I don’t think there are many brands that can beat Burt’s Bees when it comes to lip care. Their lip balm is relatively inexpensive (their honey lip balm, my personal favorite, is only $3) and it really packs a punch. I have some of the driest lips of anyone I know, and this stuff is really a life saver. I’ve actually felt moments of panic when my lips felt like they were cracking and I didn’t have my Burt’s Bees nearby.
What’s really great about the company is that everything is natural and most of their packaging is from recycled materials. I dig companies with a conscience, and Burt’s definitely fits the bill here.
I’ve also used Burt’s Bees shampoos and conditioners. I give them a solid B. I love the fact that they are natural and sulfate free, and they usually smell pretty good. The amount of lather is decent considering that it’s a sulfate free shampoo, and the conditioner is smooth and silky. My first experience with the shampoo put me off a bit because there was a large glob (for lack of a better word) in the middle of my Green Tea and Fennel Seed shampoo, which meant I had to shake vigorously to get it to mix with the liquid in the bottle. I don’t know if it was an isolated event or not, because my next bottle (Pomegranate and Soy) did not have this problem.
The hair care products are also very affordable, retailing at $8 with frequent sales. I have paid upwards of $20 per bottle for sulfate-free haircare, so this is a pretty big deal.
Burt’s Bees also offers many other products, such as skin care and even throat lozenges and toothpaste!
Have you used Burt’s Bees for lip care or hair care? What are your thoughts?
