A few years ago I went to a wedding of friends that was held on the grounds of a hilltop mansion that was lushly landscaped and heavily wooded. My sister and I had been using Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion for Sensitive Skin of all Ages as our body lotion, which gives a nice scent without being overpowering – which was great for our friend’s wedding, since the garden was so fragrant there that no perfume would particularly stand out. We noticed towards the sunset that every one else at the wedding was getting eaten alive by mosquitoes, and we didn’t get bit once. We couldn’t quite figure it out, but then I read that bugs hate Rosemary Leaf extract, an ingredient in Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Buttermilk Lotion. What’s really amazing is that you can’t smell the Rosemary Oil at all – but time and again, it’s kept me bug bite free without smelling like bug repellent.
In addition to the very impressive bug repellent properties, it makes skin smooth as could be – use it for a couple of days and you’ll have a nice glow to your skin (why I originally used it for the wedding).
And like all Burt’s Bees products, the ingredient list is easy to understand – no chemicals you have never heard of. And of course, we have our pollinating friends to thank for some of it’s ingredients – including the wonderful Sunflower Seed Oil that works a miracle on skin!
