Meet Fresh Pickins!

Fresh Pickins is a farm that produces honey, flowers, and health and beauty products. I first came across them at the Portland Flower Show in March, and I’m thrilled to share these great beauty products with you today.

Beach Rose Face Oil 

” Organic rose is one of the most sought-after essential oils for good reason; it is known as the oil of love and has been used throughout history as an aphrodisiac. Rose Oil can elevate our senses and open our hearts while helping soothe our emotions. The oil’s gentle touch also enhances the absorption of it’s consciously paired ingredients. Another important ingredient used in this blend is Organic Prickly Pear Oil, which is revered for its anti-aging properties and its ability to hydrate the skin while adding elasticity.  The organic oils in this blend are fast absorbing and are specially formulated to brighten, hydrate and soften the skin.”

I haven’t been using facial oils much but I have really been enjoying this one. I have been using this when my skin is feeling particularly dry, or under makeup to give it a glowy finish. This oil leaves my skin feely soft and supple and with a healthy-looking glow.

Wild Chaga Lip Balm

“Wild Chaga infused oils blended with Maine beeswax and organic ingredients. Our unique infusion of oils provides a sweet, mildly coniferous taste that will help protect and moisturize your lips.”

 Rose Coco Lip Balm

“Organic rose is one of the most sought-after essential oils for good reason; it is known as the oil of love and has been used throughout history as an aphrodisiac. Rose Oil can elevate our senses and open our hearts while helping soothe our emotions. The oil’s gentle touch also enhances the absorption of it’s consciously paired ingredients. Coconut oil delicately compliments the rose aromas and provides deep moisturizing to your skin. We have also infused organically grown calendula from our farm into every tube to help soothe and soften dry and rough lips.”

I love both of these lip balms.  They are both light and moisturizing, they don’t feel at all greasy or oily on my lips, just smooth a creamy. Out of the two, I think the Wild Chaga is my favorite, I really like how unique it is, I’ve never seen a chaga lip balm before, have you?

Surf Spray Hair Elixir 

“Our Surf Spray Hair Elixir is designed to keep your locks looking and feeling luscious while living an adventurous lifestyle. Surf Spray Hair Elixir uses premium organic oils infused with wild harvested Maine seaweed to provide a party of unique vitamins and minerals for your hair to savor. This product was inspired by the scent of the fresh ocean and our need to condition our hair before and after surf sessions.”

I have really been enjoying using texture sprays lately so I was so excited to try this one out. This spray leaves my hair glossy and smooth while giving it that beachy texture. I can’t wait to use it all the time this summer.

Sweet Basil Salve Of The Earth 

“Salve of the Earth blends are formulated with lightweight, non-greasy organic oils that are readily absorbed by the skin.  They are smooth and soft to the touch, allowing for gentle application all over the body.  All blends are infused with organic calendula flowers, which are grown with love on our farm.  Calendula is renowned for its ability to help gently rejuvenate skin that has been exposed to the elements.  The charming herbaceous and earthy smell of basil has always enchanted us on the farm. “

While I’m not a hundred percent sure how this is meant to be used but I have been loving this salve. The lovely light herbal scent of the sweet basil is so crisp and soothing. I have been using this on my knuckles, heels, cuticles, and elbows,  and has worked beautifully all around.

I absolutely love all of these products, they really exceeded my expectations, and I can’t wait to continue using them all. My favorites are definitely the lip balms and Surf Spray, they are the ones I’ve been getting the most use out of.

Thank you so much to Fresh Pickins for sending these amazing products to me.

What would your favorite be?

Anna.
