Renewing My Skin, Part 2
April and May Beauty Favorites
Alright it’s been roughly a month since I’ve been using the Burt’s Bees Renewing line and I’m pleased with the results! While it’s probably the most trivial, my favorite part of the products was the pleasant, semi-earthy aroma. I hate products that are too floral or pungent on my face since I smell it all day. These reminded me of a spa. Of the handful of products from the line, my absolute favorite was the Burt’s Bees Renewal Firming Night Cream. I loved how hydrating it was without feeling too heavy. I’ve tried night creams in the past that are just too sticky and heavy, and I was afraid to smear it all around as I slept. So the consistency of this one was just right! I found that on days when I wasn’t planning on wearing much makeup, I would just splash my face with a bit of lukewarm water and didn’t even need to add a moisturizer for the day. That’s how nourishing the night cream was. Here I am without a stitch of makeup. The biggest thing I noticed was just a general look of health to my skin. It may sound cliche but I think I can see a nicer glow now that I could before. It looks, and feels, fresher if that makes any sense. I also noticed more smoothness, especially on my forehead. I noticed a big change in the melasma under my eyes, which could partially be due to time passing, but could also be thanks to the renewing properties of the cleaner and Sensitive Face Serum. Either way, I’m pleased to see those spots fading. Up close and personal, the crows feet at the outer part of my eyelids isn’t quite as noticeable. That wasn’t a major concern of mine, but I’m always happy to be doing good things for my skin NOW instead of trying to back track once I’m old and wrinkly. And I spotted my first grey hair the other week so it’s coming quickly. The price point for this line, along with anything else from Burt’s Bees is fantastic. I’d really recommend looking into it if you are in the market for some new skincare!
