Get Red Ruby Groovy with gud!

The wonderful people at gud from Burt's Bees have come up with yet another utterly intoxicating scent, Red Ruby Groovy! It combines the scent of fresh ripe grapefruits with wild thyme, to make a scent that is unique, bright, and irresistible. 

You can get this luscious scent, 4 different ways:

Natural Nourishing Shampoo (pictured above) – is a gentle shampoo that cleanses hair naturally, leaving it super-shiny and ultra-touchable. It’s like washing your hair in a sunny rain. Other than the smell (which is most definitely spectacular and a huge draw all on its own) and the fact that it is all natural, there is nothing particularly out of the ordinary about this shampoo. It cleans the scalp and hair well enough, but not any more than any other shampoos. BUT, the scent is out of this world AND it is all natural, so it does have some perks that other shampoos can't offer. I love that I feel completely safe and comfortable using it on my young daughters (although it really smells SO GOOD that I don't really want to; I'm kinda stingy with it). The shampoo pairs well with the conditioner and if you are looking to be more natural with your products, it is an affordable buy and a way to be natural without losing a sense of luxury.

Natural Softening Conditioner (pictured above)Hair loves its naturally moisturizing botanicals. You’ll love its zingy scent of grapefruit and wild thyme. It’s love at first conditioning.The smell is utterly delightful! The conditioner is smooth and creamy and you kind of feel good using it because it's Burt's Bees, you know? It provided enough slip to detangle my hair while wet, but it was really the smell that won me over. As a conditioner it performed well, but like the shampoo, it wasn't particularly outstanding.

Natural Body Lotion (pictured above) –  Natural moisturizers lavish you with the scent of grapefruit and wild thyme leaving skin wonderfully moisturized. Feel soft and smell groovy! This was sort of the star of the bunch for me! Not only does it smell divine, it is richly moisturizing without being heavy or greasy. I could easily use this concoction daily without getting tired of it and would continually be impressed with the results!

Natural Body Wash – A citrusy start to your day, this natural body wash is scented with grapefruit, but also wild time – for a little wild-card factor. Cuz you’re a sweetie, not a sugar-coated sappy. This is the one product in this scent that I have yet to try. I have, however, tried (and reviewed) the Pearanormal Activity version, as well as the Orange Petalooza scent, so I feel confident in highly recommending this one as well!

Until next time...


  1. I like gud products. I haven't yet seen the newest scents near me. My favorite is the Vanilla Flame (Vanilla & rice milk)

  2. This is soooo tempting. But I need to finish what I alreasy have... or I will be out of space :D

  3. Those all sound great. I haven't seen them around here yet but hopefully Canada will get them someday.

  4. I've been eyeing this at the store..might have to buy some now! I really like your blog and I'm a new subscriber via the beauty blog coalition! Can't wait to read more!
