fall beauty essentials
This post is sponsored by Burt’s Bees®, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
I can’t tell ya’ll how excited I am for it to be fall. While it is still hot down here in the desert valley, it is definitely cooling down on our nearby mountains. Leaves are changing and the air has the nicest cool breeze to it. With every new season comes new routines, including beauty and this changing air calls for more moisture. Moisture loss is typical as the weather crisps, so give your skin a little extra hydration this season with Burt’s Bees®!
Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of bonding with my daughter. I know the tween years can be a bit trying (attitude x100) but there are a lot of upsides too. For one, we have so much in common all of a sudden like interest in beauty products. I’ve loved sharing my finds with her and teaching her the importance of a skin care routine. Recently we took a girls trip up the mountain to Idyllwild, which is where we run to when we need a blast of fall weather.
We definitely did not forget our favorite hydrating Burt’s Bees® products, which are:
I am a huge Burt’s Bees® fan. I really cannot remember a time when I didn’t own a yellow tube of magical lip balm! I love that they have since expanded their product range to include so many other essentials. New for fall is Burt’s Bees® Hand Cream in two awesome scents: Orange Blossom & Pistachio and Lavender & Honey.
This ultra moisturizing cream nourishes hands all day. I apply it after my shower in the morning while my skin is still soft from the heat. The cream really sinks in and my hands stay soft all day. For extra-blustery days, I’d recommend carrying the hand cream in your purse and reapplying as needed.
Burt’s Bees® Hand Cream contains powerful shea butter that goes on smoothly and leaves behind a silky feel. This hand cream isn’t greasy at all, it just disappears into your skin. I really couldn’t love it anymore! We’ve got more than hands to cover this fall though!
The fall is a notoriously busy season full of travel. This type of year calls for easy and quick cleansing – towelettes will be your BFF. Burt’s Bees® Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes with Cotton Extract are perfect for dry, seasonal skin. Cotton extract, along with rice and aloe add the moisture your skin needs. The wipes remove dirt, oil and makeup with an easy few swipes. These are amazing on the go or at home after a long, busy day.
My skin naturally tends to be on the dry side, so I know my facial moisturizers! Since my skin is rather dry, it is also sensitive and many lotions irritate my skin. Burt’s Bees® Intense Hydration Lotion is a new favorite of mine, an essential for the cooler days ahead. It not only hydrates dry skin, but also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This lotion contains the amazing Clary Sage and provides instant and long-lasting hydration for up to 24 hours, leaving my skin looking soft and healthy.
After cleansing your skin at night, you have a huge opportunity to hydrate. While you sleep, let a heavy hitter night cream sink into your skin. I like Burt’s Bees® Intense Hydration Night Cream, which also contains Clary Sage. This 99% natural nightly wrinkle cream moisturizer, is clinically shown to help improve your skin’s ability to retain moisture while you sleep. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while moisturizing dry, fall skin.
When you have a few spare minutes, treat yourself to a hydrating sheet mask. I like to do these on Sunday nights after washing my face for the evening. Burt’s Bees® Hydrating Sheet Masks are infused with Clary Sage to instantly moisturize and balance your skin’s pH while improving texture. They are super refreshing, fun to do with friends (or your daughter) and they leave my skin feeling super smooth and supple.
Who’s ready to nourish their skin this fall? I have always loved Burt’s Bees® because it is a brand I can trust. Their products are formulated without parabens and phthalates. Something else that is really important to me as a vegan is this that brand does not test their products on animals.
All of these products are available at Target in a special end-cap from 9/16 – 11/3.
