Burt's Bees Tips And Toes Kit

I have three of  Burt's Bees lip balms all ready that I adore and have always been curious to try out their other products, but I'm always stuck on what to try out first. So I decided to purchase this little kit from Boots at £12.99. Which is a great way to sample some of the products. I haven't tried any of these products either, even this Pomegranate lip balm, which is full sized. All of the products are presented nicely and come with a little booklet on how to use your products.

Throughly Therapeutic Honey & Grapeseed Oil Hand Cream- None greasy and very light and does the job quickly. I do thought however hate the scent. It's very dull and doesn't smell like neither grapes or honey. It has this weird kind of papery smell.

Coconut Foot Cream- Wow, this is not a cream at all, more like a lipgloss for your feet with little grainy bits. It's a sticky gross coloured gel and smells like mint, not coconut.....not good....not happy.

Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream- Very thick, greasy and sticky. Could be moisturisng, but can't tell it's far too sticky to leave on my hands for too long it's a sticky magnet. Smells like marzipan but the fake not the cake kind.

Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream- Not a cream again, it's definitely a salve/balm. Very light and even texture but not for those with the roughest of cuticles. This has a nice sharp lemon scent which is yum!

Hand Salve- I feel like I need to be ill with a cold to use this as it smells like Vicks and I'm sure it's a vapour rub in a tin.
Replenishing Lip Balm With Pomegranate Oil- This is my least favourite Burt's Bees balm. I just don't get the scent, it's like a fruit that's gone too ripe and lost it's flavour. It has this weird yucky melon taste too. I don't find it as hydrating as their other balms either.
I'm am very disappointed in this kit since I only like the lemon cuticle cream, mind you now I know I won't be too curious with their products and I shall be just sticking with their three lip balms that I like especially Acai Berry, it's so hydrating and smells like sweets!

Have you tried any of these products and how do you like them?

Purchased at Boots


  1. I love the smell of the cuticle butter, it's soooo yummy. I also have the hand salve but I'm never really sure how to use it.

  2. I love that Almond Milk Hand cream! Best way to use it is apply before bed and set with gloves.

  3. RaeRae-I suppose you would just use it like a hand cream. :)

    Red lips, Black hair- I was thinking the same. I wouldn't be able to use it without them lol. x
