Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm

I am a huge fan of both Burt’s Bees and Pumpkin Spice so a few years ago when I discovered the Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm I was hooked! Although this flavor can be a bit elusive. I found this one at Wal-Mart this year and I saw that Amazon has them. However they appear to be in short supply.

What’s to love?

I love that the Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm is 100% natural and it smells amazing without being overpowering. It keeps my lips nice and hydrated even on the coldest days. It’s one of my favorite lip balms!

Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea Extract Review

I received a 10-pack of the Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea Extract in my April Target Box and I really love them! These 99.1% natural wipes make my face feel amazing.

What’s to love?

I am a huge fan of the Burt’s Bees line so it’s no surprise that I love their facial wipes.

These super fresh Facial Cleansing Towelettes have White Tea Extract are so refreshing. They have  White Tea, Cucumber and Aloe and never irritate my face.

I really like the scent of these towelettes, it’s a light citrus smell and they do a great job removing my make-up. I also love that they are non-oily and never leave my face feeling greasy.

I like keeping a pack in my purse for on-the-go too!

They are Dermatologist-tested and ophthalmologist-tested.

Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon Review

I am on a lipstick roll this week! I just tried out the Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon which comes in 6 creamy shades including Sedona Sands, Redwood Forrest, Niagara Overlook, Carolina Coast, Hawaiian Smolder and Napa Vineyard. I really like the location names, I have the Hawaiian Smolder shade which is a pretty pink.

What’s to love?

I am becoming quite the fan of lip crayons lately. I love how easy and versatile they are to use and they fit really well into a make-up bag. I wish we had these in the 80’s!

I feel like the Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon is up there with the high-end brands. This natural crayon uses shea butter for moisture and has no scent or flavor. To me this feels like a smooth cream and the pigmentation is pretty high. I got great coverage with one coat and it feel moisturizing (but not sticky) on my lips. I also worn it at dinner and it had good staying power.

I would definitely buy the Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon again. The Napa Vineyard shade is so pretty, I love those raisin shades.

Burt’s Bees Lipstick Review

I am so excited to now have a Burt’s Bees Lipstick. I was at the Fresh Thyme Farmer’s Market again today and I picked up Fuchsia Flood while I was there.


What’s to love?

I’ve always loved the Burt’s Bees lip balm line so it’s no surprise that I love their lipstick too. This product is 100% natural and the featured ingredients are Beeswax, Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, and Vitamin E.

The packaging is really neat too. The square tube is nice and heft with a cool beehive pattern that shows the color in the hive holes. I chose the Fuchsia Flood shade which is a bright pink.

The Burt’s Bees Lipstick comes in 18 shades and I want to try the Ruby Ripple next. This lipstick is nice and firm, yet it goes on very smoothly. The finish is a beautiful creme and my lips feel very moisturized without being sticky and the pigmentation is good.

The product claims 8-hour wear and while it was long-lasting I did reapply a few times during the day. I just can never get 8 hours out of a creme but I don’t mind reapplying.

Price: $8.99

Target January 2017 Beauty Box (Box 1 & Box 2)

I nearly hugged the mail man when he showed up with my 2 Target January Beauty Boxes just now. I am a huge beauty box junky, there’s something about getting a surprise box in the mail that just makes my day.

Here’s a picture of both boxes I got today!


The best way to get a Target Beauty Box is to search for “Beauty Box” on their site starting on the 1st of every month. The early bird gets the worm (or beauty) and they sell out fast.

I’ll be reviewing these items over the next month too.

Box Number 1 was $10 with free shipping.

I got Colgate Enamel Heath Toothpaste, Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Scrub, Amlactin Body Lotion, Burt’s Bees Day Lotion, eb5 Intense Moisture Cream, Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse, Nexxus Finishing Mist and Revitaflift.


Box Number 2 was $5 with free shipping.

I got Revlon Kiss, Vaseline Cocoa Radiant, Palmer’s Coconut Oil, Mane ‘n Tail, Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner, Simple Facial Wipes, Miss Jessie’s Quick Curls and Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Shampoo & Condition.

I love giving Burt’s Bees for Christmas because everyone love it so much! I picked up this Burt’s Bees Hive Favorites Holiday Gift Set Beeswax 2 pc from Target for $4.99 for my MIL.


What’s to love?

I am a huge fan of the Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm, it smells amazing and always keeps my lips so soft.

You also get a Milk & Honey Body Lotion for normal to dry skin. This lotion is very nice and always leaves my hands smooth and moisturized.

I also love the red and gold holiday packaging. These make great little gifts and stocking stuffers.

I also picked up the Burt’s Bees Skin Essentials Tin Holiday Gift Set 5 pc for $5.99.

Burt’s Bees 2 in 1 Tearless Shampoo & Conditioner for Puppies Review

I’m reviewing something a bit different today because dogs need some beauty help too. The Burt’s Bees 2 in 1 Tearless Shampoo & Conditioner for Puppies is my favorite dog shampoo ever.


What’s to love?

We have a 2-year-old Chiweenie named Coco and I’ve been using the Burt’s Bees shampoo on her since she was a puppy and I still use the same formula. This is the only dog shampoo that makes her smell great, gives her a shiny coat and is non-irritating.

I just use about a quarter sized drop and rub into Coco’s fur. It lathers really nicely and washes out clean. Burt’s Bees and an entire pet line if you want to try another formula too.

It’s got Buttermilk and Linseed Oil in the formula and has a very earthy natural scent. This product is Made in the USA to which I love.

Here’s Coco resting post bath in her bed!


If you want to see more of Coco she’s on this amazing free site for dogs called Pack.
