The buzz on Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care

Burts Bees Sheer Body Lotion and Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Towelette
Burt’s Bees
is a comfy, down home natural skin care line with some great products at wonderful prices. They recently sent a few products to test, and two standouts are the Cucumber and Aloe Sheer Body Lotion ($10) and the Peach and Willow Bark Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Towelettes ($6).

Burts Bees Sheer Body Lotion

When the weather gets warmer, I tend to stay away from body lotion. It just feels heavy and sticky, and I want sheer and light. The Cucumber and Aloe Sheer Body Lotion gives the hydration I love from body lotion, but it doesn’t give me wet, greasy skin. This magical lotion sprays on and smooths into skin so quickly it amazes me every time. The cucumber scent is light, fresh, and clean. The aloe makes it a great lotion after spending too much time in the sun, too. The Sheer Body Lotion also comes in two other scents – Violet & Mango and Clementine & Calla Lilly. I love the formula so I am definitely going to be checking out the other scents as well.

Burts Bees Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Towelettes

I am a huge fan of facial cleansing cloths in the summer. I always have some in my beach bag and when it’s hot out nothing refreshes as wonderfully as facial cloths. The Peach and Willow Bark Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Towelettes not only wipe away sweat, dirt, and makeup, they also gently exfoliate and lift away dead skin cells. Even though they exfoliate, the cleansing cloths aren’t rough, so if no worries if you have sensitive skin.  They smell like fresh peaches and are truly refreshing.


Burt Shavitz may have started his company with beeswax from his beehives, but now there are a myriad of skin care products made with the same simple philosophy of products made with the best nature has to offer. Take a closer look at this line next time you are at the store and I definitely recommend putting the Sheer Body Lotion and the Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Towelettes into your shopping basket!  – Lisa

When reading up about Burt’s Bees I found that their philosophy is The Greater Goodburts bee philosophyThey want to change the world and that includes using sustainable ingredients that are natural, recyclable and simple.

“In 2007, we established the Burt’s Bees Greater Good Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, organization
dedicated to sustaining charitable, grassroots initiatives that support human and honeybee health.

Since its inception, the foundation has issued $1.2 million in grants. In 2014 alone, the foundation donated $293,000 in proceeds to nonprofit organizations.”

When you are shopping at drugstores, Target, grocery stores, etc. keep your eye open for the familiar golden yellow packaging and look for their latest, most moisturizing addition: Burt’s Bees Squeezable Beeswax Lip Balm. — Marcia

Lip-centric songs and Burt’s Bees Natural Lip Balm

Burts Bees

I know you have seen Burt’s Bees products at the store but have you also heard husband and wife folk-pop group and Republic Records recording artists, Us The Duo – Michael and Carissa Alvarado – singing about them on Vine?  Us The Duo is generating a lot of buzz for their 6 second songs inspired by the different Burt’s Bees lip balm flavors.

Burts Bees Lip Balms

Well known for their #6SecondCovers, this folksy duo has been posting little ditties about Burt’s Bees since last November. The delicious Coconut & Pear inspired the lyrics, “Coconut & Pear, you’ve got the flowers in your hair. And we’re in love.” Wild Cherry got a little song worshiping too: “Wild Cherry, I like to savor. Pull it out ya pocket and uncap the flavor.”

Coconut & Pear (yummy yummy coconut) and Wild Cherry (tastes like a cherry Lifesaver) happen to be in my top three flavors, along with Vanilla Bean. The lip balms are smooth, hydrating, and truly tasty. They have subtle, natural flavors that are extremely impressive.
