I might be one of the founding international fans of Burt’s Bees products, because I’ve been using their products circa graduation—which, as it turns out, is further away than I’d like to admit. 

If you’re looking for great Burt’s Bees products, then I’ve got a list for you. Here are my must-haves:

Best Burt’s Bees Lip Products

Burt’s Bees Chapstick

The Burt’s Bees chapstick (in the original vitamin E and peppermint mixture) is my absolute must-have. Not even a joke, but I haven’t gone a day without it since the seventh grade—which was a long time ago.

As a pre-teen, I had the worst chapped lips ever. I used to use Blistex but never really liked it until one day my mom brought me home one of the old school metal pack of Burt’s Bees lip balm. I was sold the second I put it on.

I’m obsessed with this stuff, I always have two on-hand and a backup shoved in my desk drawer. If you’re looking for a good lip chap, I can’t recommend this stuff enough.

Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer

If you want the same Burt’s Bees chapstick experience, but need a little colour in your life then their shimmers line was built for you.

When it comes to Burt’s Bees lip shimmer, I tend to stick with the lighter pale pinks and neutral. The champagne colour, a beautiful pale pink with a high sheen, is my go-to favourite. But the strawberry (pink) and apricot (more of a neutral beige) are both excellent choices.  

The best thing about shimmer Burt’s Bees products, is that they have the same nourishing components of their regular chapstick. That way you’ll have smooth moisturized lips with a tad bit of colour!

Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon

In the past few years, Burt’s Bees products have added a makeup line. While I haven’t had a chance yet too try everything I have given the Burt’s Bees lip crayon a chance and I love it.

Again, I’m a neutral lip colour fan (I stick with mostly neutral makeup overall) and so I gave the Outback Oasis crayon a try. The tint is just a shade or two away from my natural lip colour so it gives me the perfect natural lip that I’m looking for.

In a Burt’s Bees lip crayon review, I’d definitely point out that much like other Burt’s Bees products, the crayons have the same nourishing quality. So not only does it give great moisture but it looks damn cute!

Best Burt’s Bees Face Products

Burt’s Bees Facial Wipes

Over the past year, I’ve developed the worst oily skin which means that having face wipes around is absolutely necessary. That’s where the Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes comes in. I specifically go with the grapefruit wipes made specifically for normal to oily skin.  

I keep one of these packs on my desk or the bathroom counter (depending on the day) and end up using at least one a day. I used to use closer to three a day, but I recently started using the Dermalogica line and it’s working amazing for me!

The grapefruit wipes are one of the Burt’s Bees products that aren’t quite as “smooth” going on. Compared to other wipes (whether by Burt’s or other lines) these ones tend to be a little more gritty, but it suits my skin perfectly.

Burt’s Bees Face Mask

If you’re a mask fan like me, you absolutely need to give a Burt’s Bees face mask a try. I’ve just discovered these, so so far I’ve only had the opportunity to try the purifying sheet mask a try, but it’s luxurious!

The purifying Burt’s Bees sheet mask has kiwi extract and is great for hydrating your face. I like to use them for my at-home spa nights to give my face a natural refresh!

If you’re looking for more mask Burt’s Bees products, they also have charcoal and hydrating face masks, a rejuvenating eye mask and a moisturizing lip mask.

Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil

A few years ago, before I had gross oily skin I had incredibly dry skin and one of the best Burt’s Bees products for it was the cleansing oil.

The Burt’s Bees cleansing oil is great for normal to dry skin. It cleanses and hydrates your face with its mixture for coconut and argan oils. Remove dirt with this natural cleansing oil and refresh your face!

Burt’s Bees Day Lotion

One of the perfect Burt’s Bees products to start your day with is their day lotion. It has SPF 15 built right in, so not only are you adding moisture to your skin but you’re protecting it from the harsh sun as well.

The Burt’s Bees day lotion is great for normal to combination skin, and while with my oily skin I no longer use it I would highly recommend it. It’s a light moisture that soaks in and hydrates while refreshing you first thing in the morning.

This lightweight face moisturizer is infused with vitamins and won’t clog your pores!

Other Burt’s Bees Products

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream

I have HORRIBLE looking feet. I’m tough on both my shoes and my feet, and that means I need some great moisturizing products to restore them. Enter the Burt’s Bees foot cream, a great lotion to rejuvenate your neglected feet.

Put this Burt’s Bees product on right before you go to bed and let it moisturize your feet while you sleep. You’ll wake up with nourished feet!
