I’ve got a certain admiration for Burt’s Bees* – sticking to its 100% natural ethos, and prominently displaying the leaping bunny logo on all its products (meaning they’re cruelty free), it’s somehow managed to come up with authentic products that actually work too.
The lip shimmer that I recently bought was on more of a whim – I’d been aiming to buy tinted lip balm* in Hibiscus, but I could only find the lip shimmer*, so I plumped for Apricot and it’s just lovely. Smooth to apply, tasting of mint with a slight tingle and no drying effect, I much prefer it to lipstick. The colour itself is a light shimmery coral and therefore subtle on the lips, but it does complete a full face of make-up (I normally prefer to only highlight my eyes with eye-liner). And what with winter approaching, it’s a good way to keep your lips hydrated as well as on trend!
Burt’s Bees itself is a great option if you’re looking for natural beauty products that are available in high street stores – it’s available on the Burt’s Bees site*, as well as in Boots*, and John Lewis* (although the product lines do vary).
P.S. I’ve more recently written about Burt’s Bees issues with parent company Clorox. Read the full post here →
