Today marks the 30th anniversary of Burt's Bees, one of those brands that's completely synonomous with natural beauty and, to me, encaptures lipcare especially. To celebrate, Burt's Bees founder, Burt Shavitz is hosting a live webcast to drill home the brand ethos of natural beauty at its finest. Fancy joining in? Simply visit facebook.com/burtsbeesuk and tag a birthday message with #burtsbeeday, then tune in at 9pm BST to see if Burt reads your message during the live feed over at burtsbeeday.com!
Bees are so important to our day to day lives; they make up nearly 1/3 of our food supply. 75-95% of all flowering plants on earth rely on pollination to survive. When you base it on statistics alone you come to realise just how vital the sustainability of the company impacts our lives, and the lives of all those beautiful little creatures. Buzzing! Quite literally…
So with Burt on my mind, I pull together some of my favourites from his range; these are products I alternate in my handbag on a weekly basis. The 100% natural lip glosses were something I had to try out in anticipation of a non-sticky lip with just the right amount of colour. Turns out these little honeycomb-patterned beauties haven't left my lips in weeks, and are even better paired over a nude or pastel lipstick for a little subdued shine. The Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream has been on my bedside table since it's first opening and has helped turn my dry and sad extremities into hands I love to show off. Bring on the Autumn because I'm ready for when the cold hits!
