[ mood | tired ]

I've been using the lipbalms forever, I pretty much converted my entire family to burt's bees lipstuff. Everyone was pretty much using carmex and this is so much better.
Now my current obsession is the naturally nourishing Milk and shea butter body wash. i LOVE the scent I was hoping the moisturizer had the same scent but it doesn't. I do like that though too

So, I just started using the Peppermint Shower Soap.. [08 Jul 2008|04:54pm]

And it's the greatest thing ever.
I've had a ridiculously stubborn patch of dry skin and it's really calmed down and is almost gone.

Thank you awesome soap. :]

I was worried that I'd smell suspiciously like a candy cane all day, but I didn't. I had my mom check, and the smell stayed in my bathroom and just left me feeling clean. And tingly. Not to the extent of the chapstick or the Soap Bark and Chamomile face cream, but you still feel it.

TOMATO [29 Apr 2008|01:58pm]

Anybody else use the Tomato toner and Tomato soap?

I say they worksbut the downside to it is dry skin. Anybody else have anything to say about them?

suggestions- hair products? [16 Mar 2008|11:34pm]

hi all
i'm new to this community. (:
i've tried BB's lipbalm and handcream and they were wonderful and smelled lovely. now i'm looking for a shampoo, does BB make effective shampoos? I have volumnous enough hair as it comes, it's also really hard..so i want something that will make it softer, if possible. Do they make such hair shampoos?
thanks in advance.

hi girls & boys,
if anyone would like to buy these burt's bees goodies i can't use, i'll take reasonable offers from good homes. :) i have a variety of brand new sample sizes from a bunch of gift sets all rolled into one, bag included, and there's also a full-size hand salve (used a handful of times), full-size strawberry lip balm (in the pot with a lid, just tested), and full-size cuticle cream. i'd like to keep the gift set together, but other than that, any combo is fine with me.

look in the bagCollapse )

you can paypal maharincess@gmail.com or send payment the good old mail in a truck way, and i've got some other stuff, too if you want to shop some more. thank you!

new member!
Here's my tale with burts bees.
I always had a problem with chapped lips, and burt bees chapsticks have been the only ones to really fix them! So, I just got the honey and pomegranate chapsticks. Completely addicted! Then I saw the new lip shimmers and had to get the papaya, rhubarb, and watermelon colors. I can't seem to find Raisin or Merlot anywhere, though :(

Now, the point of the post: I need some suggestions on the face products. I have combo skin but would like a good exfoliating, cleaning, scrub thingy and a moisturizer that would go well with it (something I can put on in the morning and not have any ickiness through the day). Most scrubs are too harsh on my skin and most moisturizers are too greasy. Are the Burts Bees products pretty gentle? I was thinking about getting Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub and the Marshmallow Vanishing Creme. Though, I have a feeling both are really strong. Is this a good combo? If not, can you tell me what is?

Hey I just joined. It all started with the wonderful chapstick and then I moved on to Milk & Honey body lotion.
Now I have two lip shimmers, a chapstick, herbal blemish stick and I just used the raspberry and brazil nut shampoo and conditioner and the citrus and ginger root body wash. Mmmm. Best shower of my life.

What else would you guys recommend?

New Products [11 Feb 2007|12:27pm]

Some of the new products for 2007 have been put up on the website.


I keep hearing they're going to discontinue stuff, but so far all I've seen is the lipstick and toothpaste. All of the products I use are, thankfully, still listed. Anyone have any ideas on what they have or are planning to discontinue?

I was curious as to if anyone here would be interested in going in with me on a burts bees order. I am able to get discounts on their products (as well as toms of maine and kiss my face!) for a limited time and want to have enough ordered (over $100) to have them ship to me as a flat rate shipping! If anyone is interested PLEASE contact me at jaded.pyratekk@gmail.com. You would only be paying the same as my discount and the shipping to your home! :)
I just need maybe 2 more people ordering with me (I have a few others already) :)

thanks everyone!

Burt's Bees honey lip balm [04 Dec 2006|08:29pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

Okay, folks. Has anyone else noticed this? They totally changed the formula for the Honey lip balm.

Here are the old ingredients:
Shea butter, almond oil, cocoa butter, coconut oil, beeswax, candelilla wax, lanolin, comfrey root, honey powder, rosemary extract, vegetable oil, fragrance

And the new reformulated version:
Beeswax, sunflower oil, coconut oil, lanolin, comfrey root, fragrance, tocopheryl acetate & tocopherol (Vitamin E), honey, rosemary leaf oil

They took out all the main ingredients. I'm pissed! I know that some people didn't like the gritty texture from the shea butter, so that's probably why they did it. BUT IT WAS SO GOOD BEFORE... and.... arrggggg... the new stuff is just lame. I don't know - I'm mad! I bought like ten tubes of the old formula now because it's the lip balm I use most often and I'm afraid I will never be able to find anything like it again.

Am I the only freak who is pissed about the change? Has anyone else here noticed? And does anyone have recommendations for affordable petroleum-free lip balms with shea butter??

Word on the street is that the Burt's lipsticks are about to be discontinued. They weren't on the last order form we got at work. So I'd suggest stocking-up if there's a shade you're absolutely in love with.

Hi, I'm new to Burt's Bees and just got my first Burt's haul the other day. I work at a book store, and get 33% off BB stuff :)

I got the Soap Bark and Chamomile facial cleanser, lip balm, and head to toe starter kit. My question: what are some other BB essentials I should pick up? I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and nose and dry cheeks and chin. I have enough hand stuff so I'm looking for more face/body rather than hand stuff.

I'm already way addicted to the lip balm, and am loving the facial cleanser :)

So, our Burt's rep stopped in at work today and I just wanted to alert you to the release of fourteen, count 'em, FOURTEEN new Burt's Bees Products!!!

The most promising ones in my humble opinion: two new styles on shampoos and conditioners, one for very dry hair and one for color treated hair, a peach (or was is apricot?) and willow bark facial scrub (it comes in a tube, no scraping from the bottom of the jar!), Baby Bee all over shampoo/body wash, two new body butters (one with shea butter, one with cocoa butter and macadamia nut), and some new kits including a travel shower kit.

Keep those eyes peeled people, all this stuff should be available now!
