In just a few weeks the once-a-day bathers will become twice-a-day bathers. Summer heat is creeping up on us with a few cool nights making their last visits. I was super excited late last year to have been invited by the Cream Factory team to check out the brand. The Cream Factory is a goat milk centric bath and body range, their biggest product group being their ever popularly fragrant Bath creams and each have an added natural ingredient to flag a specific skin benefit. The ones I have are the Goat’s Milk and Honey and the Goat’s Milk and Avocado, each type has its own distinct scent (the smells are unrelated to the botanic ingredient). Essentially, these are shower gels infused with the goodness of goat milk and botanical essences but I do think the word “cream” has a better ring to it, the goats would be pleased. Just how great are these? They’re pretty much the most luxurious mid-range liquid body soaps I have ever tried. Had these existed while I was in grade school I would have collected the bottles for my dolls and pretended the milk man delivered to their doorstep daily (an “upcycle” tip for you mommies).

That certainly looks like “dessert for the skin” doesn’t it? What I love about these bath creams is they don’t aggressively lather up, they gently lather up in a silky way and my skin doesn’t feel stripped of moisture after. Plus the scent, oh my the well-rounded sophisticated scents, they have some that are a little bit more on the sweet slightly fruity or slightly floral side but I’ll have you know they also have clean non-gourmande soapy scents. The most unisex scent I smelt was their Goat’s Milk and Witch Hazel (seriously smells just like Safeguard White) and the next best neutral scent would be the Seaweed one. My favorite scent is Avocado, it’s a clean scent with a slightly sweet note in there, Jojoba is pretty nice, too. These bath creams just really make showering something to look forward to.
