olive garnishes are optional.
The soaps are 97 percent natural and free of parabens and sulfates, and retail for $14 a pop. To give you an idea what kind of scents and ingredients you can choose from, below are the options. Get ready for your mouth to water.
1. Blueberry Chia Seed Whole Milk Soap
Blueberry Chia Seed Whole Milk Soap, $14, Farmhouse Fresh
This soap wedge features blueberries from Oregon — which are "so ripe you can almost taste them through the packaging," the product description reads — and whole milk from the Midwest. Other ingredients that make up this soap are olive and coconut oil, rice bran oil, and chia seeds.
In case you're wondering why you would want to wash your skin with a milk-based product, whole milk contains buttery fats and vitamins A, which helps to nourish and hydrate your skin. Those are the ingredients that leave you feeling silky smooth rather than stripped of hydration.
2. Pistachio Cream Goats Milk Soap
Pistachio Cream Goats Milk Soap, $14, Farmhouse Fresh
This particular wedge features two star ingredients: California pistachios and free range goats milk. Just like whole milk, goats milk contains buttery fats and vitamin A, leaving your skin oh-so-soft.
3. Honey Lavender Whole Milk Soap
Honey Lavender Whole Milk Soap, $14, Farmhouse Fresh
Featuring Texas honey, whole milk from the Midwest, and Washington lavender, this mixture is soothing and floral all at once. Hitting all the spring notes, from lavender to honey, you will feel like you're permanently in May, even while you're in the butt hole of winter. Who doesn't want an escape like that?
4. Oatmeal Goats Milk Soap
Oatmeal Goats Milk Soap, $14, Farmhouse Fresh
This bar features goats milk from California and organic oats all the way from Kansas. The creamy concoction will help get your skin velvety smooth, and has also won the American Spa Professional's Choice Awards, meaning spas love what this wedge does to the skin. Not a bad endorsement.
5. Local Gourmet Milk Soaps Gift Set
Local Gourmet Milk Soaps Gift Set, $124, Farmhouse Fresh
Do you have a hostess you want to make swoon, or a friend that's obsessed with cheese? This cheese wheel is the perfect quirky gift for the holidays — and an impressive one at that. Coming in a hand-crafted, Wisconsin-made, Aspen wood cheese box with a lid, eight wedges are nestled inside hay. You get two of each variety listed above, and the display is formed like a cheese round. Your giftee is going to feel tickled and pampered all at once.
For those dairy lovers in your life, you can't go wrong with this cheeky cheese wedge soap. Just please tell them to refrain from digging in.
