Burt's Bees The Classics Collection

This post is sponsored by Burt’s Bees

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. Continue Reading

Lush None Of Your Beeswax Lip Balm Tin

Don’t let the name fool you, this lip balm is totally your beeswax. However, it is a little odd that there is actually no beeswax in this product … and that is a good thing. This lip balm contains only hydrating and protecting ingredients sourced from some of the world’s most nourishing plants. The rich mixture of butters had me concerned that this product would be too oily for everyday use, and despite it being vegan I was still hesitant to try it.

The rave reviews of this tiny tin has made None Of Your Beeswax lip balm a hero product for Lush, but would I like it? My review tells all. Continue Reading
