I had the pleasure of trying a couple items from the ybf line. FIRST – the Perfectly Polished Lipgloss Trio. I looooooooooove the fact that this comes in a pack of three! For the price of what you would normally pay for 1 lipstick – you’re going to get 3 instead!

Lips say it all and a natural nude lip is lovely for that “girl next door” look but now it’s time to reach out and grab a hold of a little chic sheen and glamorized gleam! These luxurious lip glosses are never sticky, since they are ultra-silky with their “lacking in tacky” texture. Your Best Friend hopes you have fun with these easy-to-use, glide on glosses that lend your lips some serious softness mixed with the perfect amount of gorgeous color!

What if Branches could Beatbox?

Burt’s Bees knows what nature has in store for the best skin & hair on Earth. And when it comes to the Earth, they have infinite respect and gratitude for all that she has to offer. It’s the reason they compost, plant gardens, turn out the lights, and help save bees.

Every ingredient, every product launch, every tube, bottle and cap is a conversation about how to do the right thing. It’s their business model and they call it The Greater Good. As you can imagine, Earth Day is kind of their high holiday.

So, this Earth Day, Burt’s Bees collaborated with composer/genius Diego Stocco, creator of “Bassoforte”, to create a one-of-a-kind, all-natural musical experience. All the sounds in this piece were created real-time using instruments provided by Mother Nature herself. The same ingredients that are instrumental in making the Burt’s Bees products you love—Honey, rice, almonds, flowers, and more. It’s a reminder to take a few minutes on Earth Day or any other day to pause, reflect, and maybe even shake some branches or tail feathers. You know, celebrate this amazing planet we share.

Celebrate Earth Day and try out a new eco-friendly beauty product. I just added Burt’s Bees Towelettes to my shopping list I can’t believe I haven’t tried them yet. This time of year we are out and about enjoying the outdoors I like to have something in my purse to freshen up and keep my skin clean and clear.
