I want to start today’s post with a little known fact. Your skin renews itself every 28 days. Starting a new skincare regime is sometimes tough and will make you want to throw in the towel, but I URGE you to wait it out for a full 28 days because that is when you will know exactly what the products you are using are doing for you. Burt’s Bees has a new line called Renewal that works in harmony with your skin’s cycle, and in 28 days you should see firmer, smoother, healthier-looking skin. I decided to take the challenge and will be documenting my journey for the news few weeks!
For my challenge I am going to use the Refining Cleanser and the Firming Serum. My two favorite types of skincare products have always been exfoliating cleansers and serums because I feel like those two specific things back the biggest punches.
Being infused with Hibiscus and Apple Rejuvenating Complex, Burt’s Bees Renewal Refining Cleanser is shown to improve skin’s texture and smoothness. The formula hydrates as it cleanses while also gently exfoliating. Exfoliation is important because it helps remove dead skin cells, dirt, and old makeup. It also preps the skin for the rest of your skincare routine.
Serums are known for being super powerful, and the Burt’s Bees Renewal Intensive Firming Serum doesn’t disappoint. It helps to restore the appearance of your skin’s smooth, firm texture with natural anti aging ingredients.
So let me brace you for my Day 1 selfie. It isn’t pretty. I JUST finished cleansing my skin and applying the serum but you can see some funky texture on my face and a breakout on my cheek. Lots of little issues. I can’t wait to see the next few updates. I have faith in Burt’s Bees so I am looking forward to the next few selfie updates!
You should TOTALLY go through this challenge with me. I picked these products up at Walmart, and you can too. My Walmart has a large section dedicated to all things Burt’s Bees so everything was extremely easy to find. There is actually a $3.00 off coupon that you can use to pick up the products of your choice! There is also a pretty cool sweepstakes that goes along with the challenge so check that out too!
So tell me in the comments below: What part of your skincare routine do you find most important?
