Farmhouse Fresh Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil | Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

I could wax poetic about all of the lovely Farmhouse Fresh skin and body care products that I have tried over the years, but sometimes even they outdo themselves, and such is the case with their brand new Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil. In fact, this utterly delectable body oil, with its rich, deep and creamy vanilla and bourbon aroma, is mouthwatering!

This wonderfully nourishing body oil contains high quality Madagascar Vanilla and rich Bourbon, and its scent is otherworldly and scrumptious. In fact, Farmhouse Fresh CEO, Shannon McLinden, asserts, “Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil looks and sounds like a magical dessert, but it’s a nourishing year-round moisturizer that instantly hydrates and softens hands, feet, arms, legs and other dry or rough spots with a silky-soft feel...We were thrilled to add local Bone Bourbon® to the formula because it’s an aged bourbon that gives this oil a beautiful, rich undertone.”

If you have ever tried other Farmhouse Fresh Body Oils, you are well aware that they are lightweight, fast-absorbing, ultra-nourishing and hydrating. This is precisely what you get with Farmhouse Fresh Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil, but there is something about this particular aroma during the cold winter months that is nothing short of perfection. I imagine a warm and toasty house, laughing with the people that I love, having great food and drinks, and somehow this scent embodies all of that warmth and comfort for me.

If you love warm and creamy vanilla aromas, then you really need to try this gem of a body oil. Furthermore, the price is incredible given that you receive a gorgeous 4.5 oz glass bottle for less than $20.00. It is a perfect gift for yourself, or for anyone on your gift list who loves nourishing body oils.

I like to apply this body oil to damp freshly cleansed skin, and it sinks in immediately without leaving behind any residue. Skin is left soft, smooth, supple and very moisturized. However, I have to tell you that I have also been applying it to dry hands, and I marvel about the extent to which it heals them during this cold weather. I do note that the aroma tends to fade after about 15-20 minutes, though some of the warmth and creaminess does persist a little longer.
According to Farmhouse Fresh,

Exotic in scent, color and texture, the new Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil by FarmHouse Fresh® is a subtle blend of light, botanical oils that lightly fragrance skin with Madagascar vanilla and small batch, Texas-distilled bourbon.

The soft scent of your delicious dreams! Instantly soothe your skin into splendor with this delectable Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil and its full spectrum of skin-repairing omega-3, 6 & 9 fatty acids. The soft, warm notes of Madagascar vanilla and freshly distilled small batch Texas bourbon are a luxurious and delicious treat.

Apply directly to skin as a light but deeply hydrating body oil. Vanilla Bourbon Oil includes U.S.-grown non-GMO soy which is known for its highly repairing properties for dry skin and a blend of other oils that impart wonderful benefits to skin including Grapeseed and Olive Fruit, which contain powerful antioxidants which diminish the look of the damaging effects of sun and improve skin's texture.

Overall Assessment: Seriously, if you have a penchant for warm, complex and creamy vanilla aromas, then this body oil is REALLY worth having. I am using my bottle up far too quickly because I am obsessed with the scent, and despite the fact that I have more body oils than any sensible human needs, I definitely plan to replace this bottle as soon as I finish it.
