Farmaesthetics Midnight Honey Bath & Body Oil

It’s true sometimes what they say about familiarity. Even the most rarely wildcrafted lavender can lose its appeal over time. More so in body oils as it seems to be the staple ingredient for soothing the soul. But, Farmaesthetics is here to break the stereotype that an oil can, in fact, have only three ingredients and still be a primer for minimalist skin care. The Midnight Honey Bath & Body Oil ($36) is solely created from certified organic Sweet Soy oil, Honey Absolute & Vitamin E, ingredients which hail from technologically oriented, sustainable, organic farms in the good ole US of A.

Soy oil is naturally full of fatty acids, though it’s a rarely seen oil used in huile treatments. With the added antioxidant action from Vitamin E, Soy Oil restores the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by replacing lost moisture and helping the skin retain moisture. It’s not a question of expense or daring blending here. But, the scent is exciting. Fret not, as you don’t get that syrupy sweet feel here. The honey is muted and restrained, but tumbles onto skin nicely. With its lightweight viscosity, you won’t have to worry about the scent lasting, though the luscious notes of Honey are rustic and charming. The oil gains a new dimension as it spreads simply because the Honey warms up to skin and leaving a dewy sugariness atop. It’s immaculate and deliberate with a decadent, companionable feel.

The oil is intriguing on all fronts, proving how the simplest of ingredients and intent really can dazzle your nervy senses.
