With spring in full bloom, it’s the perfect time to re-examine and refresh your beauty routine. Are your favorite products full of wholesome ingredients that benefit you and the environment? If the answer’s no, you have some work to do. With so many items packed with undesirable ingredients, it can be difficult to find quality care that naturally promotes beautiful skin and hair. Search for brands like Burt’s Bees, with gentle and simple ingredients — always free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and petrochemicals.
Burt’s Bees Beauty & Body Care Favorites
Fabulously Fresh Body Wash:
The peppermint in this body wash makes it perfect for early mornings when you need a little pick-me-up. This delicious smell makes me feel so alive and happy! I use this to wash my body and shave my legs, and it has worked well for both.
Extra Energizing Body Wash:
This body wash smells so good! It has a perfectly sweet and energizing scent, and it also works well for shaving. I will definitely order more.
Burt’s Bees Baby Wash:
I used this on my kids when they were babies, and I just love the smell. Even though my son is 10, I still buy it. It’s both a tear-free shampoo and a body wash, so I don’t have to worry about the kids mistakenly using the shampoo on their bodies and body wash on their hair.
Beeswax Lip Balm:
This is my all-time favorite chapstick! Be sure to pick up the four-pack (or two four-packs!) so you can keep them everywhere – in your purse, nightstand and even by the TV.
Cleansing Towelettes for Sensitive Skin:
I remove my makeup with a towelette before washing my face, and I prefer sensitive formulas to reduce the risk of burning my eyes. The second ingredient in these towelettes is aloe, so they’re sure to be soothing.
Blemish Stick & Acne Solutions:
When I’m stressed, I tend to turn to comfort foods and overload my system with dairy and sugar. Unsurprisingly, my face doesn’t respond well and tends to break out. I needed something to help reduce the appearance of blemishes and give me smooth, clear skin.
Lip Crayon in Napa Vineyard:
This is a creamy and moisturizing lip crayon, but I wish I had gotten more colors. This is a deep red, but I’d like to try a lighter, brighter color for spring and summer.
Brightening Eye Treatment:
I’m all about brightening products right now. As I get older, I’m more tired, and with a two-year-old running around, sleeping in is NOT an option. To look bright, fresh and awake, sometimes I need a boost from a good eye cream.
