Winter in Colorado can be down right brutal. The wind in the valley blows constantly don’t even get me started on the temperatures. Last year we had 16 days in a row that we didn’t even see zero on the thermometer. That’s 16 days of below zero temps and I don’t just mean 1 below zero…I’m talking 20 below zero. With winters like this a girl has to have a few tricks up her sleeve to keeping her skin soft and healthy. Not only do I have to fight the wind and temperatures to keep my skin healthy, my oldest son and I combat horrible eczema.
This winter I plan to combat all these factors that are against me with several pieces from the Burt’s Bees Natural Products line available at Walmart. My local Walmart has a decent selection of Burts Bees with a dedication space for the adult creams, lotions, lip balms and more. Most Walmarts also offer an infant section which has valuable products for your young ones. We enjoy the Baby Bee® Fragrance Free Lotion for our boys when we get to a location that carries it.
My Burt’s Bees Winter Essentials For Healthy Skin
Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream – Formulated with Chamomile and Aloe to gently soften skin and a hint of Menthol known for its cooling and soothing properties.
Garden Tomato Toner – This is probably my favorite product ever! I use this every night with a piece of bandage gauze (because it’s super soft). Infused with a blend of Tomato, Cucumber and Parsley Extracts, this natural facial toner removes lingering traces of cleanser and any trapped dirt, oil and make-up and helps to tighten pores.
Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleansing Towelettes – I love having towelettes on hand when I’m cleaning my face in a hurry because there is no rinsing. Specially crafted for normal to oily skin, our invigorating pink grapefruit towelettes cleanse away pore-clogging dirt, oil, and even makeup, for naturally clean skin with no heavy residue—and no rinsing.
Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub – Quality scrubs really help add glow to my skin midway through the winter. Not only does this Cranberry & Pomegranate Sugar Scrub smell amazing it really helps to slough off the dead skin bringing fresh healthy skin forward.
Milk & Honey Body Lotion – A quality moisturizer is so important! It needs used daily and I enjoy this one daily. It has a subtle scent and keeps me moisturized all day and night. Designed to soften your skin, this delectable combination is clinically proven to moisturize for up to 24 hours. And if that’s not enough, the non-greasy formula absorbs quickly so you can sit back and enjoy the 100% natural fragrance.
Honey & Bilberry Foot Cream – Keeping our feet healthy is important. A good moisturizer ensures a mini foot massage every day which aids in circulation and keeps cracks away. The older I get the more likely I am to get cracks when I don’t keep up with a good foot cream. Bilberry Extract, a natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid, helps exfoliate dry skin and soften calluses as Honey, Jojoba Butter and Rosemary Extract lovingly help replenish moisture. Not just for flip flop season!
Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit – Rarely will you find me without some type of Lip Balm within easy reach. Pink Grapefruit is one of my favorite scents and this Refreshing Lip Balm with Pink Grapefruit never lets me down. Find one by my bedside, in my purse, in the drink holder of the Tahoe and in my make-up draw. This juicy lip balm is made with nutritious, tropical Pink Grapefruit Seed Oil, bursting with powerful vitamins.
Hand Salve A Farmer’s Best Friend – This is a product I purchased sometime ago based mostly off of it’s name (I’m a sucker for anything farmer). Since that time it’s become a staple for my husband and I when our skin is really bad. Brimming with botanical oils, herbs and Beeswax, your hard-working hands can finally find sweet relief.
I trust products from Burt’s Bees because their products are natural and are free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and petrochemicals. As Burt Bees is celebrating their 30th anniversary and striving to continue to bring me quality products I know I can trust them. 30 years is something to brag about and you know they don’t cut corners when they have been in business that long. I’m a Colorado girl born and bred and I know that quality skin care products like Burt’s Bees go a long way in keeping my skin from becoming dry and cracked.
