This will be a review post on an awesome little gift set I bought myself a few weeks back. I present to you the Burt's Bees Tips and Toes kit, an awesome little gift set worth only $25, which is super value, and has some wonderful products in it! Some of them are now my staple products!
In this gift set you get a Almond Milk beeswax hand creme (mini 7g), Honey and Grapeseed oil hand creme (mini 20g), Coconut foot creme (mini 20g), Hand salve (mini 8.5g), Lemon Butter cuticle creme (mini 8.5g) and a Pomegranate lip balm (full size 4.25g). All for $25! I needed to say that again because a full size Lemon Butter cuticle creme is $15 for 17g!
I've had the chance to use these products for a few weeks now and I must say that I'm impressed so I will do a mini review.
I'm going to start with Burt's Bees Lemon Butter cuticle creme. I've been using this product for a couple of months now, as I bought the full size after reading wonderful things from other nail bloggers and finally seeing that my local Priceline had it in stock. It smells amazing and a little goes a long way so this tiny tin will last quite a while. I use this in conjunction with cuticle oil, I've recently been using Peita's Polish cuticle oil which is also amazing, my fingers love it! My cuticles have never looked better! My favourite thing about this is that I can apply it, give my cuticles a good massage, and in about 10 mins all the creme has absorbed into my fingers and doesn't leave a greasy residue. Awesome! I cannot stand greasy hands.
The mini tin can only be bought in the gift set, but the full size is 17g is $15 from Burt's Bees.
Next up, Burt's Bees Coconut foot creme. I have only used this a few times so far but it's incredible. I have pretty rough dry feet and I can slap this on after my shower before bed, put on some socks and by the morning they are amazing and soft. They soften the skin enough that pumice stones can actually do their job. I really want to use this in conjunction with another product I have, a foot peeling skin remover from LUS Asia, sounds kinda gross, but also works wonders. Oh and a plus this product smells amazing. This creme is very thick and sticky so putting socks on after applying is a definite must-do. $24.95 for 123g.
Now I have never been one to really use hand creme because with my job it's very important that I don't have oily hands and fingers. Burt's Bees Thoroughly Therapeutic Honey and Grapeseed oil hand creme has become my staple hand creme for both myself and my partner! Even he loves it! Fast absorbing, subtle smell, no greasy residue and leaves both our hands amazing and soft. Love it. Full size is 74g for $24.95.
Burt's Bees Hand Salve is great for when you may have been using your hands a lot or had them in and out of water and they are incredibly dry. This product is a bit oilier than the rest as it is meant to be a deep nourishing treatment. It states on their website that it is their most intensive hand treatment, this formula is packed with botanical oils, herbs and beeswax to moisturise hard-working, rough, dry hands. Sounds pretty perfect to me. This has been working really well on my stubborn cuticles and does wonders for my partners hands after he has been working with them all day. $24.95 for a 85g tin.
Nearly done! Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax hand creme is a lovely soft and fluffy hand creme that is intended to be used after washing your hands. Now I admit I haven't used this as much as the others because I've been loving the Honey and Grapeseed hand creme, but now that it's nearly run I will be using this. The few times I have used it it left my hands feeling rather soft. $19.95 for 54g jar.
Lastly is the Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil. This. Smells. Incredible. Leaves me lips feeling soft with a very subtle hint of colour. Not hugely long lasting, and I can see myself using it mainly for the smell than anything else, but not bad. You get a full size lip balm in this pack! $6.95 for 25g tube.
Once again I have to say I am hugely impressed with the products in this pack. I'm normally pretty fussy with hand cremes and such mainly because they either feel like their sitting on my skin, not absorbing, smell horrible or leave me amazingly oily and greasy. I am definitely looking forward to trying more Burt's Bees products!
