Burts Bees – Tinted Lip Balm

Burts Bees – Tinted Lip Balm

Another Burts Bees product review today – they are my current favourite natural cosmetics brand – and this is the second of two Burts Bees lip products that I have been testing out. You can read my first review on Burts Bees Lip Shimmer here. I think that Burts Bees are a great natural brand, striving to produce 100% natural beauty products and they also do a lot of work to help protect bees, given that a lot of their products contain beeswax. I have been using Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom for the past week, wearing it at home when I haven’t been wearing lipstick and also using it in the evening just before I go to bed so my lips stay moisturised overnight. Firstly I love Burts Bees’ packaging and this product doesn’t disappoint. The Tinted Lip Balm comes packaged in a cardboard tube, making it feel a bit more special than your other everyday run-of-the-mill lip balms. I just loved popping open the cardboard tubing...

Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Guava

This pink Lip Shimmer in Guava is the first of two Burts Bees lip products that I am testing right now. I just love Burts Bees’ vision – “…to create and educate people on truly natural products that have a positive effect on both you and the world you live in for the good of your well-being, for the good of the environment and for The Greater Good.” Burts Bees strive to produce 100% natural beauty products and they also do a lot of work to help protect bees, given that a lot of their products contain beeswax. In my opinion a lot of natural beauty brands scrimp on their packaging design and end up looking a bit down-market. Not Burts Bees! I just love their packaging in eye-catching yellow and red, with just a touch of the traditional about it. This little lip shimmer comes in a twist-up bullet formation (although it does not twist back down which is a bit annoying) with the eye-catching Burts Bees logo on the front. The...

Oh so natural…

Oh so natural…

Just a quick sneak preview to let you know some of the product reviews you can expect to see from Beauty Best Friend over the next week or so. Last week I took receipt of a number of natural skincare and lipcare beauty products, from the brands Jason Natural and Burts Bees. Both of these brands promote pure and natural ingredients, something that I really admire, and in time I would like to swap some of my usual ‘chemically enhanced’ products for more natural ones. The only problem being that, in the past, some of these natural skincare products haven’t really stood up to their chemical counterparts in terms of performance and longevity, but product development in the natural beauty arena has recently moved on in leaps and bounds and these products are now standing up for themselves. Keep an eye out for my reviews, and more information about these two great...
