Perhaps it’s because my 30th birthday is less than 2 weeks away, but I am starting to notice that I can no longer rely on my young, fresh look to get me by. My skin is beginning to show its age… pores a little more pore-ish, those cute wrinkles you get when you wake -up from a deep sleep, now cover half my face in the morning like a topographical map and aren’t so cute any more because they linger for hours after I have gotten out of bed, and the worst, was when I got a slight sunburn on my face and noticed that I had a ‘crow’s feet tan!’ (my face was slightly red, except for these 2 little lines on the side of each eye – it looked like I had applied some sort of crazy circus make-up for about a day until the sunburn faded) I have come to the realization that, as much as I hate to admit it, it’s time for me to invest more effort in my ‘beauty routine’ if I want this young mug to stay far away from sallow and sagging for as long as possible.
But it’s not realistic for me to think that I can just dive into toners, astringents, scrubs, eye creams, masks, essential oils, moisturizers, etc. I need to take baby steps. And that is where Burt comes in. Burt, of Burt’s Bees, that is – the bees’ knees for sure! I have always been in love with BB’s lip balm and bar soaps (one of the few beauty products I will actually buy) -- but after recently receiving some free trial sized products in my last order of balm and bars from Burt, I was hooked! Even if the stuff didn’t work (which it most certainly does), I would buy it just for the smells!!
Here’s are some of the BB’s products I am in love with:
Peppermint Rosemary Body Bar
Milk and Honey Body Lotion
Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream (super love!)
Beeswax Lip Balm (I have one of these in every drawer in our house…)
And with products for every need (even babies and men) there is sure to be something everyone in the family can enjoy! Not to mention, I think Burt and I are on the same beauty wavelength – simple and effortless should be key. In fact, I am going to place an order right now for the Naturally Ageless line (look at those reviews!!), and might give the baby product line a try... All of this ‘bee’ talk has made me want to snatch up the whole store!
