I just recently became informed that Burt Shavitz, the creator of Burt’s Bees, has recently passed on. I am a huge advocate for organic and au’ natural products and Burt’s Bees is one of my favorites. Although Burt Shavitz hasn’t owned the company for some time, now owned by Clorox, his love for bee keeping has paved the way for natural products in the common drug store.
A little about Burt…
Burt is a fellow Manhattan native who moved to Maine and found his passion for bees as a source of income. His partner Roxanne Quimby began making candles from bees-wax and then later their signature lip balm! You can watch the documentary about Burt called Burt’s Buzz to learn more!
Here are my favorite Burt’s Bees products….
Lip Balm, tinted of course! A great subtle color and super moisturizing.
Face Wipes, an after gym essential
Intense Hydration Eye Cream, the BEST eye cream! Immediately gets rid of puffiness in the morning.
Acne Solutions Pore Refining Scrub, great for when your skin needs a SOS!
Herbal Blemish Stick, with tea tree and other essential oils this stick is the best blemish zapper I have ever used and I’ve tried almost every drug store product out there.
Lemon butter Cuticle Cream, a winter must have! Will make your manicure last forever and keep your nails looking hydrated.
Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme, great for winter or after a day at the beach. Super moisturizing.
