Burt's Bee's "Tips & Toes" Kit





Bur'ts Bee's "Tips & Toes" Kit - £12.95 *

With mothers day fast approaching (Sunday for those of you who are useless with dates or have an awful memory), there have been an abundance of amazing little gift sets floating around which would make the perfect present, not only for your mum, but for any birthdays coming up, or even if you're interested in trying a brand for the first time. I have always been a huge fan of Burt's Bees, their lipbalm in particular is a firm favourite but I hadn't ever tried any of their hand creams or balms so this kit looked exciting. I was certainly not disappointed. I suffer with EXCEPTIONALLY dry hands, in fact even in the summer they aren't clammy like normal people. haha. Oh how I long for normal, clammy hands...

After the winter months, my hands are usually left quite parched and not all that nice to hold (sorry boyfriend). After trying out all 4 of the products above, I have come to the conclusion that dry hands are now a thing of the past. I'm not even exaggerating. I've tried endless amounts of hand creams, and the one thing that really puts me off them is that horrid, greasy feeling after applying it, and the amount of time it takes to sink in. I HAVE THINGS TO DO AND JARS TO UNSCREW YANNO? The hand cream in the tube (Thoroughly Therapeutic) sinks in really quickly, almost so quickly, you forget you just applied it, and no greasy mitts. It's perfect, and now it goes everywhere with me. The almond milk hand cream (the absolutely adorable one with the cow on it) is not so quickly absorbed and possibly best before bed, or for popping on tiny dry patches rather than your whole hand. I have also found the balms to be very beneficial. I've been applying the lemon cuticle balm around my nails for the past few days and i've noticed a great deal of improvement in that area too. I'm yet to try out the foot cream, as my feet are not really all that dry at the moment (thankfully they aren't like my hands in that aspect). Monkey feet anyone?

Such a cute little kit, very reasonably priced, amazing products, cute packaging & smell devine.
I'll leave you now to imagine me unscrewing jars with greasy hands and monkey feet! ;)

  1. This is a good kit, Burts Bees have very lovely gift boxes. My fave product of theirs is the tinted lipbalm! x

  2. That looks like a great kit. I've loved everything I've bought from Burts Bees apart from one handcream which was so strong the smell nearly knocked me over. I'm not imagining you grappling with jars...I *may* be laughing.

  5. I too hate greasy handcreams, try Soap and Glory handcream, don't be put off by the tacky pink packaging (I personally quite like it though), because the handcream is by far the best I've tried. No greasiness, just pure moisturisation. (if that's a word). xxx

  6. That really is an awesome kit. I've tried everything except the hand cream in the first pic. The foot cream is the only one I ever use! My feet are just as dry as my hands (bleck), and it's the only cream that's worked all day on my parched tootsies.

  9. Oh my god this is the cutest :D My hands get so dry when I'm at placement (student mental health nurse,) so something like this with pocket-sized bits will really help :D
    As someone else said, Soap and Glory make 'Hand Food' which is THE. BEST. EVER. In the world of hand cream. Trust!

  10. Greasey lotions are the worst. I always want to wash it off right after.
    My cuticles are always in some dry/bad state so perhaps j should give this a go.

    Ps. You gave me quite a fright thinking I was going to miss mothers day but then remembered its in May here in the States.

  11. Dear God! Thank you for the reminder about mother's day! Haha. Might try this out. I have three of the lip balms they offer and love them, so I don't think I'll be disappointed.

  14. I received this at christmas and was really excited as i had never tried Burts bee's so it was a good intro to their products. Some people will shoot me down for saying this but im not that keen on the smell however all of them are moisturising (havnt tried foot cream as i have coconut and lip balm because i dont like the smell!)

    so happy your blogging more now Zoe!x

  32. I always wish I could use Burt's Bees products, as I hear such great things about them. Unfortunately, due to the nature of my bee allergy, I end up having bad reactions to them (within seconds of putting on the lip balm, I looked like I had just gotten lip injections). Oh well, at least I have some good ideas for things to get my mom!

  46. I really want to try their shampoos and conditioners, they should have a set for that. I originally wanted to get the soap and glory hand cream that pretty much everyone raves about but since it's pretty hard to find here this burts bees handcream seems worth trying. :)
