Burt's Bees started out in 1984 selling bees wax candles and eventually moved into home-made beeswax lip balms and hand salves at local craft fairs. Although half of their 150+ products are 100% natural they do include a "natural bar" on all their products to help you clearly identify the high level of natural ingredients used in the products.
I was sent the Radiance Night Creme, Radiance Body Lotion, Replenishing Lip Balm with pomegranate oil and the Lip Shimmer in the shade Papaya.
The Radiance night creme has almost a pearl sheen to it and has a fairly runny texture. I have been using it at night and like it. I find it doesn't give me as much moisture as some of the other night creams Ive tried but it does the job. There is a faint scent which I'm not a fan of but I cant put my finger on what exactly it is. I like the texture and pearlized look of the product however I'm not sure I would purchase this item as it didn't do the best job at keeping my face hydrated through the night.
This item would be great if you like light weight moisturizers and at a price of $24.99 cdn it is slightly above drugstore brand creams but may be justifiable for the simple fact that they do not test on animals, is paraben & phthalate free and is 99.02% natural!
The Radiance body lotion has been a hit with me. I like the extremely light-weight texture, size of the product and effectiveness. I found the snap top lid doesn't really open with ease which is a bit annoying as I need two hands to pry it open. The texture is a bit more runny than I'm used to with body lotions but its ok because this just means a little will go a long long way! At a cost of $14.99 I can see this item lasting a while and working really well for anyone at any age although some may need help opening it I would still recommend this product.
The Lip Shimmer was highly pigmented however the color just wasn't right for me. It was a little too dark and on the brown side and for someone who hardly wears color on her lips this just wasn't working for me. I also wasn't a fan of the shimmer and therefore truthfully tried it on one time. It retails for $5.99 cdn which is a great price for something so pigmented and is 100% natural.
The last item I tried was the Replenishing lip balm which has a slight pinkish hue to it in the tube but was extremely sheer on which I loved. This item felt great on my lips and really kept them moisturized. It does have a scent which I'm sure comes from the pomegranate oil but I don't mind it. This item is 100% natural and sells for $4.49 cdn which is a decent price as far as natural products go. This is definitely a product I will continue to use and would highly recommend.
