Drugstore Find:Burt’s Bees lavender & honey hand cream with shea butter

This hand cream was something I bought on a whim. I find myself washing my hands so much that its just always chapped so I like to throw in a hand cream or something almost goopy if that makes sense rich heavy like lucas papaw ointment. This hand cream is 99.0% natural which I think is amazing. Smells of lavender, honey and shea for sure. You will smell the subtle honey and shea but mostly the lavender but its not the strong lavender like some brands carry its milder thanks to the honey. Hands are instantly silky after one use. I know this is going to sound bad but its almost as good as this famous tube style hand cream that costs more…don’t get me wrong I like the brand too but this one is a keeper for the price. Like most Burt’s bees products, a winner.

10/10 because the price was like $5 for 1 oz and you use so little each time. Tube will go a long way.

Back to the Basics.

It’s official as much as we had rain on and off for what seemed like a full week, the sun is out and I put away all of my cleansing balms. I just went back to the burt’s bees cleansing oil. Infact it had been some time since I used it and I forgot how quick and good it was! I went back and bought another bottle it was the last bottle there I quit seeing it at Walmart so I feel it is getting discontinued. I have this odd feeling it cost more to make it then what it is selling for. Its really good stuff.

Its  like 81 or 82 degrees so I think its officially-no ordering online kinda weather for me. Not even a limited edition can lure me–I think I’m all set with my skincare for the next 3-4 months so I’m feeling really good about that. I’m putting my foot down on this one. No more haircare and no more skincare because I’m really digging my new Jurlique stuff I got.

Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil

After realizing I was running out of my last bottle of DHC cleansing oil, I thought about what cleansing oils were out on the market that were made for sensitive skin and under $30, I came across the burt’s bees one. I had been thinking about buying that cleansing oil for quite some time but I wasn’t sure. I saw the ingredients, the pricepoint and I was like whatever i’ll get it. WHAT A GOOD BUY. its 100% natural, its 6oz for about $15-17 depeneding on where you buy it. The scent is mild for something that has coconut in it and one pump is almost too much to cleanse off about 3 layers of my sunscreen I wear daily. So now as much as I hate to part with my dermalogica precleanse and my DHC cleansing oil, I’m excited to introduce my dry sensitive skin to burt’s bees! Next on my list their rose water
