My Skincare Routine with Burt’s Bees & Grove Collaborative

Do you change your beauty + skincare routine with the seasons? I don’t always get too, but I sure try! 

During the summer, I use fewer products and spend less time prepping for any event. In fact, I don’t even wear makeup unless I know there will be photos taken!

So for me, it’s all about fuss-free natural products that can multi-task.

That’s why I’m in love with this Personal Care Set from Grove Collaborative. Grab your free set of Burt’s Bees cleansing towelettes + lip crayon + body lotion + Grove Collaborative hand cream with your first order of $20. Click this link here! 

Then take a peek at my tips for fresh, flawless summer skin:

  • Sunscreen: I’m a sunscreen devotee. I use sunscreen year round, I use a daily moisturizer with SPF. I love my Burt’s Bees Skin Nourishment Day Lotion that has SPF 15, I receive it from Grove Collaborative.
  • Cleansing towelettes: Sunscreen + sweat can leave you feeling a little greasy by the end of the day. I don’t always get to grab a shower in the evening, so I grab one of these Burt’s Bees towelettes and wipe off my sunscreen & greasy face when I only one free hand. No rinsing needed!
  • Gloss lip crayon: As I mentioned, I don’t like to wear lots of makeup in the summer, nor do I have the time with two kids to put effort into my looks. Instead, I swipe on this Burt’s Bees gloss lip crayon in Pacific Coast. It gives just the right amount of bright berry color and keeps my lips comfortable and I look put together.
  • Body lotion: Summer body lotion should be light, but also super moisturizing since all that time in the pool and playing outside with the kids can leave your skin parched. Slather on your Burt’s Bees body lotion, which is made with nourishing baobab oil! I use this all year long.
  • Hand cream: I spend lots of time washing dishes, playing with my kids and during the summer months and I feel my hands appear to be drier.  This Grove Collaborative hand cream helps heal my cracked dry hands. I also love the way it smells. The citrus scent reminds me of what Summer should smell like. 
  • Water: My motto this summer is hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. To avoid plastic water bottles, I keep a couple of my bkr bottles chilled in the fridge to make my life easier when on the go!
  • Snacks: During the summer I like to keep fresh fruit in the house, to make our snacking healthy and fresh. I cut up the fruit and place it reusable containers, in small portion sizes, so my family can grab it and go!
  • Bonus tip: Since it is so hot outside, I order all my household staples like Seventh Generation Diapers, Seventh Generation laundry detergent, and Method cleaning products from Grove Collaborative. They ship the best natural products (carbon offset) right to your doorstep, on your schedule.

My Final Box of Style Review

Today is the first day of Spring! What a great day to order your own Spring edition Box of Style! I’m giving you details below on why this is the best box I have received, during my year of subscriptions. While on vacation with my girls during spring break, my final box of style was delivered. I couldn’t wait to get home to rip it open and check out everything included.

This past Saturday, I finally had enough energy to open my spring Box of Style. (Traveling with a newborn and tween, is another blog!) I knew what was included in the box but there is something about seeing it all in person, that makes you happy! Unboxing the Box of Style is rather fun though, since each item is individually wrapped in tissue paper.

I think my favorite piece in this collection is the Tribe Alive custom carryall bag, the print is gorgeous for spring and will take me into summer as well. Being a mom of two girls, it is important for me to have a durable bag along with a bag that is big enough to carry all their stuff too! I look forward to using this for a couple seasons. Another one of my favorite items this season, is the BKR glass and silicone water bottle, I can never have enough water bottles! We live in Southern Arizona, I find it essential to stay hydrated and what better way to do that than with an adorable reusable water bottle?

The spring Box of Style also included a few items I have never used before or wouldn’t buy myself, yet I’m looking forward to trying them out.  I have never heard of Rice Enzyme Powder, but I received a full size of it by Tatcha. It states it is to exfoliate my skin, perfect for spring! (We shall see). I also received a bottle of Butter London nail polish, I have never used this brand and I’m looking forward to trying it out. The color is that of a soft pink almost, perfect for spring! I also received a scarf in the spring Box of Style, I live in Southern Arizona, this isn’t really practical to wear out and about this time of year, so I will be attaching it to my new Tribe Alive bag or my Christmas/Push present I was gifted, from my husband! 

As a member of Box of Style, I was given the option to choose the color of earrings I want or to be surprised. Since these are a bit out of my normal style, I thought I would get crazy and let them choose for me. I received gold and I’m excited to try them out both ways, either as a stud or with the hoop! 

This season’s box also included a sponsored item, which is a Stella Artois Chalice. Stella and water.org partnered together, to promote the awareness of safe clean water. Every limited edition chalice sold helps provide 5 years of clean water for 1 person in the developing world. (I’ve seen Matt Damon’s commercial talking about this too!)

I also received a special gift, for being a subscription member for a year too! This, however, was my last box of style in my subscription. Looking back, I have received several items I loved and several I didn’t care for this past year. I’m 31 years old and a mother of two girls, my style is simple and not flashy. I have enjoyed the perks of receiving trendy seasonal items and trying (and falling in love with) new items.

If you are looking to spoil yourself and want to be on trend each season, then the Box of Style annual subscription is so for you! If you just want to test out one box before you commit to a year, you will enjoy 1 seasonal box of your choice with trending items, worth well over $400 in each box you can purchase just 1 box at a time.
