Back in May I saw a mystery grab bag that Burt's Bees were selling, for the bargain price of £20! Instantly I was drawn in and ordered one straight away, and eagerly waited for my mystery grab bag to arrive. Unfortunately, there was however an issue with my order. And in the end I had to contact Burt's Bee's to get a replacement sent out, which they promptly did.

The Burt's Bees mystery grab bag is advertised as a bargain £20 bag with a £55 value of products inside. You can't go wrong really, can you? So what did I get in mine...

Quite a lot, isn't it? They really went to town with my grab bag! I think it was due to the confusion with the first bag! I can't believe I paid a mere £20 for such a huge amount of products! But that's not all. I also received, complimentary of the bag...

1 X Head to Toe Start Kit - £14.99
This includes in it
Another hand salve
A full size radiance eye cream
A lifeguard's choice lip balm
A super shiny grapefruit and sugar beet shampoo and conditioner 
A milk and shea butter body wash
A milk and honey body lotion
A soap bark and cahmonile deep cleansing cream
A peppermint foot lotion
A lemon butter cuticle creme
A nail file

A huge amount (and something I would really consider buying as a gift for a friend or family member, as it'd make a great little present) It comes in a little clear zip up bag, too. Which will be handy for travelling! 

This has got to be, without a doubt, the greatest beauty investment I've made, ever! The idea of a mystery grab bag is so fun and exciting, you don't know what you'll receive. But with mine it was plain to see that the value of the contents of the bag was well worth the gamble. I'm shocked by how much they sent me, as well as really happy as Burt's Bees is a brand I have tried and tested before, that I thoroughly enjoy using, but don't get to use enough of as each product alone can be quite pricey. This was a perfect way to try out a variety of products, for a bargain price! I don't know if I was just sent an extra amount to compensate for the confusion with my order, or whether other's received this amount too. Either way I am one super happy customer, and the month long wait I had between ordering and receiving my bag, was well worth it!

These bags are now currently out of stock but I know as soon as they come back in stock, I'll more than likely buy another. It's a great way to stock up on products and a great investment! 

Did you manage to grab one of these mystery grab bags before they went out of stock? What did you get in yours? What is your all time favourite Burt's Bees product? 

I will be reviewing each of these items individually as and when I use them.
