Vitacost Haul: Burt’s Bees

by | Updated: December 4th, 2016 | Read time: 2 minutes

Curious if roots, stems, barks and blossoms are actually effective solutions to your skincare woes? Burt’s Bees is founded on the notion that these are exactly the raw ingredients our bodies need. Of course, I trust the brand I’ve used since childhood (who hasn’t tried their yellow-packaged lip balm?). But I decided to test-drive a few of their other (some newer) formulas to see for myself. And the results are…

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin & Body Care

Naturally Nourishing Milk& Honey Body Lotion
I’ve been reaching for this moisturizer as soon as I step out of the shower.

Tinted Lip Palm in Petunia
This color is my favorite – like a light wash of pink – and it lasts a while on your lips.

Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom
I love that the first ingredient is coconut oil.

Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter
The fruity smell is refreshing and truly nourishing on my lips.

Radiance Day Lotion SPF 7 Sunscreen with Royal Jelly
If you’re sensitive to strong fragrances, this may not be the best for you. The moisture was nice, but was a bit too aromatic for my skin (and nose).

Aloe & Linden Flower After Sun Soother
A must-have for my California, sun-kissed skin! I’m stocking up for the summer.

Super Shiny Shampoo with Mango
Gives a good lather in the shower without weighing down hair – or exposing you to sulfates or parabens.

Avocado Butter Pre-Shampoo Hair Treatment with Nettles and Rosemary
The consistency is really thick, so a little bit goes a long way. Using too much may make your strands appear greasy.

Rosewater Toner
Feels a bit more powerful than the Andalou Naturals toner – probably due to the witch hazel. I like it!

Brightening Eye Treatment with Daisy Extract
The light-weight formula is ideal for sensitive eyes, but doesn’t fall short on effectiveness. Highly recommend!
