Burt’s Bees Essentials Burt’s Bees Kit Review

I love Burt’s Bees products.  I have been using them for a long time now and was thrilled to have the opportunity to review Burt’s Bees Essentials Kit!  I was sent a kit filled with 5 different essential goodies and I love all of them!  Not only are Burt’s Bees products fabulous and work as well as they claim, they are all natural – no harmful chemicals which I find very pleasing when it comes to skincare or beauty products!

So what is included in the Burt’s Bees Essentials Kit?

  • Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream (0.75 oz)
  • Hand Salve (0.30 oz)
  • Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Lotion (1 oz)
  • Coconut Foot Cream (0.75 oz)
  • Beeswax Lip Balm (0.15 oz)

There you have it, all these products are definitley essentials!  At least they are too me and another great thing is that they are easily carried with you in your purse or bag so they are always handy when you need them!

Let’s start with the Deep Cleansing Cream.  To use this product, wet face and with your fingertips, apply and massage the cream all over your face keeping it away from your eyes.  You can also use a washcloth if you would like.  Then rinse thoroughly.  The Deep Cleansing cream does wonders with removing make-up, dirt and excess oil from your skin.  It does add moisture with Aloe and Chamomile.  As soon as I applied the cream, it instantly felt like it was giong to work.  It feels so good on my skin and it leaves skin feeling clean and refreshed.  It feels cool – almost “minty” if that makes any sense.  I love the cream because it’s thick and it doesn’t run all over your face making it easy to keep out of eyes.  I was very surprised that it doesn’t dry my skin out like most facial cleansers tend to do to me.  It leaves my skin feeling soft and it actually looks healthier after using it every night!

The Hand Salve comes in a little tin.  This is great for when my hands get really dry and need a little more than hand lotion to do the trick.  It’s made with botanical oils, herbs and beeswax.  All you do is massage into your hands or even other areas of skin that are really dry.  It does a great job of softening those really dry areas and is also very soothing too!  The Hand Salve is great for areas that need extra moisturizing and it doesn’t take long for my skin to feel soft again!

The Naturally Nourishing Milk and Honey Body Lotion is fabulous!  I love the tick, creamy lotion and it doesn’t take much at all.  Skin softening milk, and natural honey is really nourishing and the scent is wonderful.  I love the scent!  It will keep skin moisturized up to 24 hours which I believe because most of the time, I only have to use it once a day.  The lotion is absorbed quickly, and it doesn’t leave a sticky or greasy residue at all.  I love how soft my skin feels afterward!

So far it all sounds really good right?  Well, how about Coconut Foot Cream?  I really hate saying it but I have horribly dry and sometimes cracked skin around my ankles and the bottoms of my feet.  I am constantly working on the problem.  Wow.  Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream has rescued me.  I thought I had everything under control with what I was curently using and was pleased with the product, but this was the first time I tried Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Cream and I immediately changed my mind – this is honestly, by far, the best foot cream product I have used.  First of all, the coconut scent is absolutely amazing!  Coconut oils are my best friend!  You should apply overnight and cover with socks.  I am serious when I say I have dry, cracked skin in those areas – sometimes it gets so bad it actually hurts.  I can now say, I haven’t been as pleased with any other product!  It soothes my skin and the dryness actually goes away!

Lip balm is a must for me especially in the colder months.  I get chapped lips really easily and I love using Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm.  I have been using this lip balm for a long time now.  I love the peppermint and as soon as I apply it, I can already feel it working.  It may feel like somewhat of a “medicated” feeling but it makes your lips feel “cool” and you can definitely tell it’s peppermint.  Immediately my lips feel so much better after applying and it really does a great job of healing and also protecting at the same time.  I have found that if I use it during these problem months everyday whether I have chapped lips or not, I don’t get chapped lips that often.  A lot of times I even use it under my lip gloss, lip color, or lip stick pretty often.  I like doing that because it also keeps my lips moisturized even after applying my make-up!

Not only does Burt’s Bees offer really awesome products, they are natural and safe, safe for the environment, and on top if it all, their packaging is made of and is recyclable – even the plastic tubes!  If you have a tin product, I think they come in handy to use for other things when the product is gone even though they are recyclable.  Want to know what else?  Burt’s Bees products come in sizes with the right amount of product for you to use before the expiration date so that you aren’t throwing out wasted product by the time they expire!

I really love Burt’s Bees products and what they are all about!  They are really great products that do as they claim – sometimes even better than I was expecting!
