Choosing beauty products that work for you are an important part of taking care of yourself, but it isn’t the only aspect you should consider. Up until my mid-twenties the only thing I cared about was using products that showed results with immediate use. I didn’t care about the brand, the morals or policies they had in place, how it effected the environment or people. As I’ve matured I’ve learnt that being wise about your purchases means you don’t have to compromise on what’s important to you. You can have great products, that work, and that align with your own values.
Natural ingredients are becoming increasingly important to me but it’s something that Burt’s Bees mastered almost 30 years ago. The globally-renowned brand uses nature to create skincare that works, processing them in the simplest way to deliver maximum results. You can actually spell and pronounce their ingredients, a rarity in most beauty products today.
The certified cruelty-free brand offers products that have lasted the test of time. There are 6 perfect, shining examples of the quality you find in Burt’s Bees. PLUS, you can enter their competition to win one of their award winning classic products. First, get to know them all but be warned, once you try them I assure you it will be the start of a budding romance with Burt and his bees.
With nearly 30 years under their belt, these products not only work hard but they make you feel good too. The sensorial experience from ingredients like lemon, pomegranate and honey will make you melt.
The original Burt’s Bees product that started it all. The 100% natural balm is chock full of coconut and sunflower oils, with beeswax for sealing in hydration and a dash of peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle. It’s available in the adorably old-fashioned metal tin or in a recycled plastic tube.
Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
It’s a secret weapon for many manicurists and nail bloggers. This cuticle cream nourishes brittle nails, softens cuticles and leaves your digits smelling lemony fresh.
The most intensive hand saviour in the Burt’s Bees range, the salve has a unique mix of beeswax, herbs and botanical oils to repair hard-working hands. Every green thumb and backyard farmer needs a tin of Hand Salve.
Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream
A buttery treat for your hands is the ultimate daily indulgence. The well known benefits of shea are amplified with essential botanical oils like macadamia nut, rosehip and neroli. It’s an antioxidant and fatty acid drink for your hands.
Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream
The delicious mix of sweet almond oil and vitamin E make this hand cream rather addictive. The gorgeous glass jar takes pride of place on my desk as I use it throughout the day to keep my hands youthful.
Coconut Foot Cream
Revive tired, sore feet in a flash with this creamy saviour. Coconut oil, lanolin and vegetable glycerin rejuvenate the most neglected, winter feet while a pinch of rosemary and peppermint oils leave them feeling refreshed.
