Burt’s Bees Tinted Moisturiser  

Winter dryness getting you down? Our skin can become extremely dry and blotchy throughout the holiday season and usually we are stuck between covering it up with makeup, but at the same time, not wanting to irritate it more – this is the perfect product if this dilemma sounds familiar. Burt’s Bees tinted moisturiser is the lightweight alternative to a heavy foundation, which will also keep you moisturised all day long, enriched with antioxidants and vitamins.
