This post is sponsored by Burt's Bees, in collaboration with DataRank and Walmart, but all thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.
Although I know that there are locations other than the Midwest that experience chilling, brutal winters, there are days that I've looked out at our frozen tundra and just felt as though I was in the coldest place on earth.
I could try to look on the bright side and think about how there is no humidity in the air or that the mosquitoes have long disappeared, but it's difficult when I'm distracted by chapped lips and cracking hands and feet. But it's not only me, I feel even worse when I see my kids itching at their dry skin or scratching at irritated patches of eczema. Thanks a lot, winter.
So, although my vision of spending the coldest months relaxing on the beach somewhere will forever stay a dream, at least I can combat the effects that winter has on our skin thanks to the high quality natural products available from Burt's Bees.
Started 30 years ago from the partnership of an artist and a beekeeper, Burt's Bees has always stayed true to a very simple idea: what you put on your body should be made from the best that nature has to offer.
Is it possible to not be a fan when all of Burt's Bees products are all natural and contain no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, artificial ingredients or fillers? Instead of an ingredient list filled with chemicals, compounds and symbols, these products are created from natural items including beeswax, honey, lemon, almond, aloe, pomegranate, acai berry and more.
Add to that the fact that Burt's Bees never tests their products on animals; they have strong beliefs in being simple, natural and responsible; they won't accept anything less than striving for their own extremely high standards; and they continue to receive rave reviews and responses on the effectiveness and quality of their products, and it is clear that Burt's Bees is a winner all around.
What are you waiting for? It's time to go to Walmart and pick up your favorites (and some new, soon-to-be-favorites) from Burt's Bees!
I love that my local Walmart has a large selection of Burt's Bees products (for adults, the Baby Bee products are displayed separately in the baby section) and has them clearly labeled as natural beauty with a mention of many of the chemicals that are not contained in them.
Whether you are looking to pamper and protect your feet, lips, hands or more, each one is waiting right here!
While there are many Burt's Bees products that we have tried and enjoyed, a few of the essentials that we have especially liked and that many friends have liked as well include:
Burt's Bee's Lip Balm: Formulated to moisturize, hydrate and nourish, I have always appreciated the way that Burt's Bees' lip balms manage to soften and condition my lips without leaving them overly greasy. The result of one application of any of their wide range of flavors is a luxurious, soothing feeling that keep our lips comforted throughout the winter.
Burt's Bees Hand Salve: No one likes the feeling of dry hands, chipping nails and peeling cuticles, so being able to reach for a product that is brimming with botanical oils, herbs and beeswax is a must. This Hand Salve leaves no oily residue, has a sweet, subtle scent and allows your hard-working hands to stay relieved and moisturized day and night.
Burt's Bees Peppermint Foot Lotion: Even though my feet aren't on display in sandals during the winter, that doesn't mean that I want dry, cracked heels and itchy, calloused soles. Instead, this Peppermint Foot Lotion is light, creamy and refreshing, just right for soothing my tired feet.
While I get a mini foot massage, the Peppermint and Menthol work to revive my tootsies while the Vegetable-based Glycerin and Coconut Oil help to soften any areas that are rough and ragged. Yay for happy feet!
With such a variety of products available on the market, knowing that I can turn to Burt's Bees for consistently high quality items with all natural ingredients and results that will be appreciated by my entire family is a welcome relief. It really is no wonder that today, as they celebrate their 30th anniversary, that they are loved from coast to coast!
