I am super excited to finally share today’s post with you guys. If you have been following my blog for a while, then you know that I am a huge Burt’s Bees fan. I’ve loved and used the brand for as long as I can remember, and I had to pinch myself when they reached out to me about working together for the very first time. I’ve done countless posts about some of my favorite Burt’s Bees products since and today’s post is not an exception, yet it is a bit different since I’ve had the pleasure of going to their North Carolina headquarters to meet with Burt’s Bees’ team, and get to know some of the latest product launches.
As you may already know that one of the reasons I enjoy traveling so much is because I love discovering new amazing destinations, and the Fearrington House Inn at the Fearrington Village, or as I like to call it, a “home away from home” for the duration of my Burt’s Bees trip, was exactly such a discovery. Picturesque and charming, I fell in love with it the moment I saw it! I also appreciated the fact that the Burt’s Bees team made sure we had plenty of activities to choose from to keep us busy, like biking around the village, hiking, spa treatments, and yoga sessions. Though I will freely admit that I haven’t done quite as much yoga as I should have, Ninel and I took full advantage of the readily available bikes to explore everything Fearrington Village had to offer and must have spent hours riding around, which was definitely one of our favorite parts of the trip!
Speaking of favorites, as you may already know I love Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons, in fact that’s what I wear 90% of the time, day or night. But during this trip, I discovered yet another lip product to love – the new Tinted Lip Oil. What I like about it so much is the fact that it’s super moisturizing and since my lips tend to be on the dry side, I always look for products that keep them looking and feeling hydrated. At the moment, my go-to day shade is Caramel Cloud which I tend to wear on its own since I prefer natural-looking lip color during the day, but for night, I like to layer it over Burt’s Bees lipstick in Nile Nude to create a perfect nude pout which goes oh-so-very-well with a smoky eye makeup I wear at night a lot.
Another discovery – the new Complete Nourishment Facial Oil. Love how versatile this product is — it can be mixed into your moisturizer or used on its own; it’s super hydrating yet not at all greasy. I also like to apply it to the ends of my hair to bring a little shine and health. Another way I like to use this oil is on my hands, specifically cuticles if they get a bit dry.
On the last day of our trip we got to visit the Burt’s Bees headquarters and the lab. I learned a lot about bees over lunch there, and just how much we need and rely on them. The most interesting part was visiting the lab—it’s nothing like the labs we’re used to seeing. Because Burt’s Bees uses natural ingredients, the lab is completely open! While there, we made custom shades of Tinted Lip Balms with the help of one of the scientists, it was such a fun hands-on experience.
Spending a couple of days in North Carolina with Burt’s Bees and getting to know more about the brand and people behind it, made me appreciate my Burt’s Bees products so much more. Thank you Burt’s Bees for having me, it was such a wonderful experience!
Special thank you to Burt’s Bees for partnering with me on this post.
