Brand Focus #2 - Burt's Bees




Hello everyone! I know this post is a tiny bit late, but here's the second part to my 'Brand Focus' series, dedicated to Burt's Bees. This wonderful natural cosmetics company was founded in 1984 by Roxanne Quimby, and has grown from strength to strength since then. In 1994, Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm was created, and remains as the company's #1 bestseller today.. (and one of my firm favourites!)

Not only are all of the products a lot more natural than your average drugstore finds, they also smell fantastic. I highly recommend you make your way to your local Boots or Holland & Barrett and give a couple a sniff, you'll instantly fall in love!


Firstly, I'll start with the lip balms. These tend to come in two different forms: a twisty stick, and a little metal tin. I personally prefer the sticks as I find them easier to use, but the tin is great to slip into your pocket, and feels a little more luxurious. (Not to mention it has an adorable bee illustration on the lid!)
The sticks (and sticks only, as far as I am aware) come in a number of different flavours/types. The original Beeswax with Vitamin E and Pepperment (a very tingly-type lip balm, and smells so good!), Beeswax with Mango Extract (my personal favourite),  Pomegranate Oil, Beeswax with Honey, and Beeswax with Pink Grapefruit. I believe there are a few others as well, as well as tinted balms, but these listed tend to be the most readily available. They can be found in most Boots stores for £3.69, and are occasionally on offer.

I'm only going to lightly touch on the rest of the Burt's Bees range, as there is such a variety of products available, from Cuticle Creams to Shampoos. I've only heard good things about all of these products, but am yet to try most of them. 
However, if you decide to try one thing, (aside from the lip balms) I would definitely recommend any one of their hand creams. They are ever so hydrating, and smell so fresh! They do retail for a little more than your average cream, but are worth it for the packaging alone (I can't get enough of those little bees!) Whatever you do decide to try, I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed.



Thanks for reading, and I'd love to hear what you think down below! :)
