I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees, a brand which harnesses the power of Bees with a huge range of cruelty free products, all of which are almost 100% natural. The Burt's Bees Tips and Toes Kit is perfect for anyone new to the brand, giving you a chance to try six of their products perfect for pampering everything from your feet to your lips, all in generous travel sizes which last ages.
The Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream, 7g, is a luxuriously thick hand cream which is perfect for popping on at night before bed, leaving your hands beautifully soft and pampered by morning. With Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E which work to moisturise dry skin, and Beeswax which helps to seal and shield hands from the elements, it's amazing for this time of year when our skin is being beaten by cold wind and weather.
If you want something lighter, the Burt's Bees Thoroughly Therapeutic Honey & Grapeseed Oil Hand Cream, 20g, is perfect. Perfect for dry skin it utilises moisturising Honey, Jojoba oil and Rosemary Extract, that once massaged in leaves skin feeling soft as silk. I've been keeping this one on my desk and using it throughout the day whilst working, and it's worked wonders for pampering my hands with a non-sticky formula.
Our cuticles can easily suffer if left neglected, and keeping mine happy and healthy is easy with the Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, 8.5g. This stuff has been a favourite of mine for years, with a zesty scent of fresh zingy lemons, it's an intensive and natural cuticle treatment that works to moisturise and nourish. Holy grail product right there!
Pampering our feet is just as important as looking after our hands and cuticles, and the Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Cream, 20g, is a lovely way to keep your feet feeling softer and happier. With Coconut Oil, Lanolin and Vegetable Glycerin which work to revive and rejuvenate dry skin, alongside a hint of Rosemary and Peppermit Oils to refresh tired feets, it has a luxurious silky gel formula that feels instantly soothing and hydrating when applied.
For those of you who work (or play) outside often and find your hands really suffer for it, then the Burt's Bees Hand Salve, 8.5g, is a life-saver! I've used this a few times over the years but it's come in even more handy this winter as I've started to develop eczema in the centre of my left hand. Where hand creams and balms help to keep my skin softer and hydrated, they don't quite work to keep the eczema at bay or soothe the irritation for longer than an hour or so. Hand Salve is perfect, an intensive hand treatment that's full of Botanical Oils, Herbs and Beeswax, it works to moisturise hard-working, rough and dry hands - and has even helped soothe my eczema and keep the worst of it at bay!
Last but not least, the Tips and Toes Kit features another of my holy-grail products, a product I have repurchased time and time again. The Replenishing Pomegranate Lip Balm Tube, 4.25g, is formulated with antioxidant and replenishing Pomegranate Oil to leave lips softer, smoother and intensely hydrated, with the slightest hint of colour for a healthy and happy looking lip. I adore this stuff and really can't recommend it enough!
The Burt's Bees Tips and Toes Kit is a wonderful little set with so many gorgeous and super-effective products. A lovely way to introduce yourself to Burt's Bees or the perfect gift for a friend, what's not to love? Available at www.burtsbees.co.uk.
