One Month Milestone with Burt's Bees

Hi! It's been a month now since I first started using Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Night Cream, Facial Cleanser and Face Mask. The pros: Super soft skin. Redness banished. I've been using the Night Cream during the day as well and I love the matte finish. It's like using a primer and moisturizer in one - seriously...I no longer use primer. The cons: My wrinkles are still here. They haven't diminished, not even a tiny bit. Despite that, I'm still willing to stick with this product because it makes my skin feel incredible and I have used many different brands over the years and nothing has banished the redness in my skin like Burt's Bees. If I use the Face Mask, I use it at night so that when I wipe it off, I rub what's left into my skin and go to bed. I have not had any problems with these products causing breakouts, either. The end result? I love this line from Burt's Bees. I was never a fan before, but I sure am now! Want to try before you buy? Head over to here to purchase a travel sized cleanser: and here to snag a travel size Intense Hydration Day Lotion! I still have quite a bit left in my magical jar of Night Cream, so I will continue to keep you posted on my progress, despite the campaign ending soon. This is good stuff, so I want to keep bzzing!

Burts Bees Intense Hydration Continues!

It's Friday, 11/2. Here's my update on Burt's Bees Intense Hydration facial cleanser, night cream and mask! I've used the Intense Hydration Treatment Mask twice now. It has a thinner consistency than the night cream. You apply a thick amount on your cleansed face and wait 5-10 minutes, then wipe off with a cloth or tissue. You rub any remainder into your skin. Wow! It's so skin softening that it's just amazing. I love it. The scent is mild, at least to me. I still can't get over the super strong scent of the facial cleanser, but it does such a nice job that I'm overlooking it. It's creamy and it really gets my face clean without stripping it. The night cream is magic in a jar. I wish it was in a tube though since a jar isn't the best option for a treatment cream. I love the way this night cream feels on my skin. I haven't tried the day lotion yet because it's November and the weather has turned cold here. Once it hits spring, I'm definitely going to buy the day lotion. How much do I love these products from Burt's Bees? Enough that I was wishing they had an Intense Hydration line for my body. I thought about buying a jar of the night cream and using that, that's how much I love this line. Then I visited Burt's Bees' website and found that they have a travel size of the cream cleanser and of the day lotion - each only $2. What a GREAT way to try these products! Head on over to to snag these so you can try before you buy! Sometimes Target carries the travel sizes, so the next time you're there, check it out. The website prices for the full size products are a little bit higher than those I've seen in the store, just a little head's up there. While I was at the website, I discovered that there's a new line of body lotion and hand cream for extremely dry skin called "Ultimate Care". I'm going to be looking for that at the store! I love the way these products feel on my skin. The only wish I have is that I wish the facial cream had some sort of treatment. I'm an Olay Total Effects girl and I like that the Total Effects cream helps with a number of concerns. Unfortunately, the Burts Bees line only moisturizes. But oh, what a wonderful experience that is!

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Campaign!!!

On to the Buzz!

 Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Campaign has begun!  In this campaign, I received three full sized products from BzzAgent.  Included were:  Burt's Bees Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser with Clary Sage, Treatment Mask with Clary Sage and Night Cream with Clary Sage.

What is this Clary Sage, you ask?  Burt's Bees tells me that Clary Sage has the exceptional ability to trap and retain moisture.

All products are 99% natural and dermatologist tested.  The products intensely hydrate dry skin and use probiotic technology, which increases collagen renewal and retains moisture.  The products also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The cleanser removes dirt, oil and makeup (and I can vouch for that, it even removed my mascara, but I do not recommend using it on your eyes!).

This is a great campaign and I am really looking forward to seeing the difference Burt's Bees Intense Hydration products make on my dry skin!

Glade Expressions Bzz Campaign

Recently, I was offered the opportunity to try the new Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist and Diffuser Oil by BzzAgent.

The oil diffuser is different.  It doesn't look like a typical oil diffuser.  It blended right in with my bathroom decor.  At first the scent was extremely strong, but now I don't even notice the scent and there's still a lot of oil.  I don't know if the scent wore down or if I'm just used to it now.  I chose Lavender & Juniper Berry and I absolutely love the smell.  It's clean with a little earthiness to it. What's nice is you just have to replace the oil container & the scented board instead of junking the entire piece.

The fragrance mist is different as well.  You squeeze the sides to spray, which takes a bit to get the hang of.  It does not look like an air freshener can, which is really nice, since I can leave it out so it gets used more often!  I chose the Cotton & Italian Mandarin scent, which is fresh and clean, it's a very clear scent.

Another great campaign from BzzAgent!  I love the scents & so does my family.  Thank you, BzzAgent!

Nerf Campaign

My son LOVES Nerf. I just signed up for a new Nerf campaign at BzzAgent! Stay tuned, I'll have all the buzz about Nerf right here!

It's a hit.  It's the Firevision Football and it comes with two goggles (or whatever they're called) that light up green or red and when you wear them and look at the football, prepare to be amazed!

