An Introduction To Burt’s Bees
September marked 30 years since Burt’s Bees began selling their amazing products and I have somehow managed to live that whole time without trying any. I’m not really sure why as I love that all of their products are so natural. It all started with a lip balm and has now grown into a full range with gorgeous products.
I was sent loads of lovely products to try out and some to offer as a giveaway. Here are my first thoughts on them:
Hydating Lip Balm with coconut and pear – I got sent two of these and I’m so glad as I would not have been able to resist using it. The smell is just amazing. I’ve been using my stick every day under matte lipsticks as it’s not too greasy but feels really nourishing.
Milk and Honey body lotion – This is one of the prizes so I haven’t used it but it smells DIVINE. It also has coconut, grape seed oil and vitamin E.
Tinted lip balm in ‘Blush Orchid’ – this is a really pretty lip product that leaves a light pink wash of colour on the lip. It’s not quite as hydrating as the previous lip balm but is great for when you need moisture but want a bit of colour too.
Beeswax and Banana hand cream – Another product that smells like heaven. I’m a big sucker for banana scents, but the beeswax gives it a bit of dimension so it’s not too sweet.
Eye Cream with cotton extract – A lightweight eye cream that hydrates and counteracts under-eye puffiness. I haven’t tried this as it’s another prize but the natural properties of this really appeal.
Lemon Butter cuticle cream – Ever since this package landed on my desk I have been OBSESSED with this stuff. It’s a thick balm and I rub it into my cuticles as many times as day as I can. It sinks in really quickly and also smells so incredible – the lemon is really refreshing and clean smelling. I’m so pleased I have another pot of this to giveaway as I want everyone to try it!
Lip Gloss in ‘Autumn Haze’ – this is a really flattering lip gloss in a warm nude shade with finely milled glittery flecks mixed in to make your lips shine. The packaging for these glosses is really lovely as well, with embossed honeycomb on the lid.
Lip Shimmer in ‘Strawberry’ – This is another lip tint lip balm. The previous lip tint is more solid, whereas this is a bit softer. It also smells minty and makes your lips a bit tingly which I love.
Lip Shine in ‘Pucker’ – A pretty standard lip gloss that is strawberry scented. Nothing really more I can say!
Hand Salve – A really rich balm that I’ve been rubbing into my hands and elbows every evening. It smells quite strong, almost medicinal…a bit like Vicks Vapo rub but in an amazingly delicious way! It sinks in very quickly and leaves skin feeling super soft and well looked after.
Burt’s Bees Basics pack – this cute little pack has a honey lip balm with Vitamin E and a honey and grape seed oil hand cream. I love little sets like this, they’re great for stockings or little gifts.
Shea Butter hand repair cream – This hand cream is so rich and nourishing but I really didn’t like the smell. I don’t know what it is about it that I don’t like but it’s quite strong. I might use this on my feet during the winter so I can’t smell it!
Overall, this range has really wowed me. I feel like I’ve been missing out by not having some of these products in my life!
