Candles -Burt's Bees -Lavender Fields Soy Candle

on 4/22/2019 11:41:00 PM

I got two of these candles from Burt's Bees and I am in love! These candles are so relaxing and soothing with an earthy lavender scent. I like to light these two candles at night in my bedroom and fall asleep to this scent. Weird right? Trust me, if you're a natural fanatic like me, then please give these a try! I got these in two different gift sets at Walgreens around the holidays and have no regrets, whatsoever. Among my many reviews on MAU, I have never reviewed a candle, but I had to get on here and give this gem some credit! I will repurchase this lovely scented soy candle whenever I run out! Burt's Bees has now turned me into a candle fanatic and I love that I'm not breathing in a bunch of synthetic chemicals! Love love love!

Lipstick -Burt's Bees -Matte Lip Crayon

on 4/21/2019 9:32:00 PM

I picked this up in Redwood Forest since I'm allergic to a lot of drugstore lipsticks and was hoping natural products would fit me better. This is seriously an overpriced tinted lip balm, no joke. I needed to apply this with a heavy hand to even see anything. It barely showed any color on my lips (and I'm extremely pale with light pink lips), smelled like a crayon/similar to their lip balms, and dried my lips out badly. I had to use lip balm (not Burt's Bees) for two days to get them back to normal. My mom has also tried these before and agreed they were drying for her as well.

I'm overall finding that I'm not a fan of Burt's Bees lip products, so maybe my body chemistry just hates them. But I feel like there are better lipsticks out there that are less drying with a more opaque color for this price or a bit more.

Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees -Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme

I will be honest, I was not a Hand Cream Purchaser or interested in any Hand Cream Products. This little gem came in a Subscription Box and I love it so much, I already bought 2/2 Ounce Jars
Packaging comes in a glass jar with a twist off cap. The thing that Lured me in was the Scent! Can I say it smells soo good, I that I want to eat it?! After Appliying and Rubbing into the Skin, it leaves your hands feeling Butter Soft and Smooth. I have already repurchased this twice and can't stop using it. The Fragrance is just divine and this is a Top Quality Product. I highly recommend the try. I always get asked what yummy perfume I am wearing and it is just a Hand Cream. You won't be disappointed and if it were Edible, I would eat it.

Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees -Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

on 4/20/2019 8:41:00 PM

Quite nice, especially on a budget. Don't let the colour put you off, it goes on very sheer with a slight tint effect, natural enough even for school. Top of the ingredients list are sunflower oil, beeswax, coconut oil, castor oil, lanolin, and pomegranate oil - all commonly used in cosmetics as moisturising ingredients. I think the relatively high content of beeswax and coconut oil in this lead to its stiff, firmer texture in cooler ambient temperatures - when I first tried it, I was unimpressed as it seemed so unyielding, like it took far too much effort to rake it across my lips to get enough of it on. Forgive the uninspired comparison but it was as if I was trying to use a candle as a lip balm. So I was going to just throw it away, and put it in my jeans pocket intending to toss it later on. I thought i'd try it one more time to be sure, and was pleasantly surprised by how much better it was - my body heat had warmed it up enough that it it went on easily, and actually felt moisturising. Probably down to the beeswax and coconut oil, solid at room temperature. Needless to say I kept it, so long as it's warmed up a little it works great.


Lipstick -Burt's Bees -100% Natural Moisturizing Lipstick

on 4/9/2019 12:18:00 PM

I have mixed feelings about this product. In my attempt to go more natural (and sensibly priced) I was drawn to these. I do like there is little to no scent but because its more natural I have noticed some issues with bumps appearing on older on sale lipstick s or if I buy online. Too bad because with some tweaking this could be a great product maybe change the packaging to some thing less bulky but not cut back on the product and do something about the shea butter causes bumps . . I will post a pic later what I mean.

That being said my fav shade is Lily Lake . Would love to see this in balm form . Love the tinted balms in the brown tube. I still have the original Sunset Cruise but the new ones appear more brown.:/

Lipstick -Burt's Bees -100% Natural Moisturizing Lipstick

I love the colours but this isn’t actually an ideal product unless you just get a lighter shade for the moisturizing effect. The liquid lipsticks are beautiful though! 5 stars for those esp blotted a bit. They are like cream lipsticks in a liquid formula not long wearing just normal but v comfortable and beautiful effect


Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees -Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm

foto

The texture is unlike any other BB lip balm. It’s softer and feels sort of greasy when I use it. The problem is that... well it sucks. I find myself reapplying it every hour and a half. Many others have stated it has actually dried their lips even more, and it’s true.

So it’s the crappiest of all Burt’s and even costs more.
It’s a no for me dawg, please do not bother even looking at this evil product.

Cleansers -Burt's Bees -Facial Cleansing Oil

on 3/27/2019 8:04:00 AM

I really like the Clinique Take the Day off cleansing balm. I went through two containers and I read about this Burt's Bees Cleansing oil and for the price I had to try it. I was a bit nervous to try this because I am allergic to Burt's Bees lip balms. I tried this because of the price and that this is an oil. Clinique Take the Day off is easier to scoop out into your hand, but I find that sometimes that getting my waterproof mascara off, Clinique struggles. Then I purchased the Clinique Take the Day off for eyes and still the waterproof mascara did not come off. This gets expensive, Burt's Bees I can use on the entire face, neck, and eyes.

