Burt’s Bees are one of my favourite brands, I just love their lip balms! The business started by selling produce made from the beeswax of ‘Burt’s bees’. They initially just sold lip balms and hand creams, which soon became very popular! I really like their ethos and brand mentality. On their website they explain that they are,
‘Creating truly natural products that are good for you and the environment.’
I must admit prior to this moisturizing lotion I hadn’t used any of their skincare products. However, this has fast changed since I started using this cream.
The ingredients are completely natural, and include willow bark extract which, ‘penetrate’s pores to reduce blemishes and prevent further breakouts’. It also contains lemongrass, witch hazel, golden seal and hops which also help in reducing the redness caused by ‘break-outs’.
It says to use the product morning and night, after cleansing the skin. I have been following the instructions, and have most certainly seen a difference. I did however, get a spot just underneath the chin, so I applied the lotion a little more often, and it soon cleared up.
The lotion comes out of a pump-action, glass bottle, and you only needs a maximum of two pumps, to cover the whole face. It can be used sparingly, and still do a good job. It has a clean, anti bacterial smell and really smoothes and tightens the skin, in an instant. I definitely will be continuing to use it, as a regular part of my skincare regime.
Burts Bee’s are on the brand list of Cruelty Free International, so one can buy in confidence, knowing no animal cruelty has been involved in the making of this product.
For the price, I would consider the 55g of dermatologically tested lotion a very good buy! Burts Bees really do care about their customers and want to give them their best products, at good value prices. On their website they write,
“Your well-being is affected every single day by the personal care products you use. Our goal is to create and educate people on truly natural products that have a positive effect on both you and the world you live in for the good of your well-being, for the good of the environment and for The Greater Good. Simply put, we strive to make people’s lives better every day — naturally.”
