Renewing My Skin With Burt’s Bees & The End Of A Challenge


I’ve come to the end of my Burt’s Bees 28 Day Renewal Challenge and I’m ready to tell you all about it.

When I started the challenge, I immediately fell hard for the Renewal Refining Cleanser because it is so exfoliating.  It has awesome little bits in it that are just the right texture for scrubbing.  Not too rough, but enough to feel like you are getting the skin nice and scrubby clean.

My second most favorite thing about the line is the scent.  I’m a big scent girl, and Burt’s Bees got it spot on with the scent of their Renewal line.  I think it smells earthy with a bit of floral & hint of fruit. Really it smells like nature and health and that is exactly how I would explain how it made my skin feel–super healthy and natural!

After 28 days, I would say my skin is soft, glowy and the lines in my forehead have diminished some.  I especially like the ‘dewy’ type look the products give.  When I see glowy, dewy skin, I see health. That is all I ask for–healthy looking skin!


I was able to stick to my 28 day challenge by doing these 3 things:

1. A cute container.

Keeping my products all together in a cute container in my bathroom was key. They were out in the open on a shelf to remind me to cleanse, within reach and ready -to- grab and get cleaning!

2. Soft, clean wash cloths.

Having a stack of soft, clean wash cloths right next to my products was the perfect way to keep me faithful in my face washing! It reminded me of being in a nice hotel.  There are always clean, white wash cloths ready to use in nice hotels, and I don’t know about you, but in a hotel it is almost a pleasure to wash up and take care of my skin.  Having them stacked and ready to use at home gave me that same feeling.

3. Hydrating.

I know so much beauty comes from within, both from our spirits and from what we put into our bodies.  I made sure I hydrated well during the 28 Day Renewal Challenge, filling my water bottle often with lemon water and also making my favorite smoothies for an extra nutritious treat.

Now that it is the end of the challenge, I will continue the journey and use the products.  I have no complaints about the Renewal line, and I still have a TON of product left, which is really exciting as I have already been using it faithfully for almost a month.  I’m impressed with how concentrated the products are, especially the Renewal Firming Night Cream, so you really don’t have to use very much.  A little goes a long ways!
