Burt's bees is one of those brands I have always meant to buy, hearing so many good things about their products, but never actually got around to it. A poor excuse I know. But santa fixed that for me this year, with a cute little gift tin of their best known products.
The brand has a great story behind it and at the heart of it is a simple philosophy; "what you put on your body should be made from the best nature has to offer." They are a company that not only cares about profit but also people and the planet. A pretty nice philosophy if you ask me.
The lip balm has been in my pocket ever since it came out of the tin on christmas day. It is 100% natural and aside from beeswax has a whole host of ingredients including peppermint oil, vitamin e and coconut and sunflower oil. It feels really nourishing and refreshing all in one swipe.
The hand salve has been some what of a saviour the past few weeks with the cold weather leaving my hands dry and oh, dry! I slather it on right before bed and it has a great aroma that I am convinced sends me off to sleep better than before. Packed with beeswax, olive oil, rosemary and lavender it is super hydrating.
My favourite product though turned out to be the lemon butter cuticle creme; with lemon, beeswax, rosemary and sweet almond oil it has totally revived my dry and cracked cuticles. Plus it has a similar fresh and herby aroma as the hand salve which I really love.
If you haven't tried Burt's Bees products yet, I highly recommend you do; they have great scents, which is really important for me and they really care for your skin. On my "to try next list" is the naturally nourishing honey and milk body lotion and the orange essence facial cleanser.
