Goat’s Milk Soft Serve + Beauty Products at Victory Garden

Tuesday, August 2, 2011 5comments No tags Permalink 0

I love everything rose, be it rose petal doughnuts, rose macarons, rose petal teas, and even rose petite fours. For a face spritzer in the summer (and winter) I use rose water, and iced teas on warm days are spiked and sweetened with a splash of rose syrup.

So imagine my happy surprise when I discovered a rose lotion bar at the recently opened Victory Garden, home of some excellent goat’s milk soft-serve where toppings included maple marshmallows and crumbled halvah.

The focus here is soft serve, but do note that the owner, Sophia Brittan, also stocks a variety of relevant products like tea (from Tay Tea!), goat’s milk inspired sweets (Happy Goat Caramels!) and beauty products including lip balm and this lotion bar made by a local farmer exclusively for Victory Garden.

The lotion bar comes in both lavender and rose, as indicated by the sticker on the twist-top container. I usually use cream-based lotions like Kiehl’s whipped soy milk and honey butter (heavenly!) but this will make a great alternative for when you travel, very portable and will never spill.

The rose fragrance runs on the stronger side – just the way I like it. Simple and straightforward ingredients, the bar slides on nicely with no greasy feel. As for the price – it was only $10, a pleasant surprise. Who knew I could find both goat’s milk soft-serve and a new body product in one place?

    Have you tried rose flavored hot chocolate? Mmmm…. I tried it for the first time in Germany… and it smelled… and tasted… just like roses!
