Travelers: get rid of sun spots, age spots with Burt's Bees Brightening line

See also

Travelers living life to the hilt are susceptible to those little sun spots/"liver spots"/aging spots that seem to pop up anytime you're out in the fresh air. In the olden days, people were advised to soak in buttermilk and lemon juice. Not convenient! Not necessarily effective!

That's why I was glad to be hosted to experience some products from Burt's Bees new Brightening line. The line still has all the commitment to natural health and beauty that the rest of the company is known for. This is what they say about it:

Burt’s Bees Brightening Line is clinically proven to brighten and even out skin tone,even out skin tone when used as part of a daily regimen over 8 weeks. The Daily Facial Cleanser, Refining Tonic, Moisturizer Cream and Eye Treatment will help diminish discoloration, while the Dark Spot Corrector can be used to target specific areas. Thanks to a unique formulation of White Daisy Extract, known to regulate skin’s melanin production, combined with a multi-fruit complex, the result is a complexion that looks luminous, more even-toned and beautifully soft.

The Brightening Dark Spot Corrector and Brightening Eye Treatment are both sized and packaged to be perfect for a 3-1-1 carry-on travel bag. The eye treatment is in an especially innovative packaging: a rubberized "pencil tip" that you squeeze to precisely target dark areas near the eyes. I found both formulations to be non-irritating, which is not always the case with brightening products.

The eye treatment (a creme-gel) also works on puffiness and wrinkles, so there's no need for additional products. It has been clinically tested to have a 95% success rate.

The spot corrector is a clear fluid that dries immediately -- it won't affect makeup application. It has been tested to have an 80% success rate.

Even if you don't see darkness on your face -- check out your hands! They really show your age with spots.
