Looking at the area around my desk at the moment, I can count 7 lip balms, a handful of body and hand creams and a nail polish or five. But there are a few products that stand out, my Burt’s Bees Hand Slave, Hand Lotion, Cuticle Cream and Lip Balm – all of which are essential to have around.
Why are these products desk (and handbag) essential? Let’s come back to that in a little bit and let me tell you a little more about why honey is such an amazing ingredient in skincare products. Put simply, it’s because raw honey is an antibacterial and is packed full of all the antioxidants that make for an amazing moisturiser. Lucky for us, the power of beeswax has been utilised in many of Burt’s Bees products already, so our skin, lips and cuticles can stay in perfectly moist condition all year round.
With that in mind, is it just a coincidence that Burt (yes, he’s a real man, still alive and living in his farm in Maine, USA) was a beekeeper who sold his honey and beeswax at markets and road-side stalls, expanding into beeswax candles and then eventually moving into lip balms and other skin care products? Not really. All the best discoveries happen naturally after all.
Why we love all the Burt’s Bees Classics products:
Dry lips are never sexy, and this handy product keeps our lips soft and kissable all day long.
Like dry lips, dry hands aren’t sexy either. But more importantly, people tend to neglect their hands when they thing about anti-ageing or age prevention. Keeping your skin moist and protected from every day wear and tear as well as pollution is very important. With beeswax being a natural emulsifier and helping to seal in moisture, what better product to have lying around than Burt’s Bees Hand Salve?
Like we said above, old looking hands are not a pretty sight. And no matter how much you spend on a bottle of nail polish, dry and flaky cuticles are not pretty either. When we’re sitting at our desk procrastinating, we procrastinate by putting some Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and our nails thank us.
I love the idea of Alice in Wonderland – entering a mysterious and fascinating world that you have never known before. This is why I love learning more about the stories behind brands and people, and how they have come to where they are today. Someone whose story I find endearing is the one about Burt’s Bees, why? Because his brand was an evolution, learn more about the Burt’s Bees story on their Facebook page now.
