As someone who has lived in Austin my entire life, I naturally get excited about makeup and skincare brands that are based here because the clean beauty world is growing and so much of it is practically in my backyard! Eventually I’ll do a post dedicated to Austin beauty brands because it continues to grow each year and I’m here for it.
Alissa Bayer initially launched milk + honey as a spa in 2006 but has since grown to include products outside of their signature massages, facials, nail and hair salon. The skincare products perfectly compliment the overall experience and I was so grateful when they gifted me these winter favorites! Keep reading for a sweet discount on your next order 😉
Lip Butter, Blend No.40 | $12 – Made with cardamom & vanilla it’s a delicate scent that instantly makes your lips so soft. I received a sample last year at SXSW Wellness Expo and fell in love with the buttery soft formula. So happy to have a full jar of this sweetness!
Body Polish, No.05 | $32 – A sugar and sea salt polish that gently exfoliates and smooths with the help of lemon and vanilla oils. The texture is great and left my skin feeling soft and silky! First I tried on my hands to get a good feel for it and immediately wanted to bathe in it because it felt so great afterwards. Especially helpful for elbows, feet and knees (or wherever you tend to get dry spells). They’re known for their relaxing spa experience which so happens to pair perfectly with the experience you get at home using this. No appointment needed!
Regular Strength Stick Deodorant, No.9 Lavender + Tea Tree | $20 – My latest obsession. Aluminum-free deodorant. After researching the longterm affects of aluminum in deodorant, I was terrified to keep using them and immediately made the switch so when I received this I was so excited to grow my collection. Lavender is my absolute favorite scent for anxiety. My review on DoTerra Essential Oils mentions just how helpful it is for staying calm and collected.
This NEW product is a combo of lavender + tea tree and sounded fabulous from the start, but after using it for a few days I must say that I’m super impressed. It’s an excellent deodorant if you are making the switch like me. It has 40% less baking soda than their original formula plus it’s paraben-free, cruelty-free and comfortable on the skin. Tea tree naturally tackles those odor-causing bacterias that no one wants to deal with while lavender keeps you zen throughout the day.
Big thanks to milk + honey for sending over these goodies! I can’t wait to incorporate them into my daily routine and you can too!
