HAUL / REVIEW / ADVERTORIAL
I learned about Burt’s Bees products a few years back when I needed something milder for my skin due to bad breakouts but then I didn’t find a shop to buy it locally. I was able to score some samples a year or so ago and tried to see if they worked for me. Thankfully, their skincare products work for my skin. But this time around I found out that you can shop for Burt’s Bees at Sephora Philippines online! Yup, they carry Burt’s Bees products! Since I am geographically-challenged, this makes me super happy! And guess what? They even got it delivered to my doorstep in less than a week!
Well, technically it took just 3 days if you don’t count the weekend. It was very well-packaged, each item was bubble-wrapped! If you don’t know Burt’s Bees already, they are an “Earth friendly, Natural Personal Care Company” who makes products for personal care, health, beauty, and personal hygiene. They are MADE IN THE USA, but you can get them from Sephora Philippines!!!
Alright, without further ado, here are the products I got and a mini review of each item:
Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Crayon in Niagara Overlook – I love it as my husband actually made a comment when I wore this. He doesn’t really fuss about my makeup but he says it looks very natural. And yes, it is 100% NATURAL, like literally. It’s very light so you may need to do a number of swipes to get it to show on your lips.
Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lipstick All Day Moisture Satin Finish in Blush Basin and Nile Nude – I picked these 2 colors because they look very natural. Again, natural as in the shades. With the summer season coming in full blast, I think wearing lighter shades of lipstick is the way to go. Do you agree?
Blush Basin is perfect for everyday wear. It’s very close to my natural lip color so I just love it!!! ‘Nuff said.
Nile Nude on the other hand is paler in color which I think looks great when paired with “smokey eyes”.
Burt’s Bees BB Cream with Noni Extract (Broad spectrum SPF 15) – Okay, honestly I didn’t know Noni can be used on the skin. Ha! I drink Noni juice and take other supplements containing Noni, but this is a first! Anyway, it works like most BB creams, giving the same awesome benefits, but this one is 98.9% natural. Oh gosh, don’t even get me started on how many BB creams broke me out before! *shivers at the thought* Perhaps it’s too early to tell if I’m hiyang to this or not, but I’m hopeful plus it’s the perfect medium shade for Filipina skin.
Burt’s Bees Natural Anti-Blemish Solutions Purifying Daily Cleanser with Willow Bark – Yes! This is what I’m talking about! No, seriously, I love how it cleans my skin without any harmful chemicals and it smells good, too. It does kind of remind me of the classic Neutrogena facial cleansers, but apparently this Anti-Blemish Solutions has salicylic acid.
