If you are into beauty products, you probably heard or seen Burt's Bees.
I wasn't a Beauty Blogger back then when I shopped for my favorite Burt's Bees products. I can still remember some of my first Burt's Bees purchases....
The Garden Tomato Toner, Hand Salve, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream and Foot Cream. But who could forget my first splurge on a lip balm that really works on my dry lips - yes, it is from Burt's!
So when I received an invite to attend Burt's 30th Birthday, no matter how crazy my schedule was and mind you, my car was coded that day, I knew I had to make it! And I did!
I was greeted with a huge Happy 30th Birthday Sign made from either vegetables, flowers and the big 0 is one huge beeswax! Amazing isn't it? I have to hand it to the Burt's Bees Philippines team for such a wonderful setting! And you haven't seen it all!
Each of us were given a yellow envelope, a jar with our name and I knew there will be fun activities to be unveiled.
Can you spot your favorite Burt's Bees classic?

The cake looks so cute and amazing! This is definitely one eye-catching table centerpiece.
Now back to the reason why we all came together...
It is obvious that in today's world of Beauty, there are so many products available in the market and sometimes, we just had to sit back and think...what is best for me? Which products work best for my skin? Then we had to look back on how simple the beauty regimen of our ancestors. They use all-natural ingredients straight from the source: nature.
And for 30 years, Burt's Bees has been the pioneer for natural skincare. As they say....they use ingredients YOU CAN SPELL.
According to May Samson, the brand has expanded to six skincare lines to cater both men and women's needs. There's the Radiance Line for radiant glow, Daisy White range for more even complexion. Acne Solutions range that naturally zaps those unwanted impurities. The Hydration Line which is formulated with Clary Sage, a plant which is known for its water-retention properties. Sensitive Range, which includes cotton extract to address those with delicate complexion and the Naturally Ageless Line, which uses key ingredient Pomegranate extract that helps create youthful appearance.
And all the while, I thought Burt's Bees skincare are getting out-of-date...I am definitely wrong!
Aside from learning about the Bees that day, we also got to learn about the Beekeeper himself! Do you know that the drawing in every Burt's Bees packaging is a real person? That is Burt Shavitz, a 79-year-old man who embraced his hippie lifestyle despite his success and fame. He is hailed by the New York Times as the World's Most Famous Retired Beekeeper. We were able to watch a short documentary about him and there you see the heart and soul of the brand.
And another highlight during the event was when Liz Lanuzo of www.projectvanity.com headed a short painting workshop! Follow her on Instagram if you want to see her works! This beauty blogger friend of mine is really talented!
I did try my hardest I tell you! Painting on nails is still my forte! *laughs*
I want to congratulate the Burt's Bees Philippines team for bringing us beauty enthusiasts so much joy in learning how to enhance and bring out our natural beauty without the harmful effects of chemicals and hard-to-read ingredients.
