Milk baths have been part of beauty regimens for thousands of years (see: Cleopatra). But quite frankly, as lovely as it may sound to sit in a tub filled with milky water while relaxing and receiving its beauty benefits, few of us have the time to indulge in such a bath nowadays. The next best thing? Fresh's new Milk Body Collection, which includes a cleanser, a body lotion, and a hand cream.

It's a simple yet effective three-step routine that feels like you spent longer than a quick five-minute shower. Each product is made with three plant-based kinds of milk (centella, linseed, and rice) that create a luxurious blend made for a little daily spa moment. Keep reading to learn more about this new creamy trio.

The Routine Breakdown

Milk Body Cleanser

Begin with the Milk Body Cleanser ($32). This is a nonstripping body wash that transforms into a creamy lather and gently removes impurities and maintains skin's pH, leaving it soft and cleansed. What's special about this cleanser is that it contains ingredients typically used (and loved) in facial products, such as hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin E. To create the luxurious mixture, Fresh uses a specific process to blend the plants with extravirgin olive oil, thus creating three unique milk-like emulsions.

Milk Body Lotion

Once you've indulged in a "milk shower," follow up with the Milk Body Lotion ($42). This hydrating product is a nourishing blend of squalane, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and vitamin E that gives deep hydration and strengthens the skin's barrier. It has a lightweight texture that soothes and is 100 percent "pajama proof," meaning it absorbs quickly and doesn't cling to clothes (how great is that?). One application and the body is left feeling velvety soft for the next 24 hours.

Milk Hand Cream

Our hands need all the extra nourishment they can get, and the Milk Hand Cream ($20) is made to soothe and protect dry hands and cuticles with every application — even after handwashing. Like the rest of the collection, it is made with centella, linseed, and rice milks, which soothe, comfort, and support the skin's barrier. You will also find niacinamide and vitamin E among the ingredients, but unlike the cleanser and lotion, it contains biotin — an ingredient responsible for supporting skin-barrier function. It's the perfect companion to your nightstand or for carrying in your everyday bag.
