Burt’s Bees challenged me to take the 28-Day Skin Care Challenge using their new all-natural line of Renewal Face Care products. At this point in my life, I’m all about products that promise results! So I was very excited to get started!
First off, I can’t believe it has already been 28 days! Time flies…especially during the summer! I guess what I’m saying is that this challenge was especially “challenging” because during most of it I was traveling around the country promoting my new book “One Good Life.” :-) The fact that I was able to stick with it throughout all the craziness is the first indication of how much I ended up loving these products!
Here are my other observations after 28 days……..
Now that I’m in my 50’s, skincare is very important to me. I’m beginning to see signs of aging that I haven’t seen before and I definitely want my skin to look the best that it can. While I know I’m going to have wrinkles as a natural result of aging, my biggest concern with my skin is texture.
The Burt’s Bees Renewal Face Care line is clinically shown to smooth skin, improve firmness and reduce the look of wrinkles in just 28 days. Why 4 weeks? Well…every 28 days, your skin renews itself and this line of products works in harmony with that cycle. That made a lot of sense to me. I also was interested in the challenge because I have used many of Burt’s Bees other products and love their all-natural approach to caring for your body.
The products I used for 28 days included the Renewal Refining Cleanser, Renewal Firming Day Lotion w/SPF 30, Renewal Intensive Firming Serum, Renewal Smoothing Eye Cream, and the Renewal Firming Night Cream. You can read more about these individual products in my first post about My 28-Day Skin Care Challenge.
My overall experience with the skin care line has been a very positive one! I began noticing a difference in my skin after about a week of using the products. At first I noticed my skin felt smoother and softer, and with continued use, I began to see the texture of my skin improve as well. The overall appearance of my skin looks more fresh and hydrated.
If I had to pick my FAVORITE product out of the 5 it would have to be the Intensive Firming Serum!
First off, I love the way it’s packaged with a dropper. It’s a more hygienic way to get just the right amount every time. I also loved how light it feels on my skin, and how it absorbs very quickly. The whole line smells great too! I’m all about the smell!
Since using it I have definitely noticed diminishing of fine lines and wrinkles and my skin feels firmer overall. I have also noticed that my foundation looks better lately and I attribute that to this lovely serum!
I’m not sure just how evident it is in this “before & after” photo, but after the 28 days, I can definitely say that my skin feels softer, smoother, and more hydrated!
The 28-Day Challenge was also good for me in a rather unexpected way…it was a good motivation to spend a few minutes EVERY DAY caring for my skin! I ain’t gettin’ any younger and it’s long past time I made daily skin CARE a true habit! It’s definitely a habit I plan to stick with!
Other skin care tips I recommend (and try to remind myself about) are:
Drinking six to eight glasses of water a day is beyond important for your skin—hydration starts from the inside out. Hate plain water? Take a cue from Emma Watson and chug coconut water, which is naturally sweet and chock-full o’ nutrients.
GET ENOUGH REST
Do whatever you can to get in seven to eight hours a night and your skin will look noticeably better. Sleep offers the kind of results that no face product can mimic.
A good workout doesn’t just burn calories, it also helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to your skin. Your skin will thank you!
SNACK ON ALMONDS
Munching on almonds will help give you super skin. The naturally sweet nut is a good source of omega-3s (“good fats”) and vitamin E, two things that keep your skin cells plump and healthy.
Nothing is more beautiful on you than your lovely smile!
I’m going to continuing using the Burt’s Bees products, I really have enjoyed using them and found them to be effective. Plus, with their mission to make people’s lives better, and their commitment to sustainability, it’s a company I can get behind.
