Let me start by stating the obvious—it’s not every day that we run into donkey milk as an active ingredient in our moisturizers, or any other beauty product for that matter.
However, this might be a bit of a mistake on our beloved brands’ behalf because this stuff? Nothing short of a skincare miracle.
And that’s not even an exaggeration.
The use of milk for self-care actually goes all the way back to ancient Egypt when royals insisted on bathing in it as a way to combat wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
In fact, Cleopatra apparently swore by the milk bath!
Donkey Milk & Argan Oil Moisturizer: The Benefits
So let’s get one thing out the way first: the formula might not be vegan, but the milk isn’t exactly being cruelly and unlawfully derived from a locally sourced donkey, so keep calm—it’s absolutely cruelty-free and ethical to use.
Aside from that, donkey milk extract is packed with tons of vitamins and nutrients. Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, D, and E make sure the formula packs a powerful punch in the fight against inflammation, environmental damage, and premature-aging.
Not to mention that it’s also blended with argan oil which also helps reduce symptoms for a number of different inflammatory skin conditions and does a damn good job of softening and moisturizing those dry, rough areas.
For the advanced skincare enthusiasts out there, there are also a few key ingredients you might love and be familiar with.
There’s Ceramide Complex to restore the protective barrier, and Hyaluronic Acid 4d that “accurately targets different layers of the skin, lock in moisture from the outside, and hold onto that moisture, to improve elasticity.”
The Rundown — Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How
We all try new products with hopes that it’ll work for us. We probably spend more money on body care and cosmetics than almost anything else, so it’s important to know what we’re getting into before we actually get into it.
Here’s the rundown on IxoraBB’s Donkey Milk & Argan Oil Moisturizer before you make the commitment to test it out:
How much is it? It comes with a $40 price tag for the standard 4 oz. They also offer a sample size for just $10 if you’d like to test it out first.
Who is it made for? You, duh. No, seriously, this product works for all skin types. It works best for dry skin, but is also appropriate for oily and inflammation-prone skin with conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
What can I use it for? Moisturizing dry, chapped skin or soothing rashes, acne, and the like are the recommended uses. Despite effectively protecting the skin barrier, this is not a substitute for sunscreen.
Where do I use it? This moisturizer is specifically for your face. However, the formula is safe enough to use on other parts of the body if you choose to do so.
When do I use it? This donkey milk moisturizer is appropriate for both your morning and night time routines, and should be used right after you wash your face.
Is it a part of a collection? Yes! IxoraBB offers a full blown collection of donkey milk products. In fact, you can grab a bundle that includes body wash, cleanser, lotion, bath tea, and bar soap.
It’ll clear up any rashes and breakouts you may have; soften and moisturize dry, rough skin; and even smooth out wrinkles.
