Hanukkah started at sundown last night. My family is nonreligious, but we light candles every year on Hanukkah in the hope that in the year to come the world will find more enlightenment.
In honor of Hanukkah, I’d like to suggest these eight skin care products that are good all year round. I won’t link to specific stores, because you can find these products just about everywhere these days. I’ve chosen Burt’s Bees, not only because I’ve used many of these products and like them, but because honey often plays a part in Hanukkah meals.
Burt’s Bees Hand Salve–contains almost identical ingredients as pricey tattoo creams, and works just as well (personal experience speaking, here).
Burt’s Bees Vitamin E Body and Bath Oil–if you take baths, this stuff is great. Only down side is that it is indeed oil and you’ll have to be sure to wash the tub afterwards. Smells great.
Burt’s Bees Milk & Honey Body Lotion–smells sort of like honey, and does a good job of moisturizing.
Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Soap–haven’t tried this one myself, but have it on good authority that it’s good stuff. 🙂
Burt’s Bees Rosewater & Glycerin Toner–this is for “sensitive and mature skin” and it feels very soothing. I don’t happen to like the scent of roses, but if you do, this is for you.
Burt’s Bees Honey & Shea Butter Body Butter–they’re not kidding when they call it “butter.” It’s a very thick, solid cream that takes a while to rub in, but makes your skin feel great.
Burt’s Bees Milk & Shea Butter Body Wash–this stuff works great in the shower, I’ve found, and it’s an easy way to moisturize your whole body.
Burt’s Bees Carrot Nutritive Day Cream–really works wonders on dry skin, and smells nice, too.
If you have any skin care products you’re especially fond of, please tell us about them in the comments.
