I’ve always been a fan of Burt’s Bees lip balms. (You know, the ones in the namesake yellow tubes that turn nasty cracked lips into smooth, kissable ones?) But I have never really been into the other Burt’s Bees products. Apparently, they’ve got a whole slew of natural products geared towards your face, body, and hair, and they’re just as fab as my fave lip balms.
I recently tried out Burt’s Bees Brightening Even-Tone Moisturizing Cream, which is made with fresh daisy extracts and other botanicals and natural fruit ingredients like apricots, jojoba oil, sugar cane, and the list goes on. I wasn’t drawn to this product because of its impressive list of natural ingredients, but rather because it claimed that 100% of women saw a brighter looking face and that discolouration in their pigment was diminished after eight weeks. I thought, No way in hell did all those women who tried this see amazing results! So I took it into my own hands to see if this product was truly a miracle cream or not…
Eight weeks later and I am now officially part of the 100% of women who saw results with this Burt’s Bees cream. I kid you not, my face is smoother, brighter, and slightly more luminous. I used this moisturizer in the mornings and evenings after I’d cleansed my face, along with my day cream. I’ve never really had a skin ‘routine’ and usually just slap on whatever cream is on my table, but after using the Burt’s Bees Brightening Cream, I find myself having a morning and evening beauty routine – and boy-oh-boy is my skin ever thanking me for it!
The Burt’s Bees Brightening Even-Tone Moisturizing Cream can be purchased online for $29.99.
