Burt’s Bees Radiance Lotion: $8.99

On Friday, I had a hot dinner date with my husband. It was his birthday and I was treating him to dinner at Alinea. For those of you who are into food, you know this a restaurant the caliber Chez Panisse or French Laundry – worthy of ditching my usual jeans and slipping into a dress.

I bought a sassy new dress for the occasion, but as I looked down at legs that hadn’t seen the light of day in a while, I knew I needed some help. In desperation, I went on an excavation mission in the bathroom to unearth a miracle beauty product. At the bottom of one of my “product baskets,” there it was: Burt’s Bees Radiance Lotion.

I had forgotten about this wonderful lotion. As I slathered it on, I noticed, immediately, that my skin looked healthier and the tone was more even. And a wee bit shimmery. Not I’m-a-teenager-on-a-glitter-binge shimmery, but just enough to make the gams seem a little “dressed up,” if you will.

Why the heck was it in the bottom of the bin?! Well, the consistency is much thinner than normal lotion and it has mica in it, which accounts for the subtle shimmer I noticed. Not your every day lotion, but for a special occasion, yowza! Definitely recommended.