The pump is nice with the locking device so if you had to travel with it, you can without the product spilling out. I like that. The product is an oil, so make sure to pump into your hands and cup them or the product will run out. I will use one pump and then rub into both hands and then rub into the entire face and eyes. This stuff is better than Clinique because it removes all my makeup... even waterproof mascara. I will apply this all over my face to remove makeup and then I will sweep the excess into the roots to ends of my hair. My hair feels nice.

I use Neutrogena acne wash after this product so I have not noticed any breakouts and/or issues using this. This product can be a bit drying on the skin in the winter. After removing makeup, washing my face, I will apply moisturizer to put hydration back into the face.

Here is the weirdest awesome side affect of this product. I have been using this for over a month. I noticed that my eyelashes have gotten longer and fuller. Since I sweep this through my hair, I am wondering if my hair will get fuller. Will update later.

Treatments -Burt's Bees -Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

on 3/25/2019 1:33:00 PM

I really enjoy this cuticle cream and it does work for me. My fingernails are soooo dry and in horrible shape right now, BUT when using this, the skin around those ugly nails look great and hydrated. I'm hoping it will help hydrate my nails and they will grow some, but that's not what this product is marketed for so I won't rate it on that.

I am fine with the packaging, but I'd prefer a tube. The product itself is very buttery and smooth. I like that it stays where I put it and doesn't drip all over the place. I can put this on my nails and still type or play on my phone and it doesn't transfer everywhere while it's working.

I use this several times throughout the day and can definitely tell a difference after only a few uses. My nail beds looks really smooth and healthy, so I'm good with that. I throw this in my purse and can use it anywhere, anytime. The smell is just an added bonus!

Lip Gloss -Burt's Bees -100% Natural Lip Gloss (All Colors)

on 3/24/2019 8:16:00 PM

foto

I really like this! The color (Sweet Sunset) is so beautiful - it's a dark vampy for me which is great for some of my outfits but it's also not too dark or so dramatic I can't wear this in the day time....it's just right. I don't find this to be overly glossy, it's just a small amount of shine, which I enjoy. There's a very slight stickiness to to this product, but far less than most glosses I've tried over the years. This really doesn't have much (if any) moisturizing effects, but I don't find it to be drying.

I wish the packaging was a little different with a longer wand. It's partially because of the color, but this definitely needs a mirror to apply. I find it fairly long lasting (without drinking), but pretty average as far as needing reapplication with eating/drinking. I don't mind the scent (sort of a play-dough type) and actually unless I put my nose directly to the wand I can't really smell it. I would definitely look to repurchase or potentially seek out a dupe. So far, I'm really enjoying this product for the color and light gloss.

Bronzers -Burt's Bees -All Aglow Bronzer & Highlighter Stick - Golden Shimmer

on 3/24/2019 7:14:00 PM

foto

EDIT: Well, the honeymoon is over. This had no staying power whatsoever and broke me out in the cheek area in deep cystic zits (curse you, coconut oil). And the smell...somewhere between chemicals and rancid oil...it was unrelenting. So that's a big disappointed no from me.

Right. This is my first foray into Burt's Bees makeup. I'm a bit leery of drugstore makeup, and I find the packaging of the line slightly tacky, but I'd heard some good things.
There's been a good amount of consternation online about this product and its lack of bronzing/colour payoff. Is this an actual bronzer, as the name implies? No. Not, it isn't. What this IS is more of a highlighter/face gloss hybrid which ends up being much more flattering to older skins. I'd put it down as a cross between Glossier Haloscope and the Ciate Dewy Stix. Compared to my Mac Cream Colour Base in Hush, which was reading as pasty, this is very natural and pleasing.

I get very dry, flaky lips & recently this has been the only thing that has soothed, smoothed and moisturised them properly. I have tried Carmex, Blistex, La Roche Posay Cicaplast & Aquaphor - this has beaten them all! I have just re-ordered and will continue to do so

Lipstick -Burt's Bees -100% Natural Moisturizing Lipstick

No, no, nope! Everything is weird about this product. The packaging looks good from afar but feels light and cheap and the spinner at the bottom is so light it can wind itself up. The product smells like cheap lipstick from the 80s. It feels ok on but it has zero colour pay off - it is a glowing sheer at best. I’m really disappointed as I like the brand but the smell is terrible.

Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees -Body Lotion with Milk & Honey

foto

I like the smell of Burt's Bees Lotion with Milk and Honey. That's mainly why I bought it. It's a lightweight lotion. Not a heavy duty one. Which is unfortunate. I was hoping for a thicker lotion to apply after showers... so I guess I'll stick with Hemp Seed oil.

This is still a nice lotion to keep on your night stand, or maybe your desk a work. But not necessarily a deep, moisturizing one for after a shower. It's a nice, soft everyday lotion. Good for both genders. Probably won't buy again because I like more natural stuff (generally organic) but it's not terrible if you're just looking for regular lotion that is slightly more natural than what you mainly see on store shelves.
