Keep your skin feeling gud this winter!

Burt’s Bees, a pioneer and leader in natural personal care for over 25 years, is inviting a new audience to discover the benefits of natural with a new brand: güd—natural beauty re-imagined for the millennial woman.

I got my hands on the gud Vanilla Flame Body Butter – and I’m SOLD!!! Holy cow this stuff is amazing. Melts like buttah! (Couldn’t help myself) I don’t know about you, but my skin feels so dry and scratchy during the winter. I feel like no matter what I put on my skin – it just drinks it right up immediately! This beautiful butter really helps combat those cold winter days. I’m in love with the stuff – and I think you will be to!

As interest in natural continues to grow*, the consumer profile is also shifting. In addition to those already committed to the natural lifestyle, there are a growing number of women who are younger, new to the category, very social and living life through their senses. The current natural landscape may not meet their needs or sensibilities—too pricey, too “crunchy,” or not sensorial enough.

On a mission to make natural personal care available to everyone, everywhere, Burt’s Bees saw an opportunity to create a new breed of natural.  One that trades the standard “earthy” aesthetic for a more contemporary, vibrant feel, without pretentions and without skimping on standards.

Enter güd—a bright, happy, expertly-fragranced natural personal care collection without parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals or sodium lauryl sulfate. With 97% natural ingredients and accessible price points, the collection offers a robust natural formula with the sensory appeal of a specialty collection.

The collection includes a total of thirty-two SKU’s spanning hair care, body care and hand care (eight product forms) in four unique fragrance variants—Orange Petalooza™, Floral Cherrynova™, Vanilla Flame™ and Pearanormal Activity™. Burt’s Bees worked with a leading fragrance developer to create four fresh, complex, and universally appealing scents that mash-up the traditional floral, citrus, fruit and gourmand categories.

Peachy but not preachy, güd challenges the conventional beauty mantra with a refreshing perspective—that being happy makes women beautiful, not the other way around. This philosophy is evidenced in the bright, joyful appearance of the collection—from the smile built into the brand name (take a second look at the umlaut) to the vibrant colors and design of the packaging and its playful tone of voice.

Best part is, it’s only $12! Check it out!

Check out Davines Authentic Replenishing Butter!

More and more often I’m finding hair products that allow you to apply them to your hair before you even step into the shower. I really like this idea, because who has 10-15 minutes to spare waiting INSIDE the shower while your deep-conditioner goes to work? (Please tell me I’m not the only one…)

Introducing 100% Pure products!

100% products are truly 100% Pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.

100% Pure products are 100% animal-cruelty FREE!

We love animals and refuse to support anything that hurts animals which is why none of our formulas are ever tested on animals (everything we use is food grade and does not require testing, whereas chemical ingredients must be tested). All our makeup brushes are from synthetic fibers. No animals were hurt for their fur and no animals were hurt for any of our ingredients (the only animal ingredient we use is cruelty free honey).

Their products are naturally fragranced!

Perfumes and fragrances are synthetic chemicals that do not have any medicinal or aroma therapeutic value. 100% Pure products smell delicious because what you smell is real. The wonderful aromas in 100% Pure products are from real fruits, pure essential oils, and pure absolutes. There are never any synthetic fragrances or anything artificial in 100% Pure products.

100% Pure’s products are based on antioxidants!

Every moment, we are slowly deteriorating. Free radicals such as the sun, smog, smoke, cigarettes, etc. attack us, causing aging, wrinkles, and cancer. ONLY Antioxidants protect us, fighting off the damaging free radicals. Sun block is important because it blocks up to 80% of UV rays, but sun blocks DO NOT protect against other free radicals. Your skin needs antioxidants for sun protection and protection against all damaging free radicals.

What does 100% Pure mean?

There are many toxic chemicals in cosmetic products that have been clinically proven to cause cancer, tumors, irritation and many different skin disorders. 100% Pure products are truly 100% Pure. That means there are no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins. Truly health food for your skin.

I’ve been able to get my hands on a couple products, and I absolutely love them! I’m shocked how full of fragrance they are, and naturally! I love the body wash. It’s thin, so you’ll want a sponge – but you won’t be sorry. It smells and feels heavenly!
