The ladies of the Certified Fabulous team are forever looking for ways to fight the unstoppable Father Time. No matter what our budgets are, we deserve skin care products that are going to fight that fight with us! The Certified Fabulous team has found some great products that will do just that.

Burt's Bees will always be a go to brand for many of us and we are happy to say the Intensive Firming Serum and Smoothing Eye Cream did not disappoint. Both come in a durable plastic bottle that can travel with you anywhere you go. The Hibiscus and Apple Rejuvenating Complex are clinically shown to reduce the look of deep wrinkles and help improve firmness by hydrating your skin and plumping the skin cells to minimize the appearance of all fine lines. My very favorite benefit of the smoothing eye cream is how instantly it helped reduce the dark circles under my eyes! After 8 weeks of use, over 86% of women said that they noticed a reduction in deep lines, wrinkles, and under eye discoloring and puffiness. Both are a very smooth, light cream that blend into your skin nicely for only $20 each.

Another brand the team tends to get excited about is Clairvoyant Beauty. They have an amazing Hydrating Roses Cream face moisturizer and Rosewater Eye Cream. These creams have a very light rose scent that makes me want to bathe myself in it. The duo is rich in Vitamin B3 and instantly hydrates and softens your eyes and face. The eye cream is very smooth and has a refreshing cooling effect that feels amazing as soon as it is applied. The face cream is also very soft and fairly light weight making it a perfect moisturizer for year round use. These can be purchased together as an amazing gift set for just $25 or purchased in larger jars at $38 for the face moisturizer and $30 for the eye cream. Both are a good bang for your buck.

  • mary kay semi matte lipstick pink moonstone certified fabulous cate mcnabb lipstick guava burts bees lip crayonI love, love, love trying new lipstick. I’m particular about my lipstick, but I still try different kinds, always searching for the next best thing. A good price point always helps. So when I had three to try this month, I was quite excited. Each one is very different in its own right, so they make great comparisons.

    Mary-Kay Semi-Matte Lipstick - Pink Moonstone

    I like matte lipsticks, but some tend to be a bit drying. So when I saw this semi-matte in pink rose, I was intrigued. Andddd I love it! It goes on smoothly with consistent & rich color. It is a tad bit creamier than a matte lipstick, but does not appear glossy or shiny (has a slight sheen due the creamy finish). This is one of my new favorites! It’s a nice shade for fall and is the perfect finish for many outfits!

    Cate Mcnabb Lipstick in Guava

    This matte lipstick is also a nice rich, warm tone for fall and a great day shade: wear to work, cocktails and even weekend adventures. With a true matte lipstick, I prefer to exfoliate my lips before. I simply use a little sugar and olive oil and wait a few minutes before applying the lipstick. This leaves a moisturized, even surface so the matte looks smooth and polished

    Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon Sedona Sands


    This lip crayon provides lightweight moisture and creamy matte color for every day. This is a great option to keep in your purse when your lips need a little pick-me-up. The formula is infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil leaving your lips soft and smooth. The Sedona Sands provides just that touch of color for a pretty, light pink.

Last week Burt’s Bees was thrilled to steer the makeup look of Steven Alan’s fashion show.

Steven Alan’s shared vision of natural beauty was the perfect complement to Burt’s Bees notion that nature is the original color expert. The likeminded brands agreed that the collection was best paired with a natural makeup look that placed full emphasis on the color of the lip.

The look was inspired by the brilliant, rich color of our lips during youth. “To bring this concept to life, I began by matching the shades of the new Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon collection to the tone of the models’ natural lip color,” said Burt’s Bees lead makeup artist Katey Denno. “The Lip Crayons deliver vivid color, great payoff and extreme moisture – all with a matte finish – so I used them to build coverage and restore the youthful hue of the models’ lips.”

Burt’s Bees - Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub

I love Burt’s Bees their products are 100% natural and feel great.

Burts bees honey and shea sugar scrubThis fabulous sugar scrub is a wonderful blend of oil, honey and sugar. I applied a small amount of scrub into my palms and gently rubbed it to the rough areas on my skin. Taking special attention to my heels and feet, which seem to get very dry.

The scrub felt wonderful removing all of the dead skin it was like polishing my skin. The scent of the honey and feel of the shea butter was fabulous.

Spring is here! Well, weather wise, almost. And that means your skincare routine is shifting to better suit your needs! We want to reveal brighter, luminous skin to match our bright spring moods! As you're looking to transition your skincare, you ought to consider Burt's Bees Brightening Line. For brighter, more even toned skin, this line uses a "unique formulation of White Daisy Extract, known to regulate skin’s melanin production, combined with a multi-fruit complex." Sounds perfect for skin right? And the White Daisy and refreshing scent will get you in the right frame of mind for Spring. 

I have been using three products from this line: Burt's Bees Brightening Refining Tonic, Burt's Bees Brightening Even-tone Moisturizing Cream, and Burt's Bees Brightening Eye Treatment

Burts Bees 3.25.14

After using my daily cleanser, I then apply the Burt's Bees Brightening Refining Tonic (98.9% natural). This tonic, like most toners, removes excess dirt and makeup left on your skin even after cleansing. This tonic also helps improve surface dullness of your skin for a brighter, more even toned complexion. If you're hesitant to shift some of the products in your skincare routine, this refining tonic is a great way to add in brightening benefits with one simple step. 

If you're in the market for a new spring moisturizer, Burt's Bees Brightening Even-tone Moisturizing Cream (99.0% natural) is worth a try. After using your toner, apply this moisturizer to help even your skin tone and help diminish the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. I like that this moisturizer has a light luminous finish which instantly brightens my complexion. It also has a very refreshing fragrance. This product is definitely moisturizing and takes a few minutes to absorb completely. I prefer to use it as a night cream, which works very well for my skin.

Burt’s Bees is the coolest company ever. Started by single mom, and Maine native Roxanne Quimby in 1984, this company has grown immensely over the past 30 years. Using Burt Shavit’s leftover beeswax, the two worked together to grow one of the most environmentally friendly companies ever. In 2012, as an interest in natural products continues to grow, the company Gud was born out of Burt’s Bees continuing desire to bring naturally wonderful products to consumers in a mass market retain setting.

With 97% natural ingredients and accessible price points, güd: Mango Moonbreeze Natural Body Lotion is a wonderful product for those of us seeking a natural product, at an affordable price. Mango Moonbreeze Natural Body Lotion contains natural AND organic ingredients.Made with natural shea butter, sunflower seed oil, and organic hyssopus,  officinalis extract, black walnut leaf extract, melissa officinalis leaf extract, rosa canina fruit extract, raspberry leaf extract, this product has a really nice ingredient list. This lotion is formulated without parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals and sodium lauryl sulfate, and is never tested on animals, making this a really great drug-store find. Retailing at $7.00, this is one amazing lotion.

güd: Mango Moonbreeze Natural Body Lotion comes in a large 8oz tube. This thick white cream is so moisturizing, it immediately absorbed into my dry, parched skin leaving my body soft and smooth. The fragrance is sweet and fresh, and not too strong. I would love to layer the body wash under the scent of this lotion, it is so pleasant. I have always used and loved Burt’s Bees, and now I am thrilled that I can get a beautifully fragranced, moisturizing lotion at a great price!!
