Burt’s Bees is a product that nearly every household should already be aware of. Their products are 100% all natural, not tested on animals, and they even use 100% recycled materials for packing their products. On top of taking care of our environmental world, they are also socially responsible and are taking care of our economic world as well, by giving back 10% of their sales to such programs like Habitat to Humanity. With a CV like Burt’s Bees it’s no wonder they win numerous awards each year, and are popping up everywhere on local store shelves.
For review, I received a number of products from Burt’s Bees. Including a lip balm, which comes in a little tin, and is made with coconut & sweet almond oils, peppermint and rosemary. The lip balm is pure and simple, it smells like peppermint and leaves a cool tingle on my lips after each use. I also received a lip shimmer, which is “The World’s Best Lip Blam, with a Hint of Luminescent Colour”. I would say that it leaves more than just a hint of colour, it’s not quite as thick and bright as a lip stick, but there is no doubt that it gives my lips a nice tint. I’ve actually purchased this lip shimmer in the past. There are plenty of colours to choose from as well.
My favourite products that I was sent for review from Burt’s Bees is the shampoo & conditioner. I received the volumlizing pomegranate and soy shampoo. I’m not sure how the people at Burt’s Bees knew that my hair is a limp as a cooked piece of spaghetti and very thin, so I was more than pleased and excited to test out the product. The shampoo has a different feel to it than commercial shampoos -it’s not as jelly, it’s a little more watery. Another difference is that it is not as sudsy as other shampoos I have used. I think companies have led us to believe that bubbles = cleaning, but you should know, it is not the case at all. The conditioner I received is called More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut Conditioner, and it took me only a tiny squirt to condition my whole head. Now, onto the really good stuff – I really feel like this fluffed up my hair, any fluff is an improvement and the conditioner left my hair silky smooth.
I also received the Naturally Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum for review. Now, just pushing 30, I don’t have any wrinkles yet to test this out on, but my Mom tried it, and so far, she really likes the cream, and is hoping that she will see a positive change in her few wrinkles that she has (Please God, I ask that I am blessed with my Mother’s beautiful skin). It seems to have made a difference in the one wrinkle she hates the most beneath her lip on her chin. I can not really see the difference, but if it makes her happy, that is all that matters to me. With ingredients such as pomegranate, which in a previous post I mentioned all the positive benefits, so it would make sense that if drinking pomegranate is beneficial, then putting it on your face should be too.
We are all Burt’s Bees fans in my house, their all natural products are not limited on quality. Many times people think all natural and eco-friendly mean granola and birkenstocks, but Burt’s Bees products are proof that all natural products can work for anyone.
