The Burt's & the Bees

Photos from Burt's Bees

Recently, I have been experiencing a run of good skin days -- akin to good hair days, but better, as you can't put a hat on your face. I owe a portion of this good fortune to my grownup diligence towards skin care, but most of the credit is due to Burt's Bees. As much as I love Clinique's makeup, I found that their skin care was not quite right for my skin (oily, with absolutely no dryness). I've always loved Burt's Bees' body wash, shampoo and hand lotion, so I thought I'd try out their facial care line. Here's a run down of the products that have become my favorites:

1. I had been using a cleanser + a moisturizer, but my skin always felt greasy and gross. Realizing that I needed a little less moisture, I tried the Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream, which feels like lotion but cleanses like soap. It is wonderful, and leaves my skin feeling clean and nourished.

2. If a blemish may arise, the roll-on treatment of the Herbal Blemish Stick stops it in its tracks. I'm still in love with my Clinique mask, but the benefit of this product is that I can toss it in my purse and manage my complexion during the day, sink and mirror free.

3. I have always been bad about taking off my makeup at night. After brushing my teeth, taking my vitamins, and finishing any leftover homework, the task of washing my face is far too daunting. However, the Facial Towelettes with White Tea Extract are an easy way to scrub up, suds (and effort) free.

I've got a few more products I'd like to try, and I'll keep you guys posted on how they work out. As for now, give these three a try, and let me know how it goes!
