^ yes, Burts Bees is a great line. I like the plain old minty lip balm, its nice.
And here is a really informative link for you ladies that like to keep your skin looking nice and glowy. (It's sort of a preoccupation of mine). The site is Dr Hauschka, an amazing all organic skin care line that I'd highly recommend.. but this is called "7 Facts that Will Change Your Skin" and it taught me quite a bit:
I use the Quince Day Cream, which rocks, btw... also their toner and Cleansing Cream are awesome.
Also, this is definitely a great source of info (wonderful skincare line too):
You should always read the labels and be aware of what is in any product you put on your skin. The amount of chemicals women absorb into their bloodstream via lotions, cleansers, makeup, etc is really horrifying and while it may not have any adverse affects immediately, these chemicals are building up in your system and causing potential problems. There are even a lot more that this site doesn't list. Off the top of my head, I know that DMDM Hydantoin breaks down in your body as formaldehyde. It's pretty scary to think about, imo....
I'm not trying to plug either one of these products, I have no financial interest in doing so, I just like to pass along what I think is useful info to other ladies who like to keep their skin looking nice. However they can be a bit pricey, so if anyone else is interested I can recommend a less expensive brand that works great too.
Remember, there is no organization like the FDA has for food or medications which stringently regulates cosmetics/beauty products. There are a lot of ingredients that are still used in US products which have been banned by countries in Europe due to the potentially harmful chemicals/carcinogens... it really is quite frightening.
So, anyhow... hope my ramblings have at least made a few more people aware of what they put on their skin, hair/scalp, etc.
