  1. I love Burt's Bees. In the US, it has really established itself as a household brand; everybody has at least one item from Burt's Bees, even if they don't know they have it! Lol. Well, at least that's how it seems anyway. :-)

    1. Yes, I realized that in the US is well established, growing brand here in Europe!

  2. I love them as well, I didn't know about the acne line! I will try it as I have a case of adult acne. :( I try using all natural products when I can. Neutogena has a new line of all natural products that are pretty good.

    1. Good to deliver info to people who needs it!
