Burt's Bees Body Butter & Lip Balm Set

New for the holidays from Burt's Bees, the Body Butter & Balm ($12.99) set features the Cranberry & Pomegranate Body Butter and the Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil, all in full sizes. The set also comes in an ultra-moisturizing Honey & Shea variant.

The Cranberry & Pomegranate Body butter is a rich, hydrating body butter with a 99% natural ingredients list. The body butter is very nourishing and sinks in super fast, considering how rich it is. It is quite thick, so you'll need far less product than a regular moisturizer. It does smell quite strong, extremely fruity and the scent lingers around for quite a long time. Because of the natural ingredients, these body butters tend to separate faster and the oils tend to collect at the sides of the tub, which makes them not so convenient to travel with. On the plus side, it does a fabulous job of softening dry skin and retains moisture really well, so you don't have to re-apply until the end of the day!

The Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil is a clear, non waxy lip balm for chapped lips, formulated with 100% natural ingredients. It does have a rather medicinal smell that fades fast and leaves lips looking slightly glossy and healthy. It is a lovely lip balm to be used anytime during the day or night. It's not the ultimate cure for overly dry lips, but does the job really well without breaking the bank.

Overall, a great way to try out a couple of nice Burt's Bees products at a pretty neat price. The packaging is lovely and the products don't disappoint either!
