New in from Burt’s Bees

I’ve been trying out a few new goodies from Burt’s Bees recently. I was introduced to Burt’s Bees when they just launched in SA at a beautiful event. Burt’s Bees products are earth-friendly and contain no nasties.

One of my favourite products from Burt’s Bees is the Moisturising Lip Balm, so I was excited to try the *Mango version which contains Mango Butter. I love that the lip balm hydrates the lips and doesn’t just coat the surface which is a pet peeve of mine. It also smells so fruity and yummy. I reviewed the Vanilla Bean Lip Balm as well as a few other products here.

Below is a swatch of the blush in Toasted Cinnamon. Unfortunately the makeup range isn’t available in SA yet, but I am hoping we get it soon, as this blush is a beauty and I would love to try more makeup from the brand. The blush is silky smooth and is very pigmented. You only need a tiny amount, and be gentle, as even a tiny swirl of a brush picks up a lot of product. The blush blends well and doesn’t emphasize any imperfections, but leaves skin with a lovely glow.

When I first tried the Lip Shimmers I wasn’t too impressed as the shades I tried just didn’t work for me. But these two shades, *Cherry and Fig are absolutely beautiful on my skin tone. Although the name implies some shimmer, there is no glitter or sparkle, rather a beautiful shine, and the shades are quite pigmented too. They also hydrate the lips which I love, and have a refreshing minty scent and feel.

    Omg I’m actually embarrassed!! Since when did Burts Bees do makeup? Lol. I love the design of the bronzer, so pretty! I swear by my Burts Bees vanilla lipbalm – I apply it everyday and every night before bed, I will never go back to anything else xx

    I absolutely love Burts Bees but I’ve not really tried any of their beauty. The bronzer looks perfect for warmer days!

    I quite liked the Burt’s Bees mascara, especially as there was a brown option and the wand was really lovely to hold x

    I’ve only tried lip balms and hand/nail products from this brand but not those shimmery balms, which look perfect for these no makeup days x