My son and his friends played with this for over an hour before the adults finally couldn't take it any longer and grabbed it for themselves.  It was a HUGE hit at the party we attended and everyone wanted to know more about it!

This is definitely worth getting for your kids.  It got mine outside and active!

New Campaign! Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles

I'm excited that I've been able to join in the Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles campaign on BzzAgent!  From the BzzAgent campaign page, here's a little info about these insoles -

Dr. Scholl's® Massaging Gel™ Insoles provide energizing support and cushioning for men and women on the move. Designed for shoes that fit virtually any lifestyle, these insoles incorporate two types of gel to provide comfort in your shoes and absorb shock all day long.
Tired, achy feet can affect your lower body and may impact your mood, too. Discover all that's possible when foot discomfort isn't slowing you down. Connect with the people you want to see and enjoy the things you want to do — all because of the energy you're feeling from your feet up!
Why they're so good:
  • Double the comfort in your shoes (for people with foot discomfort)
  • Feature a Dual Wave Design™ — soft blue gel cushions and provides superior shock absorption, while firmer purple gel offers added support
  • Can be used in a variety of shoes
  • Belong to a full line of Massaging GelTM foot care solutions
  • Come in men's sizes 8–13 and women's sizes 6–10
  • Sell for a suggested retail price of $12.99
  • Can be found in the foot care aisle of most drugstores, grocery stores, and discount mass retailers
  • Offer a money-back guarantee, so there's no risk in trying them!

I'm excited because my feet hurt every day, so I am really interested in seeing if there is a difference wearing the Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles.

Have you tried these already?  What did you think?  I haven't gotten mine yet, so let me know your opinion!

Here's my update:  I put these in my Converse.  At first they seemed so squishy and comfortable I just couldn't believe I'd never tried these before.  Then I realized that my feet really, really hurt after wearing my Converse, which isn't usually the case.  I removed the inserts and my feet don't hurt anymore.  I think the inserts were too thick for my shoes - I had cut them to perfect size, but because of the thickness of the inserts, my shoes didn't fit the right way anymore.  I definitely kept them, because they're super squishy and I plan on trying them with different shoes.

If your shoes are a little too big, I highly recommend buying a pair of these & putting them in your shoes so that your shoes fit perfectly!

Bzzing about Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream!

Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream


Have you joined BzzAgent yet? Why not? They allow me to try many different products based on my interests and I get to let my friends and family know whether or not I liked them! It's fun to try so many different things for free and I like being able to give my opinion on them. My latest campaign is the Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream. This is the perfect campaign for me, since I hate spending a lot of time with face cream, foundation, etc..

What's a B.B. cream? Well, it's a tinted moisturizer that has some added benefits to it. The beauty mags will tell you to just throw on some tinted moisturizer on the weekends, but they neglect to mention that if you use a drugstore brand, don't waste your money or your time. They just don't have the coverage.

Garnier's B.B. cream has mineral pigments, so you get really great coverage. They also add Vitamin C, to gently fade away your discoloration and smooth out your skin tone. Garnier claims you'll see results in 2 weeks and by 4 weeks you'll see major results. I haven't been using it that long, so I don't know yet.

It doesn't come in a hundred different shades. This makes it easier for me. I chose the Light/Medium, because I'm in between both. It actually works for me. I thought it would be too dark, but it's not. If I were using this in the winter, I would probably switch to Light, but I'm not sure since the Light/Medium is working out so well.

Since this is good for your skin, you can reapply this as often as you want throughout your day. I thought that meant it didn't have staying power, but it does...somewhat. If it's hot and muggy outside, this is going to slide right off your T Zone. I was surprised to find at the end of a long day that I could still see coverage on my cheeks.

It claims to hydrate for 24 hours and it does a really great job on hydration. It does look a little greasy under my eyes and on my chin, so I have to apply powder over it. Which is insane, since my skin is very dry! So I set Garnier's B.B. cream with powder.

It's very lightweight, my skin feels really soft. I would definitely repurchase this and I am recommending it to all of my friends.

I've been noticing BzzAgent, as well as another survey site, haven't been offering me campaigns or products to survey. :(

BzzAgent offered me the opportunity to be in a campaign to track my children's online activities and the invite stated that only those who participated in this campaign would be invited into the Kindle campaign.

KINDLE! Oh yeah you bet I was in. So I signed up, had some major problems with the company, relayed all this to BzzAgent, they were supportive and sympathetic, I continued to plug along with the campaign, continued to Bzz my little stinger off and yet...I was NOT invited into the Kindle campaign.

When I emailed BzzAgent about not being invited, I was told that the current invite was an early invitation, but those who had participated in the internet safety campaign would be invited "soon".

That was months ago and the Kindle campaign is done and over.

I'm disappointed with BzzAgent! Have you noticed you haven't been receiving as many campaigns or products to try? Not as many free sample opportunities as there used to be?
