Beekeeper Burt made candles from beeswax. Experimenting, he made a lip balm with bees wax and this turned out to be a big succes.It was the beginning of what would later become an extensive range of skincare products.
“ With PROBIOTIC TECHNOLOGY, hydrates dry and mature skin, helps diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.”
The brand’s philosophy: if you nurture your body with the good things offered by nature, the same goes for our skin. The right mixture of good ingredients takes care of our skin, and brings it back into BALANCE.
Seems logic, doesn’t it?
I discovered the brand by chance. Burt’s Bees sounded so cute, so I bought a few products to try.

“ PROBIOTIC TECHNOLOGY “ is popular these days. After the succes of Yakult probiotic drink, the cosmetics industry got interrested in this type of ingredients. They are supposed to RE-BALANCE skin.
STRONG POINTS: gentle yet effective, lovely smell of oranges.
WEAK POINTS: be careful if you are allergic to essential oils. It’s perfectly fine for me.
How to use: I would say, wet your hands first. It does’n lather (thank god !), but it’s a bit “thick”. Morning and/or evening. Second cleanser in the evening : first remove make-up with oil/balm.
SKIN TYPE: ALL. For sure!
Available: I bought mine at Holland and Barret (NL/BE).
