Burt's Bees Tips and Toes Kit

I have been dying to get my mitts on this little set for ages but it was out of stock at all my usual choice of places to buy (where things are usually slightly cheaper). The set consists of 6 (mainly) mini's - 

- Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream 7g
- Burt's Bees Hand Salve 8.5g
- Burt's Bees Thoroughly Therapeutic Honey & Grapeseed Oil Hand Cream 20g
- Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream 20g
- Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream 8.5g
- Burt's Bees Replenishing Pomegranate Lip Balm Tube 4.25g

I see this kit as kind of an extreme, deep-moisture emergency supply! When using the products they all feel very luxurious and as if they are really going to make a difference to your tips and toes. It's also worth noting that the scent of the products I feel are of a rather 'acquired' nature. They aren't awful, but they are definitely unique. 

Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream - This has a very strong almondy-marzipany scent. It is quite thick which I think is the reason it absorbs really quickly and is not greasy. My hands feel so soft and moisturised after using this.

Hand Salve - I can't quite put my finger on what this smells of, it's kind of a spicy lavender (don't quote me on that!). It has a similar consistency to vaseline and I think is brilliant for those EXTRA dry bits like the very tips of my fingers. I love using this on my poor index fingertips after work as they are always sore from hitting the touch screen tills all day.

Thoroughly Therapeutic Honey & Grapeseed Oil Handcream - This is more of a general (while still an extra moisturising) hand cream. I keep it in my bag so it's handy whenever I feel my hands are in need a little tlc boost. Again, it absorbs really quickly and my hands feel lovely afterwards. 

Coconut Foot Cream - I don't tend to pay much attention to my feet but I have used this a couple of times and it is a nice product to use and it dries really quickly so you don't find yourself stuck to the chair while it takes an hour to absorb!

Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream - I can't say I've noticed an actual change in my nails since using this but it is really nice to use and smells lovely. I'm sure it is improving my nails but the way I abuse them with constant nail varnish remover and repainting them, it does have a tough job!

Replenishing Pomegranate Lip Balm Tube - This product alone is a good enough reason to buy the set. It really works against my horrible dry chapped lips and it has a kind of a warming scent which is even more lovely addition in this horrible weather!

I think this makes a lovely gift at usually between £10-£15 - for someone else or even to yourself as a little treat for your hands, feet and lips during these challenging winter months! I got mine here.
