Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Gloss & Lip Shine Swatches & Review

Press SampleAffiliate Links

I can’t even believe how long I’ve been a fan of Burt’s Bees lip products.  Even back in high school this was always the “popular” lip product to whip out at your desk or locker for a quick and clear touch-up to make your lips look supple again.  How I WISH that back then we had all of these shades and products to choose from!

Now available at a drugstore near you, Burt’s Bees features twelve 100% natural Lip Glosses ($8.99) as well as 100% natural Lip Shines ($6.99).  I have six of the glosses and three of the shines to share with you, and I’m pretty sure… NO… absolutely sure, you’re going to love them as much as I do.

The Lip Glosses have a lovely color to them, and are pleasantly not high on the sticky factor.  When I was swatching them on my arm they felt sticky, so I was worried, but they feel comfortable on the lips.  The formula itself is thin, so I have to dip my wand in the tube three times to get even color on my lips, and it’s not super glossy.

The Lip Shine are much more sheer than the glosses, but make excellent toppers since they do have a ton of shine and slip.  These are also not sticky, even though the formula is thicker than that of the glosses.

Have you tried any of the Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Glosses or Lip Shines?  Which are your faves?

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Face Care Photos & Review

Especially during these winter months, I need to find extreme hydration wherever I can get it.  I tend towards oily in the t-zone, but once it gets cold outside my face dries out and I feel like I need to constantly apply a moisturizer ALL DAY.  Clearly, I don’t have time to do that, or I’d never be able to wear makeup.  Which, being a beauty blogger, just won’t do.

Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Face Care is said to be clinically proven to intensely hydrate dry skin as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Within this trial I got the opportunity to test out the Cream Cleanser ($9.99), Treatment Mask ($17.99) and Night Cream ($17.99).

I love how each product made my skin look and feel, however my favorite of the three is the Night Cream.  It applies easily in the evening over cleansed skin and does not feel greasy.  It absorbs in quickly, but not fast.  You don’t want a cream to just sink right in to your skin, it needs to ease in for optimal and long-lasting hydration.  When you wake up your skin still feels soft and not tight (mine seems to dry out ridiculously fast over night).

The scent is muted, letting you enjoy the feeling of the product working it’s magic on your skin.  I found that this line of face care removed my makeup very well and also cleansed my face of dirt and oils, while not drying me out.

Purchase Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Face Care at mass retailers and grocery stores nationwide.
