WFMW: Burt's Bees

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

It is Works for Me Wednesday, and in an effort to beat the winter beauty doldrums, do you know what works for me?

Actually, the best way to beat the winter beauty doldrums is to take a trip to Tahiti, but since that isn't in the cards right now (ha!), I'm going with the next best thing - cosmetics! Now, I'm not one of those girls who goes giddy over facial products. No one has ever complimented my skin, and I certainly do not look like this:

But like most women, I do enjoy and appreciate a certain beauty routine. I want to look and feel nice. Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub is helping me do just that. I discovered the scrub online, via amazon, and have since learned that it is hard to find in stores. It was a random choice for me, but here is the verdict:

Love It.

It smells great, makes my skin feel super soft, and how is this for value: I purchased it in October, and it is still going strong. I use it almost every day, and the jar is half full. It only takes a tiny dab to work the magic.

Natural, inexpensive, and useful. I like that.
Do you have a favorite beauty product?
Or an extra seat on a flight to Tahiti?
How do you beat the winter beauty doldrums?

P.S. I am laughing out loud at the idea that Burt's Bees would compensate me for this post. Uhmmm, no. This is just me talking. But if someone from Burt's Bees happens to read this (hello? hello?) and wants to send me some samples, that would be fantastic. Happy Wednesday!

  1. I have not heard of this scrub. I need a facial scrub in the winter and I use St Ives apricot scrub.

    But if I had to choose, I would head to Tahiti in a heartbeat. We are getting a snow storm today.

  2. I love Burt's Bees, but I haven't tried this. I love the citrus Arbone (sp?) scrub!

  3. i love burts bees, too--especially the smell of their baby line. mmmmm.

    i used to do oatmeal masks/scrubs. just water (or milk), oats, leave on to dry and scrub off. i haven't tried that in a while, but you've inspired me:)
