Winter Beautifiers that Translate Well into Spring.

By Laura Medina

Burt’s Bees Sheer Body Lotion $10,default,sc.html

This former East Coaster may be based in sunny yet parched L.A., but still thinking about fellow East Coasters stuck in the long throes of never-ending snow storms.  You all are caught in the lion's tail of Winter.  Might as well pamper your skin when getting it ready for Spring...when it does come.

Burt's Bees' new Sheer Body Lotions are ideal for transiting from Winter to Spring to Summer because regardless whether it's dry indoor heating or sunny and dry, these new spray-on lotions give you a light coating of lotion where you need it the most and they absorb real quickly into the skin. No excess grease to stain your clothing or noticeable streaks on your skin.  

Because Burt’s Bees Sheer Body Lotions are spritzers of lotion, a light spray of lotion, they make good leave-in hair conditioners, immediately after the shower to lock in moisture or a mid-day spritz to soothe dry ends.  This scribe likes the classically Victorian floral-New Age fruity aroma of Violet & Mango Sheer Body Lotion, good from head to toe.

Finally, Burt's Bees classic stick of a lip balm is now a gooey, yummy balm-gloss in a squeezable tube.   You can layer it on top of your lipstick for extra moisture or mix it in with your loose powder minerals to craft your own opaque colored lip balm-gloss.
