This week at Look Fantastic we are celebrating organic skincare, and to kick things off we have started with Burt’s Bees Skincarewhich has a very special and unique history. The story begins in 1984 when Roxanne Quimby started using left over beewax from Burt Shavit’z honey bees to make candles. Their candles did so well that they decided on introducing their first skincare product – the iconic lip balm!

Soon after, the brand introduced the cuticle cream in 1991, and then in 2006 created 30 skincare products before releasing specialist acne and sensitive skin formulas. The sensitive skin range has been designed with the belief that what you put on your body should be made from the best that nature has to offer. The range is scientifically proven to cleanse and moisturise your skin without causing irritation.

The sensitive range offers five products which are all enriched with softening Cotton Extract to help skin replenish and repair itself, while shielding it from potential irritants and external factors such as harsh soaps or cleansers. The result is beautiful skin which is left soft, supple and hydrated.


Sensitive Facial Cleanser

The Burt’s Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser is a treat for sensitive skin as it gently cleanses away all dirt, oil and impurities, without causing irritation. The formula is effective yet gentle enough to not cause any drying to the skin. Ingredients include the softening Cotton Extract as well as Rice Extract, which help to hydrate and moisturise the skin, while Aloe offers soothing and healing properties. The Facial Cleanser is perfect for daily use and is delicate enough to be used by everyone.

Burt’s Bees Sensitive Eye Cream is beautifully designed for the delicate eye area and can be used to provide much needed moisture without causing redness and irritation.

The eye cream also has the softening Cotton Extract, moisturising Rice Extract and soothing Aloe, as well as White Genepi Extract which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. The formula also consists of Eyebright, which has tannins to help reduce inflammation. Use the eye cream daily to achieve lasting results while giving your skin the care it deserves.

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
