3 Tips for Choosing an Effective Eye Cream

June 24, 2019

If Eye Cream isn’t a solid step in your skincare regimen yet, that’s okay. While it’s a good rule of thumb to preventatively incorporate anti-aging products before you need them, it’s never too late to start. 

It can be challenging to navigate the “must-haves” and essential ingredients when shopping for an effective eye cream. We’re proud of each ingredient in our hyperclean formulation, but these three pack the biggest punch in our Eye Cream.

Vitamin K

Research has found Vitamin K to be an extremely healing ingredient. You’re likely incorporating the anti-inflammatory vitamin into your diet via greens like kale or spinach. On a topical level, Vitamin K can help diminish the appearance of dark under-eye circles, making it an instant no-brainer to include in our Eye Cream.


I know it seems a little on-the-nose to literally apply caffeine to tired undereyes, but the antioxidant-rich ingredient is known to reduce the appearance of water retention and puffiness. 

Organic Baobab Seed Oil

This multi-tasking ingredient is filled with Vitamin A, E, and omega fatty acids. In other words, it helps to hydrate skin and fight against external signs of aging.

Shop milk + honey Eye Cream.

5 gifts mom + mentors actually want this Mother’s Day

May 7, 2019

Did you know Mother’s Day is less than a week away? (Don’t freak out!) We’ve compiled wishlists from moms and mentors at milk + honey HQ to guide you in the right direction. Sit back, relax, and scroll on – we’ve done the shopping for you.

milk + honey Home Fragrance No. 08

This is milk + honey spa in a bottle. I feel like I can breathe easier and unwind a little bit more once I’ve spritzed this around the house. I think of it as a simple way to spark joy. My favorite way to use? Open the windows on a sunny day, spray the pillows and sheets, and let the fresh air mix with the lavender/eucalyptus blend for a refreshing ambiance. – Marisa T., mom of a 19-month-old daughter

Luxe Face Oil

An oil that truly lives up to its name. One of my favorite milk + honey skincare items, it is an essential part of my nighttime routine. – Juni H., cat mom

milk + honey Bath Bombs

Opening a large bag of bath bombs on Mother’s Day would make my day! First of all, they smell amazing– such an easy way to bring the spa home with you. Second of all, they are a great way to bribe your kids to take a bath. Two kids in the bathtub = a quiet glass of wine for mom. – Michelle B., mom of two boys

Muscle Bath Soak + Bath and Body Oil No 18

Let’s keep the relaxation going, people. This is my favorite combination of milk + honey products and a great way to bring home the spa experience. – Juni H., cat mom

milk + honey Home Fragrance No. 46

I love my dogs but I definitely don’t want their smell to be the first thing that my guests notice. I layer this fragrance in all areas of my life – in my home, on my sheets, in the bathroom and even in my spin shoes post-workout. The warm, earthy notes revive any stale space. Hands down, my most favorite product on the milk + honey shelves. – Summer S., dog mom

The best part? All orders of $50 or more will receive a complimentary deluxe mini Luxe Face Oil.

Shop all milk + honey favorites.


our intention for skincare

February 27, 2019

I’m beyond excited to introduce you to our new skincare line — not only because we’ve been working tirelessly to develop products that are hyperclean and effective but also because I know you (and your skin) will love it as much as I do. We have even more skincare products on the way, but there’s no better place to start than with our first two hydrating heroes: the Intense Hydration Cream and Luxe Face Oil.

I want to share a little bit more on why it’s taken us so long to launch our skincare line. Full disclosure: getting to a point where we were ready to debut these products was exceptionally challenging. It has been a long process of trial and error of trying to refine our formulas so they have an appropriate shelf life and will be just as effective and delightful to use in six to 12 months as they are the day you open the bottle. It also took quite a bit of time and patience to find non-toxic, non-irritating preservatives that keep our products safe and stable. At every point, I wanted to make sure we checked all of our “boxes” while never compromising on a luxurious experience. You should never feel like using a clean, safe alternative to conventional beauty products is less effective or enjoyable.

Most importantly, I’m lucky to work alongside our talented team of estheticians at milk + honey, who have provided us with crucial feedback and expertise throughout the development process. Their hands-on knowledge and daily connection to both the spa and our clients differentiate us from just another product line.

Stay tuned for more skincare product launches in the coming weeks!

#ArtOfTheBath: rise + shine

January 14, 2019

Some mornings are harder than others to get out of bed. Perhaps you stayed up too late exploring all of the Bandersnatch endings or maybe you’re simply not a morning person. Either way, I relate. As a self-proclaimed nightowl, I’ve found that setting routines for the AM can change my perspective in the morning. Waking up early for a yoga or Soulcycle class can be motivating, so I figured why not give the #ArtOfTheBath a shot? So after much research, I present to you #AOTB: rise + shine edition.

#ArtOfTheBath: new year refresh

January 7, 2019

While the new year offers optimism and opportunity, it can also present a lot of pressure. If your Instagram feed is anything like mine, you’re being bombarded with crisp, new activewear, renewed Soulcycle memberships, and lofty expectations for the year ahead. And though I’m all about resolutions, I think everyone could add “being gentle toward myself” to their 2019 list. It’s great to stick to your guns and book that class knowing you’ll have to pay $20 to cancel, but your off-days are just as important for your headspace. That said, I’ve created a refreshing #ArtOfTheBath for your off-days this year. Or even your on-days. If you ask me, weekly bathtime is A-OK as far as resolutions go.
