At the start of July I was sent the Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin Range. I was pretty excited as I didn’t even know that Burt’s Bees did a range for atypical skin. Burt’s Bees have a great ethos: a history of natural, ethical and high quality products. According to the website, the sensitive skin range has Cotton Extract, which helps “skin replenish its outer layer, shielding it from potential irritants”.
Because of my rosacea, I’m very wary of new products. I always start them on a Friday evening so that I can hide in the house for 2 days if I have a flare up or a reaction. When applying a new product I’m like a coiled spring, waiting for the burning or stinging to start.
So I was very happy to find that this range was not only gentle but was also a pleasure to use.
I have a confession, this post should have gone out before Christmas but it failed to upload and I didn’t notice as I took some time off from the internet due to the loss of a family member. So I apologise for the oddly festive detailing in this blog post… just ignore it. Or pretend that you’re being really organised and planning for next Christmas!
An Evening With Burt’s Bees
The lovely ladies from Burt’s Bees asked me to come along to their shop in Soho for an evening of champagne, mince pies and beauty products. That’s pretty much an ideal evening in my book!
Meg from Lips So Facto was there talking to us about her favourite pieces from the Burt’s Bees range. If you don’t already follow her blog you can take a look at her thoughts on the Burt’s Bees lip products range HERE.
The gift boxes are adorable, just look at how cute they are! These are perfect for presents for friends, family and those people you inevitably have to buy for who you don’t really know!
Their lip products are all moisturising and caring for lips (which is a godsend in this cold weather) but are also super pretty – tinted shiny glosses, balms, glossy soft balm pencils and pigmented smooth glosses.
I didn’t even realise that Burt’s Bees did a mother and baby range, but it is all very sweet. And it would be a relief to know that it’s all natural and safe for both.
I couldn’t resist these lip balms as I ADORE my coconut and pear one, so I got some a presents for my sisters and mum. The chocolate and blueberry one in particular went down very well!
Have you tried any Burt’s Bees products? What is your favourite?
An Introduction To Burt’s Bees
September marked 30 years since Burt’s Bees began selling their amazing products and I have somehow managed to live that whole time without trying any. I’m not really sure why as I love that all of their products are so natural. It all started with a lip balm and has now grown into a full range with gorgeous products.
