New from Burt's Bees...

I got the chance to try out the latest product to be released by natural skin care brand Burt's Bees today and I have to say I was nothing less than seriously impressed. I'm already a big fan of the brand (which you may have gathered if you've seen my previous posts about them!) so I had high expectations for their new 24 Hour Body Lotions.


There are four varieties in the new line, all specifically targeted for different types of skin. There's Aloe & Buttermilk for Sensitive Skin, Cocoa & Cupuacu for Dry Skin, Fragrance free with Shea Butter & Vitamin E for all skin types and last but certainly not least (as it's my personal favourite!) Milk & Honey for normal to dry skin.


If you've tried their original Milk & Honey body lotion you'll know that it's not just the scent that is wonderful... I'm not sure what it is but something about the formulation of the Milk & Honey products is cooling on the skin. They both make your skin feel so fresh and soft. I think I prefer the new formulation to the original though, as it's more the consistency of a body butter, rather than a milk so it feels more luxurious to apply.


The new line has been formulated with something called 'Liquid Crystal Technology' (sounds technical!) Which is meant to emulate the state of your skin in order to help the lotion to penetrate and for the nutrients to be more effectively absorbed. I don't know anything about liquid crystals but it certainly leaves your skin feeling baby soft!

The 24 hour moisturization body lotions are available online now (£8.50 incl. delivery at feelunique) and will be in stores from April, priced at £9.99

Any other Burt's fans out there? Any of these new formulas take your fancy?

  5. I would love to love Burts Bee's but I find their products quite expensive and I'm not sure I want to risk spending so much on something I am not sure will work for me. I'd love to perhaps get some trial size stuff but you can only get them in gift sets and they're about £13 a pop!

  7. I love Burts Bees, I've always enjoyed their milk and honey scent.

    And lol @ Liquid Crystal Technology. I love it when companies come up with fancy names to try to make their product sound all advanced and special.

  9. Ooh! I also love the milk and honey line! That sounds so heavenly, I might have to track it down and buy it!

  10. I've never tried this brand before !
    Liquid crystal technology makes sense ! For a "crystal" is easier to penetrate all the layers of the skin.

  12. I LOVE the Milk & Honey Body Lotion! I actually have a small travel size and that I carry in my purse and use it as a hand lotion! It is my favorite so far because it moisturizes my skin without making it greasy! It is the best lotion so far that I've used to do that! It also smells awesome and is FREE of parabens, phtalates, & petrochemicals! I've been using it since October (click here to read my review) and am on my 2nd bottle. Great post! I will look for your other posts and videos on this brand! :)
