BzzAgent and Burt’s Bees

A few years ago, I became a BzzAgent.  It is pretty cool site that lets you try and test lots of new and upcoming brands, and you also get samples and giveaways sometimes to give to friends/coworkers/family.  I have done a few campaigns for them, and their goal is to get people talking about the products, good old word of mouth advertising.

I have belonged to many a survey/freebie/etc. site, and what I love most about them is that they really target their members.  I have only once been invited to a campaign that I wasn’t instantly excited about.

On an unrelated note, about 2 years ago, I finally admitted that I was a lip balm addict.  I did some research and came upon a theory that all of the petroleum products used in lip balms, while soothing in the short term, was drying our lips in the long term.  I also realized that whatever we put on our lips is essentially like eating it, and who wants to eat petroleum, ick.

So I started trying out various different types of petroleum free products, and pretty much instantly fell in love with Burt’s Bees tinted lip balms.  They have the smooth texture of my favorite lip balm, with a nice tint.

And now, two of my favorite things have become one, BzzAgent invited me to a Burt’s Bees campaign.  It’s not for the lip balms, but for the sensitive skin facial products.  I got my kit in the mail, with a cleanser, moisturizer, and a bunch of mini moisturizer packets to give away.

I haven’t tried it yet (busy busy) but if it’s anything like the other Burt’s Bees products I have, my face is in for a treat.  I will post my findings soon J
