Drugstore Beauty Brand Review: Burt’s Bees

Cult beauty brand Burt’s Bees launched in South Africa in 2019 with their nourishing lip balms and hand and foot creams quickly becoming a beauty hero favourite. Founded in the 1980’s – Burt’s Bees core focus has always been to respect nature whilst creating all-natural beauty products.


Burt’s Bees Lip Balm – R75

A multitude of flavors to choose from, like the sweet tropical flavor – mango, Burt’s Bees conditioning lip balms are a must have in your chapstick collection.

Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream – R125

This is an ultra-conditioning cuticle cream which nourishes dry, brittle nails and cuticles – perfect for dry hands. I personally love to massage this cuticle cream all over my hands before bedtime and wake up to supple, hydrated looking hands which is helpful with all the hand sanitizer usage. 


Burt’s Bees is that beauty brand that gets you excited about beauty all over again as you experiment with their 100% natural based products, furthermore their products are paraben, petrolatum, sulphate and chemical free.

This is the perfect beauty brand fit for you if:

  • you are into natural formulations for beauty
  • skincare is a priority over makeup
  • have dry skin that requires nourishing ingredients

Burt’s bees recyclable packaging is easily recognizable with yellow being the loud and bright brand colour. 

Where To Purchase Burt’s Bees:

Burt’s Bees is available online at Takealot and at Dischem stores.

My Recommendations:

  • Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer In Plum R99 – 00

Nourish your lips while you add color; this luminescent shimmer has a tingling sensation with Shea butter for that enriched gleam. There are eleven shades in this lip line but my favourite especially for Autumn is “Plum”. 

  • Burt’s Bees Almond & Milk Hand Cream R179 – 00

The aromatics of this hand cream is just darling! Additionally, it’s ultra-hydrating and perfect to carry around with you for regular moisturization without that greasy feeling.


  • Affordable & long-lasting products (a little goes a long way)
  • 100% Natural ingredients
  • No animal testing
  • Recyclable packaging
  • Dermatologically tested


  • The Burt’s Bees product line is limited in South Africa (but hopefully we’ll see variety introduced in South Africa over time)


Overall, Burt’s Bees is the supreme brand for lip balms with conditioning, clean, non – toxic formulas across their full product range. Clean beauty is a trend that Burt’s Bees has been ahead of for years. Their products work immediately and over long-term use, benefits of hydrated, healthier looking skin is evident due to no harmful, synthetic ingredients.
