Paintbox Soapworks Goat Milk Hand & Body Cream review
It is a lighter texture than HoG pumpkin butter, and looks and feels like lightly whipped cream or greek yoghurt. It sinks in to my skin quickly and I can dress immediately, but it still leaves a well-conditioned look.
The level of scent is more subtle than the HoGs, although it still lingers nicely on the skin. I love Dead Leaves On The Dirty Ground in the sorbetto scrub and it works well in the goat milk cream; it's a clean, smoky, earthy fragrance that works well (and doesn't fight) with the dark fragrances I favour.
Paintbox Soapworks has also just released their winter Yule Collection, and I received a sampler soap in the Snoggin' scent with my order. I don't usually care for foody scents but the orange zest in this stops it being too sweet for me and I'm tempted to order it in the sorbetto. There are some other very interesting scents in the winter collection: I've ordered Yuletide Mariner sorbetto and The Victorious Sun goat milk cream. A list of all of the scents is below - they all come in the soaps and sorbettos but I've only spotted The Victorious Sun in the goat milk cream.
The Yuletide Mariner - Spruce, Balsam, Salt Water, Cold Rain.
Snoggin' - Egg Nog, Extra Brandy, Nutmeg, Blood Orange.
Poinsetta - Fizzy Champagne, Cranberry.
Comfort and Joy - Gingerbread, Mulled Wine, Cider, Saffron.
White Snow, Bright Snow - Peppermint, Fresh Snow, Pale Vanilla.
The Victorious Sun - Lemon Verbena, Frankincense, Black Pepper.
