burtsbeedayBurt’s Bees is turning 30, and they’re celebrating the bees that started it all. On 9/17/14 (actual) Burt will read #burtsbeeday messages to (actual) bees in a live-webcast. I think, this is a pretty neat idea and reason enough to put together why I love this famous beauty brand.

burtBy harnessing the outstanding power of bees and nature, Burt’s Bees have created a range of natural skincare products that work in harmony with your body to give you powerful, proven results.  Burt’s Bees able you to explore the joys of beauty the natural way.  They will never compromise what is best for your experience and well-being, and will always be true to what they define as natural.  “To us, the word ‘natural’ means only one thing. It means, ‘harvested from nature.’ And we adhere to that definition like the strictest of school teachers.”

Burt’s Bees products average at 99% natural with half of the range being 100% natural.  They are continually striving for all products to be 100% natural by investigating all ingredients and using the latest technology to create the best products for your greatest well-being and never using any ingredient that has any potential suspected human health risks.

All Burt’s Bees products are carefully crafted using ingredients that are the best nature has to offer; Beeswax, botanical and essentials oils, herbs, flowers and minerals. These safe, effective ingredients have withstood the test of time. Every product is labelled with a ‘natural bar’ to that you can clearly identify the high level of natural ingredients used and all packages are designed to hold just enough product for you to use up before it expires, so you don’t end up throwing out half used tubes and jars.

Burt’s Bees efforts to bring the best natural skin and hair care while protecting the environment to their customers has been highly recognised with many awards to their name. For those seeking a line of skin-care products with truly natural ingredients, this is one of the few that steadfastly adheres to its commitment: there is no hypocrisy here. If the ingredient lists are accurate, and there is no reason to assume otherwise, then you will not find preservatives or synthetically derived ingredients of any kind.

My three favorite products:


Beeswax Lip Balm Tin

This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. They’ve even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle. Take your pick of an old-fashioned yellow tin or a recycled plastic tube.


Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub

Humming with the warm scent of Honey and Shea, Ground Almonds and Aloe Leaf Juice combine to gently scrub skin smooth. Leaving your skin irresistibly smooth and oh-so soft. It’s the simple way to brighten both your skin and day.


Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme

Burt’s Bees’ Lemon Butter Cuticle Créme gives your needy nails a helping hand. Nourish and moisturise nails and cuticles with this intensive, natural treatment. A touch of lemon oil makes your nails smell incredibly clean, healthy and beautiful, naturally.

So, I say: Happy Birthday, Burt’s Bees – stay as beautiful, personal and natural as you are! <3
