Burt’s Bees produce a wide range of skincare products that are produced from natural ingredients that are cruelty free. This is the main reason why I chose to trial their products, and since I have purchased many of their different skincare products from their range. I am always happy and know that I can trust their range to deliver good results whilst being kind to my skin. I always take good care of my skin and like to apply moisturising products to keep it in good condition.
I always apply a rich moisturiser after showering, especially in the evening before retiring. When browsing the range of Burt’s Bees products I noticed the Radiance body lotion and was intrigued. Whilst this is a moisturising product it also produces a natural glow to the skin. This is perfect for the warmer months when you want your skin to illuminate and look radiant. I was more than happy to pay £9.99 for a 175ml tube, as I knew it would be money spent well. This may seem expensive, but once you have tried their products you will realise that they are actually good value for money.
The tube is sat on its flip top lid. The material of the tube is thin and pliable, much more so than most other tubes that can often irritate when trying to use up the dregs of the bottle. Only a gentle squeeze is needed to produce a small globule of product onto the hand. The lotion is white and creamy and rather thin in consistency which makes it easy to smooth over the skin, and this means it also goes a long way.
The luxurious lotion is infused with mica which is a light reflecting mineral that produces a natural shimmer. Smoothing the lotion over the skin is effortless and a small amount certainly goes a long way. Only a thin layer is needed to cover the skin to moisturise and provide a shimmery appearance. It is quite surprising that only a small amount is needed, adding any more doesn’t make the product shimmer any more. The effect is the same no matter how much product is applied, so it offers good value, as the tube is going to last a good amount of time.
The lotion is produced using royal jelly which is incredibly nourishing, and it is also packed with natural oils and infused with mica. It needs to be massaged gently into the skin as you would with a regular body lotion. It can be used all over, and is especially good to use on areas of skin that are going to be exposed to give a soft shimmer. I tend to apply it to my arms, upper body and legs, though I do continue to massage it over the rest of my skin before dressing. The lotion is light, and clothes can be put on straight after application.
The lotion has a smooth texture and the mica isn’t evident or gritty on application, however, once applied you can see the beautiful natural shimmery glow upon the skin. It is subtle, yet it looks amazing. It leaves the skin looking healthy and glowing and is perfect to give a healthy natural look. It is no different from wearing a regular lotion, apart from the fact that it has a wonderful shimmery effect. It doesn’t wear off or mark clothes and it remains on the skin for duration of the day until you wash. If worn overnight there is no worry, as it won’t harm the bedding, and it doesn’t make a mess.
This is a gorgeous product that I adore, as it leaves my skin looking luminous. It feels light on application and leaves my skin feeling smooth. The mica is infused within the lotion so it gives even coverage and makes it easy to apply. It gives a natural look that is very pretty. This has to be one of my favourite products to use during the warmer months, as it looks amazing on the skin and the tube lasts really well.
