Burt's Bee Gift Packs: Feel Good & Treats for your Sweets

Another gift idea's post for lovelies today! With amazingly effective and beautifully smelling products, it's not a surprise that Burt's Bees has become a beloved brand to many people over the years. You definitely cannot go wrong when giving someone a Burt's Bees gift pack ..well in my opinion anyway. I have two gift packs to show you today - Feel Good Gift Pack & Treats for your Sweets Gift Pack. 

For all those who aren't familiar with this brand, Burt's Bees specialise in natural products  for face, lips, hands, hair, feet and body as well as goodies for babies and men. Their products are made from natural ingredients such as beeswax, honey, botanical and essential oils, herbs, flowers and minerals. This means that not only do you look and feel good, you smell heavenly as well!

Enough waffle about Burt's Bees, let's see whats inside these gift sets! First up we have the Bee Good Gift Set. As the name suggests this gift pack was designed to pamper yourself and make you feel like a million bucks - and you obviously can't feel this way if you have dry haggard lips or hobo hands! This $29.95 gift set includes 4 items to help replenish and moisturise your skin - Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter, Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuaçu Butters Body Lotion, Shea Butter Hand Cream Repair and Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. 

If you're feeling and looking like you've been walking through the Sahara Desert for a couple years, this is just the cure for you! Haha, no but seriously, if you're looking for a great way to treat someone (or yourself) through this crazy holiday season or if you're in Northern Hemisphere and Winter is hitting you hard then this will do wonders. Not only do these products actually do what they say - they're available at such an inexpensive price! There are countless brands nowadays that produce ineffective products at unbelievably overcharged prices, that it really is a breath of fresh air to know that I am able to feel good at an affordable price!

I've said it a million times before and I'll say it again, I'm pretty sure I have the driest lips known to man kind, so it's not surprise that the Lip Balm is the clear winner in this gift set. Without fail, Burt's Bees lip balms are able to give life to my lips after I feel like they're about to fall off, oh and the smell doesn't hurt either. I've tried many lip balms over the years, but I will always stick by Burt's Bees (and Carmex & Korres) when it comes to nourishing my lips. If you haven't had the pleasure to experience a Burt's Bees lip balm I definitely urge you to try it out now!

Oh and I thought I would add in a few reviews from the Green Organic's website as well: 

 Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme

This natural nail treatment softens cuticles and fortifies nails. Sweet almond oil, vitamin E and cocoa butter moisturize. Then beeswax seals in the goodness. A touch of lemon oil makes your nails appear and smell incredibly clean and beautiful. And, with regular use, your nails will become stronger and dry cuticles will disappear.

Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion 

Pamper your skin with softening Cocoa and Cupuacu Butters and nourishing botanical moisturisers like Sunflower and Olive Oils. Indulge your senses with the rich aroma of Cocoa Butter and a hint of Vanilla. Clinically proven to moisture for up to 24 hours, Burt's Bees Richly Replenishing Body Lotion leaves dry skin feeling soft, smooth and healthy, naturally. For dry skin. Dermatologist-Tested. Absorbs quickly. Non-greasy formula.

Shea Butter Hand Repair Creme

Your hands deserve a buttery treat. This super rich natural hand cream is perfect for a daily indulgence. Sunflower oil and glycerin are infused with the all-natural goodness of shea butter and essential botanical oils like macadamia nut, rosehip, lavender, neroli and borage, that impart antioxidants and fatty acids to nourish your skin, nails and cuticles.  

Next up we have the Treats For Your Sweets Gift Set - this pack includes Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand Creme, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate OIl and a Burt's Bees nail file. This set was crafted to give your other half the tender love and care they deserve - besides it's their hands and lips you'll be touching!

One of the most raved about products from the Burt's Bees range is the Almond and Beeswax hand creme. I hadn't tried this until I received this gift pack and boy oh boy am I kicking myself now that I've waited this long to try it! My hands felt indescribably silky smooth after using this bad boy - you only need to tiniest amount and you've got the softest hands on the planet. The one thing I will admit about this hand creme though is that the smell can be a little off-putting. The scent is quite strong and overpowering, but if you can get past that you will have no dramas this. 

Green Organics had this to say about this hand creme:

Considering all that your hands are exposed to every day, it's not surprising that the skin on your hands ages eight times faster than the skin on your face. Sweet almond oil, aloe and vitamin E help keep them soft and smooth. This 100% natural hand cream has a sweet fragrance that makes it a favorite of everyone from moms to mechanics.

Both packs include wonderful products from the Burt's Bees range that any body would love to receive. I personally would love someone to give me the Bee Good Gift Set as it has such lovely products that are definitely more suited towards my preferences. It's important to treat yourself and others once in a while, so why not do it during the holiday season?

  3. I love Burts Bees! I actually haven't tried their lip balms before (I really need to, I have no excuse as I can always get 25% off Burts Bees when I am at work!) but I have tried the Shea Butter Hand Repair cream and it is amazing! Very thick to lather on but it is so moisturising, perfect for my dry hands :) The Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme looks great, and the little jar with the cow lid is so cute! Definitely will try out a tester for that soon :)
