I originally bought my Mum this set for Mother's Day. To be honest, it was one of those moments of 'haven't got a clue what to buy here, I'll get her smellies'. Needless to say, she absolutely adored this set and asked for more Burt's products for Christmas! Of course, being the amazing daughter that I am ( :-) ) I went out and bought myself a pack to see what the fuss was about!
So what's included:
Soap Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream 20g
This is deep cleansing cream that made my skin feel fresh and nourished. It works well and moving dirt and make up, whilst still feeling natural and not too chemically. It doesn't foam like many other cleansing creams, but use a little with a warm flannel and your face will feel revitalised and refreshed. The fragrance is quite strong, but still incredibly natural.
Hand Salve 8.5g
Perfect for weather beaten hands, this hand salve (intensive moisturiser) soothes hands whilst moisturises. I'm out in all weathers walking my dogs, so after a few days of cold weather my hands resemble sandpaper. After using the hand salve for 3-5 days I have beautifully soft, moisturised hands again. The salve does make my hands feel slightly greasy after using, but seeing as there are natural oils in this product I am not surprised, and nor does it bother me!
Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion 25g
The consistency of this lotion is more like a thick milk than a traditional moisturising cream. It's not so thin that it wants to run off your hands though! It absorbs quickly into skin without feeling greasy and has the natural fragrances that you come to expect form Burt's Bees products. I personally find that it smells more like coconut and reminds me of being on holiday, although I'm not sure what milk and honey would smell like together (perhaps of coconut!).
Beeswax Lip Balm 4.25g
Ah, lip balm. A staple in any woman's handbag, purse, bedside table, car... This lip balm conditions, softens and smooths even the driest lips without leaving them feeling like they have too much product on. The fragrance is of peppermint which makes your lips feel revitalised and fresh. It is also great as a conditioning base for lipstick too!
Coconut Foot Cream 20g
My husband loving calls me 'chicken feet'. Take from that as you will, but I am unfortunately one of those people that whatever I do to my feet, they always have dry bits on them. Taking this into account, this foot cream is lovely, and a love slathering my feet in it after a bath and sticking a pair of socks on in order to maximise the moisturising opportunity. Yes, it does work but I think I would have to see a foot specialist to sort out my chicken feet. With a lovely coconut fragrance, like all of the products in this set a little goes a long way.
Would I recommend this set? Of course. I think it's a fab little set to get a loved one or even as a treat for yourself. The sizes in this set are all sampler/ travel sizes, so you almost get to try before you buy and see which products you love or hate before committing to a large bottle.
Negatives, the price may put some people off especially as they are tester size, but as I mentioned earlier a little goes a long way with these products. Current price is £9.99 from Amazon (June '13).
I have only recently tried the burts bees essential body kit for myself recently as I have bought a few too many presents so ended up with a few for myself which was a bonus. The Burts bees essential body kit happened to be one of these gifts. I ad in the past found this product was great as a gift for someone else and have now discovered it is also a great treat for yourself.
What do you get with this set:
This box contains 5 travel size products from the Burts bees range.nthe products included in this box are, a lip balm, foot cream, milk and honey body lotion, deep cleansing cream and hand cream. This box gives u a chance to try out 5 different product in a travel size bottle to decide if you like it before using the full sizes. Each product comes in different 'flavours' so each part of you body can smell differently amazing. My lips chap badly especially during the winter and the lip balm was very soothing and within a couple of days I did start to notice a big difference. This was the same as all the products I. Unfortunate enough to suffer from eczema so the winter is a horrible time of year for my skin and it's difficult to find product that not only don't irate the skin but actually help and with hurts bees products being all natural they did just that. My handbag in the winter consisted of the lip balm and hand cream and i also took them to work to use after washing my hands etc. the body lotion and foot crea I used first thing in the morning, before bed and after baths and showers. Which left my skin feeling soothed under my cloths instead of the usual irritated. So although this product is great for anyone. If like me you do suffer from any skins condition I would say this is a product that you can use confidently on your skin.
Price and where to buy:
I bought this product from boots for around £15 but I think it could have been on offer at the time so the price will very. It can also be bought from shop such as super drug and also online. Compared to other products similar to this but in my opinion you pay for what you get.
The packaging for this burst bees gift set looks exactly how you would expect a gift set to look. Presented nicely in a box with a see through window so that you can see exactly what you are buying. Honestly compared to similar products I do think this could go unnoticed on a shelf as the design isn't bright and bold or designed to grab your attention. I think this is a product you would buy after hearing about it instead of just buying on the off chance.
I use this brand on myself and my baby (baby burt's bee's).
Is great for your skin and the most important thing is that is very natural and keep's you clean and smelling great.
Is great for all types of skin. Keeps your skin healthy and clean at the same time.
Is worth the price you pay for it since you can take it everywhere in it's convenient travel size.
Don't let your skin suffer from the dryness that hotel soap causes. Take this travel kit everywhere and always look at your best and feel great at the same time.
I love natural stuff and this is why I use this brand.
The only disadvantage I see is that it is a little bit more expensive than other brands but at the end you have to think about what's best for you. Is better to pay a little bit extra and have a good radiant healthy looking skin than going cheaper and risk your skin to become dry, flaky and full of chemicals.
You can find this almost everywhere, discount pharmacies, big stores, and in amazon which is great since you get it at the front door of your own house.
