Sustainable Style: Güd


Last week I was rushing through the aisles of Target, getting some toiletries and cleaning supplies for the home, when I spotted an end cap with some seriously eye-catching products. I literally stopped in my tracks (to the annoyance of the person behind me, who almost slammed me with her cart) to check them out, and was pleasantly surprised when a sign told me this was the latest line of goodies from Burt's Bees, called Güd.


I have been using Burt's lip balm for years, and tried their body washes and shampoos in the past, but wasn't really a fan. So I made a note to look these new ones up when I got home, and here's what I learned: The line contains no parabens, phthalates or petrochemicals; it's not tested on animals (yes!); and it comes in three scents (floral cherrynova™, orange petalooza™ and vanilla flame™). Each scent comes in shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, body butter, body wash, body mist, foaming hand wash and hand cream (i.e., they've got you covered, head to toe).

(Update: Jim from Güd was kind enough to contact me and inform that I missed a fourth scent, carried only at Target. It's called Pearanormal Activity™ and is made with a pear and acai berry fragrance. Sounds splendid!)


I'm excited to give some of these products a try once I run out of what I'm currently using (the Yes To line, which I'm really liking...). I'll be sure and let you know what I think once that happens. In the meantime, have any of you tried this new line? What do you think of it?

  1. How interesting- i saw this line the other day but didn't realize its a burts line. I actually love burts, but just tried the 'tinted' lip balm. I've got to say its really no good at all- a weird consistency, and sort of smudgy. Hopefully the gud line is better!
