Thanks everyone and look for a new Burt's Bees giveaway soon!

If you have a lip balm addiction (like I do), then you are certain to have heard of Burt's Bees. Their beeswax lip balm is a staple at ecochick HQ, with a tube in the car, in the kitchen drawer, in the bedside table and in the handbag. It keeps my lips from drying out in a harsh Canadian winter, and it smells divine - almost like minty vanilla. But did you know there is actually a Burt? And he keeps bees? Who'da thunk it?

Burt's Bees has a wide range of products derived from natural ingredients including beeswax. They have several lines including a natural remedies line, a facial care line targeted to skin types, a robust line of baby care products, and plenty, plenty more.

And here's the fun part. I have a Burt's Bees School Survival Kit to give away - wheee! This awesome little kit contains sample sizes of Peppermint Shower soap, Citrus Facial Scrub, Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme, Doctor Burt's Herbal Blemish Stick, Milk and Honey Body Lotion, and of course a tube of their beeswax lip balm. I'm kind of wondering why I chose to give this one away, actually. It's that awesome. So enter the giveaway before I change my mind. :) Simply leave me a note in the comments telling me what your favourite Burt's Bees product is. The winner will be drawn randomly on Friday, October 10, so check back and see if you're a winner!

And of course - all Burt's Bees products can be purchased on their website or at a store near you.

I haven't used a lot of their stuff on myself, but used all the baby stuff for my son. My favorite, by far is the diaper rash cream. Maybe I got lucky, maybe I compulsively changed diapers, or maybe it was this amazing cream but my son NEVER got a bad rash, the slightest tinge of red would get the diaper cream right away and it never went past that. If he had a little red mark on his face, diaper cream again...enter the compulsive part.
Hook me up, so I can try some of their stuff on myself :)

I've never used this stuff before, but I'd bet my fave would be the lip balm. Minty vanilla sounds great!

I have two loves! Their diaper rash cream is the Bees Knees...pun totally intended! I've even used it on my skin irritations, and it's awesome!
I also love the lip balm, because I have this bad habit of chewing my lips, and this stuff manages to soothe my subsequent chapped lips every time.

Great contest, BTW! :)

I luuuurve the lip shimmers. I don't use lipstick anymore, only these. Sheer glossy colour and the yummy tingly Burt's Bee lip balm kick.

tinkerpuppet said...

I haven't tried their products on myself yet, but I love the whole Baby Bees line for my sons. I would love to try out some of their stuff for me!

Who knew Burt was a real guy- it's all made so much cooler now, having read that story!

I love all of it, but I have to say that I'm a sucker for the peppermint soap.

Awesome contest!

I love so many of Burt's Bees products, but my fave is definitely the Burt's Beeswax Lip balm. I am completely addicted! I have one in my purse, on by my bedside and one at work!
If I had a second choice it would be the coconut foot cream! :)
