FarmHouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk: A Mother-Daughter Conversation
Here's a conversation Annalena, age 14, and I just had about FarmHouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk .
Gina: What do you think this stuff smells like?
Annalena: It smells like peaches and cream.
Gina: The box says: "Our cows eat cookies." Does it smell like cookies?
Annalena: Not really. I think they just mean that it's sweet smelling. Like, it's really, really sweet.
Gina: Yes, I agree. It's too sweet for me. What about you?
Annalena: I like it a lot.
Gina: Do you think it's best for teens?
Annalena: No, it's not a youthful scent, but it smells yummy.
Gina: It says it has almond oil in it. Does it smell like almonds?
Annalena: Not really. There's a slight hint of it, but the tangy, milky scent over powers the almond.
Gina: What does it feel like?
Annalena: It's kind of a watery lotion. Not too oily. It's really nice. It makes your skin freakishly soft.
Gina: What do you think of the package?
Annalena: I like that it comes in a little pitcher. It's very elegant.
Gina: Does it look like vinaigrette?
Annalena: I don't know. Vinaigrette comes in lots of different packages.
Gina: Anything else?
Annalena: It's more cream than peach.
Gina: The copy on the box recommends using it with your favorite perfume.
Annalena: It's pretty strong. The scent is mild, but it lasts for a while. I don't know about mixing it with perfume.
Gina: It costs $26. Do you think it's worth it?
Annalena: Well, to me $26 is a lot to spend on any kind of beauty product, but it's a nice lotion. I don't think it's ridiculous except that spending that much on any beauty product is ridiculous. You're paying for the package, which is really pretty.
