The popular body care line Burt’s Bees was created by Burt Shavits and Roxanne Quimby out of Maine in 1984. The company first began selling candles made from beeswax then later grew into creating more all natural products for cleansing, moisturizing, hair care, and skin care. Burt’s Bees prides itself on making products that are not just healthy for people, but also healthy for our environment. The Naturally Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum is claimed to promote a healthier, younger looking skin while at the same time providing a moisturizer and visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Naturally Ageless Skin Firming Night Crème is claimed to firm the skin while you sleep causing any fine lines and wrinkles to diminish, as well as providing hydration. Both of these Burt’s Bees products for fighting lines and wrinkles contain pomegranate, a great anti-oxidant.

Product Details

The Naturally Ageless Intensive Repairing Serum is a concentrated formula that targets the fine lines and wrinkles mainly surrounding the eyes, lips, and on the forehead. This Burt’s Bees product is intended for daily use after cleansing the face. The Naturally Ageless Skin Firming Night Crème is intended to tighten and firm your skin while you sleep. This product claims to hydrate, firm, and prevent environmental damage. The recommended use is to apply after cleansing and toning the face. Both of these Burt’s Bees products contain pomegranate fruit extract, which is a very rich antioxidant that helps protect against harmful environmental damage to the skin such as UVA and UVB rays. Pomegranate also helps strengthen the skin and moisturize it, which visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Good

  • The official website was easy to navigate.
  • Burt’s Bees products contain around 99% all natural “people friendly” as well as environmentalyl friendly ingredients.
  • Burt’s Bees products are easy to find and are affordable.

The Bad

  • There was no guarantee found on the official website.
  • There was no return or refund policy information found on the official website.
  • Even though the majority of Burt’s Bees products are all natural, there is a small amount of sodium borate in some. This ingredient is extremely toxic.
  • Burt’s Bees manufacture many different products, and their general skin care and hair care products are more popular than their anti-aging products.

The Bottom Line

Burt’s Bees products are a much more natural alternative to your skin care needs. These products can be purchased online and in many retail stores. With the affordable prices and wide variety of products to choose from, this is overall a decent purchase. However, the small amount of the toxic component sodium borate in some of the products is questionable. The natural antioxidant pomegranate is claimed to protect your skin as well as tone, firm, and smooth out unwanted lines and wrinkles. The results should not be expected to be dramatic, but rather a slight improvement on fine lines and wrinkles. There are other products out on the market with more effective anti-wrinkle ingredients, but overall this is a good and popular natural skin care line.

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go

    skeptic

    I call bull. Mostly natural is not ‘all-natural’. Doesn’t stop the marketing juggernaut, but if your product is more than 1% ‘fragrance’ and other nonnatural ingredients, then you are NOT selling an all-natural product. Period. No matter how much your marketing and press release corp feeds the feelgood out the door and to the masses of nonthinking buyers.

    Burts is better than a lot of garbage on the market, but there are even better choices and you might only find them in the small companies and individuals that work to make even better products. Read every part of the label — not just what the sheeple claim.

    I agree with skeptic. 99% is not pure enough for my wife’s needs. I went through each ingredient until I came to sodium borate. Surely you can come up with some other replcaement? Or how about ditching the preservative altogether. The product doesn’t have to last 6 years. I would think that 6 months would be more than enough. Nothing burns me more than false marketing. Oh, and Danni BB (the first comment) is obviously on their payroll.

    I can’t help but thinking the guy who actually vote thumb down on a 99% nature product is just being too unrealistic and way way too picky! In any case, the best hope for these hard to satisfy consumers are buying nature herbs/plants/fruits/milk etc. themselve and mix it in a juicer so they can produce 100% fresh/harmless product for daily use.
