Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit promises to soften and care for your hard-working hands and feet. I tried the products and I’ll give you the scoop!
I picked up this cute Burt’s Bees Tips and Toes Kit recently to trial some of the collection before committing to the larger sizes. I love trial size packs! I had eyed off the Burt’s Bees collections many times before but was yet to try any of the products for myself.
The pack included the following products:
- Almond Milk Hand Creme
- Hand Salve
- Thoroughly Therapeutic Honey & Grapeseed Hand Creme
- Coconut Foot Creme
- Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
- Replenishing Lip Balm
A little bit about Burt’s Bees – all their products are at least 99% natural, with over half of their offering being 100% natural, and they specify this on the labels. The 1% or less accounts for synthetic preservative phenxyethanol, which they add to some of their water-containing products. They choose this preservative because it is a non-paraben, non-formaldehyde-releasing preservative and is used broadly in natural person care products.
I hated the smell of this crème and washed it off straight away and haven’t touched it again. The almond seemed to be the most overpowering, and it was a bitter smell. If you don’t like strong scents, this isn’t for you.
This hand salve is amazing. It smells ever so slightly of eucalyptus oil, which I think as an Australian I’m naturally drawn too. It works instantly, and is especially good for dry, rough hands. Mine have been chapping quite a bit lately and this hand salve has made them feel brand new again.
Another product that has quite an overpowering smell. I’m not a fan of grapeseed as a smell, and so I also washed this off. The crème has a runny consistency but it did feel very moisturising for the little time I had it on. Again, if you can’t handle strong scents this isn’t the hand crème for you. If in doubt, try to find a pharmacy with a tester!
This foot crème had a very thick, gel-like consistency and the smell of coconut is subtle. I used it straight after the shower at night, and put on some cotton socks afterwards. I found my dry heels were much softer by morning. I would definitely by again.
I used this cuticle cream along with the hand salve. My cuticles are always trouble, and they were softer and easier to manage after using the cream. I also love the subtle smell of lemon – very fresh.
I love this lip balm. In fact, it has taken place above all other lip balms that I currently own. The smell is subtle, it adds a slight pinky hue to your lips, moisturises and lasts a long time (I wear it to bed sometimes and I wake up in the morning with the feeling of dewy lips).
I’m hooked and keen to try some more. Whilst I did find some of the products scents too overpowering, I found others extremely pleasant. I would definitely purchase the hand salve, lemon butter cuticle cream, coconut foot crème and replenishing lip balm again. I’m also curious to try some of the other products in the range. This really is a great starter kit before committing to the larger, more expensive sizes.
