Burt's Bees Grab Bag

Hello! I thought I start off my first post with one of my recent purchases. After reading Essie's blog mentioning an absolute bargain on Burt's Bee product. I found myself on their website and purchasing the Grab Bag before common sense kicked in.
The goodies inside are worth around £55 but I only paid £20. BARGAIN! 
I've never tried any of Burt's Bee products before and I thought this would be a great introductory for me.


Here's what I got inside my bag...

To be quite frank, receiving my order and seeing what products I got was more exciting than the products itself. The bag was quite disappointing...4 of the same exfoliating body wash (x2 full sized & x2 travel sized), 2 body lotions and 2 lip shimmers and 2 lip balm. Keyword here is duplicates! 

Goodies inside the tin
I will definitely be taking the travel sized body wash, and Lifeguard Choice Lip balm with me when I go Egypt next week (yeey!). However I dunno what to do with the body lotions, it contains shimmer. something I quite dislike unless it's eyeshadow. 



Although, this grab bag was a bit of a let down for me. I did find a star product.


Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream


This cuticle cream is awesome. I leave this by my desk and use it every so often leaving my cuticles all cute and soft. The scent is very similar to Lush Lemony Flutter Cuticle Cream but the consistency is more balmy. Although I have been a major fan of the Lush's one I find this one to be better. 


The grab bag is still on offer if you would like to try it out. 
Did anyone else buy the grab bag? What did you get?

    1. The body wash is only okay, it's not the best one I've ever tried. As for the lotion I haven't used it yet cos of the shimmer! x

    1. I think Lush's one is better as a multi functional product - it's great on cracked feet and other areas like knees and elbows! But I prefer burt's bees one solely for the cuticles :) x
