Burt’s Bees Travel Set

26 Mar

I’m a huge Burt’s Bees fan! I first found out about the brand two years back when I saw it in a magazine for winning the Best Shampoo category. Looked up on the brand online, checked it out at Myer and I was sold! So happy now that this brand is now available in more stores in Perth. They even have a few outlets in KL (envy!).

Started using their Soap Bark and Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream two years back. I was a bit sceptical about using it because of all the “oil” listed in the ingredients. I have oily skin and after reading dozen’s of magazine articles, thought I needed to stick strictly to “oil-free” formulas but I’m very glad to say that this cleanser works very well with my skin. I leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and if I leave in on for a couple of minutes, you can feel the menthol kick in, leaving you skin feeling refreshed! I loved it so much that I bought the boyfriend a tube to use and he’s on his second tube as well!

The second Burt’s Bees product I use is their Tomato Garden Toner. I skip the “tone” step of my skincare routine  very often and a toner’s a toner to my so I  can’t say much. But I can say that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling heavy or overly dry even though one of it’s main ingredient is alcohol. I’m not sure what’s the story on this product, whether it has been discontinued or not. I was told by the sales assistant in KL that it has been discontinued but I still see it in the shelves in Perth. I bought an extra bottle anyway just in case. 🙂

We’re all suckers for cute packaging and catchy advertising… Was out at Priceline one day and I spotted the travel set I saw last year. It’s a travel set (well duh. Miniature sized products) in the cutest mini metal luggage with the  RRP of $39.95. Not going to pay that price for something I don’t need… A few weeks ago tho, I saw the travel set still there but the price tag says $20. I checked with the cashier if it’s really $20 and I bought it!

Oh come on, how can you not buy it when it’s half price and come’s in this packaging!

The contents: Radiance Body Lotion, 2 lip balms, foot cream, hand cream, Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme, Super Shiny shampoo and conditioner and Extra Energizing shower gel.

Only used a few products from this set as I don’t really need them. *guilty*

The Radiance body lotion has mica in it, giving it a natural shimmer hence the name ‘radiance’. The consistency of the lotion is really light making it easy to apply. I’m not a big fan of the shimmer because the first thing that come’s to mind is Twilight. I glitter under the sun!

The Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme is super. You need to get it! It does a miracle if you have dry cuticles and nails.

After using the shampoo and conditioner, I MUST GET IT! Unfortunately I still have a few bottles of shampoo and conditioner waiting for me. It’s pricier than drugstore brands too at $20 a bottle so it just has to wait for a few more months. The fact that the shampoo doesn’t lather and foam like drugstore shampoos do takes some getting used to. I was sceptical as to how “clean” would my hair feel since it doesn’t lather but I was pleasantly surprised! Used it on greasy, sweaty hair after gym. After using the shampoo and conditioner it left my hair feeling very light and soft. It smells good too!

That’s pretty much all I have to say about the products.

I’ve yet to use the lipbalms because I just bought a tube of Maybelline’s Baby Lips.

You should really give Burt’s Bees a try! It’s good for you as it’s mostly natural products without all kinds of chemicals crap!
