There’s nothing worse than tired, dull-looking skin. It’s often the result of stress or not enough sleep and leaves you feeling (and looking) overall just blah. In these situations I usually find myself desperately trying to find a makeup solution to add that glow and hide redness or dark circles, and it never quite does the trick.
Luckily, there’s a new solution to help bring our skin back to life... Burt's Bees' new Brightening Face Care Line. The line includes five products that have been clinically proven to brighten and even out skin tone: a Dark Spot Corrector, a Daily Facial Cleanser, an Even-Tone Moisturizing Cream, an Eye Treatment and a Refining Tonic. The entire Burt’s Bees Brightening Face Care Line is made with a unique formulation of White Daisy Extract, which is known to regulate skin’s melanin production, and a multi-fruit complex to bring out the best of your skin; you can think of it as Nature’s Retoucher.
To put Burt’s Bees' new Brightening Face Care Line to the test, I’ve introduced the products to my daily beauty regimen, starting with the Brightening Daily Facial Cleanser, which works hard to remove dirt, oil and makeup (a must in my book). After washing my face I swipe a bit of the Brightening Refining Tonic over my face using a cotton round to remove any lingering traces of dirt, oil or makeup and make sure I’m starting or ending the day with a clean, fresh face. Unlike many other tonics or astringents I’ve tried in the past, the Burt’s Bees Brightening Refining Tonic doesn’t have a strong alcohol smell or leave my face feeling tight and dry. After I’ve made sure my face is completely clean, I put a thin layer of the Dark Spot Corrector over my entire face to help reduce the appearance of redness and spots, followed by the Even-Tone Moisturizing Cream to hydrate my face and even out my skin tone. Finally, I use a few dabs of the Eye Treatment under my eyes and the arch of my eyebrows to brighten up my eye area.
And the results? So far so good. I’ve already found myself relying less on my foundation and concealer, and can’t wait to see the full results over time. The products have been clinically proven to brighten and even out skin tone when used daily over eight weeks with 80 percent of women seeing a diminished appearance of dark spots and discoloration from the Burt’s Bees Brightening Dark Spot Corrector. Bring on the luminous, beautifully soft and even-toned skin.
