Burts Bees

I have tried Burt’s Bees products before, also from a gift set. In theory I really like the idea of natural based products, but sometimes the scents can be a bit off-putting.
This was a christmas present and its taken me about 3 months to get round to trying everything inside. There is a body lotion missing because I left it at my parents house. It wasn’t fantastic anyway and the scent reminded me of old milk.
I have had the Burt’s Beeswax Lip Balm before and I do like it, it’s great if you have super chapped lips.
I was excited to see the Lip Shimmer in Champagne because I have wanted to try it for a while. It is really nice and minty and has the same effect on chapped lips as the classic beeswax balm but it is not as soothing. I didn’t really like this particular shade as it was very pale for me and just did not suit me at all. I would like to try one of the darker shades though because it is rare to find a really nice moisturising lip colour balm.
The only peach facial scrub I have ever used is the St Ives one and I was intrigued to try the Peach & Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub. Unfortunately this product was probably my least favourite in the entire set. My face felt really gross and greasy after I washed my face, plus the peach bits are not very fine and scratched my face. I had to wash my face with my usual face wash after.
The Radiance Day Cream with Royal Jelly was a fairly good moisturiser but a little bit too rich for the day time. I didn’t really like the smell but it wasn’t enough to put me off using it. I don’t think I would repurchase this in full size.
Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Conditioner did make my hair shinier than usual, especially after a quick rinse with cold water.
Super Shiny Grapefruit & Sugar Beet Shampoo did clean my hair well but irritated my scalp.
I liked the Extra Energizing Citrus & Ginger Root Body Wash because it does have a very invigorating scent and did leave my skin squeaky clean.
Overall I did like this set and I think it is the perfect gift for somebody who likes to try different products. Unfortunately none of these products really measured up to my usual ones so I won’t be buying them in full size. The only product I would really recommend would be the Beeswax Lip Balm.
