Burt’s Bees Radiance is formulated with ultra-nourishing royal jelly to leave your skin soft and glowing. We’re giving one lucky reader five products from the line so they can look radiant and feel confident all summer long. 

Burt’s Bees co-founder, Burts Shavitz passed away last week at the age of 80. “We remember him as a wild-bearded and free-spirited Maine man, a beekeeper, a wisecracker, a lover of golden retrievers, a reverent observer of nature, and the kind of face that smiles back at us from our Hand Salve,” the company said in statement.

Before moving to Maine to become a beekeeper, Shavitz was a photojournalist in NYC who documented the civil rights moment, beat poets and artists throughout the 1960s. So how does one go from being a photojournalist to a beekeeper with a beloved beauty brand? In 2013 The Daily Beast explained,

“In 1970, Burt threw his mattress in his Volkswagen van and, along with a few buddies, drove upstate to the High Falls, New York, area. After a series of heavy rainstorms, Burt decided to drive around and survey the damage. He stumbled upon a swarm of bees on a fencepost.

” ‘The year before, a guy that I’d been buying honey from, who was a beekeeper, had given me everything I needed to be a beekeeper except the bees — a hive, a mask, gloves, a smoker, a hive tool, everything,’ Burt recalls. ‘So, there was this fencepost, and I said, “My lord, this is an act of God! I can’t turn this down.’ “

In 1984 Shavitz, whose beekeeping skills and roadside honey stand had become well known in High Falls, met artist Roxanne Quimby. Together they started making candles out of Burt’s unused beeswax, from there Burt’s Bees was born!

To celebrate Burt’s legacy, we’re gifting one reader with five products from the brand’s Radiant line. Scroll down to see everything all the products we’re putting up for grabs and to find out how to enter.

    I admire the confidence of my mom. She has always been so strong with working and raising two girls. She never complained about being too tired to come home from work and taking care of us girls. She gave me the strength that I needed to take on the world on my own.

    I admire the confidence that Mother Teresa had in God and Humanity. She helped so many tiny babies and fought for life. She fought for the unborn and that of the very poorest in the world. I hope people gain from her example and share what they have. She may not be alive, but her example lives on.

    I admire my son’s confidence. When he was little he was so painfully shy. Always hiding behind me, or crying if people were trying to approach him. Now he’s 27, a manager full of confidence and vigor. Love seeing his passion and drive come alive <3
