Buzzed on skin care 

Taking care of your skin doesn’t get much earth-friendlier than this. Burt’s Bees, a New England maker of all-natural skin and body care products, keeps it real with essential oils, pure beeswax, herbs and extracts. Hands roughened by gardening? Burt’s Bees Hand Salve promises to be your best friend. And for about $6, this is one luxury you can afford. The rich, sweet-smelling salve is made of almond oil, olive oil, beeswax, vitamin E and herbal extracts to heal and protect hands from the elements and dryness the natural way.

In addition to using recycled and reusable packaging, Burt wouldn’t think of putting petroleum jelly, mineral oil, propylene glycol or any other chemical fillers into his line of products. These include a light Bay Rum cologne, rich Almond Milk Beeswax hand cream, Lemon Grass insect lotion, Farmer’s Friend porch incense, Wings of Love natural lipstick in a full line of shades, and lots of other good, wholesome stuff. Find out about the history and philosophy behind Burt’s Bees at www.burtsbees.com. Buy the products at www.drugstore.com and other retailers. Norene Cashen pays attention here every other week.
