Winter is the time to shift dark spots from your complexion. Editor Trudi Brewer reveals a natural skin brightening cream that does just that.
What is it?
Burt's Bees Brightening Even Skin Tone Moisturizing Cream, $44.
What's in it?
The "star" ingredient in this cream is daisy flower extract, which is the new heavyweight in natural circles for helping to fade dark spots. Along with plant extracts, such as sugar cane and maple syrup, which contain glycolic acid, to help speed up the cell turnover, you can say goodbye to dull skin, and those dreaded brown spots. And while this cream works over time to correct imperfections, it's also packed with antioxidant-rich emollient ingredients, such as olive oil and grape seed oil, so expect instant nourishment as well.
Why do we like it?
Moisturising cream is so subjective. You either like the feel of it, or you don't. I am always being asked what's a great natural face cream that feels luxurious, smells nice, hydrates skin and will provide age erasing clarity - well meet your new BFF. I am hooked on this moisturiser. It feels so nice on my skin, and credit to Burt, for having the brains to package it in an airless pump. This keeps those air-sensitive botanical ingredients stable, and it's great for busy women who travel.
