{The Powder Room} Archipelago Botanicals Oat lotion milk


Hello dolls!! I hope the week has started off lovely for you!?! I thought it was about time I got some product reviews on the blog for you, my product drawer is over-flowing really with goodies that I've been using, so now that the light in my house is better, I'm going to bring you more of them. Today, I wanted to share this body lotion that I received from my dear friend Kim of A Very Sweet Blog, this Oat Milk lotion by Archipelago Botanicals (size 18fl. oz/532ml for $25) I used it all winter long. As you can see it's a big bottle and I was surprised to see it in my box when it arrived from Kim. 



I tried just a bit of it to test and soon found myself using it more than the bottle of lotion I was trying to finish. It has a very clean scent, nothing too strong or too light either, (not like oats despite the name) like being outside near the water, yet near a garden, both tantalisingly mixed to create a wonderful clean sweet musky scent. Its thick enough not to run all over your hands, but not so thick that it gives you troubles when applying it, just sinks into the skin wonderfully. 
I first started applying this at night time, it's free from parabens & packed with nourishing dried milk solids and gentle oat proteins, there is also jojoba esters for a smooth, non-greasy application. It's very gentle as it hydrates and soothes.  My skin felt great in the morning, very soft as if I had just applied it and also the scent still lingered which made me feel relaxed to wake up too. I had never even heard of this company before trying this product, but I would definitely try more from their range, the only sadness is that Archipelago Botanicals don't ship overseas at this time, but I did find some things on Ebay if you're willing to pay import duties & buy from an American seller OR like me, have a dear sweet marvellous fantastic friend who sends you beauty treats from America like Kim does, haha!! I've been using this for over a month now and I'm not even half way through the bottle, brilliant really, I'm a fan of this now! If you're able to try it - please do, they ship in the US and Canada :) 

I gave Archipelago Botanicals Oat Lotion Milk a Sizzling Heart  as I loved the lotion & my skin was left really soft, if they had stores or shipped here, I would try other products.

(Rating scale: Sizzling Heart - Go & buy it, Hot Hot Heart - It's good, but not perfect, Lukewarm Heart - there were issues, I might buy it again, Frozen Heart - Do not buy, it was terrible)


Happy Wednesday sweethearts,
xoxoxoxox

P.S. I know this product is only able to be bought in America, but since a high majority of my readers are in America, I decided to do the review any ways...but don't worry for those of us who aren't in America, I have plenty more products for review that can be bought no matter where you live *wink*

  2. It looks fab! I love a lotion that is light, but still effective. Some lotions definitely have funny scents so it's nice to use one with a nice, clean scent. I always load up my suitcases with goodies from the US when I'm back! There are so many things that are already on my list and I will also send some to Kim as well!

  8. Dear Kizzy, this lotion sounds great, it's bad that it can be bought only in US. Anyways I love light textured lotions in summer, my skin becomes a bit oily especially on Tzone area and it needs a light weight moisturiser. Nice review honey! Wish you a lovely day. Kisses and hugs <3

  13. Looks fab and it's great to hear about the consistency. Most products are either too thick or too runny!

    1. Yes, when there is no good consistency, the product gets wasted I think. x

  15. That Archipelago Botanicals Oat Lotion Milk looks like it must feel wonderful.
    I'm afraid I haven't taken very good care of myself and have rarely used skincare products though my skin would thank me if I did.
    Since I live across the pond in the U.S. I really should try this product.
    P.S.: Thank you for leaving that sweet comment on my blog. I'm following yours now :)

  16. Sounds like a great product and I can see why you love it! I have never heard of this brand before either as I guess they are not in Canada either. So sweet that your friend would send you this wonderful treat! I would love to try it too! Maybe I will find it when I take a trip into the USA.

  32. For some reason, when it says something about "milk" on a beauty product, I'm really drawn to it. I guess I get some sort of "this is soft and natural" feeling or something. Haha! And I DO like drinking milk (lactose free...). Cleopatra used to take baths in it you know... :) xoxoxoxoxo

  35. Kim is so so sweet! Such great friendship you both share. And I love that this is jojoba in it. I sometimes add a little jojoba oil to my body lotions if it doesn't have already. I love that stuff!
