Happy 30th Birthday Burt's Bees!

For over 30 years, Burt's Bees has been the pioneer for natural skincare and boasts of a simple yet powerful heritage: all natural ingredients straight from the source: nature.

I was recently invited to celebrate Burt's Bees 30th Birthday together with other lifestyle and beauty bloggers at the Seda Hotel in Bonifacio Global City.   


At the day of the event, we made a bee line to pick-up a mason jar with our handwritten names, filled it up with water, added our favorite sliced fruits and mixed the right amount of natural honey for a health water infused drink.  On our seats we had our favorite Burt's Bees product (my favorite is Burt's Bees classic lip balm), a special Burt's Bees notebook with the classics on the cover and a yellow envelope which contained watercolor paper and Prang watercolor paint with brush.  I got excited when I saw the art materials, I've always wanted to learn the basics on the art of watercolor painting but never really had the guts to start.

May Samson, Brand Manager for Burt's Bees Philippines shared with us the three pillars the brand is built on:

The bees - Their helpers from the hive.  Burt's Bees does not stray away from the way they do things back in 1984, everything is still sustainable and cruelty free and they still operate on the vision of The Greater Good - good for you, good for the brand and good for the environment.

The Beekeeper - Hailed by the New York Times as "the world's most famous retired beekeeper", 79-year-old Burt Shavitz still lives today and is still living a hippie lifestyle despite his success and fame.

Ingredients we can spell - Each Burt's Bees product has natural ingredients in their classic beauty products e.g. tomato for their Garden Tomato Toner, chamomile for their Chamomile Facial Cleanser and orange for their Orange Essence Facial cleanser.


We also had a basic watercolor session with the talented Liz Lanuzo of Project Vanity.  
How I wish we had more time, it was both a relaxing and enjoyable activity.
