I am a fan of the Burt's Bees range and own quite a few of their products. Most of the products I own are from various gift sets and today, I will be discussing my use of this body lotion. I own a smaller, bottle version of this body lotion but would say the tube is the most practical packaging for this type of product. I own quite a lot of body lotions are whilst I favour perfumed lotions, I do like using less fragrant and more moisturising body lotions like this Milk and Honey one.
This body lotion is quite rich and thick in consistency. The white lotion is more like a cream really. Once applied to skin, the cream melts slightly and spreads like a dream across my skin. It becomes very lightweight and absorbs quickly leaving no residue behind. I am impressed by how lovely my skin feels after applying this lotion. It is very nourishing and incredibly gentle against my sensitive skin.
I have very dry skin on my arms and legs and more 'normal' skin on the rest of my body. I find this body lotion to be ideal for moisturising the extra dry areas. My skin feels instantly soothed and any irritation is calmed as soon as I apply this lotion. It is very cooling and I love the way it leaves my skin feeling and looking. My skin is left silky smooth and feeling moisturised deep down. If I apply this after my morning shower, I still notice that my skin is hydrated by bedtime. Extra dry areas on my knees and elbows are treated to an intense yet lightweight treat.
Whilst this isn't a highly perfumed body lotion, it does still smell lovely. I usually avoid products with honey as I'm not crazy on the scent but I do love the smell of this lotion. It is a subtle scent which smells very natural. When first applied, it has a fresh, almost minty undertone but this soon disappears and the remaining scent is milk with a touch of sweet honey. It is pleasant and leaves my skin smelling beautiful. The scent lingers for several hours but doesn't interfere with my choice of perfume.
This is one of my favourite body lotions to use when my skin is feeling a little neglected. It moisturises well and my skin reaps the benefits of the natural ingredients within the lotion. It is easy to apply and practical for when I am rushing around as it simply melts right into my skin with very little effort on my part. It is expensive but in my opinion, it is very much worth the higher cost as it performs great and because only a little is needed per use, the tube will last for ages. I notice that my hands feel really soft after smoothing this across my skin too. It is my favourite Burt's Bees body lotion.
Highly recommend - thanks for reading :)
Summary: a lovely, moisturising treat
