Tried and True and Going Strong
Caswell Massey has created unique products cherished by George Washington, Dolly
Madison, George Gershwin, Judy Garland and John F. Kennedy.
An old favorite of mine is their lovely Goat’s Milk and Honey
Soap ($15 for three 3oz bars). By combining the benefits of
two tried and true healing agents—honey and goat milk—this
delicately scented soap provides gentle cleansing, leaving the
skin soft and moisturized.
Designed for use on the face and body, the soaps are perfect for even the most sensitive skin, and are also reported to be
effective on acne and blemished complexions. Three individually wrapped soaps come in each attractive, artful Caswell Massey box.
Milk & Honey
Burt’s Bees has always offered no-nonsense, homegrown, effective skin
care. My sister swears by Burt’s Bees Milk and Honey Body
Lotion ($9 for 8oz) for herself and her two year-old
The lotion is gentle enough for sensitive skin and
babies; it contains no additives, fillers or preservatives,
but is loaded with skin-loving ingredients such as sunflower
oil, honey, vitamin E, milk powder, and aloe vera.
As if all this were not enough, it has a rich milky honey aroma.
This moisturizing, lightweight lotion absorbs easily and can
also be used on the face.
An interesting side note is that Burt’s Bees gives back to
nature with their conservation projects for U.S. wooded areas.
