Burt's Bees Holiday 2013 Gift Sets

Burt's Bees has some new gift sets out for the holidays from bath and body products to cute little lip balms and glosses for stocking stuffers. I got to try a couple of their kits with some of Burt's nicest products in travel friendly sizes - The Head to Toe Kit (called Natural Body Care Kit on the Burt's Bees website) and Tips and Toes Kit. *Press Samples

Head to Toe ($13; burtsbees.com) (called Natural Body Care Kit on the Burt's Bees website)  features a Soap Bark & Chamomile Cleansing Cream, Hand Salve, Naturally Nourishing Milk & Body Lotion, Fabulously Fresh Rosemary & Mint Body Wash, Original Beeswax Lip Balm and the Coconut Foot Cream. I've tried everything from this except the Cleansing Cream (I'll report back on that shortly). The Milk & Honey lotion, while not the nicest smelling, is very effective. It retains moisture very well and keeps my especially scaly legs looking soft, longer. The Fabulously Fresh Rosemary & Mint Body Wash is uber fresh, very tingly and non-drying. I have the full size in my shower and absolutely love it. The Coconut Foot Cream is great if you don't have extremely dry feet. Its quite heavily scented, but leaves my feet feeling warm and cozy - definitely something you'd need to wear socks after. The Hand Salve is a thick, moisturizing hand balm with a super sharp scent. My husband is a bigger fan of this than I am - its quite greasy but tackles dry skin very well.

Tips and Toes ($13; burtsbees.com)  is another fabulous kit with everything you need for your hands and feet. It features a small glass jar of the Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand cream, a beeswax Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil, Hand Salve, Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, Thoroughly Therapeutic Hand Cream with Grapeseed Oil & Honey and a Coconut Foot Cream. The Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand cream is a beautifully scented cream for rough, dry hands. The scent is something I love, but can be a tad too strong for some. Again, very greasy, waxy, but very effective and better suited for night time. The Grapeseed Oil & Honey Hand Cream is slightly lighter feeling with a sweeter scent and the Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is a staple for me, definitely a favorite as far as cuticle creams and oils go - I've repurchased many little tins!

Overall, these are some fabulous kits by Burt's Bees and a nice way to try out all these products in mini sizes without breaking the bank. Most of these products are quite concentrated and thick, so a little goes a long way. If you, like me are a fan of Burt's Bees, definitely check these out!
