Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick

June 13, 2010

Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($9, 0.26oz) contains 10 effective natural herbal ingredients including willowbark, nature’s version of salicylic acid, which clarifies and gently exfoliates skin to clear pores and help prevent breakouts. “Combined with tea tree and juniper oils, known for their antiseptic and astringent qualities, and calendula to reduce inflammation and redness, this concentrated formula keeps your skin clear, naturally.” To use,  apply the blemish stick directly to the affected areas 2 to 3 times daily.  Do not apply more because additional applications may irritate your skin due to the formula’s potent botanical ingredients. The effective ingredient is tea tree oil which is best know for its antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Recommendation: If you’re looking for a product with natural ingredients you’ll like this. It is not too expensive and you will see results when used a few times a day. If you can also get over the strong smell give this a try but I prefer Origins Spot Remover.

Take your pick of an old-fashioned yellow tin or a recycled plastic tube. Apply balm liberally to your lips as often as needed, particularly in dry, cold or windy conditions.”

Recommendation: If you like tingly sensations on your lip from lip balm and natural products you will like this lip balm. The only downside is it does not feel very moisturizing (but does moisturize!) as the bees wax makes the lip feel a little tacky.
