Kracie Natululu Natural Skin Conditioner*

I received these awesome “skin conditioners” a few days ago from Kracie* in the Rice Extract and Yuzu (Citrus) Extract variants. I don’t usually get too excited about body products, and I left these alone for a while until I saw them again on Liz’s Instagram. This moisture-rich skin conditioner/lotion comes in the form of a watery liquid that hydrates the skin without the greasy feeling. It’s also got a plant-based Ceramide Mixture that nourishes the skin. At first, the thought of the texture put me off—I thought it was going to be similar to body oil—but this is straight up liquid that gets absorbed into the skin fairly quickly. Which makes me love it because it’s hard to wait for lotion to dry before going out in this heat. Really pretty much the best summer companion! The Kracie Natululu Skin Conditioners* are allergy-tested, fragrance-free, less acidic, coloring-free, mineral oil-free. What’s awesome about it, too, is that it can be used for the face. I usually use a face oil, but if I want something …

Burt’s Bees for your Body, Hands & Feet

Here are some of the items I received from Burt’s Bees’ 30th birthday celebration. Funnily enough, I didn’t get any of the skin care lines (by this, I mean the face ranges), but it made me realize how much I’d been neglecting the rest of my skin. My invite to the Burt’s Bees event actually came with their Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and I’ve been slathering that on my cuticles pretty liberally. Needless to say, it’s been a welcome addition to my desk distractions. 🙂 As for the rest of the items, here’s what I got and some first impressions.

Happy 30th, Burt’s Bees!

Some time last week, I was invited to Seda Hotel to celebrate Burt’s Bees 30th birthday! Burt’s Bees started from really humble beginnings, made by a man named Burt Shavitz—the actual person on the Burt’s Bees tin cans!—and a woman named Patricia Quimby. Burt was raising bees for honey, when he met Patricia, who found a way to use all the unused bee byproducts and crafted them into the products we now still see on shelves today. The ‘0’ is made of beeswax and the sign was spelled out with ingredients they use to make Burt’s Bees products. As you might have noticed, if you’re an ol’ regular here, I’ve been steering my beauty interests into a more natural and green direction. Burt’s Bees is a very accessible brand if you’re looking to go for cleaner ingredients. They like saying that their products are made from “ingredients you can spell.” I know they’re known for their lip care items, but they actually have great body care and skin care ranges.
